:iconheart5plz: Our Group’s MEMBERS of THE MONTH :iconheart5plz:

Thank you to these fabulous Members who have been loyal to our Group in various ways, and for a while now!
For example, doing things like:
Voting in THIS here- our Monthly Event, Supporting our Articles with Comments and/or Fav's, Supporting our Themes by Participating in them and Promoting them, Supporting our CONTESTS by participating and promoting and/or donating prizes/points, supporting the group through donating points, or helping out other members when they have a question and by faving each other's work, or simply submitting work regularly, and even other ways, too! :nod:

(Of course NO single MEMBER of the MONTH is doing ALL of these, that doesn't seem possible!... but there are some Members, WHO strive as much as they can... :nod: )

How kind and generous of them! :nod:
We are very grateful for all they do and for being such valuable Members of our Group here! :heart:

:community: Becoming A Part of Unframed-Nature's Admin. TEAM :community:

:note: If you would be interested in becoming a part of our Wonderful Admin. TEAM,
PLEASE :note:NOTE:note: ME, TeaPhotography.

:note: You should LOOK at our APPLICATION, first, and answer as many questions as you can or just simply feel like answering.

It's SO much more INFORMAL than it actually looks- REALLY! :nod: :D
It just gives us, the Admins., a little idea, as well as YOU, our newest Admin., a general idea of things. :aww:
:eager: Administrator Application for Unframed-NatureUnframed-Nature's Application for Administrative Position
Accepting Applications for Administrator Positions at Unframed-Nature is now: OPEN!
Before you apply, please know that volunteering for a large and active group here on dA, such as Unframed-Nature is a real and true commitment, which will take up some of your time on at least a weekly basis, maybe more.
Unframed-Nature is special in many ways, but from an Administrative view point, it is very special because we have always had good luck with our current Administrators, most of which have been with the Group, as Administrators, for a very long time.
We are a very friendly Team, both with each other, and with the Members, as well. This means when we do have to decline works, we do give a reason, and we are friendly about it.  It means, that upon occasion if there is something that we disagree about within the Admin. Team, we disagree nic

:note: You do NOT have to be qualified in every area, AT ALL, to become a part of the team!
I certainly am not! :giggle:

So think about it, and if you are a Member of our group, and would like to be involved a bit more,
WE just might be the GROUP for YOU! :la:
