January's Top Submissions of Unframed-Nature

Journal Entry: Thu Feb 9, 2012, 9:16 AM

Welcome to January 2012’s Top Submissions of Unframed-Nature.

:bulletblack: FIRST-OFF
:note: Please NOTE I will be away from dA and the internet from:
FEB. 16 - FEB. 28th
My Last Day: FEB. 15th  I Return: FEB 29th

I have a trip I need to take, where things have come up, and I am visiting family who I have not seen in a very long time.
It will be “crunch-time” when I return, but I will do my best to close and open folders and get voting going. Please be patient, as it IS, and will be a difficult time for me.
Thank you for understanding.
:thanks: :aww:

:bulletblack: NEXT
Our Contest:… which has less than 2 days left...
has been updated with just a few more POINTS. :points:

I will be trying my best to have voting organized and in progress before I leave and while I am away... :)

Thank you for being here whether you are a Member yet or not!
We welcome you and your support! :thanks:

Since the beginning of January 2012, we’ve grown by almost 200 Members!
:wow: :party: :party: :party: :wow:

So a really BIG welcome to all of our NEW MEMBERS!

:clap: :clap: :clap:

Thank you to our loyal Members who have been submitting to our Group for a long time now. Without you, we wouldn’t be here.


We had superb voters turn-out for January 2012, and I want to thank you for the feedback on the new voting system, too! :rose: :thanks:

I was not sure it would be that positive, because I did not know if my directions would be good enough to understand. I can’t believe how well it went, and I got so many great comments about the process! So much so, that I was really surprised!
:omg: ;) :thanks:
So, wow, okay, good, that’s great then! :thumbsup:

And, thank you as always, to you awesome special voters, who took the time to VOTE!

Let’s continue to submit our own BEST QUALITY work, enjoy it, improve upon it, enjoy the work of others, and Nature in general. It’s what it’s all about-
combining our art with our love of Nature, and coming together under that commonality!

Without further ado...

Please Enjoy The Voted Top Submissions of January 2012.

[:note: Each section/folder has a small group, at the top, where those had received just slightly more votes. The others are in no particular order.]

:clap: Promotions to MODERATORS :clap:

These two Contributors were very recently promoted to MODERATORS of this Group. For now, they will simply keep a closer eye on the gallery folders for any work that has been misplaced into incorrect folders, and moving them. They can also help, by keeping a closer eye on any extra important Group Notes, should they arise, as far as Noting the Founder.
However, in many cases, when the Co-Founders see them, they would likely be able to help you- simply I would like to know what is going on, plus it may be something I may end up needing to see.
[:note: Co-Founders can do ANY of what the Moderators are doing, if need be, and they continue to provide assistance to them, as needed.]
