To all those who are new to the club, welcome! To all those that have stuck with us here since I began it back in '08, thanks for staying and I hope you've enjoyed yourselves.
The past months have been a bit of a lag. I lost interest in IY quite a while back but have been sticking with the club because you're all too awesome to just forget about.
Also, hot demons.
Our last contest didn't really get any attention despite having a big prize because it didn't start until forever and then ended too quickly. Our gallery suddenly got really complicated thanks to the new system (I admit that I was having a lot of trouble with it since I hadn't designed it nor intended it to be so strict). This era of doldrums was characterized by Emo-Shukun (now *Eli-Ri
) having to do pretty much ALL the work around here in terms of submitting and organizing - which I felt pretty awful about - and then culminated in her leaving without me noticing and suddenly we have hundreds of deviations that have expired and only me to deal with them.
I just went through all of them and submitted them myself - they're only waiting for your approval as the artists - and now I'm going to ask for people to volunteer as administrators.
I'm also going to attempt reorganizing the gallery to make it really simple to work with. If you're interested in being an admin for IYClub, please send a note!
Most of the duties are fairly simple, and as long as you understand the bulk of the gallery rules then awesome. If not, well, give it a try anyway. I'm looking for three to five people to help out, which would reduce a huge amount of work into easy little sections.
I'd also like to have a contest to get back into things, so please suggest some themes! It can be anything from the winter holidays to college life to weird dressup situations that always get laughs.
