Is this group still alive, my submissions expired?
Pabzzz Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2014
hi ,yes it is , your deviation is already in the group and i can't add it twice, this is why they expired :)
Cidiene Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2013  Student General Artist
Haha! Love the idea of this group and the french reference as well!
So many great Masters have been refused from the Academics Art and are now celebrated like Masters they already were!

Also, I do understand that for a group to survive and have a little organization, there is criteria to fit, sometimes, I also felt some are a little to quick to judge, and not really open minded ;).

Keep going!
Pabzzz Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2013
Hey ^^ salut ! merci c est cool comme message!
on a eu cette idee avec non-nobis-domine car on en avait marre de se faire refuser pour rien ou par méchanceté souvent :D
Disons qu'on a fait ce groupe car on pense que beaucoup d art refusé est en fait tres interessant :)d'ailleurs je suis bien content de voir des gens poster ici dans ce but :)

merci d etre passée par la :)

Mais de rien!
J'ai tendance à dire que chacun a sa vision des choses, qu'il est inutile de prendre la mouche. Quand on crée; c'est d'abord et avant tout pour soi. Ce serait triste de ne créer que pour avoir un public. Alors si certains dédaignent, bah... Et alors?

Par moment je me suis vexée de certains refus [non expliqué - et j'avais la flemme de demander les explications], je me suis dit que leur standing devait être plus haut que mon niveau actuel, et bah, c'était inutile de s'en offusquer, je n'ai qu'à me faire plaisir en continuant autre chose ou en me diffusant ailleurs: ce ne sont pas les rois du monde ;).

Mais je sais bien qu'il y a vraiment des abus par des gens auréolés de leur nouveau "pouvoir" de modération -haha! Ce n'est pas non plus évident d'être modérateur (je parle d'expérience)!

Par contre, au commentaire du dessous qui parle de groupe n'acceptant qu'une deviation par mois: souvent ce sont de très gros groupes qui pensent aussi à ne pas inonder les gens qui les ont watché (personnellement j'ai désactivé les déviations de beaucoup de groupes, je préfère aller consulter les catégories des groupes de temps en temps, plutôt que d'être noyée sous les déviations), et perso, je trouve pas ça plus mal. ça oblige les gens à choisir le meilleur de leur galerie (c'est généralement ce qui est demandé, pas une question de niveau, sauf bien sûr, quand on tombe sur des enflures ;)) et nous permets de ne pas mourir écroulés sur les œuvres à regarder (surtout quand t'es sur DA depuis un moment, tu finis par avoir pas mal de gens que tu suis!). Bon après, si c'est pour une toute autre raison (je me demanderai bien laquelle), là... :)

Et merci à toi pour tes favs :heart:
Pabzzz Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2013
hey !!! salut! :) desolé pour le temps de réponse  tardif.
oui je suis bien d accord, tous les groupes qui refusent ne sont pas forcement cruels , il y a des exceptions heureusement, et puis j espere qu on pase pas pour un groupe sectaire non plus pour certains hehe^^ car on veut juste que les gens soient content de pouvoir venir partager et regarder  ca ici :)si ca peut effacer un peu du dégout suite ŕ un manque d ouverture d esprit de certains groupes  :)
