There's either been a glitch in dA's group system or an upgrade of some sort.
Where you the members used to only be able to only select the "featured" gallery, y'all can now choose any of them. This has led to people are submitting their photo into galleries where they otherwise wouldn't belong & thus causing confusion to people wishing to view said galleries. The consequence is it forces us to either keep those worthy photos pending for approval a lot longer than necessary until we can figure out a better solution or simply reject them outright. We'd move them ourselves but A. finding them & B. moving the pictures to the approriate gallery takes up a lot of our time. I want to be as inclusive as possible but have to be mindful of those who wish to view said galleries & offer them a sense of order.
Until this is resolved if everyone could MANUALLY submit your pictures to the "featured" gallery as was originally intended, it'd be greatly appreciated.
