Under Construction Sign by Mirz123 REMINDER Gallery Makeover Project JournalsGreetings Deviants! 
As I have no doubt most of you have heard from Moonbeam13's journal, a lot of the galleries here on DeviantART are having a makeover. This largely consists of merging and getting rid of categories, but please take a read of the original journal for more details. :)
I am sure a lot of you have seen these gallery makeover journals floating around already, but here is a definitive list of all the journals so far. Please note that not all galleries are on this list, more may be added later. Also some of these links may be updated in future, and we'll be sure to update the link here as neccessary. :la:
Please comment on the appropriate journals for each area if you have an opinion as to how each gallery can be updated. Remember the more opinions the better so share this journal, and lets get as much of the community involved as we can! :dummy:

:dalogo: Gallery Makeover ProjectHello everyone :)
Recently my team and I worked tirelessly on a project to help improve the gallery descriptions and thumbnail examples.  While that project was indeed tedious with almost 4,000 categories in our system, it was also educational.  What I learned from sorting through thousands and thousands of categories was that we have a lot of redundancy and a lot of categories that seem to have been created on a whim that are now simply homes for junk.
Over the years, the desire to appease niche communities and people who just wanted a specific area has led to some categories that go up to 4 levels deep, and it's really no wonder it's so confusing for people to figure out where to submit their artwork.
The conclusion I've come to is simplicity.  While I'm not about to rip apart everything and make 6 stand alone categories, I do believe that there is a lot we can do to simplify the category tree.  That includes some of the following:
1. Merging categories that ma

So exciting! We'll keep an eye on this project, once finished it might help us improve our galleries too!

I think DA prevents duplicate submissions actually... at least, I know I've seen it tell me it can't submit to a group because a deviation is already in that group. :nod: So, while the site may be acting up, I don't think you need to worry about it being because of anything you did. :hug:

It's very rare I make mistakes like that and even then it's normally by an unknown site glitch. But really 95% of what I submit to here is left to forever pending then expiring :depressed:.

Do you mean expiring in this group or in groups in general? You can always poke me if something expires in this one and I'll have a look. :nod: I know a few years ago Cathy mentioned not having as much time as she would like to approve stuff in this group and had asked for more help managing it. I'm not sure how much help she actually got, so if you were interested in helping to approve submissions she might still be willing to accept another admin. You'd have to note reverse-will if you're interested.

Why did you let my work expire?

I apologize - I hadn't been on dA for a while and submissions got backed up. Please resubmit if you'd still like to :)

Thank you for accepted me, and I'm sorry for I think submitting over 5 pieces for today :blushes:.

You accepted all the works but one of them the other day. That was left to pending.
Now more pieces have been accepted by this group, and that one piece from days ago is still in pending.
Is this group going to let it expire?
