October Is For Self-Portrait

Journal Entry: Tue Oct 14, 2014, 7:13 PM
From The Founder

Where have I been? I don't know! I turned in one direction, and it was the beginning of August, I turned another and it was the end  of September! I figured I may as well wait until the end of September to write to you all again. And look at what happened...It's the middle of October, and I'm just now getting to you. I haven't forgotten you, just neglecting. I've been involved with some "issues", and had to wait before the issues were "un-issued" to become resolved.  And now, here I am.

Hey, I want to do something for Halloween.

Let's submit old or new Halloween theme deviations into the right folder (Featured) so that it's in the Slide Show. It must be a Halloween theme deviation to be part of the competition.  My favorite ones will receive a special prize. So dig out your Halloween stuff that you've already created or new deviations, and submit them to the the Feature folder starting today.

 Do date is Halloween,Thursday, October 31st. 

Come and relate, create, participate,  and you may get something cool from me.  I don't want to see a handful of  entries that will make it difficult to find the best ones. Okay?
Let's this be a real competition

We Lost Our Super Group Status

:bulletblack: Yeehaw!! HumanConditions is 4 years old!

Still, we weren't able to update our Super Group status.  That saddens me, simply because we've lost some great perks that makes a Super into the Super Groups. I ran out of  the extra page space, and we no longer have a poll. I have to "work around" to use a couple of group specialties.   

At least we're still together, right? So keep Submitting and I'll keep supporting you and giving features all the time.

:bulletblack:If you are a member of HumanConditions, and your works deserve to be noticed, keep submitting, keep participating in activities,
so that we can keep this group going. :)

Standard Group Information

:bulletblack: Each month our Slide Show features the gallery of one of our human conditions.  This month theme is "Humor". You can find the written literature for "Humor" is in the gallery HERE, inside the appropriate folder.

:bulletblack: If you would like to submit literature or a visual deviation for  the current theme, please do, so that it's included in our Feature for the month.

:bulletblack: If you're a writer, please read over the "Literary Guidelines" that are found on our on our About Us page. This will let you know what we're looking for in your poetry and prose submissions.

:bulletblack: Please keep in mind, if we decline a deviation, we're "not" declining "you", so please don't take it personally.  Remember, arguing, even in the guise of being "informative", with the Visual or Literary Co-Founders, and especially with me,  will only result in you being removed from the group. We don't mind questions, or inquiries into why you were declined, just be nice about it, and keep it brief.

Very Important! About The Interaction Between Members And The Group Staff Members

:bulletred: There is a group rule concerning unnecessary comments from you after we've made a decision to decline a deviation.

You have to let go of the fact that we didn't think a particular deviation was right for our gallery, even if you think so. A large majority of groups just decline your deviation without a comment,  right? And we give a reason because we believe you should know why we declined. When you make an unnecessary comment after the fact, it can be very unnerving. And if I see a long response to a decline, I don't even take the time to read it. So you're just wasting your own time writing to me or the head of Literature.

This kind of behavior will be less tolerated. We will not argue with you...I rather remove you from the group then have you argue with one of the staff. So please keep this in mind when you want to disagree with us. Life is just too short.

If you ever have questions or suggestions for the group (and I mean realistic questions or suggestions), please contact us by using a group note, and I and the staff will get back in touch with you.

Thanks for reading and have a good month.

Human Conditions

Welcome to Human Conditions! I see it as a combination of the two groups which inspired it, #So-Often-Bled and #Emotions-in-art. The edginess and imagination of #So-Often-Bled with the basic premise of #Emotions-in-art, capturing the range of emotions we experience as human beings.

We are not for everyone. We are for serious artists of any media whose work deals with emotions and the condition of being human.

We would rather be a small, interactive group than a large group where everyone dumps their latest deviations. We want quality, not quantity.
