Gastown Nights II by Val-Faustino

Do you know the situtation when something is against your preference, but still you cannot deny it? We face this daily when we receive submissions that definitely against our rules, but has the special extra that makes us want the image. A disturbing watermark, an unwanted border, lack of focus that takes part of creating mood, but against our rules, heavy editing etc. may give us some headache.

Now we decided to change this situation. We devised a special folder within our gallery for those images that conflict our rules and expectations, but have something that we feel so good that we want to promote. We have a new folder for these works, called TGTD = Too Good To Decline. This is a special folder that is view-only for the public, even for members. Our staff will decide about submissions from the normal ones, and we will move the privileged ones at our sole discretion about promoting. It is in trial period now (June 2015) and the selected pictures have to receive two positive votes to escape rejection and find their places at this special folder. Up this point it seems a worthy practice.

There are some genres and types of images that are strictly forbidden even from TGTD folder. We will reject even the best, DD-winner and billion-times-viewed images if they have expressive nudity, gore, violence or hate content.

You may want to see our Rules Check List and any question about this new stage of promotion is welcomed here.

Hello dear members of Photographyworld

although this is a group with a large amount of members, there's just a tiny team of admins and no founder active for a long time.

THE REQUIRED VOTES HAVE CHANGED INTO 2 instead of the 3 we had before. The waiting time for you should not be too long but we strive to decide on your submission within 4 days. Please have some patience :)

Please be aware to submit only your best and also do not make the mistake to submit into the wrong folder ;) We do notify you most of the times when you have submitted into the wrong folder but in order to create a better group we do not have the time for this actually.

New Featured Artist ideas and journal features are being worked on.

Thanks for your patience and we hope to see the best of your work :D

Thanks for your understanding!

dALinkSystem is a Group dedicated towards increasing artists exposure by helping others and themselves through a simple and effective "Linking" system. The idea:

"Link another artists submission in your artist's comment box. It helps everyone's exposure and finds undiscovered art."


♣ The Link System was originated by TheFulkrum in May of 2009. What began with a few "Linkers" has grown into a large "Linkers Community" of caring deviants who utilize The Link System to help increase their exposure while helping others.

Before anyone misinterpret the last comments: we are up and high and working! The expired artworks divided the admins and cannot reach definite decision in time, but this doesn't means that the group is abandoned or ceised its work. See our journal up there ;)
(If you want to help us to avoid such situations, you may want to consider to join us as admin. See the journal again for the details ;) )
