It is our philosophy that this is the Group’s Group, :heart: and so this particular Monthly Activity is open to ALL Members. :aww:
Simply Watch :eyes: for the Group Blog about it on the last or first day of each month.

It is truly a wonderful and loyal commitment to our Group, to take time out each month to look through the beautiful work in our folders, and choose works for our monthly Top Submissions, and believe me, I KNOW it is not easy... given the extreme talent we have here. :aww:  
Not to mention, it takes time to do this, and we are ALL very busy. :nod:

And given that we are a large group, we DO need enough Members to vote, to give a nice enough representation of what is reflected in our folders.

So, as you can see, this is pretty important, all the way around for our Group!

It is why, it is very important to recognize those Member and Admins., of our Group, who are very helpful by participating in this process for us, and therefore supply us with this amazing monthly activity. :thanks:

Some even voted in two of the months, and some in ALL three! :aww:

Whatever amount of help that’s been volunteered,
It is GREATLY APPRECIATED!

Without further ado....

The Song of Leaving BirdsOf tired feathers silken touch,
The ancient tale of pilgrimage
When maple leaves turn red and gold
The soaring spirits know no cage
Goodbye to mists and fading fern
To silver threads of gossamer
The rosehips red and bitter sloes
Until the spring comes young and fair
Goodbye to songs in dreamy dusk
And the warm nests of sunny youth
When wings are weak, the will is strong
And stars will guide us to the South
To the far lands where winter winds
Do not have power over Sun,
So we can return in the spring,
Because home... home is only one.

There was one other wonderful member who had participated so greatly, by voting on our Monthly TOP SUBS...
but I couldn't feature her, because she de-activated her account. :hmm:
I always feel sad about that, but... I truly hope she could know how much she was appreciated, in various ways!
:heart:


:iconlovewhiteplz: Thank You Admins. for December! :iconlovewhiteplz:

Due to various reasons, for DECEMBER we had an ADMIN. Choice Month for our Top Submissions of Dec. 2012.

A couple or few times a year, we do it this way, which does lighten the amount of work for me, but in all honesty I prefer to open it to the total Membership, since we believe this is the Group's Group! :heart:

I am SO happy with my fellow-Administrators. They are excellent people and artists to work with, and they do work SO hard for this group, believe me!  :heart:

These featured here, may be repeated as having voted in the other months, already mentioned,
but I wanted to give an extra feature to the following Administrators who helped me by voting in The Top Subs of DECEMBER 2012, so that I could put that monthly article together.

If any Admins. are missing below, they MAY very well be included above, where they helped in those months instead.

or maybe just not familiar with this enough yet,

Please read about the changes at our Group:

COMPLETE FAQ and Folder Rules for Unframed-Nature:iconhappysunplz: Welcome to Unframed-Nature,
and to Our NEW Complete Group FAQ & Folder Rules for 2013!
:iconhappysunplz:
:iconcip25::iconcip26::iconcip27::iconcip28::iconcip29::iconcip26::iconcip25:
:iconwhiteflowerplz: Introduction and Welcome! :iconwhiteflowerplz:
First, I would like to take a moment to wish ALL of our Admins., Members, and Friends of our Group,
A TRULY WONDERFUL YEAR in 2013!
:iconnewyear2plz:
Below you will find our Group's New FAQ, New Folder Rules, and New Folders for 2013.
This Group News Article, intends to contain everything you need to know, in order to understand what we are about at Unframed-Nature, and what types of art work we are looking for, in each one of our folders.
We have made a few changes to our current folders, in order to hopefully clarify a few issues we've had during the past year, and we've added a few NEW folders, in hopes to give more meaning to our group, with both a


A few of the changes DO affect our five original general folders,
and the changes include a few NEW FOLDERS!

:la:

The above IS a COMPLETE FAQ sheet, so it is long... Scroll to the Folder or Folders that you NEED to familiarize yourself with.

As always, for your convenience, everything you need to know about EACH folder is INSIDE each folder!

:nod:


Issues We've Noticed Since Re-Opening:


1. We NOW have a separate folder for ANY NATURE work that might contain HUMANS, ARCHITECTURE, or TRANSPORTATION within the work, called: "Humans, Architecture, Transportation in NATURE" 
    
There are still quite a few Members submitting such works to "ALL 'SCAPES" or even "Domestic Mammals" where definitely no humans should be showing in "Domestic Mammals" [sometimes if it's a pet, a little bit of their home might be seen.]

Remember, the focus STILL MUST BE ON or ABOUT NATURE! :D

2. ALL of our Folders are about Nature, even our brand new ones! So whatever is submitted must be obviously about Nature.
If it is TOO abstract for our Admins., to determine that it is about Nature, and there is nothing about your Title, Category, or Artist Comments, to explain how the deviation speaks to Nature, we WILL ask! :nod:


3.  In ANY of our Folders, we do NOT accept ANY work that is about or contains:
BLOOD, GORE, or VIOLENCE.

And this is NOT a change. It has always been this way at this group.


PLEASE DO NOTE THIS INFORMATION!
It is difficult for me to continue to move work to the correct folder.

I will begin to remove work that doesn't belong in our NATURE Group, at all, soon, but I really don't want to have to do that.

Thank you for NOTING our Rules! It is so much appreciated, and will make all of the work at our Group, much easier!


:iconlovepinkplz:


:note: Affiliate NEWS, will come out again in our next Group News Article,
about Jan. 31st / Feb. 1st.

Thanks again to everyone for any and all of your various help and partipation! :love:
