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!

There were two other wonderful members who had participated so greatly, by voting on our Monthly TOP SUBS...
but I couldn't feature them, because they've de-activated their accounts. :hmm:
I always feel sad about that, but... I truly hope they could know how much they were appreciated, in various ways!
:heart:


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

Due to personal reasons, and being very extra busy, for JUNE we had an ADMIN. Choice Month for our Top Submissions of JUNE 2012.

A couple or few times a year, we do it this way, which does help my work load a lot, 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 JUNE 2012, so that I could put that monthly article together.

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

:icondonatepointsgreenplz: Points for Our Group :icondonatepointsgreenplz:

First of all, Unframed-Nature can not thank enough our very generous Members, and Administrators alike, who have Donated and continue to Donate :points: Points to our Group! A few of them have done so, multiple times! :rose:

:iconrbheartplz:

But, it is especially the time of year again, to mention the finances! ;)
:iconmoneyplz:

The above Contest is our SECOND and LAST BIG CONTEST of the year.


Plus, we have had a few "Monthly Themes" which we've treated as "Mini-Contests" with a small amount of points, as prizes.
We probably will not have another one like this during the rest of this year... mainly because as far as points go, we don't have enough.

And we DO want to hopefully have a few points to begin the NEW YEAR, so we can do a few more "Monthly Themes"/"Mini-Contests".

The point is, our LAST BIG CONTEST of the year, in addition to renewing SuperGroup so soon after, is actually a bit over our heads, and so we are hoping for some further donations.

:fingerscrossed:


In the past, [even the days before SuperGroup] we have always had such HUGE donation of prizes, with PM’s and points, and massive features etc. ...

So we hope for this again! :nod:


Last year, we had a huge push to go SuperGroup, as wanted and expressed by the majority of the Membership, and so, near to the end of the year, the Members and Admins., came through with our SuperGroup status.
:love:

[SuperGroup has been a very helpful status, afterall, now I admit it.]

Therefore, this is the last big push of the year to ask if you might think about donating again to your Group of Unframed-Nature :heart:

The Widget is HERE:
:points: Unframed-Nature-PTS :iconunframed-nature-pts: :points:


Any and ALL Donations would be HIGHLY appreciated... and you will read there how you will be recognized and rewarded for your kind generosity!
