~~~ HOW TO VOTE
Most Months, we hold a WHOLE GROUP Membership Voting, and we Welcome our AWESOME MEMBERS/[plus ADMIN.!!]
to VOTE on what each feel are the TOP Submissions from the Month, out of our Folders!
We believe this is the Group's Group. HOWEVER, this is the FIRST time this year, that we will be needing to have an ADMIN.-ONLY vote.
My fellow-Admins., have already been given this info., with links, instructions, and dates, and they will do great,
as they always do, when they've carried the votes themselves in the past!
I want to thank you ALL for understanding...
and especially express my deepest gratitude to all of our amazingly dedicated Members who
vote every month, or at least nearly every month!
And I want to thanks any of you newer members who JUST began to vote in this monthly event for your first times. PLEEEEEASE, come back again during the first week of August, to VOTE ON JULY!
Look for the voting journal to come out on AUGUST first!

:iconcuteheartzblue: Welcome to Unframed-Nature's Special Edition Article, Vol. 1 :iconcuteheartzblue:
:iconlovethesunshineplz: MAIN PURPOSE :iconlovethesunshineplz:
In Addition to our FIVE original folders that we've had since the beginning of 2012,
and the News Folder that we added in the middle of 2012,
we added FIVE Special Folders to our Group, at the beginning of 2013.
WHY DID WE DO THIS?
The main reason we did this, was to bring a deeper meaning to our Group, as far as our love and concerns for Nature.
With special news articles after every three months, which will reflect the work submitted to these folders, we are able to help share and spread awareness about particular issues that have an impact on Nature, which we would likely care about given the original idea for this group, to begin with. If you joined this group it is because you love and care about Nature,
Next one due in JULY!
It will be later in July than I would prefer, and somehow juggled with our
"Top Subs Subs of June.... " but it'll just get figure out, somehow!
Anyway, so, please tell others about these special folders, so that more Group Members and Potential Members,
will have the benefit of submitting to them! Extra Special Loveliness!

For those of you not familiar with this series, each month we'll be delving into a group that is dedicated to their members and giving back to the dA Community through exposure, hosting regular events and just being an all around awesome place for deviants to settle in and feel welcome.
In a couple sentences, can you please describe what your group is about?
Our group at Unframed-Nature has always mainly focused on Nature, especially the beauty of Nature. However, over time, we have come to develop our group to also reflect many of the realities of Nature, and our concerns for Earth in general, such as the issues regarding what is not healthy about our environment, and the perils that many wild and domestic animals face. The intent of this developme
This was truly one amazing honour and opportunity for our group, when we were approached via group notes.
I think overall the article/interview turned out wonderfully...I am not sure why the title says, "Photography" - we have asked, though.
Also none of the random selections of 'Scapes I gave him are reflected...
BUT, other than THESE,
IT IS VERY NICELY DONE,
and an honour to be asked here at:

Please read the following application, answer the questions inside, and then NOTE your answers to me,
Administrator Application for Unframed-NatureUnframed-Nature's Application for Administrative Position
Accepting Applications for Administrator Positions at Unframed-Nature is now: OPEN!
Before you apply, please know that volunteering for a large and active group here on dA, such as Unframed-Nature is a real and true commitment, which will take up some of your time on at least a weekly basis, maybe more.
Unframed-Nature is special in many ways, but from an Administrative view point, it is very special because we have always had good luck with our current Administrators, most of which have been with the Group, as Administrators, for a very long time.
We are a very friendly Team, both with each other, and with the Members, as well. This means when we do have to decline works, we do give a reason, and we are friendly about it. It means, that upon occasion if there is something that we disagree about within the Admin. Team, we disagree nic
It's really NOT
as formal as it looks. We just want to get to know our future volunteer team members, better!
We are a really great team to work with, too. Affiliate Groups’ News & CONTESTS
As you know, we love and adore our affiliates, and there are even quite a few that we promote, help, support, and feature on an ongoing basis...
however, due to lack of time, and other issues, I hope you'll understand that THIS time, we will not have a full section of Affiliate info.
Feel free to check out the Affiliate section under our previous recent news article, or even my recent profile journal. BUT PLEASE NOTE, that we will CONTINUE to do our BESTS to at least PROMOTE any Affiliate Contests on our Profile Page, down the left-hand side if you NOTE THE GROUP!
