As you may have noticed in your notifications today, Marrilanders
is back up and running! I know, it's been Nearly a year (or maybe that's a Nearly
), and I do apologize for that. I'd like to try ensure that, even if I'm not able to comment or contribute, the community can still share and discover all of the lovely fanart (and other fan-creations) from the Marriland video series!
First of all, I'm glad to say that I've upgraded Marrilanders
to a SUPER GROUP
, so it has a nice, shiny Bro Badge now to indicate how awesome it is.
It should also help do some cool things for it down the line!
Second, I've added folders for the Black 2 Wedlocke
, the Y Wonderwedlocke
and the Omega Ruby Wedlocke
. You can now submit your Marriland artwork directly there! Two episodes in and there's already quite a few pieces of fanart for that series that have been drawn, so I wanted to make sure that you'd have a great place to post it so other Marriland fans can see it as well!
Third, as I said, you may have noticed a LOT of submissions added to the gallery today! I went back and
'd and added to the group all of the relevant art that I could find that included the word "Marriland" (that's how I find all of the lovely fanart!
). Unfortunately leaving comments on hundreds of pieces of fanart would have meant I'd be working on this for a week, so I do apologize for the lack of comments I left, but I do want you to know that I loved each and every piece of lovely fanart!
If you did NOT have your fanart
'd or did NOT have a request to add it to the gallery, please let me know in the comments with a link, because sometimes some can slip under the rug, particularly if they don't include the word Marriland anywhere in the title, description, or tags (btw #marriland
is a great tag to use
). I'll be glad to add it as long as it follows the rules!
Last, but not least, in order to keep from that whole "my art is never accepted because Marriland is always inactive" problem (hey, I'm admitting it!), I'd like to appoint a few Benchleaders
to the group. Benchleaders are effectively trusted community members who have a good feel for deviantART, have some experience handling deviantART groups, and will be responsible for accepting/denying art to the gallery here. It's not a difficult role, and I'm sure there are a lot of people who would love to help! Experience is a huge help to becoming a Benchleader along with how prominent you are in the Marrilanders community; if I've seen plenty of your fanart as well as comments on other members' fanart, and if you have a good knowledge of how groups go, you're definitely Benchleader material.
Just let me know in the comments or via Note if that's something you'd be interested in along with what qualifications you have (experience with groups, dA, etc.).
Cheers! And hope y'all enjoy the Omega Ruby Wedlocke!
