Hello dear members of #Stamp-Heaven,
This is =WishmasterAlchemist speaking to let you know that the group is not dead and that we are now able to get it going again.
The main reason for all the inactivity was that both our ex-founder ~yumi-honamaru and co-founders haven't visited dA in ages and have left the group unattended. However, I was able to discuss the matter with the Help Desk and to obtain the position of Founder, so now the group can be revived!
But first, let me introduce myself as the new Founder of #Stamp-Heaven: I've been a deviant for 6 years, actively made stamps for 5, and have been an admin here since November 9, 2010. I started as a Contributor, was later promoted to Moderator and am now honoured to talk to you all as the new Founder in the hope to make this group as big and active as it used to be.
And our new Co-founder =HarmonicSonic also deserves some warm words of praise and encouragement for staying active with me when no one else seemed to be around here anymore!
• On Expired Submissions:
We apologize for all the submissions that have expired recently because of lack of votes. We promise that incoming submissions are now going to be voted on more efficiently, so if your submissions have expired, please resubmit them, and we will make sure to review them as soon as possible.
• New Contributors needed:
In addition to that, there seem to be only a few of the existing admins that are still active enough to keep up with submissions and other tasks, so I'm calling for new Contributors!
What is expected of you is that you know the group's rules and actively take part in the submission voting process accordingly.
Being a Contributor doesn't just mean that you'll be able to submit more stamps and have them approved faster, so please apply for the position only if you seriously want to help the group. You can do that simply by leaving a comment here. Any additional information about you, like previous experiences you've had in other groups, isn't necessary but still most welcome!
• Super Group Status:
As you may or may not remember, #Stamp-Heaven used to be a Super Group. Unfortunately, our Super status has expired and currently none of the admins can afford to purchase an upgrade.
For this reason, =HarmonicSonic has opened a donation pool on his profile. If you care about #Stamp-Heaven and have some spare points to share, please take the time to visit =HarmonicSonic's pool. All donations, even the smallest, mean a lot to us and will be greatly appreciated!
I'm also aware that there are a number of things that need to be updated and worked on, so please be patient for a little longer while we fix everything up.
Thank you for staying with us and for your patience!
