So you a girl and you think your a geek? Well does your art say so?

For membership to GG and artwork to be accepted in a gallery folder, your art must fit into one of the following catagories:

:bulletgreen: Animation
:bulletgreen: Cartoon
:bulletgreen: Comics
:bulletgreen: Fantasy
:bulletgreen: Films
:bulletgreen: Games
:bulletgreen: Manga
:bulletgreen: sci-fi
:bulletgreen: 3D
:bulletgreen: Concept Art (relating to one of the above)
:bulletgreen: Digital Art (relating to one of the above)
:bulletgreen: Own Characters (relating to one of the above)

:star: Artwork should also maintian the group quality standard

Geek-Girls do not accept the follow submisstions:-

:bulletred: work in progress (WIP's)
:bulletred: photography
:bulletred: photomanipulation
:bulletred: litrature
:bulletred: craftwork
:bulletred: art requiring restricted view

Along with these criteria, membership to the group is also judged on the strength of your gallery as a whole and not an individual piece of art. If the majority of your art does not meet the standard or genre we aim to promote, request for membership may be declined.
Hi All,

I decided to close the group as I haven't had the time I'd like to run it and take it to it's full potential as I would have liked. Things are only going to get busier for me as the year progresses so the journey ends here.

I started this group as a place to showcase the very best female artists contribute to the arts in geekdom. When I opened it, there were many groups for female subjects in art and none for female artist themselves and that was my reason I started this group. Maybe someday someone else will take up the mantel of championing female artists and I wish them the best of luck but I unfortunately I have to bow out.

Thanks for being a part of the group.

I just saw your decline on my membership request, and - without hard feelings - I'd like to comment upon a few things.

I was a little surprised not at least to find a comment as to why I was declined, and it took me quite a while reading through the community's journal as well as comments upon single posts to work out the reasons. I'd therefore like to suggest a clear statement of the group's submission and membership policies. Basically, from what I've understood (and that involved a lot of reading between the lines), you're not just looking for high-quality female artists who define themselves as geeks, you're also looking for certain pieces of art in their galleries, which I'd define as fanart (but I might be wrong there, as I said, it's not that clear from the group's description). Maybe it'd help if you could install a widget on the front page, or the group's "About Us" page, stating very clearly what you accept not just in art, but also in an artist, and that there is a sorting process in general.

As mentioned above, I'm not frustrated or angry about not having been accepted, but I think that these changes could on one point make things easier for aspiring new members (and save one or the other some disappointment), as well as reduce the heap of notes on your side.

Have a nice day/evening/night :star:

Don't feel bad. Almost all my submissions get declined without a single word as to why. I find it a bit rude actually, to decline membership and submissions without bothering to tell people why.

The same thing happened to me. I got declined with no explanation. It would be really nice to have a clear set of rules as to what the group is looking for in its members.

Hi Hisietari and thanks for your comment. It's always helpful to get feedback on the group to help improve standards and clarify issues. I've taken on board your comments and will put some of your suggestions into action.

I'm sorry you didn't make the group and I can't always offer feedback on why people are declined but I appreciate your sentiments nonetheless.

Many thanks.

Cheers! :)

It doesn't always happen that constructive suggestions get taken that well either. ;)
