If I get backlogged and get hundreds of deviations for each group, I just delete the stack. If I can check my dA daily I only get a few dozen so I can check some of them :)

I like them. I am in some of them, but only as many as I can actually keep track of the deviations meaning I can still look through all of them.

I think it is a really great system and I also feel that through groups it is easier to connect to people and actually get to talk to some of them.

Can you say.. Biased Poll?

Where are the options for people who like the system???

I love it! My groups are more active and lively than ever and I have seen a TON of amazing art!

I am member of only one Group and I'm a contributor in another and that is just the perfect amount to keep track of the artworks coming in. :nod:

As a contributor I am surprised how practical it has become and it is more of a joint and collaborative effort than regular clubs. It's not perfect, but so far I think that there are more upsides to working in a Group.

I used to work in several clubs before the Groups system and it was a hell of a lot more work having to submit each and every submission that needed to be handled just as you submit a deviation in your own gallery, you know. So Groups are definitely a HUGE time save and so much more effective.

As for the member aspect of it, it is much easier to submit artworks now too.

It is indeed more proficient as far as organizing and administrating is concerned, as opposed to the old clubs :nod:

Definitely. That is why #Photo-manipulation didn't work for me. No proper organization.

Its the best thing that happened to dA since collections =D

really its a great way to sift through all the new artworks around dA without leaving my message center...and you can now feature your work and get real feedback, comments, favs...back at the old club system i bet hundreds faved ur work in the clubs galleries and not the original deviation :P

PLUS...its an awesome way to get more exposure :nod:
