I wrote this message, this morning in the PhotoArtists group.
I have mixed feelings about it because it was 4 years of dedication.
Still, so many things are happening in life that I simply cannot keep coming to dA just to vote on submissions.
That is not what I want.
Thank you all for the support.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++The admins were debating and we have reached the conclusion that PhotoArtists is not what it used to be anymore.We started with a clear path and ideas. For a long time we did features, we talked to the members and we were proud to maintain a great amount of quality and people in the group.As time flew by we had admins turning inactive, leaving, deciding that the voting in photos was no longer for them. Some of us stood still but eventually "real life" caught us up.The love we felt for PhotoArtists started to fade. No more features, no more talking a lot to the members. This was definitely not the purpose of the group.In the end we decided it was time to retire. PhotoArtists will be closed and we are going to pursue other things.We will still be around on dA so if you want to keep in touch, it will be our pleasure.Thank you so much for all the support you gave us during these past 4 years. It was a pleasure and an honor to receive such amazing works from you.Wishing you all the bestPhotoArtists Team
