:bulletred: Poetry only.
:bulletblack: One deviation per folder per week.
:bulletred: With the exception of To-be-Critiqued which is just one per month.

:bulletblack: Please, oh please, put your things in the right place. The folders have a description if you are unsure.
:bulletred: Be civil. This is a rule, not a guideline. If it is brought to my attention that someone is being mean or inappropriate, I will not hesitate to remove you from this group.

It is simply as simple as that.

Don't do it.
If you've done it before, stop it.
If you're thinking about doing it, don't.

After doing a bit of digging in the admin area I've found what these submissions are.
Apparently submissions to the folder labeled Featured is disabled, but groups allow people to -suggest- things to feature, placing them in the Favorites section of the group.

There seems to be little that can be done to prevent this save everyone making sure they do not attempting to suggest their work be featured.

I apologize for my own misunderstanding and the tone of the original post.
I also hope to find ways to be a bit more active as an admin.
Feel free to make suggestions in the comments.

Small question! Why was my work declined? Was it not put in the right folder or it simply didn't catch your interest? Simply curious so I may take a future not in it that's all!

99% of all rejected poems were submitted to our featured folder, which we've told group members multiple times is not the correct folder.  Not saying you intended to submit incorrectly or did anything wrong. :)  It's just gotten to the point where we decided to just reject all poems submitted that way rather than write people every day explaining why.  If you think there was another reason, let me know.  Either way, I'll be happy to help you out! -Sean
Ah okay..I see! Well if I accidentally attempted to submit it into the "Featured" folder, (my fingers tend to slip up so...), ans sometimes I'm either not sure of where to submit it or realize too late it was in the wrong folder then I apologize! Just glad you clarified the reason if anything.~

It's cool, no worries, and thanks for understanding. Ideally the other mod(s) and I would be able to message people each time and ask them to resubmit, but it's just much easier to reject and hope people realize what they did.  No worries from me either way! =)

I don't understand.  We don't submit our own poems/work? Whose work do we submit?
angelenroute Apr 1, 2014  Professional Writer
You do submit your own poetry.  Are you referring to the featured folder?  If so, we don't want anyone submitting to that, as no one should just ask a group to feature their poems.  If we choose to feature a poem, that's fine, but when so many people submit to featured (as people continue to try to do anyway) we have to stop it.  Hope this makes sense.

Thanks for taking the time to help clear things up.  I'm new to DA and in my learning curve.  I did upload one of my poems (The Lost Letters) to my gallery.  If I understand you, you are saying I can also upload it to We-Poets.  I'm going over there now and check it out.  Thanks again:)

Yes, all poems are accepted as long as they're not prose (hence, not a poem but a short story, etc.) and not offensive in some out there way. =) 

99% of the ones that get rejected are because they were submitted to our featured folder (often the default selection when you select our group's destination, so click that box when you publish a new poem and search for a folder that makes sense).  Feel free to ask any questions anytime!

Sean =)
