Hi, this is Chronophontes, a former co-founder of ProfanePoetry. A few weeks ago we lost our original founder, MysticHorns (Andréia, also known as Cat1975 and EveFromLove). I don't know what happened, but she left voluntarily, and was not banned. After some discussion, I've agreed to take over as founder.
This is the most successful, and therefore the largest, group of which I'm the founder. For good or bad, I'm a little lazy, and will not be actively sponsoring contests or searching out new members. (Though I expect that I will invite some people and request some work that seems appropriate.) So if you'd like to run a contest, do it! - as long as you're willing to do the work.
I don't plan any changes, except one little one: the "Sexy Digital Art" folder will become just plain "Digital Art" so we can submit some of our G-rated works as well as the sexy ones.
My own work tends more to the light, cheerful side than a lot of what is submitted, but joins and submissions will remain automatically approved, so if you prefer darker material than mine, that's fine. The only requirement is that you be civil when communicating either with the group or with individual members, admins, etc.
Well, there is one more requirement: no stolen work or anything else used without permission! Stolen items will be deleted and the submitter removed from the group.
Here's what Andréia said back at the inception of the group in 2011:
"The purpose of this group is to gather all kinds of art with a focus on spiritual freedom, mental creativity and profane eroticism...and of course, demonstrate the incomparable beauty of mother nature.
Here is a place of creative freedom and of respect the personal ideas...
This group will be allowed all kind of art; to digital and traditional art, art crafts, drawings, literature, photography, photomanipulation.
Unleash your imagination and find on your mind the meaning of word art.
Here is a free place...nonjudgmental!"
