Deviants

Hello everyone !

The group is kinda the same since a couple of years, that's why we wanted to make some changes, that way we could renew the group in some ways :)

Gallery folders
The major changes will occur in the gallery.
First of all, the "Featured" folder is full, so we'll create a new one.
Then, I think some folders are too generic. For example, the "Games" folder : we could create folders for some popular games, like Mario and Zelda, and rename the "Games" folder into "Other games".
We could also create totally new folders that are missing to the group. For example, a "Commissions" folder, like suggested recently, or even a "3D" folder, "W.I.P.", and so on.

Appearance
We maybe want to change the appareance of the group too, that way it could be more appealing to new visitors.
We could maybe add or remove some widgets, that way we show the essential and simplify the page.

New members
We need your help on this : when you see a deviation that is not yet in the group, you could maybe click on "Add to a Group" and chose this group, on the page of the deviation, that way we could extend the Perler-Beads family :)

Spotlight on you and your work
We have in mind a project : we will create a journal where we will do critiques of some of your works, that way we will put the spotlight on you and your work, and we will also give some constructive advices for you to improve and progress in the beads world !

Your opinion
We want to know what you think about the group, and how you see the group in the future.

So, what folders should we create ?
What changes could be made on the page ? What widgets should be removed or added ?
What do you think about the project of critiques ?
What other things should we change ? What could be improved ?
How is your experience in the group ?

Thanks for your help :D

Yeah, the easiest way to do that is to convert your image into pixels. There are also :
mypixelpal.com/
sites.google.com/site/degenatr…
beadforge.com/
dolkow.se/perler/
www.zed-ex.com/BeadSurge.aspx

So you have plenty of choices ^^

Would it be possible to add a Commissions folder for those who want to sell Perler creations?

I don't have the rights to create a new folder =/
So, if the founder or co-founders see this message, they'll consider doing so :)

Okay ^_^

I hope they are still active. Most clubs I'm in have  founders with dead accounts.

Yeah =/. I think one co-founder is still active, well I hope.
I asked to be co-founder a few weeks ago, that way I could create new folders, but I didn't receive a response =/

I was just wondering (also cuz im a noob :P)

I heard of both perler and hama beads and I want to know the difference. I was searching around and perler came up first for me when i searched up either of them. Is hama an international brand? Btw I live in the US, maybe thats why perler came up.
Its actually cheaper in US to buy perler considering the shipping costs for hama, atleast according to my search on amazon. So i was wondering if there is a quality difference?

Hama beads are widely available in the UK, while Perler is more in the US. They melt slightly differently as well.

Here's an image of the different brands and how they melt 3.bp.blogspot.com/-J9LVi3wF1Ew…

I think the cheapest way to buy either brand is online, I know lots of artists buy them in bulk here www.bakerskidscrafts.com/ you can get any brand for similar prices.

I uploaded a few to movies, I wasn't for sure if they were considered movies or cartoons (they're kind of both ^_^) I hope it's ok! Is there a limit to adding? I didn't want to spam or anything.

Hi ! Actually, there's a limit to adding since a week, because someone submitted 200+ submissions in one shot. The limit is 10 submissions per day. I would have put a limit of 20 per day, but deviantART doesn't allow us to do so :(
I think that the folder "Cartoons" is more for cartoon TV shows, and the folder "Movies" is for all the movies (cartoon or not), so you submitted your work in the right folder :D

Oh, don't worry about spamming. We greatly appreciate artwork as long as they are sorted correctly, which in this case they are. Go on with your funky self and thank you for sharing your amazing stuff!! :hug:

Hi guys. Thanks for adding me to the group. Since I use Hama beads instead of Perler (you can't really get that brand of beads here in Denmark), I hope I'm allowed to stay >w>;
Also, I don't see many (any?) people sowing the beads? It's a slightly different, but very nice way to work with beads as well ^^
