We broke 500 members!!! To commemorate this wonderful success as well as the resounding success of our first contest, I would like to thank the following.
In honor of those who made the contest what it was and those who have made this group what it has become...

Thank you to all the contest participants (you wrote beautifully) and contributors. :heart:

Thank you to our affiliates

Thanks to IrrevocableFate for interviewing us for her blog!

Thanks to :iconlove-literature: for interviewing us for their blog!

And last, but not least, thanks to all my co-founders, contributors and anyone who has featured and promoted us while we have been trying to get back on our feet.
Without you, this growth would not have been possible.
You have all been so wonderful!

And to all of you active members, thank you for contributing your wonderful work! We love and appreciate you, after all, we are here for you!

If I forgot anyone, I'm sorry. It was not intentional! If you point it out, I will add them here.

Look out for our latest prompt to be posted tomorrow.
And I know I still owe you a feature of works from December. I apologize for being SO late with that. I will get it up asap.

Happy writing, lovelies!

P.S. Because of our recent growth, I was thinking of changing the submission limit from 7 per week to 3 per week. Would you all hate me terribly for that? It's just that I don't want to spam the inboxes of our lovely members and watches. What say you?

A wonderful feature (ad i wonder why I saw it so late :hmm:)! Thank you all members for participating in the contest and all active members for making this group work! As both an Admin and member I would say that reducing the limit to 3 is fine. So that the notifications reaching our members have selected and leser works :nod:

Changing the submission limit is a good idea, it'll make people think about what they are uploading more and not just use the group as a dumping ground for their work. - Not that I am saying that the members of this group do this anyway, but I've seen it happen with other groups and it ruined the
community that had been built.
Congrats on reaching the 500 mark and thank you for letting me be one of those lucky people. :)
