Hey guys, it's me.. TheMercenary04. One of the co-founders. So I have read in the past weeks of why some your work hasn't been accepted, for starters is simple. One some of you submit it in the wrong folders or in my occasion sometimes I am unsure of the characters at times and whether or not change it of folder when I mistakenly accept it but that's not the bad thing as much.

It's the constant feeling my mood drops down a lot and sometimes I don't feel like doing certain things and such, I know I may sound like I am making excuses but be grateful you don't have anxiety's attack and your own mind is tormenting you that much.

The college for me is even taking my time away to even barely do my own work and hobby, when i have times I can surely check on the work and accept it but when things go bad I just accept some and delete the rest so I have my own time too.

So if any please just bare with me, I even feel guilty when I don't accept your art work but it's just those time my own brain just goes numb and want's to get things right out of the bat.

I recommend meditation for anxiety. One of my traumatized friends said it reduced hers significantly! Try some "positive affirmation" or "guided meditations" on YouTube. I hope you feel better!!

You're welcome! Just don't get the busy-ness of it all getcha down, haha ;w;
And oh wow, first of all I'm flattered you'd consider me for such a big position in a group like this. However, I do want to say that I don't think I'm necessarily the best person for the job? I only visit and check messages sporadically and definitely inconsistently, in addition to the fact that I don't have the internet to keep up with messages during the weekends. So, though I am honored, I think I'll have to decline. Thank you so much though, I'm sure that there's other people that you know and can trust that can fill the position much better than I could. Best of luck, Merc ;w;

Maybe you should hire some contributors to help you sort the art? I'd apply!

You should post a journal about hiring contributors! You could have questions like how active they are, how much experience they have and the like.

Buddy trust me, I know what it's like to have anxiety/panic attacks. (I also have bi-polar so I know all about depression) I have PTSD that can be triggered by incest. And I'm in this fandom. So, don't worry about it! At least you can enjoy the content the fandom makes! Hell, at least you can probably go through tags with out fear of panicking and vomiting. All the same I hope you feel better soon friend. :>

I'll try. I'm in therapy and have started having imaginary friends again to cope, because I have no irl friends and I'm usually home alone or the only one awake so I need a distraction. Can't think about how much I want to die when I focus on an imaginary skeleton patting my back and asking me about something. Thank you. :>

I highly recommend you watch these videos:

Tulpa formation is a perfectly valid coping mechanism, as long as it is doing you good, and I hope your therapist doesn't make you think otherwise!

Might not sound as comforting coming from a stranger, but I understand what it's like to live with anxiety.  Just know that some of us can empathize, and so I  understand that if the pressure's building up, things can get difficult.  Hope things get better soon.

those of us with brains appreciate your hard work between your life and college life. you should never feel guilty about not accepting artwork, especially if someone tries putting it in the wrong folder after you went through all the trouble to leave a guide for new people so that they'd know where to put things.

Dude i understand your situation, i got through that phase too some years ago, and i know it's bad, but i don't think it's good for the artits to wait that you're in the right mood for approove their art and then maybe find their stuff rejected, not because of thier fault, maybe you should just leave this work to someone else, for you sake and everyone's sake.

perhaps you should look into mods to help run the group? i know how it is when you're busy and having mental issues!

yes, if you made a post perhaps asking for more people to help sort through submissions, running the group might be easier?
