Hey guys! Its been a bit - sorry about that. There are a few things I'd like to discuss with everyone, and I'd love your input on improving the group and its functionality for all!

Many of you who were previously 'contributors' will notice you've been moved to 'members.'
Anyone is welcome to note a request to me or the group asking to become a contributor. Contributors need to complete at least 2 critiques per month, or contribute a prize for a forthcoming contest, to maintain contributor status.
For those who feel a bit unsure about giving critiques, once you have access to the admin panel there are discussions about the topic you can read and a simple outline for somewhere to start when writing a critique. I also highly recommend checking out this journal: fav.me/d7nlkmk
I could really use some help getting through a lot of the requested critiques, so please let me know if you'd be interested in becoming a Contributor for the group!

*EDIT* If you have more than 2 submissions in the folder "Art to be Critiqued" please reply here letting us know if you would be OK with us removing the excess oldest submissions. Alternatively you can list which two works you would like to remain for critique and which extras can be removed. This is an effort to allow critiques on your more recent and relevant works, as I am sure those with multiple submissions waiting for critique have improved a fair bit since those older submissions were made. No reply to this journal will be interpreted as an 'OK' from you to remove your older works.

With summer right around the corner, I'd love to host another contest! But I'd like this one to be bigger and better than our first three contests. I will of course donate points and/or Core to the prizes, but if you would be willing to donate art, features, points, Core, or other prizes to make this a more enticing contest to enter, please send me or the group a note! We are also taking suggestions for a theme for the contest. Would you like to see another Set Stock challenge (requiring at least one provided stock image be included in the manip), an open 'summer' theme, or something completely new and different? Let us know in the comments!

Lastly if you have any other ideas or input outside of these topics about how to make the group better, feel free to comment here or send me a note. ^_^

Hi :)
First, thanks for inviting. Second, I have a question: You didn't state anywhere if you're a group only about wolver or about any canine species (because this group's name is "CANIpulate"). I have a few manips that have other canine species on them, jackals, foxes, coyotes, etc. so I was wondering – would they fit into the group, too? Or is it just for wolf art?

Any canine art will be accepted! Thanks so much for pointing this out, we will be sure to clarify that on the main page of the group. :D
