first off, apologies for the long bout if inactivity. Things have been going on in my life. I'm currently sifting through the submissions, so do not be surprised if this group suddenly exploderates your feed.
That said, I've finally made a decision on how to deal with reformed changelings (from here on out referred to as "changed-lings"). Overall, the reaction seems to have been neutral, with a select few strongly negative reactions and few to no strongly positive reactions. Personally, I made this group to promote cute changeling art, and to me, the new design definitely doesn't represent what I liked in changelings. I don't mind the new design, but don't want to actively seek them out. So here's my policy regarding them going forward:
There will NOT be a seperate folder for changed-lings.
Similar to ponies and other creatures, changed-lings alongside regular changelings are fair game.
We will NOT accept most changed-ling only submissions. I might make exceptions for exceptionally well-executed or tremendously cute art. Overall, I'm going to try to keep the ratio between changelings and changed-lings at 10:1 or higher, though.
These rules aren't sent in stone, and if they prove to be very unpopular, I might reconsider. However, for now, this is how we will handle things. Please let me know your thoughts.
