How I fixed my group request limit
At the end of August 2016, DeviantArt released a change to groups, limiting submissions in a group to 10 a day. This change also impacted the request limit for admins. And it was clear from the start that something was wrong. Some groups were able to request many artworks a day while others only 10 or even less. And there were also other issues: members submissions way higher than 10 a day, groups being hacked because their invites as admins were suddenly automatically approved, and maybe other issues that I don't know of. Since my own group was limited to a maximum of 10 requests a day, I decided, with the collaboration of the help desk, to investigate.
This article is an attempt to help groups with similar request issues as mine. I can't guarantee that what I've done with my group will work with yours. I cannot guarantee either that everyone of those steps are necessary. This is just what I've done and it fixed my problems somehow!

janhein's Profile Picture
Janhein Grimmelt
Since about 10 years I create digital art. More specifically I create digital collages, manipulating computer-generated fractal images and sometimes photos. I'm interested in the hidden realities behind our every-day-life-experiences. Fractals often seem to express or describe these realities.
I always have been fascinated by surrealism. Dali, Magritte, Willink, Hausner, Johfra, Beksinsky, Rabus, Resch and many other surrealists and magic-realists are sources of inspiration. More recently I've also been inspired by many digital artists here on DA. Tools of the trade: Mandelbulb 3D, Ultrafractal , Xenodream, Chaoscope, Apophysis and Photoshop.
