First off I'd like to welcome you to DAFencing. We really appreciate you taking the time to view our page and give much deserved credit to the talented artists who submit their work.
Our goal: The main reason behind this group's creation is to make fencing more known and popular on the online stage. The other being to, in a way, replace the other fencing group here on DA. Fencing-Club(the other group) is a fairly nice group with 30+ members, many of whom are now part of this group as well. Their problems are the facts that their only administrator hasn't logged on in one month short of a full year and they have never hosted contest, or expanded to a substantial group. We hope not to follow in their shortcomings.
Plans:Our first contest(let me know if you have any ideas, I'll take them in to account) will come soon, I threw out 45 members as a goal, though it may come sooner(I'll keep recruiting but may get impatient and hold it early).
Joining/Submissions/Rules/Admins: -All join requests are automatically accepted -All and any fencing related art will be accepted as long as it doesn't inappropriately portray the sport, or make offensive shots at an individual or group -Submissions will be reviewed before their addition to the gallery -You may not make derogatory comments towards another member/watcher of the group -You may not inappropriately portray the sport to any deviant, member or not -You may not misrepresent the group to any deviant, member or not -More admins will be needed as the group expands, I will let you know when they are and I will begin promoting qualified interested parties
The following quote is from I really support them, and this message fits perfectly with what we want to do with this group. "One of the problems I have seen going on is people getting greedy with the views. They create groups for the soul purpose to get more popularity. This group is different. It's about YOU guys. Getting a few more views to you. A few more friends. A few more faves to YOU and not someone who treats a page view like a dollar... grabbing every one he possibly can."(I took out some of it to focus on the groups aspect of it. you can read the rest on their page)
-Thank you, I hope you enjoy the group and take advantages of all it has to offer!
