Daily Deviation

Given 2012-03-16
New Folder Drop-Down by =GreenieGurl provides a simple solution for a problem that many admins of groups struggle with, and that can often even be a source of frustration for group moderators as well as members. The solution proposal is very well organised and presented.

This is a fantastic idea and one I really hope DA implements.  In my group, we frequently have to move submissions to the correct folder and you can't do it until you've accepted it - this would be a huge time saver.

I hate to be the nay-sayer, but I really think this would make things worse for the admins and group efficiency because this might make lazy submissions even more lazy because then members could get the mentality 'I can submit it wherever, the admin will fix it for me.' Which would cause more frustration for the group as a whole.

:iconashdayart:
AshDayArt Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
When this happens, and I know a member is being lazy, I just tell them that they need to resubmit things. If they have to do it again, they hopefully would take some care in choosing the folder. If members "pitch-a-fit", it is not required of them to submit their stuff to groups. Most groups have rules in place, and if people choose not to follow rules, then that is on them. This was for those new or quick members that happen to accidentally place it in the wrong folder and dont notice, or when admins feel that certain pieces would be better placed elsewhere.

This is just where I was coming from. Thanks for the input though. It is nice to see more than one side to things.

Only would happen if the group decided to take advantage of it ^^ Some groups might still have a policy of "if you don't submit to the right folder, then you'll get denied"

I can see this option easily being taken advantage of and abused by members, despite other policies in place.

Admin: I'm sorry, we can't accept this piece in this folder, please try again.
Member: Wha? why can't you use the drop down folder and transfer it?!
Admin: Because it's your job to submit it to the correct folder to begin with.
Member: But you have the drop down tool, so you can fix stuff like this.
Admin: We have policies in place to prevent stuff like this from happening to begin with. Just resubmit your submission to the right folder and it'll be on the group account.
Member: WTF? you're just being lazy. Two clicks of a mouse and it's done.

I can easily see this exchange going down in many, many groups if this were implemented. Just saying.

Sure. However, the member's argument is the EXACT SAME that I have had to give users in the past. When submitting a piece it's not like they have to go to a different folder for each piece. If they're submitting from the deviation, the drop down menu is RIGHT in front of them, and they have no right to be lazy. If they're submitting from the group gallery page, then they have all the folders right in front of them, and again, have no excuse for being lazy.

People have many invalid excuses for being lazy, no applicable ones though. There are no limits to how lazy people can be and they are quick to use any excuse to claim ignorance or difficulty to avoid following simple procedures. I have seen this and I do not wish there to be more of it.
