Please, submit to the "Featured" folder, if you want your deviation in it.
If you submit a deviation in some random folder of the group's gallery, before submitting it in the Featured gallery, you can't resubmit the same work to featured. DA won't let me accept your request.
I can't move all the deviations in Featured by myself. There are too many.
This may be the main reason in declining your Featured requests. In fact, I always accept them.
So far, the group is doing very well and this is the part where I should thank you. Especially for submitting in the proper folder. This is the main problem concerning the unlimited groups.
If I notice other problems, I will write a new journal. Stay happy!
