I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is J Krolak and I will be taking over the group as co-founder while oO-Monkey-Oo goes a pillaging of the decadent kingdoms to the South. For those who do not follow my personal page here on DA or have not encountered me at the World of Catgirls, Catwoman, and Sexy Fairies, I am a LONG time fan of over 30 years activity in Science Fiction, Fantasy, Movies, Comics, Anime, and Costume Photography (these days you call it Cosplay Photography). You might say I've been around. I was there when Red Sonja first donned her chain mail bikini for adventures chronicled at Marvel Comics. And "my google-fu is strong. Subject to artist consent, you can more or less count on new pictures to be arriving on a regular basis.
I do have a few orders of business to take care of first.
I want to start by thanking oO-Monkey-Oo for founding this group and running it these past several years. Group administration can be a trying job at the best of times and giving up "your group" for a stranger to run can be even more difficult. While busy pillaging the South, he's staying on and will be checking in from time to time. When you have a moment, please send him your thanks.
Last year also saw me experience some major health issues. While I was offline for a shorter period that I had any reason to expect, it did drive home the point about having a reliable backup staff in place. I will continue to review offers from anyone who wants to apply for a role as administrator. The duties should be pretty light. Basically search out new pictures, help approve any submitted pictures, and fill in for me should I need to take leave for a prolonged period. I don't expect to be gone much, but then again I didn't expect that health problem either. I ask that those interested be out of school (studies come first) and show that they can dedicate the (hopefully) minimal time necessary for their duties.
While I have a few dozen pictures awaiting artist approval, I can always use more. That is where you come in. I have opened gallery up for submissions. I figure that a few hundred of you can easily find pictures that are worthy of inclusion faster than I can alone (and I am running 4 other groups and have a personal life too). I just ask that you please use the most appropriate category for your submissions. I will gladly add more if necessary.
So again, welcome to the new Red Sonja Fan group/
