Our ACTIVE members or the ones that are still visiting CR know how it is the situation, so we don't need to make a notice that almost all the groups are dead. It's just common sense if you spend a little time here.
NO, I don't think I have any responsability to inform anyone. And maybe you should check the site more often, cause Aya wrote that all the previous requests were done or cancelled since the mods weren't so active.
As group creator don't you think it's your responsibility to inform everyone ahead of time when the group is dead? And, when you think the group will be active once again cause i didn't know that till now.
First of all you made a double request, so you broke the rules. Second, you only requested an avatar 20 hours ago and third, probably your request will not be finished too soon since most of the graphic groups are "dead" and so are we.
