15th of December, 2009

As Christmas and the Holiday Season is almost upon this will be the last newsletter of 2009!

PiMT will be going into a three week hiatus as I am going away on holidays and my internet access will be limited.
This being the case I will open up the group to accept work without moderation.

I trust all you wonderful members will not use the opportunity to add more than two works per day and work which does not fit the group.

Hi all you lovely group members;

We hosts at PiMT like to think that this group is pretty special. What is it that makes this group so great!
Well it’s not the hosts, we simply facilitate the activities and support our members.
It’s you! The members of PiMT.
Nothing more clearly demonstrates this than the recent call for critique by
Fee Dickson
in her forum
Help with this painting, please..

It is so fantastic to see the activity that she had generated and the support she has received!


It is nice to know that sometimes this community can facilate some really wonderful things.

We have had a few changes recently to PiMT, which I trust, will be for the better.

We have changed the format of our guidelines so they are more about what we can do for you.

We have also changed our upload limit to 20 and increased the gallery of images to 5000. With, now, well over 1800 members we hope this will accommodate you better.
Please remember to limit your uploads to two per day giving everyone a chance to showcase their work fairly.

Hi everyone there are two important things that have developed since the last newsletter.

The first is the current group challenge that is taking place at the moment. Groups that succeed in winning one of the many categories will receive redbubble vouchers which the group can use as prizes in future challenges.

For this reason I am calling on all members to enter the challenge and vote for everything when voting time comes!
We have over 1100 members in the group and I am hoping to get at least 20% of the group participating. So far we have just under 10%.

All you have to do is enter your favourite piece.

As Redbubble has changed the way group bubblemails are viewed, ie. as ‘Group News’ rather than a bmail that lands in your inbox, I will be sending out the newsletter via this option once again.
If you have opted in for receiving the newsletter bmailed to you you can unsubscribe by editing your post to say opt out. (If you have trouble with this mail me and I will fix it for you.) However if you would like to keep receiving them you just do nothing.
Would you like your newsletter bubblemailed to you?

I am keeping this option open because group news tends to disappear very quickly, especially if you are a member of many groups.
