Pay It Forward Admin
Responsible for scouring dA galleries to find deviations with very few comments and favourites (less than 10, approximately) that deserve greater recognition. This can either be exceptionally written work that is just not getting noticed, or work that shows the potential to be exceptional with a little constructive feedback. Essentially, these people are going to be talent spotters. The execution may not be perfect, but that's what critiques are for, and that's what we're about here.
Add deviations to the Pay It Forward folder, as well as providing the initial critique on the deviation (with group icon including in critique).
Monitor deviations in PIF folder to ensure group members are following guidelines (All members are required to critique at least 1 deviation in the 'Pay It Forward' folder per month.) See Rules for more info.
Create a monthly journal/article feature for that month's PIF submissions, with brief descriptions on the deviations featured.

Responsible for providing critiques for all deviations in the 'Critique Me' folder.
Monitoring and maintaining the 'Critique Me' folder; ensuring that members follow guidelines outlined in Rules. (For every deviation you submit to this folder, you must provide 1 critique for another member; you may only submit one deviation to this folder per month.)
Monitor 'Featured' folder to ensure each member is providing the required 3 critiques/month.
Positions Filled: 0 of 4
NB It is not necessary to have a premium membership for the positions that require a critique. It's just as easy to post a critique through a comment as through dA's critique system (though do try to stick to the same guidelines).
