Hello, Windsonde peoples! As you have probably/definitely noticed, this group has been inactive for quite a while, so we are placing it on official hiatus. What does this mean?

:bulletblue: We are not currently accepting new members. Join requests will be closed until further notice.

:bulletblue: Existing members may continue to submit artwork, but please be aware that submissions can take time to process.

:bulletblue: All galleries will remain up, because the artwork in here is super neat.

Thank you all for making this group such a wonderful place. All of the mods have enjoyed drawing with you, talking with you, and making stories for this fantastic little world! May the Queens smile on all your future endeavors. :heart:

I was wondering, do you have an idea of when this group will be open again?
It seems like such a lovely group, I would love to try to join once it opens again. :)
Hey, I'm just curious as to how long it usually takes an application request to be processed and then either accepted or rejected?
