Please consider creating new cards here:

Occasions >> Goodbye / Farewell >> Moving / New Home >> For Neighbor

Once your card is approved consider a similar submission for “Neighbour” (the spelling used in British English) being sure to add a Note to Reviewer like “based on approved pid#XXXXX”.
 
To expedite the review of these cards, please check Fast Track Review on the card image details page when you create your card and add a Note for Reviewers like “for BLOG– Wanted Cards”.

Nuts and Bolts: New Artist Enhancements

June 10, 2022

 

Nuts & Bolts – New Artist Enhancements
 

Many of our GCU artists have been around long enough to have heard about the infamous “wish list”.  Here are a few enhancements on that list that are now ready for artists to enjoy.
 
1. Category ID Fetch Field – speed entry by cid# vs search or click –
we will be sharing examples in a later post on how to best use this feature
 
2. Manage Cards Pagination (jump to page) – for improved navigation
 
3. Return After Edits – after editing a Returned for Edits card you should be returned back to that card to easily find the “resubmit” button vs returned to page 1.  Currently only working when the card is located by page number (not yet via any of the sidebar filters).
 
We hope these make your life as an artist on GCU easier and more productive. Please let me know if you notice any odd behaviours with these changes. 
 

The difference is made in the details!
