Group Refresh!Hello, everyone! MiloticScale here--a new Co-Founder of Pokemon-X-Y! I've got a bit of important news for everyone, so listen up please!Over the next week or so, Pokemon-X-Y will be undergoing a few changes. We will give our Gallery a makeover, do away with the Group Favourites (so all the art our group holds will be inside the Gallery), and refresh our Contributors class to bring in new, active deviants and let some of the inactive ones go.Gallery MakeoverWe are going to purge our current Gallery of all folders and create a whole new set of easily organizable folders. This will allow our admin team to quickly and efficiently vote on incoming artwork to include in our Gallery. The Group Favourites will be purged altogether, so if you currently have a piece of your art in our Favourites and not the Gallery, please re-submit it to the group's Gallery if you would like to keep it included here at Pokemon-X-Y.

Seniors Mentoring ProjectSenior WeekIntroductionAs part of Senior Week at projecteducate and dAseniors, I'd like to share a bit about the Seniors Mentoring Project (SMP for short). SMP is based at the seniormentors group on DeviantArt and aims to be a supportive path for deviants to get real mentor support from DeviantArt's Senior Members.Origin and PurposeThe group operates such that Mentor Volunteers (Senior Members who have elected to join the Mentor team) may reach out to deviants on a one-to-one basis and provide instruction, detailed feedback, and constructive criticism. The group was originally founded in 2007 by cei- and is currently under the supervision of LostKitten.SMP TodaySMP was recently revamped in the hopes that more Seniors would like to devote their time and knowledge to mentor other deviants as well as in the hopes that deviants would like to receive help and feedback from whom they believe are appropriate sources of this inf
