Every so often I get a spate of correspondence notices -- often a few dozen at a time -- requesting to add some of my images (usually the wallpapers) to the gallery of groups I don't belong to. Overall, that's a pretty cool thing. It's flattering. I certainly have no objection, per se, to showing my work in appropriate groups and having more people see it.
But... could we make sure the group is appropriate, please?
I get a lot of requests that frankly don't make any sense. A SHIELD wallpaper may receive requests to have it added to an Agents of SHIELD fangroup and a Marvel fangroup, which are perfectly appropriate, but will at the same time will have requests for a Power Rangers group, Japanese animation groups, 90s cartoon groups, and so forth, even though it hasn't a thing to do with any of these. Since it usually all happens at once, I assume it's the same person or people making the requests, and that they probably follow me.
I mean, hey, I appreciate the thought. I'm glad you like my stuff. But... I don't spam groups with my work, and I don't want other people spamming them on my behalf.
When I follow a group, it's because I want to see stuff that's appropriate within that group. If I follow a ThunderCats fanart group, I don't expect to see portraits of Paul Simon showing up. I figure other people are the same way, so I don't submit to groups that aren't appropriate for the thing I'm submitting, and if I receive a request that looks like a mismatch, I decline it. It's the respectful thing to do for other folks. So I'd really appreciate it if any group requests I get make a modicum of sense. An unexpected correspondence notice icon should be a pleasant surprise, not a warning that I'm going to be clicking "No" two dozen times.
(First world problems, I know. But I'm grumpy about life stuff in general right now, and I might as well say a word about something I might be able to influence a little.)
