are admins allowed to submit art to their own group?

Hey there.  I've just re-upgraded a group to a super group, and I'm trying to figure out how to create new member classes.  I've looked everywhere for information on how to do this, and I'm drawing a big blank.  I thought it might be quicker to ask a knowledgeable deviant rather than contacting the helpdesk (though I will if I have to).

I believe you should be able to do it through the
Admin Area >> Manage Members
section:
there's a pencil icon that appears when you select a moderator class so you can rename it.  Somewhere near there should be an option to add a moderator class, though I don't know the specifics since I don't have a group that I can test this on.  But, as you said, the help desk may be a better resource if you get stuck, though it'll likely take a few days for a response.

Yeah, I think I figured it out.  For some reason, I was thinking it was possible to add classes, but as I've looked around, I realized that you can only add the Moderator class and rename classes.  Thanks for the help! :D
