How do you add a tagline to an already created group? Is it possible? ^^; (sorry if I missed something)

Go to group >> 2nd tab from the left "Group Info" >> Pencil Icon >> Group Tag Line

Outstanding Information ! Being made a 'Founder' of a group which already is a 'Super Group', is there a way to ask members for donations to the group to keep the group as a 'Super group' on the front page ?

Thank you

The staff tried to set that up, but there are legal issues with more than one person accessing an account online where the funds become taxable.  Currently the only way to collect points is to ask users to donate to your home account or to a separate user account set up specifically to collect donations for your group.  Groups themselves cannot receive points.

are admins allowed to submit art to their own group?
parallellogic Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2014
Yes, and by default submissions from admins are automatically approved

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).
