Why nobody is accept submissions?
FatLittleSeal Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2015
Wow, your angry avatar makes your comment seem scarier than it should be :scared: 
In Free-Fans, our acceptance of submission works in the way that 2 admins need to agree to it before it gets through. 
I'm not sure what you have tried to submit, but it's most likely only 1 admin has agreed to it, and others haven't. 
I have quite a few admins in the group, but if none of them go online to accept it, I won't work. 

Your submission might have also broken one of the group rules or isn't up to a certain standard. 
If you are submitting traditional art, be sure to scan it properly so that no dark shadows can be seen. 

If you want to , you can re-submit your artwork, and link me to it,
and I'll see why it hasn't been accepted.
