Random from Favourites

The Favourites gallery are for deviations favoured by members or members of affiliates, that are NOT already in the group's gallery folders -- that means the group's avvy is not shown on the deviation. These may then be used as basis for inviting to gallery.

Really, this should not be used for self-promotion.

The Featured folder is for items proposed by admin only -- they will, in the main, be deviations that will be unlikely to be submitted to the group's gallery proper as the deviants have not been into dA for half a year or more.
