Sorry that I been too lazy to write this, but as you may have already heard from danlev
, at this time, you as a administrator, co-founder, contributor or member can only submit up to 10 submissions per day, per week or per month.
The limit was implemented on the 29th of last month as older limits were removed. Previous higher limits of 100 or 1,000 caused a lot of technical server and spam issues.
There were numerous groups, even bot-run groups that were deliberately abusing the system with a very high number of submissions in a short period of time. I honestly suspect that groups that were ran by bots got shut down as a result of this TOS violation.
Also, to avoid confusion here, currently, the number of group submissions that a user (not group) can submit is up to 10 per day. And I also got word that you can only submit up to 10 folders in a single group, in regards to this limitation, I'm a bit confused here.
It would be best for the deviantART staff to write a FAQ on how many submissions that you can add in a group, per day, per week or per month to ease the confusion of running a group that you administer.
In any event that you are unable to submit more than 10 deviations per day in a group that you operate, there workarounds
: Workaround #11.
Go to your Message Notification Centre and create a custom folder.2.
If you have any submissions that have entered the group and appear in your message centre, because you're watching a member who is a part of the group and you as a administrator can't submit it or one of the members of the group can't submit their works in their group, due to the limit being reached - simply drag it into the custom folder. I recommend that you set a name for your custom folder so that you'll know where the submission will be submitted to.3.
Once you drag the submission that is waiting to be submitted into the group, I recommend that you wait until the next day. On the next day, either you as an administrator or a co-founder, contributor or member can submit the deviation into the group. The submitted deviation that appears in one of the group folders will appear in the message centre. You can safely remove the submission from the custom folder.

You can create a temporary collection add the unsubmitted works to your group there. This is the case if a member is a part of the group, but you aren't watching the said member.
First of all, you need to add a deviation that is waiting to be submitted to one of the group folders to your favourites and click on the "New Collection" button near the top of the page.2.
On the "Add to Favourites" button, located at the top-right of the deviantART screen, click where to add the submission to the temporary collection.
More information can be found here: FAQ #6: What is the Collections Feature and how do I use it?
Until there are changes to the group submission limits in the near future, be careful on what you can submit to your groups!
If you have any questions or are confused about my workarounds that I'm not making this clear enough, let me know and I'll update this journal entry.
PS: I just had to write this journal as it has almost been a month since the sign-up phase of the Secret Santa 2016 event kicked off. With 67 participants
signing up for the event so far, it's possible that the :idevSecret-Santa-Network: could attempt to dominate other Secret Santa-themed groups and events going into week 5!
