Bailing on this Site? by TristanAlexander

So, it seems that most of the good artists I was happy to see here are bailing on this site! Giving up and not posting anymore! I hear it is being slow and no one is posting...and that is from peopel who are NOT posting here anymore! If you donlt POST it will not get better!! I like the way this site looks and works so far, I realy hope the good artists stop playing in FA and start actually USEING this site!!

    I hope so too. I just got here. The only reason I'm still on FA is for the people who aren't on Weasyl yet.

    Yeah, it's a really unhealthy snowball effect; a well-known artist stops posting because the site is "quiet," then their watchers stop posting, etc. That was one failing of Nabyn, although Nabyn had the added problem of MIA admins; at least this site has active mods. People just need to stick with it for the long haul and contribute instead of abandoning it simply because it's a new (ish) site and isn't "active." It takes a while for a site like this to establish a thriving community, but that can't come to be if people jump ship only a couple months in.

    That's a good attitude. Hopefully other people adopt it :3

    I agree with you, I use this site because I want it to succeed. I can understand those that don't want to completely give up FA if you have built up a user base but is it really that difficult to take a few minutes to contribute here too?

    It's not!

    I'd rather read two comments on this site than 20 on FA! This website seems more stable with a stable staff, if I'm going to rely on a hosted gallery I'd rather rely on one that isn't build on cardboard like FA is. All FA gives artists is attention because of it's user base, that's it!

    I'm holding down the fort right here and on FA.

    I think alot of it is habit. We go back to our older sites that we've established our existence. I'm still posting what I feel is worth posting. Still, its slow going but when I do remember to check, I try to find out what people are up to. Its a catch 22 on this one, can't always be that person that works the relationship, somethings gotta give back.
