I've noticed that images posted on Weasyl don't seem to get a lot of comments, and I'm wondering, is that a function of Weasly just having a smaller user-base as yet? Is it inconvenient to comment on stuff in some fashion? Or is just that the site is more of a "oooh, look at the purty pichers!" kind of place? Or maybe it's a combo of all or some of the above?
I do have to admit that the layout and design do seem to have a sort of "gallery" feel to them, where looking at the art is the primary focus and comments and other forms of communication are sort of secondary - in fact some of the other functions for controlling things are downright obscure (trying to put up a streaming notice is a 5 minute hunt every time).
-edit- Heck, I only just noticed that it looks like you can't reply to comments: the "buttons" to reply and link to a comment are hidden until you mouse-over the comment itself.
