Do not hesitate to ask our help, for we well know how hard any chosen path can be. Take a drink and tell us of your issues, only then may a problem be solved in peace and quietness




(sorry to those who get this twice)

So, yeah, a little over two years ago a now very good friend of mine introduced me to dA. Since I was a fervent writer I immediately signed up.
Since then, now 2 years later, I've uploaded quite a few pieces. Some have been removed or revised. Yet, I've never been able to get the feedback I wanted, though I signed up for more then enough groups - even some that claimed they were the group that I needed to be with if I wanted lots of views or feedback.
Eventually I started my own group, hoping it would become a place where people would both give and get feedback. I never got that to work either..

Due to this, and real life, I will probably not be on much anymore. I don't see the point anymore in uploading anything, since it doesn't get any views or feedback. Please don't say "but you do it for yourself", because yes, I do it for myself. That's why I am able to make this decision, because don't think this comes lightly or that I make this choice on a whim.
Also, don't come with things like "but you comment only a little" because I USED TO comment a lot. In the end, since due to trouble with that I stopped with that too.
This is MY choice, and I hope you respect that.

Noten is the new Criminal Master Mind, so Blogs, Contests etc will be handled by him from now on. I don't know what he has planned and what not, but perhaps he can do where I have obviously failed.

He did do a little blackmailing, he wants me to keep uploading on Skeleton Key (in my gallery as The Beginning). Clearly my hands were bound so I'll keep doing that....

So yeah, this is it. If you need me, you can note me obviously.

I'm so sorry to hear this :( I haven't been as active as I used to either. It seems like everyone is on dA to receive comments, but no one is really here to give comments, at least not comments that are helpful. I have two groups of my own and I haven't been able to keep up with them, so it's not really the same situation you're in, but I understand anyway. I'm really sorry you feel that you're being reduced to not coming on as much. :iconsadhugplz: I really hope that at some point things will improve and you'll be back once again! Thanks for all your hard work here on dA :heart:

On a more positive note, though, a warm welcome to Noten! Best of luck in running the group :hug:

Thank you for your support! I have been striving from my profile, to 3 groups, including this one, to make an atmosphere where people give critiques as well as receive them. I will try to keep the members active and not bug them but it will be up to you whether this group succeeds or not :) Thank you again for your support and Cee truly did a lot to make this group work. I as an Admin am witness. :salute:

I hope so as well :) I will make a journal discussing the new rules as soon as I get them discussed with the Admin. Do participate in polls and Journal discussions!

Cee: I'm sorry that this has been a failed endeavor for you. The difficulty with trying to do something like this (the comments and critiques) is the anonymity. People can sneak in, read something, and sneak out without being noticed, and many prefer it that way. But I greatly admire your efforts to make it work. I think if you look around in your town, you'll find a group of people who offer what you're looking for. I wish you luck and happiness.

Welcome to Noten. Good luck. I have a feeling you will need it.

Thank you :) Luck is something that I do need. I have plans to make some changes in the group and honestly, I will need the luck and co-operation of the members as much as of the Admin... and of cee of course. I hope she sticks around! Stay active for any Journal/news in the group. I would prefer the members contribute to giving and receiving critiques but I have different ideas which I will discuss shortly. Thank you for your support.

cee did quite a hard job... I would never deny that. And that is what made me take the job :D
