Hello friends! This is madnessism
, former Founder of #DM
. As you may know, it's been a while since I've been active on DA. Subsequently, this group more or less slipped into inactivity as well. Verticae
asked if they could revive the group, to which I readily agreed. Their enthusiasm spread to me as well, so I'm back again to help out the two new co-Owners. (They're both currently busy with the IRLs, but will be back soon with fabulous updates.) All three of us have some great ideas to get this group back into shape, and I'd like to share some of those ideas with you now!
DA's chat system has become much less active than in previous years. Instead of trying to force our members back into the chat, I've realized it makes far more sense to focus on the group instead. That's why groups were made, after all!
This doesn't mean we're closing the chat or no longer holding events like TAC. I'm going to leave the chat stuff to our new co-Owners. But there is no reason to restrict ourselves just to the chat, or to DA in general! My focus will be on the group and getting our members active and involved again!
Here are some of the ideas I've come up with...
More contests or challenges to create art.
A daily theme to create quick works (24 hrs max) for practice.
Live classes and tutorials via LiveStream.
Group drawing/painting sessions with voice chat.
So those are my plans for the future of DM. Please, feel free to reply with your own ideas or suggestions.Or just reply so we know you're still with us and interested!#DM
