IB Status: Will no longer post artwork here.

Not sure if anyone here has really noticed but I stopped posting on IB for the most part.

I'm not trying to sound negative but I have decided that posting here is not worth the extra time and effort. I feel that there is very very little return for the time it takes to post here especially since I post to both FA and SF as well. I will be leaving my gallery here as is and will possibly make posts every once and a while to the site here but for the most part I am going to leave it alone.

If you enjoy my work, I suggest watching me at my FA or SF accounts as both are updated on a regular basis.

If we as in "your watchers" mean so little to you that not posting art here, "because its not worth your time", then why the hell would we bother watching you on FA?!

If you want to twist mel's words, that's your deal. It's pretty obvious what he means though. Nobody uses IB, so why go through the extra effort keeping it updated in a ddition to two other sites? If you want to spin that into a slight against yourself, than go ahead and don't watch on FA.

"nobody uses IB?"  I get most of my commissions and have more watchers here than FA and twice what I have on SF

Basically what Mel is saying is he doesn't want to spend the time to build up a base here and get more commissions that way, his loss really

You realize that amount is a rounding error for FurAffinity, right?

You realize that 150,000+ users is not zero, right?

Unless you think everyone here is a bunch of nobody's.
If that's the case, why are you here? o.o

It is my interpretation and it will stay that way based on what he said.  Thank you for your opinion though.  And saying nobody uses IB is just plain stupid!  I only use IB and I only commission from artists on this site.  he is basicly saying that we are not worth his time here on inkbunny, yet he wants us to go to FA to watch or commission there.  Why should I use a website I dislike in order to please him?

It's not that I don't appreciate the watchers I have here. It actually a lot of work to maintain 3 galleries and I just hit a point where 3 was just too much. IB ended up being the logical choice because my art does not really get seen here like it does on FA and SF. I did comparisons and one piece will on average (within the first day of it being posted) will get about 200 to 400 views on FA, 100 views on SF and 15 views here. Also from what I recall I also haven't really gotten any commission requests through this website from anyone in the two and a half years I have been active.

I also have about 40+ hidden submissions of artwork that I uploaded in bulk from a backlog and I just seem to be unable to get the motivation to go in and put in all the information for them. To me that was a clear sign that I needed to slow down and just focus on two galleries instead of 3. IB just became the logical choice.

Also I do appreciate all the watchers that I have here. That is why I put up a journal to give everyone a heads up with what was happening. I do see where I may have come across in a way that seems I'm upset, and in a way I was. It's because I'm feeling burned out trying to keep this gallery running when it's not living up to my expectations. However none of that was meant to be directed at anyone in particular and I still plan to stick around.

I'm not really leaving per say. I'm still sticking around and not really 'leaving' IB. I'm just taking a step back and going to stop posting art here. I will still check in to the site.

Well maybe you can post stuff that FA or SF doesn't allow you to post there. =3

Glad you were wearing your asbestos overcoat, Mel. *tease* At the risk of adding fuel, I'll say that each of the three sites has a certain following. After some 3+ years on FA, I had almost no watchers and less than 1200 page views on my stories and writing. On SF, in about 18 months, I have nearly 20,000 page views -- they seem to like writers better over there. And like you (if I understand correctly), it seems more reasonable to spend more time at the place(s) where you get the best response. So I "lurk" on here and FA, posting my stuff mostly on SF.

For what it may be worth, you're well worth watching, and I've got you on my SF list. Thanks for your concern and consideration for your IB watchers... even those who don't seem to have a strong understanding of well-written English. ~_^ *ducks behind the flame-retardant shielding*

Since this is the only site I use it seems I'll be un-following.
