Hey look, my first post here. *waves*
So, Inkbunny has a feature where you can upload multiple files per submission. My guess is that the intent is mostly to allow an artist to group multiple versions of the same piece together, or group a related series of pictures together, like a comic or something similar.
The problem I see is that a lot of artists don't use it this way. They just upload a bunch of unrelated art all at once under the same submission with only the most tenuous connections; e.g. they were all done in the same streaming session or whatever. Which leads me to ask, if you weren't streaming at the time, and you were working on a series of commissions for an evening, would you still group them together?
So, as a result, if I'm not looking carefully, I'll miss art uploaded this way, since I'm not expecting multiple files in a submission. This means, that you as an artist get less exposure for your art, because I'm sure I'm not the only one. It makes it less likely that I'll fav a submission if I see both something I hate and something I love in the same submission, which again reduces exposure. I'm sure I'm not the only person who uses the 'popular' section to look around for new people to watch. And even if I do fav it, it's less convenient for me, as I may see a thumbnail I don't recognize in my favorites.
So, please, artists, don't hide your artwork this way. Please take a bit of extra time to separate your uploads into different submissions. Your watchers will thank you, and you and your art will benefit from greater exposure.
