    So I've read that MB is creating a new forum. Anyone have any more details?

    Hi everyone. I saw the awesome news that Massive Black is going to be creating a new forum. Sounds like it will try to bring the early days of Conceptart.org back with a lot of major artists participating in the community. I'm excited.

    Wondering if anyone know more...?

    Here's the original facebook post.

    The sun is down, but the day is not done! After much demand we’re jumping in on the forums!
    Over the next few months, we will be building a comprehensive forum that will allow users to share their art and ideas and get valuable feedback/ critiques from other working artists. There might be some familiar faces from online forum post and some new ones too!
    Thanks to all your information and suggestions we’re making it better, stronger, faster. It’ll have all the great features that you love and nothing you don’t So I've read that MB is creating a new forum. Anyone have any more details?.
    Stay tuned for more info.

    And why exactly is MB going to succeed while they failed earlier, not caring rats asses about conceptart.org?

    The main reason pretty well most of the pros left, was a personality clash (I'm being polite here) with the owner. Even the pros miss a good forum - facebook is shit for that kind of stuff. From my understanding there will be a paid subscription and a free part. If any of you think putting a forum together is easy, let alone running it, let me tell you it isn't. Even off the shelf stuff needs tweaking, permissions for different users, spam catchers put in etc etc. I know all the mods, old and current, have been approached in helping and I don't believe anyone said no.

    I didn't say yes either, as I was not approached.

    Except it's not. This has nothing to do with Manley at all. I don't know where you are getting your info from.

    Well, its reassuring that Jason will not be involved. He still claims to be the owner of conceptart.org, but I see he is no longer ruling Massive Black.

    They had a parting of the ways several years ago.
