    1000 citiques in a week. Possible? CA will unveil a surprise IF....

    Why is it that there is more jabber on this forums than critiques helping other artists? Why is it that there is more stroking compliments, often times, than there is helpful critiques? If we can hit 1000 critiques a week in the helpful critiques forum for 4 weeks in a row then Conceptart.org will unveil the first part of a big surprise for you all. It is a very good gift to the community. It will change CA for the better forever. Your abilities to meet other artists and to learn here on the site will become much easier. Learning in this group situation will be very much improved.

    Come on people...we can surely do this.

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=59

    If I had it my way, there would be at least a 1000 critiques a week in these areas...especially the helpful critiques forum. We have 180,000-250,000 unique visitors a month on conceptart.org and 20,000 members. Can we not do better than we are in terms of helping people with their art?

    Well, I'll try. This site does do a great job at helping people with their art already though. It keeps me focused, motivated, and inspired. Pretty much everything I know about art has been a result of this site.

    Edit: Did the Sketchbook section just become the main art board? If so, that rocks.. it's been my favorite area probably since I joined. Always thought it should be more of a focus with all it does. Sort of the base of operations for all serious people.

    the restructuring of the site came from the very first crit i recieved...a good one too...not about art...but about making a cleaner forums.


    so there ya go...and yes..sketchbooks deserves its own board.

    I personally make it a habit of stopping in here at least once a day and posting a crit, more if art catches my interest. If everyone did that, that be like...a whole shit load of crits here!

    Since I can't stand surprises, I'll be crit'in up a storm, I /must/ know what this secret is..

    that would take a year to count them. i'd assume only the critique section counts...

    This sounds fantastic, I've given 2 so far will continue so if just 100 of us members post 10 good critiques a week we'll make it? Well just in case 100 don't post I'll try to keep giving C&C as much as i can from now on!

    Not to sound too negative, but to be honest, I dont really see the reason for a section only designed for people who want critiques. I mean, doesnt everyone want critiques when they post a finished work or even a work in progress? Personally, I think it'd be easier to consolidate some sections together, but thats just my opinion.

    I don't want to ice down the steaming genetalia, but I don't think this will go without more art being posted on this part of the forum. There are only so many really good crits that can be written. I visit regularly (very) and after four or five good comments, no more really needs to be said (in most cases, unless someone pulls a Manky83).

    I love this community and get a warm oogy feeling when someone replies that they valued my comment, but Scotty, we need more power! Hopefully folks will see this effort and start posting more.

    And t-shirts; everyone would post more if they were sporting a spiffy "I helped crit a 1000 times a week and all I got was this shirt (and syphillis)" t-shirt.


    Maybe we should crit the DSG, too...
