Ted and Di - There are several artists with topics on the boards like Velocity, Derrick in a Dress, etc. They did create their topics in these areas because there was no place for artists to be listed together before on the MBoards. I would like to get their permission and wait until we launch. If they choose to move, then I'd love to have them here and would do the best job I could to let them be all they can be. I would like for all such artists thinking of moving into ArtMaker to have pre-launch access so they can contribute and take a look for themselves. The ArtMaker BackOffice is on a little hyatis for the moment, so granting access is going to take a few days, but getting a list together of people who might like to be moved in here may not be a bad idea. But have no idea who to ask to help with this.
Thanks for the offer and putting your trust in me, but I know Velocity, not well, but well enough to know that she should be given the choice. No matter, I'll always come and dance at her shows, she plays damn good music.
Regarding artists in existance, topics on fine art should of course go in here. They could only be discussions unless we had the rights of the artists' images to post, but we could always reference sites of interest. Who knows maybe down the road fine artists would want to be showcased here? But you are right, such topics are very important and necessary. Ted and Di -- do you have a favorite artist you'd like to start a topic on in here to set an example others may follow?
