The SCC artist thing was mostly just an example, I don’t think i’d feel differently if I wasn’t on the team ;3; and now I understand what your first few lines meant; my bad! It’s just, yeah xD we clearly respond differently, and I just kind of. Idk sigh and eyeroll when he promotes artists because to me it’s like “HEY GUYS GUESS WHAT I REALLY LIKE THIS PERSON AND BUY ART FROM THEM AND YOU SHOULD TOO SO HERE’S SOME ICONS FOR YOU” or whatever, he advertises for them basically? And it makes me jelly :U cause like I said, aywas is full of artists and singling out a few every now and then just doesn’t make me feel very good.What? Yes, he likes them… What? I don’t understand the first couple lines of your response, but yeah I am complaining about those shout-outs you see nothing wrong with. I don’t pay any attention to site contests, but I’m alerted to news posts, as a lot of other users are, too? Since you don’t agree there’s no need for clarification or anything, so, just wanted to post that up there :U I was just getting my feels out. I was pretty butthurt when Osiem and Cat were both added to the (top of the) SCC artist page and both got a ton of promotion via news posts when I joined right after and was just stuck quietly somewhere in the middle. I know not all artists get promoted via a news post or anything, especially not all SCC artists or anything? It was just unfortunate timing and coincidence that made me feel kinda crummy.
I really really wish slash would stop promoting random artists he likes who join the site :/ It’s not that they’re not talented or anything, it’s just… it’s a site full of artists. I don’t appreciate him just singling out the ones helikes to commission.
But if he…
Well, hey, I wasn’t trying to call you out or anything like that— just putting my two cents in. Don’t worry about trying to follow my train of thought, er, but I’ll try to explain—
“I really really wish slash would stop promoting random artists he likes who join the site…”
So the thought that followed was, “Well, who else would he promote? Artists he didn’t like?” You’ll have to forgive me for my slightly broken response.
Sorry to hear you felt shoved under the rug. :/ I know that’s a frustrating feeling. That said, I’ve always enjoyed the artists he shows in the news posts— but I’m not a part of the site staff/art staff/breeding artist/anything like that. I only play on the site. It may be different for me if I was actually an SCC artist or something like that.
