photography/artwork subforum for general banter?


Go to solution Solved by ganus,

Recommended Posts

considering the popularity of 'pictures you took that you're pleased with' and 'post your most recent artwork', i was thinking a subforum for this stuff inside genbant like the football one mightn't be a bad idea. we could split stuff into topics like nature photography, abstract, 3d renders, photomanipulation, architecture, HDR images, that sort of stuff! what say ye?

yeah this is a fucking great idea.

We're artists, pretty much everyone who makes the kind of weirdo music we like/make delves into other medias.

This forum should be about creativity, and creative works shouldn't have to live next to stupid internet humor and the whinging of neurotics and bickerers.

 

edit: videos should have a section/thread to itself as part of this. pretty sure there are lots of people here who do video.

subforums are evil.

 

the cool thing about genban is that it feels like walking into some kind of carnival with various stands and attractions, splitting some of those attractions away to different subforums will make it less colorful and take away from the feeling of community a bit. football subfoum makes sense because there are like 3-5 people who want to talk about football, with arts its different, pretty much everyone is interested in it.

besides, what would you do in that subforum that you can't do in existing topics ?

I have to agree with Eugene... plus the arts bring a certain balance to genban.

Shall we put it to a poll? I agree there's enough film, video games, books, and art discussions to warrant their own subforum, but on the other hand, then what would General Banter be? Or, is it better to have the creative stuff in a place where people looking for specifically that can discuss it?

Do you guys think a sub forum will provoke more participation to art sharing or less? I have no idea, it could go either way.

Probably more intimidating for the new user, but a better atmosphere with more feedback for the regular.

I'd prefer the art/creativity threads to be a free for all in genban. I fear we'd end up with a handfull of people checking out and posting the diy art subforum, while the rest of us forget to head in there to check the stuff out. YLC isn't the most inspiring of places, which I guess is the most similar place we have to what an art subforum could be.

if there's only 3-5 people talking about football i don't think it warrants a subforum. it was created during the world cup when there was lots of football chat... i mean me, jules and couple others like talking chairs but a single thread in genban seems to be sufficient.

 

but i also like adj's idea of expanding YLC to include other artistic media.

      I believe there is already a topic dedicated to graphics: now I haven't found it, so I write this: eventually deleted and incorporated it into the already existing one.   Among other things, In this interview Ian Anderson talks about his relationship with S&R and the philosophical stimulus specifically related to ae, and the love for oversteps:   https://warp.net/editorial/reasonable-person-an-interview-with-ian-anderson?fbclid=IwAR1sKpJx1eULMucWR_HwklBLSi0yCtnMei2-iRFuYoX9fUfd6hYMnxY0QvQ

      I'm looking for high res AE artwork to turn into a poster for my room, the only problem is it's somewhat hard to find... 
      I'd love to have the poster in A1 or at least 20" x 30" so it's gotta be big. Can anyone help? 

      Pic related my best find so far, I'm sure you guys have better shit though.
