an option for a mobile version would be good. im now mostly on my smartphone and rmd has only a desktop mode. a way to visit the drawings and commenting them. i havent been drawing much since i begun working.

RMD really needs an app. But it'll probably never happen.

A free downloadable app would be neat. Something to think about.

I think that the only main difference that I have seen since I joined is the decreasing activity from RMD members, particularly from skilled artists. Usually this site used to have on average around 300-500 people online, and on weekends Draw Chat used to have around 25 people on average. The site was definitely more active on the users part. Perhaps, RMD should seek new methods towards attracting more people to the site. I know this is an Art site, but Draw Chat has a social aspect and it was the main platform where many artist interacted with one another, and it is good. Now, in light of this, perhaps that part of RMD should have newer means for communicating with fellow artist, such as webcams. Obviously, this is a 'family' friendly site, and webcams do open windows where RMD doesn't have total control of. Anyway, webcams may be a nice idea, but risky. Perhaps, a permanent IP address ban may serve as a deterrent for misbehavior. This is just my thought.

Same here. I originally joined RMD in 2008 on my first account... and there used to be quite a lot of people on RMD. Especially in the DrawChat. Now you're lucky to see just 10 people. Not sure what happened...

I have come to hate Canvas Draw.  Would really love RMD to have an app for smartphone or tablet.  But I miss being on here and am going to try to rectify the situation...

Yeah, a lot has died down... and JavaDraw used to work just fine for me, too, but it's been a long time since it's worked, so I just stick to FlashDraw and CanvasDraw... which I don't mind, though, because I like them all. It would be nice to have JavaDraw as another option, though. I like it, too.

What seems to be the problem with JavaDrawing tool? It works great for me, except that I have to configure my Java settings in order to allow RMD to use Java.

It's been ages since I was active here. RMD is where I really started getting into digital art, and even just drawing in general.
I miss  the large amounts of active members.
Drawchat used to get so full (like, 40 members at once!), and yeah, sometimes it was a pain in the butt not being able to get the room you wanted, but there were lots of people to chat with!
I've grown since I first joined, started university, etc. I always want to get back into RMD, but I never seem to have the time.
I hope I can change that before it's too late.

Here's a quick question: Who remembers Sadik? Or AuroraSkye even?

LOL. Well coming from me, ya the rating system was more fitting back then but what really made me upset was knowing people viewed but didn't rate idk it i know people are like "o a view is like a vote" but you could at least drop a rate before you leave.

but ya it was called "ratemydrawings" and the rating system wasn't even fair because it was either you get 5 hearts or none at all because they felt it was offensive if they gave any less than that. That's why the like system is a bit better imo because it's easier and you don't actually have to show how much you like it. you just simply like it.

Rmd was a Lot more active back then. Coming from someone who went on hiatus and came back just recently, there has been less drawings, less people who have been going online, less likes, etc. it seems that rmd is becomming a smaller and smaller community. I wouldn't really know how to contribute to this site, but i did make a new account to see if I can still make it in the high ranks based on now rmd is now.

Anyway, it was nice seeing you all and kudos to you if you remember me UvU

I wish we could organize our own drawings on RMD. That would be so cool! Someone wrote about that once or twice in the forums before and I really liked that idea.
