Cyber-bullying is NOT allowed in RMD right?

Re: A few guidelines for bettering our community.

How do you go about asking people to look at your art without coming off as "begging for ratings". I know how I feel when I have worked hard on something and few people notice it or comment on it. I cannot imagine how discouraged members must be who have posted their drawings to only have them ignored time after time.

I am here for several reasons. One of which is to improve my work. Another is to have a response to my work. Is there really any artist that would show their art and not care if it is appreciated?

I know that you have to comment on other artists to get your name around but it seems to me that this is a game being played extremely well by some. It is a fine line between doing that and begging for ratings.

I am in awe of some of the talent on this site. Continuously amazed and challenged to better my work. Do I expect to be the "best"??? Never. Do I expect to get noticed for my work...it would be nice. Do I feel that you can honestly rate drawings here without suffering a backlash on your own work? No.

Re: A few guidelines for bettering our community.

Glynn is right.  This should always be a safe place for sharing.

I guess my advice would be:  let people be themselves.  No one should assume that they understand the mind or motives of another user.  When users start threads or make comments challenging why other users do what they do, draw what they draw, and say what they say, it creates an atmosphere of paranoia where people can't freely create art or make comments without worrying about what other users will think of them.  It shouldn't be that way.  The best thing we can all do for this community is to support each other ... not tear each other down.

I'm posting in an old thread, but I was just reading through and that caught my eye.

And I agree 100%. The feeling you get when you put hard work into something, just to see that it's just drowned out in the sea of other drawings... feels bad. And most people want to be noticed when they put a lot of hard work into something. Some people here just draw to put their emotions into the site, and they draw for themselves, and that's awesome. I have some drawings that had that same purpose. But for some drawings, you have that small feeling of hope that people will look at it and comment and talk about it.
The thing is, there's over 500,000 drawings on the site, and over 56,000 artists.
So just making a piece of art, then not saying anything about it will most likely make you have some very, very low views, since there's already so much other stuff to look at.
So how do you get people to look at it without begging for rates? Personally, I don't really care about rates, I just like it when people look at my art and tell me what I could do better. I think you have to give rates to have rates.
But I'm also a hypocrite. Because honestly, I don't just go around looking at as many drawings as I can, rating and commenting. And I think that's one of the best ways to get noticed. Because I know that on my end, when I'm given advice, I check out the advisor's profile to see how they draw, and usually I'll start rating/commenting on their art.

To finish the rant, because I don't really know what I'm getting at, I just think that if you want your art to be appreciated, go ahead and appreciate art around you first. Chances are, people will start looking at your art more.

Agree?

i'm 11, that doesn't stop me from coming on here, and from people really enjoying my artwork
i feel sorry for whoever you are talking about ):

I actually do log onto the site and just look at pieces to comment and rate them. You can't comment on everything but I try to encourage people even if I'm not in the drawing mood myself......Thank you  for commenting. I appreciate what you have said and that you took the time to write it.

Re: A few guidelines for bettering our community.

No problem smile I don't spend an enormous amount of time on the site, so when I am, I'm usually just sketching, and I don't really go around commenting/rating. It's usually when I see people talk to me that I'll go rate their drawings, so I don't really get all that much views lmao tongue

I have said this too myself over and over again. I draw for me, but some of my drawings I put so much effort into. I spend all day or a week to draw it and in return just a few rates. It makes me wonder....I don't care about the rates either. What I liked was when I joined 2 years ago people were constantly rating me fair, and leaving great advice along with writing me with some tips. Now a days I get cute, nice or no comment at all. I don't care to be top artist I just want to know how to get better for myself. Instead of the hate rating, no comments, and no rate at all.

I  love to come on here not just to draw but to look at the wonderful art, and love to compare the artist 1st drawing to how long they been on RMD and then look at their new stuff. It lets you know what wonderful artist RMD makes.

Re: A few guidelines for bettering our community.

I completely agree with these guidelines. I know that some members are constantly trying to break the rules, and it really annoys me. mad I ALWAYS try to follow the rules of a site. I know there were some sites I saw that looked fun, but then I looked at the rules and it was like they didn't have very good rules. hmm Or you were allowed to do things on the site I don't want people to be doing around me. It would just make me mad and I'd quit. neutral So I didn't join. But anyway, I love RMD because of the guidelines it has, to keep people from doing things that aren't allowed. Unfortunately some people are still breaking the rules, but it's not as often. ^-^
