Re: Miss the old RMD (memories and me ranting)

This is kinda funny because I was saying extremely similar things on other sites like tumblr and deviantart saying that this site has really died down and I want to bring it back up to when it was popular and I asked if anyone wanted to come back or start for the first time. But I'm 100% sure that everyone just ignored what I had to say...
However, I have been able to get into DrawChat. Though once it did glitch up and think I was still there when I was trying to get back in. But in DrawChat, I stumbled upon someone who I had once talked to and possibly drawn with in DrawChat LONG LONG AGO and they had just come back after a long time too, at practically the same time as me. And we talked about how much RMD has died down and the people who left and we both thought that we should bring RMD back to when it was popular again XP But yes, I'm officially back peoples! Hello new RMD generations! XD

We could try a little experiment...

You guys all make a commitment to be here more often, and to tell all your friends you are hanging our on RMD more often and see if it becomes contagious enough that all your old friends come back and chill with you like you remember smile


The best way to support our community is to just keep drawing - even if it's for fun and not serious. Another way is by taking time to occasionally rate and comments drawings by new or learning artists.

Re: Miss the old RMD (memories and me ranting)

Well when ever I want to "chill" each time rmd gets 4 new drawings in a day from me, that annoys me because I do twice more drawings on rmd than traditional media drawings.. eh...
But I cant help it. I really like java tool, in it drawing is fast and fun big_smile

Unfortunately I broke my tablets pen, I have slow internet connection, and my laptop is braking down, so I can draw only abstract drawings neutral but still its fun big_smile

Re: Miss the old RMD (memories and me ranting)

I do tell my friends about the site, but I'll just say it once hmm
I don't want to push it in their face and they didn't seem interested.
So... oh well (:

A friend of mine did make a ratemyanimations account. When she was making an essay about animation, I pointed her to that website ono
To make one and eventually show to the audience. She eventually made one by hand but she did have a lot of fun making an animation on rma.

But Mick...I don't HAVE any friends other than the people I've met on RMD. lol

How's that supposed to work?

Re: Miss the old RMD (memories and me ranting)

Am I hearing right? the biggest concern is who to invite?! the best thing is to post link in your social network website(on your page or in your "about me" section) post your drawings in your sites like deviant art and such. Why does it necessary has to be your close fiend? yikes

Re: Miss the old RMD (memories and me ranting)

The only problem I've had is the rates like you said. I work my butt off and rate a lot of other artists' drawings, but I'm so low on the rankings and I feel it's slightly unfair. I'm not really complaining, but it makes me sad :{

Re: Miss the old RMD (memories and me ranting)

I have been a member of RMD for almost 4 years ... I was here years before I had a facebook account. cool
I was completely obsessed with this site for the first two years. It was the first website I ever joined where I actually talked to real people.
Oh gosh, the memories are coming back ... they always make me smile. big_smile
During my third year here, I started getting busy and I wasn't on very often. Same thing happened this past year. And the less I was on, during the few occasions I visited, I noticed there was less and less activity. Back in the day, the forums would be active and exciting, updated every hour sometimes.... now some aren't even updated daily. It makes me sad. It makes me really sad. RMD is a part of my childhood and I have a lot of memories here. I think it's so wonderful that one day I can come back and look at my old drawings ... and see how I improved, slowly but surely ... ahh. That's why I come back. RMD is kind of like a diary for me. My art reflects how I feel, or what I'm into. And I want to be able to always come back for the memories. I think websites have their slow times, and their busy times. It's just slow right now. At least for me. But it will comback to life soon. smile
I will never leave RMD. <3 :')

In the old days (like way before they have the landscape paper option) RMD was my all time favorite place to be. I would draw every single day and would get comments and ratings and so much helpful critisizm. It felt like Mick and all the mods really cared about this site! I remember the grand introduction to Rate My Animations. I had a ton of friends on DC and wed make so much artwork. I had the time of my life!... Now fast forward to modern RMD...sign... I feel like ratemydrawings.com has really fallen down a deep hole. At one point i stopped coming online because i couldnt become a mod, then i stoped because of rating issues, then i stopped agian because i moved and had to get a new compiter and all that wonderful stuff. I just came back online today....sign... There is so many problems with rmd i was to rant about. first off what the holly heck is wrong with drawchat?! i keep hearing ppl complain about it and i cant get it to open myself. sooo there goes the best part about rmd. Next complaint. The website-wide comps. Emotions? Isnt this the third tiime this was a comp? Next complaint. Its called RATE my drawings rigght??? the why the heck is it so hard to get rates??? Next complaint. This could be jsut because im annoyed at all the other factors but it feels like mick just doesnt care anymore. that saddens me. I want to see RateMyDrawings.com brought back to its formal glory but i cant do it by myself. you all need to invite people here! get some members that will stay and mick fix the god dang issues on this site! I want the old site back! Focus less on updating for the moment and more on getting people to stay! soooo everyone should start throwing out truthful ratings. lets all work together to make this site amazing agian
there are some breathtaking works on this site. thats my possitive note.


                                                                                         HIGHLY ANNOYED

I totally agreee!! i prefer the RMD in the old days ><

Hina's trying to. I really am. But still...although drawing is fun, Hina is a very busy everyday so drawing regularly is too difficult... Rating someone else's drawing is out of the question if you can't even log in.

Im trying to convince my brother to draw in rmd again (he introduced the site to me) but t'was to no avail... =_=;
Showed my friends rmd and at first they were like... "cool" then after awhile they'd be like "...uhmm... Okay"

There must be a way to make rmd a more fun and excting drawing site to draw in. Coz frankly, Im geting bored again and if that happens, chances are I wont log in again till next year.

It's not that easy, Mick. you can't expect us to know several people who are interested in art, want to share it with others, but have no way to (I sounded like an infomercial, sorry).
Outside of school, I don't have friends that live remotely close to me. I'm surrounded by raging kids and raging...senior citizens.

I agree. I've had TONS of friends here in the first year I've been here on RMD, whom quit and joined DeviantArt.
I still have contact with them, so I'll try my best to bring them back. I've already been doing that for a couple of months. x]]
