Hello... anyone still out there? I know that even Geoff is more active on Face Book and another Model site. hmmmmmm is that part of the problem - lack of interest. Half the images that are posted of late have been snapshots and I'm starting to think about building a new site - else where. But I've made such wonderful friends here.
What's your thoughts on MUSECUBE. Is it dead or just hibernating.
I visit, but I don't wanna dominate the forums here. Also, I'm seeing a LOT of new talent coming in here. Just wish they'd talk to us (and people would respond more when they do).
Other sites are more active, but this is one where you can send folks to view EVERYTHING you have in your portfolio. That cannot be said for the others.
I would agree with Frederick that it is best to look at MC as a site of one's own and to consider the forums and crit galleries a bonus. I was on Geoff's Impact site for a while, but will be coming back here, as I do like the simplicity of these templates and even though there was a lot of flexibility with impact, I never found a template that I was truly happy with, so I am thinking that it would be like that anywhere and I certainly don't have the skills or desire to custom do a site (jeez, I'm lucky I can find my way around on here!)
Done rambing on... yes, I do hope that there is a bit more activity here. As for using Facebook, etc, to me, it's a social site first and an art site second, or third or fourth as it really doesn't seem like a serious place to display work.
I find MC the more interesting of the "modeling" sites largely because of the dedicated members who give thoughtful critiques to the work that's shown here. Having said that, I have yet to earn the first dime from contacts made on MC; financially this site is a disaster for me, but I don't look at it from a financial side. I wish that there was a bit more traffic; I also wish that the management exercised a bit more judgement in the kinds of work or members it allows on the site. I am seeing a lot of amateur/cell phone work from people who should be told politely that this is not the place for them.
