I have spoken to a few different artists about this, and the general consensus is that painters, pencil pushers and digital artists feel very much out of place at the moment. They don’t feel right posting under /madebyhand and honestly I don’t blame them, because the first thing I think of when I see /madebyhand is DIY, arts and crafts etc, not necessarily more “traditional” types of art.
My best friend has recently started uploading and they already feel disenfranchised with the removal of the art category; they and many others were super excited to post but now there is an air of frustration borne of confusion about which category is the most appropriate to post in.
I know there have been one or two threads broaching this topic briefly, and there is the channel request form, but I feel like a thread where we can all throw our support down for the return of a generalised Art category would be super helpful! There’s a massive community that is going to be under represented if the Art channel isn’t reinstated, and that would be such a shame for those creators and the app itself
What do you all think? Sound off
