Who is Still Here?

Hi, Is anyone still here? I have always loved ArtWanted and been so saddened that it's not as popular as it once was. I have seen some life but not as much as I'd hoped. I want to come back but was wondering who is still here? Any long time friends still around? How about new friends? Please let me know if this site is worth coming back to....

It's a ghost town of a site for the most part. Very few active members (?) left. Even the Galleries postings are minimal at best. My projects just seem to get bigger, more complicated and a lot longer to complete, and I really haven't felt like posting generic photos. So about the only constant activity is the Premium Members complaining to AW about services. SSDD

Hi RQ and Thom!

Thanks for the low down....or lack there of. I've decided that I want to come back and do my part to try to breathe some life into this once great site.

I check in every once in a while. It's not like it used to be. I miss all the fights and controversy. Everyone is too nice now.

Well Dan, I could start complaining about the "Premium" members flooding the galleries with 3 to 25 pages of their ?? work. I tried complaining to AW staff but first, AW responded with "premium" members new perk (a couple of years ago) was unlimited posting. I Still complained but it fell on deaf ears. Perhaps next time I spot some I'll make note of it on the "Boards".

This is the first site I ever signed up to, over ten years ago, and I have barely come here at all in recent years. It seems that all social media sites are just sending into the void, anyways. I think I will spend a little more time here again.

Hi Everyone,

I'm happy to see that there are some new upgrades coming in the near future of ArtWanted. This is such a great site, it's easy to use and it's not cluttered as other communities. Plus, not to mention that there are some pretty amazing artists and friendly people here. I look forward to seeing ArtWanted grow and flourish once again!!!

We do have a lot of new things around the corner ever more than just the website redesign. Lots of good things to continue to make ArtWanted grow.

I enjoy posting my artworks and photography on ArtWanted. I enjoying getting encouraging and supportive feedback about my Portfolio postings from my ArtWanted Friends. I also enjoy viewing and commenting on postings of ArtWanted Members.

Been a member for 12 years, inactive since 2011 and. Just now returning.

So, I hope it isn't as dead around here as it sounds. It it is, I hope there is a rebirth in store for my old friend artwanted... I'll throw a little energy into such a mission.

I came back today. If there are even a frw active members willi g to work together to form community it will be worth it. And why I left? I am autistic and my mother who took care of me all my life died and I had been very shelteref and protected all my lifr and suddenly I had to fend for myself. Bern through much and got very depressed. Bevame diabetic and all kinds of troubles finally endrd up in hospital where I have started psinting and interestingly my stuff is better than when i left off. not allowed sny camerss here so cant post pics til i get out. Maybe in a month. But will try to gey familsr with those who are here. I am not a whiner or complainer. I will do my bedt to be an asset to the community. Adelle

Hello everyone,

This is just the post I was looking for. Based out of New York City, I was actually looking to get some information from Artists about what they look for from their online presence! For example, is the desire to connect with the community? To make money selling your work? The exposure?

I welcome all emails,

Sincerely,
