I remember expressing this qualm of mine with debs a while back when she posted a link to this (very lovely) spot on the Fanpop Users Spot. Back then, I dropped it, because I wasn't too worried but browsing at the (again, very lovely) content that has been added, I do find myself wrinkling my brow slightly.
My confusion is this: Before this spot was created there was the "Creative Outlet
" spot, which was made with the same principals in mind as this spot. The creator aimed it more towards writing, but I have always considered it as a place for artwork of all kinds, otherwise I would have criticized that
spot for being too much like the writing spot.
So you can understand why I'm confused, as so little is added and/or rated in the Creative Outlet Spot, even though it has more fans. Maybe this is saying something about that
spot, but I feel like a lot of the content here would be more applicable over there, like original artwork and photography.
I asked debs originally if this had a "fan-work" focus, as in works of fan art, fan fiction, or fan videos, and she said it was basically everything... I know I'm being kind of a killjoy here and I really don't mean to, it's just I feel bad for my lonely Creative Outlet spot, as a contributer to it, and I guess what I'm saying is... all the cool kids decided to go sit at another table when we already had a perfectly good table.
This really is a lovely spot. I'm not saying it should be taken down or anything. I'm just asking for someone to clarify what exactly
makes this different than the Creative Outlet Spot, and a plea to give the poor fella a fighting chance and add some of your stuff over there, too. I know at least one underdog fan who would appreciate it.
Always rooting for the underdog,
