What about an "Art on Display" group?



  • We have several people in the community who are artists of one form or another. What about having a group dedicated for displaying photos, listening to songs or watching videos made/taken by any given Fruit Tart? I know we have Water Closet but this could be a more dedicated section. Just a thought.



  • AJ this is an IT community for discussing IT Pro related things. The only place we have for non-IT items is the watercloset. We really are trying to keep the sprawl of unrelated things down to just that area.

    It was just a thought. I know it's IT.

    I agree.



  • Yes, if we go down that road, where does it end? A group just for pictures of kids. A group for cooking. A group for video games. A group for anything. If any particular topic is worth of a group, the question should be "is it worthy of a community"? If cooking, for example, was so important that we wanted to have a forum about it, then having a cooking community would be great. Having a "cooking group for IT pros" makes no sense as the fact that we are IT pros is an arbitrarily limiting factor on a cooking discussion. If you want a good cooking discussion, don't limit it to IT pros.

    Video gaming would be a great consideration for its own community. I have been wanting to have a community just around literary gaming. If there is interest, let's talk to the GroveSocial people.



  • I wouldn't have an issue with a videogaming community. I have people that might be able to do that for us 😛

    That would make sense. And videogaming is not one word. 😛



  • yes it is when you are the Minion Queen. I have decided that I can make up my own words and spelling for them. I am the Queen after all!

    It is now, this is how words are created. Half the words in Shakespeare were not words until he made them.

    I wouldn't exactly consider Danielle the next Shakespeare...



  • No offense @Minion-Queen

    I don't think Shakespeare's peers considered him the next whatever they had before that either.

    If I recall from English class many of his peers thought he was a bit of a buffoon who wrote cheesy plays without deep meaning or context. Although the royalty loved him so...

    A video game community would be fun... although some of the type of people dedicated communities attract are not the most friendly.

    Yeah, that's a bit of an understatement.



  • @coliver that's partially why I'm looking, for me at least, a community completely dedicated to literary gaming. There are lots of general gaming communities out there already. Never going to really compete with those. But something unique, like discussing gaming in a storytelling context would be something special.
