Merge AC and WB?

MKRMKR Registered User regular
AC and WB are similar to how the WoW forum and MMO forums were - high volume of posts, low volume of new threads, with compatible demographics.

By merging the two:

* Writers get more exposure, and more critiques
* There's one less forum on the main page
* More people can poke fun at Jim's forum name

I don't even think there will be much resistance as was the case with the WoW/MMO merger because neither of these forums have a massive community built around one genre. We'll just be desegregating art, not pushing two very different communities in to one.

    I think that'd definitely push two different communities into one. Most of the residents of TWB are explicitly skilled at critiquing stories; same with AC and artwork. If you blend them, you're going to cross a lot of wires.

    Also, it makes it harder for a new writer/artist to get exposure when there's a combination of both mediums all over the place.

    I say it's fine like it is; that's why several forums have a writing section and an artist section separated.

    I don't see any reason to merge the AC and WB

    Please don't. AC is scary and WB is a lot less scary. Also, writing and drawing/photography are as different as debate (D&D) and video games (G&T).

    Also, there's really no stopping people from AC from coming to WB to offer crits right now, and there's really not much forcing AC regs to crit literary threads even if the subforums did merge.

    I think it would create more problems than it would solve, personally.

    AC, WB, and SE++ should be merged. This would amuse me.

    Surely you are mad.

    The universe would collapse on itself.

    two totally different crowds with totally different process and vibes...I see no need to merge them. I don't think it would help either to have the other.

    We already merged words and art and ended up with Graphic Violence.

    SA, 4chan, and SE++ should merge.

    There, I said what everyone was thinking.

    I see no point in doing this. It's not like merging anything makes it any faster or better.

    It just means you have to sort through more shit.

    But then the AC wouldn't be able to tell people to post their comics over in SE++ anymore.

    No no, rest assured we'd still find a way to enjoy doing that :lol:

    this is a great idea, it'll encourage me to use my new Sketch and Write visual diary

    i'll get to post pages of handwriting so messy it's impossible to decipher, next to pages of random pencil drawings that are scribbled out because i'm worried they might betray my subconscious desires (ie they look too much like willies)
