Alright, I'm getting the hang if this place now.
Got front-paged a couple of times, made a ton of new art friends, and discovered so many new artists I never would have heard of otherwise. Also, on the whole, this place is about a million times more helpful, and welcoming than I thought it'd be.
I know it's still early days for me here, but so far, I'd say this is exactly the kind of community I've been looking for.
Thanks for that.
