“It sounds mercenary and it smacks of rats leaving the sinking ship. But get real, when everyone is bailing out, you don’t want to be the last man standing.”
Need I say more? A controversial image created this morning after waking to find Four more groups closing, yesterday it was three, the day before, four others sent up announcements of closing. Seems RB has sunk its own ship with the constant Growth of their Company, which in reality has become a major liability. The endless Fixes RB has employed of things not broken has discouraged those who were so very committed here no so long ago.
I see endless snapshots rather than quality, well thought photographs, and artworks thrown together without planning. It is apparent by the feed each day not many are contributing, less comment or join in group activities, and the list of groups shrinks out of site with each new day.
What was once a flourishing art community that we all could embrace, where we took the hands of the Newbie and helped them through, now lies in the vast seas as it ship sinks below the horizon. What more is there to say, only the sorrow remains.
