Just wanted to say thanks to Orn for closing that anatomy thread as it encouraged bad snobby behavior and made the forum a less encouraging place to be in. That's all!
While that is true, it's not the (only) reason he locked it.
don't see how, it was supposed to be an exercise for poeple to train their grasp of anatomy
encourages bad behavior,
The opening post doesn't, sure a lot of the posts after that might but that doesn't necessarily mean the entire thread is wrong. Besides, you're locking post encourages bad behaviour in me.
it had a point, improving anatomy knowledge in a fun way
for a good cause, the entire thread had to do with criticizing the art in it.
and poorly done,
It could have been done better yeah.... I've seen threads that started off worse than that still get by.
as in? you don't think it could help poeple increase their grasp of anatomy even a little? Not all threads in the art forum are helpfull anyways.
implies that the general populous of the art forum knows/ cares about proper anatomical structure
Oh right let's just remove the art101 tutorials too then? and you know what let's also not giving anybody any feedback on their work cause clearly they don't care about that. This is seriously the stupidest thing I've ever seen you write.
(with the OP being one of the least likely to have said knowledge)
how would that matter for the thread? it's not like he was gonna judge poeple and award prizes for who did the best job. It's a community project/activity
and will either continue to contain mean spirited attacks on user art,
yeah looked like that, I agree on this one. Don't think that this alone is enough reason to lock it.
or be a dumping for stylized work that NG artists didnt make which is hardly the right thing to base a thread off of.
luckily the thread wasn't based off of that, and I don't see what makes you think that that is what it would become.
Someone makes a good-spirited community activity, one that actually has the goal to help poeple improve their art, and it get's stomped in the ground like Mufasa by a herd of wildebeest. This shit really disappoints me and I sincerely think that closing post was uncharacteristically retarded from orn.
