Thought I would share. I won't include their names, despite that some of them still goes here and will be read and shared in their own little community.
This person, let's call him Jerry, creates an art chat based on people he found in Newgrounds. Once he collected a fairly large amount of people, let's just say that they had a community that understands and think like each other.
It's been there for a long time now, I've been added there and, despite by better judgment, sometimes casually see what they're up to. I say "better judgment" because of all the nsfw they post.
And eventually, a conversation popped up. One of the chat members are asking about what art community to join, and after discussing about it, this eventually came out.
Jerry - I think you have a misunderstanding of the relationship i have with the people i added from Newgrounds. I added artists from Newgrounds who seemed interested in the chat. Some of them became my friends after i did this.
Newgrounds is an absolutely terrible community. I do not suggest it, there are a few people who lurk there that are okay and have some masochistic need to stay there.
Chat Member - They stay there because they dont know how to join other communities. They are manchildren.
Jerry - I would say its more that they're set in their ways and are oldfags of their community.
As you can see Jerry does have a point, even if it could have been worded better. When I read this, I just can't not ask this forum's opinion on the matter too.
Is the Newgrounds forum art community really bad as most people who left say it is?
And the people who chose to stay are "masochists" who are compelled to stick to their old ways?
