When I first joined drawar, I found it really exciting, as someone who was and still is hungry to talk (learn) about design, there was a lot of great discussion happening, and the sense of a growing, enthusiastic and colourful community. Scrivs was the instigator of much of those conversations and he did a great job of bringing us together.
The thing is, now that Scrivs has taken a back seat, and is obviously busy with other projects, I’m finding less really compelling threads on this site, and it’s become a bit more like the other web design communities (not a bad thing per se, but I loved that Drawar was different.)
I’m not trying to criticise anyone here, and I’m the first to admit, I’m not a prolific contributor to this site, but I was a prolific reader of this site back in the earlier days.
So I suppose the conversation I’m trying to start is this: what do you all think of Drawar lately, and is the community having the conversations you want to have? If not, why not?
Are the nuts and bolts of design a given for most of the rest of the members, so you all feel less need to dig them up and analyse them? Is your need for a community based more on the problems-shared-and-solved aspect?
I don’t think anyone can argue that the site seems quieter these days - there must be a reason. Let’s talk about it!
