Hey, good to see some other sign of life here. I'm sure you'll liven the place up a bit.

all right, it's so quiet in here now! I'm going to just make some noise!!! I'm super excited for this battle! I was a little nervous about the theme we picked, but I have my head full of ideas and can't wait to see what Andy comes up with for the first round!

Good luck with the noise making Dawn. Neither my nor Dees' last blows have any ratings, and only a couple of comments. The one before that has 3 ratings, and one of them is my own. I'm well accustomed to minimal interest in my stuff, but this is something else. These days I'm simply here for the challenge to improve my skills. Maybe you'll fare a little better.

Gee I wonder what caused this place to lose that community feel?

People seem to be too busy, I think we need a brainstorming session with some admin (che? Colonel?) sum of dose guys methinks, and work out some ways to improve the cage for newbies, and oldies!


Plus we are no longer on the contact sheet, we just seem to be on the back burner. Any admin want to chime in?

I suspect Dave was referring to the general loss of community amongst contributors due to major changes mandated from above. Not sure how this affects customers, which most steel cage battlers primarily are.

I've been brainstorming, please chat me. I want to know what you all want/miss. I know I miss the community.

Yay! go Dawn and Andy - have fun!


My theory on the quietness of the cage is that now most of us noisy ones are friends on Facebook we don't come here just to chat anymore... paired with the economic downturn meaning designers can't afford so much playtime.

I think there's another issue. Regulars haven't been as successful in the last few BRs as they might have hoped, and I think they've finally simply walked away from it all. Several top competitors haven't been heard from since the last BR final.


I think it's a bit unfortunate that a talented newcomer will always seem more 'fresh' than someone who has been battling for a while. In art the old guard is at a distinct disadvantage.

No, I haven't been able to dl SC images last battle or this one. I contacted support but their advice didn't help. I don't think this problem will be high on their priority list. One reason I'm doing so much rendering and painting, although that suits my current direction too.


The error I get is an XHR error. This generally refers to XMLHttpRequest object, so I'm guessing there's a problem with their AJAX scripting.

Support first suggested that I clear my cache (didn't help with any of three browsers) and secondly that it's a firewall issue (something about allowing JSON content), but disabling my firewall completely didn't help the problem either. Good luck. sxc.hu is a free image site (owned by Getty so I guess it's OK to mention it here)
