I figured I would post this and share this with ya all. Recently as many as you know, DA has been, well.....nerve wrecking is a good phrase, with all of the time-outs and instability. The sheer lack of the administration there updating the community and telling them what is happening only came after nearly 3 months went by. As many of you also know, there really isn't an alternative to DA unless you count SheezyArt as one....blah, exactly lol Until now it seems..... Recently I saw a message in a news post about a new site called Storm-Artists, and from what I have seen, it is much the way DA used to be a few years ago. It is new so there aren't THAT many people on there, just a few thousand, but the customizable options and the sites speed make it quite a worthy contender. There are also no membership levels it seems. It's all free. Right now the place is in need of some good photographers, like-minded individuals as you all here. The message center is quite familiar though also more broken down for ease of operation (in essence, more refined) Just figured I would give out a FYI, and yes they have groups as well. My site can be seen here http://kkart.storm-artists.net/ I hope some of you will join us on there!
