The past few months have had us at JennyStokes-Favs a little concerned about our artistic haven we embraced on DA. Firstly it was the feeling that there is a decline in member participation and contribution to the community. That we addressed in our previous journal and then the looming upgrade to “eclipse” which has received rather mixed reviews by the few that have had the opportunity to test drive the forthcoming upgrade to the DA platform, had us in two minds about continuing.
After a much contemplation and reflection, we have to say, that firstly we were greatly encouraged by all the positive response to our previous journal that the DA community is very much alive and well albeit in a slight state of dormancy and secondly a platform is to an online community as a town hall building is to real community. It is of lesser significance than the members, participants and population.
We love all our friends, artists and membe
