I like it best when everything is organised in folders because I can always just click on the "All" button on the top left corner and it shows everything on the same page, as if it were just everything in the main gallery. Nice and simple :D

ahh, I see your point. I don't find that too problematic myself :P

I prefer when the gallery is organised in folders and have a copy of everything in the main gallery.

Why didn't you propose it?

Because sometimes in life, decisions need to be made.

I don't see you point.

Everyone would vote for that option then, I wanna see what people deem more important xD

I LOVE folders but it dries me crazy when they take everything out of featured. Honestly if they do that the chances of me using the folders are zero. I will hit browse and see everything just to spite them.

Same, I hate that too! Aghh people why you no let me see everything xD

Eh, I prefer a bit of a mix of those two options actually. I rarely ever look at the main gallery if an artist has folders, as I think it makes it easier to find something specific, like fanart or so.

I don't like it when they try to hide their old art, even if it's bad, everyone has been there. Hiding old drawings makes some people think they have been incredibly good at what they do and start talking about "talent" and whatnot.
Still, the artist does whatever they wish to do, of course!

There is also the "All"-button left if one really wishes to see anything. I think it's good option, although some page numbers would be nice... Oh, well.

Yea, I like to see everything too :XD: But oh well!

And the lack of pagenumbers in "all"... drives me insane really :P
Aquamarine-Franny's avatar
Heheh, yeah.
I see, it is quite annoying. I wonder why there aren't any actually? I mean, it's not that big of a deal, is it?

I wonder too, would it really be that difficult to add them? :P
Aquamarine-Franny's avatar
I don't know, but I think if they are in every other folder/main gallery, I think it wouldn't be all thàt hard..? :p

No, indeed. I think only Scrapbook doesn't have them either - but why... :XD:
Aquamarine-Franny's avatar
It's rather weird. x3 But guess we'll have to live with it.. >v<

Everything's cross-referenced into folders, the main gallery has all the things that the artist is proud of, and is void of all the smaller deviations.

I like it when I can't tell that everything's not out in the open, I can still scroll through the main page and see what the artist is about without having to click the "all" button, because I'm not bothered enough to actually look in any of the folders.

If I don't like what I see by a quick glance at the gallery, I move on. so you might as well hide all the junk but still make it look like you have it all together in the main gallery so I'm not tempted to click the "all" button and see all the bad stuff as well as the good ;o

Oh owo Well I don't know what in my gallery is bad or good exactly, opinions differ.
Purrlstar's avatar

well true, but I mean stuff in your gallery that YOU think is good is what should be displayed :3
