Q4. What should we improve?
Q5. What should we change?

I have opened a chat room for our group here to discuss ideas or plans or even if anyone would like some real-time help. Send a note to the group 1st if it's needed then one of us may come in the >Chatroom<.

In case you want to see what we have updated for this group, go >here<



Simple Notes:

1. "Keep it simple, Stupid!" (K.I.S.S.)  Oh gosh. I still remember that advice from my English teacher. I miss him so much.
2. Be consistent.
3. Add sorted guidance.


Plans:

PLAN 1 - After-Tutorial:
:iconbronycoliny:
"maybe ... a thing where people show there art after a tutorial, and other things like that!"

PLAN 2 - Features:
:iconmythic-flame:
"...A deviant or their art is featured every week or month or something. That could go in the featured as well as a weekly journal like
Our Weekly deviant is Someone, with their tutorial (or picture, advice, awareness) ect. Then continue..."

PLAN 3 - Journal Features for Specific Subjects:
:icondivine-angel-heroine:
How about I making up a journal to feature tutorials. Most tutorials will be collected and organized into categories, all into one journal.
Some journals may be organized like small guidances for beginners.
Others will be journals organized to help with specific areas.
"Small tips" will be set aside within them.

Now for the basics to more advanced...
I have to figure out on which subject to start from the beginning... shapes? colors? vocabulary?

PLAN 4 - Tutorial Book Series/ Flash series:
:icondivine-angel-heroine:
Similar to PLAN 4. Organize it with pages. Add an index. Make the cover.
Seems like from what i've seen there are some deviants out there that are not able to view flash so it might not be in flash.

PLAN 5 - Fan Tutorials:
"Of course there are other big subjects it seems... like most of the disney works.......  and even DragonBallZ and Kingdom Hearts...make a seperator indicating "Fanmade Tutorials?"

PLAN 6 - Critiques:
:iconsilenceflying: [S]
"...somewhere we can put work so that people will critique us even if we don't have the critique thingy on.
You could put a limit on it, like only one submission per person per fortnight or month ... you ask people to only submit once they have critiqued someone else's.
... people would remove their deviations from the folder after receiving 3 critiques from the group,
(put the group icon at the bottom of the critique so that it is easy to tell then everyone one would know who needs critiquing.)
(but obviously it would be better to critique people within your area of expertise so that you can offer constructive advice/criticism...)"


Ideas/Suggestions:

This is where you may post your ideas and suggestions for this group.  If the idea is accepted by the Founder, it may be put into action.  Any/All ideas EVEN QUESTIONS are welcome.
Please number your ideas/suggestions. For example:

"IDEA 1 - Gallery Repairs:
blah, blah, blah"

Idea/Suggestion 1: Poll-ish:
:icondivine-angel-heroine:
How about we ask the other members/deviants how 'these ideas/suggestions' should go?
Post a journal and list some ideas/suggestions by numbers to 'vote'
Then let the 'voters'(The members of this group or some other deviants) comment the plan/idea/suggestion - that is specified by the number beside them- and then count how many overall 'votes' for the number that is beside the plan/idea.suggestion.  (Seems complicated but it's simple really.)

Idea/Suggestion 2 - Additions:
:iconmenaria: [S]
"Add tutorials of creating Steam workshop-compatible models in Blender."
Each kind of software should have its separated folder.
For example diginal drawing, traditional drawing, crafting, modeling, 3d modeling etc
Make a separated folder for mlp since that's a big subject"

Idea/Suggestion 3 - Gallery Fix-Up:
:iconmenaria: [S]
"...gallery of folders require rework. It should have very specific categories, but 10 folders max. people don't like to scroll trough them and wonder wether their posing tutorial should go into anatomy or  character design (those are just examples)."
:icondivine-angel-heroine: answered: [S]
"...there is a sorting folder saying "Submit here" if one doesn't really know where to submit."

Now it's called "SUBMIT HERE FOR SORTING"


Idea/Suggestion 4 - Helpful Member Promotion/Reward/:
:icondivine-angel-heroine:
Whenever a member of our group contributes to our group we help them gain more recognition as a thank-you for helping us.
Make up badges for those who are helpful in the group. "trophies"


Discussions:

Thought 1 - Nomming Gallery XD :
:icondivine-angel-heroine: [S]
"... "But what if they want to look at a specific program/tutorial field and because of so many of the other tutorials in the folder that relates to a huge topic they just have to keep searching in the folders."
:iconmenaria: answered [S]:
"I know from my own experience that people rarely browse trough those galleries. Mostly they care for submitting and if there's something specific they're looking for, they either search for it via DA browser.
Also even if number of folders would be limited, I don't think anybody's gonna complain to search just a few pages of them."

Thought 2 - Unorganized Gallery:
:iconrobnroll:
"The tutorial directory you build is a bit too general for drawing improvement and offers too many distractions for someone whos just meant to sit down and practice."
:icondivine-angel-heroine: replied:
Welp! Now, I must zoom into the gallery and fix stuff it's still a work in progress

Thought 3 - Simple or Specific?:
:icondivine-angel-heroine:
.... Ok some people may want 'it' simple.... others want 'it' specific.....  um... what are we going to do here??
:iconmythic-flame: answered:
"Simple, a little of everything not specific. I was thinking more Tips so Tablet tips, photoshop/gimp/ect Even traditional art not just digital"
We have a new staff member!

:icondivine-angel-heroine:

she's already done great for the group! editing, customising, and giving the group new ideas. go watch, follow or join her groups :D

Thanks ~
