I have, for several years, operated an independent forum here >> [link]
This was originally set up for members of the Computer Arts magazine forum who became rather disillusioned by the bureaucracy & bias of the magazine (FYI - the old Computer Arts forum was very neglected over the past 2-3 years and has finally been deleted)
So, we set up Citizen Art.
I keep mean to mention this and offer an invitation to anyone who might like to join.
It's mainly aimed towards online creativity but all are welcome.
You can post work, get proper critique from your peers, ask questions, chat, whetever you like.
So, please take a look and hopefully sign up. The more the merrier : )
Please pass this on.
