I'm back with a few things to report. Currently the group is almost abandoned, and I'm really out of ideas on how to recruit new members, if not new designs. This year I have been extremely busy with my studies, plus I was sick for the second half of the year, so I was absent for this whole year.
The main problem seems to be that most members and watchers are inactive. I did a bit of research, and found that actually 90% of the members on DA are ЯOM's (Яead Only Memebers). They can't draw, they just join/watch the group just to look at the art. Unlike Pixiv, which doesn't have the group feature, the circle is actually quite closely knitted.
Das ist alle! See you in 2012!
