If you get a few coins to spare.
You would get my deepest thanks by doing so.
So on the 09/17, as I was about to answer to one of Ziyane’s comments on Teranen’s journal promoting her Discord Server, Deviant Art refused for me to post the answer, noticing me I was now blocked by Teranen. (so Letty and Ziyane, no, I am not a stalker.)
And I was okay with that, because I left several toxic comments on this same journal.
So, instead of making any toxic comment on my own journal, I said, ok, I was banned for being a dick on the journal several time updated promoting a Discord Server “where you have to be active, otherwise I kick you out”, let's try it first hand to see the real deal.
So I logged into it, incognito, and stayed for a whole week. Verdict? 3 out of 5.
People into this discord are nice ones, I made them laugh easily, acting like a game addict with the bot’s fonction “slots machines”, wasting all the virtual money every time I could. And I can tell, nearly every days, someone joined the server. I didn’t check if they were all active, but at least, at least, every time I said “howdy” or “heya”, someone was there to answer my call. And it was nice.
But, there is a little “bug” into this Discord’s server, well, at least for me, but maybe, since I am a frenchy, my timezone and my time online on it were maybe the causes of this so said bug. Teranen’s time of presence was chaotic. But once again, maybe that, since I wasn’t always watching the Discord, I barely noticed the time she was online.
Teranen, if you may allow me to give you my ideas, here they come.
First, do not kick people because they are the shy silent ones. These people are you watchers, a.k.a the stalkers as you like to call us, they like your arts, and they like you, they come on the Discord because you gave them the opportunity, but, removing them because they are silent, is maybe the rudest behavior an artist can have. You have to accept them for who they are, as they love you for what you do.
Secondly, do not say “be active please”. It is counter productive for the purpose of your Discord. Say something nice and/or silly, something like “Hey, if you see me, at least say hello, I didn’t bite anyone ….yet.” Shy newcomers need to warm up on the place, if they don’t speak at all, maybe it is your duty, to say hello to them, make them feel welcomed. Believe it or not, I was the shy type when I was a teen, a friend of mine helped me to be more confident of myself. He wasn’t aware he unleashed the beast I am now most of the time.
You are the Sun of your Discord Server, it may sounds silly, but you have to work for the community to be what you hope it will be. You can’t just sit there and expect for every watchers you have to be all kind of talkative people.
I hope this review will help you. As I said, you blocked me, and I am fine with that. I don’t expect any answers or any second chance. I don’t want any. Have a nice day Teranen , and you too, artii. And all of the people I talked to into the Discord Server.
