Actually kinda prefer threads to one big gallery

What the title says. While the new gallery system does allow people to get to the images right away, it takes away a certain individuality to the art, I think. With threads you know the artist, and you get excited when you see that artist's thread pop up with new content. The new gallery system just feels like it dosen't give the individual artists themselves attention. A newcomer could easily step In and assume all the pictures are done by the same person. I'd like it if the galleries could be sorted by artist rather then just showing the most recent images posted by anyone and everyone, that would feel a lot better. Or maybe just keep the threads for discussing artwork that's hosted in the gallery?

Wrong section. You should have posted it here.

These concerns are in the process ofl being addressed. Basically, your profile will soon take over the task of your thread. If you're familiar with DeviantArt or Hentai Foundry, that's kind of what we're working towards on a smaller scale. How many times have you had an artist's thread pop up and it was just two pages of comments on his old gifs? That's one of the problems we're tackling.

They would, if they didn't read the pretty hard to miss usernames below each pic.

For now, you can go to your favorite artist's profile and click the "search user's images" link. I'm working on a follower system that sends you notifications when someone you follow has posted something new.

I think that's a good thing. Rather than being ignored because no one knows who you are, all art can be viewed objectively. I think that's a very positive thing.

Out of curiosity, will there be any kind of option for sorting by Subjects? Sometimes I really just want to look at all the Futa stuff (which makes the Futa thread in sex poses awesome possum) but I don't get the impression this new system can model that. EDIT: Ah, whoops, I found the other thread, derpderp. Proposed tagging system sounds like it'll suite my fancies.
