I used to get up in the mornings and go through my inbox to see all the artwork that people have submitted, pretty much as part of my daily routine. I watch 611 people here on DA, and my inbox is rarely filled beyond a couple pages. And I watch both galleries and scraps. Even the journals seem to be fewer and far between.
If there was any sign that people don't stick around here much.... that might be it. It's bumming me out, guys.
