To anyone who has yet to figure out
Arts and music is being removed. If you are like me then this is very very saddening news, And I am asking you to help me save the collabs.
I already gave my argument here -http://www.kongregate.com/forums/1-kongregate/topics/312756-changes-to-the-collabs-section?page=3#posts-6613554
thats the official thread where they informed everyone
please help me show them that the users of Kongregate wish to keep the collabs.
or at least put your word in, Give it a moment of your time. That is all that is needed.
Im hoping with the community backing the collabs up that they can stay. Kongregate probably has one of the best art and music boards around, its effective, its easy, and its clean compared to other places such as deviant art. I chose to post on Kongregate because of those. and im sure others do to. So please. Help me save The collabs
~or if your okay with the change, say it. That is still better then letting this go by unheard

I really don’t want the collabs to die off. I would much rather see them left alone, the format is clean and easy to navigate. No reason for any changes..

exactly. I dont see why they think it needs to go.

If the collabs are removed, kongregate will inevitably lose money. If not from the missing ad revenue, then from the hundreds of games that will subsequently never be made. So, in a sense, removing the collabs is very unwise from a business standpoint.

Moreover, the collabs were my favorite part of kongregate. I daresay the collabs were a big part of my life. Nowhere else have I found such a pleasant community of creative people. I am deeply saddened that the collabs are being removed. Though, after the merger, I’ve gotten used to the feeling.

I honestly checked kong DAILY jut to check out the collabs.. I don’t want to have to attempt to find another community like the one from our collabs..

Same, the one here is unique.. the new art section moves slower. Gives a chance for people to actually see you’re art/music. People are nice and helpful as well (most some anyway) which is hard to come by on the internet.

I actually had this funny idea of making a game called ‘the collabs section’, that would emulate the functionality of the collabs. That’s the only way I can see to appease kongregate’s greedy outlook on things, seeing as they’d get plenty of money from it and they wouldn’t need to clog their server space with thousands of songs. Meh, I dunno…

I’ll give it some thought =]

That actually sounds like it would help. Ive seen games like that before.. played em and found out cool things i would have never known..

At least Kongregate gave us all a month warning before actually removing the Arts & Sounds. I appreciate them doing that, and think they’re awesome for showing consideration.

Why are they removing them? The current setup is fine…..no one has complained about it.

The arts forum would not be a good replacement.. It would leave you going into art forums blind and most people work could get skipped over because of that
