WELCOME:Creative Spark is a discussion community of forums for artists of every breed. All creative people are welcome to register for an account. We are still a relatively new site and only two people are running this thing through the love of art, spare time, loose change found in our couch cushions, and the few nice people that have decided to become contributing members. Thank you to our generous donors!
New members must be approved prior to fully registering for the purpose of catching spam. Once approved, anyone may post images, but we do ask that you first introduce yourself in the Welcome Center Forum. All members have the ability to start their own threads and post as many images and as much text as their heart desires, but please don't overdo it with the images. We don't have unlimited resources for buying bandwidth and space because you are image-crazy.
Like any online community, we expect basic etiquette and the forums will be moderated for general decorum. We are not fond of artistic censorship. However, this is not a place to debate politics, religion, moral standards, or your views on how society should operate according to your world view. Threads or posts made to provoke such infighting will be swiftly ended. Nazism, kooky conspiracy theories, or trolling of any kind will not be tolerated. We are also an LGBTQ+ friendly community.
Posting long quotes directly from other sites, such as Wikipedia is a no-no because it messes with Google algorithms and is dangerous in keeping the data from our site available in Google searches. If you start getting warnings for breaking rules, you can eventually be permanently banned from the forums. You could also be banned from the site without warning if you're a true-to-life troll with an ulterior agenda that is in direct conflict with the main goal of this site, which is ART! We also ask that you don’t come here for conspicuous self-promotion or post your own poetry in the Literature Forum, but do feel free to make your website and contact info known in your signature. We do encourage that.
If you have any suggestions for new sub-forums or any other feedback, please post it in the Site Announcements and Technical Discussions Forum where other important information is located and updated pretty regularly.
Your patience for any site glitches and bugs is much appreciated, and especially your participation. Please remember to have fun! We really are a friendly and encouraging bunch.
