Your pal
Houston, we have a problem!

Many new Creative Spark users seem to be under the impression that Creative Spark was set up to act as a kind of Wet Canvas Part II, and I'd like to take this opportunity to blow up that notion.

In many ways, Creative Spark is the anti-Wet Canvas. It was created to be the opposite of a corporate-run forum. It was created to be open, modern, and creative, hence the name.

Consequently, all the inside references and acronyms used at Wet Canvas are not appropriate here. If you're not sure what that means, I've provided this brief, helpful checklist:
  • You don't need to introduce yourself as being "from" Wet Canvas. Or "WC."
  • Do not use jargon or acronyms that only members of Wet Canvas would understand. That means if someone unfamiliar with Wet Canvas wouldn't understand something you're about to say, please don't say it.
  • Don't ask us for changes to make Creative Spark more like Wet Canvas.
If this seems petty, you may be missing the point. We've tried in more friendly ways to point out that this is not Wet Canvas redux, but some people believe they can recreate it here. That's not why we're here. This is our house, so if we ask you to put a coaster under your drink, perhaps you could find it in your heart to show us that common courtesy.

It's nothing personal; we're just not here to rebuild what you might be used to. Who knows, you might enjoy this even more.
