Part of the fun of running a website like MetrobayComix.com
is the feedback we receive from members and guests alike. Whether it's here at DeviantART, on our messageboard, on social media, or anywhere else, it truly is a privilege to get to interact with people who enjoy our work.
I must admit that we're very lucky. The vast majority of the feedback we receive is positive, and even when someone has some criticism for us it is typically offered in a very enthusiastic and constructive manner. That isn't always the case elsewhere. I'm sure each of you has seen how ugly it can get in the comments section of just about any mass media website, whether the topic is sports, comics, movies, gaming, news, television, or anything else. There are a lot of people out there who are just miserable SOBs, and they seemingly live to make others as grumpy as they are. We at Metrobay Comix are fortunate that none of that negativity has infected our site, and we thank everyone who interacts with us for keeping things civil and upbeat at all times.
That said, I got to wondering the other day - What do you think is the best way for us to interact with our readers? Obviously I picked DA to host this blog for a reason. I have more followers here than any other social media portal. But what about other options? We have our own messageboard, which you can visit by clicking here
. We have Tumblr
, and Twitter
accounts, which all have different strengths and serve different purposes. For example, we can't show nudity or sex on Facebook, but Tumblr doesn't have nearly as robust of a messaging system. Also, Facebook typically requires a person to use their real name, which may be a problem if they have to associate their account with our decidedly 'adult' oriented content.
So which form of interaction do you think we should concentrate on? I mean, we'll probably keep them all active and post to each regularly, but which of these outlets do you think you would prefer to get Metrobay Comix content on?
