In creative content there are not enough categories. I’m tired of seeing people putting things like clay creations, gundams, photography, photo edits, 3D models, and mask modifications in the ARTWORK category. I think we should have a misc category for things like this. the only one of these I think deserves its own category is photography.
I feel like if it were to change it would be better to create more specific categories, rather than just lumping everything that isn’t a drawing or digital painting into a misc category.
Anything that isn’t part of the large groups should just go in “Creative Content”, no subgenre.
yeah, i guess so.
Yeah, ‘Creative Content’ without another tag is pretty much that catch all. That being said, I do think they should add a subtopic for ‘Photography’, though I can see how some people could get it confused with ‘Lego Creations’.
I mean, to clarify, those things are still artwork. They are works of art.
That being said, it might not be a terrible idea to have some new Creative Content sub-tags, but it might just not be something the cast is willing to do.
Like @Hawkflight said, those things can be posted into the general CC category. The only reason the other categories exist is because there are a lot of people posting that kind of stuff. Of course, this is primarily a LEGO-focused message board, so having a “Gundam” subcategory or a “Sculpture” subcategory, or even a “Photography” subcategory might not be on-brand.
They’re also quite a small percentage of daily posts. A vast, vast majority of CC posts are MOCs or drawings/paintings, so having a sub-category just for those more niche things would be a bit of a time-waster. The point of the sub-categories is to filter and make finding those specific types of content easier, and there just isn’t enough of it compared to everything else to justify putting time towards it.
