Greetings,

There are a few things that need to be addressed. It would not be surprising if several members are upset and tired of this group. It is rarely updated, non-interactive, poorly monitored, and has gone off the path of dragon-oriented art/stories. The original promise of this group was to give content creators a fair chance to share and have their projects noticed by a larger audience with similar interests. It was a good place to start, and I believed there would be room for expansion and advancement over time. Unfortunately it seems that time has not come. This group has been around for a few years now. Yet there has been little expansion and change. Many of :icondraconic-artists:'s moderators have become preoccupied with personal issues. They cannot constantly watch over this little group as much as they would like to. I, myself, have been facing the same problem for about two years now. School has dominated my life schedule for a long while. I always put my education before anything else. This group does deserve more attention and love--for its members' sake. So let me explain a few ideas of mine.

One of the first lessons learned in Microeconomics is about scarce resources and opportunity cost. A scarce resource is anything that has value. It isn't free. This means nearly everything is a scarce resource in some way. Time is one of the biggest, yet most overlooked, scarce resources around. No one wants their time to be wasted. It has value because there are only so many hours in a day, days in a week, weeks in a month, months in a year, and years in a lifetime. Every second is precious. People want to get the most out of their time before it expires.

Opportunity cost is the cost of passing up one alternative for another. For example, think of choosing what to have for dinner. One may have the option of selecting either a take-home pizza, or a five-star restaurant meal. By selecting the restaurant meal the opportunity cost may be the difference between the money spent, and the money that could have been saved. Now think of the opportunity cost of the opposite choice. What does one lose by choosing the cheaper alternative? The answer is: the pleasure of sitting in and eating in a pleasant environment. That is to say opportunity cost is not always measured in money. In fact, many instances of opportunity cost are not currency-based.

What do these two things have to do with this group? Fundamentally, these two concepts have everything to do with Draconic-Artists. For one thing, interacting and uploading with/to the group takes away from one's greatest scarce resource: time. Secondly, choosing to submit art and be a part of this small community is an opportunity cost. The individual must decide what he or she is gaining, or losing, by being a member. By identifying these points, I believe it is easier to come up with ideas of how to make the group better. Draconic-Artists should save its members time during their interactions. It should also provide plentiful reasons to join--lower the opportunity cost.

So I implore YOU, what should we add/change?
