Re: Effective Immediately

So sorry to hear this and hope you would reconsider, but also understand your current feelings! I am sure no one will do as good of a job as you did. Please do not think that all you have done in the past has gone unappreciated! Thank you and you will certainly be missed in your current role.

Re: Effective Immediately

Thank you, Ivy, for all the hard work and long hours.
Hope you'll be around to smooth the transition to whatever! The reference library is a terrific resource built by this community for all of us, and greatly treasured. (When I'm feeling better myself, I have to look up more cows...)

Re: Effective Immediately

Ivy,
I'd like to echo Cathy here and say that I hope you'll reconsider. You've worked so hard on the library and you'll be badly missed. Even by people like me, who rarely post in this forum or the library. You're one of the people on WC whom everyone knows, regardless of which forum they frequent. It won't be the same without you.
Kate.

Re: Effective Immediately

Ivy, One of the greatest things about WetCanvas is the reference library, and that is primarily due to *your* hard work. Please don't go! You will be missed more than you know.

Re: Effective Immediately

Dear Ivy

I will miss you.

You were probably the hardest working W/C member & contributed so much to the cause.

I saw the writing on the wall a few months ago & I had the 'sticky' removed from the thread where I asked members to support W/C "There's something in my Profile". Of course, I believed all that nonsense about it being a free-site for the benefit of artists.

I hope that the new owner didn't spend a bundle for it.

The best to you, your hubby & your Mom

Frank

ps: Is there any way I could have the photos I had posted here deleted?

Re: Effective Immediately

I am truly sorry to see Ivy go. Her contributions to the community were fantastic and she will be sorely missed. She created a truly useful tool for thousands of artists. Should she ever decide to continue to lead the RIL, we would all be happy to welcome her back.

To address the concerns raised here, I understand there is natural anxiety over Scott's departure, and I want to make clear that I will not change the vision of the Reference Image Library, and of course, it will always be free. In fact, I would like to make the RIL an even more important part of the site.

I would like to assure everyone that there will never be payment associated with joining WC! or doing anything you can do at WC!, like post, read great content, viewing any of the reference images, etc. There will only be more free content and tools as the months and years go by.

I view my job as a commitment to members, guides, and moderators to provide great tools and content on WC!, and I will do that and not charge for it ever.

I would also like to express my gratitude for all the hard work of the library team in keeping the Reference Image Library and the entire WC! site constantly improving.

It is my hope that this thread will reflect how much we appreciate Ivy and all of her many contributions to WC!

Sincerely,
Kerri

Re: Effective Immediately

Hi Ivy,

Sorry to see you resign as Image Librarian, what you have done with this terrific resource is one of the things that make Wet Canvas a wonderful place for artists.

I have made use of the IL often in the last few years and I know how much hard work you did to make it the wonderful resource it is. Thank you for your efforts, they are appreciated.

Kerri, Thanks for reiterating your committment to keeping Wet Canvas the premier web site for artists to visit. The Image Library is definitely one of its best assets, along with the artists.

Sylvia

Ivy, I don't know all the details concerning your situation but I for one hope you remain active in Wetcanvas. Your sunny personality as well as your contributions to the Library have made this a much friendlier place.

Re: Effective Immediately

Knowing nothing of the situation that prompted your resignation, Ivy,
all I can say is I among many am so very sorry that whatever occured
was so insurmountable that you felt it necessary to resign. As you can
see here, you are very much loved, very much appreciated, and will be
most sorely missed... Even relinquishing the RIL, I hope you will stay
on as a member of WC! and stay in touch with your friends, among
whom I count myself.....
