Re: ******WC Back-up sites******

Thanks for all the info, was shocked to find out this week about the impending bankruptcy. I have joined painting friends, thanks Kay, and watercolor workshops, thanks York’s, also a member of the wetcanvas FB group.
WC has been my family for so many years, I need to keep in touch with my long time friends

Well, I received a message from the F+W administrator to say that the firm is not closing down so wetcanvas is going to continue.

Re: ******WC Back-up sites******

I just went to the facebook site started by Doug (Yorky). I know nothing of Fb, but see no way (I didn't sign up) to easily learn anything of WetCanvas there, due to the the pictures, I suppose..How will we know about WC there?

Re: ******WC Back-up sites******

ntl, the Facebook site was just a way to communicate if wetcanvas went down. If there is an outage I will post a message to say so and another when it comes back up.

Re: ******WC Back-up sites******

Painting Friends admins contacted me and say thanks for the extra members. It is so small and there are not many that paint that much. Those who join and can navigate the site will see some forums/categories have not been used in years.

If the time should come, I can assure you that I would contribute to the cost of running the site.

That news could be interpreted multiple ways. From a business perspective it sounds like their core business isn't shutting down. If so, that makes perfect sense, but WetCanvas hardly brings them (if at all) revenue, so in their minds ... since they never did utilize the potential audience here .... the forums would be an unnecessary expense. The forums SHOULD, if they aren't going to capitalize on the audience here, be sold or ditched altogether. The forums going 'til June, as another poster said was relayed by Deborah Secor, isn't really anything other than time for members to say their good byes to one another.

.... someone has to be glass half-empty, I'll take one for the team.

Re: ******WC Back-up sites******

I had been thinking the exact same thing Kristy.... Whether to give members time to say goodbye, or more likely, just part of whatever process is happening behind the scenes.

Re: ******WC Back-up sites******

Would it be appropriate for any of us to contact the large art supply places - starting with Blick as they've been so supportive over the years - to lobby them for purchasing the site when/if the time comes? This would be only if it didn't become part of a larger purchase of all the company's assets.

Would enough letters influence their thinking about a purchase?
