Why?

Maybe I missed something but who declared Elfwood to be sole platform for showing art? I see so many comments from people on the Elfwood livejournals which pretty much amount to them wanting to put all their art on Elfwood, and when they can't, they whine that the rules are unfair and should be changed so that they can stick anything they like up there.

I paint things other than fantasy art. That art doesn't fit the Elfwood rules, so I don't submit it there. I can't see why some people don't want to do the same. It's as if their whole art lives revolve around Elfwood.

Someone complained that he would have to spend many hours working on a painting he's not really interested in just to keep his quota of clear fantasy up. Why would anyone do that? Would it not make more sense to just wait until you create something you really want to, that also fits in with the Elfwood rules, and then submit that? I really don't udnerstand this kind of mentality.

I've also seen comments in people's journals like "It's not really a fantasy picture (and wasn't meant to be) but I want to post it on Elfwood so I'll just add some pointy ears". Why is it so important to some people to have everything up on Elfwood? Maybe everyone else is getting huge publishing deals from there and I just got left out. *sigh*

Oh man didn't you know? They just don't feel "at home" on Deviantart. Sheezyart is just a sad copy of Deviantart. And Epilogue, Eat Poo, and GFX are full of "elitists" (aka, people who are better artists). It's not that they don't want to actually put forth EFFORT to get used to more than one art gallery environment, it's that THE WHOLE INTERNET IS AGAINST THEM AND THEIR ONLY HAVEN IS ELFWOOD.

At elfwood no one admits that their art is shit! (except the trolls but we can ignore them because they're TROLLS even if they're right!)
At elfwood people understand that GAY LOVE IS OKAY AS LONG AS IT SPARKLES!
At elfwood nobody is allowed to be mean to them (or they get BELETED)!
At elfwood nobody tells them that incompetence is not a style!
At elfwood they are free from that nasty pressure to improve!
At elfwood "competition" is a dirty word!
At elfwood, the pointy ears have YOU!

Eat poo? O_o
The eat poo forums.

They are good but they scare the n00bs who are used to the refrigerator door treatment for their scribbles of ponies.
