Allow different types of writer and artist submissions

Rather than lumping all writers into one category there should be a way to submit different types of writings. Such as story (which already exists), poem, song/lyrics, and any other types of writing. The same thing should be done with artists. Having different types of artist submissions without having to filter through the tags to find different types, such as digital, traditional, sculptor, painter, and sewers (plushie makers, kigu/costume makers, and the likes).

Maybe tag system may help us here.

Search writings, #poem?

But I can see how categorization may be benefical as well.

The tag system is definitely beneficial for this as well, but not every artist or writer will use those tags. Those individuals may not pop up under those tags and could be lost in the fresh and popular feeds. It could also be more helpful for those looking for those specific types of art than using tags.

This feature is by no means a necessary addition. It'd just be nice. :P


For now, we're going to pass on this idea - tags should be enough to help people search for the types of writing they like. If there's sufficient demand for this in the future, though, we'd be happy to look into it.
