No art discord is good because no art discord has what any art community needs to be good.
>No good artists in leadership
Face it, you're all /beg/ and not beginners, you're fucking beggars. You want all the info, all the attention, all the critique all to yourself. That's not gonna happen in a setting of equals made by another beggar. The place needs to be made and managed by people who are already good and want to bring others to their level.
Not only in the mods not being faggot trannies, but the discord itself being well divided in it's channels. One channel for asking crit, one channel for posting wips, one channel for posting finals, one channel for cringe, one channel for general socializing, etc. Don't have it like most of these losers dumping everything in a single place and then complaining because the shitposting beats the drawing every fucking time.
True no politics, not just no /pol/. Tell trannies and doomers to shut the fuck up. Nobody gives a shit about you and people would rather die than have sex with you IRL, why do you think it should be different online? Shut the fuck up and draw.
Make NSFW and furry channels and shove those abnormals there with a threat to shoot them on sight if they dare post their crap elsewhere.
And those are just the very basics of a discord that doesn't die in 12 weeks. You still need to cultivate a healthy community and make it grow at a pace where people don't get bored of seeing the same 2 fags dominate every conversation but there's not so much people that nobody ever gets seen.
