Green butt of reason
Now I see where you're coming with that. I'll agree with the "pervy" part, I think it can be fixed by adding some additional filters - there is a SFW one, but it doesn't cover many relatively tame fetishes (like paw fetish or vore), so we still end up with stuff like this on a frontpage. And as for cleaning the artwork out - welp, unlike Steam, there's no market to speak off, and in case with artwork, you can separate good from bad by merely looking at it, without any need to click additional links to see what is it about. And after all, those crappy artists, they're just learning stuff, and in majority of cases they eventually become good ones - just let them hang around with their crappy drawings, they'll get good sooner or later And by "filtering" their artwork, we may eventually fall into the same trap as FurNation - novice artists will be basically "bullied" off the site, and we'll get a huge gap between skilled and unskilled ones, something that can discourage many aspiring beginners from joining FA in the first place.Ah, indeed, a tough problem. In a sense, I believe that no art should be stigmatized or filtered out, but it's not easy to plow through feces in order to find a good amateur image. Steam is currently having issues with shitty games, where the shop is being utterly drowned in dumb projects made by teens and trolls for an easy buck. There HAS to be some sort of filter, at least for the main pages. Maybe we'll never find a consensus, thus why it'll never happen, but I'm not opposed to the idea of cleaning out what's clearly a low effort piece.
Shenanimation is creative. It's not about the style itself, but the slick linework, an interesting design and, perhaps, even humorous content! I've seen loads of small comic flicks that were VERY simplistic, yet meaningful and insightful to some degree. Sometimes just plain funny! So yeah. Incredibly tough question. We might just let it slide for the time being xD
