I’m on several cosplay networking sites, but there are some that I’m not on for a variety of reasons. People seem curious as to why I’ve yet to join them, and well, here they are!
One of the sites I’m not on is Cure. The reason? It’s complicated, to me, to work with. The translations over to English are somewhat sloppy, and I could never figure everything out. It’s one of the most used networking sites, but simply not for me.
Another site is relatively new and that is World Cosplay. It’s a pretty sloppy set-up in general and it has a daily “ranking” system that seems to almost encourage a stupid popularity contest on there. I won’t tolerate that. So, I’m not on there. I’m trying to discourage that silliness in the community, not help it along.
Other than that, I’m on a ton of other sites. Either they were one of the few things available (CosplayLab and Cosplay.com) or I’ve honestly developed a liking for the sites and continue to use them (American Cosplay Paradise). It just depends on how well they’re built and how they encourage the community with their actions.
