We Suck Less and the Pirates of ConFusion are joining forces!

Let's end 2018 with a bang!



Today marks the day that the Pirates of Confusion and We Suck Less would like to announce that we are joining forces.


I was going to do a press-release style post for this, but ultimately felt that is not the right style. This is not a corporate message, this is about the coming together of like-minded people with something in common. We want to make art, explore, learn, share and have a good time doing it. And if we can make a living by doing so, then heck, without a doubt we are doing something right!

It just so happens that we share a love for a terrific application at the heart of this - Fusion. Which is how and where our communities meet.

Vito LaManna is a HUGE talent with a big heart, who has spared effort nor expense to share what he knows, and to help others along in their desire to become great artists. I'd like to think of myself in the same way, though I'd let others be the judge of my talents :)

The way Vito manages to inspire others with his unique style and tremendous quality of work is beyond reproach. It is as powerful and exciting as it is contagious. I'm a big fan of Vito and truly honoured to call myself his friend in arms. Yet strangely enough we haven't interacted all that much over the years. For the longest time, our separate thriving communities have been sailing side by side yet not together. Now that is just silly.

Today this changes.

What this means is that from now on we will actively exchange our thoughts and dreams. Share ideas, content, road maps, tools, tips and tricks and build our common goal together. We intend to grow one of the greatest, most creative and inclusive communities online!

Let’s be honest, Fusion is a highly technical application which is still not very accessible to the pure artist. It is our mutual desire to bring the highly technical and the highly artistic closer together.

But what does that mean, practically? We'll keep each other posted, quite literally. So for starters we're building a bridge.

Introducing Suck Less Bot, our Discord messenger


Image

Effective immediately, The Pirates of Confusion Discord server is a new channel richer. It will keep all those Pirates aware of any WSL activity, in real time.

On WSL we will see more art showcases, more questions, more techniques, more sharing, more pirates! We will see more tools being submitted to Reactor. No doubt the Wish List and Bug Tracker may see some increased activity as well. You will see more of @Captain LeBuck over here and more of @SecondMan over there.

Both real-time chat platforms and persistent forums have their strengths. The same goes for the people using them. Unite them, and great things will happen. There is only one Fusion community and boy is it growing fast.

Here is a permanent invite link for the PoC Discord server: https://discord.gg/qmkjbbV

Bring on 2019! Together we shall sail the seven seas, plundering all kinds of booty!!!!

Hey Vito!
(And fo course Pieter)
Great news guys! Really great news!
Let's sail this ship together to infinity and beyond.
(Or at least close to there, since as I believe Infinity is already taken by Chuck Norris)

How appropriate that I'm finishing up (hopefully) a screenplay about pirates today!
