To be real, though - PokeCommunity is a huge forum, with areas that cover pretty much everything in life. You would be hard-pressed to find a club that doesn't steal activity from another forum in some way. The more common victims are Culture & Media and Japanese Entertainment, because the focuses of those forums are where a lot of fandoms come from, but ultimately that shouldn't matter because clubs have a very different energy than a regular discussion thread - they are generally a more cohesive and inherently positive environment, and I believe that's why the clubs deserve to exist.

I forgot the point I was trying to make with this.... oh right! The fact that a club might take activity from another section isn't necessarily a reason for it not to exist. Clubs and discussion sections are two very different things, and if a person has enough passion for the subject at hand then I see no reason why they shouldn't be able to post in both.

So personally, I don't see the problem with an artist's club. It goes well with the musician's corner and the fitness club. I do question how much activity it would get, but I guess that's something you can only know for sure by trying it out. As for a deviantArt club, I tend to agree with CWP there - so maybe just lump that in with the art/artist club and do it all as one?

droomph, my point about activity-stealing above applies to the Japanese language club as well, but if you're worried about that, I don't think you need to be. I just had a quick look in the club and from what I've seen, all the threads except for one are about various anime series, and not so much about the culture itself.

In any case, I've always been a sort of 'you don't know until you try' sort of person, so that's what I recommend you do. That's just my opinion though, the others are bringing up valid points as well
