Dear Hannah et al.,
Although I have not uploaded to the galleries, you may be missing the human dimension in your decision to delete them. They are one of the reasons I bought the program and have an interest in using it. Sometimes, when a company tries to be super-slick, they lose the specialness of their connection with the user community. Some of the displayed artwork doesn't show the potential of the software, but that's not the point. Even I, as a beginner, can tell, and factor it out. Lose that, and you knock out one support leg that keeps a segment of your community energized.

In the U.S., we have a country expression, "down-home", a kind of open accessibility. Calculations of professional marketers and designers won't explain the costs of separating yourselves even a little from the user community.
