A quick announcement regarding Product Updates: going forward, we’re separating out Community Updates and Product Updates. Each week we’ll release a Community Update (#CommunityUpdate) with Artist Invite news, giveaways, and interviews. Product Updates (#ProductUpdate) will be published when we have new features and releases to tell you about. Both will still be posted from my account, so if you’re already following me you won’t miss anything.
We always appreciate your feedback and are always looking to evolve how we do things around here.
In this week’s Community Update, we’re announcing the selected artists for the Moonlight, Under Lucky Stars and Future Selves Artist Invites as well as some fresh giveaways.
