Fuck it...I'm done. Lock this thread please. Someone else can deal with this soap opera, I don't have the time anymore.
I cannot beleive that this is going to happen here. I am very sad to see this place go where it is heading. This thread has been a NG staple, providing quite a great deal to users. I know it has been difficult lately with everything that is going on, but this cannot be the last option at your disposal. I do greatly hope that you will reconsider what you are about to do.
Since I have started making sigs, I have always followed this thread. I do my regular rounds on the BBS and stop in here everytime to see what is going on. This club has provided me with a great deal of help along my time. I am not a member here, but have always been insipred by the works that you all produced. There are a handful of great people here with a talent that most do not posses.
I have always worked and strived to maybe be one day, part of the SSMR. I have stayed active in the ASM, and am even co-leader of the BSM. I love making sigs. There are users out there that are very grateful for the work that goes into the finished product. I know that the service you all provide is no easy task, especially with the way some people can get. All the same I really do not want to see anything happen here.
I know that right now I may not be at the level needed to be accepted into the SSMR, but if thread were to close there would never be a chance. There are a lot of artists here on NG that i think are in my same position. They have always wanted to be part of the SSMR. They are the ones that stay active, learn new things, and try their hardest to further their skills. This is the holy ground for sig makers and requester alike. It is very difficult to see it coming anywhere near the direction it is going.
I understand your reasons for bringing this club to the point it is at. As I said, I have followed this thread and what goes on here. It is plain to see that members are inactive and the requests only rise. What you said a few pages back about people gaining SSMR status and not coming around afterwards I know has to be hard. You think you are going to get help and then it all just falls away again. I also undertand that the requesters can be extremly taxing at times. No one has any patience, or they just ask for rubbish sigs. That is hard on sig makers and the thread alike.
I can imagine what you are thinking..."Who is this guy and why is he talking to me?" I just am sad to see this happen. If you think I am just disrupting things here I apologize. I did not come here to be an annoyance or a bother in any way. I am just concerned for this thread and some of it's members. I do hope you will take the time to hear me out though. I appreciate you talking the time to read what I had to say. I wish the best of luck to you and a slect few people here. I do hope to see you around NG, and very hopefuly here in the SSMR pending what happens. Thank you.
