I say the mods declare martial law and permaban anyone who doesn't tow the party line. Speaking of I think the new mod uniforms are dandy, what with the epaulets and shiny boots.
Authoritarianism FTW!

I've had the opportunity, but never gone through with it. It was that, or a huge science project or animate a science class safety video
I chose neither and got a B

DON'T JUST DROP BACK INTO MY LIFE AND MAKE SUCH SLANDEROUS ACCUSATIONS.

On the subject of the Portal Patrol thread, the reason we asked you guys to stop constantly suggesting people who needed to be kicked from the portal is because it was getting out of hand.

It sort of got to the same point that it was in this forum not too long ago. You guys would post a slew of people you didn't think should be in the portal before we would even have a chance to take care of it ourselves. I know for myself, most of the time I would prune a lot of the people you would flag before I even looked at the thread. We know you are all eager to help out, but as far as artists who aren't up to par we can take care of that.

We're all pretty good at our jobs. If someone needs to be removed from the portal one of us will notice and take care of it. One of the other issue's is that you guys would also post people who really didn't need to get kicked and were fine for the portal. If someone's still in the portal, chances are we saw them and think they're fine.

I'm not opposed to posting in that thread if someone truly atrocious keeps getting overlooked, I'm talking for like a week here not a few hours, and hasn't been kicked yet.

The Art Portal Patrol was made to be a place to bring issues to our attention that can't be conveyed in the flagging system. Things like impersonations, if you think someones a thief but can't find proof, someone gets hacked, or any other kind of grey area that isn't in the flagging system. I do oppose the idea of letting you guys suggest things to go on FP, it's kind of our privilege and I can see it getting out of hand very quickly.

This also is not the place to complain about the art portal. If you have an issue with something going on in the portal PM a mod about it or something.

wasn't there a "no portal bitching" rule made awhile ago or something?

Don't know what orn and Ben are going to say, but:
- For reporting thieves and inappropriate stuff, report the pic, since we're guaranteed to look at it.
- For pointing out "shitty" artists, or discussing the legitimacy of a suspected thief, Portal Patrol, since it's a forum where people can concur or disagree.
since you can't report an artist you think is fundamentally rubbish

quoting is fun

I understand that Turkey brought up the discussion about the APP. You for complaining about the quality in the portal, that doesn't belong here.

Time to drop it, no more whining/bitching/wutevs

The lounge has become too bitchy and whiny. Everyone move on goddamit.

On a different note, I'm not wearing pants at the moment.

I'll just let that sink in.

Congratulations, Ben! We should throw you a party, welcome you to the tanks of the Super Happy Intellectuals.

Wait, what?

On other news, I changed my aura to Fab. It was meant to be symbolic, but since my IRL regulary check up on my account it'll be interesting to explain it away to them. It was funny enough denying the furry gallary I had favourited.

On the subject of front page suggestions.

1.Ben is a noob :P
2. I'm fine with people suggesting something in the portal patrol if they meet these conditions.
a. the artist has been scouted for a while.
b. the artist has no other work front paged.
c. the piece is not fan fiction
d. the piece is truly balls fucking awesome. not just mediocre

Now for an art related subject.

School has started for the little tykes of the art forum (or will be starting). Any cool art classes anyone taking?
