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.
