Half of you guys are going to want my head on a plate at the very mention of the C-word, but I want to see if we could have some decent ideas planned like last year:

What are we going to do as a Christmas art forum activity?

How about a Secret Sexy Santa?


A rather disgusting-looking git that should have been disposed of ages ago.

The answer is no. I did have the "red" version removed from some wallpaper site a while ago but I see it's still around to haunt me in a shitty add!

Not much I can do about it though...

PS: I've stopped drawing in the last year and I'm focusing on photography. But I'll be back I promise!

Well comeback soon. We miss you. No honestly, I lay awake at nights sobbing until the day you come back.

sigh, looks like another long tear soaked night for me...

Anyway in more cheerful news, I got a part time Graphics Design position! Its mostly type setting actually, and its an old style of screen printing, but its still a design position. It makes me so happy!

I hope this looks as good on a resume as it does in my head.

Also I have to do a bunch of other things around the shop, but still
Foot in the door baby

So hurry back schlippe and so we can enjoy my happyness together :P

On an unrelated topic is it against the rules or frowned upon to horde art and then upload it all in one day to monopolize the new art page? 8V

Awesome Kinsei, this was essentially my main tasks at my first graphic design job, then it grew and such and it does look good on your resume (when you live in a graphic needy city like LA) so I was able to freelance with former customers and even find other better paying graphic design positions! Just don't grow to hate graphic design like I did.

I think that tactic would harm your overall views and stats more then help them; unless the pictures, or at least their thumbnails, were impressive and varied enough, users (or at least myself) would simply click on the first of note and ignore the rest, so you'd really just be competing against yourself. Being compared relative to the quality of your next piece, instead of another art portal entree.

To be fair though, occupying more space on the front page seems like a good idea at first, and maintaining a constant presence on the portal is an excellent practice for being noticed, but I don't see it working out.

There's a 4-uploads a day limit on the portal, anyway.

so to whoever deleted johnny's responces to Hiruy... why? He pointed out the obvious and hiryu's getting away with too much, and if someone points out how ridiculous some of his statetemts are their posts get deleted... then the next person does and their posts get deleted... if someone wants to delete my post too and then pm why that would be great too as long as i get why this is going on.

its simple.
Hiryu is a whiny bitch.
if someone doesn't give him a good handjob every time they post to him, Hiryu goes off on a pissy rant and rampage disrupting the entire Forum.
thus its easier for us to delete our post, which we really don't care about, than to listen to his temper tantrums.
I really hate Hiryu, but this works. and everyone goes on about their lives happy, sort of.

I was really hoping he'd get bored by now and leave, but he hasn't. So far this has been his longest stent with us. He must be going for a new personal best.

Well apparently responding to hiryu and pointing out his blatant hypocrisy can warrant a ban for derailing a thread and "personal attacks" against him (I mean, ffs look at the recent threads in the art forum, nothing but him spamming his so called "critiques" that contribute to nothing.)

Escalus, the way to deal with all life problems that include another individual is through positive reinforcement and negative punishment. If he posts something of value you should give it credit like any other user, if he posts garbage than ignore it. Positive punishment i.e. harping on him, doesn't solve anything, and in actuality insults the OP even more-so than it does to Hiryu.

In one thread I actually requested a mod to delete the posts between and Johnny and Hiryu because it didn't focus on the topic at hand, which in that specific case was a wizard design for an Ipad platformer.

The one thing I wanted him to learn was civility on NG, manners are easy to learn.

I mean I've been around a while, and from what I've seen on the BBS is that you can only merge into a few specific forums. For me I've leaned towards the Art/Animation/Video Game/Politics/General(of course). I don't post much, but I know the users that do post. I can understand the tone and level of common understanding of rules and regulations.

Hiryu lacks understanding of what is acceptable to post and treats this place like DA where shallow posts are common place. I'm not making NG out to be the epitome of professionalism, but I think Tom/Wade intended this site to be pedigree higher than DA.

Now if you will excuse me, I have a scientific research paper on Chronic Mercury Poisoning to fix up.

Yes, but Hiryu was talking out of his ass and he was giving advise he himself refuses to take... Johny only pointed it out... Like in most of the treads he posts! If the mods are gonna remove johnny's post why not hiryu's bs

Seriously if you're gonna let the annoying kid in the courtyard be annoying without slapping him every once in a while how's he gonna learn? By ignoring him? We tried that with his own thread and he kept bumping it begging for attention until he got it. This technique works with normal people, not him

We've slapped him around here three times. The other technique doesn't work either. I'm in far more support of our latest try; it's failed a lot less than the last three so far.

Losing patience with him is just waking up on the morning of motherfucking groundhog day.


I have nothing to say that is at all relevant.
