It's incredibly easy to do all of the things you're listing without being a gigantic ass about it.
You can't expect people to know everything, especially considering the majority of people coming in here for requests are kids with no scratch, and people who just want to do a project and seeing if there's any mutual interest.

Yelling toxic bullshit from your high horse is only going to make you and the community look like assholes, the person looking for freebies ain't gonna retain any shit they had thrown at them, they're just gonna go somewhere else and ask there.

Pretty much, do things out of the kindness of your heart to help someone out, or not.

I mean if they're going to be dicks in the original post than it can be pretty funny to derail, but if it's someone who doesn't know how to pay and has a simple idea then just do it (I mean I think that's usually the case, I don't even no how to transfer funds electronically yet myself. Isn't it through paypal accounts?)

If they're not being a dick about it, don't be a dick to them.

Gif's are perfectly acceptable in the art portal, as long as it's not massive, it probably doesn't need to be resized.

No. No no no no no.
If somebody's doing something wrong, or their request is absurd, then they should be told that it's daft. Otherwise they'll keep making the same mistakes.
Also the sad fact is that if you act out of the kindness of your heart, then people will keep on taking advantage of your generosity.

I do agree with Vero that responding with an acidic response will make you and the community look like shits, and they'll just piss off and ask elsewhere.

I'm with Orn on this one. How in the world did all of you fall under the assumption that doing something for exposure is worth less than commission. Really? You are all surely users of not only the internet but more importantly Newgrounds. You should all know what can come from a playful venture paid or unpaid. Do you think little Tom was being paid by someone to make Pico? Where the fuck is the humble merit of independence that places like this are suppose to be renowned for?

In my opinion substantial exposure is worth ten times more than the few petty dollars you are going to receive from drawing some kid's Sonic "OP". I met good old Koroboy because he drew shit for me. FOR FREE! And to be blunt that guy can carry more weight with markers and paper than half of the people here can handle with photoshop or illustrator. I was a fan of his comic long before he came along and offered a gesture as humble as drawing some dumb character he found interesting.

And by all means, you don't have to be the mother fucking santa of art. If the proposal looks unappetizing to you then just stay the away and keep your mouth shut. Unless any rules are directly being broken or the user is being an utter cunt about their request. Even in that case then let the thread wither and die rather than bumping it up with your smart remarks. If it escalates past that then contact a mod, it's easy. And by god if you are going to be an elitist dick at least be tasteful about it.

It's so difficult doing a chore as easy as typing out text and making it look pretty, but when the occasion comes to troll hiryuGouki's Pokemon thread everyone is in the spirit to draw stuff for free. So just..stop. Please? Not drawing perverted Pokemon of course, I mean stop being elitist dicks. Kay.

Things need to be addressed on a case by case basis. I'm an adult, I can make my own decisions on whom I help, and that should apply to all artists.

man, this conversation is getting boring to lurk to.

not to mention kind of a downer the way a bunch of us are pulling the holier than thou routine.
oh lordy lordy, we should have been nice, woo!

The subject has be discussed, cussed and fussed over enough already.
Lets talk about something much more interesting. Like the new background.
At first it felt like it was done by two artist, but then I realized that Farturast made good use of his lighting and hangles and line work to give off a very different feel in the different parts of the piece.

I can only see the top portion of the background because of the small screen space on my laptop, boohoo.
Anyone willing to roast up a print screen for the Captain?

Well you're right about that, but is that a good thing? To me the lack of balance on both sides is kinda distracting even though overall it's beautifully done.

While I agree with the idea of not being hostile to anyone who asks for anything, and regret my part in messing with that thread, I don't think this is quite the same thing.

I don't think most people have a problem with the idea of collaboration, so much as a more one-sided "I want you to do something for me" sort of arrangement. Obviously not every artistic project has to be framed by an employer/employee relationship. Making an album cover for someone to better advertise their album, however, is not a collaboration.

I first thought it was a graphical glitch, but all of the repeat buttons are clickable so it's probably in the programming.

That's nothing. My American "Anti-Kill DragonPunch" shield is up all the time, and three times as strong as Canada's magic maple.
