I will be starting this by talking about the GFX Rules. The Graphic section has become a Absolute Joke. When the rules were there everything was going ok people werenít making requests after requests. Now it is 4 requests a day by one person also sometimes when people donít get replyís to their requests they start getting angry and start using the F Word.
I have been noticing that people canít even follow the simplest rule ever bump your topic after 3 days come on guys seriously you people are that impatient if you are get your own software.
I asked Don Bianco This question this is what he said.
Do you think the rules should come back for the GFX Section?
- There's not a doubt in my mind that the rules should come back. Without them the GFX section has become worse than the Gang section.
In the Gang section There is a topic called Weazel News. Alot of people are saying they want the Rules back.
No offence people are taking advantage Narcis_speed6 says bump your topic after 3 days they still don't listen.
Also the GFX Artists they have lives they sleep eat and work.
They do the requests on their own terms I know but if they Graphic section carry's on like this they will be no artists.
|and I QUOTE Southern comfort† We might as well close the damn request area if nothing is going to be done.|
so please Admins think about it.

|I've heard that line before but the next step is we simply voice our complaints out loud. Rules are needed there or eventually all of the designers will get up and leave. He can do something about it, he is the forum leader. Simply add more rules, he is the sole moderator of the forum and he has to enforce his section of the forum some way. When push comes to shove you push right the hell back! What is the point in even having a moderator there if he is prevented from doing anything?! I can't get my point across any clearer, official rules need to be put in place or it'll turn out just to be another avoided place on the forum. It's simple, put rules in and the dark cloud above the request section will be gone!|
This is when some requested the rules came back/ Vertical limit.
|I QUOTE Blitz said this |
A real f*cking shame that is, things were going way smoother with the rules.
|I QUOTE AJBNS87 Said Good to see the section being firmly controlled and topics getting locked/ - This was because of the rules.|
|I QUOTE SMC12 Yeah, they were badly needed. I remember the GFX section used to be full of artists willing to do requests, but then it just got overloaded with impatient and ungrateful people. Everyone will probably complain it's too strict now, but that section is better already.† - That's when the rules were there.|
|And I QUOTE Southern comfort I am aware of the old rules and I am not sure why they were trashed (or if they are still in effect and you are not enforcing them) as they would clean all of this mess up in a matter of days! Sure we do complain about the section going down, but that's because nothing is being done to stop it from falling! We try and fulfill as many graphics requests as we can and help the section grow, transforming the topics into a Yahoo messenger topic is just a side effect of absolutely no rules put in place.|
If you would like to see the quote on southern comfort go to gang section Weazel news page 4.
How would you feel admins and moderators if you were an artist and people didn't listen to you or did so many requests and started using f words and not bumping the topic every 3 days.
You moderators get frustrated when one of the rules is broken in the gang section.
How do you think the artists feel they have to suck up and do the Requests.
REMEMBER THEY DON'T GET PAID and I know you guys don't get paid to but come on at least have some sympathy for them.
In return you could at least put the rules for them.
Thanks for reading.
