Hmm..I'm all for the return of shops tbh. This current system is quite dull. There are enough active artists to keep the section going.
Maybe throw up a contest, and the first three get shops or just leave the selections up to the mod so he could give a shop to whoever he thinks deserves one in the section. Don't think it's a bad idea tbh. Champ, I'm expecting you to second this.
New Ryback sig I made just a couple of minutes ago.
