Re: GFX Section on HIATUS?
So, after about a week of being away from this site, I find a signature request in my inbox. The next thing I noticed was this thread title as I made my way down to the now 'MIA' GFX section. Pretty sad to see since I was gaining some good momentum and experience making signatures, not to mention enjoying myself in the process. I don't get the posts by people here saying no one cares or my personal favorite 'everyone sucks'. That's probably the most ignorant post on here, no offense. I get that there were some vets in here who were great, but I'm new at this and holding my own pretty well. I was getting a lot of recognition for my work as it was improving with every signature. Like someone mentioned there are NEW people filling the void left by the vets who couldn't or wouldn't make sigs anymore. In less than a month I've matched or exceeded the number of requests of some of the shops that have been here longer, that's evidence that things weren't dead in the 'request' department. I gotta give a shout out to Enigma, his/her work inspired me to give this a go, also Abk for being absolute class.
I noticed other areas of the GFX section had been dead for a while. I don't really know what else was going on other than requests.
As for the Shop Section's problems, too many requests were being made outside of shops and some people weren't updating their shops' status, even ignoring requests and taking in new ones. So I can understand the 'hiatus' status of the GFX Section, as a whole. People weren't actually following the rules as already stated by Abk. It's all the same to me right now, as my old 'graphics work' computer is fucked up, so the timing of this hiatus coincides perfectly with my recent dilemma.
