One last update for the evening...

I added the most recent A_B entries to memories, and hope to add any further entries to their proper category thereafter. This will hopefully be a good reference for anyone and everyone in the future. If I missed any vital entries in the past, comment here.

tania and I have decided on co-mods for the community! Check the info in a few moments... If anyone else is still interested, send either one of us an email or comment here. Thanks guys!

[edit]
If you were not chosen the position of mod, that does not mean we will not consider you in the future. We believe that we now have enough to moderate the community. When there is an opening announced, we will check out other applications.

Sorry for not mentioning this earlier, we had to temporarily disconnect the computer.
Artist's beware has moved!

I vote no.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but having an entry posted about you (and recently, at that) is not exactly a good track record when trying to be a mod.
Plus, your "no signatures" thing seems kind of contrary to the general feelings of the people who would be posting here.

What I'm saying is, often, art theft issues often arise from people who remove or alter signatures on other people's artwork. Are you going to be sympathetic to the original artist in that case? That's all I'm saying with that particular argument.

To be honest, the only time I've seen your name come up it has some kind of drama attached to it.

I'm not saying you wouldn't ever be a good moderator, I'm just saying that now is probably not the right time.

...you're saying 'no' because I prefer my privately owned art 'raw'?

That's not a legit reason. That's my preference when buying art for myself and my home. How can it be "contrary to the general feelings of the people who would be posting here..."? Half the people agree, half disagree. Some don't care. And yes, i have reveiwed the opposing side's arguement as legit of a reason to do so, but I can still ask 'no signatures please' if I want to even if I have no reason. Do we really NEED to bring 'this' up in EVERY thread that I post in? This is number 5 already.

Anyways, I'm online a good 12-14 hours a day thanks to my job (cuz it's boring, lol). I check up on my lj every 5-10-20 minutes or less when I'm not busy. I check up on old threads/entries that I posted in as well frequently, even weeks old, as well as still reply in them.

I take both sides of every arguement, thus alot of accusations that I am contradictory. But I'm not: I just take both sides into deep reveiw and thought.

I think I would be a fitting cannidate (sp). Please acknowledge me and my future loyal services.

I second this, KAK would make a better mod.

i vote no, not because of your dislike for signatures, not for your stealing and altering of jilduck's icon but for your attitude regarding these situations. It's not because i dislike you or because i think you are a bad person, i just don't feel you have the right attitude to mod this community and, like drake_anaya said, i don't feel confident that you would be sympathetic to the artists who want signatures on their art or don't want their art manipulated and credit not being given for the original art. Even when it's something as easy to dismiss as a 100 x 100 pixel image.

We appreciate your offer, Mix, but we mutually decided to decline because of the recent controversy surrounding you on this community.

The general idea behind this community is to support the rights of artists - and most artists understand those rights to include the right to sign their art and the right to upload their art (including photos and icons) without running risk of it being taken, modified or reposted without permission.

You are entitled to your own opinions on all this, of course! These communities exist to foster discussion and debate about such things, and I hope you will remain an active member and contributor.

Thank you again for your generous offer. :)

Who says I don't respect and support the rights of artists? They have full rights to "sign their art and the right to upload their art". I just prefer the art I buy to not have a signature veiwable. Is that 'seriously' disrespectful? *sigh* I beleive that it isn't... I'm not trying to disrespect people by doing so, or asking to do so. I just don't 'enjoy' the abstract taint of a contrasting signature in a beautiful peice of work... that's all. Sorry if I offend by doing so, it's just me.

Could you please contact me via email about this matter though on 'recent controversy'.

Not to mention the fact we post about artists who don't deliver their end of a commissions and Mix has offered commissions on Furbid (without samples) for ridiculpus prices (150 opening bid) when I don't think anyone has ever seen art which was made by him, at all.
He mailed the icon(s?) he made for 100x100 and no-one has ever seen those either, so it looks like he was just in it for free icons.

I sent you an e-mail, but my e-mail client has been giving me errors a lot lately and I'm not too sure my e-mails are getting through.. oO; But if you need more help, I'd love to help out. :3 Been watching this community for quite a while now; it's been an amazing help to me and I'd love to give back somehow.
