    Done. That's why it pays to read first before taking action. Safer. Can't believe I had to strip 4 votes as they were done by Community members or lower.

    Re: Gallery Update

    Out of curiosity... how many of the people voting "no" have even contributed anything to an elite gallery?

    Most of the people posting complaints ~aren't~ contributors >_<; They're just benefitting from their "elite" status.

    Seriously: even if the elite galleries continue to exist: is anyone actually going to contribute to them? How many "vets" are there anyway?

    306 Vets
    57 Elites.

    The VIP gallery was created by the Vets / Elite. It's only a small part of the gallery, and the gallery has a whole lot more to offer anyhow. There are more than enough other areas in the gallery where members can upload to.

    True. But the original question was: are enough people using/contributing-to the "elite" scan gallery to justify it's existance as a seperate entity from the regular scans gallery now that the regular scans gallery is all HQ scans now and accessable by everyone?

    Thats be a point if this poll to see if it gets change back so that would be a problem if it dose.am i right ?


    Well since i can remember being here that section has only bin accessible to Vets and elites.Thus i think it should stay like that or go back to how it was.The difference to let a Community members in letting them see that section is you only need a 100 post and after 30 days verses what Elite ? which is Achieved after 150 days AND 500 posts.


    What is to stop people from just joining up reaching the goal of Community member getting what they want in that section and never coming back on ? i rather it be Elite and up if some one can stick around that long and show there worthy of that privilege they have earned it through there hard work and sticking around.

    You can be here for 100 years and still be an idiot. You can be here for 6 minutes and be a wickedly awesome member and contributor.

    Longevity proves nothing of worth.

    And the REGULAR scan gallery isn't going to "go back" being "elite only"... wasn't in the first place. The question is: do we need a gallery for scans that are the same size as those in the regular scan gallery ~ only with a different minimum? There's no way to enforce a seperation of image sizes unless both galleries are accessable to quite a few members/contributors, as it's unfair to move the scans from that gallery to the HQ gallery when their own contributors can't access those galleries. There is no way to move all scans over a certain size to the "elite" gallery without screwing people over... and enforcing a limit cap on the regular gallery is only going to reduce the potential quality of anything new and regular members can upload FOR the community. I personally wouldn't appreciate that being done to my own scans (now nearly half the entire scans gallery). I scanned them to share with ~everyone~, and I intend to do just that.

    So, should a small group of people have access to a little bit of HQ material?
    Or should we open all the galleries to encourage better material and organization in general?

    I'm fairly certain the result of this poll is going to be: "give us something special, because we're better than everyone else".

    But if you opened it to the whole community... I think you'd find yourselves vastly outnumbered.

    It is as simple as this. I am not an asset to the gallery, but I would like to think I've contributed to the forum. Tsurara, if you and your fellow staff members back then decided to let people continue and come in and just download stuff, I would not be here today. It was the fact that I was stopped by a message saying I have to be a com. member that I eventual posted and kept posting...and posting....and posting...

    In my opinion, there aren't a lot of good talented gfx artists out there. As I have suggested it before, keep it the way it is now for the gallery. And another gfx artists can show us their work and we'll make exceptions and give them access to the resources.

    'Cause you give me something / That makes me scared, alright / This could be nothing / But I'm willing to give it a try / Please give me something
    'Cause someday I might call you from my heart
