    To see the the inkling of what might be a great idea click HERE....

    Basicly (and this is just an expanison of Smef's Idea) if in addition to graphic part of this board, we added an archive that Smef * was in charge of that would hold most of the old sig's and artwork that have been used on here. In addition to Smef running it, there should be some people to help him run it as well, (mole, D2, ronin, tempest, koekie, opium, zarcon, jumpman. cajoker, redundancykit all spring to mind as canidates, some are already mods, and some arn't but they do contribute to the board in a positive way)

    Basicly I'm just bring this up on Smef's behalf, I not only think his idea is brilliant, but I miss alot of the old sigs that aren't up anymore (Remember tempests first sig? I haven't seen that in ages)

    What do the rest of you think? It can't be any worse then the graphic forum, or the contest one?

    *I hope that by championing this that I'm not oversteping any bounds, but I think it would be the best way to get Smef's idea to frutation and that if he was in charge of the addition to the forum he wouldn't have to ask people to help him set it up...

    Ummm... this IS my first sig. All I ever change is the text, and even then it's been a while since I've done so. [edit] Oh, yeah, I forgot. Mole optimized the original JPEG for 56k modems. Still looks the same as D2's original, though.[/edit]

    I'd support the idea of adding a read-only board to the Graphics section that contains each artist's work. Mail a moderator of that board (easily able to set people up as mods of just that one board) to have your work added.

    We'll have to give this more thought, but 'tis a good idea.

    The only ninja I ever saw from him was, indeed, on his avatar. He just switched it back to the good old Obnoxious Hero avatar we all recognize him with. I don't think I ever saw any other sig than his current one either.

    The idea of a new board as a gallery seems nice. You'd need to discuss to one of the admins about this thought since it's their site.

    People, we've gone over this before. Those who ask don't get moderator roles. The most likely ones will be contacted by admin when (or more accurately, if) this idea gets approved.

    Oh, THAT one... I actually have had four avatars. In chronological order, the dancing Black Mage, the Obnoxious Hero, the ninja (Sneaky Villain from MutedFaith), and (for a day) a special one D2 made that I was experimenting with.

    Yeah, that be a nice idea, and is should be read-only because if you had it open for comments on the work, it could become spam and flames.

    EDIT: Also, since it would be older work, it would already have been posted somewhere with critiques.

    Who was it that had that big pict of Gundam Deathscythe way back in the day? I think its a cool idea. I would like to see all of those old sigs all come up on one page.

    Gotta agree with Tempest tho, its all still up in the air. What was that old addage? Something about chickens and hatching...and I'm sure there was 'counting' involved in there somewhere [​IMG]

    It's "don't count your chickens before they hatch", often connected to "don't put all your eggs in one basket".

    My variant of that line:
    "Some say, 'place not all your eggs in one basket', but that merely means to scatter your attention to the winds. I say, place all your eggs in one basket, and WATCH that basket."

    Exactly. It's the variant I use.

    I didn't credit it to Mark Twain/Sam Clemins for two reasons:
    1) I was busy writing a lab report at the time and
    2) I first heard it credited to Andrew Carnegie.

    This seems like a good idea. The bad news is the fact that the err images may not be found again. As in someone may have deleted it and cannot be tracked down.

    I'm sure there's some spare space on gbatemp.net that could have a more structured gallery using HTML, rather than using the forum.

    If you were to do that, I'd be happy to design it [​IMG]

    Yes, please do that it would be much easier to look at exactly what you wanted when you wanted to. And if you do I still think you should set him if with folder for each contributing member, but you should judge each new user entry and see if they are good enough to have there own space for their images, and you'd have to make sure their not using a sig or something someone else mad for them.

    I would definetly be in there. Though none of you have seen what I can do yet if you read my sig you know that I am planning on showing you some of that skill with my own sig and avatar.

    maybe someone that can code php (costello, anyone?) can edit a certain forum, so that we can upload images + description in a gallery (+database)

    that would be incredibly cool
