I was glad to see that phoenix made a thread to discuss the current "chaos" in the gfx forum, but unfortunately this seems to no avail.

I use to enjoy the gfx forum, making sigs for people. But the request forum is currently being spammed by people requesting things, and these requests being their first post. Not according to the rules, providing no images what so ever. But more than that, these threads are constantly bumped or even duplicated because most of us dont even want to respond to m. personnaly, im getting sick of having to attend these people to read the rules, and Im getting pretty angry reading the gfx forum on a daily basis. I sure hope that this situation is being taken care of somehow soon.

sincerly,

jack

S3ph should be back soon, I'm sure he'll sort it out, he's getting pretty annoyed at the fact he has no intarweb right now. I can try and lend a hand in the signature requests thread, it's just a question of whether I can be arsed, or I have the time, plus I'll most likely forget that I said I'd help.

i am annoyed at the many people posting and bumping, but, i like to make sigs, so whoever requests something that i am personally interested in doing, then, i will do it, if not, i just skip over them :)

one thing i am TRULEY annoyed at, above all else, is the people requesting us to do their, or their freinds homework for them, i mean, whats the friggin point in that :S

anyway, i hope s3ph will come back soon and, i will direct some ppl to the rules if its not already been done a million times when i read it lol :D

Indeed, I've only been here for a week or so, but the lack of discipline in the request section is driving me away from doing anything for anyone.

This is how the average thread looks:

Title: need a siggy plz!!!

Body: hi i need a sig and i liek starwars. make me one that says my name and has a video in it

What pisses me off the most is that people actually have the balls to demand signatures and avatars. No thank you, no recognition at all. Someones gotta crack the whip real soon.

As I said in my thread, this forum obviously can't be left unattended.

Now, i'd come back, and I have thought about it recently...but it would have to be after May 2nd or thereabouts (when my projects are done and my homework starts to slow). I already reccomended to jack to look into moderating this forum, as right now he is more active then me, and he is a good candidate for the job. S3phiroth may come back, maybe not, I understand that moderating a gaming forum isn't a valid reason to re-establish an internet connection (those damn reconnection fees!). Fragger seems like he has left, as his last activity was far too long ago, which is a shame, because he was a good moderator when he was here.

The good news is that this forum isn't in horrid condition. Spam isn't common and the contest/showcase forum runs smoothly. I'm not saying that it is an easy job though, it just requires steady tending to, something that I can't do at the moment, and something that can't be adressed with the current moderating crew situation.

jack, my best advice is to go with what I told you in my PM a week or so back, and who knows, maybe i'll come back to help out soon.

Until then, guys, don't get too angry about the situation, it has been like this before, and its certainly not fixable.

I would like to do the moderating of this forum. Or maybe untill seph or fragger gets back. Im pretty active as it is, and I visit the gfx forum a lot, because Im more and more becomming a PS addict myself. But its up to Azh really, if he thinks its necessary right now. Would it be a very hard thing to make some kinda system for requesting signatures? maybe the member needs to have at least 300 posts or something. Or the request is sent to my PM, and I can read it, and if its according to the rules, ill have it posted.. that way we could keep the most annoying requests out.
