EditBoard / NiceBoard graphics team!

Post by Buster on March 4th 2007, 10:37 pm

I suggest that EditBoard (NiceBoard) setup a graphics team.

    Why?: As you all can see EditBoard (NiceBoard) is some what low on "skins". Also, many images are still in french.

    How will this help?: The team would be a Non-profit organization with the hopes of improving EditBoard's (NiceBoard's) graphic, and hopfully increase EditBoard's (NiceBoard's) population.

    Would the graphics team be part of EditBoard's (NiceBoard's) staff?: Yes after all they are doing this for EditBoard (NiceBoard) without asking for anything.

    Would the graphics team be part of EditBoard's (NiceBoard's) moderation team?: This is for EditBoard (NiceBoard) to deicide, however I think that the team should have selective moderation, which should only be in the "Graphic design section".

    How would members join the team?: This is for EditBoard (NiceBoard) to deicide, however I think that the team should have the last call on if a member is good enough to join the team.

So do you all think that EditBoard (NiceBoard) should do this?
Do you the staff of EditBoard (NiceBoard) think that it should be done?

Ifthis had been proposed a few months ago (like when I just entered), my answer would have been: Hell no!
You don't need to be staff to propose themes of pieces of graphical art, like you do nicely Wink
Also, you can't force creation, it needs spark, intuition, interest...
Basically, it would be unfar to impose on the creation of new themes


Bu, times change, andeven tough I still think these previous points true, I think it could be interesting.

So for now I'm not votng, I'll vote after having seen a few members opinions Wink

Well see the reason the group would be of the staff is because, well they are doing this for EditBoard (NiceBoard), and they have the right to be "honered" for what they do, and I can not think of a better prize. (Oh, and also thank you for the complement Caihlem.)

True you can not, however the great thing about a team is:
    1) If a member does not wish to "work", they do not have to.
    2) You will have idea bouncing all round and people will want to start doing a ton of stuff.

See now I don't think so, I mean look at this:
http://help.forumotion.com/Miscellaneous-c2/Graphic-design-section-f6/Self-service-Gallery-f9.htm

And then this:
http://forumotion.com/en/Computers-and-Internet/Various-35.htm
50% of those are nows computer graphics sites.

And thats just in the english side! The greatest thing about graphics, there are no language barriers, art is art!

Well lets see:
    Katt (Moderator) (Well... you all know)
    Metal Knight (Moderator) (New but learning)
    larme d'ange (Member) (Does he still post?)
    Nemesis Prime (Member) (Has a graphics forum)
    Buster (Member) (Me...And you've all seen my stuff, right?)
    xaphania (Member) (..I really don't know much about her..)


Now thats 6, just from one thread:
http://help.forumotion.com/Miscellaneous-c2/General-Discussions-f7/Only-topic-Your-creations-with-graphic-art-softwares-t486.htm

Now, I know there are more, and I know there most be some in the language forums... right?

Yes but Katt is moderator here, helper in the french support forum, admin of here forum and more so she has too much work to create regularly (in my opinion). Larme d'ange is not here regularly. So... 3 members and perhaps they don't want to be allowed to create, I don't know Smile

Hmmm, very, very good points.... how about if I can get a mini forum, and maybe a site, together, get about 10 members, that are willing to do this for free(!), then will the EditBoard / NiceBoard forum leaders agree to set it to a vote?

But you know, I'm not sure it's very important because the first goal of this forum is to allow the member to have help for their forum, there is the editboard directory if they want a graphic creation

True however what is done for EditBoard / NiceBoard? Nothing...

That means that there are no items for the sites to use such as "Pips", Templates, Avatars, and even more. Now many people want these, but they can not get them here, its kinda sad.

Hello,

I don't think it's necessary to create a graphic team because the first goal of this forum is to help members with their editboard. Members can do requests. Wink

We propose a self service to allow to the members to give their creations and we have a little graphic demands section but the best is to ask for something in a graphic forum Wink

An old buisness saying said something along the lines of:
"Instead of all working in one aim, let us all work in our domain (specialisation) and in the end, find a greater result"

Basically:
~> Leave the graphics for the graphics forums.

P.S: on many graphics forums, you find full skins Wink
