GASR Time

@Fervent ah okay! Yeah I probably wasnt active at the time and missed it. I have noticed we're using it more for general gasr advertising which is nice too ^^

Idk man, we get quite a few people who use adspace.  This month was a little slow but we have some months where we have 3+ ads in each section running the same time.

I don't see any issues with it for the time being, and we already use it in the way you and Fervent discussed.

We already planned on going over the prices, but it wasn't to make it cheaper.  Most forums I'm apart of with similar traffic to GASR charge like $10 per week for an ad similar to the one we have for our sub-forums, while we only charge $6, so I don't think we'd ever lower the prices.

Idk I know I become inactive here and there but it always seems a little dead to me, like maybe one person using it here or there. Also, I wasn't suggesting lowering prices at all.

Not a big deal, but my posts were just deleted from the LGBT+ thread. I was helping someone with a question, then all of my posts got removed? To avoid spam I told her we'll just go to PM, then they all got deleted.

Even her post was edited to remove my @ that she tagged me in?
Thu Jun 01, 2017 3:57 am
@Marona that is odd. I didn't remove or even see them. maybe someone else did?

Can I request that the header/banner image not be animated please?
I'm all for the rainbow and the LGBT+ Pride. But the animation isn't very appeasing to the eyes.
(It legit triggers a headache if i leave it in view for too long).

Please consider this. Headaches are not fun. @Chelly

It was considered. I slowed the animation down a little more, but it meets PSE friendly requirements (no more than 3 flashes of movement per second).

Cleaned.

I apologize to our members on behalf of that ludicrous display.  It's not out of the normal for people to get upset about receiving a forum warning, but this was a whole new level of childish and I will not continue to let users ruin this thread for the rest of those who use it for its intended purpose.

Please contact the appropriate mods in the future if you have an issue with something instead of making it public, since we do have the right to set the record straight if you decide to lie or stretch the truth.

So I don't know if anyone else can notice how dead the auction section is.
I think we should fix that <3

We could do something I'm seeming done other places.
We could have an auction event every month (or how ever often, explaining this I'm going to use every month)

The first three weeks of the month a theme is given, people make premades following that theme
The last week of the month people can start bidding on the pieces they want.

More details:
 

I just want to see that section get some love like the rest <3 !

@Moose Hey mediaa specialisttt, have you ever thought about creating a GASR Youtube? The main theme of the youtube would be to create GASR Guides, easy to learn instructions on the navigation of the forum, how to post, etc. It could be quick 5 minute videos. More ideas that could be generated from the theme;

-How To Expose Your Artwork
-GASR Guide to Social Media
-GASR Guide to Creating DPs [not an art tutorial, but how to ensure you create quality DPs as an artist and how to save yourself from backlash for example; always save unwatermarked and textless versions of your DP in your folder in case they want a change or don't like the text] things like thatt]
-GASR Guide to Comissions

Also if a Youtube channel was created it could generate more attention to the forum and if it became big in the future, Google Ad Sense payments to the channel creator/the mods could help out the forum.

IF anyone has anymore ideas pitch in ;D

@Angel

Thank you for the suggestion. And yes, I did consider a YouTube channel. However, it's a bit too early for that, at this point of GASR's life. Creating videos takes time, necessary skills, software as well as preparation such as script writing and planning, and other things. I am familiar with video production process as I have done it before, but while some videos could be done by one person, some would require assistance on various aspects of the video production.

Apart from video production, the channel would require a religious dedication to producing and uploading the content. Otherwise, there will be just some guide videos just sitting there. The content should also be engaging and interesting. Why would anyone want to watch those videos and subscribe to the channel otherwise?

I can see the channel making it big as well as GASR itself, but it would require some serious hard work and dedication. And yes, the idea is great. It's awesome. There are so many things that could be on the channel. I have many ideas myself. But the execution would require the effort of people even beyond the GASR staff.

There are still some ideas I haven't executed in full yet for other GASR social media accounts, though the first step was taken already. I hope to proceed with my plans in the near future, which should help attract more people to GASR. But it will take time.

Finally, GASR Tumblr had a 'Question of the Day'. After I started handling the social media, I decided that 'Question of the Week' would suffice. It did not get any attention or responses, at all. So I scrapped it. The reason why it was not successful is that GASR Tumblr does not have enough followers just yet who would be motivated enough to engage. The Tumblr also does not get many notes, even on important GASR News and Announcements. All of which indicates that there are not enough active, willing to engage and/or interested followers just yet. Similarly, GASR YouTube channel could be started later. After we've got a strong follower base on the rest of social media accounts who would be eager to flock to the channel after announcing its existence.

This turned out longer than I intended to. But I hope it is informative, and explains things well enough. I will keep your ideas and suggestions in mind. Some of them don't really require a video and could be executed sooner in a different format.

Moosey Thanks

I'm not sure how possible this is but I have one suggestion.
I've seen on some forums 'Post Style Settings' where you can set a preset of text color / user info alignment / etc. (example below) but was really aiming for something that lets you place preset coding / align your text for each post. I constantly like to center my words / have a smaller size text when posting but it can be bothersome to code it every time (that or I'm just lazy.)
I think that if this were implemented it would just be really useful and convenient for a lot of users!

<--- basically what I mean but different options?
Wed Aug 02, 2017 6:58 pm
also, I'm not sure if this will count since it's only applies to (obviously) select members, but I think you guys should start a staff member of the month! I don't think you guys get as much recognition as you really deserve and it would be cool if you guys were able to vote among yourselves maybe and start something up like that!
