Hi everyone! I'm currently in my last year of university, graduating in May next year! I love art and I've tried my hand at various things such as drawing anime/chibis/doodles but it seems like I'm better at doing pixel art, so I've stuck with that since. I'm self-taught, so I'm still experimenting around with different styles. I've been running an active shop for over a year with a few hiatuses in between. I love GASR as it has a great community where I can interact with fellow artists and art lovers :) I've made many friends here over the years and I hope that continues for a long time to come!

@Diabolus

Is there a way to make new messages float at the top of your inbox until you read them?

Suggestion: it's a long onee..?

This suggestion concerns the contests/challenges of GASR. I fully respect the OFFICIAL GASR contests and challenges, but I feel like there is a lack in hype/excitement for these things. I came from a forum where we did something called modeling, which included various editing, drawing, photo manipulation. This was called a competition with a desired theme or idea based on the host.

Example of PRIZES:
 

It all depends on the host and what they can provide for their competition, it is important that you keep your prizes realistic and safe (safe meaning, do not offer your MAC BOOK IPAD PRO Mini as a prize). Usually if you want to offer a real object to the winner, thats on you two to discuss shipping, etc. But I highly suggest keep it realistic.

The judges position in the competition would be to judge the art pieces. There will be a criteria for the judges to follow based on what the host wants. Example:
0/5 Creativity
0/5 Color
0/5 Theme
0/5 Style
And the judges will have the opportunity to give their personal critique on the art piece and what you can improve on! Usually the judges would have lots of previous art related work in order to judge. Judges can offer tips, their opinions, fangirl/boy, etc.

The big issue that is important to address is the art theft!! For competitions here (if I could ever host one), I would require that the artist participating in the competition provide a certain amount of WIP pictures/videos along with their official art submission. For the public view, the art will be watermarked and the official art will be PM'd straight to the Host + Judges for review. This will clear the air in terms of any art theft related submissions, and IF we do get any suspicion or anon tip that something was stolen you will be discovered in the end.

There can be different genres and ideas hosts can implement through competitions/contests. It can be long or short, detailed and themed or simple. I have seen other competitions that have had success in the past; story telling contests (followed by a photo/art), fashion, B&W, etc.

EXAMPLE COMPETITION:
 

I would love to actually give this a go, but I'm afraid its not allowed lol. So I'd like to suggest this to you all~ Let me know what you think and your concerns/questions. I'd like to mention that I wanted to post this suggestion here on Help & Feedback instead of Contest/Events Suggestions because it's not an Official GASR Event, more of a community hosted thing.

Hey @NOSTALGIEX

Members are allowed to host their own events already.  All you would need to do is run it by an event mod (@Mattie for instance) so they can make sure the contest/event is within guidelines.  If it is, they'll give you the green light to go ahead and set it up.

More info is located here under "Contests and Event Forum" -

LMAO.  My favorite show ever!  But no worries.  I recommend reading the other sections in there as well.  They might answer some questions you haven't asked yet!

@Nostalgiex
I also modified the description of the Events and Contests subforum so people know that they can also create their own contests, too. Hopefully, this will encourage more people to create contests. I think we've had a few user-hosted contests in the past, but they've been all thrown into the basket.

aaah, is the feature that a notification comes up before you refresh the page go away?
it would usually pop up somewhere and then once i refreshed, it'd show the lil pop-up that i got a new message or what not. ;v;
did that feature go away? it's a lil thing, but i liked it since i would be able to be notified of messages even if i didn't refresh or move the page for awhile.
/not sure if this make sense
