Artist of the Moment

Visit my shop View my bio

Hi, I'm Kori. I joined GASR in 2014 and have grown to love the community and people here. I'm a self taught hobby artist but I've liked to draw and paint ever since I can remember. I didn't get into using a tablet till a few years ago- and I love it. My family has always been a really big supporter in whatever I do, so I hope to continue and make it a more serious thing. I believe there's always room for me to improve so that's what I plan to do.

Just a suggestion, everyone start taking paypal only, unless you want to purchase clothes ingame lol.

This had been thought out before, using paypal only, so I guess it was a change that was due.
Wed Apr 08, 2015 4:48 pm
Could've just made my thread a sticky, but ok.
Anyway, I hope all of you that use credits to supplement your income find a way to still make it. I would also suggest paypal, as I seriously do not trust IMVU with my tax information.
Not in a million years.
Wed Apr 08, 2015 4:51 pm
not everyone can get a paypal that is the issue
it's easy for people who already have a paypal and stuff but yeh... i remember when i had troubles with paypal because i was underage. kept locking my accounts and stuff

but what chocob said; all changes aside, who the fuck would trust imvu with their tax info
Wed Apr 08, 2015 4:54 pm
I had literally made this thread 1 minute after yours (I was probably typing it up before you had even made it).


But anyways like most people who buy my art do pay in paypal but I'm really sad like
I mean I had to jack up the credit prices but I still could accept payment in credits but now I no longer can.

Goodbye potential customers



Also with every big change to IMVU they have been fucking over GASR at every turn.

Not me, legit. Is there a way GASR can make a currency or their own or something? .-.

That is true. In that case, there isn't much of an alternative for the people who can't get paypal, which is why this move is so damn hurtful TT.

And they have the nerve to suggest that the community asked for this.
Wed Apr 08, 2015 4:56 pm
We have discussed doing this in the past (when we wanted to distance ourselves from IMVU).
About making our own currency you can use on GASR.

However...

Basically us admins would have to turn GASR into a fulltime job and start getting paid for what we do.
Because we'd need to hire lawyers and get legal paperwork sorted out in order to do that

Because it ain't as simple as one would think.
And I really don't want to do that.

And I don't think anyone would want to start paying us real money LOL.

You know Bedlam, don't sweep it under the rug just yet. I mean how do communities like Deviantart get started? If GASR really made an effort to become an independent, and legitimate entity, yeah, some people would end up leaving because of the whole not being able to sell credits, but a lot of people, including myself would support the site.

And i do mean financially. A plan like that is probably not in GASR's immediate future, but who knows?
Wed Apr 08, 2015 5:12 pm
the thing is it is a huge hassle for the small team we have, especially since we are all pretty occupied like we have lives outside of gASR, we have studies and stuff. we just dont have the time to treat gasr like an independant community and all the extra effort that comes with it
Wed Apr 08, 2015 5:23 pm
So resellers are no more, was hoping this wouldn't happen. Welp, could find friends/people who want to buy cheaper credits, I've done it before but those kind of people are rare now a days. This is a pain though, I don't want to share my tax info
Wed Apr 08, 2015 5:23 pm
GASR is sadly tied to IMVU because 99.99% of their users are from IMVU.. and most just want pretty edits for their dps.

Gasr couldn't really be compared to dA, dA is a gallery like website, GASR is a forum ; O;
Wed Apr 08, 2015 5:27 pm
Man my dreams would come true if I could quit school and live making a really cool art website.

I just yeah our team is small list of people who signed on to volunteer their free time not also quit school and make this a full time endeavor.

But it's nice to know that not everyone would flip the table and leave the site.

To be honest recently we're barely tied to IMVU.
I don't even update my DP on imvu LOL.

Like most people have OCs that aren't even IMVU avatars anymore.
Every day we distance ourselves more and more.

Was thinking... people who have no prob doing this but still want to earn credits and then sell some on the side (of course only to imvu soon) they can have sticker payments or something that'll cover the expense of the art they're buying and it'd be accounted as a product sale. Right???
Wed Apr 08, 2015 5:31 pm
On the positive side;

I think artists are going to start getting better paid.
Because who wants to go through with a $1 paypal transaction.
