Artist of the Moment

Visit my shop View my bio

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!

This will be a showdown for names now, everyone will either try to get their names down or nicknames, really hope this works out well

I really hope that it doesn't turn into that.
I might make it a private thing at first to get your name changed instead of using a thread.
Idk how that would work though cause an inbox only holds 50 PMs.


We also do have a link for your IMVU account in the contact thing but I have no problem adding another profile text area (that would display under your DP) for your imvu account if you guys really want it.

Am I the only one who doesn't like this change?

i'm not quite a fan of it either. it sounds reasonable, but being able to change your name only once a year seems harsh, also there's more chances of getting names stolen.
ALSO; there will be more confusion if people change their names to something rather than their imvu account, especially with paying with credits.
it's very positive to expand the community but it'll be really confusing and difficult to get around. especially for those who change their name on imvu a lot.

it almost feels as if gasr is completely ruling out that there's still people who use and enjoy IMVU.


Honestly, that's how I feel about it. I still use/enjoy IMVU almost daily and accept most of my payments via IMVU/send most of my payments because I can't afford to consistently restore my paypal due to bills and of the such. It'll be hard to send payment to those still accepting IMVU credits because we won't really know their usernames unless we all ask every time we have to send credits, which can get really annoying and repetitive after a while. It'll also make it hard for those of us that do still accept credits to be able to get payment from IMVU credits with people changing their names, especially with those that don't always provide proof/don't know how to provide proof.

Well for starters it'll be up to the artist to make it clear where to send credits payments- as in, mentioning it in their shop somewhere clear or even letting you know when you pick up the art.
Like what was said earlier, with the PayPal example. The same thing goes for proof although if there isn't a thread already made on how to get proof of payment then we'll consider making one (therefore people can link back to it in their shops for those who don't know)

Furthermore, I personally think one free name change a year + $5 for more is pretty reasonable. I doubt IMVU or possibly another site would do free name changes without a catch. The only reason it was free in the first place was due to you having to pay on IMVU.

Also, I'm sorry to hear you feel that way and think that we're completely disregarding people who are still active on IMVU- the point is that we ourselves are trying to distance the forum and become less dependent on IMVU.

Hopefully soon you may come to like and benefit from the change! Maybe it might take some getting used to before it becomes normal.

We could even make something like this.
(it would look better obviously)
It would be much easier to maintain because moderators could help us edit it.
(if you wanted to do a "verified" system)


Or we could just leave it to the user to edit.
Because we can just handle the people that lie about it to impersonate someone accordingly.

I don't think we really need that since we can already link our IMVU profiles in the profile thingy to have it appear in the bottom part of our posts (i'm so bad at explaining myself)
Sat May 02, 2015 6:35 am
-has read the news- Sounds like a plan.
Sat May 02, 2015 6:56 am
10/10 can't wait

artists with a different username from imvu - that accept credits as payment - should just add a line in their rules/guidelines/whatevs to "send credit payment to 'xxxx'", just as you would with paypal.

isn't that hard ayyyy

and if that worries you just add a line on your imvu homepage that that account corresponds to your gasr account or smthn, if you're worried about anyone taking your ~imvu identity~. or deviantart identity.

Plus i think that the people who wouldn't have their IMVU names would feel left out in a way? idk ;---;
I don't think its necessary, Especially when your trying to pull away from IMVU.

Plus, I think that the contact option for IMVU homepage would tell you, And if not then I'm sure the person would have their info on their shop, Just like they would for paypal. You're big kids, You can handle a little change hee .

I like the idea, I think its great to be more independent from IMVU.
Even though it feels kind of inevitable, I hope that this doesn't lead to screenie based editing becoming slowly eradicated, because I like being a part of the community and offering a service to others but also earning from this, and I have nothing else to offer apart from avatar enhancing.

whilst i dont think it will be eradicated I really do think that a lot of imvu based markets are going to disappear after some time, say - screenshots sales, badges, icons.
OR ATLEAST will slow down considerably

but I think DP editing is strong enough to not like "disappear"

I dont think it is a bad thing to have an increase of original art on GASR however

To sortof addon to this, If your really passionate about art you'll want to branch out anyways.
You can't do dp edits forever, You wouldn't be reaching your full potential @D@

We define inactive as:

- Has 0 forum posts
- Hasn't logged in GASR in 1 year.

IM LOST ON THIS PARt
is this like
EITHER hasn't posted anyting or hasn't logged in GASR in 1 year
or does it have to be both?
Sat May 02, 2015 10:26 am
^ both

otherwise they'd be going around deactivating accounts that are only a week old with no posts 'n stuff?

Though, at that, question: What if someone has a username you want ~ssssooo badly~ and they have been inactive for A LONG ASS TIME but do have "some" posts?

Would you guys take an initiative to send an email out so said person requesting whether they have any use for this site? Just wondering, this doesn't even apply to me, though I can imagine someone might want a certain username of someone that has been inactive for YEARS or what but have used the site in the past 'n stuff yno

how far would you go?

if you wanna stick to just those two tho that's fine no pressure it's totes understandable
Sat May 02, 2015 10:36 am
^ exactly
so if said person only has 10 posts and hasn't logged on for 2 years (hee), it'd only be reasonable to delete them, if they haven't replied to the notification, to give that name to someone else?

if not, i can understand why, although imo someone being inactive for 1+ years no matter how many posts they have should be deleted on request, since it's super unlikely they'll be back.
Sat May 02, 2015 10:51 am
U GOT ME THER HURDURR

yeah no exactly. though what I recall a different site doing was they'd send an email (via whatever mail they registered with) to said person requesting whether they'd ever consider going back, if no and/or no answer, they would delete the account anyway so the person that wanted the name could get it.

so that could be a thing, but it depends on how worthy of a priority it would be to an admin 'n stuff yno i mean its just a username u bettr get creative and think of something else maybe
