The discord option isnt' a MUST, you are not forced to be on there. It's there if you want to join, and if you don't want to that's completely fine as well.

No decisions are permanent either when it comes to removing / keeping the OT. GASR is changing and keeps on changing over the years, things will be removed and added back again like in the past and some things wont. We do keep the posts here in mind for now and in the future.

Regarding the OT mod idea, I'd just like to ask a genuine question: Those who are suggesting it, would you actually consider applying for it in case we opened a spot for a new OT mod in the next row of applications?
Tue Jul 12, 2016 8:36 pm
@Mar Yes I would.

Edit: I sit on my comp all day at work, and I have access to this site.
I dispatch so i generally have alot of free time at work to be on.

re: mod thing.
I will if I know that I have enough time to be active in moderating.

Sure, I'd apply but I don't believe I'd have the qualifications for it haha. I've modded before but on sites where the age range is like 13-16 LOL

Personally, as long as the community has somewhere on gasr to chat, I'd be happy. I think this should be an example of what happens when people start fights. Since this is the second time I've see "shit go down" in the matter of less then two months? I'm sure more has happened but these two events with Feelngs thread and unpopular opinions closing are pretty close together. Personally, I think I agree with @kia and think people should have cool down periods. Or have threads have cool down periods where people can't post. Then give out warnings if people continue to fight. 

Sure, people are free to vent about tragic events but since people can't do in a respectable manor, these topics should be off limits. It sucks not talking about certain topics but I guess not everyone can be respective to each other.

TL;DR
Gasr needs somewhere to vent. If fights happen again like this, people need to actually get bars removed and warnings.

Agreed. All parties involved, not a few people or one side or another. That's my two cents on this thing.

It's not like people can't socialize in the chat box that is literally in the right hand corner of the window. loool.

I wouldn't mind the OT getting a mod, but at the same time, like, that'll only solve half the issue. A mod can only do so much, and even then, shit will still happen.
some people are immature, and no matter how many warnings they'll get, they just don't understand

I agree with Sonya 100% on just keeping art related threads.
because even w/ an OT mod, shit would still get out of hand. You saw how badly Feelings Thread and Pet Peeves got, and the same thing just repeated itself.

You wanna talk to someone? get their skype or chat in the chat box.

GASR is an art forum, the existence of an OT isn't entirely necessary
some people are here not even for the art but just to talk
yall can do that elsewhere

I'd agree with keeping it art related if it's kept as well.  Those who use the forum for art and art discussions shouldn't be punished because of other threads that aren't needed here.  

Time has already proven multiple times that gasr is not a safe place for you to vent your feelings and opinions, so I'm not sure why people are fighting to keep those kinds of threads here.  There are so many other outlets on the internet, why do we need them here?

Why do you specifically need GASR, an art forum, to host a thread for you to complain about the weather, or fight about racial issues (since you guys seem to love bringing them up but can't handle it when the discussion gets serious), or to throw shade at someone else?  It's all fun and games, but it's not really needed.

Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, Skype, Kik, text messages, IMVU(OT Forum, Pulse, IMVU Next), SecondLife, FML, MyLifeIsAverage, the gasr chatbox, etc etc.  The list goes on for other outlets where you can do this.  Why does an *art forum* have to?

I suggested having an OT mod as well, but then I realized it would just be another position of authority people would fight for and not take seriously enough to make a difference.  It would also just be another staff member for people to claim is corrupt when they try to remind people the difference between a heated discussion and harassment.  A common misunderstanding that fuels a lot of the arguments that go on around here.

Yeah, it's going to suck to lose topics discussing anything video game related, because that's my life 90% of the time, but there are other forums I am a member of that are there solely to discuss games, so I'm not really losing anything.  

The only group of people I see this really impacting are those who never post outside of the non-art related threads. That only leads me to the next question. Why did you join an art forum to not participate or discuss anything related to art?

I feel like I understand the other side that wants to keep the OT around more;
however, I also want to understand the other side.

I was just about to ask you guys to explain the pros of it being an art dump sub-forum only (mostly because I know some of you are active in non-art threads in the OT so I figured you would have solid reasons), but you beat me to it lol. I think I understand more why it'd be nicer for it to be an art dump sub-forum only. I don't 100% agree with everything said - maybe ~90% - ,but I do understand.
