And this is what I want you to do.

Continue posting your threads the same way you do here. I like threads about artists, poetry, writing etc. Others probably do too, they just never visit the gallery.

I did an experiment with Lyles thread earlier this month. I moved it to ID where it got 6 posts within the day. Then it got moved back to the Gallery where it's received a further 1 post in like a month or something.

I'm going to merge all the Gallery threads into ID so I'm sure the "recent review of a book" and "art of the ~day" can continue to exist at the minimum. But I don't want this to end up like the Arena, where sport is never talked about ever again. So that's all I'm stressing, keep posting your work. There are some talented people and some creative stuff here.

And from now on you can say "very nice" in reply if you think something is very nice and want to encourage someone else. Obviously extensive feedback is more constructive, but if all you want to share is an unjustified opinion then go ahead.

Please post in this thread any questions or issues you want to raise about this move or anything related.

I dont understand why people dont cruise the forum index more often. So ID will have four moderators...will there be any special consideration towards art threads when it comes to protection against flaming and such? I kinda liked having a wee glade of art away from the mele of the other forums.

ID doesn't need any more moderators.

I will pay special attention to ensure that art threads are protected and any trespass will be dealt with impunity.

I think it's also a good idea to let the general ID population know that art threads should be treated differently than the "40+ fight videos" thread.

I'm assuming you'll move this announcement to ID when you merge The Gallery. If not, will you post an announcement?

Good bye, Gallery!


This has long been needed. The Gallery has been slowly declining since its creation.

Make it provisional, and if arts disappear altogether like happened to sports then open The Gallery again. It's better to have a slow forum dedicated to arts than to not have anything at all.

And bring back The Arena

"Lo, he, in the time that he is inside, is not touched by the storm of the winter, but that is an eye's winking and the least time, but he straightway comes back from winter into winter, what thereto may precede or what to it may follow, we do not know."

ID should have atleast an 'artsy' moderator representing those who do intend to post gallery threads in ID. None of the current ID moderators know what is involved in moderating gallery-type threads, nor what is acceptable and unacceptable for those threads. Appointing a moderator that knows how to deal with gallery threads would assist in the transition, and in the long-term.

I would say NNY makes a good artsy moderator.

This is sad to see, but hopefully it will get the art threads more traffic. Take the ups with the downs.
<IF0> jess.
<IF0> skye.
<IF0> one of you.
<IF0> or both of you.
<drahnier> you're very perceptive
<IF0> need to come visit.
<IF0> because i think that means i'll get laid.
<suicyanide> how did you draw this conclusion?
<drahnier> because you're desperate sluts?
<drahnier> ZING
<suicyanide> ....NO
<Amphytrite> i am because i'm willing to have sex with drah.
...
<drahnier> amphy, you've just insulted us both at the same time

He has had experience making and posting in Gallery threads; he understands what qualifies as good criticism as both an artist and a reader/forumer of this forum. I think that's enough.
