Please don't go any further. I really don't want to see the Spock thread happen all over again.

I'd be horrible at gold since I'm still trying to learn the ropes. I got the general idea of do's and do not's in the forums, just have to get used to it a bit more though

Eh don't worry, you're still new to the place. Takes time to get comfortable to Snafu. Just explore the forums a lot more, interact with others, like getting to know each other, and so on. Gold is a special position, so time, experience, and respect is need so you can be a good example to everyone that comes here.

The last Gold member added was 3 years ago.


Woops! I mistook the join date of the site as the join date to the Gold group when I was looking at the list. >.>

Tbh there's not nearly enough members in here for it to be relevant. Sure 4 years ago it would but now? It's just a color.
Have you tried turn it off and on again?

They were all added in one huge burst during Gold's conception. Gold was initially made with a very vague plan, but I guess in the end no one really knew what the plan was. I think it had something to do with improving the community. Just because people 'can' be added into the gold roster, doesn't mean any new golds will ever be made, mostly because the reason they existed in the first place is no longer relevant.

Gold was initially created back when the future of Snafu was very uncertain. In case no one remembers, the site was literally locked down for about 9 months (or so) preventing new people from ever joining, due to rampant bots and a lack of technology to deal with them at the time. When Thomas joined and promptly fixed everything, the site was stable again. More or less at least.

Though, nowadays it does seem like some good does come out of gold. I think the ideas for the Art and Literature contests were a gold spurned idea, but that was a while ago now. We could use some more cool community projects.

If I've said it one time I've said it a thousand times-

90% of the shitstorm is replying to shit. If you don't fan the shitstorm, it's more like a shit breeze, which is still shit, but far more preferable than a shit storm.

Also it doesn't help that people are digging up Krest's posts and getting angry at them even though an entire page has gone without a single krest related post. Perpatuating Krest posts keeps Krest posts happening, remember this. :?

Oh. Really?

Huh. Well then scratch that little tidbit I guess.

What about the Art one?

Bird, Doc reacted to one Krest's posts at the bottom of the last page. He had every right to do so.

Don't bother replying. I'm just not gonna get involved anymore. Whether Krest gets banned or magically manages to pull that stick out of his ass, I don't care.

Art Contest one was suggested by me and supported by the gold members.

Will there be future art and literature contests? Just curious is all, or it hasn't been decided yet?

There can be. There is manpower needed to make things happen right though. Hell, if you want to help spearhead another art contest you're welcome to do so. I'm sure some golds will be willing to help you out on that. If you show that you're doing work the mods will also help you set up the threads by locking/managing things.
Don't ask what contests the community can do for you! Ask what contest you can do for the community!

No point, I'd win again in a landslide anyway.

Right, that's what I thought. I wasn't so sure about the literature one, but I was almost certain that you were the founding idea person behind the art contest.

And finally one last thing. I don't even have a dog in this whole Krest stuff, but since the start of page 10 has posts from two years ago, having this thread spiral into 5 pages of pure Krest Thread seems like a waste. If people want to troll or be trolled by Krest, they can take it somewhere else. If Krest says something in this thread that is counter to your own personal opinion, at least admit you are propagating Krest Threads when you further derail this thread into oblivion.

Bird, drop it. You are doing exactly the opposite of what you are trying to advise people with bringing it up, again.

I realized this, yet also realized if no one said anything it would just go on anyway. At least by calling attention to it people might not allow this thread- and maybe future ones to spiral completely out of control. This way I saw it as preventing an off topic tangent at the cost of one last off topic post. Forgive me. :'(

I'm not good at art quite yet (at all, actually, need LOTS more training) but I can write if I put my mind to it. The only question is how to go about all this, and when?
