Default Graphic Artist Bears

Graphic Artist Bear Suggestion "Graphic Grizzlies"

We have knuts, and polar bears, trading teddies, and sage bears, (and mods and admins)...we should have Graphic Grizzlies!!

There are so many of us that are in LOVE with graphic making, shops, and helping others make these computer creations. I think some should be promoted into a special postition!

There could be threads dedicated solely to graphic questions, maybe several different for the different programs. Curious graphic learners could post thier questions, and the Graphic Grizzlies(or any name given, I just thought that was SO cute, and fits the bear theme) could answer them, since they'd have mostly mastered the program!

Yes, we have the guides section and stuff, and the yikes, and we could still keep those for stuff like this...but this way, only members that know the program could answer. (instead of the members that try very hard to answer someone's question by googling it, but don't know the question. -_- Or the 10 members that say "i don't know because I use ___"

Requirements could be by:

posts (non fluff of course)
length on BI
responsibility
shops
posts on their shops
guides
posts on their guides
examples of their work
flaunts on flaunt thread
and if they really know the program. people can own powerful graphic programs and use it, but they really have to know it to truly be able to use it

Likely programs-

Photoshop (each type-elements, .0 versions, CS)
GIMP
Photofiltre
And any animation programs, not sure what everyone uses.

There could be a couple people for each section. The more popular the software, the more people. Maybe. :)

So that's my idea. :) Hope you guys agree!

Have any ideas to add? I'll add them!

--------------------------------responses--------------------------------

@kitty: Well some people might have to have their feelings hurt. They can't get everything they want in life. Trading Teddies and Sages can be turned down, can't they? Based on ability, a little. (posting and feedback)
Eventually everyone on here will apply for a job. 10 other people may apply for that job, but only one will get it. It's based on ability, and will hurt feelings.
I've seen it mentioned in the shop section before, BI has several opportunities that prepare members for lifetime responsibility and choices. If members cant accept that they aren't good enough yet, they just have to keep trying and get better.
Requirements don't have to be on graphic ability, just the knowledge of the program.
Bottom line, life lets you down sometimes, you have to get used to it. :P
BTW, could you post the links to the other threads you've seen this? I'd like to read the replies. ;)

@Kitty again: If you can't get any better, then you just take it. There are little kids here, and if they get upset, they get upset. I don't mean to go all society, but I think everyone is being too soft on younger kids. They don't make them work, and when they don't get what they want, they get compensation. Not giving them a rank is, IMO, not a call for a badge.
This is just IMO, not trying to offend anybody...but I'm just defending my opinion. This is something I'd REALLY want, and if you guys get to oppose it, I get to defend it. :D

@Blue: These are just suggestions. I'm not saying all of these should be required. Your points are valid, thanks for taking time to post them. Here's my thoughts on them:
reps--Yeah good point. I guess reps can really count, so I'll take that off.
length on BI--this is a general requirement for trading teddies that I'm just including here. it's just so not anyone of the street could come and automatically become a graphic artist bear...they might never come back! that's my thought on that.
shops--again, just a suggestion. Just another way to say 'hey, I'm responsible' It could just be a supporting requirement, not neccesary, but liked.
truly be able to use it--holy cow I don't mean the whole program! I just mean I don't think someone can walk in with photoshop CS5 and become a graphic bear, and only know how to do text and stuff. I just mean they should be more familiar with other common tools.

@zoe: Thank you! So I'm not the only one that thinks that if you get turned down, it's not that big of deal! *wipes sweat of forhead*
great point w/ the flaunt thread. I'll add that.
With the posts--thats (like I told blue about length on BI) its a requirement of trading teddies, so I figured they'd continue it on here. Whats the trading teddy limit? 100 non fluff or something? Somebody could have 628,000 FLUFF posts, and somebody could have 20 NONFLUFF posts. I'm just saying what the trading teddy thing says. (:

@zoeagain: Yup, I put that in. Different place for each program. :D

@abbi: graphics have nothing to do w/ trading, so I think you can get promoted to it from any rank (excluding knut)


NOTE: Could I have a mod or admin reply to this eventually? To give their opinion? Members opinions are great, but it's nice to know if this will EVER be possible. ;)

I heard this suggestion many times and the only reason I think they didn't put out with it is because they don't want to hurt anyone's feelings.
If in your application you have to submit a graphic to support your abilites, and the person thinks it is the best graphic ever yet the 'judges' say it's very poor, then the person may feel down.

But when you are a Trading Teddy, you can work harder and be more helpful opposed to being a Graphic Grizzle because people who apply for that, there is a possibility can't do any better then the graphic they submitted.
I just think that there are younger people on this site and may get really upset if they don't make it. But to add on to this idea, if you apply you should automatically get a badge or something special for trying. If your application is higher quality, then you should recieve the ranking.

That would be really cool :]
Though one concern is that people might be offended if they don't get accepted. However this is a great idea. A question; where would this rank, rank. You know, place above Trading Teddies? Sage Bears? I have a feeling it will rank the same but it would be quite difficult.
