    A little roll call for"Design Squad"...and some other stuff.

    I think we need some ground rules in order to retain the purple name for people around here i say we start cutting people out if they don't give notice and don't participate in at least 2 SotW's per month or 2 Sig request per month.

    Also I think we need more people in this group, might I suggest Inducting some members into the design squad that are active at the moment, maybe get some flux going in this place?

    So, If you have any other suggestion/ideas you can let me know. Also can I know who is actually leading the "Design Squad" or was leading it when the basically crumbled and I was still somehow a member of it even though i was kinda inactive for like an year?

    Fon, Kuro and spyrde are inactive so you could ask Ghost to remove them. They're welcome to PM you if they return and are interested in helping out again but for now I think the Design Squad should start fresh with you and Kwes.

    I really want this part of PSU to grow because I think it's a fantastic sub culture that could benefit the site but we need fresh blood. I think also trying to set up some clear cut tutorials on the very basics would be good. I always wanted to get into SOTW but was quite daunted by things like GIMP and the very basic skills required. spyrde made a good GIMP tutorial but I think it could be expanded.

    As Black said, shoot me a PM to add/remove peeps.

    It simply comes down to the fact that most of the designers are simply not active.

    I'll try to keep with the requirements for being a Design Squad member.

    And to answer your question MC, I don't know who the leader was. Decisions were made by asking everyone.
    Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.

    To say the truth If I was a mod I would remove all current design squad members and relaunch the group with a completely new set of individuals. Current designer squad members absence is absurd and they do not contribute to the design corner anymore which is the main reason why its dead, people dont want to request anymore and the organisational aspects of the SOTWs are just plain awful. Its a very big shame that people who really contributed and did something out of the design corner left (Spyrde and Sylar), those were the real and worthy design squad members.
    Due to all recent events I would like to point out that I am not going to participate in any kind of SOTWs organized by the current design squad members, I will only submit entries for requests done by other forum individuals in the requests section, that being said I really hope that the future of the design squad will be a lot better and will contain decent and qualified members.

    ...ok? That means about $#@! all coming from you cyber.

    I don't remember anyone saying you had to join in. Go sit in a corner and cry about the old days I guess.

    I wont cry about them, when I wake up I will remember them and they will put a smile on my face
    All my frustration was due to the awful management of the design corner, but now that I wont participate in any SOTWs unless more appropriate members join in, I wont be frustrated as much anymore.

    That bold quote perfectly defines current design squad members attitude towards other forum members.

    That's pretty sad that you only think of two members who were worthy. Fon, Kuro, Kwes and myself also kept the SOTWs moving and helping to advertise in the PlayStation 3 Games forum. Just because I think those who are inactive should be removed doesn't mean they don't deserve thanks for their dedication.

    I'm honestly glad you don't have the authority to remove everyone because without one or two active designers (MC or Kwes), there would be no one with experience to lead the usergroup. That and declaring you won't contribute to future SOTWs despite having already submitted an entry only to remove it doesn't help.

    None of those members you listed can be compared to what Sylar, Spyrde and Vengeful Blur did. Those were the people who with their class, skills and attitude as well as respect gave the design corner a good image and something worth visiting. The rest just kept the SOTWs going and participated in them, thats it. Podsaurus is also a user worth pointing out as he did good contribution as well. This is my opinion however but if you want it to continue like it did for the past two months then go ahead, you will just kill the section. The reset of the SOTWs was probably the most retarded decision ever.

    Great. Smile about the past, whilst complaining about the present.

    I'm glad to hear you won't be frustrated, and honestly, DS members aren't staff members. We are just designers with cool sigs, and a different colored name.

    The Design Corner won't suffer a bit by one complainer deciding to not complain.

    You sound like a robot in the first line :P , I can dig some of those Tutorials up but I don't think we have many that use gimp here for example I myself am using PS, also have a bunch of Tutorials laying around for that if you ever wish to switch sides.

    Ok K-dawg/BS, I'll "lead" provisionally until we get some more activity going at a later stage. Most of my free time is getting chewed up by reddit and college.

    Just go through my history mate. I've been here a while, i'm not materialising out of thin air and all of the sudden taking charge.Same goes for Kwes. I just think you're making snap judgement rather than give us a chance. But to be honest if more people feel like this please let me know, so I'll stop bothering with this place . Anyway I'm doing this provisionally until someone better shows up.
