Requests - Time for some new / revised Request Conditions?
Looks like we've got some artists fired up for taking on requests again. Thats usually a good thing, right?
Well, with requests come grateful requesters when the finished artwork arrives. And even then, theres a small percentage of instances where the requester still wasn't happy with the results. Be it from trivial details to a certain shade of color or still just unsatisfied for (infinite) said reason. And also, there usually was a good stack of requests gone unfulfilled.
Given those are facts from the past, I guess I gotta ask you artists - is that something your still willing to take on and embark?
I mean, hey, it'd be great to get the requests going again, although I think theres alot of experience and learning curves gained from the prior Request days. (Ugh, I'm lousy with words today) What I'm getting at is, much like how Eclipse revamped and revised this whole site and forums, and its more efficient design, shouldn't this present a good opportunity to look back on those past experiences of good and bad, and perhaps come up with some sort of new rules and regulations for dealing with Requests? (or revise the old rules)
Something that would:
- reduce the number of standing / unfulfilled requests
- minimize on unsatisfied request results
- deal with those unsatisfied requesters
- reduce artist burnout / disgruntlement
- improve the number of satisfied requests achieved
Anything else worth commenting on / adding to the list?
So how 'bout it guys & gals? Is this point moot or valid?
(after all, were it not for the past efforts of Nafai, Chris Curtis, now Kris, and equally the generous donation of talent by the artists, there would not be a SWAG here today, nor one still running and reborn)
