The old titles caused a lot of headaches on the administrative backend. Most of them were discarded during the website merge. The ones which confer special tools+privileges (such as the Modder group) will be reintroduced, but some of the "prestige" titles (such as Zombie Artist) will probably not come back.I do wonder what happened to the Zombie Artist title though...
If people post too much nonsense on threads belonging to inactive artists, then we'll simply lock the threads.
As long as you're here -- do you have any objection to myself (or other volunteers) copying your work onto the Resource Manager?I'm officially dead, and at this point have no intention of returning to make new mods, hairs, etc.
The RM is a standard XenForo feature, and the hope is that it will make the community more inviting for newbies. Instead of clicking through hundreds of threads, someone could find "all of the nude mods for MMOs" or "all of the SDT custom hairstyles which involve short blonde hair" or "all of the SDT superheroine costumes" by fiddling with a few Tags.
The system is fairly robust, but it currently holds less than 5% of the extant SDT mod files. Obviously, this incompleteness limits the value that it can deliver to users. We're not actually aiming for 100% completion (because a lot of old SDT content is shitty and isn't worth the effort of migrating) but copying the thread contents of a good artist can add a lot of value to the system. This is true even if the artist is no longer actively creating mod files.
If you object to the whole idea and would prefer that your work be left alone then just say so.
If you'd prefer to setup your own Resource entries then that's fine.
If you're okay with a volunteer migrating the files on your behalf then let me know and I'll add your thread to the queue.
