While that's nice and all, and if anything I can relate to you. (We've
spoken before about our living arrangements and "coming of age"
difficulties.) Though, I don't think that's really professional
reasoning. If it's really that much of a task to be the head of GGT,
and not really opting to expand its purpose, why not leave it?
Seriously, if you're going through that much of a personal dilemma, is
it worth it? Not trying to sound cynical or pessemistic, but really.
If I came in once a week to work and gave some personal life excuse,
they'd say leave it at home or don't bother coming to work. You should
know this, you've worked in the restraint business. Do or die, man.

Dumb idea. Terrible idea. GGT isn't even needed any more. Fools who use "copy right material" should simply have their PWs removed. It should require a global graphics team.

However, I agree with Scott on one thing. The tutorials wouldn't be a bad idea. He says the overall graphics quality has been going down, but I say it is the same as it was 5 years ago, and he is simply better then he was before so the illusion of it going down has been produced. I think tutorials could help to bring the skill level slightly higher, though I doubt that would do much of anything.

Graal has always had crappy graphics people working on stuff because all the skilled ones don't have time to play these games any more. They don't have time to work for a company for free who in turn makes profits on their work. If this company paid for work, then it might be a different story. Why make anything for someone when there is no compensation? I would rather post graphics on a free forum for critique and comments where no one makes a profit off my work then give it to graal where people make a profit on the things I worked so hard on.

Side tracked a little, but I think my point has been given. Graal no longer needs a team like this - but it does need a group of skilled graphics people to teach them.

The overall graphic quality is defiantly better than it was 5 years ago.

Either way you are still not making money. Why does it matter?

You've displayed massive stupidity and lack of thought in that post, and that is all I need to say as a reply because your brain could not comprehend anything beyond that.

I'd like to see sufficient evidence of this as I can provide one hell of a supportive arguement against your ignorant, flaming opposition.

Lets keep on topic and stop arguing, can't we all just get along.

And Trevor, I think Soul Blade meant that, he does'nt want playerworlds and the players to get credit for using his GFX.

I remember using that script a while ago that controlled which graphics we included on the main server. Brings back memories, heh.

Its that factor that made graal so exciting at first, and now that is simply ruining it.

Not the politics factor, but the fact that there was (supposed) to be an open chance for people to take positions if they were deemed worthy enough. Guess that system failed twice.

I had a long reply with many good points written out... and lost it.

Point in case being: Due to the notorious cloud of uncertainty around the GGT and the PWA already handling stolen levels and scripts, it was a natural progression that people came to us about graphics instead. It's not much more work anyway.
