16 Months

Hey guys,
15 incredible months are gone and there is just one more. This journal might not be the last goodbye, but it's a prelude. What am I talking about? If some of you read the CR-Newsarticle "Changes to the volunteer program" they will know.

This changes mean, for gucken and me, to step down from outerspace back to earth as normal aliens :alien:. The reason why I'm telling you this now is pretty simple. I want our last month to be one of the best of this time. Suggest deviations! :eager:!!!

As the CR team is going to shrink in future, I'm not sure if there are going to be new space/sci-fi GM's again (hopefully at least one). You see: if there isn't any new one, May is going to be the last month for you to suggest a space/sci-fi image to the specialized gallery mod.

gucken and I really want a successor. We talked to Moonbeam13 about it already. If you see yourself as a appropriate person (space/sci fi related, community/dA addict, eager to promote our genre) feel free to write us a note. We would like to help Moonbeam13 and find the right one for the job (if there is going to be one). That ensures the best possible result I think.

If you are interested, please read the following FAQ's before writing a note to us:
:faq82:
FAQ #84: What are the Core Values of the Community Relations Department?
FAQ #85: Can I be a volunteer on DeviantArt?

I just read that news article. IMHO, that's not a good way to handle it. If one of the GMs gets bored or frustrated, he/she should by all means resign and hand the job to someone else. Making hard rules like max. 1 year GM, then at least 1 year pause will for sure not solve every situation in a good way. I believe that hard rules will always cause more harm than good.

Do I have a better idea? For sure I have. But it's pointless to tell - since it's already decided, presenting it and discussing it will do nothing except making me frustrated.

(I have no idea what the GMs do, but given that I don't even find the time to create and upload as much fractal stuff as I want, I would not want to become a GM, not even for money.)

Therefore: :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship: To both of you!

It's a real pity. What more can I say.

Well... Are you considering to come back after the year? :D

Hehe thanks :) I'm pretty sure, there have been a lot of thought behind this decision. So it's all fine from my side :)

If there is a need for us in one year and if we are taken again, sure why not :)

When is yours and Jeff's time up, more importantly when do I have until? I tried finding a date and wasn't able to and I might apply soon...

And no, no sexy time with Alastair, though it was his idea

Aww it's kinda sad to hear you guys won't be moderators anymore.
Been so long already lol
I really hope you guys find a successor.
I'd love to be one, but I'm nowhere as good as you guys and there's so many other great space artists out there who'd qualify better than me.
I'm sure you guys will miss being moderators but at the same time will be happy to have a breather.
Btw, were there GMs before you guys? If so, who was it?
Reply
:icontaenaron:
taenaron Featured By Owner May 1, 2010   Digital Artist
Thanks man! :) Yes there was a GM before us --> `Nicasus. but to be honest: there wasn't much activity from his side. that is why we wanted the job.

The job is also about time. To be a good artist is (in my opinion) not the most important thing. :)

AdrienCGD Featured By Owner May 1, 2010
You're welcome! ;)
Thanks, I checked him out and he's pretty cool.
But he's not as hardcore as you guys since you have way more space art than him and very different too.
I hear they're not gonna have as many GMs as before, so like you wrote, there's probably only gonna be one that succeeds you guys if we're lucky.
So if you're only medium-good at space art but are devoted to space art and deviantart, then you would have a good chance at becoming a GM?
You know, I'd love to be a GM.
But how much time do you guys need per day?
I think I could find about 6 hours per day.
Haha I'm already dreaming wide awake! :o

I think it is fair to say yourself and Gucken gave a much needed community boost in the space art sector and it's a shame that you two will be stepping down.

Oh and right after this week? Would be awesome to get you back. I'm also missing TND. Talked to him in MSN two weeks ago but he seems to be dead again.
