    I nominate Mtarik and BenDZN as the official GFX Artist on this great community.
    Mtarik is a person worth attention. Maybe it's just starting with the creation of graphics, I find pretty good compositions for an amateur.
    He certainly does progress, which can be seen. As a web designer, I give Mtarik a nominee to try if he's fit in this rank.
    Benjamin (BenDZN), also a designer, but at a higher level. I think people can agree with me on this matter. He is active on the forum, honest and probably beats me. I think that this nomination for this role is the most on the point.
    My final comment regarding the above men is:
    If they're in graphics design, why not give them a chance for ?

    I appreciate the nomination, I personally think that I don't deserve it as much as BenDZN (because he has years of experience ahead of me) I also think that if I do get the rank there may be some outrage since my skills aren't on-par with most people on rune-server, But as Cael said I'm currently a novice pursuing graphics, as a hobby, and this will never die as i'm hooked and want to increase my skills whether or not I get the rank. I'm sure that I will eventually get it, it's just a matter of when I will get my skills to the level to be worthy of the rank. - That's all from me, Mtarik

    (Thanks again for the nomination)

    The official GFX artist? The graphics forum has divulged into an amateur circle-jerk. People only post here now because they want to show how much they ripped their client off or because it makes them hard to see a bunch of apes post 'good job'.

    Ben and Mtarik are both good friends of mine. Ben has worked hard for years to get at his skill level, and he's pretty good, and mtarik has been restless several nights learning more about designing
    That being said, I don't think I even 'deserve' this rank. Never really wore this rank as if it made my dick bigger. Quite honestly, it didn't, and that really disappoints me.
    But.. could you imagine if they distributed the Programmer rank to anyone who was just trying hard to be really good?

    I would rather the whole rank be removed so people stop trying so hard to get it. I really don't like when people use a name color and icon to motivate them.
    Nothing against either of you, you're both cool as hell. But the designer rank simply doesn't mean shit. Even back when this section flourished it was barely anything haha. Distributing it now using these standards would qualify almost every designer who walks through this community.

    I sort of want to argue the contrary, though I understand completely where you're coming from. As mentioned, this rank really has become a circle jerk, though one covered in dust from neglection and disinterest from its current members. Encouraging activity within the section should always be a priority, especially for those of us who are passionate about design. As it currently stands, the only real incentive for doing so is the rank. True criticism really only is provided by a few of us, and even then quite sparingly, so I think it's fair to chalk up most member's interest lies in pursuit of the rank.

    Because we've both possessed the rank for so long, it's a safe argument to say it's lost any true concern or interest to us. It's tough to argue that same point from the self-appointed perspective of everybody though. There's still members around who uphold the rank to a status it arguably did once hold, and those are the members who're still interested in attempting to acquire it for themselves. The Designer rank has become less means to showcase appointed members in their artistic talent and passion for design as a whole and instead become a relic held onto those of us who thrived in the past. I'd gladly give my spot up for someone deserving if it means it'd encourage them to continue posting and contributing to a section I once held quite dear. I'm not saying I'm no longer interested in the section as I still swing by from time to time and give critiques, but there is members who still post their work daily, provide feedback, and in general contribute in an active and positive manner; it's those members who deserve to hold the rank. You could argue they're not up to par, which may even be true, but it's been so long since we've made a change to the standings of the Designer rank that the bar once held has arguably become archaic, much like the practices of most ranks within this forum.

    @Cael - You're not an official Designer, so unfortunately your nominations don't hold water given the current established process of bringing members into the ranks. That being said, I fully agree with you on both of them and would like to see them be given the rank, or at least a fair chance in receiving it.

    I could agree with that response that they should have the fair chance in receiving it. Who knows, maybe this topic could serve a good purpose and have rank hunters post some new work. That would be a silver lining.

    I like ISAK's stuff, very creative guy. He's mostly the reason I tried photo manipulation or "piecing" stuff together for my last sotm entry. I mean I do gfx casually but I just don't think it's good enough on a post itself, which is why I only show it in sotm. The feathers are cool to get, but I'm limited to Photoshop until I can get my hands on AI and AE, until I have the experience of using them that's when I'd shoot for the rank.

    I don't think people should make art as a commodity to be traded in for a rank one day. Personally, I keep that in the virtual goods section and I post art here when I want to make something for the fun of it. I think the rank should be given to those that push each other to get better by providing honest and constructive CnC because that's what it was like before and that's how I really grew as a graphic designer. People here need more than a 'good job', 'awesome man', 'kiu' they have little clue about the foundations of good graphic design. Though all the designers don't care about eachother anymore because it's turned into a rat race to become another bureaucrat in this community.

    In all honestly, I think too many people have the rank in relation to the size of the graphics community already. If more ranks are given out almost every person who posts threads in this section will have one.

    Sure you can give out ranks as a participation award but people aren't going to progress and it will just divide artists.
