since it's a community decision, you must be suggested by someone else. note that the promotion is only a recognition gesture, as there are not any extra privileges for contributors.

Plus, in the old version, we sometimes had to wait one week until an admin promoted someone. Moreover, VinnyJ was almost always the one who promoted people... and he's not admin anymore. :(

That was because the "+1"s became less frequent with each nomination and some half-nays,
so I gave a window of time until everyone else made up their minds.
Some people got insta-creator/contributor, because of their work and knowledge proven by post history.

Anyway, It got way less strict in the last 2 months, so more contributors were added  :sugoi:.
Not that it matters now.

What about Craigniceboy for the sprites he has contributed.


http://mugenguild.com/forumx/index.php?topic=64542.0



I, myself (IMO), would definitely approve of his incorporation into the contributor group for his hard work. I mean, its not everyday you get a spriter much less a sprite converter.
LOL, Caddie's the man!! ;)

I'm as real as the runnin, I just happen to rap, Nigaas London, Japan, and i'm scared of dat tap.

I suggest extending my banning, cuz when I come back, it's gonna be hell. You think I was annoying before, oh man, it's on now :)

Maybe creator titles.
There aren't any creator titles anymore, just contributor.
About that. I'd like creator and/or special member titles to have a comeback. Why? Because some people, because of their efforts, creations, whatever, in IMO (and surely in the opinion of others), deserve more "honorary recognition"  than others. It's true, in the end all are contributors, but some ppl do give more than others (in quality and quantity). Anyways, they would just be, as [E] said, symbolic gestures, since there wouldn't have any special privileges. Also, that would mean moar star colours :mugoi:
Just my thoughts.

All that does is promote the "Haha, I am better than others." Mentality. The recognition good authors recieve is from the fans and their peers.

I do think

motivation through stars > elitism through stars

...why? because a && b:
a) people who have 6 different star colors and have been around forever don't care about stars at all, neither positively nor negatively. I know I don't. Also, we pretty much scared all the overly proud creators away lately :P
b) people who are new do care about them (-> human nature), for some it's even an actual reason to get into creating - not a decisive one, but it does have some influence. weird as that sounds.

but I'm okay either way - since I don't care about them :P

What about palette creators, can they be considered contributors?

No way.

Even my 4 year old cousin could make palletes.

I was not being sarcastic,i taught him to use PSP 9 for drawing and also creating palletes.

I must have the magical purple star it make my e-penis grow ever so large all the online hunny bunnys will love me oh please bestow the magical purple star on me!!!

/sarcasm

You get the title when you earn it.  It's not just about characters either it is what you give to the community as a person and as a creator.
People get it not because they beg and plead or release crap in the hopes of hitting the magic number for it but because they put in time and effort to a "hobby" and a community.  It is those that just do it for the love and fun of doing it that deserve the title.

This is for everybody who thinks the title is a status symbol or a way to get standing in this forum.  If all you do for mugen is just to get that purple star then you do not deserve it.

It is a token of appreciation and respect for those who put just about everything they have into their work and nothing more.
/Rant

Again the above was not aimed at anyone.  I just wanted to make it clear to anybody who creates shit and expects a purple star for it.
