    After some discussion with my fellow artist badgers, we decided that Smeargle Studio is degrading into a shit-fest. There is a limit to what can be called "art". We're tired of looking at crap-art by talentless, sackless crap-artists. Smeargle needs new inspiration, new direction, and more than anything else: Real Talent.

    If the rest of Smogon can be comprised of elitist pricks, why not us too?

    So we decided to form the QC Smeargle Staff, essentially comprised of all Artist Badge members.

    A restriction will be imposed on Smeargle Studio, indicating that only QC approved artists may open art threads and post art work. We will review application submissions by artists looking to post their work in Smeargle, and ultimately decide whether the artist is good enough to "join" the studio.

    This is what we want submissions to look like:

    (Warning, NSFW):

    Your artwork has to be:

    (A) At least this good-- really, this picture I drew is not that great, and I did it in like, an hour. This crude level should be a BARE MINIMUM of artistic ability for Smeargle artists.

    (B) Yes, we want pictures in this format. If it is not an extremely sexy picture of Misty, we will deny you outright.

    (C) At least this sexy. If your pick does not get a raise from our team, it will really not be worth looking at.

    When a submission gains a positive consensus from the QC Team, we will make a poll for it in Inside Poop where all badge members can vote on the picture-- (A) Yes, this pick makes me hard, let this guy into Smeargle! or (B) Meh . . . nah . . .


    Submissions that get a 69% or higher in the polls will be passed, and the artists will join the elite ranks of Smeargle Artists! ONLY OFFICIAL SMEARGLE ARTISTS WILL BE ALLOWED TO SUBMIT WORK TO THE STUDIO AND MAKE ART THREADS!


    This is just an outline of our plans. For initial implementation, the smeargle mods will go back and lock all threads with less than 20 luv discs. After that, we will begin application process.

    Thanks for looking all!



    PS-- after enough sexy misty pictures of successful applicants are compiled, we will start making lots of Smogon revenue by selling CG compilation CDs and sexy misty T-Shirts. Look forward to it!!!!

    sounds good to me, but will sexy may or dawn pictures also be acceptable, or is it just misty that we're focusing on?

    That is a very important question Snorlaxe.

    The QC staff will have to go back and think about that. We may decide to open it up to all Pokemon female characters.

    I'm also very partial to Cynthia, because she's badass-sexy, and Whitney with her giant milk tanks.


    ALSO, GIVE A HAND TO FATECRASHERS, WHO HAS AGREED TO BE THE OFFICIAL "SUBMISSION BOX" FOR ALL THE CRAP POKE-PORN SUBMISSIONS. I CAN'T DECIDE WHETHER I ENVY THE JOB OR NOT!

    In short, if any of you badge members would like to get on your applications early, send your submissions to Fatecrashers.

    yeah, i think that would be the most acceptable solution. i mean, each poke-girl has something different to offer, so it doesn't seem fair to discriminate.

    I agree Snorlaxe.

    Anyway, due to drawing that Misty Pic . . . anyway, I g2g take care of something. I'll be back in an hour to respond to any questions.

    Especially all artist badgers, we'd appreciate your posts gauging your interest in being a QC member. If you don't want Fate to include you on the PM lists for art he decided is at least discussable, please post here. If you don't, we will continue to forward you the submissions.

    Cyzir-- that goes unsaid right? Well, for now, we'll treat all the artist badgers in the QC squad unless they don't want to (or unless they've been inactive for ages of course . . .)

    Wait wha . . . ? Alch, since when do you have an art thread anyway? Plus you retired right?

    Anyway, this only affects people making art threads (illustration, not spriting). If you just wanna be snarky with us and see poke porn, than sure you can join the team and Fate can forward the submissions to you. Otherwise, not a big deal one way or the other.

    E: Oh cool. Sure we'll share the love with you alch.

    Thanks for checking in Fate.

    I've decided that a 20 Luv Disc cutoff is too arbitrary. Just because the public "luv's" a user's work, doesn't mean it's actually good. In order to balance this discrepancy, I'm afraid we're going to have to actually begin the arduous task of considering the individual threads.

    First we'll automatically OK all the Artist-badged threads. After all, if you've got a little yellow diamond by your name, that clearly indicates that you are a higher being.

    Next, we'll have to look at the non-badger threads individually, and come to a consensus. We'll be somewhat kind to already existing and active threads, passing them as long as there is a general positive consensus about it amongst QC members.

    AZ, we need that Smeargle Staff channel we were talking about to discuss this. I propose #SexySmeargle. All Art Badge holders, please meet in the channel to discuss threads. Hopefully we can start putting together a final list of "good" threads by the end of march.

    Once we have the list, we'll need Cyzir and Aragornbird to go in and lock all the "bad" threads. We'll then sticky an announcement discussing the QC process.

    In the mean time, any badge members looking to get in ahead can send their porn to Fatecrashers to get assessed behind the scenes. If approved you will automatically get in to the "good" list.

    Also, I want to use this thread to have nominations for threads to be included in the "good" list. Once nominated here, we will discuss it on IRC

    Thanks all
