Ok so falling in line with the discussion Doug and I had on IRC last night, I'm basically going to use this bluff to put myself in absolute power in Smeargle's Studio. Once I'm there I can convince all of the artists to sign over their work so we can sell them to John Sykes (the guy who's making the Pokémon book being published by these guys later in the year, you all know already how much this deal could get him) to solve this server cost problem. I spoke to chaos recently and he said that the server costs him 1,000 Venezuelan bolivares fuertes (that's where it's hosted) per month, which is pretty extortionate. He's ran out of money and he needs other sources of income, legal or not, to fuel it. So I suggest this. Please comment if you think you can help. I'm talking about running it smoothly and so we don't get uncovered. It could be pretty hairy. Here's the OP I'll be posting later today: These are basically the biggest organisations in the studio. I'm going to lure Dogfish44 into heading the WSC, but in the end I'll be the puppetmaster there. I'm going to do the same with wickdaggler and the MAC. Ultimately I plan to combine the MAC and the Smog Art Contest, which puts greater reliance on me, giving me more power. Once all of these have been achieved, I'm just going to bend the rules and get rid of any problematic characters like teddyman13. The idea submission part is simply to make them feel like they have power when really they don't. It's an idea that reachzero suggested to me, thanks bro! So I'll start PMing artists later in the month and get them to sign over some good work, and then we're in the money! Unless of course you have any objections, which is why I posted this. Ask away!
