Special Request - Printer
« on: November 11, 2020, 03:20:09 PM »
- What is your in-game name? swordsmancs

- Current Rank? Diamond Donator ($250)

- How long have you been on the server? Just under a year (one year as of Nov 28th)

- Which special rank do you want to apply for? Printer

- Why do you think you deserve that special rank? Long story short, no one else will do it, but I like to.

- Did any staff member suggest that you apply? No.

- Additional Information: So, I know this is probably self-explanatory, but allow me to explain what I mean by "Printer". It's likely well known that I don't make map art by hand like our local legends charactername111 and Silver_Dragoon1. However, I have made some large and impressive map art pieces before, and therewithin lies the point of difference between being a 'Printer' and a map artist. For me, the quality of my work doesn't come from the fact that it was built by hand, which is what makes Chara's and Silver's art so impressive. For me, what makes my work impressive is the sheer scale and quality of the image I can produce. Currently, the largest work I've produced is 3 maps tall and 6 maps wide, and only took me 18 overall hours to build (including a break in the middle, to be fair, but not counting such outliers, I'll be able to match that time and likely produce similar sized maps in 2-3 days maximum.) While it's not the largest work on the server in terms of map art, it's still the second largest, and I think that should be important.

So why should I earn the rank? Well, look at it this way. Say you have a promotional image for an event of some kind, say a new sport or minigame that you want to advertise in spawn or in your town. Or say you want a banner to represent your town, and you have an image in mind, but you want to be able to hang it up in your town. Now, one map might work, but why not use 12 maps in a 3 tall, 4 wide setting, something that can really be seen and hung above your doorway? That's when you call me. Give me a couple days and I can make these massive banners for you. That's why I think I should receive this rank.

Tl;dr, I may not make my art by hand, but I can make my art on a much larger scale than anyone else on the server has the patience to make. Just because anyone can use the same tools as me, doesn't necessarily mean anyone will, an important distinction. If other people did have that level of patience, then Joel and I wouldn't be the only two people on the server who've made a map bigger than 3x2.

I am a loving person "cute" some will say and if I don't have anything to do I will follow you, But I do tend to be a bit clumsy "so my bad!"

Good luck, you deserve it!
My favorite pastime was spending hours staring at dynmap seeing the beauty of the world we have made together. What am I supposed to procrastinate with now? RIP dynmap. 2013-2020.

Yessir. Most of the maps can also be viewed within my town's art gallery (Lathana), and all of them can be viewed in my base. (PS, this may have been posted a few times, it keeps stopping me from posting the reply. If they have, I apologize, and if they havent, I still apologize)

(Looking at the screenshots, it seems I accidentally put one of em up twice, so I'll take the extra down)
