What do you mean not "run the way this one is"? This is not a community on the RPF this is a single thread on the RPF. The thing is, you don't draw lines! The whole point of this site is to push people to get better and better at what they are working on. Even if someones is 10 times better, that makes the other strive for something. Are you really afraid of someone doing better than you?And on that note, I'd actually prefer it if we didn't have duplicates of everything. Where would I draw the line if someone elses is 10 times better than the other. This is the RPF, but this is a community in the RPF and no other thread is run the way this one is.
88 pages does not make early days. As for the same book cover 5-10 times, who really gives a crap? People may find one they like better than the other. As for you not posting them all, YOU really don't get to make that decision! Simple as that!This is still early days of the thread as it is, but if we get to the point where people redesign the same book cover 5, 10 different times, I'm not going to post them all. Simple as that..
Sorry if I sound like a be-yotch, but I still run the thread =| and I'd prefer no duplicates. Not to say I won't take them as of now, but in the future I may not.
Actually this is the only one run like this. If you can locate another thread where the original poster edits the main thread to host everyones work, I'd like you to prove me wrong, and show it to me.What do you mean not "run the way this one is"?

Actually I'm the one that edits the first thread.. so technically its all about ME posting it.. unless BFD happens to post it, which sometimes happen. If people want to do it 5-10 times then I dont care, I never actually said "hey, don't redesign things people have already done." I do believe what I was getting at was "hey, if you notice it, its already been done, are you sure you want to do it". And the thread is only 5 months old. You also mentioned something about "had I looked further I would have seen multiple threads on Harry Potter." Please check the first sentence on the first post. I've contributed over 100 free paper props, and I needed a place to put all my stuff.88 pages does not make early days. As for the same book cover 5-10 times, who really gives a crap?

I think most of the thread visitors are female.How dare you say you run a thread. you are not a mod, you are a little girl that has a huge head cause a bunch of Fanboys are fawning over your artwork.
This is true... but theres a point to this thread that I think you might miss. All artwork that enters this thread goes on the front page. A front page I work really hard on, and that I work on out of the kindness of my heart. I don't have to do it. I do it, because this IS a community whether you think so or not, and these are my friends.What do you mean "take them as of now"? I can make a replica and post it in here if I want and you couldn't do a damn thing about it!
I do a lot of work on this thread.. I think I earned my right to be Queen.Your self entitlement, because you started a thread on a public message board is astounding!
When this thread was brought back the way it was, it was under the condition that I did micromanage it. Hence... once again... the fact that I place everything on the front page. As an old timer, you would know that this thread generally wouldn't be allowed... its one thread per movie. This is the exception. And I've never once said "hey don't design that." If you see my later post, I apologized for the way I replied.. new people log into this thread daily and most of them don't realize all the content is on page 1.The whole point of the RPF was to challenge people to make things, they can't find anywhere else. The reason so many of us old-timers keep getting our panties in a knot, is because of posts like yours. How about instead of micro managing this thread, you let people get on with they want to do. You know build and make stuff.
Nope.. I'm still the only one that can edit the first post. And also for the record, I didn't even design the book we were talking about.Are you afraid someone will knock it out of the ballpark and take the accolades away from you?
You weren't in the conversation with the mods and I and it had nothing to do with me being a regular member. We changed the title because people would hop onto the thread and were confused because they weren't sure if it was strictly my work or not.I would have thought you realized that you are just a regular member when the staff made you take out your name on the original thread.
Once again, I never stated they cant redo anything. I just said I didn't want tons of different copies on the front page.Anyone here still reading this, that wants to make something that is already in here, OR anywhere else on this site, have at it!
It is the only way any of us will get better at what we love to do.
Bitter old RPF'er
erm what i mean is... for example:You present some good points and I agree that Hinky is certainly very generous but I would dispute the label of 'greedy' about other prop makers who sell their work. In making accurate replicas costs are probable, commercial fonts, clipart books, printing costs, other material costs etc not to mention the time and effort put in, so would you agree it's only fair for them to charge?
Your Highness,I do a lot of work on this thread.. I think I earned my right to be Queen.
