    • Official PULL Discord! (Updated)   01/14/19

      Hi Everyone!  We've opened up an official discord. In order to join, you need to have posted at least 20 comments on PULL! This is to make sure we don't let in any flakes with ulterior motives. After joining, you will receive a DM with instructions on how to get verified! Also, your registration date needs to be earlier than December 2018 so that we don't get a ton of people signing up only to join the Discord but without actually contributing to PULL. Drop by and chat here: https://discord.gg/KDF2kt5 Also, we need to upgrade our server in the very near future. PULL grows bigger by the day (yay!) but  to handle the load, we need upgrades. For less than the cost of what you spend on Netflix, we can continue to host your content. Whether it's $1 or $5 a month, all gifts are appreciated. Please consider giving here: https://www.patreon.com/PULL We've also added a gofundme link: https://www.gofundme.com/PULLnet Thank you for your continued love and support!

WANTED: Artist for 2019 banner

Not trying to be a contrarian jerk, but asking for free art is very bad praxis. If you guys can't afford to pay an artist, I'm sure crowdfunding is a possibility. I'd be happy to kick a few dollars towards a new banner, and between all the active users of this forum, I'm sure we could gather $50-60 to actually pay someone for their hard work. :alpacashocked:

 

I agree. I have a friend who would do it for 65 dollars but I doubt you'd be able to find someone who'd make a high quality banner for free.

hello, I had to edit this with a track pad since i can't find my drawing tablet cord, but here's an idea for the updated banner!

personally, the original lineup is iconic despite newcomers not knowing who they are. my idea is having the current snowflake lineup in the background, scaled down. the new lineup would be in the foreground, with a spotlight on them. (one of them could have an edited highlight/facetune from the spotlight LMAO)

for the title, it would be lowered to the bottom of the image. but yeah! feel free to take this idea and run with it!!!

i was thinking that there could be a poll to vote who's on it. Or even two ambiguous snowflakes drawn to imitate our various "anime ahegao cringe", "gangnam unnies", and instagram photoshopping  threads would be cool to see as well!

Wow I had a little bit of trouble posting, it would only give me an option to post media. Fixing it through this edit.

I haven't drawn in a few months due to some situations at home and work but this is about whee my skill level hovers. I can do more cartoony images as well.

I don’t think it’s a misdeed not to offer pay in this case- We know that it costs money to keep the site up and the owners aren’t swimming in cash to spend on this project so to speak. Volunteers are free to sign up, right?

I would also be willing to draw but I’m afraid my happy anime style does not do the site justice !

PULL is paid for out of pocket and many users have offered to help with our costs. Donating art is another way of giving back. I'm not gonna patronize anyone with offers of exposure, but commissioning artists while we're already bleeding money would be counterproductive to the existence of the site. Users have been asking for a banner update for a long time, so if any users want to contribute to that update, that's great. Otherwise the banner will just stay as is, which is fine too. This is a voluntary contribution just like the rotating banners or thread pictures on lolcow.farm. We can definitely share a donation link like Paypal, Ko-fi or Gofundme as a tip jar for the artist though. Alternatively, we can consider the banner costs in our upcoming Patreon overhaul and allow for an art budget for banners and other PULL art.

Very cool artists we have in PULL :alpacacrush: I would draw if I have the time, but too bad my working hours + transportation time takes up my whole day for the month. I'll still check back and give reps when I'm free though

WOW. Did not realize people were so talented here, AMAZING submissions already guys!

As Rhea said, I'd be happy to share a donation link for contributing artists. I don't think an artist should go completely uncompensated. 

There was previously a vote for who could be on the banner, but we can have another. 

Let's keep future posts for strictly submissions so this thread isn't clogged up! I appreciate the wishes of being able to draw, don't worry about it! I appreciate you all for just contributing to the site. :alpacacrush: If any of you are afraid for your anonymity, or want to submit things that exist elsewhere, feel free to PM me.
