    Default RIP A&G

    REST IN PEACE
    A&G FORUM





    I just thought this place deserved a proper burial.

    I have seen some of the finest works from posters in the A&G forum and I wasn't even a poster on this forum. It seems that they've all moved on. Hopefully getting paid for their awesome talents. I was about to make a banner request, but then saw how the whole first page of threads looked and decided against it. The A&G forum was awesome with it's monthly competitions and those guys all deserve praise.

    So here's to you!

    One of the times I laughed the hardest here on PW was that graphic of AJ Styles, with Matt Striker scowling behind him

    I still remember 12-year-old me getting excited back in 2004 when I reached 40 posts and was able to use my PW vBucks to get myself a cool Jeff Hardy banner. Good times. (H)

    Here's to you, A&G.

    I never have time to make anything anymore. A stickied general A&G thread might be more useful in one of the other sub-forums instead.

    I just stopped having time to do stuff. One of my favourite times on PW was when I was A&G mod, especially that time all the heavyweights/"pros" rebelled against me and made a thread stating why I should be kicked out (apparently I didn't make enough competitions).

    It's kinda a shame A&G has been pretty much on life support for so long, but really it's people like me who are the problem. I had a lot of fun making stuff (3x Cruiserweight champion!), but it just stopped being a priority.

    I still love you, A&G. xoxo

    We're working on it.

    Anyone else have any A&G memories?

    I really think the loss of the vBucks feature hurt A&G more than any other place.

    I missed my first John Cena sig I had on here. It was fucking sweet.

    Oh and the CM Punk sig which made The Rock look Japanese as well, when receiving the GTS.

    I made banners once upon a time and even entered the comps.
    Gave up when people voted based on which PSD and brushes someone had downloaded and no-one appreciated any artistic vision.
    I used to make my own PSD's and delete backgrounds etc.

    For work I still break out Illustrator and Photoshop, more for presentations, brochures and my webpage. but am happy to farm out the hardcore design.

    I liked requesting a sig...waiting a few months...then requesting something new that i had recently become a fan of...

    Its always nice to post a thread, and get multiple banner replies, leaving me to have to choose what appeals to me most. I wish i could get my friend whomade my Taryn Terrell sig to join here.

    I remember, around 2-3 years when i was a bit more active around here back the situation was as bad. I had just started with banners, so it was just me and a few other amateurs running the show. Then,the pos started coming and everyone just forgot about us.

    Good times.

    I had the immense honor of representing this forum in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match this year. I was never an A&G guy, and was always content to either not have a sig banner or cobble together something of my own. But, naturally, everything I've ever done looked like the hackneyed scribblings of a child with his first set of crayons compared to what the master craftsmen of PW's Arts and Graphics section produced on a regular basis.

    Like I said at PW WrestleMania this year, I would love for this place to be repurposed so that we can breathe some life back into it. I don't think we have to bury it. I think we should burn it, and from the ashes of its funeral pyre it can be reborn, arise as something new and better. (Maybe something like my Forum for the Creative Arts idea, huh?)

    ... But I guess folding it into Off Topic as a stickier thread works too.

    This memory is so old school, I wonder if anyone else will remember it...but Pris used to come around and rate the work in the most hilarious possible way. It drove all the A&Gers crazy, which made it even better.

    I used to love this forum. Got me into photoshop which I then stuck with until very recently when I had a graphic design business. I've since dropped Graphic design output from my company as it wasn't as profitable as the other things we do but I still enjoy playing around with the program in my own time. I owe a lot to this sub forum.

    I came close to the cruiserweight title a few time, i remember missing out to Hazardous by one vote on one occasion! When i reached Heavyweight ability i'd dropped out of watching wrestling and didn't enter the weekly/monthly comps, I did however enter tournaments every now and then when they happened and i proudly remember beating Slick in one competition with a picture based on Clint Eastwood. Giantkilling, everyone loved it.

    I also remember 'working' for a PSD website with Hazardous, i remember sourcing pictures from Flickr to cut because nobody else seemed to have heard of that website back then so all the pictures on there were not appearing on any other PSD websites or in anyone's artwork. I still have a folder on an old external hard rive somewhere called 'pictures to cut' and its full of house show photos taken by people in the front rows and uploaded onto flickr.

    Good memories, lots of them. Thank you A&G.


    The game is about glory.

    You missed out Slick, he made me my first ever banner. It was an Owen Hart one.

    , that was ingenious! Worthy of that exclamation mark. He would request subtle changes, and, upon receiving the revised iteration....would again request a minor amendment...and so on, and so forth. Ha!

    I was drinking a lot then, so I can't exactly remember... but I feel like my time as mod here was the beginning of the end for A&G. I might've even jump-started the end. I can't really remember. Fucking blackouts.

    I will, however, always have a soft spot in my heart for those who introduced me to tennis... and namely for smigs, Slare, Archaeleus (or however the fuck he spelled it), and Bass. And maybe a few others whose names I'm embarrassed to admit are slipping my mind right now.

    Fucking blackouts.

    EDIT: Ironically enough... my wife and I are about to get back into tennis. Maybe, assuming this place isn't deader than dead by the time we've got some pieces between us, I'll post what we come up with.
