Suggestion: A way for LST to save a little dough

Recommended Posts

As I was perusing the forum, I found myself in the Initiation section and made a comment on someone's thread about not posting a new thread just for the sake of showing off a new tattoo, mentioning that there would probably be hundreds of threads about new tattoos when we have one thread that has served the community perfectly well for that purpose. And then my brain got to thinking, "well, what would happen if there actually were hundreds of threads for basically the same function? probably would take up a ton of server space, and be really expensive to maintain."

And then upon going back into the Initiation forum, I noticed the 51 pages of threads. Now feel free to disregard this suggestion, but I think it would probably help with the site's expenses if every thread in that section of the forum were deleted after 60 days. Or perhaps deleted after 60 days of inactivity. Obviously, not every person who signs up here ends up sticking around. Which is fine! To me, it seems a little unnecessary to archive threads that say basically the same thing, by people who have already left and by people who have become active members. Also, with fewer threads to sort through, the ones actively present in the sub-forum reclaim their relevance.

Anyhow, just an idea. Thoughts?

Hey - thanks for the suggestion!

The overhead for having those threads is relatively nominal actually, so from a cost perspective, there isn't much of a motive to delete threads. We also don't want to mess with people's post count and what not. ;)

Anyways - thanks again for thinking of ways to improve the forum - we ALWAYS want to hear what you are thinking on that topic, so please keep the ideas coming!

Cheers

    • If they can completely cover a black tattoo with a different design, I'd think covering yellow and orange with a darker red would be simple.  The color probably will be different than ones done over bare skin, but should just add depth. Any decent artist should be able to easily handle this. Also, welcome.
    • Hello all! Stoked to be to be a part of this awesome community after lurking around for a bit haha  I joined this forum because of all the great advice and support people have been receiving in their post. You guys rock!   Recently, I just got a dragon done with mainly black scales, with yellow/gold and orange to compliment the scales. However, I realized that I don't really like the yellow and orange and want to do a red to dark red or maroon dragon. Is it possible to tattoo dark red or maroon over the yellow/gold and orange? How complex would it be? Any cons to this? Another thing to mention is that not all scales are fully colored in with the yellow and orange (all the black is done already). Would the colors be slightly different for the ones I'm replacing over vs the ones that haven't been filled in yet? Thanks!  
    • Hey.  I have this on my hand and I want to blend it with the rest of the tattoo. There will be some more tattoos in the white bits above it but I need an idea on how I can merge the armband with the rest through a background or something. And also I'd like to have some sort of an ending on my forearm. I was thinking of a mandala design but not sure. Some gradient from the armband down into the mandala tattoo. If you have any suggestions please let me know.  https://imgur.com/a/AICbRo1
