new applicants

So, we discussed it and decided we'd only be accepting four members. This isn't like one of our regular calls. My intention was to have a scouting only member call. But, I decided I'd put an application out there and see what happens. We got a couple of hits and I decided to post them here and let you guys take a look.

The thing I really want you to understand is that anyone can have an opinion, anyone can give criticism, but if your response isn't developed; you can't expect your advice to be taken seriously.

Usually our application process is very simple, fill out the application, complete the challenge, and then wait for either an acceptance letter, or a rejection letter. Only, most members aren't apart of the process for accepting new members. I want everyone to be apart of it.

The reason why is most of the applicants urbnfiends received is because of the tag (urbnfiends.(yournamehere) The tag we've been asking you all to put on your graphic since the beginning. I completely understand that some of the applicants may be someone you've already been working with and I believe that's all the more reason to include you in it.

Overlooking some of the members, and past conflicts with reviewing we won't be doing a blend challenge for all the applicants. We, however, we look into each applicant and decide what we're not seeing in their preview graphics and give them a chance to show us in their graphic challenge.

So, in the comments I want to leave your opinion of our new application process.

Anjel, devonashley, jada, criss

Anjel has been making graphics for over a period of 5 months. Devon Ashley has been making graphics on and off for a couple of years. Criss been making graphics for five years and believes her displacement and space-age look is what will most help her to stand out.

I scouted one person in particular Scout Number one. Her opening graphic really caught. The simplicity of it caught me off guard, and I haven't been apply to forget about it since.
This is the second scout
two. tell me what you think.....

coming along nicely...updated

I've really excited to say that we are coming along very well. I knew we wouldn't be able to recover 100%, but with the members that we still have trust that we have only been affected in size not talent.

Niqua, who initially created urbnfiends has been on a prolonged hiatus. Although she isn't currently with us she is to be well-respected among all members current and future.

To those of you who responded promptly to my email, I do thank you. I'm on a mission to have us set up so that we will be able to close 2009 with a viewing of each members recurring progress.

I am currently scouting members. If you all would like to help or take a look at our most recent applications let me know and I'll send that information over for you.

The following members have been verified on urbnfiends roster:


Members whose status is pending:


Members whose status will not be updated include the following:

you guys are still around?

I'm sorry about the closing of public views of this site. Some of you have made me aware that you have misplaced your log in information to this blog. But, if you haven't noticed by now I always close the public viewing when we have something big going on.

So right about now I'm figuring out how I'm going to keep up managing urbnfiends and school. I'm going to begin attending The University of Mississippi on January 15th and I plan to be resident assitant and a conference assitant which means I'll be in school year round.

I do plan to do more than a little bit of networking while I'm there, so there's that also.

The list of production members that you see on this blog to the right is going to decrease. I'll be removing some old members that I haven't heard from since before my laptop crisis.

I am currently advertising membership openings on the bbs reloaded site, and I'll began scouting for members on Monday. I don't plan on adding any new members until my current membership list is verfied. I've come in contact with a good amount of you and I'm so excited about you still being on urbnfiends roster.

If you know me then you know I have alot of ideas. And, my plan is to get this thing done as fast as possible so we can bring 2010 in right.

If your wondering is there anything you can do to help; the answer is yes. Urbnfiends does need help with scouting for new members, and if there are any members whose contact information has changed over the year and you have it I need it.

Gracias para su ayuda mis amores que aprecio todo que usted ha hecho. urbnfiends no sería nada más que un golpe del viento sin su dedicación dulce.


Thanks for your help my loves I appreciate everything you have done. urbnfiends would be nothing more than a blow of the wind without your sweet dedication.
