Hey all, I just thought of something that could be a really neat new feature for ATS. I was thinking about some kind of art/picture/photo section.
With all the strange and obscure topics that we sometimes cover and discuss, especially our personal experiences, it's sometimes hard to visualize
what people are talking about. I thought that maybe if someone had a really strange experience, they might be inspired to draw it somehow. This
could be about someone's weird dreams, a strange crypto creature they saw or spirit or something like that. I know there has to be some artistic
people on here or some people who are good at illustrating events. So if your artsy and creative, or wanna visualize something you're trying to
describe for the benefit of others, this would be a good section. Bobthebuilder and his encounter with that "gnome" thing comes to mind.
one knew if he was on drugs or really saw some little guy on his foot. Well, with this section, he could help us all out with a pic. (Even though I
think a pic of a huge bong would show up)
And it wouldn't always have to be drawings, our own photos that contain any bizarre things we were lucky enough to catch could be part of it too. I
guess, in short, just a sort of way to get some visual elements on the site.
Also, take the topic of aliens. Everyone who's interested could submit their own drawing/artwork of what they think a reptilian/grey/any species
looks like. I know I would like to. I know that for me, when people talk about all these different aliens, (aside from greys) I have no idea what
these things look like. So aside from being creative, it could be informational for those who ahve no idea what these things look like. Kinda like a
Last, this could also be used for points. We could have weekly contests of who sent in the best picture or photo. There could be maybe a few
sub-categories. You could win points or some other type of prize.
Importantly though, we would have to divide this whole picture/art/visual into two sections. One that is just artistic or creative, and the other for
more accurate and factual pictures so people don't get confused between what is just fun and what is accurate. Anyway, this idea can be developed
further and there can be lots of possibilities. What do you guys think? I figure, if there's enough support for this, Simon and whoever could and
would make it happen. I think it would enrich ATS a lot. Thanks for the opinions.
