User Groups At EuphoricFX

Postby Lucan63 » Aug Sun 07, 2011 8:15 pm

For new members and others who don’t know what user groups here are or how they work, I am posting this announcement outlining artist progression and what the other groups are, and how to join or be inducted into them.

All members of these groups will be given unlimited downloads from all areas of the site for the duration of their group membership.


New members who desire to become Contributors you need to understand that just popping in your first day and adding a few resources will not get you free download access here, we are looking for 'regular' contributors who 'want' to become a part of our community here, so be prepared to prove your intent by contributing quality resources regularly over time to show us you intend to do more than just 'grab and go'. Sorry but we have seen too much of that over the years it will take time to get approved for Contributor status and once you do you will need to continue to support the site to keep it.

Note: If the bulk of your uploads are labels, then you will be considered a Label Designer and only be eligible for admission to the Designer, Resident and Label Pro Artist Groups.



Artist Groups

Designers Group

"Designer"
Entry level for the group, if you show incentive in contributing to the site quality work on a consistent basis you may be selected to join the Designers Group and listed as a Designer.

"Approved Designer"
If you are a designer you may based on forum participation and custom art uploads be moved up to this rank.

"Preferred Designer"
If you are a approved designer you may based on length of membership, forum participation and custom art uploads and download ratio be moved up to this rank.


EFX Artists Group

"EFX Artist"
Next, after a probationary period, determined on an artist by artist basis, because some of you are known and some of you are not, you may be selected to join the EFX Artists Group.

"EFX Maven Artist"
Then after another probationary period, based on total uploads and/or continued forum participation you will be raised to the rank of EFX Maven Artist within the EFX Artists Group, this is an important step to becoming a Resident Artist.


Resident Artists Group

"Resident Artist"
Last, if the site Administration here determines that you regularly contribute quality original work and the time for this to happen will be some later time after you have risen to the rank of EFX Maven Artist, then you may be selected to join the Resident Artists Group, in addition you can be nominated by a Resident or Design Pro on the Site to be considered for Resident Artist promotion, if that happens and provided you meet the minimum requirements (determined by site Administration), then a vote among all current Residents and Design Pros will happen with the majority opinion deciding your admission.

Note: If you are considered a Label Designer then you will need 2000 uploads minimum to be considered for a Resident Label Artist position from there your rank will not change again until you qualify for Label Pro status.

"Senior Resident"
If you make covers and if you remain active in the RA group, have been a member on site for 2 years and reach 500 uploads you will be ranked as a "Senior Resident" this is an automatic upgrade based on uploads and length of membership.

"Elite Resident"
Then after becoming a senior resident who has reached 750 uploads you will be ranked as an "Elite Resident" this is an automatic upgrade based on uploads and length of membership.

"Premier Resident"
Then after becoming a elite resident who has reached 1000 uploads and membership for 3 years you will be ranked as an "Premier Resident" this is an automatic upgrade based on uploads and length of membership.

Note: In addition any member of the Resident Artists Group may suggest inclusion of any current EFX Artist in he group then if approved by EFX administration a vote to confirm them will be held.


Design Pros Group
Image

"Design Pro"
Finally, if you are a Premier Resident who uploads 1500+ covers/labels to this site, you will be moved to the Design Pros Group, this is an automatic upgrade based on uploads because if your in the Residents Group your work already speaks for itself.

"Design Pro 5K"
Design Pro with 5000 uploads.

"Design Pro 10K"
Design Pro with 10000 uploads.

Note: Any representative EFX member who wins a Battle Royal title will be automatically upgraded to the Design Pro Group, winning that title is no small feat and should merit such inclusion. There maybe other situations where members would warrant inclusion in this group, the Administration at EFX will make those decisions based on what in it's own judgment serves the membership and the site's best interests. In addition any member of the Design Pro Group may suggest inclusion of any current resident in he group then if approved by EFX administration a vote to confirm them will be held.


Label Pros Group
Image

"Label Pro"
Lastly, if you are a Resident Label Artist who uploads 6000+ labels to this site, you will be moved to the Design Pros Group, this is an automatic upgrade based on uploads because if your in the Residents Group then your work already speaks for itself.

"Contributor"
If you have shown incentive in contributing to the site quality resources for 30-90 days as a Trial Contributor then you be moved from probationary status and made a full Contributor an listed as a "Contributor" then all Download limits will be lifted.

"Ace Contributor"
If you have been made contributor for 120 days and you have 1000 or more quality resource uploads and have been consistent with your contributions then your rank will be upgraded to that of an Ace Contributor. After that upgrade you  will need to continue to contribute on a regular basis or you will fall back to Contributor status.

"Top Contributor"
If you have been made Ace Contributor for 6 months and you have 2500 or more quality resource uploads and have been consistent with your contributions then your rank will be upgraded to that of an Top Contributor.

"Resource Hound"
If you are an Top Contributor with a minimum of both 12 months as an active contributor and a sizable quantity of quality resource uploads to your credit we will consider you for an upgrade to Resource Hound, this is a serious upgrade so it will not be done without due consideration.

In closing...

Please do not PM staff or post in the forums requesting status changes for artist groups or ranks, we monitor the activities here and will select members based on our own judgments.

Notes here:

1. Failure to stay active on the site will be just cause to have your group status revoked.

2. Starting to mass download items will be just cause to have your group status revoked immediately.

3. Getting to far out of ratio on "uploads vs downloads", then we may revoke your group status.

If your group status is revoked for any of the above reasons, then it will be much harder to get that back, just putting that out so there is no confusion on that if it happens to you.


Final decision on all group memberships and ranks is at the discretion of EFX administration and subject to change at any time for any reason.

Thanks to all the artists for selecting EFX as a host for your work, and to others for your valuable contributions & site participation.
