Actually, my thread has been "featured" for a long while now. I wasn't even a mod and didn't have access to it back when it first got featured. And I have asked Abnegation, the guy who managed it and did all the CSS for the flashy buttons, to change it to someone else's. It has been a while since I did that too, to be honest. He just didn't change it and I wouldn't wanna risk spoiling the amazing coding of those awesome buttons by messing with the code myself.
Though honestly, you should really do some homework before accusing people of anything like that. I found it a little offensive. Your previous VM had something which offended me as well "Oh well, I was so impressed with GFX because I thought you guys made your own art to "GFXize" - even though quite a lot of us work on stocks, graphic designing is still something which takes a lot of time and effort. By saying that, you are downplaying the importance of graphic artists. You can have your opinion, alright. But you should definitely try it out yourself before you utter statements like those. Because graphic designing is anything but easy.
Oh well, I was so impressed with GFX because I thought you guys made your own art to "GFXize". Like you, I have no means to make digital art although it'll be a dream come true if I did. The best I can do with a mouse is those two Pokémon in my sig.
