      MYGNRFORUM Theme Template Update - Additional Features   09/09/2017

      Happy to announce that the upgrades have almost been completed and the new custom theme is available for all users. There are still a few bugs to work out which we hope to have solved over the next day or two.   To use the new template, click on Themes at the bottom left side of the page and click on MYGNRFORUM (New): It is now set to default in case you did not previously changed themes. A new feature of this update are the new reactions to posts.  By click on the like button, users have a choice of five different reactions (two of our own design): Remember, if you GNR like something, make it a dolphin like! Please use the Ask Staff Anything thread with any questions or concerns. Thanks to everyone for your patience and cooperation over the last couple of weeks while we got this done.

  1. Patience - Not really hidden, I could figure it out even with the low res pic from instagram I feel like we don't get to see the lower case "GNR Typeface" very often
  2. Hit the nail on the head right here. On both points! I could put up a Little Rock litho and ask $99,999 for it, or whatever the upper limit is for items on Ebay - doesn't mean someone's gonna Buy It Now. Not to mention he's got "Make an Offer" as an option, so it's natural to go over the top with the BIN price. But also like you said, if someone wants to spend their money on cigarettes or heroin or lottery tickets or smartphones or muscle cars or donate it to charity - as long as it's their money, they can do whatever they want with it.
  3. Even has his name on it and done by the same artist. I think it's safe to say a it's not an issue of royalties.
  4. Wait, are you actually being serious about this? I thought you were just joking around. Firstly, Slash's likeness is in plenty of other lithos. Many of them by Arian Buhler, the same artist who did the NYC 3 litho - He's in Coachella 2, Osaka, Perth Bunyip, London 1, Vienna. And secondly, you wouldn't think the addition of the exact top hat design that Slash wears on an officially approved piece of GNR merchandise wouldn't constitute 'using his likeness'? Come on, guys. Don't read too much into it. Arian Buhler probably just preferred to make it look more like Bill the Butcher and that's all there is to it.
  5. I see no problem in this setup seeing as there are lithos reserved for ticket-holding fans inside the venue. The problem is that they didn't appear to have a restriction on how many you could buy inside the venue, so they still managed to screw over the average fan.
  6. Personally I think it's a great idea - but 1 per person is a bit TOO strict. Especially if they're not going to have ANY restriction for people inside. But generally speaking, it's probably a step in the right direction. Really ought to limit the people inside too though. Max 2 outside and max 3 inside? I think that'd be fair.
  7. Great colors, in my opinion!
  8. Everybody has their personal preference for sure. But 100% Sao Paulo is in my Top 10 at least. Two thumbs up to the artist
  9. The ink smells fresh and they were late arriving to the concert - the merch stalls didn't get them until pretty much GNR went on stage. I'm guessing it might have been a rush job haha
  10. Santiago litho Sorry for the bad photo - the flash washed out the pic but it's an Andean condor over the Andes (duh). Again, doesn't seem to be numbered.
  11. Are you kidding me? It's fucking AMAZING It's EASILY the best of the lot since the end of Europe. Maybe the reference is lost on some people though? The graffiti is a style unique to Brazil, called Pichacao: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pichação Nevertheless, Sao Paulo is one of my favorite designs without a doubt.
  12. You should get matching frames! I think it would look even more kickass with matching frames. Actually... now that I think about it - did you get the Slane frame custom made? Because it looks like it fits PERFECTLY and the European lithos were a strange, non-standard size. I spent hours trying to figure out what paper size they used for Europe and concluded it's not a standard paper or frame size. It's honestly not that much smaller than the US standard 18" x 24" so it's not really noticeable if you put a Euro litho into an 18" x 24" frame (as long as the backing board is the same color as the frame), but your frame seems to match the size perfectly. If you didn't get it custom made, please let me know what size frame you bought (and from where)!
