Layout updated! Let me know what you think.

ALSO:
This doesn't have to be run by just me; I've added a page for submissions and if anyone wants to become a member and gain posting and/or administrative rights, let me know!

I've also found that the former Pastel Forum tumblr (previously run by Jatsko and thought to have been deleted) still exists but is inactive for obvious reasons and unlikely to be revived. I will be reblogging appropriate content from there onto the Void Scan blog, so VS will also serve as a continuation of the PF blog.

One last thing:
Maybe someone who has more followers from this community on tumblr could sort of help spread the page? That would be a great help!

So, first a reminder for everyone to look at the first page to see the work of Robert L Wood, who designed the karma portal stand that appears in JKO.

Next, more details on the new kps I found:

Done by Professor Juan Carlos Caballero-Perez:

"Bracelet II"
Steel, Copper, White Sapphires
2015

It's a freestanding floor sculpture that's probably just over 6 feet tall. Here's more of his work:

So we have one karma portal stand from real life, and Mat has made a point to introduce new lore with the evolution of KPSs:

In s10 we see clearly first-ge stabilisers, with wire and parts sticking on the outside. The stabiliser created by Robert L. Wood is from second or even third generation. Slick, smooth, does the job even when weathered by time.


So I wonder if we keep collecting these, will we see these "future generations" crop up more often in the subnet...? Worth a shot.

(I'll go take a front shot of it and post it later)

Is Mat making KPs of cool real life sculptures that the Submafia find? or does he find them himself, like he's always done?

The one in JKO is an outdoor sculpture from my previous college that I made a short video about and he noticed it and decided to do something with it. Idk if it's going to develop into a trend or not, but he did insert that piece of lore about the KP evolution, so may as well run with it and see what happens.

And if he doesn't, well, in that case I still posted something in this thread, which isn't used nearly as much as it should be.

I think it is a bit arogant to think matt will do something. Getting a room in the Subverse is one of the greatest honors a pastel lander can have. I have asked in the past for a room which was arrogant to do so. Matt should decide.

Man, I've seen you make that comment before, but it really isn't such a big deal.

There are theories in SubVerse from people who just registered to post a theory in the 1st theory-call thread and then disappeared forever. There are also people who were asking Mateusz for a location for a long time, then got it in the end (like WorldisQuiet for example). On the other hand, people who have contributed a lot (like Ehnicambus and you) still don't have one. It's not really merit or honor that gets you a room in SubVerse, rather luck and timing.

So I don't think people are somehow being arrogant for asking for, wishing for, or sometimes even suggesting the possibility of a new location - as long as they're not pestering Mateusz about it, or don't accept him declining the offer. It's like playing the lottery; sometimes you win it, sometimes you don't. It can be stupid to ask the god of luck to give you a winning ticket, it can be naive to hope that you're going to win, it is correct to notice a trend in the latest winners, but none of this is arrogant.

I understand, but disagree. :)
PS: I did not contribute much.

Ok then, admittedly this is just my view on it.
