WildDreams46Do you have to wait for an approval to upload your artwork on your page? Why is that?  I've been gone for a couple of months... 

Stratadrake on July 9, 2017, 9:45:54 AM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeYes and no.  The approval system is selective (and has been for some time), so some submissions require manual review while other submissions do not.

StratadrakeAh, yes, I remember processing that one.  The description seemed a little odd at first, that's why I gave it closer scrutiny.  And you did say "done by my gf" implying she was the one who produced the drawing, right?

StratadrakeUltimately, the fact is we don't have a policy on the matter of group/shared accounts.  At all.  It's uncharted territory for us; the implied rule has always been that FAC accounts are personal (limit one user) accounts and this kind of issue has basically never been raised or discussed before.  (By the way, thanks for taking time to discuss this.)

But a general rule of thumb (from our perspective) is, if you're allowed to upload work created by basically anyone, how is that different from any other image-hosting site?

thingyno rudeness but thats kinda bull crap cake making up the most dump stuff just to be right

BattouUm....No, that has been in the ToS for years, Strata isn't making anything up simply to be right. Fact of the matter here is the matter of shared accounts and actually Strata is mistaken and this has been discussed on one previous occasion many years ago. One of the primary debated elements was the fact of abuse potential. Sudden shifts in user style and skill level is one of the preliminary flags in abuse checks on this site. Having a user with regular shifts in style will cause issues with our screening process. Another issue is...well....the event of a break up. Yeah, that produces a plethora of problems with shared accounts so I am not going to go into details on that one. As for display of familial imagery, like things drawn by siblings, spouses ect who do not have accounts, it was decided many years ago that this was not permissible and that cases like that, the creating artist should create an account of their own.

However, there are concessions in the ToS for collaboration works which is what this event sounds like. Collaboration works are permitted however they need to be appropriately credited along with documentation of what part the submitting user played in the creation of the work. In this case the description simply states "above art done by my gf " which constitutes work done by another artist under the ToS and is not permissible.

Long and short, you need to document collaborations clearly in the description box provided.

StratadrakeBattou and I sometimes joke that I'm the "good cop" and he's the "bad cop".

But yeah, I agree that it's never a bad idea to take a break from a conversation and let things cool off.

StratadrakeAs a site, it is our right and privilege to set rules for what we will or will not allow for submission.  And the core underlying rules for our submission policy (the wording of which may be outdated, but nontheless) have basically never changed: Your work only, no photos, no porn, cite specific sources as used.

StratadrakeI don't have any information about that piece, for all I know it was not actually processed by site staff.

However, in the case of #853195 I can verify it was held for review based on the category you submitted it to (Tutorials).  I would have rejected it for that reason alone (but with the ability to resubmit), however I got confused as I read the description.

thingycan i do a contest on here like the old days or is that a no too ? i would love to get people on here again and make this place really cool

thats why i love this site so much fac made my dream gf come true <3

Stratadrake on February 25, 2017, 6:19:08 PM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeWhy do you think contests might not be allowed?  Users are always free to post ideas for other users to compete over.  Our forum layout has always included a section for this (though, due to IPv6 related bugs not everyone can necessarily access the forums).

DezzyHey Strata...my Username used to be Vhee and I've come back@ Problem is I can't login to the forums. I get this:

phpBB : Critical Error

Error creating new session

SQL Error : -1 ERROR: value too long for type character(8)

StratadrakeUnfortunately this is a known bug in the forums coding and we simply have no fix.  It seems related to users browsing from an IPv6 address (which you seem to be).  The forum software is supposed to be IPv6 aware, but it's really coded around IPv4 and from the SQL dump you may notice it is attempting to log an IPv6 address in a field intended exclusively for IPv4.

Dezzy on January 20, 2017, 5:27:12 PM

Dezzy on
DezzyAnd how do I fix this?

Stratadrake on January 23, 2017, 4:22:38 PM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeOne option is: you might be able to configure your wireless adapter to only use IPv4 protocols (most routers are configured to use both).

StratadrakeIt depends on the original image that was edited -- e.g. there is no rule against editing something YOU created yourself -- your work your right to do that.

This being said, editing/plaigarizing an image that was taken off somebody else's work (especially commercial work, such as anime/cartoons/etc.) is definitely not allowed here, but if you are going to report a user then we need to be able to identify the source material that was borrowed/edited from.

SailorSeiyaDigiJemOkay, I understood. I will stop bothering him.

StratadrakeIn the meantime, I have made a private staff topic to discuss the user with our other admin.  I have removed your other comments on this thread but don't worry, they are still there (and as an admin I can still see them).
