DezzyHey 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)

INSERT INTO phpbb_sessions (session_id, session_user_id, session_start, session_time, session_ip, session_page, session_logged_in, session_admin) VALUES ('cba9ddf7d7517b4f74508f9166aa92b8', 121959, 1484873992, 1484873992, 'a2a000000', 0, 1, 0)

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.

DezzyAnd how do I fix this?

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

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

DezzyThat worked thank you :)

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.

SailorSeiyaDigiJem on January 8, 2017, 4:14:31 PM

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).

Lulu1988Hey this is Angel88 I had to create a new account because my old account got erased or deleted or whatever I don't know but I would like to know why my account was deleted or erased

Lulu1988I was trying to login to post some more pictures I did and it keep telling me that this page has been deleted or band I never got a notice about my artwork being banned before

Stratadrake on December 27, 2016, 4:37:05 PM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeWell, it does not appear to be an explicit ban, but I don't have any further information.

Lulu1988 on December 28, 2016, 11:24:10 AM

Lulu1988So there's nothing you can do to get back my account

StratadrakeUnfortunately, no, we don't have any tools built to do that.

ajsuperhey how do you upload some art..

StratadrakeWhen you are logged in (and you are), near the upper right corner of the screen, next to your username and avvie there is a button labelled 'submit'.  Hover over it to see the options.  Note that our submission process is designed with desktops/laptops (keyboard and mouse) in mind and as such may not necessarily be tablet/smartphone compatible.

MrSquiggles1993Hello I'm new here. I have uploaded a Drawing & it still pending approval, this is taking a whole day now what is wrong with it?

Stratadrake on November 5, 2016, 6:48:37 PM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeNaturally, the approval panel relies on FAC staff actively reviewing it from time to time.  We currently have just two users doing this (myself and Battou), and between us we probably review it maybe 5-6 times a week.  So while we can generally process something within the same day, sometimes things pile up for longer before we review the queue.

For your submission #852086, I've processed it for now but I will warn that image files exceeding certain sizes (such as width, height, and/or total megapixels) are always held for manual review by AP staff, even if it would otherwise have been processed automatically.  And while the exact threshold varies depending on the nature of the image, who is on duty (and how lenient we feel) at the time, in general, if your image file exceeds 4-5 megapixels you can expect to receive a rejection message about it.

Generally speaking, it is not good practice to submit original-full-resolution scans/photos of your artwork to the Internet -- you should keep those on your personal storage (local backup or private cloud storage) and compile secondary copies that have been resized smaller so that they can be viewed at 100% size on a typical display resolution (usually less than 2000px wide).

MrSquiggles1993 on November 7, 2016, 6:20:38 PM

MrSquiggles1993 on
MrSquiggles1993Oh okay I understand now.
Whoops, I didn't know that was a big one. I thought I put the small one up, sorry about that.
Next time I'll make a small one.

SailorSeiyaDigiJemHey! How come Ajsuper can't post his artworks on FanArt-Central?

Stratadrake on August 27, 2016, 5:49:29 PM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeI actually do not know what you're talking about.  I just checked the queue and there was nothing from him on it...

SailorSeiyaDigiJem on August 30, 2016, 8:39:00 AM

SailorSeiyaDigiJem on
SailorSeiyaDigiJemSorry to bother you. I guess he don't know how to submit his artworks to Fanart-Central.

AwesomeLightwing6May I request something? I was wondering if you could put a 'recent blogs' thing on the front page so people will see them. I was requesting because I put up a blog to help fight racism.

SailorSeiyaDigiJem on August 26, 2016, 2:02:37 PM

SailorSeiyaDigiJem on
SailorSeiyaDigiJemI like the idea of "recent blogs" in the front page but blogs are not available to comments(In my opinion, I find it pretty meaningless)

LalondeyHey sorry to bother you but? Is this ok if I am allowed to upload Base art?

Stratadrake on July 9, 2016, 5:12:26 PM

StratadrakeWhat do you mean?

Lalondey on July 10, 2016, 10:42:52 PM

Lalondey on
Lalondeysorry for the late reply :(
Like these base dolls here if i am allowed to upload some bases that i did and sorry i uploaded The Susan, Man and Vanessa base :(.

Stratadrake on July 14, 2016, 9:41:13 PM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeSo to make sure I'm understanding this correctly, you mean artwork created from/using said bases?

For a quick compare-contrast, we do not allow 'generator' or 'dollmaker' type submissions -- defined by the generator providing most or ALL of the components/resources present in the final result, with no actual artistic effort (i.e. production) from the end user.

If you have (i.e. can cite) permission to use a base image/work to modify and create a work of your own from, it does not matter whether the base image is traditional or digital in nature.  Conceptually, this is no different from an explicit collaboration between two (or more) artists, therefore the same ground rules apply -- which is basically to cite a URL to the page of the original image.  As long as we can verify that, it's usually pretty easy to tell when the artist created that image with this purpose in mind.

Lalondey on July 15, 2016, 10:53:14 PM

Lalondey on
LalondeyI think so and alright.

Stratadrake on July 16, 2016, 8:04:49 PM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeOn an aside, I myself have three pieces in gallery that are traditional colorings of lineart created by other artists. :)

Falconlobo on July 10, 2016, 7:36:51 PM

Falconloboshe meant are base related arts allowed on here

SweetxinsanityxSarahStand by just in case he tries to get past the IP block through the millions of computers from the computer business that he owns as he brags. Hope he enjoys giving those computers viruses by downloading those proxies.

StratadrakeThe steps posted in the forum topic are not in reference to your wi-fi hotspot but the wi-fi settings on your computer and OS.

StratadrakeExact steps will vary according to your operating system and whether you have the needed level of access to them.  Out of curiosity, what OS do you run?
