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).

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

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

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)

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

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

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?

StratadrakeYeah, I was afraid that would happen.  I posted a topic about it here since it seems to be happening so much.  You might be able to configure your network adapter to ignore IPv6 addresses and communicate via IPv4, which solves the issue for some users.

StratadrakeIf that image is accurate, that could qualify as a copyright infringement ... however, if that is the case I would definitely need a link to where it was posted on FAC and not just a screenshot showing a side-by-side comparison.  I already checked Lucifer's gallery and found only three images, none of which are relevant.

LucifersStardust on May 9, 2016, 10:06:49 AM

LucifersStardustShe hates the fact that I have used a parody known as memes on my deviantart. My meme's are usually backed with facts of her past attitude and judging from the looks of how this is going, she really hasn't learned much from the past. you're not the first or the only person to have told her to just block/ignore me (not only myself but other people who have made parodies of her as well) but she will make double accounts just to harass the people who parody her and her artwork. I don't post these things here on FAC, because I understand that she has a problem with parodies and I know that it's risky business to begin with, hence why my piece that I actually drew depicting a parody of her entire attitude and her character was taken down. So I don't really post any of those things here on the website.

So I've noticed that Erin/Elizabeth is still wishing to harass me by making this journal:
and made a list of her enemies where apparently I've been name dropped

Stratadrake on May 11, 2016, 2:04:03 PM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeThese are things you have on your dA account?  What happens on dA stays on dA.

LucifersStardust on May 11, 2016, 3:50:34 PM

LucifersStardust on
LucifersStardustYes they are indeed on my deviantART account since I didn't wish to get into anymore trouble or disturb the princess with my rights as a human being to draw, but seeing as how one image I made sent her off the edge and a mod removed it since it appeared to be causing an issue, not that I'm mad or displeased with it, I know you guys have a job and rules to apply, however just disappointed in the fact as to how far Elizabeth is taking it and claiming that I should repent to "atone" for my sins, despite of her own sins where she titles everything in a curse word and makes journals either to harass people like myself or send death threats.
I'm so sorry that you're just another pawn to Erin/Elizabeth that she thought she could use against me to take away my freedom of speech in an attempt to stop me from doing parodies of her and the behavior she displays. This is just one of the many reasons why she has an E.D. page. Although the article is filled with satire, her behavior and the evidence of it is all based on events that took place either on deviantART and/or other websites that she's displayed them on. Thank you for being as patient as you have been within this situation, there should be more people like you and again, I'm sorry that you had to go through all that. Take care and have a good one~

CrystalizedHopeWhat did I ever do to deserve to be your enemy?...Stratadrake can clearly see the comment Lucifer made without your screenshot, as no one here has the power but Stratadrake to hide comments the comments on their profile, so it looks really childish of you to spam such nonsense. Also you're starting to cuss people out, right on a moderators profile, which will be easily seen as an offense of harassment, as for the journals you made, they are targeting and name dropping journals. Which I have high hopes that they will be removed. plus you're posting in the public, so you trying to tell people to "buzz off" isn't going to happen so easily, especially since you are causing unnecessary drama that needs to be taken care of on DEVIANTART not on FAC, seeing that Lucifer has stopped posting here and you forced them to come back, because you harassed them.

This is clearly your own fault and your own undoing. You are even sending them death threats using the links that you provided in your journals. I'm sorry Erin, but after discovering what you've been doing I have decided that I no longer wish to help you draw anything. I will do what the wise people have mentioned that I should do and that is to block you.
