StratadrakeThank you for spamming.  Have a week off, courtesy of site staff. :)

Keep it up and the next stop is permaban, sorry.

nbluueHi there,

A bug I have just recently noticed regarding the forums is an inability to login when already logged in on the main site. It proposes a SQL query issue - not sure if that's your game, but it could be considered a bug.

By the way, I've not been an active user on this site for ten years - it's interesting to see that you're still in practice as admin.

Stratadrake on September 22, 2017, 5:08:39 PM

StratadrakeThis is, unfortunately, a known bug which is mostly related to the use of IPv6 addresses (such as yours).  There is no fix.

matthespeedstarI forget, is there a rule against posting stuff to advertise commission art? Like this here (I'll delete this later)

StratadrakeI believe this is one of those where there is no rule against it technically, but it is generally frowned upon to do it much.

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 

Battou on February 25, 2017, 6:17:20 PM

Battou on
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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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

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.

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:
http://www.fanart-central.net/user/Elizabeth-Fan/blogs/17054/MESSAGE-TO-LUCIFERSTARDUST
and made a list of her enemies where apparently I've been name dropped

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.

TribalCoyoteHello, I haven't been here in a while..But could you please tell Elizabeth-Fan to stop posting stuff on my profile. She's already made a hate list of users from various websites and posted it on here, It's becoming an annoyance and it's becoming border line harassment. 

Stratadrake on May 11, 2016, 2:07:24 PM

StratadrakeJudging by comments from other users it seems to have gone well beyond crossing that line.

TribalCoyote on May 11, 2016, 2:12:26 PM

TribalCoyoteYeah...Erin tends to take things beyond too far. She always does this whenever she comes to a new art site. She's been permanently banned from dA, Weasyl, SoFurry, Fur Affinity, Scratch, the Wiki website, and probably other sites. I was surprised by how long you managed to keep calm with her.

Stratadrake on May 11, 2016, 2:19:38 PM

StratadrakeIt had been a while since the last conflagration.  If she wants to put that behind her and start over on a second chance she needs to keep the past IN the past.

TribalCoyote on May 11, 2016, 2:25:50 PM

TribalCoyote on
TribalCoyoteStrata, people have tried time and time again to help her or advised her to do that. She never listens, hence why she got banned. She feels the need to make people suffer over childish things and demands to get her way.

StratadrakeYou reported this before, but our stance on the matter hasn't changed any.  If she drew the artwork, it does not qualify as (and cannot be reported for) image theft.  Likewise, if she properly credited the character's creator/owner, then it does not qualify as character theft/plagiarism.

And ... IIRC, you reported this piece before for basically the same reason, which usually means you'll just get the same answer all over again.  If there haven't been any new developments, you won't get a new verdict.

StratadrakeUnfortunately we basically can't help with this.  The version of phpbb we run the forums on is so old nobody will offer support for it anymore.  It is SUPPOSED to be IPv6-compatible, but without actually taking a look at the code the site forums actually run on (which was slightly modified from stock phpBB2 already) we can't really investigate it ourselves either.

For what it's worth, your comment was indeed posted from an IPv6 address and that seems distinctly related to the error.

Morpher on February 17, 2016, 3:26:10 PM

Morpher on
MorpherIt's odd cause I've never had or seen this problem until just yesterday. I figured it was a something to do with the forum itself but, you mentioned something about an IPv6 address, how would that potentially cause this error? (Still have no access due to this error continuing to pop up.)

Stratadrake on February 18, 2016, 7:15:25 PM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeIPv6 addresses are 4x as long as IPv4 addresses.  If phpBB2 doesn't recognize IPv6 properly and attempts to force it into a database field built for an IPv4 address only, error.

Morpher on February 19, 2016, 5:27:21 PM

Morpher on
MorpherI see. Interesting. Well it seems I'm able to log in now. Whether it was just random luck that let log in again or it was fixed by either you or Denis (which thanks is in order if that's the case.) So, thanks if that's the case. Hopefully it won't occur again.

StratadrakeWas this in the same session as that comment?  Because I notice it has an IPv4 address where your previous comments on this topic were from an IPv6 address.  Hmm....

Morpher on February 22, 2016, 1:56:33 PM

Morpher on
MorpherThat's... really odd. When I checked again for an IPv6 it's almost nonexistent. It's does indeed tell me I'm running IPv4. How strange. I wonder if my ISP provider had something to do with this.

SweetxinsanityxSarahI had someone leave two comments on my comment section which you alone can read but they said they wanted me to remove a picture? Last I checked I wasn't an admin. I mean I do come in occasionally and check on things but I'm not a staff member. Hopefully things are going well for you considering the situation at hand.

Also I got to go to a ren faire after how many years since grade school. I happened to see a dragon puppet that was blue with gold trim like a certain icon of yours. Sadly he was pushing $500 otherwise I would have gotten him and sent a picture to you. Afterall the way he was sculpted reminded me of your artstyle.

Stratadrake on October 12, 2015, 7:06:40 PM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeAh, I see those are two pictures I am aware of currently.  I am still not sure whether to draw the line -- as I said on one of them, if it's judged to be hate/attack art then it is getting removed; if it's not, it falls under artistic speech and can stay.

SweetxinsanityxSarah on October 14, 2015, 8:41:43 PM

SweetxinsanityxSarah on
SweetxinsanityxSarahGiven the situation at hand, it's disguised as artistic speech but it is attacking someone. I would say remove the picture and all signs of the fight to keep it from escalating and put them both in a corner. Also keep in mind to onlookers I'm a neutral party. I'm not taking sides I just want the fight to go away. There's something called the block button folks, use it.

StratadrakeGuys, if I may point out that posting images on your profile page is NOT governed by the same terms as your gallery submissions are required to follow.  A.k.a. claims of "art theft" do NOT necessarily apply here, users are generally allowed to post whatever images they wish.

This being said, the image in question is clearly causing some issues with other users, so I am going to remove it for now.

Stratadrake on September 14, 2015, 6:43:53 PM

StratadrakeThis is just an FYI -- as you can see from the posts below, I've taken the liberty of culling several comments from my page here. I can still access them (via staff tools) when I need to. The situation surrounding them is not considered resolved, however.

StratadrakeAutism isn't one specific disorder so much as an entire class of disorders.  It has degrees and variations and so forth.

And, unfortunately, learning disabilities (of any sort) and short tempers seem to coincide with each other.

CharadeThat actully makes a lot of sence! I'd have to agree with drake, though. Don't break the rules of the site over it. Maybe you could confide and vent to a friend instead? Or air greivances is a less intrusive way then spam? 

I know now first hand it can be hard to wrap your mind around a neruological disorder and controll it at time. I think that being able to vent to someone could help.

Stratadrake on September 15, 2015, 6:00:57 PM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeYeah, you do seem pretty quick to go hot-headed.  Sometimes it can help to just put the computer down and walk away for awhile, then return to it later (such as the next day) with a cool head.

In my case, it probably helps I was born the middle child in my family, a social position that favors being calm and cool-headed.

As for the subject of autism ... I personally believe the condition is over-diagnosed and over-medicated, but that's not important because I have no practical use for the lay opinion.  And heck, I probably meet half the criteria for some degree of it myself....

a23spyroWhy aren't people simply blocking her? Some of these people actually knew what she was like before she came on here, so like me I blocked her right away. Are people actually waiting for her to make the wrong move so that they have an excuse to get her banned? I'm not sticking up for her, I know what she's done and it's disgusting, but it doesn't seem right to just let her comment on something or someone's artwork, knowing what will happen down the road. By blocking her, she can't express her anger at all towards anyone! Maybe it will help her cool down eventually, I don't know. 

Stratadrake on September 15, 2015, 6:04:27 PM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeEveryone has their good and bad days.  While I was looking through her comment history there I did find some comments that did not provoke arguments, and a few comments that were even positive in tone (and I'm talking "top-level" comments, not replies).  I made sure to review each page to catch the context/conversation in which they were posted, too.

Ultimately, the matter of blocking is a personal preference.  Some people are quick to block, sometimes you block someone pre-emptively, and some people (like me) prefer to avoid blocking.  (And I'm not saying that just because I have a mod/admin position; my blocklists on dA and FA are virtually empty too.)

a23spyro on September 15, 2015, 6:30:58 PM

a23spyro on
a23spyroWell, for me, blocking or disabling the comments prevents hate speech. Not necessarily because of bashing on my content or me. I can handle that. But it’s to prevent hate speech against individuals in the comment section, especially if it’s a child. Some person might come along, say something mean, and then I’m liable for it because I should’ve been there to stop that from happening. Now, there’s an emotionally scarred person that might commit suicide or something and that could get me into trouble. There have been cases of that, too. That’s just one of the reasons why I would block somebody whom I’ve seen multiple times say things that cause people to lose their heads (not in a literal sense). I don’t know, I’m just being cautious. But, in all honesty, I hope Erin grows into a better person

StratadrakeOn the one hand, parody is a protected form of free speech and is NOT subject to claims about copyright violation.

On another, we do not want to encourage "hate art" in galleries.

And, of course, there is also the claim that you provoked this with your own behavior, in which case it's safe to call it comeuppance.

I don't like complicated decisions like this.  (Not that doing a mod delete is a complicated action, but the decision of whether to take that action at all is another matter.)  For now, I'll confer with our other staff first.

StratadrakeYes, FAC definitely does need some active code/feature development again.  Unfortunately I've been out of the coding loop for a long time, and the current codebase was implemented solo by cstdenis (for now I can only assume it's stored in the SVN repository where I can check out a copy sometime), which means a lot of learning before anything significant can be done.

luckylace222As stated by other members, "Delete My Account" does not truly delete the account. I just made a mock account, tried to delete, and I could log in like normal. However, when I look up my mock username on Google with "fanart centralm" there are no results. Usually, I can at least see one link linking to a fanart central account. Maybe deleting makes your account hidden from the other world but not within Fanart Central? 

luckylace222 on December 13, 2013, 12:50:02 PM

luckylace222Scratch that; I just tried logging into that same mock account NOW, and it said it was officially deleted.

Hey, I know I haven't been active here lately. (Getting engaged and planning a wedding will do that.) But when I submitted a piece of artwork, I noticed something strange; It's pending approval! I haven't had to wait for submission approval since the first week I joined the site. What gives?
^K_Pepper

Do you know the answer for this?

Stratadrake on September 16, 2013, 8:40:41 AM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeThe simplest explanation would be submitting to a monitored category.  "Games > Other Not Listed" (along with several other "Not Listed" type categories) are currently set to require stricter (or mandatory) staff approval.

CRwixey=13pxHi Strata,

=13pxNot sure if this is a bug, glitch, or something that's only happening to me, but when I click "Submit" to reply to a comment, nothing happens, and clicking "Preview" displays a "Bad Request" message. 

CRwixey on June 22, 2013, 8:18:29 AM

CRwixeyHi Strata, sorry to bother you again.
Recently I've been unable to reply to comments left under my own pictures. I can leave comments on profiles and other users' work, but when I click on one of my own images I appear to be logged out. When I try to log in from the same page, I get this message: "The CSRF token could not be verified". I've tried changing my password but this didn't make any difference. 

Stratadrake on June 22, 2013, 9:46:28 AM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeWell, with the new codebase there are a lot of new bugs showing up.  I've relayed this to our forum topic.  In the meantime, just know that steps like changing your password almost never help the issue at all.

I edited my Profile recently but afterwards found I had made a mistake and went to re-edit, but can't as the Profile=13px Text box is now blank, and doesn't respond when I click an icon or try to type in it. 
The same thing has started happening with the image description boxes as well - what can I do to fix this?

AlexFox11Hello I'm having a bit problem for the description for creating a chapter and such. I put at least about 99 words up but theres a word limit that goes up to 255 an it won't accept the length of it. so i did shorten it down a bit but still said it was too long. so I got annoyed and said it was a fic. I hopefully you have an idea what's wrong with it or it might be a bug. TT_TT  Thanks. 

Stratadrake on March 13, 2013, 11:29:16 AM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeIt's actually a character limit, not a word limit -- a.k.a. no more than a total of 255 individual letters, spaces, and/or punctuation.  (If the average word is 5 characters long, this effectively means 50 words or less.)

XOAyeeEhmBeeOXHey Stratadrake. I have a question. I joined FAC originally back in.. idk about 2006 maybe? With my original account "Bombgirl" and I'm almost positive you had banned it for something.. I don't remember why. But I had all of my drawings on that account that I don't have physically anymore. I was wondering if there was any way you could un-ban the account just so I can get my pictures off of it. It would mean a lot to me if you could. Or somehow get them yourself off of the account and E-mail them to me? I'm not too sure what exactly you can do but it would mean a lot to me if you could try to do something.

Stratadrake on December 13, 2012, 1:27:37 AM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeIf that username (Bombgirl) is correct the account is marked as deleted (not banned) and there are no lingering picture IDs (much less actual submitted pictures) still associated with it.  Can't help you at all, sorry.

Remember, you are the one ultimately responsible for securing/retaining backup copies of any material you submit to websites.  If stuff happens ... then stuff happens.

XOAyeeEhmBeeOX on December 13, 2012, 11:48:13 AM

XOAyeeEhmBeeOXI understand. I used to keep them all in a Binder, but everything I owned was destroyed in a house fire. Oh well. Just pictures I guess. Thanks anyway. (:

TheGameArtCriticHey Stratadrake, on certain pictures I can't reply to comments or post any comments myself. This problem has been around since this new version of FAC was put up and hasn't been fixed. Any idea when that may happen?

Stratadrake on November 7, 2012, 5:04:23 AM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeComments can be enabled/disabled on a per-picture basis (though the page should tell you when this is the case).  Do you have any specific page URLs I can check?

TheGameArtCritic on November 7, 2012, 12:32:56 PM

TheGameArtCritic on
TheGameArtCriticI do, but first can I ask if there's a new limit to comments? Or if there's too many comments on a picture, does it mess with the ability to post more comments?

andr28aIf it is not too much trouble.  GET RID OF THIS VERSION OF FAC!!!!!!!!  It is hellishly annoying to work with.
Everything was fine the way you had it.  What ever happend to the expresion "if it ain't broke, don't fix it", cause this whole place has become a total mess.  Please, could you return FAC to the way you had it before this... disaster.
I'm aware that site have to 'update' to keep things running.... but this is, I'm very sorry to say, a total pisstake.
I hope to hear from you all soon

Stratadrake on October 26, 2012, 9:12:29 AM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeNo going back, sorry.  The new version is pretty much a complete rewrite of all the internals, which was badly needed.

We're aware that there's only one theme right now (the 2.0 Silver) and it's missing the blue (3.0 Zellers) theme - we may bring something like it back in a future update as a visual theme only.

We do have a forum topic available to discuss the matter, provided you can keep things civil:

luckylace222Strata, why do Popular works have only 3 pictures displayed? (sometimes, it has two)

Stratadrake on October 16, 2012, 4:11:08 AM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeCurrently it only picks from within the last two weeks (this keeps them rotating); if there just aren't many submissions to the site, there aren't many to choose from.

luckylace222 on October 17, 2012, 3:49:20 AM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222Does the Popular Works only accept submissions that have reached a certain number of favs/views? -Because I have approved much more than 5 pictures over the past 2 weeks, and not even those show up as the lowest popular work.

Stratadrake on October 17, 2012, 4:14:53 AM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeI don't remember the specific algorithm, but it does:
- sort by a rough combination of # faves and votes (which needs refinement)
- exclude Featured pics (they'll become popular anyway, by virtue of being Featured)
- limit 1 most-popular per user (avoids flooding by one popular user)
- reflect individual content filter levels
- limit last two weeks

...the last is really just a hack to prevent it from taking too long to generate the list.

StratadrakeAn animated GIF, correct? Well, for starters please ensure that it does not exceed the maximum avatar size (64x64), because our avvie-resizing code has a tendency to remove animations.

Stratadrake on May 12, 2012, 2:03:23 AM

StratadrakeOne account per user is the rule. Creating "alt" or "backup" accounts is not recommended, for historical (mostly troll-related) reasons.

StratadrakeWell, if they're only "still up" and not actively being used then technically that's against rules, but it's not a priority like if they're actively using them to exploit the system (get around blocklists, etc.) .

StratadrakeThe "Internet Comics" category is monitored to make sure people don't try to use it for self-published (original) comics. As for the picture itself, Spy vs Spy actually isn't an Internet based comic (but we don't have a category for it yet), so as noted use the Other Comics heading instead.

Things like artists of the month or just news would be a great motivation for people on the site and newcomers. I know your propably busy but I just wanted to give a suggestion xxxx

StratadrakeSince you have a computer, if you can snag a few blank sheets of paper from your printer then that will do fine. (Printer paper doesn't have the same texture as drawing paper, but you won't even notice a difference.)

It was not a stolen image, it was no "adult" material. a far as i know it didn't break any rules so why wasn't it accepted?

Stratadrake on June 16, 2011, 2:36:16 AM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeAccording to the other pages in your submissions log, #807687 was processed and rejected on the grounds of a large image size (1100x1600). This is a fairly common (and minor) thing; it's generally good practice to size your image so that it fits within a typical screen resolution at full view.

We have exact same image dimensions (almost proof enough in and by itself), and the dA original dates back to July 2007 (FAC submission, September 2008). Okay, looks clear cut to me.

NickyHello, May i ask why not remove the fan work validation system and replace it with new submission review system?

Like new submission is instantly uploaded like old times, and staff members review them in "newest submissions" tab or something like that ^^

it's painful to wait days or even weeks before my piece of art gets validated

Stratadrake on May 10, 2011, 2:08:30 AM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeIt is a matter of principle, about whether or not the submission itself should be publically viewable (and commentable, fav-able, etc.) before site staff have had a chance to review it.

Nicky on May 10, 2011, 2:44:19 AM

Nicky on
Nickythen i think the staff needs a bit of "Motivation" if you wish to say it that way XD

Maybe like a footnote that says Reviewed and Validated by Staff ______

that will make a better connection between the staff and the artists =3

StratadrakeOffensive content for artistic purposes is (within limits) permissible so long as it is flagged as Mature Content. For this one, it is the matter of copyright and failure to cite references that I have to take issue against.

Oki2Can we start a group on here called "the awesome extreme troll eradicator FTW task force?" Naturally I wouldn't be willing in any way to help or particpate or even acknowledge its exsistence, however I may subconsciously find it amusing. I don't even think there are any trolls left on here... just goblins...and mermaids...

If it qualifies as "hate" or "attack" art then it's considerd a violation of site rules and can be removed.

XKurateaXIt didn't say that. You linked the picture to my profile and said "I think you can relate to it" I don't see why you can't just admit to it. And there is nothing funny about the picture honestly, it's highly offensive. And just because I defend myself and don't find the picture funny, does not make me a troll. And indeed, you ARE the real fire starter here.

XKurateaX on December 7, 2010, 7:44:50 AM

XKurateaXMe? A troll? You're more of a troll than I am. At least I don't put up pictures on FAC and then send the link to certain users saying "Hey, I think you can relate to this"

XKurateaXYes, it was a FAC submission, it's his most recent one, and the comments on my page are still there, I never deleted them if you wish to see for yourself. But, he did submit a picture and he did send the link to me and he said he thinks I could relate to it. He never asked for my opinion on the picture.

StratadrakeLet me see what I can find in our logs. First, let me get these out of the way....

1 - If your profile page blurb was changed then unless it was cached or stored somewhere else (like a search engine), the previous contents are strictly non-recoverable. We do not keep any "edit history" logs of profile pages.

2 - If someone else has gained login access to your account, changing your account password should be a priority. Even if they get a login cookie, changing your account password will break it.

At this time, all I can dig up is that between 7:30 and 8:30 today, there were seven comments posted from your username, from an IP address not otherwise associated with your account. All of them wrapped in bold/italic/color tags and definitely of trolling nature.

IDs: "Knight tablet" 799023, "Knight tablet example," 799024 and "Contest!" 799027.

I also have three other submissions I submitted a day after, (I haven't been on this site for a spell, and made a few submissions since then)

IDs: "Gay marriage?" (Sx minor) 799065, "Darkrai! <3" 799073, and "Darkrai lines" 799074.

XKurateaXWell I was wondering when it comes to putting up pics that we use as our avatars, why is it that GIF images that we use as avatars have to be a certain size in order for them to show the animation on the image such as movement, etc.?

Stratadrake on November 25, 2010, 11:02:57 AM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeImages larger than the size limit will be resized by force; if the file was an animated GIF, the resizing process destroys its animation layer.

Stratadrake on November 21, 2010, 1:13:05 AM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeY'know, if your password really was changed then you would be unable to log in to your account and even tell me in the first place. Start from the beginning: What were you doing that made you think it was changed?

Zukoinferno on November 22, 2010, 1:51:55 AM

ZukoinfernoI made the site remember my password on Safari, so it's never really "logged me off". It's really confusing, I know... I do know that some loltroll hacked me though, cause he put something in my favorites that wasn't there before.

Stratadrake on November 25, 2010, 9:27:18 AM

StratadrakeNope, I still don't buy it.

If somebody succeeded in changing your FAC password, then any "remember me" login cookies would become immediately invalidat, and you would be unable to log in to your FAC account at all. Do you understand?

Have you already attempted the password recovery feature?

StratadrakeWow, is your opinion of drugs ... on drugs.

Besides, I see you are also throwing around the word "autistic" as if it's the new "gay", as if "gay" is the new "stupid". Where ever did you learn such talk? You're not contributing to the community with this and you've been blocked by almost a dozen users within your first week here. If that doesn't spell "trolling" with a capital T, it at least spells "harassment" with a capital H.

Your right to free speech ends when used to insult or harass other users, and we have zero tolerance when it comes to alternate accounts registered by proxy for repeat trolls.

If you do not contribute to the community, you should have asked whether it was worth your time to register here in the first place, or if another site would be a better venue for it. If you came here looking to cause trouble, you will find yourself kicked out, and the door slammed in your face.

StratadrakeApologies in advance that I am going to be blunt.

Your submission contains the internationally recognized symbol for "I'm here solely to cause trouble". It was obviously assembled in something along the lines of MS Paint using the pencil tool, flood fill, and copy/paste. I could possibly cite you for failing to provide documentation that you have any permission to incorporate "trollface" and my avatar as compositional elements in the work. On top of it all, the entire message of the work is very suspicious. What "investigation"? It sounds intended as a direct criticism of something I said, which if it is, carries an allegation that you are not a genuine newbie but possibly a former user attempting to retaliate for their ban.

In other words, if you think you're trying to play a game with the site, stop it because it won't end pretty.

And why is it taking so long for a pic I post to load when on Vhee it was instant? I'm not new. Do I need to prove I am who I say I am?

StratadrakeIf you think your account was 'cracked' then the first thing to consider is changing your password. Including your email password (because FAC can and will mail your password to that address if somebody requests it).

As for the text on your profile page, sorry but that is non-recoverable. Only the "current" copy of your profile text is actually stored in the database, we do not keep a log of previous edits. (I have learned this the hard way too :( )

StratadrakeWell, I can't find anything (ANYTHING!) wrong with your account settings on the forum side, so for now I'm wondering if the problem is related specifically to the computer you're accessing our site from.

For example, are you able to log in to the forums from a different computer somewhere else? (Minding that if it's a public computer you'll need to log out again)

Stratadrake on September 14, 2010, 1:54:53 AM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeThe 3-per-day limit has been in place for over five years; if I recall correctly it was to encourage artists to be their own quality control. It is occasionally annoying for new users or anyone else with a backlog of content to submit, but on average, it works out well enough.

It is 3 pics and 2 scraps. But every day it says 5 pics and 2 scraps. I understand the total is 5 butIhave to reccount once a day to have it be correct.

StratadrakeNo. Once a username is registered it is "taken" and cannot be assigned to a new account.

If you really want to wipe all of your art submissions (though personally I just don't get why), that will have to be done manually.

Only_OneHello, My submission got rejected for the wrong reasons, and im quiet unpleased and unhappy with it. one of your admin's rejected my artwork THAT I COLORED. that i have the PSD files for. Because they thought it was 'found off the internet'.

It was a collab between me and my friend, he did the inks and i colored it. It is MY artwork and im quiet upset with this. You guys allowed me to post a picture before that was a collab. Why not now? Lol

StratadrakeI've mentioned this in our AP staff thread. Honest mistakes do occasionally happen....

On a semi-related note, when doing a collab with other artists, please include the URL to their work when possible.

In the meantime you will simply have to resubmit.

Stratadrake on
StratadrakedA is very successful, yes. They offer commercial services, have different advertising partners..., heck, they can even afford to pay their staff members.

I hear that even FAC's adult counterpart (Hentai Foundry) is much more successful than FAC itself, even though the site has basically the same look, features (and, yes, bugs) as FAC. It no doubt has a better, more mature userbase with fewer trolls and problem users. I don't know for sure because I do not operate an account there.

I am no fan of our current advertising methods myself, considering that those ads popping up when you click random links also interfere with staff functions.

And I, for myself, have never advertised FAC outside of placing a link to my FAC account in my sig.

StratadrakeAre you sure it's her password and not her email? In other words, are you quoting the error message word-for-word? It is very important to quote error messages exactly as stated, otherwise I might end up giving the wrong kind of help and that won't fix the problem.

You can also have her contact me by email. (BUT!) Make sure the email subject line includes "FAC" or something like that so I know to identify it and not just let it get thrown out with all the spam.

Stratadrake on July 1, 2010, 1:47:08 AM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeYou are missing the point.

FAC site policy has always stated "limit one account per user" and operating multiple accounts is not permitted. This is not, and never has been, a negotiable term in FAC site rules; it is something you agreed to follow when you signed up on this site.

You yourself have demonstrated exactly why we have this rule in the first place: Because people use it to abuse the system.

If we have to suspend a user, it is targetted at the actual person, and this means that any user found to be operating multiple accounts will have all their accounts treated equally in order to prevent abuse.

soraXriku on June 30, 2010, 5:02:29 PM

soraXriku on
soraXrikuDon't see why I'm not allowed to have 2 accounts, when this one has been hacked numerous times, and still has been.

Also, no offense here, but you've probably had the same web host since 2004, if I'm not mistaken.

StratadrakeIf you're not receiving emails from FAC, first check the settings on your FAC profile and your email provider. Try adding bounce@fanart-central.net to your "safe list" to tell the mail service it isn't spam, and see if that makes a difference.

I don't always get my notifications either, sometimes they are delayed by up to 24 hours.

TotalWeirdo666I used to have a problem similar to that. My settings were to NOT get emails for ANYTHING but the site sent me emails for EVERYTHING. But I ended up liking getting emails so I wouldn't have to check my profile and pics all the time for new comments so now my settings are to get em

StratadrakeDon't work? Why and how? If you're encountering a problem one of the first things you can do is ask a site staff member for help, we have a better idea about what could be causing it.

Multiple accounts are not that much of a problem by themself, but they do become a problem in the event of rule violations (especially those that result in suspensions or bans).

I thought I posted this already >.>' Maybe I did and it just went to some one else and if that is the case and it does it this time too sorry for the double post! But if I actually just didn't post...oops and please ignore this whole paragraph o3o

StratadrakeIn your case, it's because you need to re-validate your email address. Make sure you can receive email from FAC, because if the mail server refused the notification it's possible that FAC flagged your email as invalid.

StratadrakeAre you aware that if somebody changed your password then your autologin cookie would no longer work, so you would be unable to log in at all?

If your FAC account is compromised then I have to be suspicious of even this, can you contact me by another means, like your dA account?

StratadrakeBut I must stress that they were not suspended because of using the word, they were suspended for trolling other users.

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeFAC reserves the right to screen any submissions for approval before they are made publically available. This is not always necessary, however, so users who have been around for some time are usually given 'auto' status meaning we do not believe they need to be screened.

I remember the art theft senario when she accused me of stealng art, i have done nothing to this user at all. i wouldn't even do this to any user here on FAC.

I would like to have this problem fixed, if i can gain my old account again i will deactivate this one and go back on to 'supermad'.

Thank you.

Here:

As you she isn't very smart, so she made it even SOUND like her, I mean supermad's spelling is much better than hers, take a look at some of her comments if you need proof.

StratadrakeIf you think the user is likely to change it before I receive the report, then please do.

Comment screenshots are not necessary simply because they don't have an "edit" button.

Twilightwolf94 on April 1, 2010, 5:26:03 PM

Twilightwolf94 on
Twilightwolf94Here, as you can see the colour of the text is EXACTLY the same, and the terrible grammar is also the same:




She is currently under the guise of perfect princess, and the accounts that StarCaster (or the account supermad had to make to report her) have mentioned

Twilightwolf94 on April 1, 2010, 6:32:40 PM

Twilightwolf94 on
Twilightwolf94And I almost fogot the links to her other accounts, the proof their her's is simple, look at the grammer and those song words on nightfang

and cookiemuncher has terrible grammer and it's written in hot pink like perfectprincess and you should look at the simlar comments between those two

Anyways, hhere are the links to the profiles:

I can't take any action without some concrete proof to make a case. It may be sad to hear this, but I don't know that I can trust you on just your word against theirs. Certain people can, will, and HAVE lied to the admin just to see if they can get away with it, and when it comes to reports and removals we can't take that chance.

If they really did upload one of your pictures, yes that is a violation of FAC submission policy, but in the meantime also consider that you should be signing your work before scanning/uploading it so that it can be identified as yours later on.

StratadrakeIt's amazing what a non-management level job at an ordinary retail store teaches you about stress management.

ZonadowKudos on the job here though. I originally left here to join dA but after 2 years of bullshoot I re-joined on FAC and I love it. The administrators on DeviantART seem to thrive off of drAma and trolls and are very stuck-up.
The admins here seem more professional than stuck-up.

Stratadrake on March 7, 2010, 12:48:12 AM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeWe have only four administrators: cstdenis, Battou, unfocused, and myself. And we each have our critics....

I've never had much of a problem with dA's admins, but I don't actually know them so I have no experience on the matter to speak from.

Zonadow on March 7, 2010, 10:42:28 AM

Zonadow on
ZonadowWould you be offended if I asked you if you had a persona of some kind?
I had an idea to poke a little fun at people treating admins like deities, and drawing you pointing at a various user and firing a sparkling blue ban laser. XD
Because I swear, people tend to treat administrators like deities instead of normal human beings, like if they hug an admin they'll have a giant ban laser fired at them.

Stratadrake on March 6, 2010, 2:03:07 AM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeWell, internally we use a unique numeric ID to identify each user (yours would be #94352). So if we changed your username this would not affect, say, whether you're acknkowledged as the owner of your submissions, who your Favorite artists (or Fans) are, who'se blocked you, etc.

However, the actual image files your submitted are are stored according to your actual username, and THAT would be critically affected if you changed it. All your submissions would suddenly appear broken and have to be re-uploaded.

That's really the only major technical hurdle. Aside from that the reason we don't already allow username changes is that it could be easily abused; say Alice changes her username to Bob, but then Charlie changes his username to Alice. See the problem? We would need some measure to prevent the "old" username from being hijacked by someone else after a switch.

But that creates another problem: say that Diego registers an account, then decides to change his name to Ernie, then Ferdinand, then George, then Harley. All those usernames have now been 'taken', which blocks the real Ferdinand, George, and Harley from registering their names.

These are both serious problems that could be easily abused. If we implemented the ability to change usernames, it would have to be an administrative level power to prevent abuse.

StratadrakeThe short answer is another site staff member has to think you're worth the position and give you authorization.

StratadrakeThere were several pre-existing complaints about that user's behavior, which was part of the reason why he was banned for what otherwise might have been viewed as harmless.

For now I will just summarize the following points:
1 - Attempting to imitate the behavior of another troll or banned user, even as a joke, can be a bannable offense itself.
2 - Deleting a comment doesn't stop site staff from posting replies to it.
3 - Terminating your own account doesn't stop site admins from processing a ban against you.

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeLet's see, you filed it under "Miscellaneous > Surrealism", correct? Surrealism is/was an actual, historical genre of artwork that you can look up on Wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surrealism

As with all historical art movements and philosophies it is hard to define in concrete terms, however Salvador Dali is probably the best known Surrealist artist and therefore his works tend to be synonymous with what Surrealism is.

In the case of your submission, I'm not sure what you mean by "p-e" unit but you might consider the "Fantasy -> Sci-Fi" category for submission.

(AP staff really should suggest a category when rejecting pieces for this reason, but that is occasionally forgotten.)

StratadrakeThank you for including the picture ID number.

Judging by what I see, the picture appears to have been removed for failure to comply with Rule Number One of our submission policy. That is to say, we cannot verify the animation was created by you and have reason to believe it was merely reuploaded from somewhere else around the Internet.

FAC is not an image hosting service, we do not permit uploads of random images on our site and will take them down as they are discovered.

TailsLover80 on November 15, 2009, 12:50:34 PM

TailsLover80 on
TailsLover80I have a suggestion for the site, hopefully you could take this into consideration.

I was thinking about making something a tad bit like MySpace. Make a friends list and a Chat box for certain people that you want to talk to privately, to take out the "Private Messaging" system. It can keep things private, people can chat faster, remember who their friends are if they don't remember, and people don't have to stress about things like "I can't log into my Private Messaging account!" or "The messages keep deleting before I can read them!". This could lessen down problems for other users.

I only took thought into this, if you don't consider it, thats fine, just want to share my ideas with you.

Stratadrake on November 15, 2009, 10:03:59 PM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeThat's a very complicated suggestion. For one, there's a good reason websites like to keep their chat modules on separate servers from the mainsite....

We tried to implement forum PM support on the mainsite in the past but it never worked quite right, so denis decided to scrap it and just have the "PM" link use the forums system. Not a great method....

TailsLover80 on November 16, 2009, 5:57:40 AM

xEdwardxIf you're using Firefox, there is a VERY handy BBcode add-on which formats your text.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/128

For now, install that add-on and use it instead of having to type out tags. Whenever you're typing into a text box, highlight whatever you want to format and right-click and it will pull up the BBCode format window, really convenient.

Hope that helps!

StratadrakeNo. A "hard delete" means it's gone and permanent.

As opposed to a "soft" delete where it's still recorded somewhere but only visible to those with special access.

StratadrakeFor example, this picture was one recently nominated for Featuring. We staff haven't officially discussed or voted on it (and, in fact, we rarely do anyway), but while it's definitely a good piece in terms of general skill, I don't think it's all that feature-worthy to me. The reason? I don't like the chin. I know that with anime characters this is something that you can write off as a style issue, but I've seen no shortage of anime chins and even compared to them his chin still looks wrong. I know it's a relatively small flaw compared to the amount of work the artist put into the overall work, but at the same time, his face is a focal point and that makes the chin very obvious to me. I wouldn't be the staff member to feature that. At the same time, if another staff member did I probably wouldn't object (a.k.a. un-feature) it either.

Stratadrake on September 28, 2009, 1:26:06 AM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeWell, the "Popular Works" panel is chosen by # of faves and/or votes. In theory. Turns out there's a bug in the system that needs fixing before it works right.

The "Featured Pics" are chosen personally by staff members based largely on nominations which are posted in the forums. Generally speaking we look for artists who can produce higher quality work, both in their technical ability (coloring/shading) and their artistic ability (composition), something that doesn't have any very obvious flaws popping out at us within the first 10 seconds of looking at it.

ThatLooksCopiedWell, hello there! I'm rather new to this site, and I thought I might introduce myself to you, since you're a site official and all of that.

I suppose I'm the new tattle-tale around here, though I plan on submitting some of my own work sometime.

You're all doing a great job with the site, by the way!

You will probably be hearing from me quite often, since I'm so obsessed with exposing stolen/plagiarized art. I've already sent most of you multiple PMs about that.

Haha! I hope I'm helping you more than I'm annoying you!

Thanks for everything you do,
TLC

PS Your art is fantastic. How many years have you been studying art?

StratadrakeMultiple accounts are frowned upon largely because we've had to process many bans against duplicate accounts which were found to be trolling/harassing.

FAC staff actually do operate one alternate account called "Administration" but that is all, and I prefer to take moderator actions from my real account anyway.

StratadrakeIf it's a large image that, the animation is lost as part of the resizing process. You will have to resize the image yourself before uploading.

StratadrakeWhoa, slow down. You lost me.

You used the phrase "cop", and the first thing that jumped to my mind was a moderator/administrative position, which are obviously not 'entry-level' occupations. As for regular staffers like the AP staff, we did recently authorize Dark_Angel_Of_Light but that was denis's final decision, not mine.

As for other things such as reporting submission violations, harassment, or other things which need the attention of a staff member anyone is free to do that.

It's Jimmy's fault he chose to get involved.

Further more, purplemoonlight006 is right. All I said was "HAHAHAHAHA" to Mandy's comment on his page and that is not harassment.

I started talking to Mandy about Jimmysoul but I WAS NOT harassing him directly. I should have every right to speak my opinions and not be afraid of being banned or suspended.

Jimmy, there's a simple thing to make this all go away, and that's called the Block button.

Then put the username you want to close, the password, why you want it deleted, and a link to your profile.

Actually, my issue is with the password. I couldn't remember mine and had to reset it. I clicked the link in the e-mail, but the password won't work. I'm wondering if I need to log-out of this part of the site first, but I am afraid that then I'll be completely locked out.

StrawChanUm, hi. I know you don't really want your page to be a help forum again, but my problem is that I CAN'T get on the forums and you are the only admin I can find that allows commenting.

May I explain my problem to you or would you rather I wait until I figure out how to get on the boards?

Thank you for your time!

Ryu_WarriorHi, I have a question.

Are poll contests strictly for contest entries that people set up? Because I want to do a project for myself and I want people to decide by giving them a list, thus a poll. I guess.

I should put this on the forums but I figured this is more direct.

StratadrakeReviewing the submissions now. Yes, they are technically different, but from a thumbnail's perspective this is a pretty difficult thing to spot. The given clothing (jeans/dress/skirt) is absolutely the only difference between the submissions, which is probably where the confusion came from.

I do not see a need to become involved here (and we don't have an "un-reject" function available), but I might suggest that if you want to draw your character in different attire, that you create a completely new sketch for each one rather than simply 'editing' over the previous piece (there is nothing wrong with that when the original is your work, this is just to avoid confusion).

The original picture is here: http://chibi-metal.deviantart.com/art/Jacob-the-Werewolf-48471967
It surfaced in the "Hybrids" category of the "Sonic Fancharacters" (which I am not a fan of). I'm totally sure that the person who submitted it at FAC didn't draw it.

Umm... I've got a problem, three people so far are running around here lying about users, calling people fags, and if you go to the website on Horgh's profile, it has a hate article about Fanart Central.

He has called alot of users, even 12-year-olds and younger users f***tards, flamed people for their art, and even has a "worst artists" list.
They will post screenshots of users disscussing what to do about the website and Horgh.

The other users involved in this website and flaming spree are Edward_Elric_1308, Ravenpelt, and Horgh.

Thank You,
Claudia

KirbytCheesyC, Edward is not a flamer. He is just ticked of everyone calling him a flamer. He is just making critiques (that are not nice enough) on arts that has flaws or unrecognizable parts.

If I was him on making critiques, I would not say "OMG. WTF?" or "Lrn to draw."

I need to say "Almost nice. But one flaw, that thing is not long enough." Now that is nice and caring.

P.S. Your work is out of this world! Keep it up. Thanks!

Xiakeyra on September 20, 2008, 10:04:30 PM

XiakeyraHi Strata,
Is it bad or forbidden to advertize forum contests on people's profiles?
Certain person asked me to help her advertize her contest so that she could get more contestants. I agreed on helping her but someone replied on my profile that I shouldn't advertize like that because it's annoying.
Should I go on advertizing?

Stratadrake on September 21, 2008, 3:20:16 AM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeIt is usually not a problem to advertise a contest on your profile if it is your contest. We don't have a policy for this but as opinion goes I agree, you have no obligations whatsoever to promote somebody else's contests or activities on your profile space.

Xiakeyra on September 22, 2008, 5:19:35 PM

Xiakeyra on
XiakeyraThanks but the problem is that I didn't advertise on my own profile but on other people's profile like this:
http://www.fanart-central.net/profile-mangacheese1818.php
And I did so on at least twenty or thirty users.
Here's my profile where you can see yuai77 asking for my help to advertise her contest which I did willingly and you can also see mangacheese1818 complaining for spamming her profile with yuai77's contest advertisement.
I would like to know if there is any policy to regulate this procedure or at least your opinion.
I think chain letters are rather annoying, however I don't think contest advertisement are. Nonetheless it seems people don't agree with me.

Stratadrake on
Stratadrakehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leet

Phone camera? I don't think it would be a problem from a policy standpoint, however I would strongly recommend against it. Cameras aren't the right tool for capturing notebook-paper sized drawings at all (poor image contrast and lens distortion among the reasons), with phone cameras the least among them due to their lower image resolution and lack of good exposure-adjustment controls.

Two, on CSTDenis's profile, it says that only his watchers can comment. I clicked the fav artist button, and it still would not let me comment on his profile. What's going on there?

Stratadrake on June 22, 2008, 5:47:04 PM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeIf you set your profile page to "Restricted" commenting, only people that YOU watch will be able to comment on your userpage. So in denis's case, the only way to comment on his userpage is if he watches you. He's tired of his profile page being used as a surrogate support forum, which is why he's restricted comments on his userpage.

As for the word filters, you'll find that option displayed in your profile settings, right beneath the IMG tag limit.

StratadrakeOn your account options, there is a field called "[img] View Limit" -- this controls how many images will be displayed. Word of caution, this only affects how pages are displayed to you, other users can set their own preferences on viewing IMG tags.[/img]

KickassgirlHeeeeeey... Guess what?
I was submitting a picture, and after a while got an e-mail saying it was rejected because it wasn't oriented right. (It was right, but it was made to look sideways.) I followed the link to re-submit it, but when I did this (twice actually) it said "Access Denied," even though every required box in that field was checked.
(I added a note saying it was supposed to be like that. I don't know if adding text to a re-submission affects anything like that.)

Now, I'm sure this is no big deal for a lot of people. However, being stuck with dial-up doesn't make the submission process any fun. I don't want to do this many more times so I thought I'd just ask before trying again and again in vain...

Once again: the image is how it needs to be. It looks sideways, but it's not.
(It was "Steam For Guts" if that helps at all. I wouldn't know if it does.)

Thanks much in advance.

Stratadrake on June 8, 2008, 3:43:43 AM

StratadrakeCurrently, the edit-and-resubmit feature is limited to within one week of the initial rejection notice, however it is buggy and sometimes refuses to work properly. This issue should be fixed as of our next update (which should be soon, however I cannot give an exact date.)

My Profile seems to have got ‘stuck’ and won’t update even after reloading the page. It states the last time I updated was 22nd March even though I updated it today, and my status is classified as ‘Unknown’.

If I click on the ‘Gallery’ link it seems ok and displays 56 pictures, but the Profile’s stuck on 53. I’ve tried cleaning my browser cache but it doesn’t seem to help. Do you know what the problem is?

Thanks.

Stratadrake on March 9, 2008, 1:07:12 AM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeSorry if I sounded too harsh, but at least that is resolved. While FAC does create resized versions and thumbnails of the image, it also keeps a copy of the original image for full-viewing. As a rule of thumb, an image that is twice the size as another tends to take up four times the storage space.

We've seen submissions measuring in the 4,000 (and more) pixel range, which is why we've started to draw a line around the "1500px" area. There aren't very many things that actually require so many pixels.

StratadrakeWell, you are scanning your drawings at 150dpi, which makes it appear roughly twice as large onscreen as it is in real life.

We don't have much sympathy for people who don't know how to do basic things like resizing images or saving in different file formats. Learn.

Stratadrake on March 1, 2008, 2:15:33 AM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeIt's because of the category you submitted it to -- some submission categories are monitored and 'auto' status does not work on those.

This should have been mentioned on the confirmation page after submitting the picture, i.e. "you have selected a monitored category for submission (submissions to this category are always screened for approval)".

TheGhosti have like a qustion. um i have over 30 pics in my gallary. and i still have to wait a day or in my case. two days. i don't understand. from what i have heard from other users. when u get over 30 pics it gose to automatic? is there a reason for it not switching?

StratadrakeDon't believe every rule-of-thumb you hear. There is no exact # of submissions required to earn 'auto' status (if there were, certain people would be abusing it), it simply depends on your reputation with the AP, i.e. the number of pices approved vs. rejected.

Also note that some submission categories are monitored and always screened for submission regardless of 'auto' status.

TheGhostoh. well thanks anyway. but are you saying i will always have to wait at least two days for my art to be submmited?

if I am insulted by another user and i insult them back can my account be deleted for that?
i haven't but its just outta curiosity

StratadrakeWhatever you do, don't start harassing them back because then you are breaking the same rule yourself -- "no better than them", so to speak. When something is truly uncalled-for you may delete the comments, or block the user from commenting.

LilichanHey Strata, quick question. Is it against the TOS to use a stock photo as a background for a pic you drew? Just wanted to ask before I submit something potentially against the rules.

Stratadrake on January 21, 2008, 8:46:50 PM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeLong as the photo is valid stock, and does not distract from the artwork drawn on top of it, in general yes. In other words, it has to be a drawing/painting first with a stock background second, not a photo first with minor touchups/alterations second.

Lilichan on January 23, 2008, 5:31:57 AM

LilichanGot it. ^^
Thanks.

Stratadrake on January 24, 2008, 9:42:48 PM

StratadrakeOh, and you should of course cite/credit where you found the photo (and this does mean precisely where, not just "on suchandsuch.com")

BI have a question
My sister and I both have accounts here and when I want to submit a picture it goes into pending and when my sister does it sibmits emidiately
why is that?

Stratadrake on January 21, 2008, 8:47:52 PM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeThat is not even a bug to begin with. FAC staff reserve the right to screen submissions by members, newer members especially.

BO_O but why is it not doing it to my sister?

i was going to ask about that, but i figured that theyd fix it eventually.

finalfantasy on January 19, 2008, 12:32:00 AM

finalfantasy on
finalfantasyUm, question...
There are some people here on FAC who do nothing but criticize other artists and make fun of people's beliefs.

Is there anything you guys can do to stop them?

Stratadrake on January 19, 2008, 11:40:25 PM

Stratadrake on
StratadrakeDepends. It's hard to define where comments cross from freedom of speech into harassment or flaming.

KosmonavtGhost of the warzone past is here. Just to make an entrance I intent to violate most of your commenting guidelines. :)
Simple question, rethorical question. Do you ever find your self wanting to google something 5 years old? In the middle of the day, "BAM" for no reason warzone pops up in your head and you start thinking about your former online residence. :) And as you go 4-5 years back, even older memories surface, ones that go back a "literaly" millenium.

Your memories would dwarf anyone's off my list. Nothing like a triple personality to steal some points lol.
I guess I just felt like going back in time and saying Hi from early 2000es. I guess it's kind of like sending a letter, immagine the surprise of the recipient - "it's an envelope, but it's not a bill. Wow".
Hope you're doing good, and getting enough inspirations to fuel your ambitions.
- Cheers!

Hatomihello.
now, am I very, very, confused.
why, arent ANY of the pictures i am uploading at this site, NEVER coming up?! i posted one pic over and over again, pu it came on pending in some days, and then, gone.
i have tried so many times, and NOTHING`s happening!
for like 4 days, did I post a picture wrong (at flying_Jones profile, she is my cousin) I used her paintshop, because I dont have one myself, and when i was going to post the picture, it came in her gallery with an accident ( because we was at her profile and I forgot). but at her profile, it came up after just some mins! and we deleted it, and posted it at mine profile. but it NEVER came up! why arent it happening to anyone at this site?! are u guys just uploading somes picture, and others are you just ignoring? I am getting kinda irritable cause of this, so please answer.

StratadrakeDon't try to excuse your own behavior with an equivalent of "they made me do it", it doesn't work. While replying to behavior that crossed a line, YOU crossed the same line yourself. Understand?

StratadrakeInstead of me restating the laundry list of reasons (this has been discussed over and over on the forumside), if you just go get yourself a drawing pad or sketchbook, or snag a sheet or two from your computer's printer, this will solve the problem for both of us. 'No Lined Paper' is an FAC quality guideline for your benefit as well as ours.
