Art Forums FAQ

Here you can find answers to questions about how the board works. Use the links or search box below to find your way around.

How do I post images?

You'll need to get an external host that allows you to show images on different servers (generally referred to as "hot-linking"). You cannot post images directly from your hard drive, or attach them to our forum.

2 good options are: Photobucket or Geocities

Note: To use geocities you'll need to save your images from .jpg to .txt then post.

Once you have your host you will use the IMG tags inside the post to show where the image should be displayed.

Example: [img]Http://[/img]

If you need help with vB Code, please read the vB code list

Please see jetpack42's comprehensive guide How to post a picture on the forum for detailed information.

What are the rules?

Please be respectful and courteous to each and every member of the forum. Arguing is fine if done without slandering each other personally.

Please do not over post. If you have a large collection of images to post please post them all in one thread. If you posted something and remembered you wanted to add something more, please edit the post instead of adding a completely new reply under the first.

Please be mature with your language; not every one views swearing as you might, so keep it to a minimum.

This forum does not tolerate inquiring about and/or advocating the use of pirated software. Anyone doing so will be banned.

Why don't people comment on my threads/art?

If you are a bit of a beginner, some artists might just not want to repeat their critiques that have been given to others for years on the forum. Sadly, most artists perfer to give the elite their attention.
