    So, out of curiosity, is that rule about sexual content or nudity (i.e. post a LINK and not the picture) ever enforced?

    I presume that was made a rule for a good reason.

    maybe my idea of sexual content/nudity is different, but last time i checked, bare tits and penises qualified.

    Not that i try to be a fun-killer... just a bit surprised when i open this forum and find a dick (or nipples, either way) staring at me.

    Posting work on an older topic??

    Didn't see this question so I thought I'd go ahead an ask...What is the general rule regarding posting on a topic thats a day or two old? I understand that it would be nice to have the current days topic be at the top, however somedays I just don't get around to it and miss a cool topic.

    I suppose I could still do the sketch and hide it away on my 'puter so NO ONE WILL SEE...NO ONE!!! MUWAHAHA...oops sorry

    ummm

    the dsg topic page, at http://www.conceptart.org/dsg ...

    its still displaying the 'human skull as art' topic. I went to that page yesterday, saw the topic, and did a sketch for it. I guess i should have checked what number it was up too... oh well.

    I would suggest removing the link from this thread if that page isn't going to be updated anymore, so other people don't repeat my mistake.

    Ksama - Well, really the idea is to respond to the current thread, but it's fine to post on the previous days' topic. Please abstain from going any further back in time than that, though.

    If you are so inspired by some old topic that you absolutely must make a pic based on it, don't bother adding it to the old thread, just post your image in the WIP or FINISHED sections.

    RedTiger - Pencil drawing is fine, but try to adjust the brightness and contrast enough so that it reads well. If you have a graphics program like Photoshop or Painter, you can build on top of your pencil-drawing nicely, too.

    I am kind of curious what it means if threads like the "character:white" thread and the like are called open ended?
    I kind of thought it was literal like: you can add pictures later on, but the one I mentioned above is closed. So I thought I'd ask.

    I'm not the official word on the matter, but my simple take is that you can be open ended with the concept, not the time.

    Great! Now somebody could fix that "in DSG forum or (redirecting) in DSG forum". You know, if we are repairing, we should do it in the pure way Well, ok, I quit now

    Hey guys, Im new to the DSG, never really looked around here b4, I noticed that the topic has not changed in like 2 days now and according to the rules;
    · When does the DSG start?
    The topic is given at approximately 2am (EST) and ends the next day at 1:59am (EST) so everyone has 23:59 hours to do it.
    it should have ended quite a long time ago...unless I missed something...??

    I was patiently waiting for the next topic so I could jump right in, but it never came- is it ok to do some of the older DSG's that are not locked?

    Hi, I'm new here and I thought the DSG was a really great idea. So thanks to whoever organises it. I was wondering if anyone could recommend the suitable image sizes for posting.

    Thanks in advance.

    I've seen 800x600 being requested in other group activities as a general guideline. That seems pretty normal considering it should play nicely with anyone's browser on any size monitor (circa 2000+).

    Of course... correct me if I'm wrong.

    Alright, well my picture got transformed into a link. Quality reasons, I can see - but the edit also stated size. I looked over the rules and saw nothing about size restriction concerning the size of the image. I may be missing something?

    Thanks

    [Edit]: woops, apologies - I assume I've found my answer: 800x600?

    cnctdsns - No, 2 months and older is not okay. Keep it within the past 1 to 3 topics. Thanks!

    Whats up guys
    and
    gals.

    Its been a while for me, so my question is for last few days I keep seeing the same old topic 1371.

    How does this DSG work? I thought it was within 24 hour period new topic. Do we have a timelimit? New topics? How often?

    Someone could fill me in I would appreciate. I read the rules, but they don't seem to apply right now.

    Thanks

    I was wondering If I could go back and post in older DSG, or just keep to the newer ones and save any "extra" drawings for my personal sketchbook?

    I really want to start doing this thing almost daily.

    I believe (perhaps erroneously) I amended the rules to suggest that it's not necessarily every day. If I didn't, then - yeah - it's not necessarily every day. More like every coupluv days. Too many good topics were only getting 5 or 10 proper hits, and I prefer something more in the realm of 20, give or take. Also, it takes time to come up with and type out these things, and I just don't like to do it every day. Otherwise, the rules should pretty much apply.

    Oh, yeah... Here it is. What are you talking about - Did you actually read the rules? First thing stated on page one is the following:

    What is the DSG?
    The dsg is a collection of artists who draw from a topic which is (theoretically) given each day, and DSG stands for Daily Sketch Group. However, since the DSG-Bot broke and WmBHand took the reigns, it's more like a new topic is given every 2 or 3 days.

    When does the DSG start?
    The topic is given at random times, completely without warning.

    Yeah... Only post on topics that are within a couple of the current topic. Posting in older topics is confusing to others and irritating to me, so keep older ones in your own sketchbook. Thanks!
