    Why have all the older DSG's been closed...is this a new "no posting allowed after first day" rule being enforced?

    Why have the old DSG been closed? I've got late entries for 1488 and 1489 (These are still pretty recent) but I can't post them

    I can understand closing older topics but these ones are still fresh

    XXITheWorld - Because I was deeply bothered by the quality of image postings to the most recent topic (1489:Alien Malady), and that put me in a more impatient mood regarding postings to older topics (Which I generally allow, but do frown upon).

    To Everyone: I will re-open all recent threads for 24 hours, beginning now. If you have something to post, then hopefully this will give you that opportunity. My apologies for the sudden and unannounced shift.

    In the coming days, I'll be doing some reassessment of how I run the DSG, as I do not wish to play the part of the judgmental curmudgeon, but nor do I wish for the DSG to be a playground for underdeveloped ability looking for undeserved ass-pattery. Which is something I have expressed on numerous occasions previously, but not recently.

    I will sticky-post announcement of any functional changes as soon as they are fully formed.

    Thanks for your patience.

    Hi, i joined yesterday while googling what is "Concept Art"... and i couldnt find any answers on net that can make me understand it. I love art and play with it when im free yet my field of studies is not much related to art. However i really do want to study Art and i believe this is a good site. Curious...
    Which page do i go to for newbies to get around here?
    Do i need to make a sketchbook when i already have a DeviantArt site?
    Can i join in the DSG thing and when is the new ideas releases?
    Haha im asking too much already, Please and Thank You!

    Not that I have problem with storing sketches in some external host (in fact I've been doing it forever) but, what does "For most people, attachments are disabled" exactly mean?
    Apparently, I've been away for longer than I thought. lol

    Sketchbook

    Critique or don't, but please don't rate with stars cause they don't help. Stars are for hotels.

    I'm guessing that only people with administrative privileges get to attach... Back then, I likely wasn't sure what the story was. So, yeah, ya gots ta IMG link to an external host.

    Alright, I have a question.

    It says in the FAQ that this isn't a place for unskilled/beginning artists to post. I don't feel I'm a beginning artist per se, as I've been drawing for years, but I don't feel like my skill level is quite where it should be to post here just yet. I can draw something that's detailed and not just a doodle and all, but I still have a loooooot to learn.

    Is it okay to still sketch the prompts and put them in my conceptart sketchbook without posting them in the DSG thread?

    HightechLowlife - Of course, that's fine. And, yah know... I've kinduv eased up on the whole thing. I'd say go ahead and post your image in the appropriate dsg thread as you do it, and if you're feeling especially embarrassed about one -- just post a url link, instead of an IMG.

    5 days since the last DSG...?
    Is there a break I don't know about?

    [EDIT]
    That reminds me, is the DSG-Bot ever coming back? (automatic, daily posts were pretty damned nice) or has this section been, for the most part, swept under the rug and forgotten, save for the efforts of William b. Hand?

    Rimestar - 3-6 days is maybe about the usual amount of time it takes before I post a new topic, I'd say. Occasionally there may have been even longer dry-spells. I tend to play it by ear, and if I don't think that a particular topic has seen the action it's due (or if it's getting LOTS of attention) then I'll leave it up longer. It's an imperfect and often arbitrary thing. I gave up hope of any DSG bot returning many years ago. If I wasn't doing what I am, this nook would've been paved over already. I don't really like the notion that the DSG has been "forgotten", per sé... But, ya know, it is what it is.

    I don't get it, my post aren't being approved, my comments get deleted without a warning. Did I violate some rule I'm not aware of, or something? I just don't understand where this silent punishment is coming from...

    I noticed that traffic seemed kind of minimal over the last few posts, the same few individuals I assume. I've only just joined the forums and DSG is a big reason why, so here's hoping that it continues!

    it would be better if it was open to the public to post new topics just wondering if thats going to happened in the near future?
    and also i dont really do any digital sketching am i allowed to post pen and pencil sketchings directly from my sketchbook in the thread?
