I don't know about you, but in the SBs I leave comments that either encourage or make suggestions for further improvement - I don't give ass pats that often and expect the same. We're here to learn, and confining posting to a gallery that doesn't get much traffic can make you hide away and not face what you require to learn.

    There are a lot of things coming which I can't tell you about, but they'll blow your socks off. First, the site needs to be stable so people aren't worrying about down time any more. This has been made the first priority.

    About the gallery thing, yeah I don't expect the site to be like that, was just woundering how the site would evolve and emerge abit like ashes of alar(wow), and since you have just said there are things coming that will blow my socks of. I will defer to your greater knowledge on the matter.

    I wait in hope the site comes back better than ever. Thanks

    You all are the best.

    The updates to the site were to have been completed, including a massive upgrade to the system, but we were sideswiped with two hardware failures on brand new servers over the past weeks (which is not a ball drop but was horrible to deal with I know). I won't even get into the feeling I had coming home to find a tornado had essentially blown down the neighborhood just as I was putting the paint on everyones new houses so they could cut the ribbon and see the dream makeovers. Since then, we have been rebuilding and reconnecting the power and getting the water running again so we can start releasing the new stuff. Thanks for bearing with us. It is happening.

    The key to making this place better is to give everyone a lot more reasons to post and to log in, and to make sure that experience is bug free and smooth as silk. It also needs to be things that help artists do the things they need to do to be successful...not just help show off or showcase or promote..or get ass pats. We are doing exactly that. We have programmers on this every day. Progress is being made. That much I am certain. I am watching it daily. We cannot install the new stuff though til we finish fixing all the little bugs that you all hate as much as I do. It is coming though. I work every day and night to see people are getting things fixed up and making life better.

    We put up a viral viewer for you to toy with and share work on http://gallery.conceptart.org is the link. We will open it up more once we finish up the basics here and complete beta testing with it. Then comes the tools and features. If you want to help make things better, please do post work so we can watch for error messages and make adjustments too. That includes here on the forums. That would be super helpful.

    The best thing folks can do is keep posting and sharing knowledge. When you see what we are working on you will know why. Soon...

    btw..the login issue is in part due to a bug we fixed with logging in. Those numbers will increase as folks log in again.

    Haha. Fair enough. Fucking technology, eh?

    That gallery thing looks cool by the way. What's it for?

    I didn't even realize the forums were still up until yesterday. When I go to the conceptart web page I just get redirected to the workshop page...

    The workshop is going to be an amazing event so we have a redirection for it right now. But you can easily access the forums from there as well.

    If you want to stay updated regarding this site when it's down, then our facebook group is the way to go:
    Official Conceptart.org

    -----------------------------------

    A new bunch of people is now also featured in the banner!
    Go and check their awesome art - it's totally worth it.

    If you want to get into the header as well, then just start (or keep) posting crazy good art and perhaps you'll be chosen within the next few weeks?
    Thanks!

    Same here. Checked it several times and got redirected to the workshop page and thought the forums are not up yet, just noticed the forum link today.

    Just an FYI, this site is still listed as malicious content. Some of us posted (used to) at work at the net security is medium/high. Blocks the site.

    Not sure if this has been addressed already, but I still have a hard time uploading images. They look like they're uploading, but they never show up in my attachment manager.

    @keeptime,

    I have the same issue whenever I scan my images in a certain format. CA just doesn't upload it..period. I had to drop it into photobucket and link that to the forum post. What a drag. Makes you almost not want to post anything.

    The uploader is still being worked on. It doesn't like small pictures under 100kb all the time for some unknown (as yet) reason. The problem is being addressed.

    Oddly enough the forums changing over was what allowed me to start posting at work again.
    I really hope there isn't more malware as that was the original reason that I kinda stopped visiting CA. I had no choice in the matter!

    when the site was hacked it was blocked at my work too. I contacted our anti virus program directly when the problem was fixed to ask them to re-evaluate the site. Trend Mirco did, and it was unlabelled as malicious.
