So everyone is having the same problem?! So it really is a database error?
Moderator-heroes! Please come and manifest yourselves!
Good to know.
Umm..... Some of my pics are still Offline.... What´s going on????
OH NOES!!! my pictures they be gone and stuff, I am upset but its not anyone's fault so I cant really be angry, oh I hope their not gone. I like this place so much better than every where else and I use it as my portfolio since I don't have a website of my own. I would hate to have to send people to my DA page to review my work. CA is just so much more respectable in a professional setting, this is really upsetting and I feel awful for bitching about it but I wish the best of luck to whoever has to deal with this.
Sorry Jason, hope I don't sound like an ass
Hi, I just read this whole thread, and am a bit confused. I have 2 questions:
1) Is it recommended that we use the attachment manager instead of external image hosting for all our sketchbook images? Or is this more about just the first thumbnail one? I have seen sketchbooks that use both approaches.
2) If we are doing a sketch as practice from/of something that is copyrighted, such as a video game character, a copyrighted photo, or a book about drawing with illustrations, as reference, as many sketchbooks here do, should we fill out the copyright section with something like: Copyright: drawing by me, photo ref by x. Or is there another recommended approach? I certainly do not incorporate copyrighted materials into any of my finished works, but practicing/learning to sketch is another matter. I'm just new here and starting my sketchbook so I wanted to get an answer at the beginning.
I actually went ahead and started a sketchbook using copy/paste images from my website. I havent had problems with it yet but realise I should be using the attachment thingy so oops! to the moderators. If it's a big problem, I'll reload them correctly.
I only figured out the attachment thingy by accident trying to upload a thumbnail image, haha, idiot that I am. If it's what people are talking about, it's the paper clip in the options across the top of the advanced posting box. Been using that for all my latest uploads so maybe thats an answer to your question, Aaron.
I am sorry maybe it isn't the right place to ask it but I need some help.I am new in here and I don't know so much things.I added my drawings in here but they are so big?what should I do?
Would it be frowned upon to start a sketchbook topic by posting pretty much everything that shows what you've been up to lately? So something like, 10, 20 wholly different sketches?
Hm... I don't exacly know where to ask this, so I'll post it here.
1) How long does it usually takes to get your own sketchbook thread posted or rather approved? Tried to make a new thread yesterday.. but still nothing ^^
2) I'm hosting my own website and in the past 6 years it was down for about 5 days... which I consider good enough to prevent the red X affair *g
And it is also easier for me because I dont have to upload the images twice, or to every website I want to post them again and again.. but I will bow to this rule if it is a necessity
im a lurker at the moment BUT i do want to start a sketchbook on here and I'm lost in how to start one? What are the steps in starting a sketchbook on here?
Thanks to who answers this.
Music helps me draw and relax
I'm having the same problem(s). It takes FOREVER to choose (mandatory) the categories and sub-categories for the images. On top of that, for me anyway, multiple times I attempted to upload images, and while everything seem to go fine procedurally, in the end the images weren't uploaded. Something is wrong.
I'm having the same problem as dad_mad. How long does it take to get a sketchbook approved? I did use attachments. Don't mean to sound annoying, I'm just really new here and other art forums I've been on didn't have this approval system, so I don't know how it works.
I'm new here. My young-adult sci fi webcomic, Firework, may be found here. It's not very good. Thanks in advance for helping me become a better artist.
I'm fairly new here too, so the attachment thing is a bit different. However, it won't ever seem to allow me to use the attachment to add my sketches in my sketchbook. It says something about security token...? What is that?
I totally agree with ConnyNordlund, it takes like forever to upload with the "manage attachments".
Is there a way to multiple files at once as opposed to one at a time?

the attachment manager is annoying as fudge and takes forever. I'm still gonna use it but you guys should work on that.
I am unsure if I can come here with my question, seeing as I don't see any other subforums where I can go to with technical problems. Could be me however, I just joined yesterday!
Anyway, I don't seem to be able to view pictures anymore in topics, or attachments if you will. I encountered this in the sketchbook forum, and I tried what I could, but I still can't see anything. So I'm wondering if there's something I'm missing or are all attachment images really down?
Edit: last night everything worked fine.

My sketchbook, updated regularly: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=245908
Hi guys, the new forum looks awesome. But unfortunatally I can't see the attachments in my sketchbook thread anymore. Do I have to reupload them again? Thanks for answering. =)
Edit: I'm again. I saw a minute ago, that the new forum is still under construction. So ignore this post pls^^
Is it possible to create thumbnails for uploaded images or make the forum automatically resize images so that they won't exceed forum width? If yes, how?
I was about to open a sketchbook but manually reducing the width (and height) of all my sketches would be a major annoyance.
It appears that images get uploaded and attached to posts as-they-are.
It would be nice to make smaller previews of them, like with external image hosters.
