    Exclamation *** Conceptart.org Faq *** New Users: Welcome! Please Read Before Posting!!

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND THEIR ANSWERS:

    Hi, n00bies! Sometimes it's hard to find stuff on a site you've just signed up at. I'm sure you'll all get used to it quickly. But, in the mean time, please take a moment to review this thread. Have fun!

    DOES THIS SITE HAVE AN FAQ SECTION?

    YES. It can be found here http://conceptart.org/forums/faq.php with exactly the same info as below. Look at the horizontal text menu bar above for the FAQ other useful links!

    HOW DO I UPLOAD A PICTURE TO THESE FORUMS?

    As of August 2006, please use the conceptart.org attachment manager to post your artwork. This ensures that your art will always be hosted by the conceptart.org servers. Unlike using Photobucket or Imageshack, your artwork will A) Show up as a thumbnail, and B) Never disappear from your thread. (If you want to update or change your art eventually, you may edit your actual post at any time to do so.)

    To post your art:

    1. Click "Post New Thread."
    2. Click the small Paperclip icon that appears in the New Thread editing window. It should be near the top center of your editing box. Or, scroll down until you see a button, "Manage Attachments."
    3. This button (or the Paperclip button) will open a pop-up window where you may then use the Browse funtion to find your art on your own computer.
    4. Once you have filled in the field that points to your art, click Upload. (Follow the Artwork Manager's chart recommendations for acceptable artwork sizes and acceptable file types.)
    5. Once your art is uploaded, click "Close" to close the Attachment Manager.
    6. You may now click "Submit New Thread," if you are ready, and your New Post will show your attached artwork.


    To remotely host a photo of yourself or other non-artwork related item, or to link to a picture that you don't need to archive here, you can use the image tags found in the New Thread editor. Click the button that looks like a mountain with a yellow sky and little sun to link to an image. Or, if you're a more advanced forum user, wrap image tags around the link to the artwork manually by using brackets.

    HOW DO I CHANGE MY SIGNATURE?

    Make note of the 2 links that these yellow arrows are pointing to:

    Near the top of your browser, you will see the ConceptArt.org horizontal menu bar. User CP will take you an entire menu of User Options. Here you will find all links on the left to manage your signature, avatar, user title, user profile, etc. Clicking QuickLinks will do the same, only a little quicker.

    HOW DO I CHANGE MY AVATAR?

    Click UserCP or QuickLinks found in the top menu bar.

    HOW DO I CHANGE MY TITLE?

    Click UserCP or QuickLinks found in the top menu bar.

    HOW DO I CHANGE MY LEVEL/RANK? WHAT'S THIS MEAN?

    When you see "Level 8 Gladiator: Thracian" by your avatar and user name, don't fret! These are just fun ranks based on your post count. You can't change them yourselves; they update automatically.

    HOW DO I CHANGE MY USER NAME?

    YOU CANNOT CHANGE YOUR USER NAME unless you beg a site adminastrator to do so. A list of people in charge can be found here: http://conceptart.org/forums/faq.php...q_new_faq_item Note: Despite the fact that I've written this Lounge version of the FAQ does not make me a person in charge, thus I cannot change your user name.

    WHAT'S A SKETCHBOOK?
    • CAN ANYBODY MAKE ONE?
    • HOW DO I MAKE ONE AND WHAT DO I PUT IN IT?

    A sketchbook, or SB as many users here refer to it, is exactly what it sounds like: A collection of your sketches. Yes, ANYBODY can start a sketchbook. How? You go to the Sketchbooks section and press Post New Thread. Give it a spiffy title and post your art. You will receive comments on how to approve from anyone who wants to help you out. PLEASE CLICK HERE TO READ THE SKETCHBOOK INFO THREAD BEFORE CREATING ONE.

    CAN I USE ANYBODY'S ARTWORK HERE?

    Click and READ this for that information: http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=31861

    I NEED AN ARTIST FOR A PROJECT. CAN ONE OF YOU HELP ME?

    You will need to post in the Jobs section found here http://conceptart.org/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=12 . If you can't afford to pay an artist for their work, you will need to post in the NON-PAYING Jobs section found here http://conceptart.org/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=44 . Please read the STICKIES in each section before posting your project.

    I'M BUYING A WACOM OR GRAPHICS TABLET. WHAT SHOULD I GET?

    Click this link http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=73139 for all tablet answers. Please do not start another new thread on this subject UNLESS you absolutely can't find the info you're looking for in the Graphics Tablet thread.

    OMGZ, Asoir! I forgot to add that question!!

    So I was thinking that if we get more of these questions in the lounge, we can save our typing muscles and just link to this thread.

    Hey, I'm new here so please forgive my shameful ignorance when it comes to these things, but I've just started a new thread in sketchbooks. I posted just one picture to start with and so to add more pictures I have just clicked on post reply and added my pictures as an attachment- is this the right way to do it? Or is there a button that I'm not seeing that I'm supposed to use to update my thread with new pictures? When I go into my account, it says that I havn't got any items submitted anyway- I'm a little confused, but that's probably because I've done it all wrong!!! Please help!

    CigarSarah, Welcome to conceptart.org.

    I just checked your sketchbook. You're using image tags, and the images are showing up. But it'd be better to take advantage on CA's attachment manager. So you can just load your work right from the website itself. Click the paperclip icon to get to the attatchment manager.

    To make a new post yes, just post a reply in your SB and add new images.
    Hope that helps.

    -Loren

    /EDIT You have to press "go advanced" in the post window to get to the attatchment manager.

    is there any way to save your old images beside reuploading them all to the ca server? i'm thinking of about 400 pics i've made at the last workshop f.ex.(with commentary). and that'd be a sh*tload to reconfigure.
