    Offical information and Help for DSG

    The DSG

    · What is the DSG?
    The dsg is a collection of artists who draw from a randomly generated topic which is given each day, and DSG stands for Daily Sketch Group.

    · When does the DSG start?
    The topic is given at 1am (PDT) and ends at 12:59pm (PDT) so everyone has 23:59 hours to do it.

    · Where is dsg?
    The topics are listed in the dsg forum or at http://www.conceptart.org/dsg

    · Can we chat in dsg threads or should we only post art?
    YES! Talk and share opinions, references, questions and critiques

    · Is there a limit of entries?
    Nope, No limit at all-- Feel free to post as much as you are inspired to do.

    · Is there a dsg chatroom?
    We chat on the irc server irc.asylumnet.com in the channel #art . It is also the chatroom for conceptart.org and other friendly art forums. To get irc you must get a client, i suggest MIRC for windows users and for mac users to pick one from this http://www.irchelp.org/irchelp/mac/

    PDT? Which time zone is that?
    Don't just practice. Also Practice the right things, the right way.

    i'm little confused on it myself.

    the time it changes might change but it will still be 24hours so it generally doesn't matter

    ???

    What's the deal now? Is this the new form of dsg, opening the threads in advance?

    What's with the surprising moment at the chat when the subject is announced?

    It turned out to a common speed painting thread...

    Well, the SP4 thread on sijun has 140 pages... I think it's cool that there's 24hrs cuz I always miss the time. On the other hand there won't be any time triggered meetings in #sketch at a given time, but there wasn't that much dsg chatting going on there anyways since ppl were busy drawing.

    I'm not sure how good idea it is to reveal the threads in advance tho.

    Pacific Standard Time is probably some sort of US time, so it should be 6-9hrs after european time, which means that the deadline is 8am for me or so, I dunno.

    PDT is GMT-8. The new DSG opens at 1:00am PDT (US west coast), which translates to 9:00/10:00/11:00am for Europe.. Depending on time zone and daylight savings. It's 10:00am for Sweden, I think.

    Yeah well, I spent two days programming the whole thing on my own, so I think I deserved a night off.

    Pure sweetness... I was only able to make it to one DSG before, so this is huge. Great idea to change it to 24 hours.

    Not to be a stick in the mud, but what was wrong with the way it was?

    I'm not fond of forums, so I'd rather chat on IRC, and I liked the "live" feeling of the DSG... I am afraid this will disconnect me from the event (that is, the feeling that something is happening "now" will go away).

    EDIT: Btw, is the 90 minute limit voluntary now? I guess there's no way to check anymore, is there...

    1) I had to do too much work since my irc script was screwy

    2) Most people interested couldn't do it because of timezones

    PDT is also known as Pacific Time here in the states because that time zone consists of several states that stop at that ocean (I think). I was a little confused because I didn't know what the 'D' stood for (Daylight).

    Cool! Now I can do DSG again.


    Also, if you enjoyed hanging out for 90 minutes at 6:00, keep it up! If I get into a consistent habit, I will post and maybe we can form a splinter cell that meets at a more agreeable time.
