Just close and reopen the thread... then you can post again, no?

Generally there should be a rule about personal art threads. And I would also appreciate a collection of important links, may it be in the rules or in a new sticky thread for it. Lounge, Request thread etc. could be linked there so we don't have too many stickies.

Works for me, but sometimes you have to wait a little while.. No biggie..

I have to say I pretty much like it as it is. I certainly don't think more rules is a good idea. Then every second post will just become a "hey n00b read tha rulez"-post. Pehaps there are some rules that can be made or explained in a simpler way even.

Yeah in my experience it's only like 60 seconds until you can post again, not that big a deal.

On the subject of of rules and shenanigans for the most part I think things are fine. Think everyone knows my opinion on regs being mean to newcomers and going overboard on the backseat modding, which hasn't really been an issue lately anyway.

We don't have too many rules anyway, can't really think of anything that should be added/changed. Would be nice to get things like the Request Thread stickied, which could increase the chance of people noticing it and post in there instead of making a thread and needing to get redirected.

I have a complaint.

I don't want to say it though. Mostly because I don't know how to word it. The first half of what Ben said is kind of what I wanted to say but not really.

Also unblock me. Stop being mean and pretend I am a newcomer.

On the subject of the picturesstarter; I think the rule should be maintained, but shouldnt be enforced that harshly, if poeple dont have a starterpic, give them a chance to post one. if they dont, the thread can still be locked.

I second that notion. Also the idea of a list of important links/threads made sticky sounds reasonble..

I second that notion.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but that's basically how it's handled in most cases, isn't it?

Yeah, I'm a strong supporter for that idea.
I still think we should maintain the starter pic rule, or else people will just show up and slap a link and say "hey look at my gallery". But we should give them a chance to rectify themselves before we slap em with a lock. That usually tends to discourage people from re-making a thread properly.

rules are fine how they are now, and how theyre handled now, just gotta stop going overboard sometimes with backseat modding, if its been stated its against the rules, or if you know it is, dont post there, only additions i can think of is

- 1 personal thread is allowed, but other threads are allowed for personal projects, example would be veros art group shot or a similiar project, like the abobo arcade machine
- something about discussion threads, or discussions should be kept to personal threads or the lounge

I'm sure I speak for the masses when I say that I (we) would like to see my art thread stickied at the top of the page with a flashing golden border, thank you

also: I know it will never happen and it's not really part of the rules, but yeah, multiple image upload or [img] tags would be TOO DICE. it's a personal preference, not a huge issue, probably a waste of the twenty seconds it took to type this out

The problem with multiple image uploads is that it takes the focus off of individual pieces. I know I wouldn't feel compelled to respond to a post with 5 pieces on it, especially since I would have to specify which piece I was talking about.
Besides that, what happens when you post all your art in the first post? What keeps a thread afloat before people start responding (for instance, it took me like 6 posts of my own pieces before anyone responded to any of my work) is that it's bumped with more art, but if you get all your art out of the way in one post and don't get a response, you're screwed.

good points luxemborg, but personally when I update an art thread on the various forums I frequent, it's to post wips and recent sketches in one or two large posts of work so that I can receive broad critiques on the elements of my technique that need work. I can usually figure out what is or isn't working in a single piece by myself and I really don't care what people think about just one in particular--telling me that the foreshortening on an arm in a picture isn't going to help me develop my all-around technique

and man, I do not want to make twenty new posts just to show the sketches I've done in the last three or four days. again, all personal preference and nbd, but still~!

I agree 100%, the one image only per post has always been incredibly inconvenient.
The flash forum has a code engine, why not an image engine for the art forum?
or img tags

Considering that the Art forum pretty much specifically deals in images, it's a bit of a no-brainer to let users dump entire gallerias at a time - at least in two or threes, because at the very least it would make things a lot more convenient. Otherwise, yeah, the rules are pretty much fine as is, and although a lot of newbies don't seem to read them I think they explain things just fine.

Actually I'm down with the one picture per post limit, I actually get annoyed when browsing other forums and I see people dump a shitload of images or super-massive ones that break the forum or get resized. The thing that bugs me the most are forums where people have multiple signature pics. Seriously, do you really need that?

But, I think, there are some good reasons for the image constraints here on NG. Like; hosting the images on NG and not allowing outside images linked through BBCode is a good way to prevent tomfoolery such as image switching and dead images, and the one picture per post limit keeps bandwidth down (since we tend to not allow general image dumping threads and image spamming). I'm sure there are other reasons as well, those are just my guesses.

I perfer to listen to dubstep or the like, myself, something with either a either beat or a choir behind it. Hell, even heavy metal does it for me - never tried psychedelic rock before, but it doesn't sound too bad so I might give it a try (Sound too bad, as in the name of it. Never actually listened to it before).

I prefer to listen to anything that does not really drag me to low to the curb any thing slow or Sad like some of that Emo crap can sometimes be a bit of a De-motivator ,So I want something that is constantly active or something that is stable in a way that I can get a rise out of it

Art Forum Rules
- Can we not provide any leniency towards discussion threads? The thing with the lounge is it's not necessarily the first place people go to (since they're not regs). Also discussion topics whizz past just like that - I've barely caught this one.
- The art request rule needs to be clearer, or developed. Something like "Art Requests may only be made in the art request thread, along with how much you're willing to commision." There should also be something where programmers with 3.5 BA+ CAN post request threads for their games. These should be the guys we welcome with open arms, not dump off in the request thread.
- Something about personal art threads, say "Please don't make a thread especially for one pic, unless it's for a project."
- Don't forget forum moderator's birthdays.
