Pictorium Guidelines

All of the normal Forum Rules apply, plus:

 

Pictorium Guidelines

Follow these rules to help keep everything running smoothly.

Your attention, if you please.

Guidelines for Posting Images:

- Images in this forum must be created or edited in Paint.NET. This is paramount; we are a Paint.NET forum, not a GIMP or Photoshop forum. Images may be edited using another program, but the main portion must have been done to them in Paint.NET.

- All images must be hosted offsite. No uploads, please. We recommend Photobucket or ImageShack.

- Preview images must be smaller than 800 x 600 pixels. You are welcome to link to a larger image if you like.

- Plagiarism is strictly prohibited. No exceptions. If you claim to have created an image, and we discover that it was not yours, the image will be removed immediately and you will likely be banned on the spot. This does not mean that you cannot use stock images or source images, but you need to be careful not to represent someone else's work as your own.

- Posting links to your source images is recommended; that way we'll be able to see how 1337 you really are.

- Try not to post your image right after another user's. Allow some time for people to reply (or give an opinion yourself!)

- By posting your images in the Pictorium, you give permission for your work to be displayed in The Gallery (assuming, of course, that someone nominates your image and it is accepted).

- Do not post pictures on other people's threads. That's rude. If you want to post a picture on a thread other than your own, post it in one of the umbrella threads.

Guidelines for Commenting:

- Utilize constructive criticism. Being mean is not welcome or tolerated.

- Try for criticism that's more helpful than "looks good" - say why. Say what works, say what can be improved. It'll make everyone's skills better (including yours)!

- By the same token, keep the rules in mind. They will be enforced here just as much as anywhere else.

- Do not post pictures on other people's threads. That's rude. If you want to post a picture on a thread other than your own, post it in one of the umbrella threads.

Personal Thread Galleries

- You may create one thread in this forum for display of your artwork. Subsequent threads will be deleted.

- To that end, the "necroposting" rule is suspended in this forum...

- ...however, the "bumping" rule is not. (See the rules if you're confused by this)

- Anyone may post in a personal gallery; but when replying, please do not quote the image itself.

Keep this in mind when you post, and we'll all be happier!

A note to all users: Since some people haven't been paying attention to the rules (you know who you are ;-) ), and attaching images to their post rather than hosting them elsewhere, BoltBait has deleted all attachments from the Pictorium. Please check your gallery and make sure that you haven't had any attachments there; if you did, upload them elsewhere.

We don't have a whole lot of storage space, so we need to leave it for things like troubleshooting screenshots and such. Thanks for your help!
