Is this how far the "no photos" rule applies?

 

I didn't make the Rules @Djisves I'm just the one (who gets jumped on) who tries to keep the rules the same for everyone.  This has been the rule since 2016.

 

2. Your entry must be 100% made using Paint.net. Don't use another image editor. Don't use stock images/photos (in full or parts thereof).

Yep, @Pixey is correct.

 

The idea is for you to create everything yourself in paint.net.  If the language of Rule #2 is ambiguous, we can amend it.

 

As a reminder, the rules were not created by some dictator; they were created in an open discussion.  So, in effect, we all wrote the rules, based on the consensus of that discussion.

Top marks for ambiguity in a sentence containing the word 'ambiguous'.

Amend which?

 

The language of Rule #2. Or  the Rule #2.

@ANONYMISS & @Djisvesif the two of you go back to the very first page you will see the discussion of the rules & how they came to be. If you don't like the rules, don't enter the competition. Nit-picking is not going to help you win the competition but shows mean-spiritedness.

I was genuinely surprised that an eMap I made from a photo (and then I used said eMap to create the shine in my Bishop) broke the rules. I did comply with @Pixey's decision immediately and uploaded a new image; I even said I was going to in the same post I expressed my surprise. I'm not nitpicking and I find the reaction to my post a bit over the top.

The idea is fine, the wording is fine, the rule is fine. I like it and I vote to keep it as it is. I understand this competition is to showcase what can be done using PDN alone.

I just wish that everybody follows the rules.

Which Competition @Manc?  You have posted this in the OotF thread.  Do you mean the SOTW?

Had to use image host.

A reason would be helpful.🙃

 

Every user has a small allotment of space they're allowed to use when uploading graphics to the message board. You've used up all of your allotment.

 

Going forward, you'll need to find somewhere else to host your image files.

Thanks @BoltBait

Didn't realise that, no big thing.

Just nice to know. Cheers.😀

I'll use image host from now on.🙃

Just made a lot of space on the board.

I just thought it only applied to a persons gallery.

@BoltBait, how do we remove the files from here and link them to an offsite? I now use NicPicHost but in the beginning I did post images directly on here.

 

You can manage your attachments here:

From there, you can sort by type and size.

I asked that very question about eMaps on April 26, 2018. I never got a direct answer, but in the end concluded they were forbidden. I can see both sides of the argument: on the one hand, the use of photos is forbidden; on the other hand, they're separate from the object being created. Creating decent environment maps is quite difficult (at least for me), which is why I used variations of the same one in a bunch of entries.
