    Hi,

    as some of you might already know we’re currently trying out having an oldschool image board for FFStv related fanart. Before giving you the link I’d like to tell you a few things about how to use it. Bullet points awaaay!

    * You may upload your own and other people’s artwork, unless they have asked for it to not be reposted.
    * You must add the artist’s name in the tags and, if you’re taking it from somewhere else without also being the artist, also fill out the source field with a link to that location. If it’s our forum, please click the post number in the upper right to get a link that points directly to the post with the image.
    * The board uses the same logins as this one and should be considered a part of the VGA website, even though it’s not integrated into WordPress very well. Some of the image boards account management features won’t work, like changing your password from there. Just ignore that stuff for now.
    * Tags are separated by spaces, not commas. Multiword tags are to_be_written_like_this.
    * Speaking of tags, they are the reason we’re doing this, pretty much. So please try to add nice, descriptive ones. Look at the images already uploaded for examples. Take a bit of time to think about it.
    * You can upvote and favorite images. Since this is to be used for preparing the long-promised fan art episode ratings might play into what will be shown.
    * This should go without saying, but please don’t upload anything you wouldn’t upload here or on the Facebook page. That means no explicit nudity, for example.
    * Use this thread to discuss the details or ask questions.

    Fill that in. Seriously.

    That about sums it up. So, here’s the link. Yes, it’s called that.

    Awesome! Question: should we be actively hunting for old fanart to transfer onto the site?

    *Stretches back*

    I’ve got a lot of fart to release on this new site… :P

    That being said, feel free to add any tags I may’ve missed! :D

    So will any member have access to uploading/changing tags? Or any safeguards to protect against people trolling? (And i mean actual trolling not the “trolling” chat does.)

    Ooh, how about banners? Should we upload them to there too? Or should we leave that to you, since you probably have a nicely sorted database of them

     

    Edit: Also some of these pictures are gigantic! Should we do any sort of scaling down before uploading?

    It’s just as protected against people uploading junk as this website.
    Please don’t scale images down.

    Next question, I know it’s probably obvious, but I want someone to tell me that it’s true first.
    If I’m linking it from the FB page, should I just use the persons full name as the artist credit? It seems they don’t mind being associated with it, since they linked it in the first place to the FB page, but it still feels weird.

    Tag discussion here or a separate thread?

    If you don’t know someone’s nickname please add their Facebook profile name, yes. Beware though, sometimes people repost images on Facebook that they didn’t originally make.

    Please discuss tags here for now, yes.

    How specific should we get with tags? I have seen some places where they would tag a picture with ‘hat’ if someone was wearing a hat. Personally I think that’s a bit too specific; but is that what you are looking for?

    Honestly, I don’t know how much detail we really need for tagging but at least for now I’d say we can use tags like “hat” and “gun”. The reason is that people (especially Frashy-Frash) might remember some piece of fanart and try to search for it, but too little depth would yield a ton of results to wade through. Sure, “hat” might be a bit much, but if there’s a spaceship or a car it should be tagged IMO, even if it’s just in the background.

    There’s some fanart here and here. I’ll send a notice on the DA group that this imageboard is in the works. Link won’t be included until its open to the public.

    I’ll get my butt moving on those DA pictures over the weekend, unless you think people would object to being put there?

    I’m thinking “extract” as a tag for GIFs that have been taken from the show. Sound good?

    As long as they don’t explicitly forbid rehosting it should be fine I think, just make sure they don’t have that on their profile page or on the images. In case someone doesn’t want their stuff on our site they can send me a quick note and I’ll take it down.

    I would say “screencap” and “animated” cover that already.

    This is great. I did some heavy FArting, trying to scour at least most of the stuff I’ve made over time. I’ll refine the tagging tomorrow when I’m less tired. It’s a great place to find FArts!

    So, maybe there should be some sort of rule about no straight screencaps, they seem pointless.

    Photoshopping images straight from the show  is one thing, but just cropping Fraser’s face isn’t really art.

    Has there ever been cases where uploaded fanart just disappears from your uploads? I could’ve sworn I made a submission a few months ago. That or I’m utterly crazy. Could the latter.
