Help Topic: Image Submission Guidelines

General Image Guidelines

First off, all images must follow the DPWR Code of Conduct. No pornography of any sort will be tolerated. Nudity is something we would prefer not to see here, but we understand that in some instances, such as statuary and animal drawings, these things obviously appear, and if done tastefully, they are permitted. If you are unsure if an image is appropriate, please contact a moderator or administrator before submitting it.

Post ONLY your own artwork. Posting of another person's artwork should be done only with their permission. Images uploaded without permission from the original creator will be removed, and if necessary, the poster will be banned. Ripping art from other artists and claiming it as your own will not be tolerate, and the offending user will be banned. This is known as plagiarism, which is illegal. Stealing art from other art sites and posting it here OR stealing art from this site and posting it elsewhere both fall under this rule. Please, be considerate. These artists work very hard to create the images you see. Don't steal them.

Uploading images to either the Members' Gallery or a forum which permits image uploading for the purpose of displaying them on another website is prohibited. Abuse of this privilege will result in your uploading privileges being revoked.

Please note that free web hosts such as Geocities, Angelfire, and Tripod do not allow their users to place images from their webspace on other websites (this is known as remote-linking). If you have an account with one of these services and wish to display your images from your website, you will have to link to the image on your site, and in most cases you will have to have the image placed in an HTML document for others to be able to view it.

All images uploaded to the website must be no larger than 1024 x 768. 800 x 600 is preferred for images unless you are uploading a wallpaper. If you need assistance in resizing your images, please contact an administrator, moderator, or post in the Feedback / Support forum.

Member Gallery Restrictions

Members are permitted to create one personal gallery in the Members' Gallery area of the website, and may store up to 25 images in this gallery. Subscribers to the DPWR+ service may create three galleries and have up to 30 images in each gallery.

If you have any questions about these policies, please feel free to contact an administrator or moderator, or start a topic in the Feedback / Support forum. We would be happy to help you.
