PostPosted: Thu May 18, 2006 8:19 pm    Post subject: Fanart Central Site FAQ Reply with quote

Before creating a new topic, please check to see if your answer is here.

Seriously.

Registration FAQ
  • How do I register on FAC?
    From the FAC main page, Click on the Register button beneath the Fanart Central banner, and fill out the form. Button is not visible if you are logged in, but only one account per person so that shouldn't matter. All registrations must be processed from the FAC main page; DO NOT use the "Register" link on the forums.
  • Is registration free?
    Yes, it is free.
  • Can I change my username after I've registered?
  • I never got the validation e-mail to complete registration with. Help!
  • I want to keep my stories separate from my pictures. Can I register a second account for that?
    No, there is no need to split your gallery across multiple accounts, and furthermore, posessing and/or using multiple accounts can also be grounds for banning.
  • Can I delete my registration?
    Yes. If for some reason you want your account removed, email support@fanart-central.net with your username and password, and it will eventually be removed.




General Site FAQ

  • Why am I not logged in to the main site? I didn't receive any error messages.

  • Where is my FAC gallery page?

  • Why are some usernames in the Online List a different color than others?

  • Can I be notified when someone comments on one of my pictures?
    Yes, click on edit profile and check the box at the bottom to be notified through email when a comment is given. Obviously this will not work if you dont have a valid email, make sure its valid. And those using AOL make sure you are set to accept mail from fanart@ctgameinfo.com.

  • Why do I never get any comments?!
    Interact with others. Comment on pictures, post on the forums, and generally just get to know people. Most people are happy to look at your work if you take the time to talk to them. Instead of waiting for them to come to you, go to them.

  • Someone submitted a stolen a picture. What can I do?
    Notify the Fanart Central Abuse Team at abuse@ctgameinfo.com with the following information:
    ~ a LINK to the stolen image
    ~ a LINK to the original (on FAC or another site)
    This will ensure your report be taken care of in a timely manner.

  • Someone left a mean comment on one of my pictures. Can I delete it?
    Yes, you may remove comments left on your pictures, stories, or profile page. However, you may NOT remove comments that you have left on other people's pages.

    If a comment is truly uncalled for, you may also report the user to abuse@fanart-central.net . Even though the comment was removed from your page, it will still be available for FAC site staff to review.

  • I sent an email to cstdenis, but nothing changed. Whats wrong?
    Cstdenis does read all email, but it may take him awhile to take care of the problem due to the large amount of email he receives. Be patient, and the problem will be taken care of as soon as possible. If it is a report of stolen images, it will be forwarded to the Abuse Team, so please direct all reports directly to them.

  • I want to request a drawing of something. How can I do this?
    If you want to request a picture from a specific artist, you can leave your request as part of a comment on the artist's profile page, contact them via e-mail. Contacting them this way makes it much easier for them to respond and ask for clarification if needed. If you want to make a general request (to anyone interested), you can start a new thread in the Requests forum section. or reply to an already existing thread in that forum section. Some artists may prefer to do an art trade, where you do a request for them in exchange.

  • I want to link to Fanart Central on my own site. Do you have a banner?
    A variety of banners are available at the bottom of the links page. If you want to make your own, feel free. Notify cstdenis and hell add it for others to use as well.

  • Does this site use cookies?
    Yes. A cookie is stored on your computer to keep you logged in, and when you log out the cookie is removed.

    Note that the forum area uses a different set of cookies than the FAC main site, so logging in from the main site will not carry over to the forums, you will have to log in again.

  • How do I edit one of my pictures?
    Login and go to your gallery page. There will be an edit link beside each picture's name. Click it and change whatever you want changed.

  • How do I add/view/manage my Favorites?

  • I can't comment on pictures anymore, it says I have to agree to the new rules.
    Review the rules, as they may have been updated since the last time you read them.

  • Why does nothing happen when I click on 'Add Comment'?

  • I am not being notified of new comments....
    -- Make sure you have checked the box requesting comment notification in your profile (click edit profile on the site to check)
    -- Make sure your email address is correct in your profile.
    -- Make sure your mailbox is not full
    -- Make sure you can accept mail from fanart@ctgameinfo.com (some ISPs like AOL can block mail from people unless you specify to allow mail from them)

I don't know if this would be the right place to ask or not, but why are some joined dates set in the seventies? I know I look good, but I'm not that old. Laughing

Okay. Browse the FAQ, you'll find the answer. Oh, and you're basically asking the same question twice (or at least it's the same answer). And one more thing, if you delete a story, it's gone for good, so be careful.

I've got two pictures, one wouldn't let me submit it cos it said "Database error" but when i tried to upload the other, it came through perfectly. What is wrong with my first picture? i would guess it would be me rating the content wrongly, but you guys don't work THAT quickly, do you?

Hover your mouse over each icon and a tooltip will pop up explaining what it is. Many of the icons come in several different colors, each indicating the intensity of it.

- Featured artwork

- Language (profanity)
- Nudity
- Racism
- Sexual content
- Spoiler information
- Violence
- Yaoi (male homosexual content)
- Yuri (female homosexual content)

For more information, see the Ratings FAQ.

do blends and wallpapers count as fanart? Because some people work really hard on them. I think that should be okay if you give a link to the website where you got the pictures, but I understand if it's not.

In general, no, because the source materials used are not the work of the artist submitting it.

It's not being accepted anymore. There's a new site established for that.
