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

<span>Registration FAQ</span>
  • 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.
    </li>
  • Is registration free?
    Yes, it is free.
    </li>
  • Can I change my username after I've registered?
    </li>
  • I never got the validation e-mail to complete registration with. Help!
    </li>
  • I want to keep my stories separate from my pictures. Can I register a second account for that?
    <span>No</span>, 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.
    </li>
  • Can I delete my registration?
    Yes. If for some reason you want your account removed, email cstdenis@ctgameinfo.com with your username and password, and he will remove it.</li>
- - - - -

<span>General Site FAQ</span>- - - - -
  • Why didn't the main site Login work? I didn't receive any error messages.
    </li>
  • Where is my FAC gallery page?
    </li>
  • Who chooses the 'Pictures of the Hour'?
    </li>
  • Why are some usernames in the Online List a different color than others?
    </li>
  • 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.
    </li>
  • 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.
    </li>
  • 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 quickly.
    </li>
  • Someone left a mean comment on one of my pictures. Can I delete it?
    Yes, users can now delete any comment on their pictures as well as any comment made by them. However, if this person repeatedly spams users with flames, notify the abuse team and link to such pictures. Only delete comments if they are truly uncalled for. This sux is pointless spam and can be removed if it bothers you, but the hand is a little small, and you could shade a little darker on the hair is constructive criticism. If you dont want anyone to make suggestions, please say so when you upload to avoid any confusion by those only wanting to be helpful. If you do have reason to report a commenter, dont delete the comments or there is no basis for me to act on the report.
    </li>
  • 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.
    </li>
  • 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.
    </li>
  • 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.
    </li>
  • Does this site use cookies?
    Yes. A cookie is stored on your computer to keep you logged in. When you log out the cookie is removed. A cookie is also used to limit you to only one multipopup per day.
    If you don't know what cookies are, don't worry, it's not really important.
    </li>
  • 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.
    </li>
  • How do I add/view/manage my Favorites?
    </li>
  • I can't comment on pictures anymore, it says I have to agree
    Go to add picture and agree there.
    </li>
  • Why does nothing happen when I click on 'Add Comment'?
    </li>
  • 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)</li>
<span>Submissions FAQ</span><span>Forum FAQ</span>I'll be adding more questions as they're asked or I think of them.

If you haven't found your answer here, feel free to ask in the General Help area.

[Edit: removed old/obsolete info - will work on splitting questions into separate threads]

A spoiler is to give away information about a movie, game, TV show, that ruins what is intended to be a surprise for the viewer.

You know how in Empire Strikes Back Vader says "Luke I am your father" ? If you told that to anybody who has not seen the movie, that would be a spoiler, because it's supposed to be a surprise the first time around.

Flash is valid on the net.

Export/save/whatever the command (I dont know flash that well) the file into a swf. You should then be able to view it in a web browser.

You can upload it here (Note: some of the previews during upload won't work for flash, just keep going anyway) or to your own website.

If you are uploading to your own site, note that it needs different HTML from a image. YOu need to use and/or tag(s), but flash can make that html for you.

Hey I use FlashMX... YEah. You can't save it becuase it will be a .fla file which is the base file. It is just the open editor file, not the finished movie. You need to click File > Export Movie and follow the onscreen instructions. If you have not imported any images (jpgs, gifs etc) then you can knock the 'Image/JPG Quality' down to zero.

The HTML to embed the exported .swf (does it mean Streaming Web File or something??? dunno....) file may be found here.
This HTML should work for all versions of flash animations. Just remember to change all the variables and NOT to change anything else... I'm sure, with some understanding of HTML, you should be able to guess which tags can be changed.

Hope this is of help to you, dude.

Because the lines distract attention from the image. They're ust plain annoying.

You know what, you can edit those lines OUT.

If you don't want to, start your own fanart site. Not our problem.

Just so you know, we've been over the whole lined-paper issue several times.

But hey, don't take my word for it, look it up yourself:

- Help > Linedpaper
- Site Discussion > I'm Not Liking This New Approval Crap
- Site Discussion > Quality Control > Lasher's Rant

I also did post a basic tutorial on one way to remove lines from notebook paper. It's not foolproof, but nor is it the only method. For example: If it's an ink drawing, you may simply be able to increase the brightness of the image until the paper lines wash out.

You mean ascii art? sure.

but only if you make it yourself. You can't use an automated ascii art generator/converter.

Hey, I was just in the RP section and I realized that it doesn't go towards my post count. I poster about 60 times in there today and I thought it was going towards my post count. Why don't RP post go towards your post count?

So many people RP, and RP in multiple successions, that it's not included.

Why?

Because really, you're not contributing much to the community at large, just the RP section of that. It's the same as the Spam section, I think. And possibly the unmoderated, though I've never posted there myself.

Okay, next thing to do is check your e-mail settings, just in case the FAC validation letter is getting treated like spam.

Oh, I've been wanting to ask, but here's the question anyways...

If someone is an "Inactive Site Helper" it obviously shows that they held the position of a site helper before, but why doesn't the title just go back to "Member"?

I noticed that for some people's post it say [Post Removed]. I'm just curious what this means.

EDIT: oh, & also I have the "remeber me" button checked, but I still have to log in when I come here. not that it's such a hassle logging in, but I'd liked to be logged in automatically.

It means that a moderator/admin edited their post and removed some info from it, and chose to leave a note that they did so.

I don't know the answer... I think it's mostly for bookkeeping, so that if a Site Helper goes on vacation, say, then that's a reminder about why they aren't involved in any staff tasks like AP, etc.
