    Here we have a different set of rules, for some obvious reasons. Mods, edit at your discretion, again.

    --READ AND FOLLOW ALL OF THESE--

    1. Commentary is not allowed. It may sound harsh but the request forum is not here to gawk at. You request something, you pick it up, you leave. Commenting on a picture in a spammy way is not allowed. The end.

    --CONCERNING REQUESTS--

    2. Post in an already-made topic to request something. Posting a whole new topic just to ask for a banner or a picture makes the forum cluttered, and, well, you just don't want that. If there is no topic to request what you want, try PMing someone to see if they'll take a special request. Otherwise, you'll just have to look elsewhere.

    3. The creator of the request thread has the right to reject requests. If you think that someone's request is too hard for you to do or if it's just plain unsensible, then you as the thread starter have the full right to say "no" to anyone who requests. If the requester continues to harp you for not taking their request, then it could be considered harassment and there WILL be consequences.

    4. All applicable art rules should be followed. Meaning, any art rule that could apply here is ALWAYS in effect in the subforum. No exceptions, again.

    5. Banner Making Rules. Those who make banners heed these rules to the letter-

    Here we only allow banners to be 468 x 100 (Width x Height)

    You can make them bigger but the [ banner ]blah[ /banner ] (-spaces) will have to be implemented and that will make the banner look Tacky

    You can go less so you can have 300x100, 90x100, 400x50 etc. but nothing higher than 468 x 100

    6. File Format Rule. From now on, any picture/sprite with .BMP format are not allowed in sigs. If you have problems saving to another format (.PNG, .JPG, etc.), PM me and I'll be glad to change it. This is was done to help the users who have slow internet connections for loading the forums. .BMPs just make the loading slower.

    7. 11/26/06 -- Discussion in request threads is no longer allowed. I've noticed a lot of request threads dissolving into side discussions rather than requests, and as harsh as it may sound, I'm going to prohibit that from now on. Please do not start off-topic chatter in threads that should be pure business. There are PMs and other threads for that.

    Thanks,
    MS + SD

    Um... I have a question: If you have a request that's to all artists, you don't just want one banner or picture or whatever, but you want, for example, all pictures all artists here have of a certain pokémon, can I post it in a seperate topic?

    Geh. Shouldn't this be sticky? Or this might become old and people won't read it... Unless the read the Fan Art (not requests) section...

    If it's a general request to all, yes, it can be allowed, including collecting pictures of a certain Pokemon. But if it's a thread made for just one picture, sprite, banner, etcetera, nope, no can do.

    That goes along with Dragonfree's question. Yes, since it is a general request to all artists willing to do it, and it will likely be in a series and is not for just one picture, so it's okay.

    I think it's a bit unfair that you're forced to request at somebody's thread. There are people around who don't make request threads, but are ready to do a few requests they see and are interested in anyway.

    So by no commentary you mean this? :

    person 1: I take requests for pokémixes!*posts examples*
    person 2: can I have a poochyena/spoink mix?
    person 1: sure! ^_^ *posts pic*
    person 2: wow you're really good at this!*gets warned by a mod*

    I'm going to have to agree with Snare. I like to recieve constructive criticism to help me become better. And it seems even less sensible for me to take all my sprites and post them in regular Fan Art just so I can get CC. Although my post count would finally begin rising...

    Also, I confine myself mostly to my one thread. I used to use it to chat with the common requesters and to sometimes rant just because I viewed it as my thread, a place I can express myself. Are you saying I shouldn't do it there any more?

    ShinyAbsol: Search back, and if you don't find it, then post saying you failed to find it, because otherwise people are likely to snap at you (unfortunately) if you fail to clarify you did indeed look.

    Snare: If they just confirm they got it with a compliment on the side, no, it's not going to be warned on. But if someone random, person 3 in that case, just waltzes in and says "Wow you're really good! 10000/10!", then that's bad.

    Wisest: While I'm beginning to get questionable myself, it all comes down to judgement. The request forum isn't really a good place to use for chat, and the thread would indeed, in time, become cluttered and more of a general thread than a request thread, and that's defeating the purpose of the forum, for the most part.

    But could there be a Official thread for requesting to anybody? Like if you wanted something done but you couldn't find a thread that makes them you can post it on that thread and someone can make one for you. Just a thought.

    awww.. .bmp is fun to use. it makes people mad

    This is good since most people here have slow connections, and with all the sigs in an average thread, it would take forever to load on their connections.

    I love bmps. I find it funny just annoying people with them. I don't understand why people can't get the fact that sometimes I'm too lazy to move my sprites to irfanview, change them, and upload them. But oh well, it's faster than asking you to upload them for me.

    do we have to change pics even if it's not in our sigs? for example, I take people's requests, and we don't post them in our signatures

    Well, the people who ask for requests might put it in their sigs. So therefore it'd be best if all requests from now on be done NOT in .bmp format. o.o

    It's true that the only save file I have in my Paint is .bmp...but thanks to a friend, I found a website which can convert my .bmp into .png, so I don't have worries there.
