October Featured Artist Voting!

29 September 2018 - 11:44 AM

Please vote for October's Featured Artist!

 

Nominations are listed below:

 

mcgraths

 

Artist name:  mcgraths
Link to gallery:  here+
Why are you nominating this artist (how have they been active this month, how have they improved, are they still trying to improve etc etc)?  This artist has shown an effort to be active in multiple areas of the board, though I think mostly noticeable through entering challenges. They also have been helpful in making comments for other artists by posting in help me choose threads and the PYLC. They have a great style and seem to want to keep expanding and growing as an artist.

 

Amortentia1992

 

Artist name: Amortentia1992
Link to gallery: +here
Why are you nominating this artist (how have they been active this month, how have they improved, are they still trying to improve etc etc)? Everywhere you go around the boards, Taylor is visible and being helpful. As well as taking great care of the Critique Corner, you can find her in PYLC with a new great graphic and a helpful comment to the person above. She's also filled some requests beautifully this month, and though she's only just moved to Staff Mod colours, it would be great to see her in glorious gold!

Welcome to the team!


Rule changes!

15 September 2018 - 05:20 AM

We've changed some rules recently - in the Requesting Arena and also with regards to the general content allowed on TDA in graphics :)
 
For the Requesting Arena we're adding a rule about the requester needing to provide a screencap of them using graphics made for them on sites that don't allow guests to view members' profiles (for example Pottersworld). This is implemented so that our Requesting Arena moderators don't have to make accounts on these sites in order to confirm graphics are being used and credited. Where this is needed, the moderators will post a reminder after the graphic is picked up and only mark the request as [COMPLETED] when the screencap is provided. We hope that this won't be too much of a bother for our requestors.
 
The second rule change I won't explain in detail because I've made a new topic noting what's allowed on graphics re: violence, smoking, profanity etc. As our site has grown older so has the member base so we've made these a bit laxer. You can find the topic HERE+.

 

As always, we're open for any and all questions!


Content Guidelines

15 September 2018 - 05:17 AM

TDA has a T code of conduct (what's acceptable for Teen Audiences) for both graphics as well as behavior.

 

What is allowed?

  • Mild swear words in accordance to the T rule. for examples, see the first chapter of this helpful tutorial on HPFT+ (M). THIS goes for both language on graphics as well as general language use.
  • No full on nudity or pornographic content (so a girl in a bikini is fine)
  • Weapons are okay and appearance of blood or gore is also okay but keep it to no graphic depictions of violence (ie someone obviously getting a body part cut off).
  • Random blood splatters
  • Cigarette smoke and cigarettes are okay (also includes pipes or vapes)
  • Liquor bottles, people drinking

What is not allowed?

  • Anything that does not fall under the above. This includes:
  • R rated swear words such as the f-word or the c-word,
  • full nudity

For artists: All graphics in your galleries must be safe for workAnything that does not fall under that must be put under a link with appropriate content warning.
Please be aware that for full or partial nudity, we will not accept anything pornographic even if placed under a link.

 

Respect all members! this means no posting anything offensive to any gender, sexuality, race, creed, ethnicity, religion, lifestyle, ... 

We do not tolerate harrasment or bullying of any kind. Any type or form of harassment will result in a ban.

 

For that reason, we would prefer, even though they are in accordance with the T rule that words such as sl*t, bitch or any word with the same derogatory meaning towards women are not to be used on TDA. No slurs of any kind are allowed on TDA, both on the forums and on graphics! You can see a list of slurs that we do not accept in the second chapter of this helpful tutorial on HPFT+ (M)


There are probably things that we've forgotten to include here - for any questions feel free to post them in this++ topic or send me or any of the other Administrators or Staff Moderators a PM and we'll do our best to clear up any confusion ;)
