You may not double-post in any gallery, and you may not make posts just to say "update" within your gallery. This is considered both spamming and gallery bumping, which are disallowed on TDA.

Other sites allow this, but too often in the past it has been used for nefarious purposes, mostly for artists to make their gallery noticed by others. There are legitimate ways of doing this within the Critique Corner, so if you want more comments, please go to that forum.

If you are caught double-posting or bumping your gallery, you will first receive a post or PM from a moderator requesting you to stop. If you continue these actions, you will be warned 10%. Member Artists are liable to have their artist-statuses revoked, while upper-ranked artists could face demotion and/or being placed on the promotion blacklist.

It's really frustrating that I even have to make an announcement like this because it is one of TDA's oldest rules, not to mention that making such posts in your gallery is entirely nonsensical. If you see anyone doing this, please report them to the moderators. smile.gif

Bumping this, because I still see it happening from time to time.

*sigh* Bumping AGAIN because I just saw it happen in a staff gallery and a few other places. We really shouldn't have to keep doing this, people, just read the notices!

Yes, that's alright. It's just when maybe one person posts a comment and then you respond right away with an update that's the problem.

I just want to clarify that it's OK to double post in the UFG section. Like, if you ask to put it on hold and then come back a few days later, because then sometimes the artist doesn't realize it if you just edit the old post.

Yes, you can double post then. This post only pertains to those artists who bump their galleries needlessly.
