    Pixel arts rules

    Post  Sparkcaster on Wed May 20, 2009 10:57 am

    Just as a heads up, the forum rules apply here unless stated otherwise, so please abide by them
    Threads in general
    This section is only for the showcase of pixel art and sprites. Any other thread is prohibited and will be closed. Note that if you desire to create a trainer card, sprite comic or a general thread relating to pixel work, please do so over in the Pixel Projects section.
    Sprite Showcase Threads
    These require at least 4 sprites or more. Any threads containing less than that will be moved to the Spriters Showcase/Discussion thread. In addition, sprite sheets (an image containing different sprite frames), count as a single sprite, so just keep that in mind.
    Pixel Art Threads
    Can be made no matter how many pieces of work you have to show (eg. if you have less than four). This rule only applies to non-sprite related work. However, don't make a separate thread for each piece you make.

    Recolours and Fusions: Due to the constant cluttering of the forum by threads that are solely recolours/fusions we have opened a new, single thread where all Recolours/Fusions now go, which you can find here. Any threads solely about recolours/fusions will be locked, deleted or merged with the main thread.
    Constructive Criticism
    This is something that is regarded very highly in this section. It's one thing to say, "I like it" or "Nah, it doesn't really appeal to me", but it's another to add why you don't like it. It's a lot more helpful and allows those who you are critiquing to understand the good/bad points of their work and improve upon them. For a more detailed guide into giving c+c, look here.

    In addition, do not react harshly to someone's criticisms. In most cases, people are just trying to help you improve. Basically, if you can't take it, don't bother posting.

    Constructive criticism is important in this section, and we encourage the practice of it. That is why those found to ignore this rule will receive a warning for SPAM, and if it is continued than an infraction for Constant SPAM (3 points - 3 months) will be issued.
    Consecutive Posting
    In order to bump your work, we do permit consecutive posting, though there must be a considerable period of time between posts i.e. more than a day. In addition, if you are constricted by the image limit (maximum of 20 images per post), you are also permitted to post consecutively. That said, numerous posts in a row will not reflect well upon your thread.
    Monthly Contests
    Once a month, a user is permitted to hold a contest providing they have the consent of any moderator of this subforum. For more information, look at the Monthly contests thread.
    Sprite Shops
    These are not permitted. As stated above, this section is only for the showcase of pixel related works, and hence any sprite shop threads will be closed or edited with no excuses.
    Pixel Art Theft
    The Pok├ęCommunity takes a very strong stance against those found stealing and taking credit for the works of others, and hence they will immediately receive a warning if caught and proven. Remember that this section is for posting examples of your own work, and so stealing helps you in no way possible.

    Due to the seriousness of this offense those discovered will be punished with 4 points - permanent.
    Thread Revival
    If you have new content and you wish to post in an existing thread of yours that is older than 30 days, you may revive that thread.
