    Club Like Accounts Aren't Allowed?

    The only thing here, is that some were using some of these club accounts to cause trouble, especially in terms of politics, especially in light of recent town-hall meeting disruptions and "tea parties" IRL-- And causing trouble, including inflammatory statements and the like, actually ARE...

    AUP Update - Aug 27 (Minor Update)

    I wonder if anyone noticed that the UPDATED policy actually allows more freedom than the ORIGINAL version? :) d.m.f.

    Photography

    Hopefully, I'll beat the admins ('Neer, particularly) in saying this, but any particular artistic rendering- drawing, painting, sculpture, 3D rendering (outside the "Poser" debate- that's elsewhere!)- is kosher... Just not actual photography of such, even in beastpaint or photomanipulation...

    Photography

    I agree with Varka, above, and emphasise that CLARITY OF DISTINCTION does need to be made, as per my previous post in this thread. As it stands, the distinction isn't really THAT clear. d.m.f.

    Flooding

    Suggestion: Simply limit number of submissions per day? I would advise 10. (Yerf used to have 5.) As for resolution, I agree with the above suggestion, but would like to make it the following: the EQUIVALENT in pixels- 2,457,600px- regardless of dimension. Filesize limit, otherwise, should stay...

    Photography

    I would strike reference to quality and say photography in general UNLESS IT'S OF A SPECIFICALLY ALLOWED NATURE/SUBJECT should be in Scraps, with those that may be so specifically allowed on the main gallery. I would also make clear the difference between nudity/pornography and sexually-explicit...

    Music and Audio

    I would strike the separate entry for mashups and simply include it with the remixes clause. For one thing, as written, the requirement for a mashup turns it into a remix, and no longer a mashup. Allowing mashups under the same criteria as remixes, above, would still make mashups as mashups by...

    FYI - Acceptable Upload Policy (AUP) Update

    As per numerous US Supreme Court decisions (Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders v. "Debbie Does Dallas", Acuff-Rose v. Campbell, for example), prurient content is allowable and protected as per the First Amendment, providing that it's not in violation of obscenity laws. The status of "cub art" (allowable...

    FYI - Acceptable Upload Policy (AUP) Update

    Both these points I agree with. I personally do clean-up (audio restoration) of public-domain recordings as a hobby, but have been reluctant to even ask whether this was allowable or not (I generally assume not, so...), so it's a moot point, but yes, I think the prohibitions of ANY submissions...

    FYI - Acceptable Upload Policy (AUP) Update

    Being that this is an ENTIRELY SUBJECTIVE matter, rather than limiting to acceptable content, it's something that is entirely challengable (and should be), and thus should be stricken, insofar as image quality. As for collections, I have no qualms with these being placed in Scraps. Quality and...

    Memes Can Not Enjoy Their Sandwich

    Except the modification, with permission to do so, is yours, thus NOT violating the "By You, For You" clause. A similar analogy is colourising someone else's art (again, WITH permission), or remixing someone else's song. ALOT of FA would fall by the wayside because of your interpretation...

    Memes Can Not Enjoy Their Sandwich

    This is absolutely correct. d.m.f. (who has studied copyright law over the years...)

    Site down again?

    Actually, it's BSD, not FreeBSD. It's fully licensed. d.m.f.

    Yiffstar does. d.m.f.

    What is Terragen (and why it should be allowed in FA)

    Yes? Hello, FruityLoops is so named because of, guess what- It uses LOOPS! And it has as much relevance based on what constitutes a "generator", and how much user-level creativity is involved- REGARDLESS of whether or not you like the genre. That part is irrelevant. d.m.f. (who prefers...

    What is Terragen (and why it should be allowed in FA)

    How is this any different to techno music made in FL Studio, which is allowed on FA? I think that instead of focusing on the "generator" aspect, that it should be determined on how much control the user has for originality. Some things I can understand not being allowed, but I think the weight...

    Site down again?

    That's because (as I just said) OS X's core happens to be BSD Unix. d.m.f. (Who has seen the BSD Devil on MacOSX packaging, so... :P )

    Why is "Submissions:" still inaccurate?

    Just to add, the journal count is also off. d.m.f.

    Blocked Users?

    Trust me on this, based on personal experience- IP bans don't work unless it's for a broad swath of addresses (ie: 127.0.0.*), but yes, IPs are NOT immutable and will change. d.m.f.

    heart plz account :3

    This person was using an entire account for the mere sake of using the avatar icon as an emoticon, and nothing more. Yes, FA's emoticons are a bit limited, and, dare I say, BLAND, but it would've been MUCH BETTER to have gone through the proper channels to add/change emoticon images. And I...
