Ok, the new gallery is finished. Not everything from the old gallery has been moved over yet. I'm going to work on that, but I think I've moved enough over that I can go ahead an open it now.

Benefits Over the Old Gallery

1. Members can now directly upload their own fanart. They no longer have to go through the staff at the forum.
2. Members can comment on images using their regular accounts. Comments will also no longer be flooded by spam bots due to the fact you need an account to comment. We encourage members to comment on images in the gallery. These comments will up your post count.
3. The gallery is now much better integrated with the website and uses the regular forum skins and navigation.

Right now, the gallery includes sections for Fanart and Screenshots.

Screenshots

The screenshots up include all the shots from the previous gallery. I will now be taking screenshot submissions again. Requirements for screenshot submissions:

1. They should be high quality in a relatively large size height and width wise.
2. Screenshots for each episode should be range from 80-400 shots per episode.
3. A focus should be placed on catching fanservicey, femslashy, etc. type shots that would not have made it onto the other more kiddy TS websites.

Screenshots cannot be uploaded directly to the gallery by regular members like fanart. If you wish to submit screenshots for episodes, put them in a zip files and send them to me.

Fanart

Right now the fanart gallery has 4 sections. One is for fanart contest winners.

Another is for guest TS fanart. This section is for non-members who have allowed me to publish their art here. It is also for past members who once submitted their art for the site but are no longer members.

There are also two galleries members can directly upload to. These is one for Totally Spies fanart and one for off-topic fanart (anything not having to do with TS).

How to Upload Art to the Members' Totally Spies and Member's Off-Topic Fanart Sections

Uploading art is rather simple. Just do the following:

1. Sign up with a member account.
2. Enter one of the Members' sections in the gallery.
3. Press the button labeled "Start a New Album."
4. Create an album including your user name in the title.
5. Press the button labeled "New Image."
6. Add your images.

Rules for Art in the Members' Totally Spies and Member's Off-Topic Fanart Sections

1. The art you submit must be your own artwork. You can not submit other people's work that you did not create yourself.
2. "Live-action" images are not allowed in the fanart sections of the gallery. Your pieces must be artwork you created with a pencil, paintbrush, mouse, etc.
3. Explicit nudity is not allowed in the gallery. This includes exposed nipples and private parts. Fanservicey or gratuitous type images will be allowed as long as they stay inside these parameters. Sex should also be kept toned down to the point where it is non-explicit and non-pornographic. I may make exceptions for the rules regarding nudity based on the artistic quality of the image minus the element of gratuitousness that makes such images pornographic. However, you have to send them to me for review first before try to upload them to the gallery. Uploading them to the gallery yourself will result in administrative action being taken against you.
4. Overly gross images or images just intended to shock are not allowed. Think of the things you would see at "Something Awful."
5. Images in really bad taste. This will be judged by me personally. Things in bad taste I would consider to be stuff like guro or expansion pics where the characters get incredibly fat. Overly fetishistic pics with little artistic merit will also fall under this category. However, this is a yuri and yaoi friendly site so those kinds of images will almost always be welcome here. Pics that are just sexy, fanservicey, or contain light bondage or S&M content will also usually be allowed. In general, I'm only referring to the really weird stuff out there that targets obscure fetishes that are overly gross and not-aesthetically pleasing to most other people.

Members, Please Re-Upload Your Artwork

I didn't re-upload everyone's artwork, because I want the members who are currently signed up to do that themselves in the members section. Please try to do so. If you no longer have your images from the old gallery, I can retrieve them for you. Don't worry.

Moderation

I also want to add that all mods can moderate the members' fanart sections. Please help me keep an eye out for stuff that does not belong there. If you see something that only seems borderline questionable, you can alert me first before you take action. If you do delete images, always PM me to tell me what happened.

To View Images in Full Size

To view images in full size and at the highest resolution, you must click on the smaller version of an image that appears on the left of the image's page.

If anyone has any questions about anything regarding the new gallery please don't be afraid to ask.

Just want to note I thankfully caught something pretty early. The gallery software was resizing pics that were over 1400x1200 pixels. I went ahead and switched it to six times that limit, which would allow ungodly large images to be uploaded. I only think this effected 4 images by Nanako87 thankfully. I went back and reuploaded those pics, and they can now be seen in original size by clicking on the middle sized images.

Gonna bump this and ask all the fanartists to please reupload their work. You have to do this yourself now with the way it's set up. If you no longer have your old pics, I still have an archive of the old gallery and can retrieve them for you.
