So as a few people have already come forward with inquiries, there are a couple of things I would like to make sure get cleared up here about WolfPlay's image policy here in the forum. Mainly.
It is no different than it would be in the game.
What this means is that any images and links posted anywhere in the forum, such as in the roleplay section or in signatures, are being held to a specific standard. So any and all images posted must be as follows...
Images are hosted through an image hosting site. No Hotlinking!
This will apply to links as well. I know that we, as moderators, have spread the misconception in the past that posting just the link was alright. This is no longer the case and this will still be seen as a form of hotlinking.
All images must be credited! Please make sure the credits are either on the image or posted right after it.
As always credits need to be visible and obvious to us mods.
All images must be original work or stock.
DA would be the best source to search for stock images but may not be the only source. If you are ever unsure it is best to bring it to a member of the staff with questions before use.
Images of people are not allowed!
At all! "But what about for roleplay?" you might ask. Well you don't need pictures for the RP characters. You should be using their imaginations and describing them with words! Think of it as a chance to prove and improve your abilities. How much of a word picture can you create?
If you are struggling with this new crack down on the forums image policy it might be helpful to check out this topic:
This is the same topic that members are suggested to check out when seeking help on avatars as it goes a little more in depth with the requirements for in game avatars as well as what the requirements are here in the forum. This is something that we, the moderation team, have obviously been rather lax with in the past but will be cracking down on for the future. So we ask that you pay mind to the rules and try to help us out. We will be going through the Roleplay forums and begin removing any images and links that do not follow the above. Since that is a lot of topics however and posts to read, our efforts will be focused on recent posts while old topics will start getting pruned from the forum altogether.
Thank you for your patience and understanding with this recent change and crack down.
