Some information about ASCII-art has been gathered here. ASCII art is one or more images consisting of the characters and symbols on your keyboard/computer. If you copy ASCII art and put it into your Elftown description, you're breaking the Uploading Art Rules.


Not only is Joan Stark so well-known for her ASCII stuff, she's also now in the wikipedia ;) I couldn't get to her homepage because it has exceeded its bandwidth, but here's her Wikipedia entry that also includes a ton of links for her:

And while there, I also found this page that has a ton of links to some ASCII galleries at the bottom:

Reporting Copied ASCII Art


Write a guard-report by pressing <img:http://ew2.lysator.liu.se/ET/knapp/sendreportoguards1.gif> in the member's house and write something like "Copied ASCII art in house presentation." Please do not copy the entire text of the ASCII art into your report.

2006-07-26 [Nocternity S.]: well if you dont like the rules then, why are you here?

2006-08-05 [Lestat5721]: because rules are made to be followed. but only when it is convinient.

2006-08-05 [All_Most PUNK]: Convinient for who?

2006-08-09 [RebellionMarch]: ok ive made a peice of acii art.. i did it myself its on my and my girlfreinds house.. on both houses i have put a message very vlearly stating its my own original acii art... why have the guards still deleted it? i did do it myself

2006-08-09 [Nocternity S.]: maybe because 99.9% of them are stolen. But you still have it so dont worry

2006-08-10 [Ocean Soul]: [RebellionMarch] - the ASCII image is allowed in your own house, because you made it yourself. But it's not allowed in anybody else's house.

2006-08-11 [Lestat5721]: if you give someone else permission to use it, why can't they use it? It's not violating copywrite laws.

2006-08-12 [Oodlelloodle]: Copied ASCII art is prohibited on Elftown because it violates the basic rule that all art on your house must be made by or for you. Besides it's very annoying to see the same things on every house. Elftown is about creativity. If you don't like that aspect you can join www.elfpack.com or any other web-community.

2006-08-12 [Nocternity S.]: i could not have said it better myself.

2006-08-22 [Titanium Tiger]: did you mean the wiki hug at random thing??? on my page is that whtat was suposedly copied?

2006-08-22 [stuffAEAmade]: No, the 'Guys are like stars' thing.

2006-08-22 [Nocternity S.]: a lot of people has those... O.O!

2006-08-26 [Elysian]: "Besides it's very annoying to see the same things on every house. Elftown is about creativity"

If we use this argument, then we have to also delete all of those percentage things (98% of blah blah blah...repost this if you're the 2%...), and any re-posted "chain email" story (A girl and a guy were riding on a motorcycle...blahblahblah).

2006-08-26 [Nocternity S.]: yeah... they should do that too, i agree!

2006-08-29 [Oodlelloodle]: It's not a rule. It's a guideline. Right now we don't have a rule for copied text.

2007-07-06 [playgirl_10]: grrrr thats fuckin stupid i should be able to put what the fuck i want on my fucking page

2007-07-06 [Linderel]: It's a free community with no ads. It's only to be expected there are some rules.

2007-07-07 [Hedda]: Eh, no. We don't have rules because we have a free community. The rules are there because the Elftowners want them there. And we're not that interested in seeing "fucking pages".

2007-07-07 [Linderel]: I didn't say that the rules are there because it's a free community; I only said it's to be expected in one. ;3

2007-07-21 [Lightning Cowgirl]: this is stupid...i cant even use an image to show my support for someine who has cancer, this blows!

2007-07-21 [Savien]: So make an image. It's more original.
