2010-05-15 [Flisky]: Well, the pROn depends on the wiki. And if it's original art work.
But of course not stolen art.
2010-05-15 [*Phoenix*]: I'm not getting heated at all....(It's hard to tell with type, so just trust me on this.)
Moding afterwards would stink though. Just think, what if you uploaded a picture and had comments on it, and they go and delete it after people have already seen/commented on it. That would suck.
Yes, the quesues suck, but that's their way of doing it. They don't want to be just another online gallery:
Elfwood is a huge home to Fantasy/Sci-Fi art and literature. In respond to feedback from artists and viewers, Elfwood has expanded its site to cover a full range of Art, Fiction and How-To Guides. It is tightly controlled to stay within the SciFi/Fantasy theme, as art or stories depicting other motifs are not accepted. We host a wide range of original artwork to behold and inspire, and exciting tales to tantalize the imagination.
They WANT to keep it controlled. Like I said if you don't like it, just leave...
When you become a member you must agree to their terms and conditions (http://www.elf
Membership is available to both visitors and artists and writers who create material that is suitable within the Elfwood guidelines
It may seem like I'm being "heated," but I'm not. I like Elfwood because it was the first place I ever published my art and I have a great fondness for it. I don't like to see people bashing it. If you don't like it, there's no need for you to be there....
2010-05-15 [*Phoenix*]: Well, um...thank you?
2010-05-15 [Chel.]: PORN. If you're going to say it, say it. Not this "pROn" crap.
2010-05-15 [Flisky]: Fine. PORN! (Though at home we call it pron...*shrugs
2010-05-15 [Chel.]: :]
2010-05-15 [wicked fae mage]: Sorry, I like secret codes
2010-05-16 [Hendercrazy]: The thing I particularly like about the current Elfwood is that it's much more user friendly and easy to navigate/find stuff than any other fantasy art site I've been to. Even more cool is that fans can create a profile of their own, have the ability to favorite artists, writers and even specific works. I think it'll be enjoyable to getting back to some regularity there again. :)
2010-05-16 [Adaman]: Is there a better way to organize these wikis? My elftown name would place me at the beginning of the list with Art of Adaman. I don't like the feeling of bypassing all these pages and placing mine at top, only because of alphabetic coincidence.
2010-05-16 [Yncke]: Everyone has the possibility of choosing a name beginning with the letter A, if you chose something from the end of the alphabet, you know you'll be at the end with alphabetical orders. ;) I wouldn't worry about it if I were you, [Adaman]. You've got great art, just add the link!
2010-05-16 [Hendercrazy]: [Adaman]: Yeah, I wouldn't worry about it. Just the fact that we have this wiki to find and follow art wikis and updates here on ET easier is really the main point. :D Your username just happens to start with an A. :P Originally, I was going to separate everything by various categories and only go by alphabetical wiki name... but ultimately decided that going with the username would be the most fair. ;)
2010-05-16 [Veltzeh]: We could do usernumbers and then I would be on top! X) Either way, no matter how the page is organised, some people will always be on the top and some on the bottom. Of course it's possible to alternate the order, for example always moving a list of one letter to the bottom from the top, but does anyone want to do that regularly?
2010-05-16 [Hendercrazy]: Yeah, a rolling index would be a lot of work. O_O :P
2010-05-16 [Hendercrazy]: Added a "Regular Username Changers" section to the index. This will be for anyone who changes their username with any frequency. Only one person has changed their username since putting up their wiki... so it really hasn't been an issue. However, you now have a place to go if you're one of those people. :D
2010-05-16 [Kyrinn]: I need to finish my public art wiki to put here.. O_O
2010-05-18 [Serwa]: Heated or not, it's a pointless discussion.
No need to explain what elfwood is, I've probably been on there a while longer than you.
Since the issue is not keepin me awake at night, I see no need to leave the site altogether.
Elfwood is what it is, but when asked what I find of it, then there's room for improvement is all I'm saying.
Nowhere have I been bashing on your precious elfwood. So no need to protect it. It's perfectly safe. ;) lol
2010-05-18 [*Phoenix*]: ..Agreed.....
2010-05-18 [Kyrinn]: Ill be keeping my Elfwood, and probably adding to it in the near future. :) At least I finally got my public art wiki set up enough to be seen.
2010-05-18 [Hendercrazy]: As far as Elfwood and Elftown goes... I just want to get back to creating fantasy and sci-fi works. That's what I truly enjoy most. :) Be artistically active again, do my part to try to help make both places fun and motivating and interact while I continue to grow as an artist. That's really been the roots reason of why I ever got online in the first place. Granted, this time around I'll also be focusing a bit on selling some prints... but that'll be mostly to help pay for art supplies and donate a bit back into these communities.
