2006-04-18 [Moosey]: what if it's for/from a wiki?

2006-04-18 [Zab]: If it's on a wiki, you can have pretty much which image you want, unless it's copyrighted and it's a wiki people can visit. If you have permission from the artist to use it, just write that under the image, and maybe a note that others can't use it. But I'll let someone who knows the specific rules better than me answer that :)

2006-04-18 [Moosey]: thanks

2006-04-27 [Akayume]: where are the rules for your description? I want to check for things I might put on (poems, quotes, ect.)

2006-04-27 [Sunrose]: Uploading Art Rules. There are no set rules for texts on houses, but preferred would be if you did not copy whole texts such as lyrics, you can easily link to those :)

2006-04-27 [Akayume]: I see.

2006-05-02 [Sweet Innocence 666]: Alright well I was new on here and didnt know about the no chainletter rule it was sent to me by a friend well now ive been reported to the guards for it n this is the first ive ever read or heard bout that rule or even reported

2006-07-01 [EmeraldGrizzly]: I looked, I can't find anyhting 'bout it so... can you put a poll in your description?

2006-07-01 [iippo]: You can put a link to the poll in your description, yes. 

2006-07-03 [Zab]: I think he/she meant a poll, like a wikipoll, in the description..I don't know if it works or if it agrees with the rules:P

2006-07-05 [kittykittykitty]: It's not possible to put a poll in your description (I just tried :P )

2006-07-06 [Zab]: Then we have the answer on that, thanks for finding out :P

2006-07-06 [iippo]: So if something is impossible to do, then it is also impossible for it to be against the rules :P

2007-01-06 [weirdscarydyke]: Can I get into trouble for having a picture of my beloved bong on my profile?

2007-01-07 [Teufelsweib]: as long as it's not disturbing, and it's your bong and you made the picture (not a picture from google), it's ok :)

2007-01-11 [Aldalome]: hello, I have a question about the uar.
Is it allowed to have logos form lets say, brands and bands in your house?
And the 2 example pictures that were made for the mainstreet image competition, is it allowed to post them into your house?
and someone put an oficial badge ( hedda's badge into their drawing slot) should I report that?

2007-01-11 [Teufelsweib]: your first question, no logos and brands aren't allowed :) all art that isn't made by you isn't allowed, unless you got permission from the artist.
same for your second question, only if you ask their permission. (and give a note that they gave you permission, so they get the credit)
and yes, you should report that :)

2007-01-11 [Aldalome]: Thank you I've been watching these houses since yesterday. I'll report them right away.

2007-01-11 [Teufelsweib]: thank you for reporting too :)

2007-01-17 [Aldalome]: Hello, I have a question about reporting people (again)
I don't know if I can report these two [doc snov]The picture in his photoslot already disturbs me, but its the picture in the drawingslot that really caught my eye. As you van see its signed Max Hallberg. Max Hallberg exists, he is an elfwood artist. http://elfwood.lysator.liu.se/art/h/a/hallberg/hallberg.html
On this persons profile it isn't even shown that he is an elfwood artist. The world possition is also wrong.

next one up is [Just An Awesome Guy] the picture in his drawingslot is copyrigted, but i have trouble finding it on the net.

I know this wiki isn't the place to write semi repots, but I'm just not really sure about these two.

2007-01-17 [Zab]: I think you should report at least the first one, since you have good reasons to believe it's not his and can link to the real artist. :)
I thgink you can report the second one too, if you believe he hadn't made the image. :)
(Not a guard, but I think I'm right x)
