Registration Agreement

General Site Rules and User Agreement.

You must read and agree to these terms in order to register.

The agreement checkbox is at the bottom of this page.

  • In Short:

    • Do not spam, or register with intent to spam.
    • Respect creators' copyrights.
    • Please do not post traced artwork. Tracing, while it can be a useful tool when learning to draw, is not accepted at this site. If something is blatantly copied from Elfquest or any other type of media it will be deleted from the gallery. The only exception to this rule is the use of Wendy’s “Model Sheets” but please make sure you mention their use in either the title or the description of your upload.
    • Tag mature contents properly.
    • Do not post non-Elfquest art or stories in the gallery. If you wish to share art or stories not related to ElfQuest, you can start a thread in the appropriate section of the forum (i.e. The Other Art Gallery).
    • Familiarize yourself with the current sig, avatar, image size, and linking rules. These rules may change from time to time, so check the rules board occasionally.
    • These rules work in conjunction with the user agreement at the bottom of this page, not in its stead. You must read to and agree to these rules and the user agreement.

  • Forum Topics That Are Welcome:

    • Anything not listed below.

  • Forum Topics That Are Not Welcome:

    • Threads dedicated to flaming an individual or their efforts.
    • Repeating the same thing over and over and over and over and over and..... in one thread.
    • Commercial solicitations and advertisements. If you're unsure, contact the admins.

  • Derailed Forum Conversations:

    • If a topic gets de-railed from its original scope the original poster can request via PMs that we split the off-topic part into a separate thread. Doing this will help those posters who would like their thread to stay on topic, while allowing threads to evolve in the organic manner they sometimes do provided the original poster doesn't mind.
    • We may, at our discretion, split topics if we think that these boards would benefit from the discussion that's off-subject in the original thread.

  • Briefly About Copyright:

    • Please keep copyright-infringing material away from this site. Thank you.
    • If you use someone's photograph as a background, get direct permission from the original author and give them credit. Content from "free clip-art sites" is not sufficient: more often than not images in those galleries were taken without asking the artist. Many times I have found the artwork of friends on such sites and they had no idea their artwork had been made "free" to the public. Just because a third party says a picture is free, doesn't mean it is. You need the permission of the actual owner, whether it be by contacting them, or permission being given on their site.
    • We know this isn't something that most people are accustomed to, but this site is intended to be a bastion of respect for others' original creations, and unfortunately this means a little inconvenience for those who do mixed media art.
    • Special rules for dolls: Credit (with links) the base maker or originating doll machine. If you have not done any post-work to a doll that you created in a doll-maker (example: adjusting clothing, adding jewelry, etc), then please do not upload it here. Such dolls are so quick and easy to make that if we allowed their upload, they would push art that takes hours (even days) to make off the front page. You are welcome to share these in the forums, of course.

  • Briefly About Mature Content:

    • Mature content must be sorted into mature albums. Please see and heed the guidelines here for the creation of a mature arts folder: Mature Art Access and Albums

  • User Agreement:

    • You agree to adhere to the above rules. Major changes to this agreement will be communicated via an email to the address you used to register on this forum, so be sure to register with an email you check periodically.
    • These are privately owned boards. If there are disputes or requests we will hear the arguments, but in the end our word is the law in this corner of the Internet. We heavily advocate free speech, but remember that free speech only applies because of the goodness of our hearts -- it is not required by an actual law in a private forum like this or others like it.
    • You agree, through your use of this forum, that you will not post any material which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, hateful, harassing, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise in violation of any International or United States Federal law.
    • By posting a picture or a story, either in the gallery or the forum, you assert that you are the copyright-holder for that piece, or are acting as an authorized agent for the copyright-holder. You also grant us a temporary, revokable license to show that material on these forums. You can revoke the license at any time by removing the material from your post or the gallery. You also agree generally not to post any copyrighted material unless you own the copyright, or have written consent from the owner of the copyrighted material, or in good faith believe that posting the material falls under Fair Use.
    • Spam, flooding, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and wanton solicitations are forbidden on this forum.
    • Note that it is impossible for the staff or the owners of this forum to confirm the validity of posts. Please remember that we do not actively monitor the posted messages, and as such, are not responsible for the content contained within. We do not warrant the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information presented. The posted messages express the views of the author, and not necessarily the views of this forum, its staff, its subsidiaries, or this forum's owner.
    • Anyone who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to notify an administrator or moderator of this forum immediately. The staff and the owner of this forum reserve the right to remove objectionable content, within a reasonable time frame, if they determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, so please realize that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately. This policy applies to member profile information as well.
    • You remain solely responsible for the content of your posted messages. Furthermore, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless the owners of this forum, any related websites to this forum, its staff, and its subsidiaries. The owners of this forum also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or any other related information collected on this service) in the event of a formal complaint or legal action arising from any situation caused by your use of this forum.
    • You have the ability, as you register, to choose your username. We advise that you keep the name appropriate. With this user account you are about to register, you agree to never give your password out to another person except an administrator, for your protection and for validity reasons. You also agree to NEVER use another person's account for any reason.  We also HIGHLY recommend you use a complex and unique password for your account, to prevent account theft.
    • After you register and login to this forum, you will be able to fill out a detailed profile. It is your responsibility to present clean and accurate information. Any information the forum owner or staff determines to be inaccurate or vulgar in nature will be removed, with or without prior notice. Appropriate sanctions may be applicable.
    • Please note that with each post, your IP address is recorded, in the event that you need to be banned from this forum or your ISP contacted. This will only happen in the event of a major violation of this agreement.
    • Also note that the software places a cookie, a text file containing bits of information (such as your username and password), in your browser's cache. This is ONLY used to keep you logged in/out. The software does not collect or send any other form of information to your computer.
