WE WILL NOT TAKE THE TIME TO GIVE FULL REFUNDS TO PEOPLE ARE WHO TAKE A RISK BREAKING RULES AND TRYING TO GET AWAY WITH IT! UPLOAD AT YOUR OWN RISK. ONCE YOU UPLOAD AN IMAGE WE ASSUME YOU HAVE READ THIS BLOG AND UNDERSTAND THE RULES

========================================
Uploading Guidelines UPDATED for new uploading process 06/22/2011
========================================

!!!!ALWAYS CHECK OFF SET TRANSPARENCY IF YOU DID NOT SET IT YOURSELF!!!!

!!!!THE WEBSITE DOES NOT SET GIF TRANSPARENCY SO DO THOSE YOURSELF!!!!!

1. DO NOT USE SOLID WHITE OR BLACK! it will make your file transparent.

2. Keep everything appropriate. Meaning no profanity, nothing drug related, nothing sexual, nothing racist, nothing sexist, or in game Graal sprites. If we find that it is not original, we reserve the right to refund half or all your gralats as a penalty.

3. DO NOT MAKE THINGS THAT ARE COPYRIGHTED, TRADE MARKED, REGISTERED, PATENTED OR ANY OTHER SORT OF COMBINATION. Draw everything yourself. Do not use Google'd images, do not use game sprites, do not use predefined textures, or anything like that. Such as things you would find in a specific anime, internet memes, video game, movies or toys. If we find that it is not original, we reserve the right to refund half or all your gralats as a penalty.

4. Do not name your files after existing files. Or do not upload files under the same name (such as a sword and shield under the exact same name). If you want to update a shield, have us delete the original one and upload the new one under a different name. Do not use any symbols in file names except - and _. And keep file names appropriate. Please limit your file names to 24 characters (not including the .png).

5. The uploaders are NOT in charge of uploading the following: Hats and furniture. We have a graphics team to work on that separately.

6. We do not convert images into shields for you or draw shields for you. You draw everything yourself. We don't do touch ups either. Also, everything is uploaded in order. Do not ask us to upload something before someone else, because they may have been waiting a long time!

7. Please use the templates we provide! Adding color to one side of the template does not actually change it. Also do not keep text or extra space outside the templates. Templates can be found at tinyurl.com/graaluploading

8. Constant breaking of uploading rules will lead to banning

Transparency Problems:
• Some of the colors on your file have become transparent.
• You did not click set transparency and your background is still there
• You did not use a full solid background and only part of the background was removed
• You used a gif file and did not remove the background yourself

Inappropriate:
• Something not suitable for the game that was listed above

Wrong Offset:
• Something is out of place

Incorrect Dimensions:
• You submitted something that was not used on one of out templates and is all over the place

Too Big:
• You overused the space on the shield

Not a Body:
• Something that cannot connect to a head and does not look like a body ( circles, shapes, blobs, etc )
• Does not have at least two legs it can walk on or two hands ( legs, genies, ghost, etc are ok)

Do not resubmit this:
• Files that have been declined various times for a number of reasons that break rules

  5. Very useful. However, many heads with masks, old/current hats are still uploaded. Why does this happen? I'm sure you can't upload a graphic by accident?

    ReplyDelete
  6. What'd I do if this appears when a trying to upload a head: Invalid file extension: .zip. Try saving the file using a different program!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I published a head once and payed for it now i want to publish another but it says that admins had reviewed it and are going to send it. Result i wake up the next day. No head I realise admins are really busy but i upload alot can't you hire people like me to help out?

  8. @Tutti Fruiteh: it may be that you have the body template selected, check your settings when you upload again. if it says you've checked the head, try checking the body instead.

    @DemonKnave: you may have JavaScript off. check your browser settings and retry.

    @up-loaders: I've had two heads taken from me that had hoods, but received no money back. I also had a body taken from me, that too gave me no money back; it has broken no rules...
    I'm tempted to point fingers because a player by the name of Demon Executioner has a (poorly) edited version of my body that he uploaded without my permission. He is in the guild Haus of Magic, which has several admins in it...

    ReplyDelete
  12. ugh! i worked out how to make it a gif file but NOW it tells me it has to be 32 by 560 pixels

  13. ive gotten the do not resubmit this response when i submitted something i just made for the first time. it also seems like certain rules arent on here, or maybe some of the things ive been told by a uploader werent true, like not being able to have a graphic based on current graal files, technically that would mean all edits/uploads based on existing heads or graal beings (zorbi etc) would be against the rules.

    id suggest something allowing us to check the status of any current files sent to be uploaded to prevent people thinking it didnt go through and resubmitting a upload.

    ReplyDelete
  14. scratch that, i found the part about in game sprites, but still i dont agree with such a rule with all the technicallities and such.

  16. There are several advantages of using mobile phones for business purposes. Utilizing Business Mobiles will allow all company personnel to remain in contact with each other at all times, whether in or out of the office. Phones connect the various members of a business on all levels, allowing them to always be focused, reachable, organized, and up-to-date on business operations. The advantages of using mobile phones in business can be summarized by their enabling of constant accessibility, portable and convenient internet connection, and organization capabilities.
