I've got a question. For the banners, do we use the sprites in the Pokemon's threads or can we use any image of the Pokemon?

I'm pretty sure that it's not gonna be required to use sprites for the banners,
it will probably be allowed to use any image of the pokemon you want..
Anyway the guidelines aren't done, so it's to soon to tell tho.

I have a question about linking fanfiction chapters.

I'm not sure how to link to a chapter that's long, since I can't simply link to a single post if the chapter takes up more than one. Do I just link to the page of the thread that chapter is on (I'd like it to be able to go straight to the first post, though I'm not sure how to do this) or what?

I'd assume you'd just link all the posts the chapter was on. Perhaps have (Part 1) (Part 2) and so on beside them?

You can have it shortcut to the first post too if you wanted, I do it like this:

Click the number on the post you want it to shortcut to



Then click the link that returns you to the original thread



And copy the URL from here. It will be a shortcut to the starting post you chose.

How would someone become an Expert, like for Sprite Art?

Knowing the basic rules of spriting, including shading and the manipulation of the outline, is a good quality to have. Of course, it's recommended that you have experience in most areas of spriting (fusions, scratches, recolours, eggs etc.). As with all the other Expert types, you need to be able to point out flaws in a sprite and show people how to correct them.

I'd say post some of your best sprites up and let others judge if you have the potential. I do believe that 2 Experts in the spriting section is not enough, and I think you may be able to help out that problem.

-----------------

Anyway, onto the main reason why I'm posting here. There's a problem with the Creative Dex that I've discussed with Paperfairy, and we thought it'd be best to let others know and give their opinion. The problem isn't particularly big, but if not solved criticism can become tedious for Experts.

Basically, we can never know for sure that a post contains a submission of one's own Expert type. This isn't a big deal whilst just Staff are posting submissions, but when the doors finally open I expect there to be a decent amount of posts. Due to this, checking each and every thread for submissions of our Expert type can become tedious, especially with the amount of Pokemon we have now.

As it stands right now, two solutions have been brought up:
  • 1) Experts are emailed topics that have been posted in daily. Experts can then just look through these threads. Whilst this does cut down on the amount of searching one does through threads, it doesn't eliminate the problem completely, especially if there are lots of posts in a day.
  • 2) This board is given subforums, organised by submission type. So we'd have a subforum for Sprites, a subforum for Graphics, a subforum for Fan-Fiction etc. Not only does this make the forum look more organised, it also makes it easier on the Experts, with them only having to check their respective subforum for new posts. The problem with this is the amount of threads that'd need to be created/copied for this to work. Apparently this was the original idea, but everybody thought a single board would be smarter. If this still seems the case, I guess we could keep it as is.

TL;DR: Checking submissions is tedious, should the forum be split into seperate categories based on submission type?

Hm I can see your point but I honestly don't thnik it's going to be a huge problem. I can't imagine that we're going to get so many submissions that it will be hard to keep up with. My suggestion would just be to check all the new posts (the threads should be bolded) whenever you sign in and see if there's anything you need to handle. Turning on the email notification thing should be easy, but I'm not sure if you guys would prefer being emailed about every posts rather than just checking them when you sign in. But that is an option =]

As for splitting into sections, that would work but I don't think we're going to get that many submissions of a single type that would make it worth it. I mean like we might get a total of 4 sprites of Bulbasaur over the whole life of the Creative Dex. And many Pokemon won't have any.

Another thought: Should we edit the forms so that people include the image they're submitting in their post? Then it may be easier for experts to scan through. (obviously not for fanfiction but yeah xD)

So it would be like this instead:

That shortcuts to the direct post though, not the whole chapter.

Agree. And I think that might be better actually, yeah. I doubt there would be that many giant drawings or wallpapers to be a big deal.
