That said, here are some guidelines for effective posting:Just a fun/random topic for WIP/pimpin screenshots of whatever you are working, whether it be a small a reskin, or as big as an all new model, this way we don't always have to open a new thread.
Post Only Your Own Work.
This thread is for artists to show off their WIP stuff and get helpful and useful comments and critiques. If you have someone else's files (and there is no IP issue), chances are it's time for that author to make his own A&M: D thread for promotion, news, and / or general comments.
Where appropriate, the users of this thread often provide critiques. Artists can only benefit from honest and effective critiquing. Remember, these posts, even if they are gruff, are meant to help.
See rule §5) No Spam.
Please try and make your comment posts descriptive. Avoid comments like "LOL sweet" and "You suck". While they may be true, they offer little more than filler between actually meaningful posts. If you have an opinion on something, try to describe why.
No Addon Requests.
See rule §8) Post in the right forum.
This includes requests phrased in the form of "wil ther b an ACE version LOL?". Typically, addons that are posted in the WIP thread will have their own threads eventually. You can ask the author about future version plans at that time. Further, for random addon requests, include those in the form of "nice addon. will u also do addon x/y/z?", where addon x/y/z is your fan favourite military piece, belong in the addon request thread, not here.
This is not a thread for adverts for your mission, mod, or addon. Video adverts can be posted in the combat videography thread. Posters can be posted in the combat photography thread. You're more likely to reach the audience you're after in those threads anyways. If your media doesn't allow for effective commenting on the work in question, it is not an appropriate piece for this thread. For example: trailers, videos with dramatic cuts, and media with post processing aren't appropriate.
* * * Respect the IP of Others. * * *
See rule §20) Posting addon/mod other content without permission.
Never post shots of other peoples' work that you have altered without permission. Period.
Also, remember the rules about images:
§14) Remove image tags when quoting a post containing an image
If you quote a post that contains an image please remove the image tag so that the link is posted not the image, it helps keep the thread tidy and easier to read if the same image isn't being posted repeatedly, you need only delete one [ to stop the image from hotlinking.§15) Do not hotlink images over 100kb (102400 bytes) in size
Do not link images over 100kb using the IMG tags to display an image in your post. If you wish to post an image larger then 100 kb feel free to post the URL instead of hotlinking.
