Re: Arsty Sites For Artsy People

theblackdragon

@Dragoon: you'd be surprised what i believe. that said, there's no arguing with a dA moderator if they personally believe something actually has artistic merit, so if your tastes and theirs don't gel, just turn off Mature submissions in your settings (at that point, any nude that makes it through the filter is reportable).

if we could get off the topic of pornography now, it would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance, guys :3

Re: My dog chewed in half my 3ds charger. Will this new charger work?

theblackdragon

I never brought the 3DS charger out of the box because we already had two DSi chargers in circulation in our house — I used DSi chargers with mine all the time. a DSi charger will work just fine with your 3DS.

Re: Arsty Sites For Artsy People

theblackdragon

Actually, dA has rules against pornography, so if you see something like that, TokyoRed, try reporting it. However, they also do allow artistic nudes, so if it's got artistic value of some sort, they'll usually let it stand.

that said, lol, are we talking about the same SheezyArt? you can find plenty of 'mature' art there, same as dA. you can set your settings on both sites to not automatically load mature artworks if they bother you so much (iirc in the case of SA, but i know for a fact you can block them on dA if you don't want to see them).

Re: Arsty Sites For Artsy People

theblackdragon

(a) sheezyart was a MySpace wannabe furry-based 'answer' to dA that went to crap years ago — all the furs fled to furaffinity once that hit (though FA is a few other brands of BS now). idk what's up with SA at the moment, but it probably pales in comparison to both dA and FA by now.
(b) conceptart.org is only good if you are absolutely, positively serious about pursuing a career in art. don't bother them otherwise.
(c) elfwood has been around almost since the dawn of images being posted to the internet. that said, last i knew, elfwood proper was for fantasy images only and had a strict moderation team reviewing each submission to the site — they did have a sci-fi side to mirror the fantasy part of things, but for works of art that didn't fall under either category, they wouldn't let you post them. a quick glance at the main site now seems to say that nothing's changed.

Honestly, WaltzElf is right — if you don't want to post it to dA, just make your own site and gallery and post your work there. in terms of a thriving community, though, there's not much else in the way of alternatives to dA that are as open and accepting of users from all walks of life, young and old, experienced and not.

If we could just 'rec' comments I'd be happy. It's such a pain to have to wade through loads of comments, to find a good informative comments. I'm sure this would benefit the site, comments are basically free content for the website anyway, so why not allow us to highlight the best ones for you?

no offense, but who are you (or anybody else, for that matter) to choose the 'best' comments for me to read? you're not me, lol. i hate having to go through and expand comments on other sites because they're hidden due to low ratings. when i visit a comment thread on a website i want to read everything that everyone has to say, good, bad, silly, or serious, not just things that other people have chosen as 'good' or 'best'. :3

personal tastes aside, though, rated comments don't make an inviting scenario for newbies to enter into. James is right, we want everyone to have equal voice here — and of course if people abuse our desire for fairness and start trolling, we will ban them and that'll be the end of it. :3

@bezerker99 Please, lets not make america look even more ignorant to other nations than it already is.

I disagree — what he's stating is probably what an average joe would say about the question if you were to pull in people off the street for opinion. there are other sports that people here in the US like more than soccer... It doesn't make the average joe 'ignorant', it just means their tastes lie elsewhere.

Re: Does advanced setup let you play wifi games on the 3DS?

theblackdragon

the 3DS has no problems playing 3DS games online — what you're thinking of is having a DSi or 3DS, setting up a secured internet connection (instead of a WEP connection, like DS games require), and then attempting to play a DS title via WFC. That's not the case when playing a 3DS game, though, as it can utilize any connection the 3DS can access for WFC play (the DS could only access a WEP connection, thus the game WFC problem on DSi and 3DS). :3

Either way, glad to see you've come to a decision. :3

@Tasuki: it's in the Options menu iirc, the same option that allowed you to transfer games from the DSi to the 3DS has an option to transfer games from a 3DS, but when you tap it it says that functionality will come with a later update.
