    Default This current round.

    Uh, I think I might jump the shark in this round, but I want to include images into my article. Should they be at a specific height and width, and if so, at what dimensions? And am I limited to how many I can include? Considering that I hope this article would continue a new tradition of featuring weekly fanart, I'm planning to just feature five fanart at the moment. If this is going to be a permanent, I would hope to increase the number of fanart soon.

    And when I PM you the article, Freya, do you need it in html format or should I use the forum tags?

    I am just... that ace!

    Forum or html! Whichever works for you. More people should use WYSIWYG Editing! You can format everything in your post even attach and change the size of pictures and wrap text around said images and stuff without having to actually write out all the tags/codes. SEE! Just don't post large ones that break tables. If you attach pictures you can just double click them and set the size. Maybe even post them smaller and have a link to the bigger versions when clicked?

    Well, okay! I guess I'll have mine ready by tomorrow night, hopefully! I'll go work on answering the questions for the blog... and I'm going to use this thread for that if it's alright! >:3

    Do I look at the front site? Not very often I do this, but I do look at the front site every once in the while. I do notice that it's updated more regularly now than it has been in the past, but if there's one thing the front site is missing, it's fanart from the fans of Final Fantasy! We ought to exploit this and showcase the works of art from the fans! I hope to see art submissions from members of EoFF if they want to showcase any fanart of theirs, but we can also accept art from other places too, like DeviantArt and such. And if I were to become part of the staff, I do hope that I can implement this to become a more permanent feature on the front site! Should it have its own section? Perhaps not, but having a weekly article linking to artwork should be more than enough to satisfy myself and other art enthusiasts alike. This is what I want to see on the frontsite! Everything else is pretty much a-okay and fine with me!

    We mentioned briefly doing something with the old art section thing album place but it kind died in the water. When you get other people's fanart remember to ask permission first!

    I'm aware of that, and I will do so if the artists require their permission to have us show their work. Otherwise I'm going to avoid them and use work from artists that do not have this. They're likely to accept the attention from being linked to anyway, as I'm providing the sources for each art I want to showcase. I'm going to be starting off with just five for this so it shouldn't be a huge deal.

    And I would also like to see a way for members to submit their own artwork to be showcased in the near future! Maybe I can also take what's already in Relm's Studio, but there's hardly any new FF fanart in recent months from our own members.

    Once I move into my new apartment I plan on doing A LOT of artwork. I'm working on a big project using my art and writing so you might get some from me at least! Currently my only fanart is shirtless kaidan alenko I have a problem. But If you do start posting artwork I'll try to provide some pieces if you'd like!

    Well, I got around to submitting my task to Freya. I'm not going to expect much out of it, but if I'm going to join staff and have to contribute something for the frontsite, then I want to contribute by showcasing FF fanart!

    I have been a strong supporter of the idea that we should promote our FF fanart. I even started an EoFF Tumblr that has never been used. Maybe you are the man to make this happen. I hope so!

    You know, I think I'm going to eventually create a new email so I can have people email fan art to submit for showcasing if it's accepted as a front site feature.

    I think I recall BoB mentioning that they can still set up @eyesonff.com email addresses.

    Yeah honestly I've been wanting to do something like this for a while but haven't gotten around to it. I'm glad you're willing to take the initiative.

    I say Proto gets an Editor job and his role is to focus on fanart. We have Pike on social media already, so now we slowly grow the team. Not all our recruits will be as awesome as Proto though, but we can get there.

    YEAH RAISTLIN I SAID WE AGAIN. I'm still an Editor in spirit ;__;

    I'll give it some consideration if I do get an offer for the Editor position if not the Cid's Knight.

    That is great to hear, Proto. I know it seems like an "inferior" position, but the Editor team could turn into the super cool club with just the right additions: like you!
