Hey everyone!

It's been a few months since we had a special raffle. For the month of December, we are doing an Author special raffle!

You can get more details at: https://alphacoders.com/contest

and the scoring page is at: https://alphacoders.com/contest/author-score

In short: Add authors to existing content, or add authors to new content to have a chance to win a prize!

Let me know if you have questions!

I figured I would give an update on this!

9 months later, everything 1280x800 and smaller has been moved off Wallpaper Abyss.

We are now going to start on 1280x960 and smaller - that's over 18,000 wallpapers. At one image every 30 minutes... it's gonna take a while laugh

I have made more edits to make things more clear:

  • No nude photography, exposed genitalia, or completely uncovered breasts/butts.
  • No visible female nipples

I've also included more examples. I think it could be confusing whether an arm/leg covering things was still considered nude photography - that has been clarified.

Let me know if that helps

Hey Uploader__!

It can take a while for a moderator to get to individual images. It looks like the things you have submitted are live now. Please pay attention to the private messages you get when a moderator makes changes to your submissions.

If you have any more questions, just ask!

I think names are good for making something a bit more unique. With things like fractals, it's harder by nature because they are abstracted pieces. If naming them is taking up a bit of time, maybe focus on naming the ones that you really find exceptional. Good names might come easier to those.

The move of Photography Abyss content is now done.

Photography Abyss, as a separate entity, is no more. RIP.

theinvid,

Definitely feel free to PM me with any questions you have. I'm happy to go into more detail, and get to a point where things make sense.

By DavidWest 2 months ago ago

theinvid,

I agree with you that I should have been more positive and constructive, especially in my first PM to you. I apologize for starting off things on the wrong foot. There's a lot of rule enforcement that me and the moderator team have to do - and the goal is always to be pleasant while upholding the strict standards of Wallpaper Abyss. I didn't achieve that goal in regards to my interactions with you. I do wish you the best in all your endeavors!

Posted In: Tag Rules

After looking into things a little more, it looks like some tags 4+ years old are mis-attributed to different users. This is coming up since a lot of old Photography Abyss content is being moved, in a newest section, and moderators are fixing some bad tags.

If you know you never added a tag, you can safely just ignore the PM. It won't affect your account standing.

crystalwarrior,

I was responding to the account with the name, 'jerry' in it ealier. I don't presume to name people - I just use usernames laugh

At this point I am a bit confused about what exactly the current issue is. Perhaps you can further explain in. Feel free to PM me about it too.

Hey DeathX28,

Definitely don't resubmit the content as wallpapers - we consider it wasting moderator time.

You can ask me, or any other moderator about specific content. If you'r referring to the latest moves - they are considered not family friendly. It makes more sense if you look at our family friendly rules: https://communities.alphacoders.com/topics/view/6771

Photography Abyss is being moved oldest first - so anything from it will remain in the same order.

All the photos are being added to Image Abyss, so they are 'new' on Image Abyss, and will appear as newer than things submitted to Image Abyss before the move.

Generally I agree that names instead of IDs are nice, but...

From our end, numbers are way easier than anything that involves text. So much easier.

The easiest way to present a text name to a user for us would be when they download an image to their computer, and just give the file a name via the actual name, or the sub category. Even something as simple as that would actually require a bit of changes, as the download script doesn't actually know what category/sub-category/name/tags the content has.

So it's a good idea KEJI! But probably something we won't implement for the time being.

On the topic of renaming things. If you are in Windows 10 you can:

1. Highlight all the images
2. Right Click -> Rename
3. Enter your new name (maybe the sub category the content is from)
4. All images will be renamed to something like dragon-ball-z (1), dragon-ball-z (2)

I'm sure there are other ways of going about it via command line and such too smiley
