You have to be a member to post or draw in the Oekaki. All you have to do is click on the “Register” link on the top of the Oekaki pages, fill in the fields, and then confirm your email address. If you are already a member and can’t post anymore, then the most likely reason is that you have broken one of the rules. To find out for sure, contact either Chihiro923 or Rio.
Check your Bulk or Spam Folder. It may have been sent to there. If it’s not there, then either a) you typed in your email wrong, b) you have an email blocker or firewall, or c) you haven’t waited long enough for the email to get to you. If you are positively sure you fall in none of the above, then try signing up again or contact me so I can activate the account.
To use the Oekaki, you need to have Java installed. If you already have it, then make sure you have it enabled under your browser options, usually under Tools > (Internet) Options. Otherwise, a) make sure you have the latest browser version, b) wait for it to load if you have a slow connection, or c) in some instances, a firewall may be the factor so check your settings. If you still have a problem, I’m sorry to say it, but if it doesn’t show up – it doesn’t show up.
Each Oekaki Room has a certain amount of space allotted to it. As each member posts a new image, an older image will be automatically deleted to make room for the newer artwork. If you want to save your artwork, make sure you do so asap. Otherwise, we cannot do anything to recover lost artwork.
Give chihior923 or Rio the heads up and they’ll take care of it. You can find them in the Oekaki and in the forum.
