(If you want to show it off you can save it and upload it to your art thread or The Let's Exercise thread) (http://www.mangatutorials.com/forum/showthread.php?1163-Let-s-exercise!)
File > Save Canvas as > PictureName.png or .psd

2. Do Not Erase notices will be honored for 1 DAY ONLY (24 hours). Anyone may erase it afterwards.

3. BRB notices will be honored for 1 HOUR. Anyone may erase it afterwords.

We are getting to a stage where people put a dne on every little thing they are drawing.

Guys keeping in mind a lot of people come in the Group Board though out the day and while you are sleeping, if you put do not erase on every single doodle you do and don't ever finish it in one go maybe you are better off saving it and finishing later outside of GB.

Not only is permanently taking up a space and labeling a DNE for everything you do inconsiderate to other users, it also means not all of us get a chance to draw.

Please be fair to other people waiting for a place to draw especially when it's very busy and limit your dne to more serious drawings. Group Board is for all of us to enjoy.

For things like practice sketches, doodles and sketches please try and finish them straight away or use a BRB instead of DNE.

If you are drawing something that requires Colour, background and/or fancy line art, those are the kinds of drawings that might require a do not erase label.

Im gonna go out and say that the GB needs a total security update. It was under my impression that the MANGA TUTORIALS GROUPBOARD is purely for the use of MANGA TUTORIAL MEMBERS.
Lately theres been randomers and trolls erasing work and generally causing havoc. I've said this for EVERY SINGLE GB thats ever been created but, we need MOD'S. People who are on the GB all the time or most of the time and are well known. Even a password would work! Just something, -anything- that'll make this situation a little bit easier for the rest of us who are members and have been members for years.

GunZet
07-19-2012, 10:26 PM
LEGIT.
A little situation happened last night where some random guest decided to target Linz, and only Linz, for a trolling spree. Whoever it was ended up erasing her work when we tried to drop the situation, and then proceeded to sign in with multiple accounts when we tried to duplicate-user kick the guest.
Seems that with the GB, people that have certain vendettas against certain users come back after a while. We've had this happen like once or twice before. All we got was hunches that the user's name was Daniel, or Tim.

Soooo, yea, we need mods, and better security. Maybe even passworded like the old days.
If we can get GB mods, throw some Linz and Toast up in that shite, son.

Then please can we do something about that. Its not fair to the MT users to have to deal with this crap.

toast
07-19-2012, 11:28 PM
I agree. at the moment we only have one mod, and I think it's obvious we at least need a few more, preferably people that are on like all the time. Seriously.

I'm going to change the URL to the GB. Please do NOT post the URL here or anywhere public. You will have to log in and then go to the GB page link above and go through that way. I am going to change it daily so I suggest you don't bookmark the GB page.

If the problem continues, at least with this, you can narrow it down to a member of the site. I will talk to Thor again in regards to this problem.

Don't erase something with "BBL" beside it unless you intend to use the space. Especially if it's been less than 24 hours. I don't like coming back to my 12-hour old drawing half erased and a bunch of empty space surrounding it on the board.

And if you did it just to spite me, get off my nuts. kthx

There really should be a password automatically emailed to a new person on the board for GB after a certain amount of time.

I feel the same. After you have something really awesome erased once, you kinda don't feel inclined to have it happen to you again. :/

Linz
11-11-2012, 06:39 PM
Didn't we have this problem before? Except the troll targeted me. Although by no means should this episode deter you from drawing on the GB. I know its frustrating - trust me. Don't let the troll win, you're just giving it what it wants. Save your art often and if you want to do a detailed piece, try and do it in one sitting if possible. Everyone should understand that leaving art on the GB is a huge risk, and by leaving it there you understand that risk. Another tip is to sign and date it, so people know how long its been there and if its okay by the rules to erase it.

Hope i've helped somehow :c

I liked when we used to wait a week or something to be able to enter to the GB, even so this is a shitty solution and many people could made an account, never post here and then get on the GB, it framed the amount of problems (except for the case of shadowofshadowofshadowofshadowofshadow).

Oh, cool. When will the password system be up?

11-12-2012, 05:42 PM
why don't we just have a password as opposed to a login system? its not hard for a troll to make an account

Joosh
11-12-2012, 05:50 PM
If we had used a password in the beginning none of this would have happened.

Maybe instead of a system the password could be spread through word of mouth.
At first It should only be given to those who frequent it (Cyp, Nwap, Linz, toast, Generally people who care) and have been members forever. Then if a noobie wants to use the GB we get to personally screen them before giving them it.

I don't know, this idea could probably have its flaws, but It's how it was on Old Old group-board.

There should also be more than one moderator.

Celestial-Fox
11-12-2012, 05:52 PM
Idk just an idea, I know it could probably have its flaws. But Its how it was on Old Old gb

"Old Old GB" = "Golden Age" talk.

Also, I interpreted Rio's "login" system to be like the "old old GB" password anyway—that is, a periodically changing password that isn't linked to our individual forum accounts.

Joosh
11-12-2012, 05:59 PM
Hold up, i'm not saying old GB was better.

I'm simply pointing out that that's the system we used for it, and it worked well. In the months that I got to use it I never saw or dealt with trolls like this.

guys is there any way we could have a rule about drawing too large?

arsalan draws women in suggestive poses and I wouldn't mind that if I could actually get to a point on the board where I couldn't see any of it. Due to a family rule, my computer is in the living area and I've got young children in the house. It takes forever for him to finish a drawing, so if he starts one that I can't avoid, I'm off the gb for a few days until its erased.

Sho
06-05-2013, 05:56 AM
I think at least one thing we could do is to suggest to draw anything NSFW as far to the bottom right as possible, seeing as when you start GB up it starts at the top left of the canvas. Then other users can notify someone who just logged in on GB of NSFW drawings, or the artist himself can put a little NSFW notice in the top left.

Not drawing too big is generally not a problem since people realise it's a shared canvas, but when no one is drawing and the whole canvas is empty someone might think 'Well no one's here so I can take up a lot of space.'

I think Rio should at least add some suggestions about NSFW drawings in the message you get when you log in, though I'm not sure everyone reads this message.

Rio
06-05-2013, 11:03 AM
I'll add it in. If someone talks back about it not being there - folks can refer them to the rules that pop up upon loading GB.

Btw, I'm going to change the address because I'm tired of the old one. And because I just feel like it today. :cat_ohoho:

06-05-2013, 09:49 PM
Hmm, I did, actually. I remember I had reverted it before, and then someone updated it (I hate it when two different programs require different Java versions), but it wouldn't let me revert it again. I'll try it again this evening and see if I can achieve some better results.

Thanks, Cora! :}

I just sent Thor another email (his other one) and hopefully I can get a reply. If I don't get anything by next week I'll reinstate the old Groupboard. It's not a pretty but it works.

Looking at their site, it seems that they're having problems with some of their servers. Not certain if it's related or not. I've sent Thor an email, but we'll see if anything comes of it.

I had a look at the error log quickly, their databasing servers are offline. This basically means one of two things.

Site admin is performing maintenance on the hosting servers.

Or, the more likely scenario considering how long this issue has gone for.

The hosting servers need maintenance in some way or are generally fucked and site admin doesn't give a shit.

Yeah, I think it's day three now, but hopefully it shouldn't take too much longer.



We apologize! Our server has experienced a power supply unit failure. The hard disk is expected to be intact. Incidentally, our data center provider has informed us that it is no longer solvent, and will be shutting down operations shortly. We have therefore decided to migrate to a cloud service. This process should take 1 - 3 days to complete, depending on how soon we receive our hard disk.
