It might still be waiting to be reviewed. If you feel it’s overdue, feel free to notify an admin about it on the irc or through Da notes.
You need to customize them both at once.
Yes, but you’ll need a dye cosmetic for that, which will become available as a reward/purchasable item soon.
There’s also going to be a limit on just how much you can dye or how central the designs are, since we really don’t want people abusing fur dyes to totally change their Pokemon’s base colours.
For official submissions, you can only use items that you aquire through participation. Personal stories, you can do whatever, but it would be wise to keep things consistent with your main submissions.
If you want to use an accessory or item from a personal story in main submissions, you’ll have to make it using the accessory creator.
Feel free to remind admins if you feel your submission may have fallen off the radar. Dropping into the IRC to talk to someone about it directly is probably going to get you faster results.
Errand #8 is now up. I realize I’ve forgotten to announce errands on tumblr for a while now, oops!
In this Errand, teams join Kara on her personal mission to intimidate street thugs around Andalusst’s night markets. I guess old habits die hard.
both are illegal within the city, but the rules don’t extend to the outer lands. Tobacco can’t be grown anywhere near the city.
Obviously smoking is a minor offense though, compared to say thievery, so growing or distributing it on andalusst land is a bigger deal than possessing it.
Ah I see now. Well it is a little complex, but submitting a second piece to the late folder to get a merit/strike for the task is fine. You might just have to contact an admin first and ask them to update your rewards accordingly.
I’d personally prefer people didn’t do this -too- often though, as it is a bit troublesome to keep track of.
It’s preferred that you stick to your initial submission unless you submitted an incomplete one ( like a placeholder), and even then, placeholders need to at least depict your chosen outcome upon first submitting.
So yeah, you could edit it afterwards if you wanted to, but if you might not get the merit/strike. It’d need to be reviewed by the atlas moderators.
you’re able to set your app type as hybrid on the atlas. Right now this is just a convenience for artists who have both apps and want to be classified as such, but I think we could make actual hybrid apps in the future, possibly. No promises just yet.
A quick reminder that using PMDU as a platform to call out or otherwise harass a member you have personal issues with is definitely not OK.
Anyone caught submitting advertisements to PMDU that redirect to tumblr or other blogs for the sole purpose of chewing out another member will be looking at possible suspension. Please keep dirty laundry out of the group, especially if the aim is hate mongering.
On that note, if you’re being harassed or bothered persistently by a PMDU member, please come to the IRC and talk to an admin about it or send them a note on DA.
You don’t have to balance both perfectly when doing mixed media. An artist can use text or images to compliment their stronger point in order to practice the weaker of the two.
For example, a very detailed image with a short story to accompany it in the description panel to provide clarity, or a large and detailed story with a simple image to set the mood.
Being ‘good’ is never a requirement for any category in PMDU. As a member of PMDU, what’s important is self-progression and the desire to practice and improve your own goals. If that goal is to become strong in both art and writing categories, then members are quite welcome to fill out two applications, one for each category, or a hybrid app on the Atlas.
We’re actually sort of toying around with a ‘hybrid’ application on the atlas, but there’s no plans to make a unique app for this right now.
The primary reason why we separate written and drawn works, at least as far as I’m aware, is because they’re two different category of artistic discipline and separating them into groups makes it easier for people to know what they’re getting when they go to browse the archives. Say for example, a new writer wants to find others who specialize in writing for reference or collaboration, they’d check the written submissions folder.
It’s not the most elegant solution when it comes to mixed work, but in the case of those, we still like the artists to decide which embodies their submission better - art or writing.
Also, while we don’t have any competition for artists/writers yet (yet!) all submissions still need to be checked by mods at some point or other. It’s much easier for mods who have expertise with writing to stick to checking written stories and artist mods to check artworks. I know I personally have a much harder time browsing written work at an immediate level compared to images, since I’m a visual artist myself and writing isn’t my strong point.
Don’t worry though, we’re definitely am aware that the current system isn’t ideal for mixed artists. If anyone has suggestions for how they’d like to see things implemented differently, It’d be great to hear it so new options can be considered for future updates.
