Thanks!  I have thought for a while that it'd be nice to "subscribe" or "friend" artists.  Hopefully it'll grow community!

Hey Bart,

Well said, thanks for taking ahold of the problem.  As far as site changes go, I was wondering if you don't mind some suggestions?

For the "Recently Submitted Art", I was thinking we could possibly organize it as most "Recent Submitter" or author, whichever you'd prefer more (From Your Idea).  Then after clicking on that user, a window would scroll down and list the artwork posted by that person within in the last week (or whatever timeline would fit best now that its organized this way).  Although people who post a lot will be near the front, it will be easy to skip over these people and view authors you tend to like (viewing all their recent art).  

Another idea would be to have a "Subscribe to User" button.  This way you could split the "Recent Submitter" into two rows.  Only the users you're subscribed to would show up on the 1st row while the 2nd row would list everyone else.  

Since I don't know how hard it is to impliment this, please feel free to comment on what will or won't work.  I also have some ideas about how to unclutter the artwork, though not knowing how the website is programmed, it's hard to think out which changes are practical.

Thanks for the heads up, I hadn't seen that.  I just wanted to make certain we at least approached the situation correctly and that he knew it was cluttering the site.

My two cents:

Although I do agree that changes should be made and submissions be combined, I think many of the offenders did not realize they were upsetting people.  A polite e-mail/notification to the person beforehand could save humitiation and reputation (for all parties).  I'm not stating this as to defend anyones actions, just to remind everyone that although we are trying to provide the community with quality game art, we are also trying to provide a quality atmosphere.  We have a right to keep our forums and art database uncluttered, so I feel your frustration.. but did anyone privately send any of these 'offenders' a message first?

If you were going to, I apologize to steal your thunder, but you should enter this:

Hi ProgrammerArt,

It requires people to attribute me (on your game somewhere.. probably under credits), and to share any derivatives of the work under the same license.  This makes it so anyone using the art gives back to the community as well.  

So the answer is no, you don't need to do anything else.  Just make sure you include a link back to this webpage with my name (URL is fine).

I am planning on eventually releasing my art as CC-BY-3.0, which will allow everyone to use my art as they see fit (While still giving me credit).  Currently I have a game in production, so I would like anyone who is altering and using my art to share their art as well.

Hi gkjr1,

You're a creator of Graal, of one of the player worlds?  Not that it matters, just curious.  As to who made the assets, they were all done by members on this website, so finding them should hopefully be easy enough.  You can find most of the art posted by the original artists on here:

This website address will bring you to LPC entries (Liberated Pixel Cup).  It should help you find who made what assets.  As far as licensing goes, all LPC assets are licensed under CC-BY-SA or GPL or a less restrictive license.  You may have to do some searching around the site in order to get exact answers.. but the main contributors are still pretty active here on the site.

Welcome to OGA though! You should take a poke around, there should be a lot more art assets on here you may want to use.
