Gallery Folders

A Guide To EDigital

Please check the comments of your submission if it was declined!

We provide mini-critiques with some advice and notes about the wallpaper.

What can I submit?
Anything that enhances your desktop experience, the pony way. Generally, our folder categories will give you a clue into what we accept.

Mature content is accepted, but only if it is properly marked. There is no separate folder for such content; you can submit it to the folder that fits best.

My submission wasn't accepted. Why?
In general, your submission is most likely not of a high enough quality. A simple vector attatched to a two-tone background may be of good enough quality for yourself, but not for the group.

The same applies to non-wallpapers - Rainmeter skins, browser themes, cursors, etc. If they're badly done, look rushed, or incomplete, they will not be accepted.

Wallpaper Standards
Our most common rejected submissions include the following:
:bulletblue: Lack of Depth: Does your wallpaper look flat? A vector sitting in front of a background with nothing but a flat or gradient colour will get you nowhere here. In exceptional cases this can be overlooked, but not often.
:bulletgreen: Lack of Composition: Knowing certain adages like empty space and the rule-of-thirds will help your composition considerably.
:bulletyellow: Lack of Effort: It's obvious even to the untrained eye when there is a lack of effort. Quality over quantity is what we look for; the latter on its own won't help.
:bulletorange: Colours: While occasionally planting a giant rainbow of colours can work, understanding and applying colour theory gives you a considerable advantage.
:bulletred: Incorrect Dimensions: No one likes a wallpaper that you have to stretch to fit on the desktop. More info on proper dimensions below.
:bulletpurple: Failure to Credit Others: If you use a vector, drawing, stock image, or other resource made by another artist, you must credit them.

We only take submissions that follow standard monitor resolutions. If you want to know what these are, Wikipedia has a list: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Display_… . The most common resolutions are 1920x1080 and 1920x1200, so we'd prefer if you created wallpapers in those dimensions. Wallpapers with resolutions smaller than 1280x720 will not be accepted.

Questions, comments, concerns?
Don't hesitate to contact the staff at Equestria Digital if there's an issue. Unless the issue is you lack of ability to cook. We can't help you with that.

Introducing the Equestria Digital Forums Posting Contest!


Forum Thread



About


To celebrate the launch of the Equestria Digital Forums 2.0, we are hosting a posting contest on the forums! The rules are simple: make good posts and topics on the forums and get points; the person with the most points at the end of the competition wins the grand prize (see below)!

The contest will run from 25 January 2014, 22:15 EST to 29 March 2014, 19:00 EST: a total of 63 days.

Rules and Scoring


- If you want to participate, you must announce your intention to do so in the forum thread. Yes, this does count as your first point.
- Please do not spam low-effort posts. If you are found doing so, you will be disqualified.

You can get points in a variety of ways!

- A constructive topic or post on any board is worth 1 point. A constructive post doesn’t necessarily have to contain critique or artwork, but should contain a fair amount of content.

- Participate in Wallpaper of the Week, our weekly wallpaper competition! This will net you 5 points per entry (you can enter one wallpaper each week). Please put effort into your entry. If you want to enter but have no experience with making wallpapers, there are many community members who would be willing to help you make one: just send them a private message on the forums!

- Refer a friend to the forums! You can get 10 points for each person that you refer. For you to qualify for the points, they must: 1) make at least 5 constructive posts on the forums, and 2) send the admins a private message stating your username. If they stick around and consistently post, you might get more points!

- More methods will be added as the contest progresses.

Prizes


There will be two winners for this contest! The person with the most points at the end of the contest wins the grand prize. A second winner will be chosen with a random number generator. To qualify for the random drawing, you must have at least 10 points. The grand prize winner is not eligible for the random drawing.

Grand Prize
- On the Equestria Digital Forums: a custom forum image title! It will look similar to the image titles given to the admins and moderators. You can choose the text of the image and the pony you want displayed on it, within reason.
- On deviantART: a three month Premium Membership, or 636 Points! A list of the benefits that come with a Premium Membership can be found here or on deviantART. You must have a deviantART account to receive the membership/points, or you may choose to transfer it to someone else.
- A giant cupcake! A preview of the cupcake.
- Omniscient-Duck will teach you about the glory of Fluttershy!

Random Winner
- On the Equestria Digital Forums: a custom forum image title! See the full description above.
- On deviantART: a three month Premium Membership, or 636 Points! See the full description above.

Possible Prizes
We haven't decided if these prizes will be offered or not.
- A vector of your original character from DoktorRF!
- The ability to choose the theme, within reason, for the Wallpaper of the Week following the end of the posting contest!

Ok... thats a little unfair, or what you think?
My last wallpapers you declined I got a info WHY you declined my work.
Thats ok, I can live with that...

But now? You let my last 4 wallpapers, I submitted over a few weeks, run out with no reasons?
If someone didn't like my art, its ok for me. I don't want to force someone to like my work, but please answer and tell me why. I mean, I submitted  more than a few wallpapers in your group, because I thought you like what I did and wanted to help me, to let others know.

Or don't you want to tell me every time my work is to bad?

If that wasn't the reason, it's fine.
You don't have to worry I will bother you again.

After you read my comment, just delete it.
Don't wanted to spam your comments.
But I wanted to let you know my point.

How would I go about making a request/suggestion for a ponified icon?  I just switched to the Palemoon browser and, well, with a name like that...

You'll need to ask a specific artist for that. You can go through the custom icon section to find some artists, though!

I'll do that, then.  I thought there might be some sort of central list here, that's all.  Thanks.  :)

Nevermind, I just talked to her and she apologized and added credit to the description.

The most recent wallpaper you guys accepted is stolen from me, and the uploader gave no credit whatsoever.


It's basically a combination of two of my wallpapers with a vinyl scratch vector slapped on.
