The watermarks are to prevent other pages from hosting their images for free on OGA, but linking to them from their own site, so that OGA has to foot the bill for the image bandwidth. The artwork is and always will be free on OGA, just not hotlinking the images from other sites.
The reason it is showing up on OGA is because the hotlinking system thinks the https version of the site is a foreign site trying to steal bandwith. The https portion of OGA is still being worked on and is not fully ready. In the meantime, the easiest way to stop seeing the OGA watermark is to go to http://opengameart.org instead of https://opengameart.org
The tag "3D" is unneccessary and does not help people find the art when it is in the "3D Art" category. See http://opengameart.org/content/art-tags for more information.
So the text in the document was the text that did not work?
Does it still not work? Does it give you the same error when pasting that text into the HTML source editor?
Link received. Thanks.
Typically that error is caused by an unusual character in the text. (microsoft word likes to replace " with a fancy version " that can break the drupal text interpreter, for example) however, since you sent me the html of the submission, I was able to submit the whole thing with proper formatting and everything. No errors. Not sure what is causing it but the html in that document, when I paste it into OGA's HTML source editor, it saves fine. This is the html of the forum post that did NOT work?
If you were to go to the forum, click new topic, click the Edit HTML Source button, paste in the contents you sent me, and clicked Save, it gives you the same 500 error?
I can definitely understand the frustration, but I can't seem to duplicate the issue at all. Any additional information you can give me would be helpful for resolving this problem so you don't have to go through this any more. You say you eventually got it to work. Can you provide a link to the forum topic that you eventually got to post? Or is the contents of that google-doc the text that eventually worked and not the text that did NOT work?
If I can figure out why it didn't work, I can make sure you and others don't have to repeatedly try different things one piece at a time.
The tag "2d image" is unneccessary and does not help people find the art when it is in the "2D" category. See http://opengameart.org/content/art-tags for more information.
Please paste the contents of what you were trying to post into a google doc, then PM me a link. I believe I can figure out why it is doing that.
Ah. Yes that would explain it. Please add to submissions by editing the post and not by commenting with an attachment just like you said. :P
No. Svg's upload just fine for me. I don't recommend using them as a preview image, because they won't show up, but there is nothing preventing them from being added to a submission. Or are you talking about posting SVG's to a forum post? That should work too, actually. It just might not display properly. Can you take a screenshot of the message saying you can't upload it?
