Hm that's an interesting thought but it would be hard to find something that explains what it is for without this kind of ambiguity...I'm definitely gonna think more about this. I also believe though that having the gallery descriptions displayed more visibly, also when browsing and not just when submitting, could already help a lot.
Well said, excellent advice It can sometimes be difficult to choose the best category, as a lot of work could fall into many and still be right...but it only takes a minute to choose and make sure it's in the right place I'm sure all of the current CVs will appreciate your taking the time to write this, and hopefully everyone will read it!
Wait up—since when go CVs move miscats, apart from glaringly obvious ones? For the longest time, the stock line was "We err on the side of the artist, so if they're putting their work there, there's a reason for it."
If I wrote fan fic, and wanted it to focus on the craft of the writing, I'd submit it to lit; if I wanted it to focus on the fandom and my interpretation of the characters, I'd put it in fanfiction.
Nothing has changed about that, if it's in the same parent category we should only move it if it's glaringly wrong and well if it's even in the wrong parent category then it's kinda strongly misplaced by default. And if we want to feature something that isn't in the right gallery as a DD we would have to move it first for instance.
Especially fan art (and fan fics) are grey zones though. As are some other categories of course but I feel fan art works are the best example for something that cannot be that easily categorized and would have to be treated on a case to case basis. I'm not gonna say too much though, I'll leave that up to the fan art CVs. ^^
As many times as I want to suggest u icons but most of them are in the pixel category. And same goes for M/A. Fanart that's in the M/A Category or Cartoons and Comics really bugs me. But I guess I will let the artist know nex time
If you find icons in the pixel gallery, please suggest them anyway because I can take care of the miscat and move it to the right category before featuring it. A short notification would be nice ofc so I don't overlook it. ^^
