Requesting new images:
When there isn't an image available for your TV show, simply go to the site, find you TV show, and make a request.
In order to make the contributors lives easier, when you make a request you must provide at least one of the following: A) Quality artwork to be stripped for logo usage. B) Properly identifying and matching fonts in cases where A is not possible. C) Links to relevant sites in order to creatively make up a logo for a series that either has none or A & B aren't possible for.
You can make as many requests as you like, adding extra information each time (It will only show up as a single request though). The more resources and the better the quality of the resources the contributors have to work from, the more likely you are to get a logo made.
However, if you enter junk data just to make a request, you will in all likelyhood find your request deleted. Our contributors are making images for YOU, so we expect YOU to help them out by doing some of the legwork. If you can't be bothered to source the material required to make an image for YOUR show, why should they be bothered to make it?
When you login to the control panel, if you click on the relevant section you can see all the currently pending requests, any resources attached to them, and you can upload images to all the requests you want to at the same time.
When we added CleartART/TV Thumbs/Season Thumbs any authors that weren't in our database we automatically generated an account, if you want to reclaim an account that was automatically generated just send me your email address and you will then be able to recover the password.
More information will be added in due course
Rules for submissions can be found here: http://fanart.tv/rules/
A quick video to show what you can do with the music images from fanart.tv http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sd9T_C0CpcY
cdART: images should be 1000 x 1000px, if you can't find a decent image at this size consider creating one, I have attached a template PSD here: http://fanart.tv/resources/fanart-cd-template-v2.psd please use this in order to ensure consistant images
Artist Backgrounds: Images should be 1920 x 1080px, they should also be of very high quality, we don't want to add crap quality images.
Album covers: This is currently set at 1000 x 1000px
Music ClearLOGOs: Same rules as for their TV siblings
There is a facebook style chat bar at the bottom of the site for logged in users, feel free to hit us up there or on IRC on #fanart.tv on Undernet
Kode Wrote:Designers wanted!!
Ok, some of you may have followed the old clearlogos thread and know I'd been waiting a while to make this site, waiting for Sranshaft to do some designs for me, they never materialised and he's never on my IM to bug about it, so in the end I just jumped in myself, looked at some sites I liked, borrowed some ideas from here and there (thanks trakt.tv ;P) used a similar colour scheme to PhoneShop and arrived at where we are now.
However, I'm a developer, not a designer, trying to design as well as develop is really slowing down progress, and it's starting to show, the header section is getting cluttered and things aren't flowing as well as they should/could.
So this is a callout to any talented designers out there that might want to get involved.
Find a part of the site that could be done better, come up with some cool ideas, send me a PM with a mockup and your IM details (I can do, in order of preference, gtalk / msn / facebook chat), if you can't do IM still feel free to PM me, but i'd prefer people I can speak to over IM as email/PM is just too slow and disjointed.
