Re: Resuming Portrait Submissions - October 30, 2017
Mine isnít a duplicate as far as I can tell.  If it was the one that wasnít usable - is there any way to find out ? I could resubmit at higher quality next month.

Re: Resuming Portrait Submissions - October 30, 2017
There's not a great way to tell, no. I can try and take a look through the submission emails, if they haven't been deleted, though there's little guarantee anything that went to the bin after attachments were uploaded is still there. Like I said, there have just been a small handful that were rejected, so chances are good yours is supposed to be in the gallery; it just may not have made it properly in there because of the difficulties we've had in the last few weeks.

And once again, be sure to check every gallery, just in case. The newest ones are always on the last page or two. There have been times when something I looked at and thought "Male > Fantasy > Warrior" instead wound up in "Male > Scifi > Human" and so on. It does happen.

Re: Resuming Portrait Submissions - October 30, 2017
Iíve tried more galleries with no luck.  Any info about the reject might help, like the original resolution (even a roug( idea) or just a description - but if itís not something you can remember off hand I suppose there are more important things on your plate.

While the uploads arenít working reliably it might be worth recording the rejects.  I know itís more work and I wouldnít suggest it if there wasnít all this uncertainty.

Re: Resuming Portrait Submissions - October 30, 2017
What I'd recommend for now is, if you've searched the last pages in all the galleries and can't find your particular portrait, send us an email with your submission attached and "submission verification" in the subject line. Put the month you originally submitted it in the body to help us narrow down where to look, and we'll compare it to what we've worked on and make sure it's in the output folder so we can track it down.

Done, thank you.  (Though I admit to not checking the Pokťmon galleries!)

Re: Resuming Portrait Submissions - October 30, 2017
Any chance the rejected submitters could be notified and told why when they are rejected?  It would certainly cut a little bit of some people's wondering "was I rejected" queries out of the mix in the future.

Shannara didn't see a reason to do that, and given her experience, I think trusting her judgment is probably safe.

I've searched as deeply as I can but I still can't find my own submission that I submitted in the end of December actually


If its the one for my game that you're talking about, then I found it in the galleries. I sent you a PM there about it :)

Re: Resuming Portrait Submissions - October 30, 2017
So far as I can tell my February submission did not make it through (I did send a confirmation, as advised).  On the assumption that it was the quality that was the problem Iíll resubmit a higher-quality version unless told otherwise,

A reminder too, just in case, not to submit links to images. Make sure your submission is attached to your email as a file!

Re: Resuming Portrait Submissions - October 30, 2017
I think that those that were successfully uploaded are in.  From what Iíve been told in email (thank you) my February submission was accepted - but so far as I can tell it hasnít been successfully uploaded even now.  There are still problems, it seems.

Re: Resuming Portrait Submissions - October 30, 2017
Admittedly, I'm a bit behind in the goings on of the new portrait team so forgive me if I've missed something and sound like a broken record here.

Assuming we got our submissions in on time, the estimated upload time for the month's portraits are the last week or two of the month, correct? Not sure if the team is still working on previous months' submissions, though it wouldn't surprise me considering the likely backlog of people's desired submissions during the gallery's downtime.

TL;DR - Checking to see if we should be looking for April's submissions to have been added yet or if patience should continue to be a virtue.

Thanks for the hard work portrait team!

Speaking of which, though. I would like to check in and see how that's going, given it has been a while. Not really intending to rush it, but I am curious how it's going.

I'm curious about this, as well. I'm not sure if I should be looking for my submission now or at the end of June.

Thanks to the portrait team. :)
