Ah, you two  beat me to it, I'd just spotted it as well.

Thanks for finding that, tibio.

EDIT: Aaaand, fixed.

Sorry, I got so excited I rushed off to finish that guide's bio without noticing the typo. Thanks to everyone paying attention on that one!

Re: Portrait Submissions - On Hold Until Further Notice
I submitted a portrait on March 1st and don't see it with this batch, should I resend it? I didn't get an e-mail rejection so I'm not sure if it was missed/unable to be cropped, etc. I checked through Casual, which seemed to be the most fitting, and I don't think I saw a duplicate.

Re: Portrait Submissions - On Hold Until Further Notice
Morgan will try and hunt down the submission at some point, but can you describe the picture itself? There's the off-chance I just missed it when I was doing the uploads. I doubt it, but it's worth a look!

Re: Portrait Submissions - On Hold Until Further Notice
In reply to Whatsinaname0 (msg # 301):

I don't see a submission email with your name on it or even one received on March 1, actually. If we received it, then the only thing I can think may have happened is if you left your username off or similar and it was rejected, it's just now been long enough that anything in the trash folder would've been auto-deleted. So, if it was a rejection, I wouldn't be able to find it now if it was sent on March 1.

Go ahead and resend it, and double-check that your username is somewhere in the email. I'll keep an eye out for it.

In reply to Morgan Coldsoul (msg # 303):

Okay, I'll resend. I had my account name in the subject and description, but it might've just seen it as spam since I didn't type much else. It's a mohawked 20-something in casual wear. Thanks for keeping an eye out!

Re: Portrait Submissions - On Hold Until Further Notice
No problem. Sorry about that; there have been one or two that somehow haven't gotten through (or took 2 tries), or so it seems based on feedback.

As always, to anyone who doesn't see their submission added to the gallery: Remember to send the image as an attachment or embed within your email (not a link, ever!), and to include your RPoL username in the subject line or the body of the email so it's clear who you are.

Re: Portrait Submissions - On Hold Until Further Notice
Is there a way to view the portraits without going in through the Character Details in a game? Thanks.

Not that I know of, shy of inputting the URLs for each individual file into your browser's address bar. jase might know different, though.

Re: Portrait Submissions - On Hold Until Further Notice
hey, I just talked to Warrax and he said that he didn't get my portrait submission (painting of a woman with black hair and blue eyes in light grey/silver armor).

Do you know what happened to it? Was there an issue with the picture, or did the email not show up?

Re: Portrait Submissions - On Hold Until Further Notice
Couldn't tell you specifically. If you still have the original sent email, double-check it and make sure
  1. the image is attached as a file or embedded in the email
  2. your RPoL username is clearly included in the subject line or body of the email

Those are the two big oopses that people make, and if either of those requirements isn't met, it's rejected. You can look at the list of other rules to be sure whether it may accidentally have violated any of those (such as being a duplicate), but those two are the main ones that we see.

If you've still got the first email you sent and it's something like the image was a link rather than an attachment, just fix that and send it again. We can roll it into the next batch, no problem.

Re: Portrait Submissions
Okay.  Bit extra this month (last month...).  Did some file clear-out and an archive of the portrait selection as well as the usual additions.

I'm still in the process of doing things, but here's the update.

11 male portraits added. Demihuman, 17th, 19th and 20th century, casua, gangster, rugged and alien were updated.

4 neutral portraits added (Monster, Demihuman, Casual and Alien).

9 female portraits added (Demihuman, Spell-caster, Warrior, Casual, Rugged and Human).
