Re: Portrait Submission
Do we know what part of the month this usually gets completed?

Not chasing the team for this cycle, just wondering when the group thinks I should start looking?

Re: Portrait Submission
In reply to Frozen Fajita (msg # 433):

Things remain on hold for the moment, unfortunately, because Warrax is waiting on jase to address a part of the process. Under normal circumstances, submissions are accepted up to the 14th of the month, and portraits submitted during that period are posted before the end of the same month. E.g., submissions from April 15th through May 14th would appear in the gallery no later than May 31st.

We're still accepting submissions, so hopefully when jase has time to do what needs done, there will be a big group upload of the current backlog. On the one hand, that means I'm not sure when the next batch of submissions will be uploaded; on the other, it also means everyone has time to double-check and make certain any entries you're waiting on meet the criteria. I did have to reject a few for not including their RPoL username in this most recent round, so if you submitted recently, please glance over your email and follow up to append your username, if you didn't, so that we can get your avatars in for the next cycle (which will presumably still be included in a mass upload).

Thanks! I did include my username, although I didn't think to include which section I wanted it in.

I don't mind where it gets sorted to.

This is the sort of thing that is useful if you guys updated the user base on so we know to 'temper expectations'.

We see the broken link in the male rugged gallery and are attempting to address it.

Re: Portrait Submission
Good to hear. Is there any news on when updates might restart or if anyone informed may be available to answer my tag question?

Re: Portrait Submission
To my knowledge, no one is currently tagging portraits and there is no currently active plans to restart the process.  Jase is the only one who can answer the question about when updates will restart, though I suspect that there will just be an announcement by the portrait editors once he's had a chance to sort it out.

Deeply disappointing, that. Thank you for the swift update.

Everything through April has been sent. There's a new wrinkle in how the upload process works since the server move, but we hope to have everything through April accessible in rather short order. We are, as ever, still accepting submissions.  Updates are still going to be a little fickle for the time being, but they will continue.

We aren't planning on carrying on with tagging at this time. I think we're waiting for a bit more stability before re-tabling that discussion.

Re: Portrait Submission
Adding my voice to the request for updates, since the game that portraitless PC was in is waking up and I really need her! Any idea when things will be fixed? No idea? Either way it would genuinely be good to know.

So, we in theory should be up to date. I'm a little busy this afternoon, but I'll be having a go at one part of things this evening to see if there was any problem. I know the uploads got done, and we're continuing in our process, so I'll troubleshoot and get back to everyone once I know what's going on. I'd look at this the other day and confirmed that all the files got uploaded, though, so at least that's good to go.

Cheers, and thanks for your patience!

EDIT: I should add, we'll have to ask for a little more patience than in previous years because post-server move, we don't have as much control over things as we used to. So hopefully this is an easy fix and I'll be able to sort it out this evening, but if not, it'll be a bit while we do the dance.

Have a look now and let me know what's going on, apart from male rugged 834, which we already know is borked :)

Re: Portrait Submission
I gots me seagull! [seagull-can-has dance]

As for the PC, though, there's no sign of my lass in 17th, 18th, 19th, Buisness, Rugged, Gangster or Casual.

One of the older Cree ladies is in Male 17th which I clicked by mistake, though...maybe she's ended up somewhere over there or in Neutral, I shall check presently.

Re: Portrait Submission
...nope. No sign of the grandma submitted before her, either, though - perhaps they got flagged as spam? They were the right size with my username and suggested gallery and everything.

Re: Portrait Submission
rMail me a link to the image and I'll have a look. I can browse the gallery of submitted stuff on my hard drive faster than the stuff in the actual RPOL gallery.

I wasn't able to find the portrait I submitted for June but maybe not everything is done yet.

Re: Portrait Submission
I see the only one I submitted, a Netflix Iron Fist, made the cut. Now the difficult task of fixing this trainwreck of a character can begin.

Much appreciated!

Re: Portrait Submission
For some of those missing, there is another round of portraits which have yet to be uploaded, so it's possible the portraits sought are in there. I will let everyone know once those have been uploaded as well, and you can look again.

tib, I don't see your image yet, but I'll look in the newer stuff as well and see if it's there.

Re: Portrait Submission
Ah, thank you! It is very good to be updated, and with potential progress at that.

The PC's portrait was sent in in June, so that could very well be it by the sound of things.
