    I'll answer the ones Neg hasn't answered.

The way it's written now kinda sounds like you're asking us to post a link to our edit's thread in the thread itself.

    4. There's a box labeled "Awards" with the options to select "Fanedit Of The Month Winner" and/or "Annual Fanedit Award Winner", but if we're submitting our edit to be added to the site it's because it's new and wouldn't even have been in contention for either award yet.
    There are some submission boxes that will be hidden, and only admin will see them. In short, don't worry about these since you won't see 'em anyway.

    Amazon.com please.

    Good question. The admin haven't decided on the best course for art yet. See the answer to UA's question below.

    Artwork is mandatory. If you're talking cover art that's because an admin has to add specific code to make the artwork display properly. As such, it will be hidden. (See above.)

    Undecided. On one side we want to make it as easy for editors to update their pages (thus making it easier on us to administrate the site), but we also want some moderation for quality control. I'll have to get back to you on this.

    Do you have an estimate of when the IFDB will be open to see for members who have not yet had any fanedits published?

    I hadn't thought about that. Regarding the cutlist though, I think it should be made mandatory. It'll certainly help their edit(s) get noticed and viewed. I mean, who's going to want to check out an edit if the editor isn't willing to list what's been cut or added? You've got to give the potential viewer an incentive to be interested in the edit. I can understand not wanting to list every single cut if the list is really long, but at least list the major ones and then add "and way too many more to list", or something along those lines.

    I was referring to cover/disc art. The reason I asked is because there's no asterisk, thus denoting a mandatory field, next to the artwork section on the submissions form. If it's mandatory then an asterisk should be present.

    Couldn't you just add an "Edit" button on the edit page itself so that we can submit new artwork? And I thought we were able to edit the information for our own edits, but I'm not seeing any way to do that on any of my edit pages.

    This is has been an ongoing process. I believe that the original agreement by the staff was that this will be required, but that as old edits may not have this info, it was not a required field as we input the data. I will make this required so that future submissions as well as any modifications to existing edits will require an entry.

    Keep in mind however that the quality of the cutlist is still at the discretion of the editor and there is no avoiding the lazy "Too many to list" response.

    There are two different ways, or steps for handling artwork.

    The field you were likely referring to is the field which determines the art which is displayed on the Artwork tab. If possible this field will be made invisible to faneditors as only administrators should be updating this field.

    For submitting artwork, there is the 'attach' function that is the last item of the submission form. I do not believe that this can be a form with an asterisk which donates required for two reasons, first just from a programming standpoint the attach function is not actually part of the jreview software, it's part of the joomla system and I simply don't think it could be required. However, even if it could, this would then require that anyone updating/editing their form would be required to submit additional artwork, which would obviously cause problems.

    However, I believe that to submit additional artwork (after initial submission) the attach form will work for getting the files to us so that we can put them where they need to be.

    Couldn't you just add an "Edit" button on the edit page itself so that we can submit new artwork? And I thought we were able to edit the information for our own edits, but I'm not seeing any way to do that on any of my edit pages.
    There is. Please look more closely

    That was the field I was referring to. Why should it be invisible to faneditors? If we're supposedly allowed to edit the info for our edits, shouldn't we be able to add additional artwork? I mean it all has to be moderated regardless, right?

    And where is the attach form?

    I'm currently looking at the page for one of my edits and there are no "edit" buttons in any of the tabs, or anywhere else on the page for that matter. Where exactly is this edit button supposed to be situated?

    Part of adding the artwork includes an administrator putting the cover art into the FTP for the site. The artwork you download on fanedit pages you'll notice come from "www.fanedit.org/images". Since non-administrators don't have access to the FTP they won't be able to add in the HTML code needed to display the art.

    To display the art properly, in the "Coverart" field the administrators need to put an HTML code in and then we add the appropriate URLs.

    Looks like it's not on there yet.

    At the top is a button "Manage" with a drop down menu.
    Go then, there are other worlds than these.

    Nope, no "Manage" button on mine.

    Weird. The code monkey(s) will surely fix that. Thanks for pointing it out.
