The Fractal Forum
The aim of the Fractal Forum is to provide a source of help in a 'community' sense. It is also a place to get to know other fractal artists, and share in the experience of creation.
As this is a community, some off-topic postings are welcome. This would include special announcements, celebrations, and general greetings. Anything going above and beyond this, may be grounds for moving the thread to another forum, or deletion as necessary, to maintain the 'focus' of the forum.
Everyone is invited, and encouraged, to participate in forum discussions. If help or advice is needed with a program, the gallery, etc.,or just a general 'how do you...' type of question, please post it. The only dumb questions are the ones that aren't asked :)The Fractal Gallery
Fractals of all types and genres are welcome here. This includes both 'pure' and post-processed fractal images.
Images where non-fractal imagery (Poser, 3D, tubes, photos, etc.) are the main focus, may be better suited in the "Mixed Medium" Gallery here on Renderosity.
In the case of 3D objects: Fractal programs capable of 3D output are fine. However renderings from strict 3D programs, such as Bryce, have their own respective galleries, or they may be suited in "Mixed Medium" if the main part of a composition.
While these are simply guidelines, extreme cases may warrant an IM asking the artist if another gallery may be a better choice.The Fractal Forum Challenges
We currently provide 2 Challenges each month:
Themed Challenge- Entries submitted based on a theme which is picked by the First Place winner of the previous month's Themed Challenge.
Please read all rules on posted Challenge pages before submitting an entry. If an entry doesn't meet the requirements, the member will get an IM similar to this:
This message is to inform you that your entry in the XXXX Challenge has been disapproved as it does not comply with the rules as stated on the Challenge page.
Specifically this rule: "XXXXXXXX"
Please be aware of the posted rules and try again.
The only exceptions to this would be in such cases as language barrier or site problems while uploading, as determined by the Challenge managers.
If there is ever any question about rules or requirements for a particular Challenge, please post them in the Challenge announcement thread, or contact Lenord Site Mail Email BEFORE submitting your entry.Last words
Above all, please remember the Renderosity Terms Of Service when posting in the forum and gallery, and also when commenting on images. Hurtful words and personal attacks help nobody.
We thank you for taking the time to look this over. Have fun, and happy Fractaling!
