1.0 Submission Title
Special characters, numbers, and spaces are not permitted at the beginning of the title. Your spray must have a searchable name. The name should describe the spray, not be your personal indexing procedure.
For CS 1.6 and DOD, the file format is .wad and must be named tempdecal.wad. This is the only file format that works for this game. Anything else will be useless to the user. For CSS, HL2DM and DODS, file formats are .bmp, .jpg, .jpeg, .vtf, and .tga. These games are very flexible with their file formats as you can see. Though you should make sure that you're saving an animated spray or transparent spray as their respective, and correct file formats. For CS2D, the file format is .bmp.
An in-game screenshot of your spray is required with every submission. Please take the screenshot close enough for people to see your work. Also, take the screenshot out in the light, not in the shadows or another dark place.
1.3 Proper Credits
Please be sure to add proper credits to your submission. All authors and companies, anyone involved in the making of the spray, must be properly credited. Adding the website where you got the image is not acceptable as credits. You may add "Unknown" in the credits in cases where the original author's name is not listed. Although, this is not to be used as an excuse for laziness. In the author field, separate each name with a new line, as the instructions say. List authors once only.
Only submit quality work. If you know it looks bad, don't submit it regardless. Please make sure that all artwork used is resized properly, and it doesn't stretch or distort in-game.
There are some items which may not be included in your submissions. They follow below.
Personalization is not allowed in spray submissions. Personalized sprays are for a specific person or small group and aren't ideal for community use. This includes names of any kind; people, clans, groups. etc.
1.5.2 Pornography or Nudity
All people, real, anime, or cartoon, must be clothed. This means they must be wearing a top and a bottom piece of clothing. Ribbons, strings, pasties, see through clothing, hands, etc. do not count. It does not matter if they are facing front or not. There are no exceptions for legal reasons.
If duplicate sprays are submitted, the older spray is allowed to stay and the newest is deleted. Sprays that are similar are subject to the judgment of administrators, but also fall under this rule.
1.5.4 Real Blood or Guts
This includes dead people and dead animals.
1.5.5 Animal Cruelty
No depictions of animal cruelty will be permitted.
1.5.6 Personal Photographs
This includes, but is not limited to, pictures of you, your pets, or your friends
Any advertisements on this site must be paid for. Do not include any ads in your submissions.
1.6 Studio Releases
A spray submission may only be a studio release if the image was originally created by the studio. Googled images that are not heavily altered to be considered original works cannot be studio releases. Images that are simply converted to spray format also cannot be studio releases.
Non-compliance with any of the above clauses, unless otherwise noted, will result in your submission being withheld or deleted at the administrator's discretion.
If you are having trouble understanding any of these rules, please contact a moderator or administrator before submitting. To view a list of moderators and administrators, head over to this page.
