Go To Topic - New Feature: Captions!

Hey everyone!

Today we are launching a caption system for wallpapers!

Have you ever noticed that a lot of the titles for wallpapers is pretty generic?

For example the title for this wallpaper https://wall.alphacoders.com/big.php?i=975986 at the time I'm posting this is: 'Original 4k Ultra HD Wallpaper'. Ok that's fine - but it really doesn't tell you a ton about the image if you're clicking a link to it.

It's much better if a wallpaper has a nice descriptive name - but a wallpaper can only have one name at a time. It's no fun to think of a cool name for a wallpaper, and have it disappear.

Which is why we have expanded names to a caption system! Captions can be voted as either funny or accurate, and give users a lot more flexibly when it comes to helping describe images. The most accurate caption will be used as the name of the wallpaper (authors and creators will still control the final name)

If you are used to adding names for wallpapers, the new way to go about it is to add a caption!

I've posted the rules for captions at Community Abyss: https://communities.alphacoders.com/topics/view/6765

Let me know if you have questions!

Hello KEJI,

We don't currently have a way to show only submissions without authors.

Go To Topic - Batch Submissions

KEJI,

It's a good idea, but it's nuanced enough that it's not something we can implement right now. Organizing the submission on your computer into two separate batches, submitting the anime wallpapers, and once those are done, submitting the fantasy wallpapers, would be the ideal flow with our current feature set.

Hey everyone!

Sorry for being a couple days late. The special raffle for November is an author adding contest.

Either submit content with an author, or find the author for old content. The more content we have with correct author information, the better Alpha Coders is!

Scoring URL is at https://alphacoders.com/contest/author-score

Hello everyone!

As most of you know there's a pretty constant struggle between letting people submit what they want, and being advertiser friendly.

What's considered advertiser friendly continues to shift - and right now it's getting a lot more strict. Previously when this has happened we have done massive content purges to keep our good standing with the big guys.

We are going to try something new - creating a home for content that isn't advertiser friendly. That home is Image Abyss. It's a natural fit, since the point of Image Abyss is that it's where users can escape some of the nuanced moderation that makes things like Wallpaper Abyss exceptional but also hard to submit to for a lot of users.

The provocative standards for Image Abyss are going to be loosened. Quite a bit. I sense we will have to be even more strict with Wallpaper Abyss in the near future, so that's the other side of the coin.

As with any big change there will be some hiccups as we dial down the exact rules, and people submit images that are right on the border of the new rules. The general goal, however, is: Image Abyss can be a home for content that is not advertiser friendly, but has artistic merit. So still no porno or stuff like that :p But a photo of a statue with no clothes? Sure.

If you are a trusted user and would like to be part of our beta for being able to directly submit not-advertiser friendly content, please private message me. This feature should open up pretty fast to everyone

Go To Topic - No more notifications?

For me Google can't make up it's mind if the daily notifications go in the main inbox or in the promotions tab

Hello everyone,

We are updating some of the rules around what we allow as author content here at Alpha Coders! There are always edge cases with creator and author content, and we want to do our best to clearly state the rules for them.

You can read the entirety of the upload rules at:

https://initiate.alphacoders.com/upload/rules

The section changed relates specifically to author content:

We have author rules too. To mark yourself as the author of content you need to have generated it, and it must be unique to you in some way. This means anime screenshots, video game cutscenes, and other images that are not unique to you would not be considered author content. Things like video game screenshots using a camera mode that are unique to you are acceptable.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
