    Agreement with Abh Nation

    Post by JGZinv on 3/22/2009, 1:00 am

    I've been talking with Acid at AN for a couple days now about using the images off the site
    for banner creation or what things could be used here. After much discussion this is what it boils down to.
    This was reprinted from two PMs with permission.

    2. Regarding your list, you may use any of the emoticons. I made only about half of them, the rest were gifts from members.

    As for images. You may use the product images if you plan to make a
    product page. You may use certain wallpapers I will list below. The
    rest are either my own, or I did not get permission for you to reuse
    them from the author.

    You may not use any of the wallpapers for
    banners though. You can certainly use them for your own personal
    avatar, but not an avatar that anyone on the forum can use.

    Also, since none of the articles in the Fan Fiction page belong to me, I
    can't give you permission to use them. However the authors are listed,
    and registered members, so feel free to ask those individuals if you
    can use them. The same applies to any of the fan art that is not mine.

    If you want generic avatars and banners that any of your members can use,
    you may use anything you find in the download section, except for the
    the AIM icons, which are not mine. If you want to use those, ask
    PsiCop, who owns them.

    3. Now the list of wallpapers you can use. On the page called, "Downloads",
    you may use only the first three wallpapers with my permission. The others do
    not belong to me, thus I can't give you permission to reuse them. They were taken
    with permission from a 3D ship modeling website that no longer exists.

    On the page called, "Wallpapers", in order from left to right, and top to
    bottom, you may use 2, 3, 4, 8, 10, 12, 14, 15, 17, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23,
    24, 28, 29, 38, 39, 40, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55,
    and 56.

    All the ones listed above ares ones that are either
    official, or were made by myself. The other ones not listed include a
    few I made that I will not let anyone reuse, but are mostly the work of
    others. You may not use any of the wallpapers that aren't official for
    banners or any other site graphics. Keep in mind I spent a lot of time
    making or finding those images, so by letting you use them, I am giving
    you quite a head start.

    The colors from the blue forum skin are
    #1E2F54 (blue), #CCCCCC (text gray), #FFFFFF (link white), and #B6B5B5
    (background gray). There are other colors, but those are the primary
    four colors.



    3.
    On the page called, "Wallpapers", in order from left to right, and top
    to bottom, you may use 2, 3, 4, 8, 10, 12, 14, 15, 17, 19, 20, 21, 22,
    23, 24, 28, 29, 38, 39, 40, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54,
    55, and 56.

    All the ones listed above ares ones that are either
    official, or were made by myself. The other ones not listed include a

    banners or any other site graphics. Keep in mind I spent a lot of time
    making or finding those images, so by letting you use them, I am giving
    you quite a head start.


    For clarity, based on this paragraph versus the one in section 2.

    You may not use any of the wallpapers for banners though. You can certainly
    use them for your own personal avatar, but not an avatar that anyone on
    the forum can use.


    They contradict a bit, am I or am not allowed to use the "official" wallpapers for banner creation?

    Lastly, can I post the "agreement part" of the PM as to what can and can not be
    used so that my members don't run into problems? Obviously we're going
    to run into someone asking me "Why?" can't we use this or that images.
    Might as well have the words straight from the source.

    You must have misread my message. You may use those selected wallpapers as
    downloads for your site. You may not use ANY of them to make graphics
    for your site, except those that are official. Those official
    wallpapers that you may use for site graphics include 4, 8, 17, 20, 21,
    22, 40, 49, 50, 51, 52, and 53. You can also use any screen capture
    images you find in the gallery. Any wallpapers in the previous list
    that are not in this list are NOT official wallpapers. They are fan art
    that I granted you permission to redistribute, but NOT to modify for
    any purpose other than your own private use (IE your personal forum
    avatar).

    Yes you may repost this list elsewhere.

    I'd propose that we make some topic to discuss all design ideas for any graphics on site/forum and just make new stuff. I believe i can do something to help as soon as i'm done with most of the fic currently in progress (can't keep Almael waiting).
    Maybe there are other people around with some photoshop\corel etc. skill.
    Though design is not exactly something i had a lot of experience with - the main direction of my studies are traditional art (hand painting),concept art or pure 3D CGI, but if we are talking about things like main pic at top of the Abh nation - it should be no problem as long as there's high-res Lafiel pics availible to use.
    Btw - can't you simply use cool screenshot for now?

    Screenshots from the series (dvd capture for example) would be ok under those rules.
    The banner that we have we are allowed to use under those rules as well.

    I think we could have forum skins that each user can pick what they want - however
    that only is possible on the phpBB2 (maybe 3 but I don't think so) forum type so
    I'd have to reset the board. This black version skin isn't available for the phpBB style, so
    we'd need to pick something else and build/replace on it from there.

    It is possible for each user to pick their own skin in PHPBB3, provided that skin has been installed on the boards. You'd have to ask Diaho how it works, though... my coding knowledge is limited.

    We're dealing with a different administration panel Xor...
    what applies to your board is unlikely to apply here in a general sense.

    I've admin'd phpBB, phpBB2, phpNuke, IPB, SMF, ezboard, and Yuku before.
    None of these are the same as this system.

    Hmm... well, your FAQ says you're running PHPBB2. I think its been modded, though, because it looks a little different from the 2 I remember.

    Sorry I wasn't of much help. Sad

    Actually this should be IPB according to the skins and whatnot.
    The forum host is... weird.... let's leave it at that. I think I can switch
    between forum types at will though.. so they must have some kind of
    generic database going.

    *shrug* It works.

    Even if they didn't create a database of their own, they have some licence from somewhere....
    Anyway, alhought, I like this black design, it feels a bit monoton. Maybe just mixing a color like blue would do the trick.
