Requesting approval for posting images/image tags

Hi everyone,
The time has finally come! You can now post images in certain forums.

To do this, you must submit a request to the Image Tags usergroup. Go to >>User Control Panel>>Usergroups<< and select Image Tags from the list of available memberships. Image Tags is an open group, so select "Join selected" and click submit. This should be submitted as a request, and the moderators will approve requests from users they deem responsible enough to post images. Moderators reserve the right to deny membership if they believe that the person is not fit for membership yet, but may encourage the user to re-apply later on. If the privilege is abused, the user will be removed from the group immediately, and an official warning or temporary ban may follow suit, depending upon the severity of the situation. You will receive an e-mail notification when your request has been accepted/denied. This is a trial usergroup; if it is abused too much, it may be suspended indefinitely.

You must have been a registered member for at least a month and have been active enough on the forums to be considered for image permissions.

The following forums do not currently allow images to be posted:
  • WolfQuest FAQ
  • WolfQuest News and Announcements
  • Nature & Wildlife Photography
  • User Artwork and Wild Canid User Artwork
  • Introduce Yourself
  • Get to Know Each Other
  • General Other Topic Discussion **
  • Other Video Games
** Avatars & Graphics and Media & Literature allow images to be posted.


You can check your membership status by going to >>User Control Panel>>Usergroups<<. If you are listed under Memberships with the usergroup Image Tags, you should be approved. Note that you do not need to set the group as your default to be able to post images. It has no special color or rank.

Any questions, comments, or concerns should be shared on this thread. Do not submit your request for usergroup membership in this thread; it will be ignored and split from the topic.
Thank you.

This is cool and interesting, good idea for those who want to make it easier to show how to do things in threads such as User Guides - The Game! :D

Updated thread regarding membership requirement. If you are not yet a member of the usergroup and wish to be considered, please take note of the new requirement. Thanks.

I'm confused if I am already in the Usergroup or not.

Is there a rule for what images can be posted? Must they be your own work, or can we post other's work with a source?

You are not, you will have to join the usergroup. To join the usergroup, go to your User Control Panel, click the Usergroups tab at the top, select the group named Image Tags, and select "Join Selected" from the dropdown box and press submit. That will submit a request to join the usergroup. One of the group leaders (currently myself, Koa, and Jewelz) will have to accept your request for you to "officially" be in the usergroup, but if you are accepted you will be able to use the image BBCode to post images in forums where it is currently enabled c:

As long as the image is appropriate for WQ and you do not take credit for an image you did not create, you'll be fine.

Oops, I actually said 'Make Default Usergroup' instead of 'Join Usergroup'. My bad! Sent a request :3

It's good that you only allow active members, it would be pretty pointless for inactive members, and I think that some new members may abuse the privilege and post images everywhere... (not talking about anyone in specific here, I don't even know anyone who would possibly do that.)

This is so great.

Not like I'll get permission soon, but. It's still so great.
