Y! Tutorial: How to Submit on 'EXTRAS' ^^!

Due to certain limitations related to the terms of our service provider, as much as the intended focus of the site overall -and the fact we're currently dealing with a-bit-outdated interface-, certain contents can't be directly submitted to Y!gallery's page -remember to check the Terms of Service for more info. on all of this-; BUT that's NOT to say the site is completely forbidding those contents, quite the contrary, they're very welcome! It's just that they require a few extra steps to be shared properly ^^!


An important thing first: just in case always check if you've 'Extras' visibility enabled in your 'Settings > Site' section, otherwise you won't be able to see the option on the Submit section of the site;


Once you click/tap on 'Submit > Extras' you will see a page asking you the regular information for your artwork such as Title, Comment, Content Filters, the Folder you wanna submit it in, etc.

After that you will be asked to introduce 3 direct link URLs provided by your server of choice:

(o) 1 for your artwork's thumbnail (which must be in a .JPG image format) with a max. 150x150 pixels resolution.
(o) 1 for your artwork's normal quality view (which can be in a .JPG, .GIF or .PNG image format) with a max.1080x1080 pixels resolution and 3.8 Mbytes of size.
Must be a JPG file.
(o) 1 for your artwork's full quality view (which can be in a .JPG, .GIF or .PNG image format, or an animation in the Flash -SWF- format) with no limit of resolution nor size.

:exclaim: Keep in mind that you MUST respect the formats/sizes/resolutions limits explained before for all your links to work;
:exclaim: Is also MANDATORY that all your URLs start with an https:// prefix, not an http:// one;

If all goes well, it will be saved and posted, showing up in a separated sub-section for EXTRAS at the Submissions tab for everyone to see on your gallery ^^!


As said before, submissions posted as Extras have their own sub-section, and this sadly makes them unable to be shared on Clubs/Proyects;
But don't worry, you can work around that by creating another "preview" regular submission that links to it, as in this example: old.y-gallery.net/view/3436/ ;
Just make sure that the contents of said preview go along with the Terms of Service of the main page (this might require some censoring/cropping) and then add the direct link to your Extra submission as part of its description ^^!


:abuse: DISCORD

DO NOT USE DISCORD'S ATTATCHMENTS AS DIRECT LINKS! Not only could your content be deleted, but Discord has a strict NO SHOTA policy for example, and content like that could get your channel or the Y!gallery channel removed and blacklisted from its platform; Discord is not an actual image hosting place and it shouldn't be used as such ^^u

Overall and other than that, you're welcome to use any site you can/want, as long as their ToS allow you to do so; but these've been already tested on Y!gallery:

:checked: IMGBOX.COM !

As their site description says, imgbox is a very fast and simple image hosting site;
They allow NSFW Content and you can easily set your account to remember that setting;
Its usage is very intuitive and they provide direct linking of images in the way exactly required for Extras!

After uploading your images, just click/tap to open any of them in a new window/tab and simply select to "copy URL" and then paste them in their respective required fields ^^!

:checked: DROPBOX.COM !

Dropbox allows NSFW content, since they can properly filter it as part of your private content and allow specific sharing of it;
There's a little catch at the time of converting those into direct links, but it's not impossible; here's the way you can turn your “shared” links into direct ones:

1. at Dropbox, select the image you wanna use and click/tap on its '…' menu button, then click/tap the “share” option;
2. on the new window, under the 'share a link instead' section, click/tap the “copy link” button at the bottom right;
3. you will get the message “link copied, allows viewing” with a URL like this: www.dropbox.com/s/5sjo····png?dl=0
4. to turn it into a direct link, just replace the 'www.dropbox.com' with 'dl.dropboxusercontent.com' and also remove the '?dl=0' ending;

:next: KEEP SHARING AND HAVE FUN :widesmile:

The problems with these kind of submissions won't be an issue in the 2.0 version, but for the time being, this is what we have, and although a bit bulky, it's still a good way to share all your artwork. A bonus is that your images will not require any kind of censoring at all. It's just a matter of filtering and respect for the enjoyment of all users. We hope this tutorial is helpful to you, and thank you very much for taking the time to read ^^!

:comment: If you know of any other free image hosting service with direct URL linking enabled that also allows NSFW content, let us know ^^!
