It also means if we get a new creator we can simply update the OP to showcase them, which only takes a second. Maybe a moderator or staff member starts it, that way we won't have to worry as much about update inactivity.
I think everyone would really love it if V4 was more organized, even if it takes some more effort it'll be highly appreciated because at the end of the day you want your renders to reach people. I find the "hunt" for renders in this thread quite fun tbh, but I'd rather have them in one big pile

Google drive could work well however if you had a folder per worker that would take a lot of time to set up (same for each alt dropbox etc) not sure what the solution is, but agree it would be easier to see all the alts for workers together and find those without any.

Perhaps the answer is just a communal drive/dropbox with each re-render maker having their own folder to keep updated in their own way?

That's why I wanted to bring it up early, so we have time to prepare and spread out the time-consuming work of getting everything in decent order. Because all it takes is time.

I'm not sure if that was what DIG was suggesting, and you can just download the whole thing if you want to search for specific workers.

This is definitely another way we could do it, but I want to 100% remove the responsibility from a single creator. There were times in this thread where people were complaining about the lack of updates to the dropbox in the OP, and while they weren't actually attempting to attack J-Silver personally, that's what they were doing since that's who has the dropbox.

So that's why I suggested having a moderator or something make next game's thread and be tasked only with updating the links. That way if I (for example) don't update my render database then I'll be the one and only person getting flak, which means to avoid that I'll put them in my database at the same time I showcase them in the thread, bada bing bada boom, everything's streamlined.

But a communal one could also work I guess, but I'd also want to see a list of creators in the OP.

I agree that it would be nice to see it out of one creator's hands. I think if the original post is made by a moderator (or even a community member who has been around for a long time and will continue to be around) and that first page is a running list of creators with links to a drop box or a drive or whatever -- so that way people can access just the specific artists they want, but ccan still browse the thread for artists updates. It would allow people to better keep track of their artists if they miss a few posts, and would allow each artist to have their own drop box folder that they update as they want and update the thread.

It is important to me that there is a list of creators so that the proper people are getting credit for their work. I'd also love to see the same thing for belts and logos -- if there is one bigger thread and then the individuals who create are all linked to within there.

If a moderator doesn't want to do it i could do it, i am active here and will probably stay a while longer. And i look into the thread every day.

It would be very nice to have a coordinated effort for the renders in a centralized area where there is a huge DL where every rerender is named. Cherrypicking every render takes ages.

Here's a thought...Starting with 2020, what if the render artists each make their own threads for their own work. This would allow them to catalog their work separately from the rest of the artists. The opening thread could serve an an index or table of contents.

In turn, we could pin an index thread of all the different artists threads.

I think this might be a pretty efficient way and is more in line with how diary writers and mod makers share their work with the community.

I think that's the same as searching a single big thread for each render. It's just searching a lot of smaller threads for each render.

I'd be happy to link to my imgur folder or a dropbox, whichever is easier.

Eh... that's going backwards in my opinion. I'm fine with people making their own threads and stuff but I'd assume most of the render creators ITT are like me and like the collective access where the tide is rising all of our ships (or whatever the metaphor is).

Been doing this for almost a decade now and I figure it's time for me to do my first rerender of a C-Verse icon. Knock on wood.

How about using The Curator account and setting up a Curator Gmail account and drive in conjunction with the thread... This could help make sure no one single user needs to keep things up to date. When an artist posts a new image, they can add it to the index via the Curator account and upload it to the open drive.

(For those not aware, the Curator account belongs to no one individual and many people on GDS share the password to allow many people to keep various indexes up to date).

The downside is that it would require artists to login multiple accounts to post...and I'd have to create obstacles for them to share their work.
