Hello Artfighters! I wrote this over the past few days with a lot of time and careful consideration because, after all this time, I think that’s what I owe you. The consequence of this is that it’s way too long, and I’m sorry about that, but if you’re concerned about donations at all, I’m hoping it will answer most of your questions.

I wanted to apologize for the huge delay in making this announcement. I know a lot of you have been asking for this for a long time, and I regret not taking more initiative to overcome the obstacles in my life, rather than allowing them to inhibit progress on this for so long. 

I know that the delay has caused a lot of feelings of frustration and mistrust, and may have given the impression that I was being intentionally non-transparent. I’ve never hidden this information on purpose, but I know my actions and lack of communication probably made it look that way. I’m truly sorry and embarrassed that it took me this long to do this.

I’m here now to attempt to make things right, as best I can. I’m going to address some common concerns regarding donations below. In the likely event that I failed to address everything today, please see the final section in this announcement to find out how to send me more related questions, concerns, and suggestions.

(Unintended) lack of transparency

The donations page was always meant to be the solution to being transparent about donations, but at some points in time it hasn’t been enough because it was too long between updates, or because some things weren’t clear enough. As contributors to the Art Fight, I know it can be frustrating to see old and confusing information. Again, it was never my intention to hide things from you, but there were times that I did so unintentionally. I’m sorry for my lack of diligence in keeping the page up to date, and for mistakes I’ve made in the clarity of information.

Carefully examining the finances to figure out exactly what our goals should be for the 2021 fight is on my to do list! I will let you guys know when I have the donations page updated with 2021 goals. You may have noticed that I’ve also reset the goal progress bar. Even though I didn’t have an announcement about it ready at the time, I didn’t want to continue leaving it stagnant. I guessed on the base amount for the goal just so we could have a moving progress bar, but this goal is very temporary and is almost certain to change. For future years, I intend to have budget estimations ready before the fight ends so as to avoid confusion with old information being displayed.

For now, I’ve edited the donations page in an attempt to improve transparency with the following:
 - added info to reflect that the provided information is old and applies to the 2020 fight
 - indicated which tier we reached for the 2020 fight
 - added a statement to let people know to expect 2021 goals when I’m able to figure those out
 - corrected a mistake in the code where the date was off in the sponsor box on the right
 - changed the “2019 - 2020” wording that the bottom of each page to say “2020 - 2021” because I hadn’t realized until now I’d forgotten to do that
 - gave numbers to the FAQ questions and updated questions 2 and 4 to be more clear on requirements for banner rewards

Where did the money go?


Given that I'm not an accountant, the numbers have admittedly always been approximations. The short answer to this question is: Taxes and PayPal fees, keeping up with all the bills for servers and other things to help keep the site up and running, and each year I pay for the official site artwork.

The exception to this is the funds that went unused from the extended period of time that I had unexpectedly developed a severe health condition (not related to the pandemic). I regret not being able to properly work on Art Fight past the symptoms, and I’m sorry for allowing that to contribute to all of this. 

During the time I was not working on Art Fight, due to my illness, I didn’t do anything with the money, besides paying Art Fight bills. It remained either in PayPal or in the Art Fight bank account, and it will be carried over for future use for expenses listed on the donations page. If anyone was worried about me taking the money and running, I promise you that never did and never will happen. I care far too deeply about you, the community, and Art Fight itself to do that, but I know that that is something that may have occurred to some of you, so hopefully this will be of some reassurance.

I’ve realized that Art Fight is becoming so big that it’s growing beyond the scope of a part-time, purely volunteer passion project. I’m absolutely still very passionate about it, but Art Fight’s growth has begun to require a lot more attention and time than a passion project meant for spare time. The wording from the donations page, “dedicated Art Fight site development” from 2019 I believe, which then changed to “x hours of paid site development”, were a couple first attempts at a response to the situation. Looking back, I think that the language I used was a mistake: I still very much have to rely on volunteers to help with the site, and there’s nowhere near enough revenue to pay them, however much I’d love to do so. The way I worded things may have falsely implied that I was paying all of the other coders, and that the amount of money received by Art Fight would be directly proportional to new (visible) features on the site that directly benefited users.

I believe the biggest contributing factors to this was that I’ve never been even close to being in charge of something this big before, as well as the fear of backlash for potentially using extra donations to allow myself to give even more of my time to Art Fight than I was previously able to. My inexperience at being stuck in the weird in-between spot of a passion project becoming something bigger, and not really knowing how to handle that, made things difficult. I recognize that I made a lot of mistakes due to this. I’m sure I’m going to make a lot more as I continue to learn and grow alongside Art Fight, but I will at least be working on getting better at owning up to such mistakes and being faster at making them right as best I can.

As Art Fight grows, I really do want to look into possibly having employees so that I can pay some of the wonderful people on staff for their hard work. I’ve learned that having employees is something that is far more complicated than I had imagined, but I do plan on looking into it. I do think, however, that we will always need to rely on the lovely moderators, as most sites do, to help out in the community and make things an enjoyable experience for users. And for now, I will also be relying on the talented volunteer coders, designer, etc. for a lot of the progress.

Making donation rewards happen more quickly


I’m really sorry for the delays when it comes to receiving donation rewards. The plan is to make donations fully automated in the future so that this won’t be a problem! We’ll be connecting the site database with PayPal transactions (or switch to a different service if PayPal decides to not play nice) as well as have a bot for discord rewards. Without the need to manually give out rewards, this should ensure that they are given out by the system promptly!

One suggestion was to allow more than one person handle donations. I agree with this completely that it would be better for user experience to do this. However, now that I am more consistently able to work on Art Fight again, I think that time would be better spent researching and implementing automated donation rewards. Automation of this process is already the end goal, and prevents putting even more work on admins when I could be working to make the system better instead.

Currently, the system allowing you to change your username without contacting a mod is almost ready to go! This will give everyone one username change chance that can be used at any time. Extra chances will be given out when you donate. For now these extras will be given manually, like the rest of the donations rewards, but this will be integrated into the automated system when that becomes ready to go.



Lack of (visible) coding progress


There has been some concern about not seeing coding progress. The answer comes in two parts, both of which are pretty boring: I fell ill for a long amount of time starting in 2019, which hindered a lot of progress during that time. The second part is that there’s a lot of work that has to be done behind the scenes. A lot of coding (and other tech stuff) has to do with version updates and optimizations for the code base and server software, among other things that you shouldn’t actually notice (if we do it right) but also unfortunately takes up coder resources. 

In order to keep you updated on the latest coding progress, we’re planning on implementing a simple on-site changelog that you can check. You may remember the site had a changelog in the past, but it was not used beyond 2016. The new on-site changelog, when implemented, will be easier to read and regularly updated by staff. When the update is mostly behind the scenes, we may be less detailed about changes, but we do intend to inform you when things are being worked on to help keep the site running.

Additional FAQ


I hope this has finally cleared some things up for you all! I’m expecting to have not remembered to include everything that you wanted to know, so I’m planning on doing a follow-up announcement with some FAQ that results from this announcement. Please fill out this form if you have feedback. I’ll be giving you all a week (until December 3rd) to ask questions. Give me a few days to compile and answer them, and then I’ll post another announcement with the answers to the most frequent (and donations-relevant) questions.

Note: this doesn’t mean you can’t ask questions after that, it just means your questions wouldn’t have a chance to appear in the follow-up announcement.

You might have noticed the attack and team achievements were automated this year. If you don't have a certain badge, don't panic! There will be scheduled maintenance to make sure everyone is up to date. 
Also, we're still in the process of making the winner badge, traitor badge, loyalty badge, etc for this year. We'll announce when we are finished with them.



Answers to Common Questions

General
The site will remain up and be available for viewing just like before, just without the ability to attack.
If you’d like to continue attacking others, a good alternative is an art trade conducted via PM here, our Discord, or other platform of your choice.

Minigames 2020-2021
In a few weeks, the Discord sever will start up a thing called Minigames. Minigames are art related games that you can play when Art Fight isn't active. We've currently got 5 different minigames. It'll be announced when they start up.

Here's a preview of some of the games:


Give some art and get some art! Claim a spot by posting a character or characters you would like drawn, then draw the character the person above you posted!


Design a character and auction it off for free through a guessing game! Adopts are encouraged to be based on a theme (a food, bath bomb, song, ect), whoever guesses the category right gets the adopt!


Draw your or your friends' characters using the given prompt! Prompts change the 1st and 15th of every month and range in theme from palette prompts to drawing your characters doing specific activities.




If you're interested, join the Discord Server for more information!

Reports on attack ratings will be temporarily disabled after 4PM MDT. If you wish to report attacks for reasons not involving ratings, (i.e. Harassment, tracing, etc.) please report the User’s profile and describe the problem accurately in the report. Once again thank you all for your help!



I apologize about the sudden site slowness yesterday and today. Due to this, the event will be ending August 11th at 7pm MDT (Art Fight time). Here's a countdown timer if you need it
After the event ends, the moderators will spend a few days responding to attacks and double checking things. The official newspost will be posted after that with the winning team. 

We appreciate the patience this last month. We hope you've all had a great fight!

Art Fight 2020 Extension & Updates





Hi everyone! The team hopes you've been enjoying the fight so far! 

We've got a few updates and reminders for you all. 

Please read below for more information.




Art Fight 2020 Extension

You may have noticed that the site was slow for a few days after the event started. We apologize about the inconvenience it may have caused you all. 
Due to the site being inaccessible for a few days, we've made the decision to extend the fight until August 10th, 2020 12:00PM MDT.  The site wasn't down for that long, but we wanted to surprise you all with a longer extension this year. We hope you all enjoy the extra time! 

Known Site Issues
Art Fight should be running pretty smooth now, with the exception of an error you may get on the front page, and the statistics page being temporarily inaccurate. There may be some slow patches, but it should be generally stable!

Rating Update - Animation Balancing, Simple Characters & Minimal Form
Our rating system isn't perfect, so we've made some important changes to it for the rest of the fight that we think you'll like!
Animation

On July 4th, we recently balanced animation points, since animation was giving a bit more points than intended. All attacks uploaded after that have the intended amount.

Simple Characters & Minimal Form

There has been some controversy surrounding the Simple Shaped Character size rating. We've heard your concerns, and are implementing a new size rating called Minimal Form. 

Sometimes referred to as 'blobs', these doodle-like characters are drawn with minimum effort. They generally feature singular simple shapes or silhouettes. Characters that can be drawn in only a few strokes or lines can fall into this category.

The team will be updating existing attacks we deem fit with this rating. We'll also be doing some point recalculations too, so you may notice some point changes! 
We urge you to all check out the new rating description by clicking here.




Art Fight 2020 Questions
Here's some general information for newbies to help aid them in navigating the site!

Please be reminded that our Moderators are always available for general Art Fight questions, and our Adminstrators are available for anything a Moderator can't answer!
If you haven’t already, we also encourage you to join the Discord server here! Discord is one of the fastest ways to get contact with moderators and the latest information regarding the site. 




How do I get sorted?

Now that the event has officially started, you can click “Current Event” in the upper right hand corner to check it out. Once there, you can go ahead and get sorted into a team. Team sorting is done manually to help prevent teams from being flooded with abandoned and inactive accounts. Which team you get sorted is mostly based on how many users are on the teams already, to help make sure that the user count is balanced and each team has an equal chance based on member count.

How do I attack?
Once you’ve been sorted into one of the two teams, you are then able to click the Submit button in the navbar and there should now be “Attack!”.

What is rating?
You may notice a Rate Attacks option under Browse. Here, you can rate attacks that have been submitted, giving them a small addition to their points if you upvote them. This is not a required part of gameplay! It’s just if you want to take part in it.

You also do not need to be on a team to rate! Spectators, if you want to have a little part in the game too, now’s your chance!

Is friendly fire a thing? What is it?
Friendly fire in Art Fight means to attack someone on the same team as opposed to attacking someone on the opposite team, and it most definitely is a thing! You’d attack them just like you would anybody else. However, since the goal is to attack people on the other team, friendly fire will not count for points.

Art Fight 2020 Theme Reveal and Early Bird Registration



Hello everyone, are you excited for Art Fight yet? You should be, because we have some nice surprises coming up!

Theme Reveal
It’s become a tradition to animate a short video revealing the theme. This year, we revealed the 2020 Art Fight theme on stream. If you missed the stream, find the video here! We chose to spice things up this year and also incorporated a summer/autumn kind of feeling to the themes. We hope you like them! 

Early Bird Registration - Pick your team!
Yes, as we stated before, you will be able to pick your team early by clicking on this google form and following the instructions. Please be aware that you won’t get on your team immediately, it will take some time to process. The form will close before July 1st. 

If you want to get further updates, make sure you join our Discord Server to get fast announcements. As well, check out our Twitter

Maturity Filters Update
Upon feedback from you, we’ll be slightly revamping the maturity filters and their rules. You’ll see an announcement for that later on! 

Ratings Update 
We’re proud to announce that the rating system got a big update! You’ll see a variety of new options when rating an attack. Please be sure to look over the Attack Guide before making an attack to see where your art may fall!

Here are some of the changes made for this year:


  • There is a new overarching Attack Type section, which includes "Drawing", "3D Modeling" and "Crafts!"  These will offer different options in the drop down menu, and will have relevant scorings.

  • The new Craft category allows you to chose from: Textile, Clay, Heavy-Metal Work, Food Art, Bead Work, and Paper Craft. 

  • The new 3D Modeling category lets you choose from Model or Sculpt, Texture types, and Lighting types.

  • Animation now has two parts for scoring. The length, and technique. Technique allows you to choose between Frame-By-Frame, Tweening/Stop-Motion, and 3D animation. 

  • There is a new Polish check-mark. This allows you to give your attack bonus points for any extra effort you may have put into your piece! 

  • Single-Tone Shading and Multi-Tone Shading have been combined into one Fully-Shaded category. 

  • Simple Scene and Complex Scene have been combined into one Scene category. 

  • Painting has been moved from the Finish category to the Coloring category.



  • Point numbers have been rebalanced all around!


Dark Mode
As you may have noticed, we now have a dark theme available! We did switch everyone to this theme temporarily, but you're more than welcome to change back to light theme here. 



We hope you are as excited as we are for Art Fight 2020! Let’s make this a good year. 

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Art Fight 2020 Start Date and Theme Reveal





That event you're waiting for is happening soon...


As always, Art Fight 2020 will be starting on July 1st at 12:00 pm US Mountain time. Make sure you prepare yourself by updating your characters and bookmarking some characters early! Like last year, there will be an option to choose your team before the fight, after the theme reveal!


On June 20th at 12:00 pm US Mountain time, we will be going live on Twitch, streaming the official Art Fight 2020 theme reveal animation!


After the reveal, we will release a google form which will allow you to pick your team. On the 1st, you’ll automatically be placed on that team. The advantage to registering early is that you get to pick your team. If you don’t, you'll be placed on your team the traditional way — randomly!


Additional info will be released on the 20th. Make sure to follow our Twitter for more details about the form.

Follow our Twitch to get a notification when we're live!



Other Updates...




New Moderators

We’d like to welcome some of our new moderators joining us this year! Please give a big welcome to leafjelly, luphorics, spacenerdy, sabletide, moesoup, bearlissa, Chalk, cyxxie, coldpressedhoney, and @spottedfang! We will be having more faces join us throughout the fight as well. 

Filters Update
The maturity filters were updated for 2020! There were some small changes to the rules, but gore, body horror, sensitive content have all received art examples. We hope this will help users better understand how our filters work with the provided examples! 
You can look through each section here.

Rules Update
We’ve made some changes to the rules for Art Fight 2020! We recommend you all read through them as there were some big changes made. 
Please take a moment to read them!

Username Changes Reminder
Please note that we will not be taking username change requests during the event (July 1st - August 1st) to prevent strain on moderators. If you would like to change your username, you still have about a month to do so. See the contact page for more information on how to change your name. 

Supporters (contributing donations of $5+) are exempt from this rule.

Discord Server Changes
As of June 15th, the minigames on the Art Fight Discord will be closing down due to Art Fight. Just like last year, you will still be able to edit your finished claims, so don’t worry about rushing to finish. Users will continue to receive the timeout role if they do not complete their claims within two weeks. 

The Discord voice-chats will also be closing for the duration of Art Fight due to moderation being shifted primarily to the event. They will open some time after the fight. VIP voice-chats will remain up during the event.  We have also removed the Dream vs Nightmare team roles to prepare for the new roles, and you’ll notice a new icon in celebration of Pride Month, also! 

If you haven’t already, you can join the Discord server here! Discord is one of the fastest ways to get contact with moderators and the latest information regarding the site.



2019 Achievements

You should have received a notification about them already, but the 2019 achievements are now complete, and here they are in all their glory!





Dream, Nightmare, Traitor, Dream Loyal, Nightmare Loyal, 2019 Winner


The achievements are done by our amazing lead artist Axel. Give him a follow! 
Posted by Rainy on 22 April 2020 03:40:04 PM (Edited by Rainy 8 months ago)

Front Page Revamp

 
With Art Fight around the corner, we've been making some changes to the front page. One improvement we've made is by adding links to essential pages, such as the about page and the guides. We hope this will make things easier to find! We have also added recent characters, random characters, and random attacks to the front page! 
This is just the beginning, and these changes aren't final! We'll be working on styling the front page to make it look more visually appealing in the upcoming weeks, and have some cool donation perks in development for our supporters! 

We hope you'll enjoy these changes! 

Art Fight Start Date

 
Art Fight will be starting on July 1st, 2020, as normal.

We have gotten several inquires about Art Fight starting early for those in quarantine. Unfortunately, Art Fight will not start early. A lot of work gets put into each year to make an early release not possible, and this includes the art assets and the theme reveal that are done just for the 2020 Art Fight. Alongside that, we have some adjustments to make to the rules and guidelines to better your experience! However, we do have some awesome Art Minigames on our Discord that will be active until Art Fight begins.

DREAM VS NIGHTMARE...

CONGRATS TEAM NIGHTMARE


Final Score...

2,029,075 vs 2,044,246


Attacks
The attack that did the most damage, with the most amount of characters from the opposing team is "wormy night" by  sunminny with a whooping 16,651 points, featuring......3296 characters?!
This is a mass attack of a worm character based off the painting "Starry Night". What a unique take! 



This attack should rank among your top ten betrayals. Intended to raise nearly 7k points, at the last minute Milkbomby decided to switch to team Dream and friendly-fire Takaia, resulting in the attack receiving no points. What a traitor!

Achievements

You might have noticed the attack and team achievements were automated this year. If you don't have a certain badge, don't panic! There will be scheduled maintenance to make sure everyone is up to date. 
Also, we're still in the process of making the winner badge, traitor badge, loyalty badge, etc. We'll announce when we are finished with them.



Answers to Common Questions
The site will remain up and be available for viewing just like before, just without the ability to attack.In a few weeks, the Discord start up a thing called Minigames. Minigames are art related games that you can play when Art Fight isn't active. We've currently got 5 different minigames. It'll be announced when they start up!If you’d like to continue attacking others, a good alternative is an art trade conducted via PM here, our Discord, or other platform of your choice.We are still accepting donations! Any donations made during the time between fights will be put towards your donation total for the upcoming fight.
