Hi there,
This is my first post on the forums as I just registered to ask gold members a question cause I'm thinking of becoming one, but I need to know something first.

I came to this site to get good looking covers for my series and I started with the "Friends" series and I found what I want, for instance: http://www.freecover...74e5/front.html

Then, I found this one:
-Link Removed- And as you can see (download the big image) it has pretty good quality, the only downside to it, is the german language.

My first question is, does the gold member uncompressed cover of freecovers.net has that same quality or alike? If possible, could someone post like a 200x200 crop of the original 100% sized uncompressed cover just so I take a look?

Now, another series, "LOST"...
On the same site (cover-paradies.to) I also found this large and great quality covers in english:
-Links Removed-
I'm wondering, why a site like freecovers, don't have this quality covers? I didn't find them, can anyone with access to the advanced search see if they can find them? I'm asking this, because I'm looking for a cover in the same type for season 3, all green, with great quality and resolution in english, but I can't find it and I wanted to know if the freecovers.net has it or not.

Hi there,

First off, welcome to freecovers.

The difference between the 'free' and gold accounts is that with the free account you can download all the covers, but only at a certain maximum resolution (not sure exactly what this is). The gold account will give you access to download covers as they were uploaded to us, as well as doing away with those annoying adverts smile.gif If the 'gold' covers and the 'free' covers are the same resolution, then this is because the uploaded image is smaller than our minimum gold standard resolution. Another benefit of the gold account is that you can make requests for covers immediately, without having to reach a minimum post count

All of the covers on the site are donated by the members themselves, if we don't have a cover, it's because no-one has uploaded it to us.

All covers that are uploaded are checked by Freecovers staff and any that do not meet our strict criteria are rejected.

Hope that helps, but if you have any other questions, have a look at the FAQ - it should answer most of your queries
Remember the Golden rule. To request covers you need to have made 10 or more posts, or have subscribed to a gold account

Thank you, but everything you said I've already read on the FAQ tongue.gif

I'm still missing the answer to my first question, the quality of the uncompressed cover of Friends (the link I posted). I can't see the real quality because I'm not a gold member, I just want to have a sneak peek (thus the crop) of the quality so I can decide to upgrade or not!

1) There IS NOT a 10 post requirement for downloading - That rule is for requesting covers.

2) NO - You do not have to be a Gold member to submit covers. Any and all members may submit cover - just no porn PLEASE.

3) NO - you are not expected or required to upload covers at all - that is up to YOU.

I hope that explains what you wanted to know.
ENJOY the site.

We currently do not have a 'point' system here - we do have an 'Elite' membership that is earned by uploading at least 500 high quality covers.

"membership that is earned by uploading at least 500 high quality covers."

And darn, that is one heck of a lot of covers when you are putting them together yourself . !!!! :taz:
