We've discussed this ad nausaeum. Welcome to the Internet. Do you make covers using poster art from web sites? How do you think the people who made those posters feel about you doing that? Yes, we don't sell our stuff here. Still we use stuff from others without paying. If it's online, it's available.

 

I explained in another post how I stopped CoverDude from grabbing my stuff from here. They haven't done it again in months. I outed them on FaceBook & Twitter by posting links to covers I'd done, pointing out that I include a logo on them unique to me that they don't even bother to remove. I only left those posts up for about 5 minutes. Two days later they stopped grabbing my stuff. If you want them to stop, try that.


I just look at the pictures.

Hi its about time, you cracked down. i have been a member here for some years now and have seen a lot of crap covers. Sometimes i upload customs, but most of the time i upload originals.

I do not have a problem with this at all.

The staff on this site do a good job and i would hate to see it close.

I am having a problem trying to upload covers.

I attach the cover as I have for a long time now and then I am told that I must upload at least one image.

I have emailed the image to myself and opened it successfully, so can you tell me if there is a problem with the site or how can I rectify this

Same problem here.

Look at the main community page. Tim (Admin) is working on the problem. EVERYONE is having the same problem. It will get fixed. Meanwhile, store up your uploads. The poor moderators are all gonna feel like one-armed paper hangers, once this gets resolved.


I just look at the pictures.

Uploads are not working right now.  Our IT team is working on the problem.  We hope to have an update to the servers shortly that will fix the problem.

For almost two weeks now I have been unable to download any new covers.  Is this because of the uploading problem or what?

Some downloading appears to be inconsistent, due to the server problems causing the upload outage. When you download, you are directed to any one of several servers. You can see which one you were sent to at the very bottom of the screen. If you try to download something & it fails, all you can do is try again later & hope you get sent to a server that has what you want. There is no way for you, or anyone else, to control this. Just keep trying. It will be fixed, in time.

Hello there,
I want soon upload many Covers, if the Upload Problem is fixed. Maybe you can attach additional buttons for booklets on the upload page. This would greatly improve the quality of the page.
My English is rather poor, but i hope you understand what i mean.
In the upper right corner i can select a Language, but unfortunately it does not work.
Is Your Support in English only?
Best Regards

TO ALL FreeCovers Uploaders:

The staff is currently reworking our Uploading Rules and they WILL affect ALL the uploaders. We will be introducing new size requirements and really cracking down on current rules - as we have been slacking.

The NEW MINIMUM ALLOWABLE size for ALL uploads WILL be 200dpi - but the standard we would like to see is 300dpi. There is really NO reason for any uploads to be over 300pdi.

For ALL standard Clamshell cases for DVD Movies, Music DVD, Anime, HD (if we get any more), TV Series, GameCube, PC Apps & Games, PS1, PS2, XBox & XBox360:
200dpi - 2160 x 1450
300dpi - 3240 x 2175

For Blu-Ray:
200dpi - 2075 x 1160
300dpi - 3115 x 1745

For PS3:
200dpi - 2145 x 1170
300dpi - 3220 x 1760

PSP (Playstation Portable):
200dpi - 1645 x 1320
300dpi - 2470 x 1980

Nintendo Wii:
200dpi - 2150 x 1435
300dpi - 3225 x 2155

NintendoDS:
200dpi - 2140 x 910
300dpi - 3210 x 1370

VHS:
200dpi - 2020 x 1560
300dpi - 3030 x 2340

All standard Jewel cases for Music CD, PC Apps & Games, Playstation and VCD - along with CD & DVD Labels:
200dpi - 840 x 840
300dpi - 1260 x 1260

The current rules that we have had for many years WILL be enforced to the fullest.

ALL covers WILL be presented in the landscape format - any covers uploaded in the portrait format will automatically be denied.

ALL covers will be straight - if the cover is crocked to a noticeable degree it will automatically be denied.

ALL spines must be flattened at flat as you can - ANY covers with noticeably creased spines will automatically be denied.

ALL covers must be closely and neatly cropped. If a cover is too under or overly cropped - they will automatically be denied.

ALL custom covers MUST be denoted as CUSTOM. ALSO note for CUSTOM labels - ALL CUSTOM DISC LABELS ARE TO BE ROUND - we will no longer accept a SQUARE label - as discs are round - this is not an unusual request.

ALL Non-English language covers NEED to be identified - if none of the staff can identify the language of the cover - it will be denied.

When titling any upload - PLEASE do not use ALL-CAPS. PLEASE use both Upper and lower case letters. For movie covers - PLEASE include the Title, Year, Language (ONLY when Non-English) and Region Code. It is the uploaders responsibility to correctly title their uploads to be site ready - not the staffs - we are spending way too time editing titles before we can approve the covers.

Uploaders need to keep a tab on their PMs (Personal Messages) - as if and when we have an issue with your uploads - we will PM you and explain the issue. If we have to PM an uploader 3 times for the SAME infraction - and they continue doing that same infraction - their incorrect uploads will automatically be denied.

We do allow tagging covers here - but PLEASE keep the tags small, unobtrusive to the cover design and kept to the backs of the covers. NO large stickers, e-mail addresses, phone numbers, watermarks or the words 'copyright materials' are allowed on the fronts or backs of ANY covers. User names are OK but only on the backs - and they are to be kept small and unobtrusive. NO tags are allowed at all on the 'printable' portion of the CD or Disc labels - PLEASE keep the tag to the corners. If it gets to where we run into a problem with excessive tagging - then tagging will no longer be allowed on this site.

AS this is kinda a 'Heads Up' for ALL you uploaders - you might want to get started working with the new size allowable.

ANY and ALL suggestions from uploaders are appreciated - as we get closer to hammering out our new uploading rules.

Thank You
The FreeCovers Moderating Team smile.gif
