    OPEN BATTLE:: Roll Canvas Infinity

    Welcome to the...
    RollCanvasInfinity
    (as discussed here)

    Introduction:
    RollCanvasInfinity is an endless 'Rollcanvas' style Photoshop battle. There is no long waiting periods, disappearing users will not effect turnaround time, and all anyone needs to do to contribute is simply put their hand up before submitting.

    Basic Rules:
    -Your submissions must be 650 px in length, and 400 px in height.
    -You must submit your volleys as JPG (JPEG). To level the playing field, please set the quality to '10'.
    -Submitting 'leave' images will not be necessary, simply post the full image in all it's glory in this thread.
    -Your submission must be a right-side continuation of the last image posted. Please see other Rollcanvas threads to see how it's done.
    -The intention is to connect all of the different users images to create one long mural image which everyone can say they have submitted to.
    -Images containing sharp cuts in continuity are allowed, but discouraged. Please make the transition between your volley and the previous volley as smooth as possible.

    Thread/Submission Rules:
    -Your submissions must be attached to this thread. Discussion inside this thread is also welcome.
    -Before you contribute, submit a 'heads-up' post to indicate that you are about to create a volley. Refresh the page (to ensure a double-post did not occur), and if you were the first to inform the others that you are about to create a volley, then you are now free to do so.
    -If you do not submit a volley within 10 hours since your 'heads-up' post, then your spot is up for grabs, regardless of how half-way finished your volley is. If you require extra hours, please post the request in the thread indicating that you need more time (no more than a few hours). Please only resort to requesting more time if absolutely necessary.
    -This thread is user-moderated. If a contributor submits in an incorrect format or resolution, please message the contributor and ask him/her to resubmit the image correctly.

    Notes:
    Please note that this is an 'open' battle, with no central management of any kind. That said, there is no 'big reveal' at the end. One kind user may decide to build a website dedicated to the RollCanvasInfinity to allow viewers to see the whole canvas in its seamless glory. That said, and since there is no central management, users are encouraged to save copies of all of the volleys in this thread on their hard-drives so that if one day a website is created, someone will have the series of images.

    The starting image will be attached as the next post. Could some skilled playah's take the next few turns, just to show the newbies how its done?

    Opening volley

    Remember, imagine that your image will be placed seamlessly next to this image on the right hand side.

    Sweet job waste. Is someone going to maintain a page which has all of these together side by side? The template from the older ones should be around somewhere.

    Thats up to our lovely contestants to decide, dric. Myself, I'm too busy... I'll probably end up checking this thread once every few months...

    Also, ta for the props... using 3D primarily as a volley is somewhat experimental for me..

    Hi Jujo

    Could you not request a turn just before you are about to start drawing up your volley (after work)? The chances of someone jumping in within the next four hours are pretty slim, and even if they do you won't need to wait long until their finished.

    The idea of declaring turns immediatly before making a volley is to keep 'pause' times to an *absolute* minimum. Sorry to dissapoint Jujo...

    Hi Squid

    Not sure what the problem is. Have another go uploading, and if still doesnt come up, just e-mail the image to me and I'll host it for you.

    Needless to say, we're on standby until squids image is up...

    Remember everyone: user moderation means everyone helps eachother to achieve the best end results, such as offering to host each others images if nessisary to avoid waiting times...

    The images uploaded to the FK server must be approved by Planet first. He goes through and check's them everyday.

    Damn, that approval time is going to seriously damage the volley return speed. I don't mean to complain about this service which is provided for free by FK, but the main reason of having this thread is so that people can jump in whenever they like and contribute to something huge and collaborative. Waiting an entire day for images to approve will mean that only one submission is allowed per day.

    Maybe approved arena participants can avoid this waiting time and have some kind of instant approval?

    a mod would have to fix the url (assuming it's not within the hour or so permitted editing time)

    host our own images? a lot of us dont have server space. or am I missing something?

    and carly's right. post editing has become something of a problem ever since that new 'no edits after an hour' rule.
