    Brief overview of how the credit system works:

    We don't have a prove yourself forum, let me give you a brief description of how our system works:

    You upload covers/labels/hires-art etc... All uploads 300dpi. Example DVD Cover 3240 X 2175 @ 300dpi. See size link at the bottom of this page for all size requirements. Indicate in description if its a scan or a custom. Also put your ID (name) in the Artist block or in the Comment block.

    It goes through an approval process (brief, we just look to make sure its OK on (Duplicate/Size/Quality) then we move it to the proper category.

    From there, when your cover is downloaded, your are instantly credited .3 credits per unique download. This might not sound like a lot, but good "newer" covers will see between 30 and 60 downloads in a week on "hotter" covers.

    So if you have 10 uploads in a month that are things people are looking for, you'll likely get 50-100 credits per month. And the more you have on the site, the more earning potential you have. The sooner it gets there, the better chance someone else wont have uploaded it already (if its posted somewhere else) as well.

    Once you get a feel for the system, and we don't feel like we need to moderate you anymore, we'll move you to a designer group, and you can bypass the approval process.

    With the new upload feature, you can select multiple things to upload at once. After clicking on select files to upload, you can use the ctrl + mouse click to highlight multiple items, then click OK when ready. The up-loader will begin to process all the covers you selected. Then click upload/submit.

    Please feel free to ask questions if you have them.
