thanks for the helpfull information, cleared up a few issues my end of things as well :3

Glad to help

This is useful information to whom it may apply to.

Enjoy life.

Hopefully it answers questions and stops future misunderstandings.

ty not saying u sould scout me but could u just check out my art

I did, its pretty bad.

About as handy as something that isn't very handy

So like a prosthetic hand made of mashed potatoes?

Tom fucked up scouting when he reset it. Its really useless..

Care to elaborate?

A bit off-topic, but didn't you make a sketch involving a midget having sex with a mentally handicapped person?

If that was you, I think you should upload it to the art portal.

yeah, not really something i want on my portal page, but maybe sometime ill feel whack and go for it anyway with the rest of the porn thread stuff.

Great guide. That guide perfectly explained the mechanics of scouting. I'll have to follow this guide...

And there ya go, scout away good sir.

Ugh, I've been pruned twice. It was when the art portal first came into existance, too.

Nice handy-dandy guide though, it should be beneficial to all the curious users out there. Keep us updated!

This guide did not cover the few instances in the past where the art portal was reset for various reasons, because those sort of events are not excepted to happen again.

Thanks for the scout!

I was kinda hoping after getting scouted, all my work would automatically show up on the first page of the Art Portal, but that doesn't seem to be how it works. Ah well, I'm scouted :D

Nope, the portal runs by date submitted by default, but you can always change the sorting methods.

Man, I need advice on scouting. Oh, I know! Of course! I'll go straight to this 'onery' guy's page! Despite the fact I don't know who he is, or care, he's sure to have a one-in-a-million chance of having a handy dandy scouting guide for me!
Whaddya know! He does!
How fortunate I was!

I dont know how to scout, and the questions I have aren't in the rules and I don't want to read through the whole art portal Q&A thread, I know I'll ask a forum mod, they should know. What the forum mod called me a dickwhistle and told be to ask an ART MOD? Well, I'll be, there are art mods, and this ornery guy is one of them? Who woulda thunk it? And look he has a guide right there instead of clogging a thread with this and questions pertaining to it.

Nice guide! Though the scout system doesn't seem really fair. I'm still waiting to get scouted. Check out my submissions if you want. I like traditional art. :)

By my standards you arent good enough, however someone else might like your work, keep making more and getting better and someone might notice you.

Thanks for the scout sir ornery! You are both a gentleman and a scholar! :P

Why thank you.

thanks man! this helps a lot!!

Any time

Thanks a lot^^


nice guide man it cleared up a lot of things to me, thanks.
one question:
i have just one drawing so i'm not scoutable yet (its marked as public) will it apear in the unscouted section or i have to be scoutable for my work to apear there?
just curious

You wont appear in the unscouted section until you have at least 4 pieces. Even if they arent marked public, all you need is 4 pieces to show up in the scouted section as of now. However if you have more than 4 pieces, but not at least 4 public pieces people can see you there, but wont have the actual option to scout you.

y not keep some of the bad arts to show the progress of improvements to where the artist see now

keeping one or two bad pieces is fine, especially as non-public works, but having the bulk of your stuff being crap isnt good. Also keeping really bad stuff makes the mods suspicious of your really good work, because a huge discrepancy between works is normally a sign of theft.

well cause i first start of with ms paint, which i put non-public, then i put in scaned work, which i also put in non-public, then i use an online paint that i put in public, o n should i announce non-public or public arts of mine in the commentary

You dont have too, mods can see it, and other users will know the difference once you are scouted. I would hold off on bad pieces until you have a large collection of good pieces and are scouted. Once scouted you can submit as much as you want and just keep the bad ones private and it wont hurt you.

Thank goodness someone left a detailed enough post about this scouting thing :| thanks .

Yeah, too many people seemed confused about it, its not that difficult a concept once you get the hang of it.

Thanks for the guide, is there a delay between someone scouting you and the PM popping up? A friend in newgrounds said he scouted me, but so far nothing happened. Do you need to be scouted by more than one user? is there a mod approval?

Thanks anyway for the guide and hopefully, for you reply.

Hmm, must be a glitch, are you 100% sure that he did and isnt just lying to you? There normally isnt a delay, and there is no limit of people who have to send you a request, nor is there mod approval. If you can gurantee that he tried scouting you PM Rob, he handles the art portal glitches at the moment.

I no i only haf 1 art thing, but kan i b scooted nao?

No U cantz, youz ned fwee mo pieces 2 b scooted. Lucky ewe dough, yo piece id apooved by tom perfenably eben though it be phootoo collage.
