How do I start my own gallery?
Go to the main index of the fan art gallery and click the "Start your own gallery" link. Log in with your WMI account if you aren't already logged in and you can now set up your own gallery.

If you don't have a WMI account (a forum account) you can sign up for one here.

I have an old gallery, how do I get access to it?
If your gallery was created before December 17th 2002 and you wish to get access to it then send an email to Dalixam with the subject "My Gallery" and list your WMI username, your email address, and the name used on your gallery. You will then get administrative access as soon as possible.

Note: This only applies to galleries created before December 17th 2002. Users who create a gallery after this date automatically gets administrative access to their gallery and does not need to write an email.

How do I upload images?
When you have created your own gallery you'll see a list of menus on the fan art gallery index. If you aren't logged in you will need to log in first by clicking the "Log in" link and type your username and password in the correct fields.

Clink the link named "Add images to your gallery" and type a title for your image in the text field. Select the image file to add and click "Upload". Notice, that you can only upload jpg or gif images and they can't be larger than 500 KB.

How do I edit images?
Click the link named "Edit your images" on the main gallery page and click the edit button beneath the image you wish to edit. After you are done editing click "Upload" and the information for the image is changed.

How do I delete images?
Click the link named "Edit your images" on the main gallery page and click the edit button beneath the image you wish to delete. Check the box named "Delete image?" and click "Upload". The image is now deleted. NOTE: This will also delete any comments that users have made about the image.

What kind of fan art is allowed?
We don't have many rules although there is a few which help to heighten the quality of the fan art galleries. The art must of course be Monkey Island related. Screenshots, modified or not, is not allowed and a few lines, a circle with eyes, and the word "Guybrush" above is not considered fan art and therefore not allowed either. Uploaded images which doesn't follow these simple rules will not be approved.

I see some images that doesn't follow the rules.
In December 2002 the former "Monkey Island Art Connection" was integrated into "The World of Monkey Island" which meant that all their galleries and images were moved here. Some of the art on MIAC consisted of screenshots, which is why you see some in the galleries here. No new art which consist of screenshots, modified or not, will be approved though.

I have started my own gallery, but it isn't shown in the gallery index.
Your gallery will not appear in the gallery index until it contains at least one approved image. Read more about approved images below.

I have uploaded an image, but it isn't shown in my gallery.
When you upload an image it is added to a queue and needs to be approved by a staff member before it is visible in your gallery. We do this to prevent uploading of non-MI or inappropiate images. We check the queue of images awaiting approval at least once a day, so it shouldn't be so long from you upload your image to it is shown in your gallery.

I have an idea/wish for a new feature in the gallery.
Great! New ideas and wishes are always welcome. Please send your idea or wish to Dalixam with the subject "Fan Art Gallery idea/wish". Please note that we do not have time to reply to each email, but they will all be read and if the idea/wish is useful it will be added.

I have found a bug in the gallery script.
Please send an email to Dalixam with the subject "Fan Art Gallery bug" and include a detailed description of the bug, what it did, and how it happened so we can correct it as soon as possible.
