By the way, I'd suggest to make those threads VISIBLE also to guests. It would encourage more people to register to see some artworks.
I wish I could, but in the settings, I'm unable to. If I change the settings, from the way I have them, anybody and everybody will be able to vote which could lead to cheating. Right now you have to have 5 posts to look and 5 posts to vote. I can't do 0 posts to look and 5 posts to vote, it won't let me have that adjustment.
What I can do is make a topic in this section that shows all of the scenes and has descriptions of what is happening, as many of the people who submitted scenes explained what was happening.
The original pic was too small after I cropped it and I finally got a replacement that wasn't too small.
Just a few tips to everyone who wants to know how to take better pictures...
Take your pictures in the largest resolution setting your camera or phone can take. That way, if you have to edit the photo or crop it, you have the space to do so, but most importantly, so the detail will be at the maximum. And also, if you take pictures at the largest setting, and they have speckles called noise, resizing the picture AFTER YOU TAKE IT, can eliminate a lot of that noise.
Why? Because... for example... if the noise speckles are 2 pixels wide at 2048 pixels wide, when you resize down to 1024 pixels wide, the noise will only be 1 pixel wide and less noticeable. If you take your picture at 1024, you're probably going to have noise 2 pixels wide, and noticeable. Noise is a result of underexposure and/or a high ISO setting. If you are using a camera that allows you to select the ISO setting, set it at 100 or 200 maximum. You would only use 400 to 800 to take pictures of fast moving objects like a butterfly flying around your face. Underexposure means there isn't enough light getting into the lens of the camera and so speckles happen. I do not recommend changing the exposure setting on your camera if it allows you to, as I've never seen a benefit. To account for a poor exposure of an object that is not moving, you have to decrease the Shutter Speed, which is the speed in which the camera takes the photo. Lower speed = lens absorbs more light = dark parts of the photo aren't as dark. Problem with slow shutter speed = if you wiggle, you get blurred image.
Unless you're using a digital camera that's less than 3 mega pixels, you shouldn't be shooting ANY pic at less than 2048 pixels wide no matter what. Camera only came with a 16 mb card or something else pathetic like 99% of them do? Buy an 2... 4... 8... or 16 gb card for about $10 and take as many photos as you want. Phones aren't always upgradeable like that and you probably don't have to worry about that anyway, as most come with plenty of memory. I shoot every single pic I ever take at the largest size my camera and phone can take. And if you have the option on your camera or phone, you should ALWAYS be shooting pics at Fine quality. Not Standard.

The 5 people (don't know who you were) who already voted on the Loser Battle will need to vote again.
DBZunbound let me know that I made a mistake by listing (in the poll) SS Goku & SS Gohan INSTEAD OF SS Goku & Frieza, so I had to delete the poll and remake it. You can't edit polls.
So you guys will need to vote again.
Based on the other polls, the missing voters on the replacement Loser Battle are PGV, loki, Gohan, @m5jagdragonpanzeriv, you guys will need to vote again on that one because I had to delete and remake the poll to fix an error.
