Herpy.nu will close down in January 2018 - will be replaced by something new and better.

Herpy has had a good 13 year run and will never be forgotten for those of us who experienced it. Sadly the site is today unappealing and is no longer fit for the audience of 2018, and years of smear campaigns have given us a reputation that has been hard to shake. We therefore made the choice to close the site and move on to a brighter future. While the forums will be archived as a memory of times of past greatness, new funds have been raised and new admins have been recruited to start working on a entire new community far away from Bad Dragon and any association with that company. The gallery will remain operational in the meantime. You can follow me on Twitter for further developments. We also have a Discord server which has become the heart of the community. If you wish to join it, send a PM to Valcyrie.

Herpy have always been my little lovechild since I joined over a decade ago. But he grew up, and as he has aged with dignity its time for his hatchling to take over. A fresh start for a new generation in a new era.

Kind regards,

Uploading to the Gallery

Post by Ethos » October 6th, 2016, 1:30 am

The following tutorial will guide users through the uploading process at the Herpy.nu gallery.

1. Log in to the gallery
2. Click on the "Upload File" link at the top of the page to reach the following screen:


3. Choose a target album for your image from the pull-down menu
4. Click "Browse" and select your image which will then upload and appear on screen as a thumbnail

NOTE: You can repeat step 4 multiple times, though uploading a maximum of five to ten images at a time is recommended

5. Once you have finished uploading your image (or images) a "continue" button will appear:


6. Click on the "continue" button and you will be taken to the "edit files" screen:


NOTE: When filling out the "Keywords" field, use only letters, numbers, and underscores because special characters $/\:*?"'<>|` '&#@ will cause error messages (for example, Sil'thaera should be spelt as Sil-thaera). Further note that the same rule applies to the name of the file you upload.

6. Enter a name for the image in the "Title" field
7. Enter the artist name or a description in the "Description" field
8. Enter the tags in the "Keywords" field (if unsure, check similar images to use as a template or guide)
9. Enter the artist's website in the "source" field
10. Click the "apply changes" button at the top or bottom of the page:


Now you can click the "home" button to return to the main page of the gallery or click "upload file" to upload more images if you like.

Bear in mind that the image(s) will appear immediately if you have been added to the "Trusted Uploaders" group, otherwise by default there will be a delay until the image is first verified by a moderator.
