This is what the section was and is about. Getting ideas and improving as 3D artists.

Oh, ok. Thanks for clarifying things, and I apologize for spamming the Mecabricks server with pointless renders.

Been uploading renders of recent models I uploaded, some are official sets, some are alternatives of official sets, and all the renders have been removed. From what I can tell, only a few were just minifigures alone, but I don't see how the rest violated the render rules. I created the renders, no background image or transparent backgrounds, they are the 3D renders of the model, so I don't see how they violated the rules?

@mdublade, first lines of Scrubs first post in this thread say "Mecabricks is not an image sharing platform. Each artwork posted shall be carefully crafted and well composed. The purpose of this section is to showcase your best work only. Always favour quality over quantity."

I guess that Just rendering the plain models without any diorama is not very carefully crafted or well composed? These kind of images could instead be hosted on imgur or flickr and posted as comments for the model like scrubs show in this thread.

I will try to make it clearer in a close future to mitigate the confusion. The render section is for CG artists to showcase their work and improve their skills by sharing with the community and getting feedback from other users. A good example of images that are expected is the gallery from kriegaa.

I don't think that there is any purpose to post an image that is exactly the same as loading the 3D model. Hence one of the rules.

The focus of Mecabricks is on 3D models. It is where my efforts go to ensure that they are all securely stored and that users would never loose files. All of this has a cost and Mecabricks is not own or run like a big corporation. I already have about 250GB of user data stored with backup of backup of backup that I pay for. The render section is only a nice to have that I added a few years ago. However with Mecabricks becoming more popular I had to put some rules in order to keep the feature alive.

Just saw this for the first time. In the spirit of these new rules I have gone through my old renders and deleted those which did not comply to save you some work Scrubs
I went from 101 renders to 56.

Is there any plan to crack down on Spam Models as well, such as this one? https://www.mecabricks.com/en/models/pyj6WRDrvRq
Thanks for implementing these new rules by the way!
I really appreciate the work you do to keep this site as great as possible!

Can you explain why it's not allowed to post screenshots of Mecabricks on the rendering section?

What is the point of posting screenshots when you can already see it in 3D? As explained, Mecabricks is not an image sharing platform.

@ArmoredBricks

Yeah, many members here make random builds for no reason, and then they try to get likes and stuff. I think Mecabricks should ban that kind of thing.

What does explaining something special about minifigures mean?

I removed half a dozen more of my earlier renders that did not comply with the rule about image copyrights.
