Read these directions before posting. It will save you some trouble.
The form often times out (502, 503, 504 errors) while still posting your submission. Please check that your submission posted before hitting the submit button again or your submission will go through multiple times.
Double-check the form before hitting the Submit button because you cannot make changes yourself after it has posted.
Make sure you don’t use your mouse scroll wheel while clicked into a field because it may change your settings without your knowledge.
If you need us to make corrections to your post, please send a message through the Contact Form or on the post comments with the corrections you would like.
This form is tied to SWTORData by an API for inputting the item names. I have no control over whether or not an item is in that database for inclusion on this form. If you find errors, please contact SWTORConquest.
To get the API to work, you must type in the name of the item, wait for the drop down list, and choose the item from the list. If you chose not to do this, your item will not have a Swtordata tooltip linked on the post.
The API will not work if you copy and pasted a name into the field. Delete the last letter and re-type it and the API will start searching for the name.
There is a 50-item limit on the API. If the item you are looking for is further down the list, it will not show. You can still type the name of the item, but it will not have the Swtordata tooltip linked on the post.
Random world drop items often have a randomly assigned corporation name at the front of the name. This information is not available in locations where dataminers can grab it for their databases. Drop the corporation name when searching and you will find the item in the database. You can see lists of these names on the Static World Drop Modifiers page.
Please see the Terms if you have any questions about what is admissible.
Your submission will post immediately. There is no review system prior to your post showing up on the site. If you don’t see your submission immediately after posting, there are several possible issues:
You didn’t fill out all of the required fields. There will be an error message in red at the top of the form.
You didn’t check the Captcha button. There will be an error message in red at the top of the form.
Your image format is not recognized by the form. You may only submit images in jpg, jpeg, png, or gif format. Your images must have one of these valid extensions. The form will not give an error message for this.
Your submission was marked as spam (rare). If none of the other issues are the problem, please use the comments on this form to contact me. A contact message would also be marked as spam because the plugin marks an IP address as a spammer and all additional submissions will be marked as spam.
If you don’t have a program for cropping images, there are free programs on the internet, like Fotor Photo Crop, you can use.
First image = Thumbnail
It will not display on the post itself.
Use a picture that focuses on the character’s face.
It’s best to use a perfectly square image (eg, 150 x 150 px), because the site will center the image. If you use a rectangular image, you may only see parts of the character’s chest.
The rest of the images will post in the order listed on the form.
One outfit per post
The form is not set up to handle multiple outfits per post.
Because the thumbnail image is so small, it is very difficult to show more than one set on it.
People use the thumbnail to decide if they should click on your post to view more images. They won’t know there are multiple sets hiding in the post.
Good lighting conditions
No one can see how good your character looks if it is too dark.
The best places for lighting are Tatooine (not the stronghold), Alderaan, and Makeb, but make sure you turn your character into the sun(s).
Ilum is only good if you are trying to emphasize a glow on an item.
Generally you will want a pic showing the full frontal body, full back body, full side body, and then close ups of the chest/head area.
Make sure you zoom in as far as possible, but don’t clip off the feet in full shots.
Maximum graphic settings

Credit for Images – Please remember that it is illegal in The United States to take pictures off of other websites without providing proper credit to the owner of that material. If you are going to submit images taken from a source other than the game, provide proper credit in the comments section so we don’t get take-down requests.
