imgur.com terms of service explicitly says that they are not on the hook should someone abuse there service and that content on there needs to be sub-licensed.

Cant we all just stick to this and be done with it:
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Public_domain

Every photo done by a public agency is under there, including US and UK military. Once a black bar is applied they cant even call "deformation".

As i said before, this is a pain to deal with. I only want you to stay safe.

Pixabay is as fare i can tell no longer cc3 compatible.

Until late 2018 Pixabay used cc0 (Public Domain) as there license. Than they changed to a license that is incompatible with every other license.

Since your image was published in 2017 it falls under cc0 and is therefore compatible (everything cc0 is a good thing, at least for our purposes). I would make a snapshot of that site to prove that it is listed under cc0.

Everything checks out. Please continue.

Welcome to the sandbox.

The paradox that you can solve if you just think hard enough in the wrong direction.

I have not said anything the last time since i assumed that the painting was old (checked that just now, that painting is definitely free to use), but this time, with the new project, it looked to young to be copyright free.

I traced the image back to a Russian site and a deviant art account.

I can not confirm this for the Russian site, but as fare as deviant art is concerned, that picture is not listed under Creative Commons 3.0 or Public Domain.

Please check the copyright status of your used images (if you ever wondered why i don't use images, this is a hornets nest that you don't want to have in your living room).

Also, have you considered a tabview?
You are making many pages with concepts and prototypes. How to make a tabview is detailed on the front page of the sandbox.

To this item idea in particular i would recommend to get some distance between yourself and the item.
While reading it i was sure that you yourself have a problem with the concept.
Your personal feelings should not influence the tone of the article.
You are attempting a type of horror rarely seen around here. You try to trigger a "disgust" reaction.
To pull that of you have to write the article completely detached from buzzwords and strong feelings that arise from the subject matter.

If this is a joke and i am reading to deep into it: "My bad. Please proceed."

Welcome to the Sandbox.
Welcome to the depths.

From reading this i get the feeling that a lot of things could and will go wrong during this mission, while i just sit here and enjoy the show.

Client Unavailable Protocol is once again in effect.
The last activity of high command is older than a month.

Nov. 5th 2018

For non high command members that means to step up.
Looks like we are needed again.

I made you a little tabview.
Make Tabs, and fill them, add the sandbox tag to your site and boom Sandbox.

Help regarding Sandbox by Meta WonderratMeta Wonderrat, 26 Sep 2018 15:28

It were not my items that brought him into the light, but every word he said to me was worth it. He staid with this discussion longer than i expected. Same for you.
If someone can help me, that someone can help everyone. One day he will possibly help someone he likes more, someone who will become better because of him. Everyone will be better of once people are more open to speaking there mind.

He got involved more because of my item. I just hope that he sticks around.

At least that is what i meant there.

Re: Black Liquid Mirror by Meta WonderratMeta Wonderrat, 11 Jun 2018 20:32

Thank you for following up on my request to move our discussion to a forum thread. I see there's been a discission here, and DrSuppose brought up a lot of what I was going to say. Albeit he said more.

I'm going off to sleep now so I'll save the majority of my thoughts for tomorrow, if there are any left, but for now, I just want to comment on something that seems… unusual.

If all i contribute to the wiki is getting people like you involved, than i have not failed.

This is generally an odd statement to make. As far as I know, Suppose is a long-time lurking member who entered after reading "two Items and one tale". He could have been exaggerating, but I don't really think so. Are you referring to someone in particular? Because if not… you really shouldn't be saying it.

If you see my tone as rude, i apologizes. My actions have always reflected my beliefs, at least i see it that way. All questions i ask, are mend to be answered. If there answers had no meaning to me i would not ask. I am looking forward to your next work and hope that despite our differences, we can work together in the future.

You border on the melodramatic with such rhetoric, mate. Your tone is even a little too testy here than what I could consider polite. It's good that you remain committed, but let your actions reflect your beliefs. You don't need me to answer your questions. Many of our contemporaries here are passionate writers. I don't care much about comparisons to titans and all that. This is all I have left to say in this thread.

So, that is your angle.

your lack of success in publishing your own should act as an indicator to you on how much (or how little) you should weigh your words

If you believe that i should be measured by my failures, your assumptions are correct. You might have noticed that i don't use that ruler. All i have done i have done because i thought it was the right thing to do at the moment.
I am not a perfectionist. Do you think a perfectionist would write "Zeta"? Do you think a perfectionist would publish an item just because the wiki was silent for a few months?
I am acutely aware that i don't measure up to the titans of old. That dose not mean that i will just sit in a corner and wait for better days.
I am not sure how deep you went, when you looked at my work, but let me ask you this…
What was "The Wintergreen Protocol"?

The good old times wont come back, if we just sit and wait. I have seen what happens when you tie your commitment to the site to your success. It breaks you, drives you away.
My point is that i don't have the talent to take the top yet, but that will never stop me from trying.
Setback after setback, failure after failure.
I am still here and i don't plan on leaving anytime soon.

I like you "disagreeable". You will fight for what you believe in, as do I. You don't like my work, great that implies you read it. You don't like my way of critic and me integrating stuff into my work, great that means you read it. You are still here, trying to save me.

If all i contribute to the wiki is getting people like you involved, than i have not failed.
There will still be someone to answer the door.
I disagree with you on many things, but that is not bad. Progress always follows Problems.

Let me ask you something else.
Where would you be if your writing had failed? Would you just give up writing or would you try again and again until you get it right?

I have seen people come, fail and leave. Tying once own self-worth to ones success works great when things go up, not so if they don't. I think that this mentality can and has cost us our members.

EDIT:

articles which the author recognizes cannot work in their current state

I thought i had it.

I don't launch things i don't think can succeed. My sandboxes are filled with pieces i would never try to put up in there current state. But once i cant get anymore feedback on a piece the only thing leaved to try and improve it is to put it in the line of fire. Best outcome: It sticks, hurray.
Worst outcome, -2 without explanation. Possible outcome: Feedback, hurray.
You see, i cant loose in this game. A setback here wont make my writing worse, but i might get the chance to improve it or confirmation that i have improved.

I know my writing is hard to digest so i can not just overload the page by releasing everything, because the more pieces i put out the less is the chance to get my feedback. I would actually drive people away from me or even worse the wiki.
