If you are new to the site there are a few things that you need to know.
We recommend FireFox, Chrome or Safari browsers this site was built for and tested with them, we won't guarantee any other browser will work, sorry.
New Members will not be able to vote on contests or events or leave comments in any of the other site forum sections until you have made the mandatory Introduction post to introduce yourself to the site.
New Members who do not make a introduction post within 24 hours will have their accounts treated as possible spam accounts and thus be deleted.
All users MUST read and adhere to the Site Rules
All Downloads are unlimited for contributing members of the site or for subscribers.
All posts must be in "ENGLISH" or they will be deleted, sorry we don't have time to translate.
If you are a artist, scanner or resource contributor you are encouraged to upload some of your work for gallery approval, once you have reached a minimum level of site participation the staff will flag you for a Group Membership upgrade this will allow you unlimited free site access.
See this post EFX Member Groups for requirements on the different Group memberships here at EFX you must be in one of them or be a Subscriber to have access to Cover Art or Resource Gallery Downloads.
If your new to the scene and are unsure if your work will be accepted feel free to post some examples of your work in the Design Discussions the staff here will provide you with feedback if any changes are needed.
Known artists (you know who you are) need not Prove yourselves simply upload your work, then as soon as you meet the minimum quantity for a group membership you will be upgraded.
If your membership is upgraded you will be expected to upload on a regular basis, to maintain that status.
Upgraded memberships will be revoked due to inactivity.

Guidelines now located in each Gallery you will see a link at the top of each gallery homepage menu called Guidelines.
Here are some quick links for you I suggest you read them if you plan to upload, because Failure To Follow these guidelines will result in your upload privileges being suspended.
CoverArt Gallery Guidelines
Resource Gallery Guidelines
1. In closing comments on covers are not posts, they are gallery comments, the Introduction Post must be in the forum in the Introductions section, make it make sense-- just saying...
2. Don't ask current members here to download and send you covers or resources that you can't download due to you not being an active member or subscriber, if we find that has happened we will ban both accounts, you will get banned just for asking even if the member you asked does not send it, so don't do it, you have all been warned.
The ban will be immediate and there will be no warnings, as this is specifically mentioned in the site rules here and should be common sense anyway.
So folks if you're a regular here and you have free access due to your status and someone asks you to send them a cover, label or resource item, don't even respond to that they should know better, protect your account click the forward button on the msg and send it to me, I'll ban them and you will be fine.
3. Blatant violations of any site policy can result in your membership being immediately terminated.
