Galleries are free and readily available to active members of the community.

Please wait at least 4 weeks before asking for an album, please post an introduction for yourself, and try to participate in the forums. Albums are a lot more interesting if the members have a sense of who you are.

We also ask that you have a minimum of 100 posts.

If you have done those things, and you're ready for an album or albums, please send a PM to SourdoughStomper, or Kiwi and we'll try to get you setup as soon as we can.

You may also request an album in the Sigs & Gallery Forum.
Specify which type of Album(s) you'd like, Collection, Art, Customs, Adoptables or Sale.. Also, please add some pics to your album as soon as possible as we try to avoid having empty albums for very long.

Please keep in mind that these galleries and upload privileges are just that, a privilege, and they can be revoked or removed at any time by discretion of the site owners. These are provided to our active members as a gift and tool with the understanding that they will be maintained by active members of the Arena.

Albums which appear to have no activity for 4 months are subject to removal.

Albums that have been empty for 2 weeks are subject to removal.


A tutorial for working in your new album can be found below. This was created by Navymom02navy.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
