Art Credit Addendum

Hey folks, we've had the new art credit rules in effect for a little while now, and we wanted to clarify the kind of credit that we'd like to see. Going forward, a list of comma separated names with no indication of who created which piece of art will no longer suffice.

Option 1: Credit inline with each image and indicated in the Art Credits field.

Example 1 Wrote:
Donec eu mollis neque, vitae ultrices lectus. Ut sodales neque sit amet facilisis rhoncus. Duis in nulla ut tortor volutpat finibus. Ut dapibus a quam vel aliquam. Integer accumsan ipsum ut auctor faucibus. Nunc tincidunt ut mauris vitae sodales. Pellentesque a interdum massa. Fusce lectus odio, finibus ut viverra a, viverra ut magna. Quisque at fringilla eros. In lacinia varius nisi in tincidunt. Pellentesque dictum, nibh vel semper imperdiet, urna quam convallis sem, vel vehicula nibh ex pulvinar ante. Aenean finibus diam lorem, sit amet dictum nibh laoreet eget. In tempus urna nec suscipit vestibulum.

It should be easy for us to match up the artist to the artwork, since we want to give credit where credit is due. Hyperlinks to the original artist are not required, but definitely encouraged!
