2. Click the gear icon on the far right in the main menu and select “Settings” from the dropdown list.

Why is there a butterfly logo next to my profile page name?

The categories are confusing. What belongs to what?

“Paintings” has five sub-categories: “Compositions”, “Portraits”, “Landscapes”, “Nature Morte” and “Other”. “Drawings” and “Sculptures” are independent categories.

Why can I not select “Sculptures” or “Paintings” from the category dropdown list?

A butterfly icon appears next to the title on each of my works’ pages, and beside my name on my profile page too – why?

Usually, this butterfly will be colorless, but if it is red this means that you are featured on the top list for works or members, depending on if it appears underneath particular work(s) or on your profile page.

Where can I find the Top list?

1. Click “Works” from the main menu. At the Works page, hit the “Top list” button appearing on the far right.

2. Click the butterfly icon that appears next to member’s name at the profile page. If this butterfly is colored red it will take you to the Top list.

Manage Events

How can I create an event?

1. Click “Home” from the main menu. At the home page, find the event sidebar at the upper right and click “Create an event” or click the feather pen icon.
2. Go to the page of any event and find the same upper right sidebar for events.

I cannot find my event, where is it?

The only place you will find the event if it is not displayed on the home page, is in the archives section. There could be a few reasons explaining why that is:
1. Your event is way ahead in the future. If you have set up your event a couple of weeks or months ahead there is a good chance that other events are waiting in line before you. Your event will then only be visible in the archives section until time and date comes to a close.

2. Your event has expired. Did you set the wrong month or year for your event? Even so, the event will only be visible in the archives section when it has come to an end.

Manage Articles

How can I write an article?

1. Click “Home” from the main menu. At the home page, click “Write an article” that appears underneath the articles-slider.

How can I edit or delete my article?

Which articles are featured below the slider on home page?

I cannot find my article – where is it?

If it does not show on the home page, then the only place left to look for it is in the archives section.
