Can I use artwork from this website for my project?

All of the artwork on Creative Uncut is from video games and is therefore the copyright of the respective companies that produced it, and although I often do a fair amount of editing to make it presentable, that does not change the copyright. The usual rules for "fair use" of copyrighted works apply, which generally allows personal use that is informational or educational in nature, rather than commercial. I'm unable to advise on what constitutes fair use, so it's best to consult a more authoritative source.

I'm interested in purchasing links or advertising space on your website.

Creative Uncut is not looking to partner with additional ad networks at this time. Similarly, we are not interested in selling links.

Where do you obtain concept artwork from?

Sources are numerous, but the most common is media released online by video game companies or their publishers, usually through press hubs. Sometimes the artwork comes to me directly from the companies or artists. Another significant source is art books or strategy guides that I have scanned myself or scans I have received from a contact. Some of those contributers are credited on this page.

I have content I would like to donate, will you accept it?

I am thankful for the thought, but unless you are a game company or official artist, I really prefer not to accept material from website visitors. The best way to maintain unique content with consistent standards in image quality and resolution is to oversee all content creation myself.

I noticed you cover the ____ game series but not every title in it. Why?

Sometimes I simply have not got around to adding every title, but more often it's because I don't have a quality source for materials. Gallery updates are subject to artwork availability and images that meet my standards for minimum size and quality.

I came across a 404 page via a broken link on your website.

That's a broken link I'd like to know about. Please let me know where it was encountered and I will have it fixed immediately. Please note that if you encountered a 404 page via an external link, ie from another website, then it's likely the website linked to a page or file that does not exist here, or misspelled the path name.

There is an incorrect character name or typo in one of your galleries.

I'm always thankful to have these pointed out, accurate titles are very important here.

Where do you host a large website like this?

CU has always been hosted by Dathorn Internet Services. Finding hosting for a large website can be a nightmare, especially a few months in when you get the 'real' experience, but after the less-than-stellar experiences I've had with hosts for previous websites, Dathorn has been worry-free. And for bandwidth hogs like this site, they let you combine data packages into one account. You can find cheaper hosts, but you will certainly pay for it in quality.

I sent a message and didn't receive a reply. What's up?

I try to respond to every message within a day or two. If you don't get a response within 48 hours, it's likely I did not receive your message. With the amount of spam I receive daily, it's possible for a message to get lost. To ensure this does not happen, you can grab my attention by beginning your subject line with "CU MAIL".
