Was it a drawing? Artwork is not allowed in the galleries due to copyright issues, and gets deleted when found.

Unless there's some glitch in the gallery display software, it may have been deleted in a gallery sweep for a "non-compliance with the Cosplay.com rules" reason.

there was no artwork involved..just a simple banner i made myself w/ the two costumes i planned on doing and just said "katsucon 10"

Susumari, it somehow disapeared from my gallery too :(

*nods* There was a notice about clearing the galleries. It would really suck if Admin got into trouble for hosting copyrighted images. I don't quite understand all of the laws surrounding public domain & copyrights. Anyways, unless it's not allowed in sigs too, e-mail me & I'll host your sig pic on my domain.

Your banner was deleted because it wasn't a photo, it was a couple of bits of anime combined into a banner. The big red bold words next to the "submit" button on the upload image page say this is against our rules to upload this to our website.

You are more than welcome to link to the image from your own webspace somewhere else, but we won't host it for you.

*sigh* - and how were these costumes shown? In anime or game screen grabs? That's copyrighted artwork.

If your banner was instead just all text, it still doesn't meet the criteria of "photo" to be hosted in the galleries. It would have to be hosted elsewhere.

EDIT: I see Admin beat me to the reply. :D
