Just a suggestion from me ... please comment and/or give your own ideas. We will let Webmaster Scorrt decide the final convention.

Is use <xxx> for mandatory designations and [yyy] for optional ones.

<type>[_condition(s)][number]_<nickname(s)>[set-label].png

Examples
Rock_Large_grey01_LRK-a.png
Bush_Autumn02_HLB-c.png
Tree_Oak02_SB.png
Marble_Green_MJ_KPL-a.png or Floor_Marble_Green_MJ_KPL-a.png
Bucket_Empty_BLU.png
Screwdriver03_DL.png (eh ... DragonLady)
Car_Ford_Crashed05_BW_DBL.png
Cityblock_SR.png

etc ...
I like using Capital letters for this

The cool thing about this type of naming convention is that you can continue to use quite simple names and not generate duplicates ie: rock_HBP-a.png etc.

Works for me... but does this mean we need a registry for nickname abbreviations?

Seriously, any nonsense like that should work itself out pretty quickly with minimum overlap (hopefully).

Blah. I am having some trouble with cookies and such this morning it would seem. Hopefully I say logged in long enough to send a reply that is correcly identified as being from me! Yeesh.

I believe Cecil already has a list with abreviations he uses for the CSUAC. I suggest we use that one

Heh - Nice of Kep to choose something I already follow (more or less) =P. Don't forget to mention that if you modify something you should include your abbrv. as well: so, something_nice_by_SR_DBL.etc

Geez! I'm almost crying for some good laughs from Lurker’s “wise” words…

Ok, but now what is important: and about us, newbie’s who still don’t have “nickname abbreviations” from CSUAC? What to do? Post art files without the nick abbreviation, or invent one? If so, there are any important guidelines, or can I simply put simplest way? (For example, Geynn ap Nudd as gan?)

Just in case I start to try and post some art here

Just make it up, and make sure it doesn't match a nick already in use by
someone else.

"gan" would work.

Kep - or anybody for that matter.

when naming using the -a sequence, are you just limited to the alphabet? what happens if for some bizarre reason I went a tad mad and have now run out of letters by a long way? do I then move on to -aa as in excel??

ae
