It’s simple. Just create an account in the RenderMan Forums, and you can submit your work, post resources, and build tutorials to share with the entire RenderMan Community. Just click the “Contribute” button featured in the upper right-hand corner and you’re on your way …
Funny you should ask, yes we do! Here are our guidelines for posting. By following the guidelines you can make sure your posts are using the correct format and styles for our site. We encourage you to use those.
The RenderMan Community does not accept submissions which are advertisements or items for sale. The intention of the site is to create a true community space. If you are a vendor who wishes to share assets please do, you may give yourself a small attribute at the end of your post. Thanks for your understanding.
It depends on the type of contribution.
Showcases & Tutorials – For showcases and tutorials, by default you retain ownership under the following Creative Commons license, which offers a high degree of protection including attribution, non-commercial use, and no derivative works.
Resources – By default resources are posted in the public domain. We encourage users to post resources in the public domain because it make sharing assets much easier. By uploading content as a resource, unless you stipulate otherwise your work (such as a shading network) enters into the public domain.
Stipulate Your Own License – If you'd like to share your work, but wish to explicitly set your rights to the content, create your own a Creative Commons license. Licensing a work is as simple as selecting which of the six licenses best meets your goals, and then marking your work in some way so that others know that you have chosen to release the work under the terms of that license. For a Contribution to the RenderMan Community, you may add the license to your post, and include it as a README in your downloadable assets.
The Creative Commons License-Choosing Tool can help you select the right license.

6) When commenting, should I try make comments that everyone can understand and enjoy?
Great idea! We encourage all users of the community site to treat each other with respect and offer thoughtful constructive criticism on each other's work. Positive comments are always appreciated, of course, but we recommend not using the phrase "awesome sauce" more than once per hour.
Try using the Chrome or Firefox browsers.
1) How do I change my profile picture?
This is how you can change your profile picture:
1 .Click your user icon, at the top-right of any community page.
2. Click Profile.
3. Here you can select Upload Picture.
No. Take a look at another user's profile and you'll notice that an email address is not listed. The same goes for users who look at your profile.
No. Your history is preserved only as long as you have an account in the RenderMan Community.
We like your style … yes! Top contributors may be promoted to moderator on a case by case basis. The best way to get promoted to moderator is to a) provide great contributions, b) provide good feedback to others, and c) make friends with site moderators.
That is the goal, and we're working hard to ensure the RenderMan Community uses a responsive design, designed to display well on a whole range of devices.
