Submitting news now requires login


Hey folks, quick update from my side: submitting an article or header graphic now requires you to log in. This has nothing to do with security but instead with community conversation: previously, articles were submitted anonymously and if anyone commented on it, only I would receive the notification. By logging in before you submit something you will become the 'author' and you'll be notified when someone comments on your article.

As a bonus, you'll be able to see your previous articles (click on the author name) and if your reputation is good enough I can give you editing access to maintain your own posts.

I hope this will help make it easier for everyone to reach the amazing artists, developers, educators and other community members who write articles on BlenderNation!



About Author

Bart Veldhuizen

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. I see that the logged in, but why then when you press the "Submit to story" I re redirected to the login, and when re-enter your password - get into a profile, and from there I can not "Sumbit to story", coming back to the site, he had me already does not remember, and the cycle repeats itself ....

  2. The fact that I went there, and the site sees me .... but the function "Submit news" or "Submit YOUR Story" sends a re-login, and from there into the profile ... I tried in Chromium and Firefox by linux ... can in this case?

  3. ...and now for something completely different: regarding the news, why is it for some time now that there are no more links to "previous article" and "next article" anymore? Because sometimes I can't keep up reading all the articles that are posted, so I just read the latest and then went back to previous articles until I reach the one I read on my last visit.

    Now that's not possible anymore, and the "recent news" on the top right are sometimes less articles than I missed. Is there a chronical overview of all news articles somewhere that I am just to blind to see?

    Best regards,

    • Nice catch! Somehow that got disabled. I've added them back to the article template. It may take some time before all the caches clear, but you should at least see it on this page already.

      • I do! Thanks for changing it so quickly. I would have asked earlier, but I I thought it also was a new feature ;-)

  4. Totally understand, I think it will be an improvement to your website. I am guessing you get some spam should help to stop some of that too. :D Thanks for all your hard work and dedication to the blender community.

    • Obviously. It took me ten years to work up to this point, but now I can FINALLY start spamming the Blender community! [evil cackle]

    • I have re-worded the question to 'What is the first name of the founder of Blender?'. You will be able to figure that out ;-)

  5. Hello Blender Nation ... I am Mu'taz and I am from Sudan .. I work in the Blinder program of two years ... but unfortunately I did not achieve great things .... I want to learn how to make a video game .. Is it possible to find someone knows me So I'll wait .. And thank you.

  6. I tried to register but the generated password did not work and I'm now locked from trying again. The Contact link just takes me to the Submit News page, so I am unable to contact anyone. If you don't mind, would you please help me set up an account so I can start submitting stories? Thank you in advance!
