What is Sieve?

Sieve is a web application in early private beta that allows artists to track, showcase, and receive payments for their commissions. It also includes technology that helps guard uploaded static artwork from AI data scraping.Onboarded users ("Sievartists") can track their workflow with cards, upload finished artwork to help guard it from AI data scraping, and showcase their page to receive direct payments for commissions.You have to meet minimum age requirements to sign up or to access our no-fee payment processing.

How it works

Sieve is in early private beta and is onboarding artists and art lovers periodically. Sign up to receive an invite email (no invite code necessary)!After you create an account, you can track your commissions, get paid, make new friends, and have fun in our intimate and kindness-focused community 💖Our initial Sieve page background is created by the lovely @arunyi_! Please note that her art is unavailable in Star mode. When in Star mode, you can choose a default, white background ("default" theme) or upload a jpg, png, or gif ("custom" theme).

Your private and public view

Similar to Trello, your Sieve page will have a private view and a public view.Private View
The private view gives you the ability to add, edit, and delete cards and columns when you're tracking your commissions. In the gallery, you can upload static images, and manage them in the yellow gallery folder ("magical folder").
You can also customise your account username, website link, and background image that show in the public view. Participate in Star mode by turning on the "Star mode" toggle to earn stars and level up your Sievartist type to enable payments 🤩

Public View
Visitors to your Sieve page see the same cards, columns, public gallery images, and the background image you customised. They cannot edit page content or account details.
A "Pay" button is shown next to your name and commission sub-header for your Supporters to pay you directly. Learn more how to unlock and enable payments here and here.

View your Public Sieve page

Your public Sieve page can be accessed by others through sieve.page/username. You are required to choose a username of no less than two letters upon account sign-up.

I want more features! How do I tell you?

We go through software updates monthly based on Sievartist feedback! We're literally here to customise the app however you want us to, please let us know what features you'd like to be added!File a "Feature Request" in our Help channel on Discord or let us know below!

I see bugs! How do I tell you?

See above!Some common bug questions we get include:Weird "Application Error" Message
Certain new Sievartists see this error when attempting to create an account on mobile or tablet. Please use a laptop or a desktop to register! We have not yet optimised our registration flow for mobile or tablet.
A few existing Sievartists see this error upon performing certain actions on the site. Please be sure to clear the browser cache and download the latest version of your browser! The error should go away. If it persists, please reach out to us and let us know what browser and operating system you're using so we can better help you!

Mobile or tablet
Please note that Sieve is currently only optimised to be used on a desktop. While your page can be viewed on your mobile or tablet device, we recommend only performing basic edits to your cards or images. You could still see application errors or lags in response (in other words, bugs!). If enough Sievartists are using the app on mobile and tablet, we will dedicate more time to optimise the mobile and tablet experience. ❤️ Let us know, please!
Payment processor connection
Please note that we currently partner with Stripe for no-fee commission processing. Unfortunately, Stripe is still in beta in many countries. We apologise for the inconvenience if you're a Sievartist who cannot use our payment feature yet! 😵 To see the list of countries in which Stripe is fully available, see here. We have plans to upgrade our payment processor capabilities, thank you for your patience!
Artwork AI-protective gloss
Similar to other AI-protective solutions, there are limitations to the algorithm in Sieve. There may be times when your uploaded image may fail to be AI-protective "glossed". If that happens, you will see an error message in the drag & drop box in which you tried to upload your image. Please let us know so we can give you more stars to gloss another version! See more here.

Magical Folder

The magical folder stores all the images you upload to Sieve and allows you to add, delete, and organise your gallery.The first 5 images in the folder mirror the 5 images currently in your public Sieve page gallery. The other images are the ones you uploaded that are currently kept away from public view.Inside the folder:
To add images: Upload or drag & drop images to the placeholder. It will require stars as they are additional images to be run through the algorithm.
To delete images: Click the trash bin icon on the image
To organise images: Drag & drop images to reorder or swap them from your public gallery!

How do I process commissions on Sieve?

Connect your Stripe account to allow Supporters to pay you via their bank card on your Sieve page! Payments go directly from the Supporter to the Sievartist and Sieve takes no fee. This feature is currently only available to Asteroid Artists. To see your artist type, look at the badge in between "Star mode" and your star count in the top right-hand corner of the navigation bar.

In keeping with the values of Sieve, our payment feature allows Artists to retain full control over their commission process. As such, commission terms and conditions, customer support, chargeback, disputes, and all other relevant commission-related support will be handled by the Artist. If you receive a dispute with a Stripe payment, you can refer to Stripe's guides on how to handle them here and here. We'd love to hear from you if we can be of service or contact Stripe directly.

1) Enter all Account details and enable payment processing 🌠- Make sure you entered a Sieve display name, username, and website for your Supporters!
- Under your email, click "Create Stripe Account"

If you don't have a Stripe account, this will prompt you to quickly set up a Stripe account for free

2) Set up your Sieve-connected Stripe 💪🏻- Go through a short connection/setup process with Stripe. Similar to the Stripe connection process on Ko-fi, a new window will pop up asking you to sign into your Stripe account
- Stripe would ask for certain details such as account details (email, password), business or personal details (location, if you're a business or individual, and some personal information), professional details (details about your business, bank account to link for Stripe to send payouts)
- Enter "Public Details" such as business name, phone number, and address. Please choose the details you want to be shown publicly (e.g. bank statements, confirmation emails, etc.). Your Supporters can see this information when they complete a payment
- For now, we only support Stripe payment processing and this Sieve-connected Stripe account will remain on your Sieve account once you set it up
- Once all the necessary information is provided, you will be redirected back to your Sieve page (and you're now ready to start earning)!

3) Show off your Sieve page to Supporters 🎨- The "Pay" button is displayed on the public Sieve page next to your yellow sub-header

Other informationSievartists can enable or hide the "Pay" button on your public Sieve page. If you no longer wish visitors to have the option to send you payments, simply go to "Account" > "Payments & Orders" and turn off the toggle.

Stripe payout schedules depend on your location and business type. After that, it's a rolling 2, 4, or 7-day schedule. You can even set it to transfer instantly for a fee. You can learn more in the "Payout Settings" of your Stripe Dashboard.

What is gloss?

When you upload an artwork to the Sieve page gallery, you apply a "gloss" to help guard it from AI data scraping. Out of an abundance of caution, we disclose the algorithm and its authors to onboarded Sievartists only. This method differs from existing systems released by American university research teams, which guards artwork by shifting and disrupting an artwork's feature representation to AI models. Similar to their work, it contains limitations and faces the challenge of being future-proof in the long run as the development of generative AI models accelerates. The Sieve team is committed to expanding the algorithm's protective capabilities and demands respect and understanding of our good faith efforts.Sieve is open to all artists in the community (no invite code!). We are pacing access to ensure the best experience given heightened demand. Interested artists can sign up for an email invite.

Will you support other content formats in the future?

That's the hope! We are working hard to expand our team to improve the algorithm. We appreciate your trust, patience, and understanding in the meantime.

I have more questions, comments, or constructive feedback, who do I contact?

We love hearing from existing and potential Sievartists! Please be kind and respectful when reaching out via social media @sievepage. Even if we cannot immediately incorporate your feedback, we always listen and consider it as we iterate our product.We absolutely do not tolerate disrespect and will promptly take appropriate actions to address the misbehaviour. This includes threats, harassment, stalking, abuse, slurs, profanity, personal attacks, negging, backhanded comments, sexual remarks or innuendos, physical violence, baseless accusations, public speculation about others, and any other behaviour that Sieve deems inappropriate. Our team is here for the long haul and will take any and all possible remedies available to us to protect the integrity of our app and the safety of our community.We'd love to have you join and read our community and content guidelines.

For this clause, “we” is defined to include our affiliates, officers, directors, agents, employees, and third-party service providers. The Service is not liable to Artists nor Supporters for loss or damage, arising under or in connection with the inability to use the Service or the use of any content displayed on the site. Specifically, we are not responsible for loss of sales, business opportunity, goodwill or reputation, or any other related consequential loss or damage.Our site is not guaranteed to be free or secure from bugs or viruses. It is the responsibility of the users to secure and back up relevant content. The configuration of programs, platforms, and information necessary to access the Services is the sole responsibility of the users. You must not knowingly misuse or cause harm to the Service by introducing viruses or other material that is technologically harmful. You must not attack the Service via a denial-of-service attack or a distributed denial-of-service attack or attempt to gain unauthorized access. The breach of this provision would constitute a criminal offense under the Computer Misuse Act 1990 and will be reported to the relevant law enforcement authorities. In the event of such occurrence, you will cease to use the Service and we will co-operate with those authorities by disclosing your identity and all relevant information.We welcome all feedback, provided that it is given in good faith and with the intention of improving the Service and the community it serves. If a dispute arises out of these terms or in relation to your use of the Service, then the dispute will be resolved in the federal or state courts located in Delaware. Both parties consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the Delaware courts for the purpose of resolving any such dispute. Delaware law governs these terms, all other Sieve policies, and disputes that arise between you and the Service.These Terms constitute an agreement between you and us and supersede all prior agreements. They do not constitute any partnerships, joint ventures, or employee-employer or franchiser-franchisee relationship between you and us. Should any provision of these Terms fail to be deemed enforceable, then that provision will be modified to the extent necessary to be enforceable. If the provision cannot be modified to be enforceable, then it will be severed from these terms, and all other provisions are to remain in force. Should either party fail to enforce a right provided by these Terms, then it does not waive the ability to enforce any rights in the future.Changes to TermsWe may change these Terms from time to time. The “effective date” legend at the top of these Terms indicates when this was last revised. Any changes are effective when we post the revised Terms on the Service. If we make any material changes to these Terms, we will take reasonable measures to notify you via email and/or a prominent notice on the Service prior to the change becoming effective and will update the effective date. You are advised to review the Terms periodically for any changes.CONTACT US
