I hope this message finds you well. I wanted to take a moment to provide an update regarding the closure of the Lora request form, as mentioned in the title. Effective August 1st, the form will no longer be available for new submissions. For those who have already submitted their requests before the specified date, please be assured that I will make my best efforts to complete and upload them to Civitai.
It is important to note that while I strive to accommodate all requests, there have been instances where certain submissions proved to be exceptionally challenging or did not meet the desired outcomes. Thus, I cannot guarantee the fulfillment of every request. Sometimes, the complexity of a model or its unsatisfactory results may necessitate my decision to refrain from pursuing certain projects. Please understand that it is not a reflection of your ideas, but rather a consideration of feasibility and personal comfort.
Now, you may be wondering why I have made the decision to close the Lora Request Form. The simple answer is time. In late August, significant changes will occur in my life that will reduce the amount of free time I have available for creating these models. Due to these time constraints, I regretfully cannot continue delivering models at the current pace. Initially, I began creating models as a hobby and subsequently introduced the Lora request form once I discovered ways to enhance production. I have never sought financial compensation for these requests because my intention was to keep it as a hobby. I genuinely enjoy the process of making these models and learning about AI. Witnessing the creativity of individuals and bringing their ideas to life brings me immense joy.
After I fulfill all the remaining Lora requests, I plan to take a short break. This break will allow me to restructure myself in preparation for the upcoming changes in my life. Rest assured, I am not leaving Civitai or this wonderful community. I have had the pleasure of interacting with some incredible members and have been inspired by their passion and dedication. There are truly exceptional people among us ඞ. Following my break, I intend to continue creating models, albeit at a slower pace, focusing primarily on my own ideas. I have exciting concepts in mind that extend beyond character and style Loras. Additionally, I aim to explore alternative training methods and perhaps develop tools that can benefit the community.
How to submit a request:
Please go to my lora request form and read the rules carefully.
If you need help or just need a quick and simple guide on how to make a dataset, read my guide.
Please ensure that your dataset is stored in a Google Drive rather than a zip file. It is crucial to verify if your dataset allows access, as there are still individuals who have not granted me access to their dataset. Unfortunately, without access, I am unable to utilize it to create any models.
Additionally, I would like to reiterate that any requests submitted after August 1st will not be processed. While I may keep the request form open for future consideration, I cannot guarantee that I will fulfill requests submitted after this date. I kindly request your patience as I work on completing the Lora requests posted prior to August 1st. I have allocated approximately three weeks to fulfill all of these requests to the best of my ability.
Some last little things I wanted to say:
Although I am not leaving, I still wanted to thank some people. I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to all those who have supported me in creating these models. Whether you generously shared your own techniques, provided valuable advice on generations, or simply appreciated the models I made, your contributions have been invaluable. Each and every one of you rocks! I would also like to extend my sincere thanks to those who entrusted me with their model requests. Your belief in my abilities and the effort you put into creating datasets for me to utilize have been truly appreciated.
Additionally, I want to acknowledge the remarkable team at Civitai. Their unwavering assistance in resolving any issues I encountered on the site, as well as their willingness to implement the features I suggested, have been of immense help. The Civitai team truly understands the platform and I encourage them to continue their outstanding work.
Finally, I want to express my gratitude to all of you who have taken the time to read this message. Your willingness to delve into my ramblings is sincerely appreciated. While this may feel like a farewell, it is merely a prelude to a new chapter.
