    A few notes on posting:


    M keep the image sizes under
    450 px wide. if you need help resizing an image, please ask for help.

    Mgive credit where credit is due --IOW, if you didn't make it, please let us know where you got the image, or who made it originally.

    Mif you're posting a large image, please use the cut tag. click here to learn how.

    Mdo you need a good image host? the best free host i've found is here -- make an account for yourself and ask us if you don't understand how to generate an image link.

    Mneed an LJ code? please go here: codesharing

  • We are a co-motivational group. This means: no flaming, no
    dissing other people's works, and no catty shit in general.

    Please, keep in mind that without kinesic cues, internet communication tends to come across as a lot colder and harsher than face-to-face communication. Keep your jokes friendly.
    We don't really have to worry about this much, but hey, just in case.

    there are also a ton of communities for selling your work and advertising auctions, et c., which i'll put up later.

a note on auctions and selling:

i know lots of us make things to sell. it's fine if you post one or two auctions a month, but you may only post auction items which you have made yourself. more than one or two a month, and we will begin to consider this SPAM. transgress too often and you will be removed. sorry, i hate to be a rule nazi, but we're here to share ideas, and there are plenty of places to advertise your merchandise elsewhere.
