[greyday is your community moderator]
Yes, this is a lengthy intro. PLEASE do take time to read it over before joining. You'll be expected to know and understand what's stated below. Thanks!
Are you looking for icons? Perhaps you even have a special icon request?
Or perhaps you're an icon-maker and would like to share your work?
Have icons that just don't seem to 'fit' other icon communities?
This community is open to all types of icons. There is no such thing here as a 'bad' icon. We are not anti any form of icon.
HOWEVER, if your icon is adult in nature or of a questionable nature (there's a good chance people might be offended by it), you are asked to please place it behind an lj-cut tag. (When in doubt feel free to ask.)
Those considering joining should be aware that there may be some adult content here -- icons that have text of an adult nature (or which feature slash -- same-gender -- images-and/or-text-content). Though members are encouraged to place such icons behind the lj-cut tag, it's possible you might be exposed to these from time to time.
If you think you might be offended, please DON'T join.
Flaming (nasty crap) won't be put up with for one minute. (Trust me on that one.)
The use of the lj-cut tag is both essential and REQUIRED here for:
Basically I'm out to avoid things that are too large to display easily for our community members -- which usually has to do with how far things extend from left to right.
For a simple guide on HOW to use the lj-cut, please read THIS.
This community does not have the expectation that those who use the icons shared here will post the name of the icon creator (icon maker) inside their icon keywords -- or on their profile/bio page.
In other words, if you expect a person to do so in exchange for sharing your icons, this is the WRONG community for you.
(There are, however, several icon communities that do require this -- so please feel free to share your icons there. There's always a perfect community for each of us, luckily!)
NOTE: That said, naturally we'd LOVE to see those who use the icons shared here to strongly consider giving credit where credit is due.
Which can include adding the creator's name to their icon (picture) keywords, making mention of the creator in a journal Entry (and adding that entry to their personal Memories), passing the word about an excellent icon creator and so on!
NOTE: Please don't LINK to icons that you aren't posting here inside the community. These posts will be automatically deleted.
(I personally think it goes without saying that if you're not posting the icons directly to this community there's really no point in your posting here as an icon maker, period.)
Needless to say (I should hope), it is very considerate to post a comment when you're taking an icon posted here. Again, it's not required -- but it's both polite and decent of a user to do so! And, again, I think it's also nice to mention the icon creator inside an entry at your journal. (And add that Entry to your Memories where others can easily locate it.)
Again, these are not necessary, but are certainly thoughtful and mature gestures!
The idea here is to share and have fun. I hate including all these 'regulations,' but I prefer everyone knows up front what's acceptable. Of course your questions and suggestions are more than welcome! Come join and post these...
Please refrain from requesting LJ codes here or 'advertising' your own community here. There are appropriate communities for these -- but this isn't one of them.
