RULES:

GRAPHIC MAKERS:
While we fully encourage you to display your artistic abilities, we do have a few rules in place. First and foremost, all SS Board Rules apply, no exceptions. Please pay particular attention to the graphics section of the rules, as well as the rules about harassment, plagiarism and spamming.

First Thread: There are a few special rules to keep in mind in regards to the very first thread of your shop:
  • All header images cannot exceed 450 pixels in width and 200 pixels in height
  • Please state clearly in the very first line whether you are taking requests, making grab bags or both
  • Please also state what kind of images you are willing to make (avatars, signatures, profile pictures, banners, wallpapers)
  • Please state the rules of your thread in this first post
  • Displaying examples of your work is encouraged but you can display a maximum of five examples in the first post. If you want to add more, please put these under a photocut or a spoiler tag:
    [photocut=la dee da]images go here[/photocut]
    [spoiler=la dee da]images go here[/spoiler]
  • Please note that any examples that are bigger than the SS requirements should always be under a tag

Image Sizes: Here on SS, we have a few rules in regards to the size of the images you can create, especially those that are going to be used around the site. They are as follows:
  • Avatars: 100 x 100 pixels, 20kb
  • Signatures: 450 x 200 pixels, 60kb
  • Profile Pictures and Bio Pics: 350 x 350 pixels, 60kb
  • GIFs: 350 x 350 pixels, 60kb; we do accept using gifs for requests or as a reaction image but please make sure that they’re under the above requirements. This is because GIFs tend to be much heavier and this makes it difficult for those with slower internet connections to load pages and can be detrimental to the site’s speed as a whole. Larger sized GIFs should be linked to your own image hosting account

Plagiarism: Plagiarism is when you use someone else’s work and/or ideas and pass it off as your own/don’t give proper credit. This also includes altering someone else’s graphics or redoing a graphic someone else has made for you. This is not allowed on SS at all, no exceptions. If you are caught plagiarising, you will be severely punished.

Absences: If you know you’re going to be away for a while, please make sure to contact a Gladrags mod who’ll temporarily close your shop so that you don’t return to a large number of requests. Alternatively, you can also post within your shop and say that you’re going to be absent for a while.

Inactivity: Sometimes, real life happens. Sometimes creative blocks happen. While that’s completely understandable, we do have a policy in regards to inactivity: any shop that has been inactive for 2 months will be closed and moved to the Catalogue Collection. If you want to reopen the thread, please make sure to contact one of your Gladrags mods who will reactivate your thread.


Finally, we ask you to please be respectful to everyone who uses this forum. If you have any questions or concerns, please make sure to contact one of your Gladrags mods and we’ll be happy to help you out.



REQUESTING MEMBERS:
First and foremost, all SS Board Rules apply, no exceptions. Please pay particular attention to the graphics section of the rules, as well as the rules about harassment, plagiarism and spamming.

In terms of requesting, there are a few other rules to keep in mind:
  • Please make sure you read the first post of each shop so that you know the rules of that graphic maker. They can differ between threads so this is particularly important.
  • Please do not request the same thing across multiple shops. Not only is it incredibly rude, but it also makes the graphic designer feel as though you do not trust their judgement. Just don’t do it
  • When including images, please make sure they are SS appropriate. This includes no swear words and nothing provocative
  • Please be patient when requesting something. It may take some time for them to get to you, especially if they are popular and/or have other things going on
  • However, if it has been over a month since your request has been given to you and/or since you've heard from the graphic maker, you're allowed to go elsewhere with the request
  • Please do not edit and/or have someone else edit the work of another graphic maker
  • Please make sure to credit the member who has made your graphic

Finally, we ask you to please be respectful to everyone who uses this forum. If you have any questions or concerns, please make sure to contact one of your Gladrags mods and we’ll be happy to help you out.



EVERYONE:
Something important we want to bring to your attention is the topic of image hosting. There are a few image hosting sites out there but the ones we highly recommend are:
  • postimages.org: This site is specifically designed as an image hosting service for forum sites. They have a staff that search through the images themselves so anything that's not appropriate for them will definitely not be appropriate for site. Also, you can upload images and link it to SS without having an account but it's recommended to create an account in case you lose things.
  • nickpic.host: This site has an almost social media feel to it in the sense that people can like your images and you can keep a track of them. There's also a feature where you can search for graphics and textures that other people have put up and put up some of your own as well. So, if you're into that, this might be the better option for you.

Please pick one of the above sites or, if you prefer any alternatives (imgur being another example), then you can use them as well. However, please make sure to use your own image hosting account.


Finally, have fun and happy graphicating!

Default Image Hosting Changes
Magikarp #3 | Pat's Strong Confident Other Half | Pees Like a Champion Unicorn Racehorse

ANNOUNCEMENT!
From watermarks to blurring out images completely and even a full shutdown, there have been some recent changes in terms of image hosting sites. Whether you're aware of these changes or not, we, your Gladrags team, want to keep you as up to date on these changes as possible. Below contains information on said changes as well as ways we can move forward:

IMAGE HOSTING NEWS:
Two years ago, Photobucket changed its services and have started becoming a paid service for image hosting. Very recently, its sister site, tinypic, has announced that it cannot support a free service and will therefore be shutting down. That's right, tinypic will no longer be in use after 2019.

So what do we do? For those of you using tinypic, our best suggestion would be to transfer your images to another image hosting site (listed below) and start using one of those, instead. For those of you still using Photobucket, please make sure to check your images and start adopting one of the alternatives as well.


ALTERNATIVES:
Need a new image hosting site? We have got you covered! Here are the options taken straight from the Welcome to Gladrags thread:
