Default New rules for Avatar/Signature and Graphic Shop - ALL MUST READ - Updated 7/06/10

This area is for shops only.

If you already have a shop and it is over 1000 posts, please flag it so it can be closed prior to opening a new shop.

Titles must include your BI name, shop name, and offerings. The more specific your title, the more business you are likely to get.

You may create one graphics shop ONLY. After your first thread reaches 1000 posts, then you may create another thread and have your old one closed (they cannot be operating at the same time). If you open a duplicate thread, all of your shops will be closed and you will not be allowed to have a graphics thread.

You may chose to partner in a shop created by a friend in addition to the one of your own as long as you can keep up with the orders from both shops.

You may only have ONE friend helping at your shop.

If your shop closes due to inactivity, you must ask a staff member to reopen it as opposed to starting a new thread.


All graphics must be original - you may not use other members' images or images from other sites that have not been properly credited. If the original creator of the graphic is not known and the graphic appears to be commonly distributed, do not take credit for it.

You must also not use graphics that you do not have permission to use. A partial list can be found here although this list is NOT all inclusive. It is ultimately your responsibility to find out a graphics specific term of use.

Do not advertise your shop on another shop or any thread (including the DCT), profiles or in PMs. The only place you may advertise it is in your signature.

No polls may be added to any shops.

All orders should be acknowledged and taken in the order in which they are received. Consider giving an estimated time to delivery. No skipping orders.

No rude behavior will be tolerated. Some orders may take longer than others - be patient when placing an order.

No fighting between shops. This will result in both shops being closed pending admin review.

No hotlinking. You must use an image hosting site, like photobucket or tinypic.

Thank you.

I am really sorry! I got the graphics of mine from a website called mypagestyle.com. then the words are from this one family lobby place that I found from google! I am sorry! I thought the images looked so cool! I forgot to give credit. We learned about that in school the other day, but I thought that was for words, not pictures. I am really really sorry!!!

If thats what you want to do. Just let any staff member know and they'll shut them down for you.

What I usually tell people is..imagine YOU had created something. Wouldn't you want to be given credit for it? No need to be sorry. Part of all of this is an education process. I appreciate the fact that you've learned something and hope you'll think more about it in the future.

Great! Congrats on the original artwork! I'm sure you can really appreciate the new rules then.

I agree to these rules.
Although I'm not the best graphic maker so... I'm probably not going to be making an Avatar/Signature shop for a while.
Anyways.... thanks for the rule reminder.

Oh and one last thing if I get something from a site like if it has the name of the site already on it can I use those I wouldn't take cerdit anyway but I still would like to know.

This is an example of what I'm talking about...

Or...

Sorry took so long to answer. Yes, those are fine. Any generating site is specifically created to make graphics for you to use elsewhere. Its not that its a bad thing that they include their logo on there. Thats actually advertisement for them.

We just want to make sure you're not using artwork from a site that specifically states not to use it or redistribute it. We also want to make sure everyone is being honest about where they get their items from and not taking credit for something when its not due. Again, in those instances, theres no way for that to happen.
