Mod Announcement

Hello!

this is warmhearted, mod at britneyicons. I have recently purged all deleted members from this community, and to protect icon makers, membership is now moderated. If your request was rejected, please see the lj-cut.


Your membership request was rejected for one or more of the following:
1) none of your icons are credited, or most are not.
2) your lj is very new, you have very little or no friends, or all of your "friends" are just communities
3) you barely make any comments, or in fact have made no comments at all.
4) your lj is a role-playing lj or a community-watch lj

if in fact you are new to the lj-world, please wait a little bit until you request to join. You can attempt to join as many times as you want, but if you are rejected, please look at this as towards one of the reasons why.

I have been rejecting quite a few entries here. I dont mean to offend anybody but please read after the cut over the reasons why a post might be rejected.


reasons to reject a post:
1. NUMBER ONE, IMPORTANT ONE: your post is a fake lj cut or a link to your community. All you posted here was 3 icons to take people from here to where-ever it is you want to take them.remember people join here to look at icons here, you may ask people to credit your community, rather than your LJ name, but please no outside links.
2. Spam. you want to promote your new community, whatever it is.
3. questions. I am sorry but we are not a HTML help community, and while we may want to know too where to download the latest britney spears album, it doesn't belong here :\

I will also periodically remove members from the members list if their accounts have been inactive for ages, or they simply don't credit their icons.

Icon-makers, if you see someone using your icons, with no credit, and they got it from here, let me know, I will ban them.

Cheers,
Emmy

PS. if you were remove, dont be offended, just re-apply. if you are rejected again, please see if you qualify for one of the reasons why a membership request gets rejected.

well. a while ago, I visited britneyexperts.com and I saw them use my and other iconmakers icons posted up there but they asked their viewers to credit britneyexperts without permission. And I don't know who is the ljmember is or what his/her accountname is but yeah, I don't like them using my icons without asking or saying so (I hope you still understand me :P)
since i dont know who it is, i dont know who to ban. but hopefully when the purging ends, they will be one of the members deleted.
I've seen people using icons from here all over the place..including youtube.
I haven't paid much thought to it..would you like me to in the future?
I love your icon. :)

It's good that this type of thing is moderated.People put a lot of hard work into their icons and deserve to be credited!

Deleted comment

none of your icons are credited.

we are having a hard time with deciding, because while you did credit, it was to the community and not to the actual credit markers.... we will accept but next time please credit the creditmakers, not this community :)

I am sorry but I can not validate that since I don't have proof... and you prob. disabled communities on your page, so I do not know if you belong to a icon-stealing community. I am not accusing you of anything dear, but I want to be safe than sorry and protect the people who post here :)

You will continue to be rejected until your icons are credited. Please apply at some later time :)

hello

we work on a "better to be safe than be sorry", so with you, we were ambiguous, but decided to reject for fear of the unknown. However, if you reapply, we will accept you since you do technically meet all qualifications. This community once had many graphic stealers or people who simply did not bother to respect icon makers' rules, so we adopted hard rules in order to prevent that to happen in the future. We hope you can understand that...

when we accept/reject someone, we need to see some kind of "proof" that they do credit. We did see that the icons you have seem to be made by you, but we notice the britney graphic in your user info was uncredited, and that led to the decision.

first off, happy birthday! :)

2nd, my colleague must have look at your graphics since it was available when i first looked at it. we have a tough rule here of 100% icons must be credited in order to get in (or most if you have lets say 100 userpics). Its not you, its just that we are here to protect icon-makers (years ago, we had many stealers who post at icon-stealing communities, and no one wanted to post here out of fear), and we don't know where the other graphics came from, thus we reject.

But I have accepted, so welcome and have a good time here :)

hi i just joined and am waiting to be given membership. i just wanted to clear up one thing. ive been on LJ for like 5 years now but i just recently deleted all my friends and am in the process of getting new ones, just because most of the friends i had became unactive and things like that. so i just wanted to clear that up for the whole "having a small number of friends" thing because i really want to join this community =]
Hi!
I love Britney and was just wondering do I have to be a member to veiw your icons?
X
had an account a while ago that i viewed this community on. slightly new again (new email, new lj :/) and cannot for the life of me remember my old account. anyway, adored the icons back then, and look forward to digging them again now.
Hi! I'm not really sure if it's the right way to do it... I wanted to join the community, but as you can see my LJ have been created only a month ago. The reason is that I switched my LJ and was before "http://sokash.livejournal.com". Don't worry, I will credit any icons I take from this community, simply because I make a lot of icons and I know how irritating it is to see people taking your icons without crediting... Anyway, I hope it is ok for me to join this community (and apologize for the mistakes I could have make, I'm French, it's not the best excuse, but it can explain my weak English ^^).
hello.
i've been trying to join the community.
i removed all the icons that didn't have credit. i post plenty of comments.
is it because of friends or something else?
please let me know:)
I am new to LJ but I hope you guys approve me! Gotta let someone start somewhere! And I always credit! :)
why am i being declined? my old account was approved but i made this new journal and i am being declined? :|
because its only 3 days old, and anyone can say they had an old account approved... but irregardless, your account is still too new.

sorry babe.
Ok, but my old account was approved it's "bottlepop-x" you can check it out if you don't believe me. Ok, i'll wait a couple of weeks before applying again. it's all good! : )
Hi :) I tried to joined this community twice before, but I was rejected. I think it has to do with me not having any friends and I would like to explain why I don't have any friends. I'm using Live Journal for a journal(that's just for me) and a place to interact in different communities.

Is that okay? Cause, if so, I'd like to try and join again.

Thanks so much for your time.
-Adrianne
hey, this LJ isn't even that new, actually, but in case you think 4 months old is still a bit new, I'm not actually a new member -- just someone with a new journal. my oldest journal that I haven't deleted is http://cosmicdiglett.livejournal.com/profile. you can check that one if you'd like. :)

also I'm aware I don't have a lot of friends but, well, I only really friend people I know in real life.

please take my application into consideration. :) thanks!
Question: Can I share icons here that I made for a challenge community?
yes :)

Screened comment

if they are found on random britney sites, it doesn't take away from the fact that some icon maker made them... and they should be given credit.

I myself have 3 icons who's icon makers I dont know, but I acknowledged that fact in my userpics, and I try to stay away from icons who are credit-less.

Sorry babe.

Why was I rejected? I credit all my icons, my journal's not new, I have plenty of friends, I've made tons of comments, and I'm not an RP/Community-Watch journal.
I would like to be re-added please. I don't make icons, but I'm good at crediting when credit is due.
I would like to join this community :D
I love to make icons!
Please accept me! ^^
