[FAQ] Why was I rejected and/or banned?
Main reasons why users are rejected or banned:


  • You keep joining but fail to follow the rules.
    Sorry but if you can't adhere to the simple rules of crediting we cannot allow you to join due to past issues with people redistributing graphics.

  • You have what seems to be a "fake" journal.
    This is becoming more rampant on lj and usually is due to the individual trying to hide from something. Unfortunately it causes suspicions and therefore may be cause for rejection.

  • Your username has been reported in theft communities for theft.
    This will usually get you rejected and banned as we do not want our icon makers having their icons possibly stolen and/or redistributed.

    If you have any questions concerning why you were rejected or banned and still can't figure out why please leave a comment here and I will get back to you.

    edit: Stop bitching when you're rejected. It's clear in the userinfo, I'll approve you if I see that there is credit in all your icon keywords or icons comments. If you don't do that, you're not getting accepted. Don't comment here or at my personal journal or email me and throw a fit. It's getting old.

    Hi... I know this is a litte bit out of place, but I was wondering if you knew how to insert a header into your Bluetiful component style. I've tried all kinds of tutorials on component_help, but I just can't understand it. If you have any help, like code or even just pointers, it would be a great help. Thanks a million

    Find this in your user layer:

    #################################

    #    ROUNDED NAVIGATION BAR     #

    # overrides page_layout(Page p) #

    #################################

    function page_layout(Page p) {

      # Set this to the width that you want both the navbar (if it exists) and the whole journal to be

      # may be percentage (70%) or number of pixels (700px).

      var string k1Swidth      = "70%";

      var string k1Sheader_url = ""; # optional header image url

      var string k1Sheader_alt = ""; # optional header image alt text


    And place the url of the header you want between the quote marks. :)

    No prob! I just revamped the site and I'm going to start gettting the site listed in other places so hopefully you'll get some hits!

    Don't you do layouts for another community or am I confusing you with someone else? :P

    Just so I'm clear I have 52 icons, 20 are made by me (indicated by "me"), and 18 are credited to other people. That leaves 12 out of 52 that are unknowns. My layout, the graphic for my layout, and my emoticons are fully credited so lighten up.

    Hmmm Can you tell me why I was declined please? (Having looked at the comments on this post, I am assuming that the MADDY picture which had no credit is the reason ..but that is just a photo of one of my dogs ... a photo that *I* took and resized...)

    i credit when a maker asks for credit,
    so i'm guessing because i have one entry? :]

    i have no life on the weekends, so it'll never get updated then. but every school day, the boring account is there.

    Hi, I was rejected, and just wanted to say - I left out a few credits on my icon comments/keywords, but they were all in my userinfo, so I wasn't trying to steal them or anything. I'm not bitching at you at all, as I completely understand (as obviously I didn't read your rules properly! sorry!) but I wanted to comment as I'd hate to have a name as a thief. They're in both places now, so I've applied to join again if that's okay.

    I counted 11 unknowns, and to me that's the same as no credit.

    Hello, I requested to join the other day and was rejected. I double checked the rules again and double checked all my graphics and they all have credit. I was just wondering why it was that I was declined? Thank you for your time.

    I was declined membership and I was wondering why? I have 62 icons and all but 3 do not have credit..and that is because I don't know who made them. And it isn't for my lack of trying to find out who made them.

    Just wondering.

    hello, i didn't know whether i should email you about this or not, but i'll just put it here for now.

    I recently changed journals from fueledbybridie, which was the account i was a member here on, on that account i emailed you for one of your layouts, & now i've changed accounts, i've used it, & edited it a bit, is that ok? I've still left the credit in.

    I'm just about to join on this account.

    Also, i have a question about the layout i emailed you for, shall i post it here when you reply, email you, or is there a special post for questions about your layouts? thanks.
