FAQ: // Why was I rejected? (part 2)
I rejected you because you:
- didn't have any icons uplaoded at all.
- have no credit.
- credited "some xanga blog."
- have icons by "unknown makers" or people didn't want/need credit.
- once you've been rejected once, I won't accept you at all.
- having the keywords say "tell me if it's yours!" does not count.

- you were banned for a reason.

I don't see why I even set up the userinfo, it seems to just sit there. Has anybody ever read it? There's some useful information there.

If you asked a question 10 people have already asked, and I ignored them, why would you ask again expecting a reply? The rules are clear. I should not have to explain to you why you were rejected. It's not even that big of a deal.

I kinda feel special because I beat the odds. I took the best of the ideas I learned here, improved on them a bit, and managed to build my own solar panels that work out of surplus cells.

I've read the userinfo too and I don't get why I've been rejected. I know that I have two icons where I don't know who made them but I asked in the credits line to let me know who it was. So I guess it's because of that.

Strict rules I must say.

Hi, I was just wondering why I haven't been joined yet. I read the user info and previous entries, and made sure to have credit everywhere. I'd love to join, this looks like an awesome layout community. If there's something that I don't have, please let me know and I'll be more than happy to fix it. Thanks :)

Ohh okie dokie. When my account went from paid to free and than paid again all my keywords were gone so I had to go by memory. But everyone should be credited now :D

Ok, so I know why I was rejected, it was the two or three missing icon credits I'd forgotten about, they've been fixed. I'd still love to join if thats alright. I love your layouts.

I was rejected because I had 1 icon out of 109 that I didn't know who made it. I found that icon when I just joined LJ and didn't know what crediting meant - now I know.

I've tried to find out who made it but have had no luck.I'd have to go through 200 billion pages from 2004 to have any luck, and probably most have deleted them from their photobucket accounts anyway.

I wanted to join because you make the best Kevin Kline icons and I'd really like to see them and credit you. But I guess it just wasn't meant to be.

Hmm... I was rejected for reasons unknown. Every icon I own is credited to someone... I am really confused.

Oh well, doesn't matter. Just a bit weird that I was rejected for no reason at all.

I was rejected and I really don't know why. I have 1 icon out of 109 without credit; and that's only because I really don't know who made it. I put in the keywords for someone to let me know, but until then I really don't know.

I'd like to know why 1 icon is a reason to reject someone from this community, it seems pretty picky if you ask me.

I'm sorry if you think it's picky, but the rules cleary state that if any icons are without credit, then you won't be accepted.

I rejected you the first time because you had an icon without credit. I rejected you the second and third time because after I reject you once, I
reject you from now on.

In the future, please read the rules before you ask questions. The answers were already up there.

Regardless of who made it, if they asked for credit or not, when you found it, whatever. You had no credit for the icon so I rejected you.

Those comments are old. One of the people who corrected themselves and were later accepted into the community stole my icons anyway, and as a result, I have decided to reject people once and continue to rerject them to try and keep control of this place.

As a former icon maker, I would think that you would respect how I run my community and not bicker with me.

Yeah and people stole them and ran to other communities to get help editting them and the maintainers of those community got pissed at me and it was more trouble than it was worth so I stopped.

I have credit given for all my icons. The ones that don't credit another user are made by me. That's why they don't have credit.

Hello, I know you don't make layouts anymore, but I was hoping you could help me. I've seen some of your layouts around lj and they're really great, but how do you make the little credit box? 99% of the time when I make layouts for velvetsunshine I use Flexible Squares, and I searched the CSS code and I can't seem to find anything that would do that. Thanks for any help!

All you have to do is find a tutorial for adding extra boxes in FS, and use basic html to place the credit.

No, it isnt a big deal to be rejected.. and as far as im concerned this community is for elitists who need a reason to feel special. I can go right down to many of my other communities who arent so hard ass and get better icons, more tailormade to what I like. So, ciao and no, it isnt a big deal to be rejected, its just so immature and sad that rules have to be so strict. I mean, if youre that hard up for credit, maybe you should think twice about putting your artwork out there for free in a free blogging service. Just an idea.

I feel a bit sad for you and your works, honestly. I was really looking forward to joining this community and enjoy your stuff, but it seems impossible. I'm a person who ALWAYS credits EVERYTHING, because I know what it's like to be taken a work of yours without credit - it feels awful - and it makes me feel a bit down that I was rejected just because I mispelled the name of two makers (something that, btw, wasn't listed in your reasons list in this post). With all honesty I find your insecurity a bit counterproductive. But well, I don't know you.

Anyway, I must be thankful for your time for checking all my stuff and credits, and because you made me realize that I had some icons that had their usernames wrong.
