These are my rules. They are simple. Please follow them.
1. Comment if you take something. Please.
I like knowing my stuff is going to good homes! :) It just
takes a second.
2. DO NOT HOTLINK TO THE IMAGES.
you need a host, please consider photobucket, Image Shack, Vulo Media or LJ Scrapbook
3. Credit is a must. Either to blumchenlayouts or blumchen is fine.
helps others find more of my work, and it's ALL I ask for in return.
4. I don't do requests. So don't ask.
I just really don't have the time. A whole layout can take up to several days! I've also worked on something only to have it discarded right away, which makes me feel used and unappareciated. If I had the time and felt like it would be appreciated, I would totally take requests. But I can't.
Do not ask for help on my personal journal.
If you need help, comment in the
entry with the layout you need help with, or a relevant post in THIS community and I will do my best to
assist you. Anywhere else and your comment will be ignored. It is quite rude to pester people in their journals or anywhere else just because you have a small problem, so don't ever come to my journal about anything to do with this community unless you're reporting theft..
6. Don't remove my watermarks!
that's just really, really rude and ungrateful! They're there, not as a copyright link, but to help others find my work. They need to stay.
Layout Modding (also known as edits)
This is my policy on layout modding. I will allow it if you ask me about it, if full credit is given in your userinfo & sidebar (if present) for my original coding. The layout must only be used by you. Do not use it to make layouts for your friends or your communities, do not make a design and redistribute the codes as your own, and do not ever claim that the work was all yours. I can sometimes spend hours with the codes, that's my hard work, and I'm being pretty lenient about this. I just want a link back to acknowledge my hard work. If you are caught disobeying, I will report you to layout_theft. Read my blacklist to see what happens with people I catch.
Do not ask for membership in my personal journal:.
Membership is open! Please follow my rules and
all will be well.
9. Please please PLEASE do NOT use the contact form on my WORK site
for ANYTHING other than commissions!.
This form is something I pay for and costs money. Using the form to
whine, ask for help, or anything else non-work related will make me rather angry and I will ban you immediately. So
DON'T DO IT. Whatever your problem is, my website is NOT the place to
be griping. I have places for you to contact me where I can help you, and that isn't one of them!
