FAQ  
Please reply to this post with any questions you may have.


What if my claim has many different mediums? (Ie. It's an anime and manga, or j-drama, or a combination of several?)
You can choose one specific medium, like HanaKimi [MANGA], or you can choose HanaKimi [GENERAL] which would be the manga and any of it's other incarnations. One person could have [MANGA], but [ANIME] be open, which would mean you could claim [ANIME].

Can more than one person have the same claim?
No. See above for ways around people having the same claim. This means two people can't both claim Death Note [MANGA] for example.

Can I post icons for past themes?
No. That goes against the point of the community! However! When we have a Artist's Choice theme, you MAY use a past theme you missed or one you liked. This is the only exception to this rule.

For Artist's Choice, Can I pick anything theme?
Yes. It might be nice to include which past theme you decided to use so people can tell where you got your inspiration from!

How long are prompts open?
Themes will now be open for 48 hours. A post will made once a day, but for people who need a little more time, the time allowed has been changed from 24 to 48 hours. But.. if you are a little bit off due to some type of circumstance (ie. Internet was down, out of town, etc) it's not that big of a deal, just put in your comment to the entry your reason for posting too late. Themes that you have missed by a long-shot can always be made up on the Artists' Choice theme. Also, we will be posting from CST, This may be a handy reference if you are worried about time zones.

Can you submit more than one icon per claim on Artist's Choice day? [As in, cover multiple themes in one shot.]
Just like any other theme, you can submit one icon per claim to count towards your total. However, you can make extra icons such as variations of an icon as an extra bonus but they will not count towards your total icon count. The Artist's Choice is really just a replacement as a normal theme for the maker's convenience~

Do I have to make an icon post?
No, it's optional but it is strongly suggested! It doesn't have to be right away, so feel free to take your time.

I have two claims: Do I have to post for both for a specific theme?
No. If you only have time for one icon, or you just aren't feeling the theme working with one of your claims, it is perfectly fine to just post for one. If you change you mind, you can just re-comment with your other claim.

Can I finish my old daily_icon claim?
Many of us were mid-claim when daily_icon went on a hiatus that never ended, so... Possibly-- if you are interested. We'll work it out some way if you would like to do that. Please just let us know!

Does it HAVE to be a TV series? I wanted to do a claim totally unrelated to television.
Kaurinkaurin on September 16th, 2008 02:25 am (UTC)
Nope, it can be about anything you want it to be if you can make icons of it. Bands, Artists, anything. We can make it work~ What were you wanting to do?

Just randomly being an arse and pointing out that you spelled "exception" wrong in Q3.

But, to make this more useful... How long are prompts open? Must you submit to a prompt within 24 hours of its posting, or is it open for a few days? Just calculating logistics. Devil's Advocate
Kaurinkaurin on September 16th, 2008 02:44 am (UTC)
Thank you. XD I should never type in wordpad, ever.

In general, 24 hours, or until the next theme is posted, which should be each day. Hence, Icon a Day~ But.. if you are a little bit off due to some type of circumstance (ie. Internet was down, out of town, etc) it's not that big of a deal, just put in your comment to the entry your reason for posting too late. Themes can always be made up on the Artists' Choice theme.

Re; Q5: time differences are totally going to come along and bite you in the butt. XD
gravity_xx on May 1st, 2009 12:29 pm (UTC)
Would a claim of a group of four people be alright? And if so, how would that work? Would all four people need to be in every icon, or could I do two in one icon and three in another as long as all of the characters are equally represented?
Kaurinkaurin on May 1st, 2009 01:50 pm (UTC)
Sure, that would be fine. They don't all have to be in the icon so long as long as your group is pretty evenly represented, it is no problem~
insaneboingo: Cary Grant: flawless beautyinsaneboingo on May 3rd, 2009 03:38 am (UTC)
I have a question:

Will a person be notified if their claim has been rejected?
Kaurinkaurin on May 3rd, 2009 04:00 am (UTC)
I can't think of any reason for a claim to be rejected except if someone wanted something already claimed. But in theory, yes, I would reply with the reason why their claim was denied and give them the option to change it.

I've just been a bit slow lately. My apologizes. I added your claim. :3

Are animated icons allowed or only stills?
Kaurinkaurin on May 3rd, 2009 05:11 pm (UTC)
Animated is fine.
Bakang Batugan: Hopefulkyoy on May 14th, 2009 03:51 am (UTC)
Quite unrelated, but may I know the fonts used in the layout banner please?
Kaurinkaurin on May 14th, 2009 04:15 am (UTC)
Haha, still an important question! They are Budmo Jiggler and Claudia~! I love them both very much!

trading secrets for sugar cubes: [Stock] Foxesfinnickodair on January 23rd, 2010 08:57 pm (UTC)
I was wondering if there was any sort of rating limit on icons for either images or text?
Kaurinkaurin on January 24th, 2010 06:33 am (UTC)
Like content rating? Neither tassyn or I have a problem with anything, so you are basically free to do whatever you want by us. If you want you can just post a link to the image instead of posting the icon itself to the submissions post.
Harumi: L ; giant lolly :3advanceinsane on August 29th, 2010 12:20 pm (UTC)
Umm, I was wondering... if you claim an OTP would it be alright to make icons of both characters seperately as well? Or how would that work?
Amanda-Pandatwirl_madly on May 19th, 2011 03:51 am (UTC)
That's fine. You can make icons of the characters together or separately so long as the icon is centered on one of them.

I apologize for the EXTREME lateness of this reply.
Samantha Sneedprincesslacus on November 28th, 2010 05:01 am (UTC)
Can the icon have another character besides the one you claimed in it, say if it helps portray to a theme? Of if other characters are in the background but not the main focus?
Amanda-Pandatwirl_madly on May 19th, 2011 03:52 am (UTC)
That's fine. You can have other characters in an icon as long as the icon centers on your claimed subject.

I apologize for the EXTREME lateness of this reply.
I'm a balancing force of maturity... Or not  ;): gryff-cannonserinm_4600 on May 19th, 2011 03:43 am (UTC)
Clarification please
Is there some procedure for going on hiatus, if we know ahead of time?

I'll be out of town next week, with limited Internet access.

Thanks!
Amanda-Pandatwirl_madly on May 19th, 2011 03:49 am (UTC)
Re: Clarification please
No. As long as you post once every 50 themes you can keep your claim.

Ficklefickle_goddess on June 24th, 2011 03:20 am (UTC)
Can I go on hiatus indefinitely, please? My old laptop suddenly died about a month ago, I've been using my mother's (which only has MS Paint) in the meantime, and my new laptop won't arrive for a bit and even when it does, I'll need to save up for a bit to afford Photoshop again. ^^;;
Amanda-Pandatwirl_madly on June 25th, 2011 02:27 am (UTC)
I can't offer an indefinite hiatus, but I can offer a 4 month grace period due to extreme circumstances.
I'm a balancing force of maturity... Or not  ;): bttferinm_4600 on October 20th, 2011 03:23 am (UTC)
I have a question!

Can we make animated icons? Or try to, anyway?
Amanda-Pandatwirl_madly on October 20th, 2011 02:31 pm (UTC)
Absolutely! Go for it.

dance with those lions: crash2dance_the_dance on February 21st, 2012 07:01 pm (UTC)
What are the rules re: Celebrity claims? Is it okay to sometimes icon characters they have played? Of course not always, otherwise I would just claim the characters, not the celebrity. :P

(I edited out the second claim from my comment, because I'm not sure if I want the other tv show or a celeb as my second claim.)
iconadaymodiconadaymod on February 21st, 2012 07:23 pm (UTC)
It's a bit of a grey area. There is nothing wrong with iconing characters they have played. I have asked in the past, however, that you try to limit that as much as possible. At the very least, do not concentrate on one role.

Hope that helps
