Community Rules

This comm is open to anyone to post codes, layouts, resources, tutorials, and requests for help and content. Of course, we do have some rules, so please read through them before jumping in; thank you!

Treat others the way you'd like to be treated. This is not a drama comm, and we expect you guys to be awesome and stay civil. If a situation gets out of hand, please contact a mod, and leave comments intact so we can accurately handle the situation.

Please tag your posts and check out the tagging guide if you have any questions!

■ Very long posts or posts formatted with your own div styling for organization should be behind a cut to save people's f-lists.

Work safe above the cut, please!

■ If posting codes, guides, etc. absolutely do not post content that you did not make. That's stealing, and it's super uncool, bro! If you are posting expanded/edited codes made by yourself using another user's coding as well, please be sure you have their permission (You do not need direct permission if they allow edits to be re-posted in their blanket rules.)
■ Do not post tutorials/links to tutorials that show people how to steal codes from other users. Again: Stealing. Not cool.
When asking for help with something, please check the help tags (help: coding, help: graphics, help: icons, help: layouts, help: other) first to see if your question has already been posted and answered to avoid duplicates.

We do not allow game ads to be posted on this comm since there are so many communities specifically for that already; if you're pimping a game as an addition to a regular post, that's fine. (OK: You post an RP code and mention in the post, oh hey, also I'm running this game! NOT OK: Posts dedicated to game promo.)

We do allow other types of community promos if they are related to RP (icon comms, other types of resource comms, etc.) Just shoot us a comment in our dropbox beforehand and we'll let you know if it's cool to post!

Admin Console Quicksheet


[info]tessisamess
[info]rpresources
The documentation for the Admin Console isn't the greatest, and the stuff that is listed is formatted in a way that can be confusing, so here's a cheat sheet for the most common things it's used for! This is in no way an exhaustive list, but I felt most of the things I left out probably are used rarely, if at all.

Cheat sheet! )

hello! i wasn't sure where else to ask, so i'm hoping someone here might have some knowledge that could help me! i recently upgraded my 8 year old macbook pro to a brand new one, and ever since then i've had issues making icons look the way they normally look whenever i make them. i know that the retina display makes everything look different, but it's starting to get really annoying whenever i have to brighten my icons beyond recognition so that they don't upload super dark and desaturated on ij. is there a fix for this? i never know what my icons actually look like because they look different on each of my devices

Hi everyone.

By now most people are at least a little aware of the issue with Mandy/Ink/Maric etc. I've been in contact with her family, but there's not much else they can do for her at this point. Lately, Ink has been mentioning members of the insanejournal community in their journal-posts and have started throwing around really terrible, delusional and untrue accusations about people and I'm worried about how much that'll escalate.

If you'd like to preemptively ban them from your personal journal or your community, there's a friends-locked entry at my journal which will allow you to do so. please comment here and I'll add you. This will be updated as soon as I'm made aware of new journals that she registers.

If you suspect someone of being Ink, you can comment on [this post] and I'll investigate it and add it to the list. Comments are turned off on this post to make sure no one is publicly misidentified.

If you also play on dreamwidth or livejournal, moderate games or need more information about Ink's journals, a landing page with details has been created over at [info]safetymeasure. You can comment there and the admins of the page will add you when they can.

To be clear, Ink mentions several family members and minors (by their full name) on their journals which are also filled with a lot of triggering material which is the reason all of these resources are friends-locked. We want to do what we can to protect Mandy's family as best we can.

Please contact me if you need more details or have or want any information.

So I have looked at several faux celeb comms, and their requirements and the like over the years, and those that aren't faux celeb but allow it, and I still don't really get how it works. I know one of the answers is 'however you want it to work' of course, but I don't know how I want it to work, if I want it to work differently to the comms or do the same or... well, anything.

Things I am particularly wondering about - why do most games have all musician credits but frown on using all the same credits for an actor?

How do you decide which credits to use and not use for actors? Obviously if someone is seeking a particular role that's one thing, but say you're setting up a character independently or trying to work out the other credits?

But really, any help would be great.

My super old version of Photoshop isn't compatible with the newest OS on my Mac :,( RIP Photoshop. RIP my icon making.

Does anyone have a good tutorial for Gimp? I downloaded it last night, but I'm having trouble figuring out how to do shit with it. I will also accept recs for other free/cheap alternatives to Photoshop.

(01.09.2020 - The tutorial has been edited to cover a much simpler method of doing this.)

So, I wanted to do the thing and couldn't find a tutorial. Therefore, I poked it until I figured out how to do it myself and decided to share the results. Click here for a guide on using custom styles to host html pages on insanejournal.

(For a similar concept which works on free accounts, check out this nifty tutorial by [info]autumndufresne.)

I've gone through and set "disable custom comment pages" to "No" and haven't - as far as I know - touched anything else that would relate in an obvious way to this issue. However, even with custom comment pages enabled on my journal, I'm getting "?style=mine" placed into the links for number of comments on a post. Which, yeah, works fine for me, but anyone else who views will get their own journal layout or the generic IJ post layout depending if their account is free or paid (I tested this with one of my free accounts and confirmed).

Since I know it can be stopped - this community's layout doesn't tack "?style=mine" into the comment page urls, for example - I'm hoping someone can tell me how to stop it. I initially thought it might be related to enabling the navstrip on my journal, but disabling it didn't fix the issue when testing.

So, strange question, but I've noticed in S2 Complete Style that the tag view pages - where you go when you click on a specific tag - don't get along well with symbols. For example, the header says "Posts Tagged: '%21%5Breference%5D'" when viewing the tag ![reference]. Is there a way to fix this with custom styling? And if not, can someone provide instructions for fixing it within the layers of a paid/perm account?

Follow the hyperlink!!

It's easier for me to just take the comments on this post than repost the thing for three different comms every time I have to update.

Okay, so ever since iPhone updated to 13.2, it has messed replying from email up. I was using VM Boxer and it worked fine up till the update ( It had to have one since iPhone updated). I don't mind the dark mode, it's easier on the eyes, but I can no longer reply from my email. Does anyone know a work around for this? Or even a new email app if it comes down to it. I'm willing to work with anything as long as I can reply from my email again.

Thank you in advance.

Hi, I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to keep a layout code from being applied to the fp? I like how it makes the journal look, but the fp view is unbearable to me.
