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!

Coding Challenge Rules


The RP Resources monthly coding challenges are just for fun, but there are a few rules you need to follow! Read on for our challenge guidelines and how this works.

■ You must use your own coding, of course. Code theft is not permitted in this comm.
■ Previously posted codes are not eligible for entry.
■ Your entries must fit the theme and code type.

On the first of every month we'll post a coding challenge with a theme and a code type (ex. Theme: Orange, Code Type: Biosheet.) You have the entire month to complete the challenge and post it to the community with the normal tags, plus code challenge: code. You may make as many entries as you like as long as they're submitted to the community before the first of the following month.

Every other month we will hold layout challenges in addition to our normal coding challenges.

These are just for fun but, to encourage participation, every six months we will hold community-wide voting on each maker's last six entries (or less, if you haven't participated in all of the past six months' challenges.) Voting should be based on each maker's output as a whole, so makers who have participated in more challenges will have more work to be judged on.

The winner* will receive an IJ coupon for the journal of their choice. The amount the coupon is worth will vary depending on how much we can afford to spend, so make sure to enter challenges if you like free coupons!

*Mods are exempt from prizes and, should a moderator win a voting round, they will forfeit their prize to second place.

Is there a screened dropbox where members could suggest themes or challenges? If not, could I maybe suggest putting one up? >.>

Using the regular dropbox is fine, just point out that they are suggestions and we'll add them to our list.
