Please Read This Before Submitting Anything - Thanks! ^_^

1) What is an avatar and/or icon and what are they used for?

I use the terms avatar and icon interchangably, becuase to me they mean basically the same thing - an image (either still or animated) used to represent yourself in a forum, journal, or other online social website. These include (but aren't limited to) LiveJournal, deviantArt, MyAnimeList, Blogger, etc. Generally avatars are square in dimension and range in size from DA's 48 x 48 limit all the way up to 200 x 200.

Please Note: Right now I am not accepting non-square avatars into the group. However, if someone can show me a site that uses them, I'll be willing to consider it.

For more information about various avatar sizes, please take a look at this article: jobmob.co.il/blog/personal-ava…


2) Why don't you have a folder for "Name of Random Series"?

Probably because I haven't thought of it. :laughing: Or because there aren't enough icons for that series to have its own folder. :aww: If you're not sure where to put your icon, please feel free to submit it to the "Featured" folder. That might change in the future, but for now that's the best place to put it.


3) What if my avatar isn't anime-related?

It needs to be related to Asian art in some size, shape or fashion. Anime, Manga, Manhwa, Manhua, Japanese Games, etc. In fact, if anyone's interested in submitting any, I'll even allow (and make a section for) the OEL (or Ameri-manga) that Tokoypop was publishing (such as Dramacon or Bizenghast.)


4) I think I know which folder to submit my icon to...but I'm not sure. What should I do?

Take a quick look at the gallery (or galleries) where you think your avatar might belong. If there is one, read the gallery's description found on the left-hand side of the screen. If that still doesn't help, send me a message. I'm currently on DA everyday...and usually for at least several hours at a time. I promise to respond to your questions ASAP. :)


5) I have a base or a tutorial that I'd like to submit, but it's not strictly anime-related. Can I still submit it?

Of course! The rules are bent a bit for this category. As long as you've got a helpful tutorial or an awesome base that could theoretically be used to create an anime icon or avatar, then it will be welcome in the group. :D


6) I noticed that you've got an icon in a wrong folder. What should I do?

Please tell me! While I am an ANIME ADDICT, I can only keep so many series inside my head - stuff is bound to slip through. ^^; I want to be as organized as possible, so the sooner someone tells me, the sooner I can fix it. :D


7) Umm...you DO realize that Nyancat ISN'T Asian, right?

Eh heh... ^^; Yes I do...but the character is seeped in the uber-kawaii aspects of Japanese culture...so I've decided to accept Nyancat avatars, too. :giggle:

__________________________________________

I'm sure I'll think of other things y'all might want to know...but they're all slipping my mind right now. ^^; If you have any other questions, fell free to ask them here. :D

Hey there, everyone!  Just wanted to let y'all know I'm still alive. :laughing:

For starters, I wanted to give a big, "Hi there, how are you?!"  to all of our new members/watchers.  I love logging in to see that someone new has discovered my sleepy little group - it gives me a wonderful, warm, fuzzy feeling.  :heart:  :huggle:  

Second, I wanted to remind you that this group DOES accept submission suggestions.  So...if, in your DA wanderings, you come across any avatars you think should be featured here, please feel free to submit them.  :aww:  Just remember that any submissions you make WILL count towards your daily limit of 10, so choose wisely.  ;P

And finally, please don't forget about our "so-close" series.  They've ALMOST got their own folders, so lets try to give them the boost they need.  :D

Recent avatar submissions have created folders for both D Gray Man and Vampire Knight.  I love creating new folders, so that's just awesome sauce!  :boogie:


Here are the other series that are nearing their "Personal Folder" objective:

:bulletpurple: Skip Beat is only one avatar away.

:bulletpurple: Saiyuki, Gintama, Weiss Kreuz, and Wolf's Rain are ALL just 3 avatars away.

:bulletpurple: Fruits Basket is just 4 avatars away.

:bulletpurple: Rurouni Kenshin, Azumanga Daioh, Cowboy Bebop, K-ON, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Yotsuba are all half-way there, needing 5 avatars each.

And for anyone who wants to cater to some of my personally favorite fandoms....Fushigi Yugi and Gundam Wing both need 6 to get their own folders.  Also Escaflowne, Angel Sanctuary and Full Metal Panic all need 7.  :aww:

I've requested the addition of a few from artists around DA, but until I have at least 10, I can't give Bokura Ga Ita its own folder. :(

It really just depends on the software you have available...and what it is you're wanting to animate, of course. :aww: For free online gif makers, just type "free online gif animation" into Google and it should pull up a few different options. I think Gimp also has animation options, but I've never used it, so I'm not sure. :shrug: You can also do a Google search for "gif animation tutorial" which will give you a variety of options depending on the software you have access to. :)
