Premade Graphics Rules

Recommended Posts

abhorsen.

We've been asked by multiple members to create an area for people to request graphics on HPFT. One of our main hesitations in doing so was having a lot of requests sitting around for ages; that's not an issue with a Premade section, so once a member suggested a good solution for the requesting section, we decided to go along with this as well.

Please keep in mind that graphics may not exceed HPFT's target rating (T) - no nudity, no serious blood and gore, keep in mind what profanity is rated T or below.

 

How To Offer Graphics:

  • Anyone with any leftover graphics they've made can post a thread here.
  • Artists should create one thread per graphic type in each section - e.g., one thread for banners, one thread for chapter images, and one thread for picspams in story graphics. Please do not create more than one thread per graphic type.
  • The thread title should include your username and the graphic type.
  • Be sure to list the rules for your individual thread in your initial post, including what sites your graphics can be used on, whether you're willing to make any changes, whether people can claim even if you're not around (e.g., claim a banner and use the existing text), and other relevant information.
  • Because we have a limited editing window, please copy and paste the remaining available graphics in replies as you fill requests, rather than getting the initial post edited each time. You are welcome to double post if you have graphics to add.
  • If you're willing to make changes, please do so in a timely manner (i.e., 1-2 weeks).
  • If at any time you wish your thread to be closed or edited, please contact a staff member.
     

Categorisation of Graphics:

  • Story Graphics: Banners and Chapter Images
  • Forum Graphics: Signatures, Icons, Blinkies
  • Other Graphics: Headers & Dividers, Picspams, Award Graphics, Desktop Wallpapers

 


 

How to Request Graphics:

  • You may only post in an artist's thread directly to claim a graphic.
  • You may not claim multiple graphics for use in one place - so, for example, you could not claim two HPFT banners for the same story, because you can only use one at a time. Repeatedly being rude, refusing to use claimed graphics, or refusing to credit the graphics (either on HPFT or elsewhere) will result in the staff barring you from using the area for a period of time.
  • If an artist is taking awhile to fill a request or you find a better fit elsewhere, you're welcome to make a polite post in the artist's thread telling them you've decided to look elsewhere.
  • Forum graphics can be used by multiple people and do not require claims (though you must credit them).
  • Use the following form when claiming graphics:
     
Quote

Story and Author Name, including link: [if you don't have a link yet, let the artist know; they may allow you to reserve the graphic for a period of time and/or let you claim it anyway]

Graphic:

Sites you intend to use the graphic on:

Any changes you'd like: [please respect the artist's rules on this]

 

If you're unsure about the various graphics terms used, head on over to the Glossary+ page!

Would Divider/Header sets go under "Premade Forum Graphics" with the Signature sets or would they go into "Other Premade Graphics"?

Headers can go into the "Other" section while the "Forum" section is for signature sets, icons, blinkies and the like. Thanks for bringing this up - I'll be editing the first post to outline the kinds of graphics that can go into each of the sections. :)

Can Desktop wallpaper be considered for the "Other Premade Graphics" section?
