Rules & Guidelines

Credit me, please. If you use the icons or codes I make, please credit me. I usually have a little screencap at the top of the icon batch to show you how you can do it or I include the credit in the code. If you tweak the code beyond the original, please credit me for the base code.

Comment if you want to. Leaving a comment isn't necessary, but it is appreciated. People that make things, whether it'a simple icon or a complicated painting, like to know their work is appreciated now and then.

Don't hesitate to ask a question. If you screwed up, want to know if you can Do A Thing, etc., just simply leave a comment on the entry or leave it in the welcome box above. I am always happy to help you and if I can't personally, I might be able to point you to someone who can.

Read thoroughly & be courteous. As a rule of thumb, be nice and polite. If you're gonna act like an asshole, you'll get treated like an asshole and I think we can all agree that no one likes assholes.

RE: Icon Requests

I'm always happy to take an icon request. However, after sitting on a request for approximately 3 or 4 months because a requester never got back to me, I have made an addition to the requirements when submitting icon requests.

An FYI...

Hi all! I hope everyone had a great weekend.

Since I started making and sharing codes, I've gotten a question or two here (or seen them in other comms) where someone asks why the code is not working in the profile/userinfo area. To answer it simply, the profile section only allows some HTML. Simply put, anything else you try to add to it will get stripped once you hit the Save and/or Submit button. Unless otherwise stated, all codes I post to [info]iheartunicorns are in-entry codes, which basically means they'll only work as a journal entry. You can, however, use the code on a custom page for Tumblr or your own webhost. But, for the most part, when I make my codes, it's assumed these will be used on InsaneJournal or similar platforms such as LiveJournal or Dreamwidth.

If you have questions regarding this or anything else with [info]iheartunicorns, please let me know.

Ohai. I bring you an update.

Hello everyone! It's been a while since I made anything of significance and I'm sure you're tired of seeing Charlie Hunnam's face (or maybe you're a fan of Charlie and love seeing all his icons, IDK, lol), so I'm gonna try and change that a bit. To that end, I'm here for your icon making needs so I'm encouraging everyone to submit requests and throw all your faces at me. c;

All my codes found on [info]rpresources, with the exception of Pointedly (tl;dr, it needs a re-vamp lol), are now all here. I even have one sitting in a private entry, just waiting to be revealed while I put some finishing touches on it! I'm also hoping to work on coding things I've been meaning to try, but haven't gotten around to.

The journal got a bit of a re-vamp and because of that, the sticky "moving in" post will be converted into a navigation post. It'll have all the necessary links to the icon directories, codes, and other posts on [info]iheartunicorns.

Lastly, if you're an icon maker or make codes for RPers and looking to network, I do have an affiliates post you can make a request at.

This is where some basic information about yourself can go. For example, what else you might post to your CDJ if you use it for more than just CDJ stuff such as likes, interests, etc. The smaller icons lead to some of your active characters.

RP INFO, ACTIVE, & SAMPLES are links to posts that have the appropriate info such as info details if you don't provide that in the same post as this basic info sheet will go, active character directory, and RP writing samples. Don't forget to use <br/> for your line breaks!

This info sheet also has a matching post template! You can direct people to detailed information such as experience, types of characters/games you play, and do's and don'ts by using the provided link below...
