j_sets is a friendly, creative community aimed at letting users showcase their original sets. Sets are signatures and avatars generally used for forums. This community is a place where members can put up their works for critiquing or to share with others.
♥ All works must be ORIGINAL, unless you are given permission by the artist to post their work here; ♥ All entries must include Japanese entertainment of some sort. Other entertainment may be shown as long as at least one entry with Japanese media is included; ♥ Wallpapers or another type of graphic may be posted; ♥ Be courteous to other members; ♥ Any brushes or programs may be used; ♥ Any dimensions are allowed (except when specified in contests); ♥ No requests! Use graphics_shop, our sister community, for that. ♥ Ask permission to use these sets, and be sure to credit! ♥ Please use tags!*
* Tags are helpful for readers and keep the community organized. Please refer to this post for rules about tags. To see the community's complete list of tags, go HERE.
j_sets is at the point where it has enough members to begin holding competitions. Unless in a special situation, I myself will not participate. These special rules will apply in competitions.
♥ All works must be ORIGINAL! No exceptions! ♥ To be considered, a signature AND avatar SET must be entered; ♥ Signature size must not exceed height 200 pixels by width 600 pixels; ♥ Avatar size must not exceed height 150 pixels by width 150 pixels; ♥ Any file type is allowed; ♥ Any brushes may be used; ♥ Any program may be used; ♥ All entries must be ANONYMOUS (meaning they cannot be posted elsewhere); ♥ Sets entered in contests MUST have Japanese entertainment in them. ♥ If there is a theme, sets must follow it in some way.
Please stay tuned for updated rules. :)
♥ If you entered the competition, you may vote, but not for your own set. ♥ You may not say who you voted for until after the winner has been announced. ♥ You may only vote for one person.
I decided on prizes for this competition. I'm not sure if the prizes will be the same kinds of thing everytime, but this time they are this:
1st place: Banner for LiveJournal UserInfo and minibar for forums. Everyone else: Minibars. *Banners and/or minibars will be consistent with the theme of the competition. :)
j_sets is a growing community and needs promotion! One image you may use for promotion is here:
Please see this post for other banners used for promotion. Feel free to make your own, as well. Please promote j_sets in at least one place.
My name is Megan and I'm your moderator. Currently I'm the only one maintaining j_sets but if it gets big enough then I may start asking for some help. If ever you need to contact me, feel free to do so in one of the following ways:
