Welcome to The Pixel Place. As of January 9, 2009 we are accepting new members. We are an older community that has been on a long hiatus and we are now back, and so glad to be!
The Pixel Place is a DRAMA-free pixel/freeware sharing zone. We also have makers who offer freebies, and even some open request makers who take requests frequently.
Everything we share here is freeware (meaning there is no credit to anyone for the things we share) and all pixels, icon bases, etc. go into our Community Photobucket where all members, makers, and mods may snag them for future use.
We have 2 contests a month, and they are very fun! We dont like boring, ordinary stuff around here :) Everyone here is very friendly and we will most likely accept your request to join unless there are other circumstances that would be a problem or a threat to our community.
Feel free to have a look around on our User Info, and then if you decide to join, you won't be sorry!!
* EVERYTHING shared in this community must be freeware. * DO NOT request from makers unless they offer something. * There ARE open request makers, that take requests anytime. * All makers and their status' will be listed on the User info. * All makers rules are posted at our Mod journal pixelplacemods * All requests are to be picked up within 5 days or you will get a strike * If you have any questions, please ask. We are here to help! * Please participate. There are contests all the time, voting, sharing, etc. We want everyone to have fun here! * Please make sure you read all maker's rules. Some makers who share pixels in their offers do not want their pixels to be snagged. They often recolor or animate the pixels they have themselves. If they specifically ask, please don't take them. * Please no hotlinking from our photobucket. We have a lot of members here. If everyone hotlinks, we will have no bandwith. Then we will have to start all over. Just don't. * You ARE allowed to take anything from the photobucket that you'd like. * CREDIT all maker's work, unless noted that they don't need or want credit for their work. * You MAY request for pixels. Just not pixel-to-blinkie. Or for any other type of graphic (unless you ask the open requesters), you may post an entry in the community asking them to help you find certain pixels, questions about pixels or freeware, for personal use or themes you are collecting. * Use your manners. We are adults. * We use the 3-strike rule. We have yet to have a member get even one strike. We'd like to keep it that way. We would like for everything to stay friendly and warm, with no problems. If a problem does arise, the mods will determine what will be done. The worst thing as you all know, is you will be banned. Or placed on a maker's DNM list. We don't want that. Just follow the rules. If you have any questions or problems, ask before you do it. That will cure any chaos from happening. * If you do not follow a maker's rules, they have the right to refuse your request. As stated before, their rules are posted in public entires at the mod journal listed above. Read the rules, and follow them, please. * All comments, suggestions, and affiliate requests are welcomed.
* Membership is moderated, you must be approved for membership. * All you have to do is, Press "Join" * Once approved, Make ALL posts MEMBERS ONLY. * FILL OUT YOUR INTRO POSTS. Thanx. * Please add us to your friend's reading filter/list, so you won't miss out on any of the cool offers offered here, or any of the cute pixels, icon bases, etc. shared here!
* You will be approved as long as you aren't any of the following:
YOU MAY BE DECLINED IF: 1. You are a member of a graphic/icon/blinkie stealing community. 2. You have been known to steal graphics and claim as your own. 3. Your journal has never been updated. 4. You are known to be rude, and start drama in other communities. 5. You don't credit or use graphics/icons/blinkies that have been made for you correctly, or you don't pick up when you're supposed to.
Maker's Requirements: Offer no less than 3 freebies a month, with a minimum of 5 requests each. You may offer whatever you want, whenever you want, to however many requesters you wish. But those are your minimum requirements. We also encourage a sharing post every now 'n' again :)
