Section Guidelines & Rules (MUST READ!)

1 post in this topic

To all requesters,

The request forum is where our artists can assist you in any graphics request needed. We can work on forum/division banners to your own personalized forum signature; on special requests we can help with making template graphics, etc.

We don't expect you to be art/design savvy, however, it would make things move better if you began to have a basic understanding of what we're looking for in terms of images we can work with in order to complete the request faster. Examples of acceptable material that we may use can be found here: KSIID.

And it's important to keep in mind that this is just a hobby for us, we volunteer, this is not a job and we don't work on a schedule. For this gift that the artists provide the KSI community there are set rules and policies which need to be followed to help reduce any drama or confusion. Help us help you.

No outbursts or disrespect on your part will be tolerated. We have our standards for good reason. Complying with these rules and regulations will make your request process efficient, quick, and most likely provide you with a better product.

Graphic Artists may not have official moderating powers but are still to be shown respect and represent the team as a whole.

The closing of all topics will be determined by whichever GA is attending the topic in question, and will be at their discretion.

-----------------------------------------

Prerequisites for making a request:

1. ALL REQUESTS MUST BE KSI RELATED. If it is not meant to be used on these forums or for any other KSI related site, your request WILL BE TERMINATED.

2.1 Starting March 12, 2018, a person requesting MUST have 20 non-spam posts on these forums. This helps minimize forum trolls from using our time to help them with a graphic on another forum, etc. Another benefit of this rule is to encourage activity of KSI members on the forums.

2.2 Members MUST post the proper request form. We'll keep reminding you to post it. If you don't want to abide to our guidelines, then don't ask for our service. Request form can be found here.


3.1 Once a request has been completed (when it is fulfilled or ended due to special circumstances such as disrespect, negligence of rules, etc), the requester MUST wait 2 whole weeks (14 days) before making another request. This is to remind you that we are not your personal design team. We have others requesting our services and this policy is held in fairness.

3.2 Don't make multiple requests at the same time (banners and other community-wide projects being the only exception). Otherwise our section becomes cluttered and harder to keep track.

4.1 You may only *bump your topic once a day (*bump - post that word or anything else for the purpose of moving your topic to the top of the list / keeping it on the first page). Your request will be terminated if you have multiple "bumps" a day or any unnecessary spam. Anything other than answering questions from the Artists will be considered your bump and/or spam.

4.2 Vice versa, If you make a request but don't keep yourself updated with the request, it will be closed after 2 weeks of inactivity. For example, you made a request but for some reason it wasn't fulfilled by any artist and you decided not to bump it for several days. The team managing the request forum will conclude you lost interest in your request and we will close it.

4.3 Do not post in any other request topic. If it isn't yours, don't post there. You will be punished. If you have a request open - it will be closed and you will have to wait 2 weeks. If you persist, the moderation team will take further action.


If anyone has any questions about anything, don't hesitate to ask. Send a Personal Message to myself or any other Art Director or Graphic Artist. Most of us Artists have our Discord ID/Skype/MSN/AIM/etc. in our profile as well.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and hope for the best in your request.

Sincerely,
The Design Team
