Layouts, Codes, Tutorials, & Resources

Hey there, I'm Tess!

Welcome to my blog; I make lots of different layouts, codes, tutorials, and other resources for Insanejournal and Dreamwidth RPers! There's a lot to choose from and brand new content goes up every week!

Take a look around, and don't hesitate to ask for help if you need it!

Can't get enough resources? Why not subscribe to my Patreon for exclusive monthly content, or support the creation of more content by leaving a tip on Ko-Fi! ♡

If you're unable to comment on my journal to ask for help now that anon has been turned off due to serious spam issues, don't worry! Just shoot me an email and I'll send you an invite code for Insanejournal. I've got plenty to spare!

Please Note:

I do not offer assistance with any sites other than IJ and DW unless it is for general HTML and CSS (ie. custom hosted pages and similar.) I cannot convert a code to a new site's rules because there are a lot of niche RP sites, and I have no way of knowing each one's limitations and caveats. Sorry about that!

Nothing is more horrible than finding out, entirely too late, that players in your game were being so toxic that they were telling flat-out lies to other players about things the moderator was saying. This was to the point that the players being lied to thought they were going to be removed from the game by the mod. Uh... what?

I know it's 100% my fault. I didn't want to kick them out when they were shitty toward me, because I felt that I was just having hurt feelings about something said. It was possible that it was just a misunderstanding. I didn't want to ruin the rest of the game's fun and I didn't want to be the "monster mod" that I've been accused of being before. I withdrew and pretty much just let them run around free, because I couldn't stand to open up the page every morning to read what fuckery they were getting into today. I should've stamped them out before they could ruin my game, but now it's closed. It's possible I'll reopen when the wounds have healed, but I haven't decided yet.

Now, I find out that those toxic players are taking details from my game to make their own. Yeah, I know it happens a hell of a lot in RP, but this information is resting in the back of my mind and making me want to call them out for their bullshit. I'm trying to just let it go and hit the block button instead, but that's lot harder than you might think. These people managed to make it so that I stopped talking to someone who I spoke to every day, because I just didn't think she wanted to play with me anymore. I'm sure they were feeding her bullshit about me that probably said the same. That's what hurts the most. They fucked with my friendships by being assholes.

FAQ ● TOU


[info]fylora
I couldn't remember the last time I saw a graphic community on InsaneJournal that didn't solely focus on icons, so I decided that I would make one. I'm a Graphic Designer, currently taking a break from big business marketing and going after freelance. That said, graphic design is never something I want to fall behind on, and I thought what better way to practice than to make some stuff for the site. So, onto questions:


HOW DOES FYLORA WORK
I, like most people, have a job and I need to work. Most of the graphics I make are done in the evening and weekends. I have a collection of posts up right now {Icons, Banners, Cutouts, Themes, Maps, Game Branding} that users can feel free to comment on if they have a specific request that meets the criteria of the post. I will be adding more as time goes on such as Harry Potter, Glitch Effects, Mutants, Double Exposure and maybe even some Composite-Manipulations.
Want Work Users must friend [info]fylora to leave a screened comment. I will PM them with a link to a private discussion where we will hash out details and I will complete the request.
IS THIS FREE
Yes and no. Things that could take multiple days to complete like Game Bundles, Themes and Maps I can't give away for free. They often require me purchasing stock photography, spending hours in photoshop, trying and retrying until something looks right and all elements of the design cohesively match across the board. If it's a service I charge for you will find it tagged payment required along with details inside each post.

For items like banners, cutouts, and icons, or anything marked free services, there is no charge and I'm happy to batch you out whatever you need.
WHAT IS THE TURN - AROUND
If for whatever reason it will end up taking me longer, I will be in touch with you. However, I'm relatively confident in being able to complete requests in a timely fashion. All of these graphics are things I make for my own journals regularly.
Custom Requests
1 - 5 Business Days
Game Branding
10 - 14 Business Days
DO YOU KNOW HOW TO CODE
I would never say that I am a coder, personally. I use the resources provided by [info]tessisamess and have taught myself how to manipulate her base codes. However, I would never be able to put together a layout at this stage of my learning. Any code used to display work here originates with her. Go, support her work, she's self-taught and wonderful.
CAN YOU MANIPULATE OTHER CODES
If you're using someone else's code for your journal, I can work effectively with the code. Since I don't know any of the other journal coders personally, it's hard to cite them.
CAN WE SUGGEST WHAT WE WANT TO SEE HERE
Absolutely! If you have an idea for a new custom request contact me through my dropbox here and I'll see what I can do about implementing it, I'm always interested in what people want to see created.
I DON'T WANT TO PAY FOR ANYTHING
I understand that people rarely do, however, freelance isn't free. The programs I use are a monthly cost, the resources I have, are purchased regularly for the needs of my clients, all of these things add up.
I don't feel that it would be ethical to charge for photos of celebrity playbys that have either been cropped, manipulated or filtered. I find those images online just like everyone else. However, in terms of creating original content for users that take a considerable amount of time and effort, and that all comes with a price tag.
GRAPHIC DESIGN - RP ASIDE
If you have a graphic design request that goes outside of the world of insanejouranl and rp, I work hourly at a rate of $35/hr. Feel free to contact me through my dropbox here. My online portfolio is available upon request. I have worked for big-name clients like Gap Family Brands, Marvel, and Keller Williams.
I would be happy to discuss your needs. Rp is a hobby, design is my passion.
TERMS OF USE
The way the graphics are displayed is so I can keep track of who is using custom work, cropping graphics out or reposting custom work as your own will result in banning. Please be respectful, most of this stuff is free to you and custom to what you're asking for if you leave a comment.

When will I learn to stay out of game chats? I am a person who does better with face to face communication OOC. I sit and watch others interact and they poke jabs at one another, make borderline vile comments in jest, and make other sarcastic comments and laugh each other off. Whenever I begin to feel like I've gotten the vibe and jump in it always bites me in the rear. Without fail someone takes offense to what I've said which is typically no where near as offensive as some of the things I've seen them say to each other. Typically I mean to be silly or light hearted. Not to mention that my sense of humor is typically full of sarcasm. Guess I need to 100% bow out of chats and just let my characters exist in game and hope they get play which rarely happens if you aren't part of the chat crew. So yeah, it's a damned if you do, damned if you don't scenario for me.
