Journal Takeover - rainylake

Mon Jun 23, 2014, 9:48 AM
Hi all! rainylake here. Firstly, I want to thank the amazing fourteenthstar for letting me take over her journal for a day. The following entry will have information about one of my groups, and I hope you all will be interested enough to get involved :eager:

Welcome to the Recommend A Friend Project information journal v2. This journal's purpose will be to describe this little project, and to tell you information about signing up. Please be sure to read all the following information carefully in order for things to run smoothly. If you'd like to spread word about this project or even just favorite this journal so it reaches a larger audience, it would be most appreciated!


Originally, this started as a weekly feature on a custom box on my (rainylake) profile page, but things grew, and I decided to create an entire group for it. Basically the idea is, you 
send a note to RecommendAFriend that includes deviants that deserve some exposure (look below for more details). I will then create a journal featuring your friend, that will be up for a full week! The journal will feature five recommended deviants. It will also include a tidbit about the recommended friend, including why you should check them out. Once a month, all of the suggesters will be featured in an epic roundup journal.


Please send the group RecommendAFriend, a note Note  titled "Recommend A Friend". In the note, please recommend a deviant with the following form filled out. Notes without this form will be ignored :nod:

  • :dev: code of the deviant's name
  • Link to deviants gallery
  • Why is your friend awesome/why should we check out his/her gallery? (be sure to write a few sentences!)
  • If you'd like, feel free to add a few links or thumbs of your friend's artwork
  • Do YOU want to be featured? Yes/No
Note Title: Recommend A Friend
My friend is awesome because XYZ. You should check out ABC! Here are a few links/thumbs to their gallery.
No, I don't want to be featured in the roundup journal

Be sure to include this information, and not just send me a name Giggle.  Please only send ONE deviant/recommendation per note.  Please do not comment below with your recommendations. Be sure to send it to RecommendAFriend


Please understand that it may take some time to get your recommended friend and yourself featured due to the fact that these features are a week long each, and I'm uncertain as to how many people will participate. I cannot guarantee that you will be featured by a certain time, day, etc. I will however, guarantee that you will be featured eventually. I plan to continue doing this indefinitely. Heart

This is based on a first come, first serve basis. Please only send your note once, and be patient with me. However, if you send multiple recommendations, they may be spaced out over a few different weeks, in order to have some variety.

I've said this already, but I'll say it again. Please only ONE deviant/recommendation per note. Yes, you may send multiple notes. Do not comment below with recommendations.

Please be sure the deviant you are recommending is active, and has at least FIVE deviations in their gallery. You should be active too Bucktooth

Everyone and anyone can participate! The more people that get involved, the better. Spread the word if you can, affiliate with us, and be sure to join us!
