We felt it was time to settle on a few new rules for our group, to keep it up-to-date and also because we've been facing various issues lately that needed to be addressed. Please let us know if you think there is something you would like to add, remove, or modify.
Becoming a Babe
The ladies we accept as "Babes" must prove that they are interested in and dedicated to CSS. If you wish to become a "CSS Babe", you need to have more than two complete CSS skins/CSS designs in your gallery. Alternate versions of the same CSS layout are not considered separate skins. In addition we will verify that your code is not stolen/copied from someone else's work.
Submission Rules & Process
Submit your deviation to the right category: misplaced submissions will be declined. Note that the "Featured" folder is for select works only, so do not submit to this category.
Provide a live preview of your journal skin to prove its functionality. (a link to sta.sh is sufficient) Previews typically contain examples of text, links, images and whatever features are added to your skin to demonstrate them in use.
Before accepting your submission, we will verify that it doesn't contain stolen material like copyrighted images, images found on Google Images or other Image Websites, etc.
When using stock images, you must credit the creators of the stock. If no such credits are provided, the submission will be declined.
For now we will not accept any more fandom journal skins like "Hetalia", "My Little Pony", "Naruto", etc., as well as Celebrity Skins. Exceptions to this rule are journal skins created using your original art and original characters as opposed to official art that must be verified. (permissions must be provided, we will not hunt them down)
We won't be very strict concerning the quality of your designs; each person operates on their own skill level. We will, however, decline CSS designs containing barely legible text. Keep in mind that the highest purpose of a journal skin is to provide information through text, hence legibility must be among your Number One priorities.
A deviation submission will NOT be accepted or declined based on personal taste.
