Hey everyone! Long time no see. I'm so sorry I've been M.I.A. all summer. It's been…well…crazy to say the least. A lot of big life choices were made, work and school propelled forward, my health is still throwing a huge temper tantrum, and overall, I think I've become a better person because of it. That said, though, I want to announce one little minor thing that a couple of you might possibly find a bit interesting.
Requests are open.
Yep! Requests are officially back open! I'm going to be changing a few things about the request process and such, so please make sure you understand all of the changes before you ask for an icon.
The first change will be the number of icons I will do each month. I used to have it set up where I would take an endless number of requests until I got so bogged down that I couldn't hold up to my own standards. I won't be making that mistake again. So, for the time being, I will only take 25 requests at a time
. Once those 25 slots are filled, requests will be closed until I have all of them done. Upon such time, requests will reopen, then lather, rinse, repeat.
The second thing I am going to change is the number of icons a single person can request. I used to have a limit of 3 icons per person, but due to my new process, I am dropping that number down to 2 icons per person per batch
. That means that, for every 25 icons I make, one person can have up to 2. Once those 25 icons are done and requests reopen, said person can request more icons.
Third, once you have requested an icon, you cannot change the request
. You can cancel the request if you wish, but due to confusion in the past on too many requests to count, I will no longer allow changes. This includes wanting a different OC made, a different base, different colors, accessories, et cetera. My computer has a habit of screwing with new versions of old files, so to save a lot of headache on both ends, I'm just not going to give it that chance.
That should do it for now! I may make changes down the road, depending on how my school schedule works with this new process, but we'll see how the trial run goes.
