Before you make a post in this community, READ THE FAQ. The Anime Icons FAQ can be found here, and answers the most commonly asked questions posted in this community, such as where to get fonts, images, etc. If you post something that is answered in the FAQ, your post will be deleted.
When you are posting more than 4 icons, please use the LJ-Cut feature. Also, if you are posting ANY banners or graphics larger than 100x100, then please place them under a cut. If you are unsure how to do this, then go here. For those users with dial-up, or older computers, it can be incredibly annoying to wait for a lot of pictures to load. This will be strictly enforced.
Posting non-anime icons is acceptable, but only if you are posting anime icons with it. Please don't post more than 5 non-anime icons and then only 1 or 2 anime icons. That's not for this community.
ANY icons or banners that contain yaoi, yuri, or het that could be classed as R-Rated must be placed under an LJ-Cut. Some people access this community from schools, or their place of work, and it should be made safe for them to do so. Also, there are minors who access this community, and regardless of what they choose to read, equally they should be protected from anything unsuitable should they choose not to.
ALL hentai icons are to be placed under an LJ-Cut, and they MUST be anime based. If they are not, they will be deleted immediately.
Particpation is a must. Please don't join and then never look at this place again. Post icons, post comments, just make sure you particpate.
Be respectful of others. Anyone that makes abusive comments to another member, either a personal attack, or an attack on their icons, will be warned, and if the matter continues, banned and reported to Livejournal staff.
This community DOES take requests. However, we are not here to cater to all your needs. You can request pretty much anything you like provided that it has to do with anime.
There are a some simple guidelines you must adhere to if you are requesting.
If you are requesting an ICON
This is an ANIME community. As such, if you request something that is off-topic, your post will be deleted. This community does contain icons that are computer game based (e.g. Final Fantasy), and subjects such as this are acceptable. However, this community, videogame_icons, specialises in video game icons, and it would be preferable for you to post there. If you would like a icon of [insert random film star, actor, singer here], this is not the community for you. Try iconrequests instead.
Provide the image that you would like made into an icon. Either post it in your entry, or put a link to where the image can be found. ALL LARGE IMAGES ARE TO BE PLACED UNDER AN LJ-CUT. If you need someone to make a screen-cap for you, then say so. Any post that does not include an image, or states that they need someone to made a screen-cap for them, will be deleted.
Try to be specific about what you would like. For example, any text you would like on your icon, a specific colour scheme, etc. This is not mandatory, but your request is more likely to be filled if people are given a good idea of what you want.
If you are requesting a BANNER:
