I decided to start this community after seeing so many people resulting to negative secrets about the group @ magicmachine in the iconsecrets community. I thought maybe a new community that was similar would give people a place to spend their time and not focus so much on why they're not in MM.
We're looking for 10-15 makers for join brightguild. Anyone can apply. You don't have to be at a certain skill level or a fan of a certain fandom. Just be yourself, and we're sure to love you.
This community will be a bit like magicmachine, in that it will have some regular activities, which will be posted at bgsandbox. There will also be members-only posts there, which will mainly be geared towards creating better friendships/sense of community. (Don't worry about what will be said in those posts, okay?) If you are accepted as a maker here, then you will be expected to participate in at least 4 community activities a year.
Posts made to brightguild don't have to be exclusive. Cross-posts are fine. Just try to post here fairly regularly. They also don't have to just be icons--any graphics will be fine. And you can pimp out other communities within those posts.
If you are accepted, you will be notified via your LJ inbox. You will then be asked to provide a small bio--basically 1-2 lines about yourself, your likes, and your dislikes. You will also receive an email to your account attached to Tumblr, if you have an account on there. The email will provide instructions for how to get posting privileges to the group's Tumblr, where you can post not just your graphics, but other things that you like.
<strong>Name + Username</strong>
<strong>What are your favorite fandoms?</strong>
<strong>Where do you currently post your graphics?</strong>
<strong>What 10 icons do you think are the best example of your ability?</strong>
<strong>Why would you like to join?</strong>
ALSO: If you don't make it this round, then just apply again later. It's also possible that if you aren't picked initially, that you will be invited later.
