As far as rules are concerned, I'm fairly easygoing. I have left the watermark off as I feel the shield looks better without it. That being said, you are NOT allowed to claim that any of these shields were made by you. Also, you do not have to link back. Although, it is very appreciated and I may even thank you for doing so if I see you. c:
9/3/13: WHAT? More shields?! That's right, four more shields have arrived today! I've been trying to get some autumn and Halloween shields up in time for the cool season. Enjoy!
8/31/13: And yet, another update? And within the same month! I'm getting better at updating, haha. Anyway, there are four new shields for you to use. Ravuna is in the BC this week and if you get a chance, could you spare a vote? That would be fantastic!
8/16/13: Wait, an update and it hasn't even been a year yet? What is wrong with me? LOL. Today I spend a little time going through my folders and completing some shields that I started and didn't finish. Hopefully I will have another update soon and not like, a million years into the future.
07/9/13: Oh snap what is this? An update?!! Yep, just added four more shields even though it took almost half a year, haha. Thank you everyone for all of the fan mail, I am surprised by how many people use my shields. thank you as always for your support!
02/26/13: Is it a new year already? Sorry for the lack of updates, I've just been busy with my job as usual. Oh well, in case you were interested, there are four new shields up today.
Do you take requests?
At the moment, no sorry. I'm just too busy doing other things. However, you can give suggestions as to what type of shield you would like to see.
Did you make your layouts yourself?
Will you make me a layout?
No, again I am too busy to do that.
Will you teach me how to do graphics
I can't, I'm sorry. Trust me, I'm a terrible teacher anyway. Dx
Do I have to link back?
Nope! Although, I'd really appreciate if you would put a link back somewhere for support! ^^
Can I use your shield code and replace it with my own shield?
Yes, you are more than welcome to do this. No credit or linking back is required.
Can we be affiliates? Can I list you in my directory?
Just mail me to be affiliates as I am usually accepting them. Feel free to list me, you don't need to ask. If you do, let me know so I can link back to you.
How to apply
(1) The first code does not adjust the positioning of the shield. I would recommend this code if you have a premade/custom userlookup where the borders of the user info module are invisible.
(2) Code number two shifts the shield away from the top right of the user info module. This code will keep the custom shield from looking too squished to the right. I recommend this code if you have a border of some sort around the user info box.
Once you have selected either code one or two, copy all of the code from the box and paste it in the 'About me' box section near the bottom of the page here. I recommend pasting the code near the top if you have other coding in this box already.
Now, look through the shield selection and pick a shield that suits you. You're going to want to recover the URL from the shield that you picked. In order to do that, right click on the shield that you want to use.
In Firefox, there should be an option to 'copy image location'. In chrome, you will want to select 'copy image URL'. In Safari and Opera, I believe it is 'copy image address.
Now, head back to the My Profile page and look at the base code that you pasted in the box earlier. There should be something that has a URL and says 'SHIELD HERE' within the URL. Highlight this entire URL and paste the shield code in it's place.
Be sure NOT to select and delete the quotations as it will not enable the code to work properly! Now save your code and, viola! I hope that these instructions were not too daunting to figure out. If you are having any sort of issue, feel free to neomail and I'll do my best to help you!
