Question about the "Services" Forum (in General)

[LittleRed]Calynne January 1 2008 5:59 AM EST

Ok, I'm thinking about starting up a thread offering my services to make CB themes for people like I did in CB1... and possibly a little artwork for CB$ as well. Character portraits and the like. What I want to know is if this would go in the services thread, since it is a service I am offering to others? I've asked Slayer already and he kind of gave me a "depends on who you ask" kind of answer, so I thought this would be a good way to find out if there's any interest in this, and where I would post my thread when and if I open up shop.

So tell me what you think, do people want personalized CB themes anymore? And character portraits? I'll provide a few examples, so that people don't think I'm super good or anything when they're answering. =P

I do Chibis...

Black N White Pieces (shaded, of course)

Colored Pieces (this one is flat color)

This is all still very much up in the air, depending on where I can or cannot post my thread about it, CBers' interest, and the difficulty of the pieces I get commissioned to do. But this is a good way to find out whether or not its worth putting work into. So what do you think?

I would assume your best bet is in FS/WTB since you are "selling" a service... And this kind of service would be quite welcome here...

[LittleRed]Calynne January 1 2008 6:43 AM EST

What about forgers? They're "selling" something too... but they get to put their stuff in services...

Personalized themes won't really be useful until the new theme engine has taken over the entire game, but this seems to be, all in all, a good idea. Seems like something that would work in services, even though things of this description don't fit the guidelines for the services forum. There hasn't really been any precedence shown...

[LittleRed]Calynne January 1 2008 6:54 AM EST

There wasn't precedence for it in CB1 either, as I can recall. I think when I did themes in CB1 I had my thread posted in General... but I doubt that'd fly in CB2...

Sorry for being off-topic, but im getting the " = " thing going again in thread titles.

[LittleRed]Calynne January 1 2008 9:08 AM EST

Does it to me, too... but you should write a new thread about that, not post off-topic in a thread about it... To redeem yourself, you must post here again, giving your opinion on one or more of the several questions of this thread. Thank you. =)

I don't mean to double-post... but I thought these were too cute to keep to myself...

OMG you two are soooooooooooooooooo cute! where's my spoon... WHERES MY SPOON!!!
oh, and I think services is probably a good place to post this "service".
oh oh... and I think super good would be a fine way to describe your stuff. :)

Technically it should probably go in FS/WTB but that would be difficult for you to manage as you're likely to need feedback on your "service" from more than just your specific customer. It would be hard to get this via CMs if you were using only the FS/WTB forum.

I don't mind if you put it in services.

Nice drawings btw.

omygawrd! I've been chibified! :P

[LittleRed]Calynne January 1 2008 8:45 PM EST

You have, indeed... and look at how cute and innocent you look... totally wrong. :P

[LittleRed]Calynne January 2 2008 6:08 AM EST

So two Admins say its ok to put in Services... any others want to voice a yay or nay?

AdminG Beee January 2 2008 7:21 AM EST

How many do you need..?

[LittleRed]Calynne January 2 2008 8:20 AM EST

I just want to be sure that 'most' of the admins don't mind me putting it in services... I don't want to get fined.

TheHatchetman January 2 2008 10:04 AM EST

They tend not to step on each others' toes... From what I've seen, I would assume that if something is strongly disagreed with, they will voice opinion about the matter, and let Jon have the final ruling. One admin says go, and you're safe. Two do so, and you're set. ^_^

j'bob January 2 2008 10:07 AM EST

Double true. And who on Earth could fine you anyway after showing the world just how "cute" the Hatch'man could be! he he he. Oh Hatch.

TheHatchetman January 2 2008 10:35 AM EST

Dammit! I'm adorable and now the whole world knows it... Okay then... I'll use it to my advantage. To the small handful of you guys/gals that don't already:

Adore me!

[LittleRed]Calynne January 2 2008 9:18 PM EST

^_^ Okay... I just wanted to be sure!

QBOddBird January 2 2008 9:22 PM EST

I think your art is very impressive....and once the theme engine is up and running, I'd certainly want a personalized CB theme.

I'm already thinking I'm interested in finding out if you could do a Portrait for Hejin...

Great art! ^_^

[LittleRed]Calynne January 2 2008 9:42 PM EST

Thanky ^_^ I'll make my thread in services in a minute.

[LittleRed]Calynne January 2 2008 10:23 PM EST

Er... actually, I'll make it after I have a cute drawing of Calynne sitting at a lemonade stand finished... =P
