When I started this, I've already stumbled on a few things I should've straightened out first before getting started. What I have here are a few guidelines and reminders so that I can keep my commissions more organized. Should there be more to post, this entry will be updated.Don't donate just yet
I'm going to be pretty strict on this one. Since commissions can pile up, chances are very likely that I'll loose track. With that in mind, having donations before getting your header designed could get very chaotic, and some people's demands could be overshadowed and their money would be put to waste. Either that or the template I've designed for them doesn't result tii well to their satisfaction, and thus they would demand a refund. In addition, I'm new with PayPal, and if some people would want their money back, I don't know how to refund them yet. Even in that regard, having an upset customer leaves a bad image on me. If I'm going under donations, I want to make sure everyone gets their money's worth in return. I'm not going to place myself under any form of greed. I want to be as fair as possible for everyone.
So for your sake and mine, wait first before donating."I want a template, but I don't know how I want it designed! "
That's ok. You don't have to think too hard about it. It's pretty natural to everyone at first hand when it comes to visualizing what fits them. Most of the time, I'm more than likely to help you with that.
To give a few pointers, if there are some resources want in the template, you can start off by stating where you want them positioned and how would want the title of your channel displayed. Afterwards, think of what colors you enjoy the most. With at least two, there's a possible hint to represent a theme that would suit you and/or what you would do with your channel. Additionally, there are some sources of media you enjoy (Movies, or video games titles) or outside activities (Skateboarding, sports, biking). This can hopefully bring an idea to the table to what I can do to make something that would fit you. It's not a guarantee, but it's a start."Why haven't you reached me yet?"
Sometimes, designing these templates can take a while, and if there's ever a big list to run down, the chances are it'll take a while to reach you, depending on when you sent a message. It's at these times you'll have to be patient."How long does it normally take?"
That varies a lot. There's no normal process to designing a template. Some can come out simple, and others can be complex. While I'm on this, I will show you a work in progress when you're the next commissioner.
That is all for now. Again, should anything else happen, this entry will be updated.
