Welcome to Christian Livejournal Styles. This is a brand new community that is for only Christian related livejournal styles. There are a lot of livejournal style and layout communities out there, but none that I saw promoting a Christian theme. Now, if you want to join please abide by these rules:
Be respectful of other members.
Do not make layout/style requests. What people choose to share is what you have to choose from. The exception is if a member who creates layouts wants to open up the option for requests.
Only members who create styles and layouts are able to post. If you join and would like to submit some of the work you do, please comment and give me at least one example of a style that you have made. If I find out at any time from anyone that the "work you do" is not really yours, you will be banned. If you claim a style/layout is yours when it isn't, how can we trust you to credit the ones we submit?
If you are granted permission to post your styles you must only submit styles that promote Christian themes (prayer, praise, hymns/lyrics, Jesus, etc). If you have a pre-existing style that is not Christian related, all you need to do is replace the image with a Christian theme. Then just edit a few colors to correspond with the new image and you are free to submit it. All the styles I create come from a master template and are only edited for images and colors. It isn't hard ;)
Since posting is disabled for most members, you will have to communicate through comments. Please keep these respectful. Any comments that are rude or demeaning and do not glorify God will be deleted. If this is a regular problem you will be banned but I really don't want to have to do that.
Please retain all credits on any style/layout you take. You may edit the basics: text, links, heading titles, etc but for the sake of the one who made the layout and the risk of it breaking, don't edit out any of the tags (unless you are skilled and the maker doesn't mind - see the next list item for more on this)
If you are familiar with html and are really daring, you may edit the colors to your liking. However, I really suggest you not touch the div layers, tables, etc as it doesn't take much for those to not work anymore. If you do break your layout you will have to delete that style and create a new one starting all over again. Regardless of what edits you make to the layout, you must retain credits and the image must remain the same. The exception is if the maker of the style explicitly says in their post or in comment tags in the style that you cannot edit out something.
You must be a member to view the layouts and you must comment if you take it. If you leave the community, you must remove the style ... plain and simple.
I have been looking around at other livejournal styles/layouts places and there are more restrictions placed so be happy. I'm being nice :) Let us make this place a place that honors God and glorifies His name. Finally the time has come when we can freely share with each other styles that proclaim our love and devotion to God and in doing so help to spread the message of the gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. May God bless you and keep you as you serve Him.
If you want to submit layouts and styles you have made, you can comment in this entry. However, if you want to use a style someone has already submitted, you must comment in that specific entry. Welcome and enjoy your new layouts/styles/templates :)
