Welcome to girl_musicians!

In this community, you will find icons and other fan art of female musicians of any music genre. The interests are just some examples. These are not limitations. You may also find text icons featuring lyrics of songs originally performed by female musicians.

This community has been created to help fill a void in the livejournal community. It is disappointing that, to this person's knowledge, there is a lack of a central place to find icons for many female artists.

Now let's get down to the rules*:

1. Membership:
This an open community; you don't need approval to post, since I grant everyone approval anyway. However, I will not hesitate to ban people if things get out of hand.

2. Communication:
+ Make your posts clear. "PlZ dO nOt TyPe LiKe ThIs. ItS hArD 2 ReAd & UnDeRsTaNd. Thx." Don't mutilate words or the English language as a whole.
+ In addition, make every effort to label the contents of your posts clearly -- if your link to more icons in your personal journal doesn't actually have more female musicians stuff, then say so. And if you're going to link to a post in your own journal, please don't friendslock it, okay? If you do, make sure you say so in your post here. There's nothing more annoying than following a link to an icon post that you can't see. And having a friends only icon post so you can force people to friend you is kind of pathetic, really.

3. Be Considerate of Slow Connections:
+ When posting more than four icons, banners, wallpapers, and other "big" graphics, please use the lj-cut tag. Some people have slow connections, and it's a drag to load tons of icons. (For info on LJ tags, look at the LJ FAQ.)

4. Other Discussion:
+ This is a girl musicians ART community. That means that there are two criteria for posts: (1) It has to do with female musicians, AND (2) It involves icons and/or other graphics.
+ It is acceptable to post art-related questions and/or requests for icons as long as they relate to female musicians.
+ It is NOT acceptable to post solicitations for other communities or journals.

+ No stealing icons! If you're going to take someone's icon, comment and tell them. If you're going to take someone's icon and pass their work off as your own, you'll be removed from the community and may heaven have mercy on your soul.
+ NEVER STEAL BANDWIDTH -- This should go without saying, but never, ever hotlink someone's icons (or any images, really) without asking. LiveJournal is kind enough to host our icons, so if you use someone's icon, it won't be a bandwidth drain on their server. If you plan to use the icon somewhere that requires remote hosting, DO NOT link from the creator's website without getting permission FIRST.</center>
