This is a friends only community, therefore, you must join before you are allowed or able to take and/or use any icons you see in this community.
This community is for people who make icons based on emo bands, emo in general, or music in general. You're also welcome to post icons, friends only banners, wallpapers, layouts, colorbars, n whatnot of movies, actors, actresses...etc.
You're also welcome to join if you don't make icons, but make sure you credit emo_icons_ in your keywords if you use an icon you got off of this community.
1. Things you may post: a. post icons you made b. a request for an icon c. tutorials of some sort related to making icons d. bases, templates (etc.) 2. Follow the rules the maker of the icon states. (ex: if they say to comment, then post a comment with the number of the icon you're taking) 3. This is a nice community! Keep out the drama...if there is any icon drama..i really dont know but just keep it out of here ! 4. Promoting isnt necessary, but it would be nice. This way, everyone wins because we get more icons. :-) 5. YOU CAN ONLY TAKE ICONS IF YOU HAVE JOINED THIS COMMUNITY AND ARE A MEMBER. NO ANONYMOUS POSTING. THIS IS A FRIENDS ONLY COMMUNITY. 6. Posting promos for other communities is okay, just make sure they're under an lj-cut and don't over do it. No one likes to have their friends page raped. 7.All posts should be made Friends Only. If not, i will comment on the post with a warning, and you can go back and edit your entry so that it is Friends Only. If this is not done, your post will be deleted.

Which program should I use to make icons? Personally, I use Jasc Animation Shop 3 because it's really simple and easy to use. After exploring a while, you tend to get the jist of how things work. Also, a lot of people use Paint Shop Pro and Photoshop. Just note, when using those last two programs, be ready for some confusion if you're a first timer.
How do I post in this community? Click the 'join this community' link in this community's info page. Then, when you go to update your journal, below the text box, click on the menu and select "emo_icons_" and post away.
I want to make an icon but I don't know how If you search on the web and throughout other communities on livejournal, you can find many different tutorials for making icons for different programs. Or, if you don't feel like going through the whole learning process, just post a request in this community with the things you want your icon to have (i.e. a picture, lyrics, words, etc.).
