Welcome to Chloro Signatures! Chloro Sigs is a signature shop run by ghostofillusion. We will provide forum tags, userbars, logos, avatars, 3D designs, large art, banners even wallpapers on request.

IMPORTANT: Chloro Signatures is a NON-profitable organization. You may NOT redistribute, modify or paste your own signature or somebody else's signature without your signature artist's permission. It is important when you receive your signature to upload it to another image-hosting site such as Imgur to use on the forum. This is to prevent loss of signatures, due to accidental bandwidth overload, or deletion of signature online.


Yes, there are requirements to requesting. I know this sounds like a sort of madhouse rule, but every place needs its limits, to stop from stressing out its employees.

Consider:
Do I have over 100 posts on the Sporum?
Do I have a some-what decent reputation on the Sporum?
Have I requested a signature in the last two weeks?
Do I currently have another signature requesting going on at another shop?
Have I been annoying to the person I am requesting a signature from?

Just think about that stuff before requesting Use your judgement and integrity.

FAQ

Question: What does FAQ stand for?
Answer: Frequently Asked Questions

Question: What's a signature?
Answer: Look around the Sporum. After every message, there is an automatic block that is added to the end of every post. Here at MM, we make fancy image types of signatures.

Question: Gee, I want one! How do I get one?
Answer: Above, you will see the usernames of the artists. In big red underlined text where it says "Request from ______", click on the link, and each artist will have their specific order forms and reserved posts.

Question: I don't like reading, I'm butt-hurt and just want a fricking sig!
Answer: Sucks for you then. If you sound like a whiny-troll, then your request will not be tolerated or considered. It will be buried and have no funeral. And, if you ask why we're not making you a sig, I will quote this post, bold it, give you a dirty look, and possibly wag my finger at you.

And you don't want that, do you?

Question: Why is ghostofillusion so annoying?
Answer: There's more than one way to approach this question. I am "annoying" with rules because my last signature shop (Exalted Sigs) got me stressed out really bad. I was the only one getting requests, and the shop was interfering with my school work, which is more important. Hopefully, this shop will be much different, but I'm putting a few extra rules and guidelines to loosen the possibility of it happening again.

Question: Ghostofillusion, will you marry me?
Answer: Get in line.


Requesting:
The rules are simple. All you have to do is state who you would like to work your sig, and they will work their magic. If you want something more abstract, or you don't have a stock preference, please just say so.

If you enjoy systematic work, you can fill out this form.

____
If we were just a shop were you walked in, got your art and left, we wouldn't last very long. That's why we have a community! We as graphic artists united are dedicated to creating works of art; hand-drawn or not!



Here in the TOTW section, we will feature a signature that we find very impressive. We can feature a signature because we see that the user has improved, or that the artwork is amazing in general. They can be created by member's outside of our community as well.

The TOTW will be decided every Sunday, at around 12:00 PDT. Of course, there will be exceptions to fit my busy life schedule.

This week's SOTW:






Question: What is the Macro Community?
Answer: Macromanagement has more than just customers and employees going on. We have people who are just in the shop to hang out. We regularly hold contests and competitions to help other people recognize certain artists.

We believe that a good community is the answer to all improvement. And that's what we all want: to improve.

Question: Do I need to be able to make sigs to join the community?
Answer: Heck no! You can absolutely suck at sigs, and still be a great member of the community. As long as you're nice to everybody and give constructive criticism, you can join.

Question: Can I make hand-drawn art and still be a part of the community?
Answer: Of course! All art is welcome, hand-drawn or not.

Question: Can I drop off my art to show everybody in the thread?
Answer: The answer is yes.. up to a point. If you just drop off a sig, leave and repeat without any comments or anything, that is not allowed. We encourage everybody showing off art to be part of the community and discussion.

Question: Can I drop of my resources to share?
Answer: Absolutely! We're all here to improve, and if you share it with the community, you're doing lots of people a favor.

Question: How do I move up to "Epic Member"?
Answer: When I see that you are worthy. You don't ask me, I will add you automatically.


These members are the most contributing members to get on this list. You don't have to be the best artist to be on here, but the most helpful.

These are members of the community who post regularly in the shop through thick and thin. They can be employees, or they could be customers who want to be more interactive with the shop.

These are people who are not allowed to post here. Anybody on the Banned List who posts here will be ignored, and (if behavior persists) will be alerted to a moderator).



Because we at Chloro believe that if you are sharing art and giving CONSTRUCTIVE criticism to anybody, you're a good member and don't deserve to get banned forever. But, if you are causing a problem with me or any of the other members inside or outside of this thread, and they break the Terms and Conditions you agreed to you WILL be put on the perma-ban list. No excuses, zero tolerance.

About the Temp-Ban List: The Temporary Ban List is a list that shows who is currently serving time for not following Guidelines set up by either the Sporum or in the Terms and Conditions.

First Minor Offense: Warning
Second Minor Offense: 1 Day Ban
Third Minor Offense: 1 Week Ban
Forth Minor Offense: 1 Month Ban
Fifth Minor Offense: Perma-Ban

Remember, this ban system CAN AND WILL BE SKIPPED If you do something hurtful and continue to not set up the rules set-up, the community can decide to go straight from the warning to the one month ban.

If you get put on the Temp-Ban List: Obviously, everybody makes mistakes. If you feel that your banning was unfair, please PM me about the problem. The community has a "vote-out" option if you ever get on the temporary ban list. I will put up a poll asking if you deserved to be banned or not. If the majority of people agree that you shouldn't have been banned, you will be unbanned. If the majority of people believe you should have been banned, you will remain temp-banned until your sentence is over.
In rare cases, we have a "reduce sentence" option on the poll.

My Waiting List: aydiosmio
In the interest of flood control I will only be accepting 4 requests at a time. Please make sure you check for vacancies before making a request. Any requests made when I have no space will be denied automatically.
Right now, I have 3 spot(s) open.

My education, both on academics and the art of tagging is taking a bit of time, including time when I am on Photoshop, or Cinema4D working on a school project. I am sorry for my slow-moving waiting list.


1- pokemaster639 (804)

4-

Rules:
You can either use the form below to make your request, or just simply tell me what you want. When your request is complete, I'll PM you and possibly post it here for collection. I reserve the right to refuse any requests I feel are too demanding or too specific. Remember to host the image yourself on ImageShack or TinyPic.

When your request is accepted, I will add you to my waiting list. The number next to your name is for my use, so that I can remember the page that your request is on, and easily find it for reference. After you're name is added, its first come, first serve. BUT, if I feel that one request is experiencing difficulties, I will move on to the next reasonable request and PM the requester about my difficulties. Please cooperate with me, so your signature can be completed faster.
