collecting: actively seeking; absolutely not for trade.

future decks: high-priority is a nope, sorry. this also includes my portfolio. however, medium to low-priority, just ask. i reserve the right to say no, but generally if i see you have more cards than i do, the card is yours, especially if you offer me something i'm collecting already.

trade decks: always available to trade! please ask for as much as you want. ♥ if it seems like you don't have something i want, link me to your trade pile. i love shopping in trade piles!

crayons: if i'm close to mastering a deck with the crayon color you want, then i may say no. however, i normally will trade these away if you're closer to mastering the deck than i am!

signatures: found here. if you want to trade signatures and i don't have any, please let me know so i can go trade a crayon in for them at the art shop or trade some cards in the art studio!

i always love new trading buddies! if you want to be mine, please let me know so i can add you!

It's that time of year again! If you'd like a Christmas card from me, simply give me your name and address and I will send a card out to you! Also, I may decide to make them all in Photoshop to give them that sort of personalized feel, so give me a series you're interested in as well as a favorite color! And, if you live outside of the US, I will still send you a card! :D

Hello! My name is Liz and I'll be happy to serve you! Now what am I offering in exchange for paid time or points? Well, I'm glad you asked! First to offer is manga coloring! I can do it all - shading, highlighting and making sure things pop and glitter!

These are some examples of my best work, and thus, these services can be performed just for you! I work with Photoshop CS5!

For these, depending on how much time (I usually can finish something within a day, but with a project like coloring 30 icons, it'll take me a week because I want to perfect it) it takes, I'd ask for either a month to two paid time/30 to 60 points.

Is that not for you? Don't worry, I offer other services! Second on our list is profile banners!

You can see what I've done here with these three accounts: [personal profile] restazured, [personal profile] harpielady and [personal profile] last_to_kneel. For the first one, it uses textures and custom text. For the last two, it's great should you want a monochromatic profile layout for your character just to give it that edge. You provide me the image you want me to use on top of any additional requests and I'll whip something up for you! For the monochromatic profile layouts, give me something along the lines of this and I'll work with it!

These go for at least thirty points.

But, wait, maybe that's not what you want! Don't worry, I also offer doing iconsets of manga/anime, live action, video games and more! Examples of my more recent work are right here: [personal profile] lovelymaiden, [personal profile] doesherbest, [personal profile] blancwing, [personal profile] ptera_ranger, [personal profile] toughlikehermama and [personal profile] eternaldevotion! I'll ask for screencaps or pages thaat you want me to use, however if little exists, then I will scour the web for images for you!

There are more examples of my work found at my icon community [community profile] novae!

Depending on how much you want, here's a rough rundown of prices:

15 icons - 10 points.
30 icons - 20 points.
45 icons - 30 points.
60 icons - 60 points.
etc etc


I also do plurk layouts! You can see what I'm capable of with my own plurk located right here: [plurk.com profile] advancing. I can edit the CSS code to match the layout itself and other things like that. Now, all you'd have to do is give me the image you'd like, any colors and I'll get to town on it. Also, please notify me if you have a bad reaction to bright colors or the like and I shall work to make the layout muted.

For these, it'd be around 50 to 75 points.

I'm strapped for cash and am looking at ways to make some extra cash fast, as well as have things I need to get rid of to make space in here. You can set the prices as I'm willing to bargain. Unfortunately, you'll have to cover shipping and I'll try to make sure that they're reasonable.

Here's a list of what I'm willing to let go! All of these have been kept in good condition, unless otherwise stated in parentheses.

Shit, man. When was the last time I updated this?

BUT ANYWAY, this is so that I don't forget come around October/November!

Would anyone want to do a Secret Santa sort of thing? Either you make graphics, do a fic, fanmix, etc or send out a present of some kind
sᴛᴏʀᴍғᴀʟʟ ❤
to your Secret Santa and keep the love going around.
sᴛᴏʀᴍғᴀʟʟ ❤
Or something like that.
sᴛᴏʀᴍғᴀʟʟ ❤
Like, gifts can range from 5 to 10 bucks - cheap stuff, you know?
sᴛᴏʀᴍғᴀʟʟ ❤
But, everyone will be able to get a card and all that.

Comment here if you're interested in it and I'll make sure to remember this!

Here's all the plurk emotes that I've made.

because it's hella long. )
advancing: (SHAHRAZAD ღ happy you're safe.)
feel free to add me if:
► we share a game together
► we have mutual interests
► I know you from another site

Generally, I won't remove people unless if I have a reason to. This will be if I'm uncomfortable having you on my timeline or if we've simply fallen out of touch. However, if you want me to add you back, simply ask and I will be happy to do so.

I also spam a lot of images/links. If this annoys you, let me know and I'll try to contain it to one plurk.

However, I should warn you that I will be talking about health problems, both physically as well as mentally. I am seeing a psychologist to treat for anxiety and depression issues, so if those make you uncomfortable, then tell me and I'll be sure to create a filter/give a warning for when I'm about to talk about it. As of right now, I'm trying to not talk too much/put too much emphasis on my issues and instead try to work through them.

Though, I hope we can be the best of friends now that you've read this!

SO, for some dumb reason, I saved these emotes on my old computer and forgot they existed until now. Some of these may not work on plurk, but can be used in general on threads and whatnot. If someone knows of their creator, please tell me and I'll be sure to credit them!

And now, on to the emotes! )

OTHER INFO: I have chronic depression as well as attention deficit disorder, the former I'm getting psychological help with and the latter is something I've been working with all my life. Since I'm nearly twenty now, I've gotten my distractions down to a minimum, but I generally don't have a problem with this anymore. When I do whine about my depression, I'll probably tag it or put it under a cut. I haven't done that just yet, but I'll be sure to let people know of when I do it!

Here's a comprehensive post of the workarounds for LJ's new comment pages. Feel free to share this, comment on what you've found that can help, etc etc. I'll keep this post open and I'll also update it when new things are brought out!

As of December 21st, there is a temporary work around around the comment page style. The person is still developing it, but has released what they have done so far to the general public. If you'd like to offer assistance, I know that the person would really appreciate it. I also know that through plurk, someone is going to offer to work on redesigning the comment pages to be like the old one.

As far as the preview button is concerned, I haven't discovered any sort of fix for that around LJ, however I do offer this to preview your HTML as well as a spellchecker if your browser of choice does not supply you with one.

If you have anything else to offer, go right ahead and leave me a comment! This will also be featured on my plurk for those who wish to contact me through there.

After I typed this entry, I have noticed that the old browse box is still available. You can see that here with my own icons as part of the box itself. I don't know if LJ's going to do away with this, but it's still there!

Edit #1 If you add "?format=light" to the end of the URL (for example, http://advancing.livejournal.com/133124.html?format=light), it removes the bottom scroll bar as seen here to make things look cleaner and neater. I've also discovered that adding "?view=flat" at the end of the URL also works. This can also be useful in LJ communities, as seen here. It doesn't offer hierarchical view, however it does work.

Edit #2 I've found that [livejournal.com profile] street_of_mercy's layouts has the old options back, same as the hover menus. You can see how their Colorful Grey layout does this here, for an example. As [livejournal.com profile] turncloak has suggested, [livejournal.com profile] mintyapple also offers a few layouts right here. They have a tag for these sorts of layouts here!

I have been informed that Minimalism layouts still have the old comment pages, too. You can find all of them here. A friend of mine has also told me that they "managed to make a workable journal layout with this. I set my journal style to minimalism (in my case, aquatic moon) with custom comments on, used the CSS provided here, and set the dropdowns on the custom CSS page to Yes to stylesheets and No to theme stylesheets. I know it's not very pretty looking, but it's functional and it's a relatively quick fix to do."

Edit #3 If you'd like to see how the Russian users are handling this change, you can check out the community [livejournal.com profile] ruljautonews. The translations are by no means perfect, however just like we are frustrated and pitching fits about this change, they have expressed similar complaints about it.


I would like to apologize for how long it's taken me to get around to editing this entry, however I've been looking around for a few scripts that can help out with LJ as a whole.

First off is Adblock Plus for both Chrome and Firefox. I personally use this one and you can help customize it against YouTube embeds, Facebook addons and more. What this is going to do is whenever you load a page on LiveJournal, it won't benefit from the ad revenue the site will gain, therefore cutting more profit away from LJ as a whole.

If you're familiar with writing code on the fly, then Greasemonkey is for you. But, if you don't have knowledge in writing scripts, then don't worry - you can go to userscripts.org and it'll automatically install the scripts right there for you. I also use a script called LJ Bannering that disables the monthly banner and replaces it with the dark blue one. As you can see here, it works!

To go through multiple LJ accounts at once, you'll want to install LJLogin, a client I wholeheartedly use. It also doesn't exclusively work for LJ, either! It can work for sites such as InsaneJournal, Dreamwidth, Scribbld, etc. This way, you don't have to constantly login and logout via the site when you want to use a different account.

Hand-in-hand with RPers and people who make long posts, Lazarus is, to be frank, a god send. If you somehow manage to close out of your browser or a specific tab, Lazarus will save the text/form and it'll automatically be up the next time you wish to comment.

As [livejournal.com profile] historychick49 has pointed out, the LiveJournal extension for Chrome as well as LiveJournal hook will allow you to view pages in your own style if you don't have a paid or a permanent account! It'll be plenty useful for how things are right now as far as LJ is concerned.

I'm still looking for other add-ons, but if anyone has anything to offer that wasn't described here or in this entry, then please let me know and I'll append it to the entry!

permanent anon post

I know I'm not perfect and I've made mistakes in the past, the latter being something that I've been trying to work on for quite a while now so that I can better myself and be the happiest I can be. So, if you need to get something off your chest about me, an unresolved issue in between us, or anything else - this is the place to do it. I want to help ease the tension in between us if there's any.

Anon commenting is turned on and IP logging is turned off.

Please do not come to harass me here. If you want to help me by giving me constructive criticism, then by all means! Wank won't be tolerated.

need an ear?

As someone who has struggled with depression, self-harm and suicide, I know it's tough to talk to someone about what's been going on and how you may feel that no one cares to listen. Well, I want to tell you that if you ever need to talk to someone, I am always here for you. So, whether you just want to talk or are in need of some advice, then this post is for you. I want to try to help out in some way and if I've been able to do that, then that brings a smile to my face.

If you wish to keep anonymity, then I've turned anonymous commenting on. It will remain on unless if I see a problem.

Remember, you are not alone.
