Sticky: FF LAND FAQ

Overview
This community is a mix of a stamping game and a team challenge community. Fill out the application to be sorted into one of four Final Fantasy job classes and then participate in the various activities to win points for your team!

To start, join & watch [community profile] finalfantasyland and [community profile] ff_classchange. Then fill out and submit an application at [community profile] ff_classchange (it can be found at the top of the community, in a stickied post. If you want more information, [community profile] ff_classchange has guides on how to apply and how to sort people (members only).

But that's only the beginning! From then on you'll be able to participate in various games and contests, as well as post your fanworks for points. The point of this community is basically:

1. Have fun in various contests.
2. Meet fellow Final Fantasy fans, make friends, be FF geeks together, etc.
3. Produce and share awesome fanworks (fanart, fanfiction, icons/graphics, etc.)

We do not have an activity requirement here, but it is recommended that even if you don't have the time to participate in challenges, you at least comment on others' posts every so often, cheer on your team, etc.


Communities

Activity Requirement
We do not have an activity requirement. We won't cut you from your team if you don't participate in anything for X weeks. That said, we do have an expectation that you will give our activities a try when you join, and that you be active where possible. Any of the following counts as "being active":

• Doing anything that earns points for your team (see above)
• Participating in discussions in [community profile] moogle_workshop, interacting with other members
• Commenting on fanworks

If you do at least one of the above, you will be considered an active member here. :)



Tag Banners
Tag banners (also called sigtags, sigs, etc.) are a small image people sometimes put at the bottom of their comments to identify who they are and what team they belong to. You can make your own tag banner at any point in the game, or ask someone to make one for you, but keep these guidelines in mind:

Tag banners have a max height of 200 pixels. Please do NOT go over this height because it means people have to do more scrolling. The max width is 350 pixels, although this is more flexible. If your tag banner is wider than 350 px but significantly less tall than 200 px, most likely no one will notice/mind. Be reasonable with your tag banner sizes. (Tag banners with smaller dimensions than 350x200 are of course allowed.)

Tag banners must include (1) your name or username, and (2) your team. Your team must be legible so as to help mods quickly see what team you're on for giving points and such.

You can use any image you like for your banner. The image doesn't have to be of a character from the class you've been sorted into. They don't even have to be Final Fantasy-related at all. Just be sure that you put your team on the banner, though, to avoid confusion!

Tag banners can be used in any place that asks for you to include your team name as a replacement for writing your team (voting on applications, minigame and contest activities, etc.). Some mods will award a bonus point for using tag banners at their discretion. If so, it'll be stated in the post.


Restamping
For those who feel strongly that they were put on a team they don't associate with / cannot be enthusiastic about, there will be a chance to restamp but only between games, and only with a special restamping app.

When the restamping app is posted, you can fill it out and either post it to the comm directly or email it to finalfantasylandmod@gmail.com for it to be posted anonymously.
