Pattern/Request Posting Guidelines - READ BEFORE POSTING!

Postby blackmageheart » Sat Dec 03, 2011 2:05 pm

New guidelines for posting and requesting patterns (kindly written by Lord Libidan!)

WHEN POSTING A PATTERN:
- Always post the pdf file, and when possible the pattern file.
- Always post an example of the pattern (Not the original source image) in a forum appropriate size.
- Post dimensions in 14 count as a standard.
- Do not post patterns made by someone else, unless express permission is given.

WHEN REQUESTING:
- Post the image where ever possible, and not the link.
- Try to include all relevant information (Count, size, amount of colours, etc).
- Try to post where the source image came from (website, etsy, google images, etc).
- Do not ask for a pattern/stitch made by someone else, ask the original pattern maker directly first. If found to be a pattern on sale it'll be removed.

PATTERN WIKI:
All patterns (requests and non-requests) can be found at the Sprite Stitch Pattern wiki here: http://spritestitchpatterns.wikispaces.com/

.pdf - Most common file type, cannot be edited. Can be opened on almost all computers without the need to download software.
.sth - Can only be opened with KG Chart (Free to download, for PC only). Can be edited.
.pat - Can only be opened with PCStich (Free to try, for PC only). Can be edited.

HOW TO MAKE PATTERNS:

TO CONVERT TO PDF:
PC Stitch - Embedded in program.
