★ mmmm


For once these are not rule changes, but please read.

The eglfeedback community had some help and managed to make all the requested pages so far!

Now there are a few things for you to do:

Check if your page has been made right:
- go to the tag for the first character of your username. Here is the tag list:
- [e.g. I would go to "~l" to find "laviefantasque"] and find your page,
- go over the numbers and links,
- comment on your page if something is wrong.

Keep your link handy.
- We are in the progress of updating the alphabetized lists, however this is not finalized so don't freak out if your name isn't on there! Just find your link through the tags and save it somewhere.

As mentioned in this post, we haven't been commenting back to people's requests with their links, because we put the time into making the pages instead of commenting back. If your comment has been deleted, it means your page has been made and you can look for it under the tags.

Everyone, please request a page now as the new rules will come into effect on May 30st.
I changed the form for requesting feedback, and mentioned some things to keep in mind. For example, some people have issue with finding their Etsy or eBay feedback links. Please read the post and fill in the form correctly.
The place to request your feedback is here.
Again, the smart thing to do when you want your feedback page right away because you're in a transaction, is to PM one of the mods! Otherwise your request will get lost in pages of other comments, and you might have noticed that doesn't go too fast.

When leaving feedback, please remember our rule #2.
It's great that you're all using the new community, but please use it well.

2. All comments must correctly follow this format.
Words are very much encouraged. If you want, you can leave a number-based rating on a scale of 1 to 5, but please describe your experience as well!

- I am the buyer/seller
- Overall experience
- Communication
- Accuracy of item description
- Shipping method
- Accuracy of estimated shipping time
or for sellers:
- Payment method
- Payment time

When linking to feedback on sales posts, for now these links are allowed
- a link to your eglfeedback page
- a link to a personal journal entry with feedback
- a link to feedback on places like eBay, Etsy, Den of Angels, etc

Notice how these things all say "links". You have to provide a working link for your sales posts to be approved! No mentions of "feedback somewhere in this journal" or "on ebay under the name xyz" and certainly no links to the old DBS, as the site is dead now.

I hope you understand and wish you all happy sales! Thanks for bearing with us, if there are any questions/comments/concerns, please comment.

What shoes are appropriate for Gothic Lolita?


I've been interested in lolita fashion for a couple of years now. I'm just starting out wearing it. I plan on making an order from bodyline soon. I want to get a pair of shoes from there. They seem to have the best quality cheap lolita shoes based on the reviews I've read.

Sigh, but most of their shoes are very sweet looking. I just recently realized that it will be inappropriate for me to wear something like the hert buckle shoes, which I had wanted :(. Based on this: they need to be platform mary janes with a lot of buckles. I was considering getting these: but that same article gives them as part of an example of Sweet-Kuro Lolita. I consider shoes to be one of the most important pieces of a wardrobe. I hope you can help me make the right choice. Which bodyline shoe (that is available in size 225) do you consider as most appropriate for a Gothic Lolita? Should I avoid hearts and bows when choosing Gothic Lolita clothing and accessories?

Getting to the beach should be no problem at there are 3 busses that go to the beach, however if transportation is an issue but you are dying to come, feel free to PM me either on FB or LJ, and we'll see what we can work out.


Problems with the Comm Sales: FIXED!

I was just wondering is this was just my problem or for everyone, but I am unable to make a sale post to the comm_sales. I get this error message. 

Error updating journal: Client error: Maximum queued posts for this community+poster combination reached.

Is there something I am doing wrong?

Petticoat storage?

I checked the memories and search function but the results were all petti reviews. So, how do you store your petti? I just hang mine up in my closet, but I was wondering if there was some "better way" to do it. :P One girl says that she squishes hers into a drawer because it makes it poofier, which seems kind of counter-productive to me, but I'm new to this so maybe it does work. :)
