Snap up a Snarky Heart Plush Clipon at the Madsylvania Etsy shop and show some attitude. Six styles are available: Go Away, Piss Off, Bite Me, You Suck, Hate You and Get Lost. Shown in the photo are black with machine embroidered blood red text but if you prefer a different color felt and/or font, no problem.

Hi, your hearts are cute, but have read the community rules lately? Especially the part where adds must be clearly labled and the pictures behind a cut?

I've used LJ for over 7 years and always review the rules prior to posting. For this forum:

1. All pictures over 400x500 pixels need to be behind an lj-cut.

2. Multiple pictures must be under an lj-cut.

My photo size is: 350 x 322 pixels and since I didn't have additional photos, I didn't use an lj-cut. I noticed that other posters followed the same logic as I did and wonder my post was singled out with a reprimand. :P

You are linking to your Etsy shop, trying to sell something, so this is an ad, according to the community rules. If you read them completely, you will find, that ads are different from regular posts in this comm.

As to Advertising in this community

1. You can only posts ads IF you participate by posting NON AD projects and/or tutorials. So, in other words, you must be an active community member. At least one non ad post per month if you want to advertise. This will be checked frequently. If you haven't posted a non-ad entry a month prior to your advertisement, then you will have 24 hours to do so. If you've already been warned once before and you post a second advertisement breaking the rules you do not get 24 hours to change your entry and/or post a non-ad entry.

2. You can only post ads once a month. Please post relevant ads. Aka, something you MADE that might be of interest to craftygoths.

3. The title should also include [AD], so those who don't want to read them even with a cut, will know.

4. All ads should be behind a LJ cut. All of them.

5. If the point of an entry is to sell something and you've put a link to eBay, etsy or any sort of website or auction, it is an AD. If you just have pictures up so people can see the crafts you've made and happen to have a link to your own Livejournal (where you provide more information, aka prices, etc) then it's just shady enough to be considered a non-ad entry.

Members who break these rules more then 2 times will be removed from the community.

Not everyone reads the rules and sometimes no one alerts the mods, so these other ads slip through. I didn't so much single you out to reprimand, as react to your title asking for my snark with... snark. ;o)

The sentiment on the hearts are snarky but I sure wasn't trying to be. All fixed per ad rules.
