Hey everyone! I was just thinking about how the FAQ and Chictopia guidelines are not very noticeable on the site, and most people go to the forums to ask other members how things work, so I took the original FAQ and edited it to be friendly for the forums, and added in some more important information that has changed from the FAQ to now.

If there is anything missing, or incorrect information, please do NOT hesitate to let me know and just comment so we can all make sure that Chictopians new and old can find what they need to know in an easy instant way! :)

How do I change my username or email address?
You can’t change it at the moment, but if you prefer a different user name or email address go ahead and sign up for a different account.

What is a badge?
A Chictopia badge can be found at the My Badges link on your profile dock at the top of the page, here you can choose a badge design of your liking to put on your ChicBlog or any other outside blog. These are used to promote Chictopia or your ChicBlog so others can find it (or favorite you if it is placed on your ChicBlog).


IMPORTANT CHICTOPIAN FACTS

What is the Style Council? How do I become part of it?
The Style Council is comprised of Chictopians with 200 or more points. The Style Council is then able to vote on recently uploaded photos. When a photo gets 15 votes by the Style Council it gets put into the Style Gallery.

What is a Style Icon?
Style Icon is an honor given to those on Chictopia who have garnered a lot of attention for their great style, any member (who uploads photos of themselves) can become a Style Icon. A Style Icon is respectful and genuine member of Chictopia, those who receive fans and votes dishonestly are not given this honor. Six Style Icons are named every month, watch Chictopia’s Style Icon Page to check on who’s in the running for next month and to see current and past Style Icons.

What is a VIP?
VIP members of Chictopia can post items up in ChicSwap and are invitation only. If you would like to join ChicSwap and become a VIP, contact a current VIP member about an invitation.

What is Everybody Is Ugly and The Uglies?
Everybody Is Ugly, along with the other Ugly blogs, are the main official Chictopian blogs, in which contributing members share their ideas, thoughts, and important news about fashion. This includes trends, inspiration, and features on businesses and Chictopians who have shown interesting style on the site.

How do I get on the front page?
The most favorited photos will receive the honor of gracing the front page (to favorite a photo click on the star icon next to it). Chictopia can feature photos that do not have the highest favorite count if there is a special promotion or event happening, see those announcements for more detail.


CHICTOPIA STYLE GALLERY, VOTING, AND UPLOADS

Where do newly uploaded photos show up?
Newly uploaded photos show up under the Style Gallery tab beneath the link titled New Photos. However, only members of the Style Council are able to view new photos unless they make it into the Style Gallery. See the previous question for information on how to get into the Style Gallery.

How do photos make their way into the Style Gallery?
Photos get into the Style Gallery by getting 15 votes from the Chictopia Style Council in the first 24 hours from time of upload. In order to get on the Style Council you must have 200 Chic Points. Our staff editors help facilitate the style gallery selection by making final edits based on lighting, photo content, and blog content.

How do I know if my photo has gotten into the Style Gallery?
There are no notifications sent if you upload a photo and it makes its way into the Style Gallery, just look for yourself by searching, either the title of your post or a tag that your post is connected to. You can also narrow down the search by changing the body types, clothing types, and gender.

What are some tips on how to take a good photo for the Style Gallery?
Take a full body shot with good lighting and make sure the photo isn’t pixelated or grainy. The more shots you take, the more photos you have to choose from. Make sure your pose best shows off the clothes.

How do I vote on a photo?
Click on a photo that you want to view. Once you are taken to that post, if you hover at the top of the photo, there is a +Chic button. Vote as you see fit.

How do I upload a photo/update my ChicBlog?
On the navigation bar at the top of the page (following the Chictopia logo), the last option is to UPDATE, click on it to upload a new photo.
--Photo Blog: upload a new picture of yourself for outfit inspiration, runwayinspiration, pictures of must have items, or editorial and fashion inspiration
--What I’m Wearing: update a news feed of what Chictopians are wearing
--Chic Rewards: Promote your brand! Donate to the community and have your product be featured in the first page of Chic Rewards for two weeks
--Chic Swap: VIP Only The rules of Chic Swap are located here
--Shop: Selected members can list their items on Chictopia. Message Cheri if are interested in becoming a seller in our community.

How do I make changes to my photo once I have saved it?
Click the “[edit]” link under the photo on your ChicBlog, here you can make changes to the description, items of clothing, tagging, additional photos. You can also tag and add a poll to your photo here.

How do I upload multiple photos to the same post?
After you upload your main photo, on your chicblog, there should be an “Edit” link below your photo. Click through on that link, and the following page should have a link which indicates “Add/Remove Supporting Photos”. Click on the link and upload additional photos.

My photo made into the Style Gallery but I don’t see it anymore!
We are working hard to provide you the best fashion inspiration. Our editors and admins reserve the right to remove photos that include any of these elements:
--Poor lighting
--Image is too blurry
--Photo does not include an outfit
--Inappropriate photos
Please keep in mind that we also move photos to other galleries such as chichaves, stylebook, and inspiration.

Um, hey. First off: thanks for the excellent guide. It has cleared up almost all of my doubts. (:
I just have one left, though. Now, this may seem stupid but what exactly is a review? Thanks in advance! :)

Please explain me this! I don`t know why my photo didn`t go to the style gallery! I had 82 votes, 49 comments and 6 favorites for that photo! I saw that people with all of that much less than me made it into the style gallery and they are not even style icon! I would like to know why it`s like that, and it`s not the first time it happens to me! It looks like the photos that go to the style gallery are the ones that are chosen just because the editors want and not following the rules! Than why there are rules? In that case they should say: hey people we are chosing the ones to go to the style gallery based on our taste and not following any other rules! I am just saying that because I am a former journalist and I don`t really like to stay quiet! My photo has been posted 22 hours ago and I don`t think it will go to the style gallery anyway in the following hours!

Thanks, this was extremely helpful! I do have one other question though, how do you write an article for Everybody is Ugly? I’d love to do that, but I have yet to find any information on how to submit pieces.

I have several questions that bother me.
I would like to respond and help me in my further activities.

  • First – What it means: "Petiafi is already in your favorites list chictopians?
    How to see, where do I see?
  • Second – How I add at the “Novi Sad street life” more of my photos? What is the reason why is only one photo in the gallery? Is it possible that my photos and stories that describe them are not good? I would like to increase my gallery “NS Street Life.”
    Why do others with less votes than me, and whose pictures were poorly designed, poorly captured accurately, enter the gallery stood, and I do not? I think my pictures deserve to enter the gallery, as I try, most of them are well photographed, retouched and well lit.
  • Third – How to take badges, since I do not know the steps to conduct the copy – past?
    Help me, please, for your advice. This will mean a lot to me, so I could
    continue to enjoy and have fun while asking to my beautiful pictures.
  • I am looking forward to your response.
    Greeting from me!

This may be an uninformed question, but how do you edit or delete a review? I have not found the answer in FAQs, but in this post it states “points can be taken away if delete reviews,” so I assume it can be done. I made a mistake in my review and am trying to re-write it.
