General Icon question  
How do you credit someone if you are using an Icon they made? I have tons of icons that I have picked up and I have no idea how to credit the people who made them. I'm betting I'm just out of luck on those but for future refrence how do I credit people? Thanks.

You go to the comment section of the icon after you upload it, and then type in a message that includes their username, or just their username. You know how to do the code for a username, right? If I was going to use that Mustang icon you posted with, I would type [lj user="mir280"], except with < and > instead of the brackets.

When you upload a userpic, there's two little boxes. One for keywords and one that says 'comment'. Put Made by <*lj user="USERNAMEHERE"*> (without ths *s) and that'll credit the person.

Thanks, that seems really easy:) I will try to do this from now on!

Re: Testing this out
Okay, I tried to credit. This is the picture I was going for, but I don't see the actual credit anywhere. When does that show up?

*noses in*
I went to your userpics page and I see the credit (apendice?) so I figure you did it right ^_^

was going to help, but the ladies above did it perfectly and it is displayed in your icons pages, so keep on crediting!
