Q: I want to open a shop. What do I need?
A: Perseverance and an image manipulation program! There are no formal requirements for opening a shop, no tests to pass, and no permission to gain. Simply post a thread with your desired shop rules and wait for the customers to show up. It's a big step, but a lot of fun!
Q: I can't find my thread! Where did my shop go?
A: It was probably due to inactivity! Once a thread has been inactive for a month, it's closed and archived until the owner wishes to reopen it again. This keeps the forum clean and free of clutter, and lets customers know who is around to fulfill requests. If you want to reopen your shop, PM a subforum moderator and we'll happily reopen it for you.
Q: A customer isn't giving me artist credit! What can I do?
A: Failure to credit to a shop's satisfaction is actually a forum offence! They may have simply forgotten, but if a polite reminder doesn't work, contact a subforum moderator and let the staff sort it out.
