Firebender Layouts
Hey, just taking a moment to delurk and tell you that I'm happy to hear you're taking time for yourself. There's a distinct difference between being selfish and caring about yourself, and I'm glad to hear you care enough about yourself to be sure YOU are okay, first. Best wishes from my end.

And thank you.  I really, really wanted to get your theme done before I crapped out completely, and I have it about 1/3 of the way there.  I’ll make sure it’s extra nice for you for being so patient.  Just…as soon as I can think again.  <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

I hope you start to feel better soon. ono Take your time, dear. Health definitely comes before themes.

Thank you.  ;A;  I lost 14 followers pretty much immediately…talk about depressing.  I’m not gone, I’m just not feeling up to wrangling HTML right now.  With 60-100mg of morphine per day in my system, everything I do is more error than code right now.

Just so everyone knows, my health is kind of tanking.  I WILL do layouts I owe people.  …Eventually.  I love you all very, very much, but my health has to come before layouts, or else there won’t ever be more.

For the people who feel like she did, remember you’re not alone. If anybody needs to talk for any reason, contact me here or on my personal. I want to help if I can.

So, I was wondering if there was a way to put a google webfont on a layout that doesn't come with it in the coding?

It’s kind of a big faff-on, if you let me know which layout you want it on, it’d be faster for me to just edit it in than explain.

Layout

I was wondering if you could make a dark themed layout for roleplayer.me. Ive been trying to find one but im tired of trying to figure out the coding. If you could make one for me that is easy to navigate and easy to change i would have no problem with paying you. im jus tired of searching. thanks in advance

See how this is a blog full of tumblr themes?  Yeah.

Hi - I don’t really have a specific request just for me, but I was wondering if you could make a theme for like, a ‘main; RPG blog? Something kind of professional looking and organized, almost like a website (not a standard Tumblr look) with a couple areas for news/updates/announcements, links, of course, and a couple other areas to be used for whatever. Maybe staff/admins/mods, a small faq area, whatever. Just something easy to navigate that has all the necessary information right up front. Not sure if this is too vague, but just an idea. If you want, I can make a more detailed request specific to what I want for my RPG, but it’s not needed - just thought it would be a good general idea for any RPG blog :)

It’s a good start, but I’d need more info to really do something with it.  Also I have another person ahead of you that I’m really dragging my feet on, despite my best intentions not to.  I want to get his layout done before I commit to anything else, but if you come up with a more solid idea, it’ll go on the list.

Hi! I don't have a question.. But I really want to thank you. I love this theme, and I love all of them, but I don'ts have enough muses for all of them so it makes me sad T _ T. But thank you lots for taking the time to make these! You're a really awesome person! And thank you for putting up with all the questions, I don'ts think I can do that, too much work. I love both your blogs and you! Thank you! (I mainly speak chinese so I'm sorry if sounds funny ^ ^')

Ni hao!  Renshi ni wo hen gaoxing!  ^_^  Wo ai xue Zhongguo yuwen.  <3  Duibuqi, wo zhiyou(?) xie pinyin.

…..And that’s the extent of my Chinese.  You don’t sound funny.  <3  Thank you for your appreciation, it means a lot to me.

Could I possibly be able to add the main navigation (ask, submit, archive, home) manually? I prefer it to be in just text form and all... Also, the credit, if you are worried about that, you could do "Install theme" like some people do under the dashboard button or you could put it in the corner or something. idek But, thank you so much. (: You're the best.

That requires getting hooked up with the Theme Garden, and I find that’s way too much faffing on than I have strength to do.  By the time I get something coded I just want to slap it up and call it good.

And leaving them as ‘putting in manually’….  Where do you think that would GO?  Like, literally, where?  That’s the problem.  And if I left it manual, 99% of people would not put it in, and then message me asking where it is and why they can’t find it.  Sadly, making themes is a bit of pandering to the lowest common denominator.

I like theme #023 but can there possibly not be the header? Also, can you change the link tabs to more blurb tabs? Sorry for sounding so rude and all. I really love your themes. <3

The header is where the main navigation is stored—home/ask/submit/archive/theme—so I can’t really get rid of it.  I wasn’t sure where else to put it, up top was the only option I came up with.  If you can think of where to put those that won’t be overlooked (generally, on the sidebar is a bad idea, people never remember those have extra blurbs), then I’ll move it there and swap out the two side tabs for you.

Yes, I would happily make a custom layout for you!

Just as soon as you read over the FAQ so you know what not to do when requesting one. Certain requests get an automatic NO.

No, I will not help you put a music player on your theme.

In addition to the fact that they're just generally rude, many audio players cause bugs and glitches for many users, sometimes hiding the tumblr bar at the top right, sometimes doing even more unpleasant things. Save yourself and your followers some trouble, and don't subject everyone to your music choices. They're probably trying to listen to their own music, and don't need yours interrupting that.

No, I will not be adding infinite scroll to any of my layouts.

I design for roleplayers primarily, and roleplayers generally want access to what they're looking for, not to scroll around forever hunting for something. Plus it bogs down people's computers. It's not as useful as it sounds.

No, I will not use 'tiny cursors' or 'tiny font'.

Roleplaying is a writing hobby, that means it needs a certain amount of readability. 'Tiny' layouts destroy that readability.

No, I will not make a layout for your character.

I am happy to make custom layouts for people. 'Layouts' refers to where things belong, not what colour they are or what picture they are. You can use any picture for anything in any of my layouts, if you want a layout with pictures of your character, you can use any of them.

The Live Previews are just examples.

That means, if you see a picture on the preview tumblr, it could be any picture! It could be a picture of your character! And all of the colours, all of them, can be changed to whatever colours you can imagine. Don't ask me to make you a layout "with pictures of {name}" or "in pink" or whatever colour. Any picture can be ANY picture, any colour can be ANY colour. You don't need to ask, and if you do ask, I will say no.

Hello, my name's Fallen. I'm an avid roleplayer here on tumblr, and I got sick of sorting through oodles of layouts designed for hipster blogs or photographers. These layouts are designed with roleplayers in mind.

If you have a dream layout in mind, describe it to me and it might turn up here!

Why Fire Nation? Because I love it. No other reason. Feel free to use these for any fandom or even for OCs!

Seriously, read the FAQ before you ask me anything. I am chronically ill, I have a limited amount of patience and an even more limited amount of energy. Asking questions I've answered a thousand times already is not cute, it's a drain on my finite mental resources. Read the FAQ before you message me.
