How to join CSS-Babes?

CSS Challenge - Week 10

Mon Aug 3, 2015, 8:50 PM

Something is changing.  Surely, everyone is noticing a little bit of orange in their inboxes and on their pages.  Keep an eye on the dA Timeline as I am anticipating the upcoming birthday of our beloved deviantART will reveal some major changes.  They have been posting about galleries and profile pages and other cosmetic alterations.  Perhaps we ought to hold off on skinning whilst we wait to see what is to come.  But instead, there is a helpful tip below to change the color of the user icons.  Thanks to A-queenoffairys for the ultra quick tip.  So we can match the icons in with our skins and not be afraid!

Challenge : Sunflowers

:iconposerfan: suggested by poserfan  
There were some lovely tall sunflowers along my route to the store today, it made me smile and think of the ones I'd planted a few years ago.  They didn't come back up this year.  It was a poor spot I chose to plant them.  A downpour of rain pelts that little area where the gutter is missing from the roof.  And when they do grow, it is far too windy, like a wind tunnel...  So they all get damaged.

When I think of sunflowers, I generally think yellow, bright and bold yellow.  But they do come in varieties.  Some may have a reddish tip and they look like an autumn sunburst.  Truly lovely.  Big flowers and sunshining blooms.

Challenge : Birthday Celebrations (dA's bday - Aug 8th)

:icongillianivy: suggested by GillianIvy
As I have mentioned, deviantART's birthday is coming up!  Every year, they have big surprises for us.  Contests, events, scuzzles (I love to scuzzle!  Why has no one asked me to hide things in some clever impossible to find way that only people who know me would know where I would hide such a thing?), and new features.  This year, I am expecting there will be a huge overhaul to the site's design and the coding behind it.  Which may greatly impact the CSS community.  I'd say we should all hold on tight and enjoy the ride!

Of course, you don't have to design a dA specific skin for this challenge.  Birthday journals in general can be used year round.  Let's all get ready to celebrate!  (I think they turn 15 this year?!)

Color User Icons

Thanks a lot dA for the lovely new icons...
Trying to set the colour using .user-symbol will just have it overwritten by dA's own stylesheet, so you need to target ::before and ::after instead.
.user-symbol::before { color: #fff; } will change the outside colour (the circle).
.user-symbol::after { background: #000; } will change the inside colour (the star).
And no, it's not necessary to switch these colours around for beta symbols. Premium Core and Beta still show up as opposite colours.
Also don't try and set the inside colour to transparent, it'll just make it disappear.
I've been pulling my hair out about this since I logged on this morning so I hope this will help everyone else!
Are you ready to party? :party:

Their birthday is coming up.  So, be expecting big changes....  I am surprised they are redoing the icons already.  We haven't had these very long and everyone is just now used to it.  Senior and CV haven't changed yet.

But thanks for sharing your fix.  I don't know how the site will look next week.  A mixture of anticipation and fear.

Oh yeah, that's true :/ I guess I should leave the rest of my frantic fixes until then.

And it's a shame because I really liked the old icons, these ones not at all.

Oh, I remember you (group)! I'm intrigued and happy to see you're active again, I also read the journal you've posted about rising the group from ashes... :D
I wonder, what submission limit are you having for the members or Babies?
GillianIvy Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Members can't submit, only Babes can.  There is no limit, it is subject to vote.  And the favorites section should be open to all, I believe.  I made a lot of changes to acceptance options, hopefully I haven't fubared anything too much!  Except one thing :shifty:  shhh!  

So, submit away!  I'll be adding everything from the feature to the favorites section whether or not they are member/babe.  I think things can be submitted to both places?  I have no idea!
UszatyArbuz Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2015   Digital Artist
I see then! So the other Babies vote or co-founders? (I guess "Babies" are like Contributors) I will think about joining but I'm already in like 100 groups :panic: but being on time with the journal articles is pretty tempting... :B

I don't know either, you can try on some deviations :lol:
GillianIvy Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
SuperBabes and Babes all get voting privs and submission privs.  Only SuperBabes are able to post the blogs.  When I get a chance, I'll be adding the featured skins to the faves.  But you can try to add them there if you get to it before I do, you are welcome to.

Hi, sorry if this sounds stupid, buuuuut
I've been trying to submit a skin to dA as installable, but when I upload the css dA isn't letting me chose the proper category, only literature related categories ??

I was hoping someone in this group knew how to help me.
I'm sorry if this isn't appropriate to post here, I just want to submit journal skins to my gallery and this is becoming kind of frustrating .n.
