Oh...I am sorry for disturbing... 
But I have a question..Is it real to make this on the top of my group (the Sticky entry, on the top of the group)…
My group is history-of-ukraine.deviantart.…

But without this problem history-of-ukraine.deviantart.…

And who can make this for points?  I can not pay by money...
thank you

And wanted to ask if someone would like to enter.

(If I'm not allowed to ask this here in the comments please tell me, then I won't ask again.)

Hi! I made my first skin, but I'm not sure if I did it correctly. I can't try it out because I don't have PM. Could someone of you test it and give some feedback? It's here:

how do you put the skin on your page?
CherieNoir Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
You click the install button to the right when you're viewing a skin.

Hello, I'm looking for someone to assist me with a skin I'm making, I've most of the stuff I want done, but there are a few spots I'm not sure how to progress. I'd be willing to give points if you are able to remedy my situation. In case you're wondering what issues I'm in need of assistance with:

:bulletred: I want to make the journal automatically adjust if/when the 'Mood', 'Playing', 'Eating', etc sections are filled out (I can't seem to get it to work).

:bulletblue: I'd like a border going around the entire journal (I suppose I could just upload a background that has the border already in it and make it my background?)

Thanks for any assistance with this.

I have a journal skin design that i've managed to make work on a normal browser, can be found here:…

But when i've tried to make it into a journal skin on dA, the images don't match up and some are moved etc. I've tried to fix it myself and i keep coming across these pictures of boxes with loads of code in and honestly, it means absolutely nothing to me. I'd be grateful for some help.
