Guild Rules

  1. Users are not allowed to message other users soliciting them as guild members. This is considered spam. If you need to recruit members, you must do so within your Guild Home.

  2. Users are not allowed to ask people outside of their guild for donations. Your guild members should help finance your guild.

  3. Guild Officers cannot accept members into the guild and immediately remove them. This is scamming. Guild members must be allowed to stay in the guild for a minimum of 14 days. If there is an extreme reason why the member should be removed from the guild prior to the 14 day period, please PM angieluvboo explaining the reason. This will protect you should the member file a complaint.

  4. If you hold a contest or event in which you commit to giving a prize to the winner's guild, you must follow through on this commitment. Failure to do so will result in you being fined the amount promised plus an additional fee.

  5. Members quitting Diva Chix are not allowed to donate large sums to any guild. If done, these funds will be removed from the receiving guild.

  6. Please respect all other guilds and their members. Healthy fun competition is encouraged, but be sure to be respectful.

  • G.O.C. Voting Chit Chat

    As an interesting chit chat at least to me after voting. I will say I didn't give any 5's and few 4's on this Kogal one.

    Here is the site I found for Kogal.

    http://www.japaneselifestyle.com.au/fashion/kogal.html

    IMO, I think most got the Uniform idea but really didn't grasp the culture of the fashion.

    I will also say because this has been really interesting to me and is worth at least one point when voting is the description. Some people put together awesome outfits and nothing in the description. Ding! What would have been a 5 is now just a 4 to me. Others cut and paste what they read on Wikipedia which is fine. However, in this case it wasn't totally reliable source of the culture of the fashion. I used the School Girl images as I was limited to shop items. That's not all the dressing up Kogal is so I was surprized to see almost everyone wearing one.:)

    My question is this; do any of you count the description in your voting? And, how many actually investigate a fashion culture when one comes up like this. I saw one that had a beautiful outfit with a japanese face and really wasn't based on the actual Kogal culture I had in my mind and no description. I just didn't know how to vote on that one.*wink* I wouldn't give it a one, but it drove me here to ask those questions.

    Just curious what you guys look at when voting. That goes for non-guild members too. Wondering if they know what they are voting on or do they just vote.

    I also wonder if members would like maybe a blurb at the top of a theme so people who haven't entered the theme know what it is they are voting on.

    I did google the culture, but I wasn't totally satisfied with my outcome! I just have trouble locating the kinds and styles of clothes when I'm looking and I usually get really frustrated and just "settle", which is bad, but I enter every single GOC, so I don't like to spend forever on one GOC, you know? I guess I'm lazy!! & also, I try to always add a description. I feel like it would take away from my votes if I didn't describe what I was going for! lol. So, I'm with you on that one!

      I don't consider the description. I'm too lazy to read them and too lazy to write them as well lol. But I know others ding for no description. I'm just too lazy to make something up to get that extra point. lol

        lol I am guilty of copying and pasting from whatever comes up when I google a GOC too. There are some I just find hard to write a description for! lol But its okay to be lazy, Angie! We all are at times! Anyway, I guess people got what I was going for with my Kogal Fashion GOC because I got first! Last time I looked, my score was like 2.7 So I was SHOCKED!!! But oh well, I'm happy! (:

          Well just with you two responding it would appear if your one that writes a description your vote includes the description. Makes sense.:) I'm so goofy late at night. I just looked and I did a CYO on that one.rofl Congrats Jenna.

              The description has some importance to me when voting, it varies how much. I want to understand how people have been thinking when they made their entries, and sometimes it's hard to see the connection to the theme when there's no description. That will bring down the score for me.

              On the other hand, when voting on the Tacky theme entries today, it didn't really matter if there were any descriptions, because the outfits were kinda talking for themselves.

              I always write descriptions for my own entries. I try to keep them short so more people will bother reading them. ;)

                I will take a description into account - usually if the doll doesn't seem to fit but the decription clarifies it. But I don't require one. Actually prefer if the outfit speaks for itself - if the outfit fits the theme so well it doesn't need one.

                I browsed through some entries yesterday but they didn't seem to fit the theme ... It is a style of dress in Japan, but it is not only school girl uniforms. And I didn't think it was a style of dress outside of Japan where people dressed up in Japanese school girl uniforms (what most of the entries I saw looked like).

                I thought maybe I was wrong on what the theme was supposed to be, when that happens I just vote whether I like them or not, but I wasn't really liking any of the ones I saw yesterday...

                I decided I was going to end up voting too low so I ended up not voting yesterday.

                  Can I put this here?

                  How did you vote today on the ones that seemed to be in regular outfits? I mean not tacky as far as I can tell? And what about the one without a body? What is the deal with that?

                  I want to vote low on those. Or am I misunderstanding something?

                  Do some people just enter whatever they are currently wearing whether it fits the theme or not?

                    I have wondered this with a lot of entries in the past! lol I voted low if they didn't look tacky. To me, tacky is simple. Just don't match & wear lots of colors/patterns!! I see that all the time on here, so I was looking forward to seeing some pretty interesting entries. But yes, the one without a body I was like "Whatttt?" But I thought it may have been their mistake or something.. idk. And there were like at least 3 people in just a regular outfit. Maybe they didn't know what tacky meant? Idk.. I really tried with my entry, because I thought this was a really fun subject! & right now, my score is actually really decent, so I hope people can see that I tried!!

                      I look at a description if I need to, but I don't "deduct" if there isn't one. It's not too important to me, but like Liz, I like there to be one if there isn't an obvious correlation between theme and doll.

                      If it doesn't really fit the theme to me, I vote a three, if it fits the theme but it's not great, I vote a four and if it's great, I vote a 5. I will sometimes vote a two if there is just a regular doll in a theme that is obviously not a plain clothes theme, and I never vote a one. It also doesn't matter to me if it's shop or CYO...I honestly don't even look at that. I vote as I stated regardless :)

                          Those do bug me.lol



                          I thought Tacky was kinda like the Ugly Battles. I loved most of the diva's and it was fun to see tacky and what people tried to do with that theme. I was giving 5's left and right.rofl I have no clue what my Diva is doing as I haven't looked. I guess I'll go check it out.:)
