Commissions and Requests

commissions are currently open!
requests are currently closed!
last updated: 10/13/17

current projects:
    • Zoe - Journal Layout PENDING CLIENT APPROVAL
    • Martha - Layout, Nav, Bio/Permissions, Tracker, CR Chart
    • Tim - Layout, Nav, Bio/Permissions, Tracker, CR Chart
    • Lizzie - Nav, Bio/Permissions, Tracker, OOC Contact

Requested work is done for free, however, it will also be redistributed by me. It works the same way as commissions do with the exception of the payment and the fact that it won't be specific to you; others will be able to use the code. I do requests currently for any in-entry or profile codes. The turnaround time for requests is entirely dependent on what commission work I have going as well as what's going on in my real life, but I will nudge you when the code is complete.

in-entry/profile codes and journal layouts:
The general price range for in-entry codes, such as muselists, cr charts, navigation pages, and miscellaneous coding (basically, if you can dream it up, I can make it happen) or for profile pages is typically between $5 and $20 each. Something simple like this would run closer to $5, while something complex like this would be closer to $20. If you can explain to me or give me a sketch of what you're looking for, I can always give you a quote ahead of time (in fact, I would prefer this). That way, we can work together to find a price that works for you as well as for me.

Pre-made journal layouts start at $50 and vary in price, depending on the layout. If you see one you like in the samples below, please don't hesitate to ask for its price. Once you purchase one of these layouts, it will no longer be on sale and you will be the sole owner of that particular layout. If you want to use it on one of your journals or all of them, that's entirely up to you, so long as you do not share the code with other users.

Customized journal layouts start at $75 and price will vary depending on what kind of base style and what you're looking for. We'll discuss what you're looking for and I will give an estimate at that time. If you're working on a specific budget, please let me know ahead of time and we can discuss what I can do under the budget.

Additionally, you can bundle a journal layout and up to four matching codes starting at $100. More codes or more detailed codes or journal layouts will raise the price, as will styled comment sections, but we can discuss what you're looking for and I'll give you an estimate at that time. Just like with the layouts, let me know if you're working on a budget and I'll let you know what I can do within that budget.

Typical turnaround time is 24-48 hours for in-entry and profile codes; 3-4 days for journal layouts, but please allow up to 7 days; I'll be more specific with you when we discuss, so that you have a less generalized ETA. If for any reason, I'm going to be longer than that, I will be in touch with you. In some cases, this may result in discounts.

game bundles:
I will style your game in full for you (application, general info pages, taken list, miscellaneous pages, and a set of ads: one with an image and one without) for $50 to $75. The price per game is dictated by how many pages and how complex the codes are for it. If your game has 37 info pages but they're all the same general quick code, then it'll be on the lower end. If your game has 10 pages of complex, individualized code, then it'll be on the higher end. Again, I recommend that you ask for a quote before we get started, so that we can agree on a price that works for both of us. To add in a journal layout, the bundles start at $100.

For game bundles, I prefer you to have purchased a journal layout, chosen a free layout offered by Dreamwidth, or at least have a color scheme in mind for me to work with before I start, and I expect for you to provide me with the content (whether that be images or text), otherwise blank black images and lorem ipsum will be used and then you'll have to enter the information later. If you'd like for me to log into your mod journal and install all of the codes for you as well as create a mod reference post with instructions and helpful hints for you to continue maintenance after the job is complete on my end, I'm happy to do that. Honestly, I'd prefer it, because it's easier for all parties if I can just get into the mod journal and install everything. Once I'm finished, obviously I would suggest changing the mod journal password for security purposes. For modifications made to journal layouts that others made, please ask. This will be included in the price for the bundle and there will be no extra charge.

(again, note: I do not take credit for the journal layouts. I'm happy to install layouts for you, when you find one you like and I'm happy to make recommendations to help you find one, but I did not create any of these journal layouts, nor am I taking any credit for them.)

NOTE: *all openly accessible info pages and navigation pages were styled by me unless otherwise credited (see settings page which is credited to [insanejournal.com profile] tessisamess but was modified by me); one players only accessible page was not styled by me, but rather by [community profile] thebloodwoods and the financials, commissary, and activity check pages were done by the mod, not by me.

**Rules/FAQ were modified by me but the credit for the original code goes to [community profile] pagans

***Application is not my code and was taken from (and is credited to) [insanejournal.com profile] tessisamess.

so, you want to commission my work:
Awesome! I can't wait to work with you! Here's how this works.
  1. Comment below under the section specified for requests or commissions, depending on what you're looking for.
  2. We'll exchange contact information and discuss details. This is the step where you'll want to provide me with ideas or sketches and we'll negotiate pricing if you're commissioning.
  3. I'll put the code together and when it's complete, I will send you a screenshot. If you approve that final product, you'll then send me your payment via Paypal (my Paypal email is mistojen@gmail.com). Please do not send the payment as a gift, because this is against Paypal's TOS. Make sure that you're covering the extra fees from Paypal so that I'm being paid the agreed upon amount. If, upon viewing the screenshot, you'd like me to make changes, please let me know and I will continue to work on it. Payments need only be made once the final product is approved by you.
  4. Once I receive the payment, I will either install the code for you or send you the code for you to install — we will have discussed how you'd prefer to receive it ahead of time.
  5. If you like my work, hopefully, you'll leave me a review below!

Throughout the process of the job, I will be accessible via my Plurk ([plurk.com profile] mistojen), email mistojen@gmail.com, or private message. I also have an AIM if you'd prefer to use that. If so, please ask.

terms of service:
  • Commissioned work will not be redistributed by me. Please do not redistribute your commissioned code. The whole point is to have something that's individualized and custom-made for you.
  • While I won't redistribute the custom-made codes from commissioned work, I did create the code for them and retain the right to use screenshots of that work for samples. You may not remove credit from the code nor claim it as your own.
  • You can re-use the code you paid for anywhere or as often as you want as long as it's for personal use. Again, please do not redistribute your commissioned code.
  • If something breaks in the code within one year of the completed project, there will be no charge for me to fix it within reason. This does not extend to code that is broken by extensive modification on your part. For example: if you broke the code by trying to plug in images or change text or colors, I'm happy to fix that for free within the year. If, however, you've tried to change the code itself and you've broken it, there will be a $2 charge to fix it. After one year, there will be a $2 charge to fix minor code breaks or a $5 charge for extensively modified code that has been broken.
  • Any charges less than $5 may be given in Dreamwidth points, so please ask about this option if you would prefer it.
  • I don't foresee this being an issue, but I reserve the right to end a project for problematic clients. Refunds will be available in this instance and will depend on how much work has been put into your code before I call it done, since I'm putting time and effort into the work — if I'm nearly finished by the time this occurs, then no refund will be available. Note that this is for extreme cases only and that, again, I don't foresee this being an issue. I will always do my best to work with you and I can imagine it would take an awful lot for me to decide that it's not possible to work with you, as such.

The Computer could not have asked for a more glorious high programmer. Your work will stand the test of time and tyranny...

No, but seriously, thank you so much for your help in stylizing these pages for me and making my code dreams come true. As you know, I had no idea where to start. You were also very patient with me as I asked you to make tiny, probably insignificant changes until I was satisfied. I love the individual pages you designed and appreciate your hard work. I especially love the ease of plugging and posting a nice ad and day templates that you left me in screened comments. It's exactly what I wanted.

My experience with [personal profile] mistojen was overwhelmingly positive. She volunteered to help me with my game to make things pretty when I said I was garbage with coding, and she was professional, fast, and helpful every step of the way. We were able to complete all of the pages for my game in less than a week, and the pages look absolutely gorgeous. She also left me codes and samples so that I could easily edit and make changes as necessary.

I had no problems trusting her with the mod password and access to the game files. My trust was never abused. She was very responsive to feedback and quick to not only create pages, but implement changes as requested. She made several suggestions for searching image art and page styles, and I often trusted her to take liberties with styling the page if I had no particular preferences.

I have no complaints whatsoever. Whenever I sent a message, I got a response back within the hour, if not sooner. She's pleasant and easy to work with, and I would highly recommend hiring her if you want to create a game. Worth every penny and then some!

You're fast, and the playlist code is amazing and everything I had in mind. Now I just have to narrow down my playlist so many choices /sob so I can put this beautiful code to use.
