Monkees Confessions: Mod Post

Hello, all! Just a friendly little note from Monkees Confessions in regard to submissions. Clear guidelines for acceptable submissions are laid out on the Submit A Confession page, which everyone should be sure to check out before submitting.

In particular, please note that text only submissions will not be posted. All submissions should be in the form of text pasted onto a picture. This can be done using programs such as MS Paint, ImageReady, Photoshop, Picasa, Gimp, or whatever you may find best suits your graphic-making needs. Here is an example of what a correctly submitted confession might look like: http://i52.tinypic.com/nqv96a.jpg.  

To make a confession in one of the above programs, simply take any Monkee photo you have, use the Text tool (usually a little icon with the letter “A” in it) to add text, type your text, and then save your confession. Presto! You’re done.

Please also try to make the text on the photos as legible as possible. Oftentimes, confessions are sent in with fonts in blinding colors or with the type so small or arranged in such a way that it becomes extremely difficult to read, which therefore makes MC far less inclined to post those submissions.

Finally, MC has an Ask box, but please note that this is not the appropriate place to submit a confession. Questions or comments related to Monkees Confessions are welcome here, but if you send in a confession to the Ask, it will not be posted.

Thanks so much everyone, and MC is excited to see more of your great Monkees confessions!

how many confessions is someone allowed to make??? I made one already and kinda have more Anonymous

Hey Anon. You can make as many confessions as you like, just so long as they adhere to the rules and submission guidelines that we have set down. :)

Folks, this is a good time to remind everyone that submissions must be in the form of a photo with text pasted on it. We have received a few submissions recently that have been text only, or a photo with a text caption next to it, but because they do not adhere to the submission guidelines, these will not be posted. For step-by-step instructions on how to add text to a picture, please visit the links above. Thanks very much!

Monkees Confessions: Mod Post, Please Read

Hello, folks! This is just a quick note from your Monkees Confessions mods. We have stated this before, but it seems people are still not quite understanding it, so one more time: Text submissions WILL NOT BE POSTED. 

If you go to our Submit A Confession page, you will see that we kindly ask that all submissions be in the form of text pasted onto a picture. This can be done using programs such as Paint, ImageReady, Photoshop, Picasa, Gimp, or whatever you may find best suits your graphic-making needs. Here is an example of what a submitted confession might look like: http://i52.tinypic.com/nqv96a.jpg 

To make a confession in one of the above programs, 
simply take any Monkee photo you have, use the Text tool (usually a little icon with the letter “A” in it) to add text, type your text, and then save your confession. Presto! You’re done.

Yes, we do have an Ask box, but please note that this is not the appropriate place to submit a confession. Questions or comments related to Monkees Confessions are welcome here, but if you send in a confession to our Ask, it will not be posted.

We hope that you will all take these guidelines into consideration in the future, as we have received some great submissions but have been regrettably unable to publish them due to people not following the rules. Your cooperation and understanding are very much appreciated.

Thanks so much, everyone, and we look forward to checking out your submissions!

why isnt it allowed to put the text next to the picture kennedyhalfdollar

Because we’ve decided to adhere to the posting guidelines from the old monkees-secrets community on Livejournal. It also makes for a more streamlined look, with the text pasted on the pictures, and leaves the integrity of the confession less compromised (in other words, if we posted a picture with text next to it, it’s very easy to alter the text—which we would never do, but with the text ON the picture, it shows that it was made by the submitter and the submitter alone). Honestly, we’ve had this in the rules/guidelines of this Tumblr since Day One, so it really perplexes us that people seem to be having such a difficult time with this…

monkeesconfessions:

Greetings, MC fans! This is just a friendly post from your admins, as a reminder about submitting confessions. We have received several submissions that contain a picture with text next to it, when it is clearly stated on the Submit A Confession page that all submissions should be in the form of a picture with text pasted on it. We’ve “corrected” several of these submissions previously, but it has become an inconvenience and something that we should not have to do. So please, folks: Make sure your submissions adhere to the rules; otherwise, they will not be posted. Thank you very much, and we look forward to receiving your submissions!

Reblogging this because it seems some folks may have misunderstood or not read this, as we just received yet another submission with the text next to the photo. Please, people: Do NOT submit photos with text next to them, as these submissions WILL NOT BE POSTED. If you need help with pasting text onto photos, this site helps to do the work for you.

Monkees Confessions: Note from the Mods

Hello, everyone! We just wanted to take a moment to make a quick announcement here on Monkees Confessions. You folks may have noticed that we just posted three confessions. The reason we’re drawing this to your attention is because these confessions were submitted as text posts, and so the graphics were made by us.

This is not acceptable, people. We must emphasize…again…that one of the rules of the MC Tumblr is that we will NOT post text-only confessions. (To review our submission guidelines, check out the Submit A Confession page.) The other rules are below:

  • Confessions must be submitted as a graphic with text pasted on it (text only confessions will NOT be posted. To view a sample confession, click here: http://i52.tinypic.com/nqv96a.jpg. These graphics can be created using programs such as Paint, Photoshop, Picasa, ImageReady, etc. Simply take any Monkee photo you have, use the Text tool (usually a little icon with the letter “A” in it) to add text, and then save your confession. Presto! You’re done.

  • Upload your confessions to either Photobucket, Tinypic, Imageshack (or another hosting site) before submitting to us. 

  • Secrets should be no larger than 600x600 px (pixels) in size, in consideration of non-high speed users.

In the future, we would very much appreciate it if you would take the time to  submit your confessions in the requested format, as we will not make any other graphics for text-only confessions. So please, please, please try to keep to this folks, cause you all send in great stuff, and we want to be able to post it!

As always, if anyone has any questions or comments, do feel free to drop them in our Ask box. Thanks, everyone, and we look forward to receiving your submissions!
