Style Sheets FAQ
What is a "Style Sheet?"
A Style Sheet is your own personal profile in our photo community! Together, all members' Style Sheets form a community where people can add personal photos and comment on the outfits of other members.
How do I sign up?
In order to create your own Style Sheets or post comments, you need to register a Styleite account. You can do that here
. Once you've logged into Styleite, simply come back to Style Sheets
and you'll be all set.
If you already have an account, use the box on the right of this page to log in.
What are "badges?"
Badges are awards, displayed on your personal profile, that are handed out based on how active you are in the community. By posting more pictures and commenting on photos, you continually earn new badges to show off your style sense.
How do I upload a photo?
After you have created your profile, you'll see a link at the top of the page named "Upload Photo" -- click there to get started.
How big can my picture be?
Photos must be 2MB or less. They must be in GIF, JPG, or PNG format.
How do I tag my photos?
After you have uploaded a photo, a text box will ask you to fill in the information about your outfit. Enter the brand first, followed by the specific product, then click "Add Tag."
How many items can I have in one photo?
As many as you want! The more items you (accurately) tag, the more visible you'll be to other users.
Will I get a notification when my photo has been approved?
No, once your photo is approved, it will simply automatically become visible on your Style Sheet. If your photo has been sent back to you for changes, or if it was rejected as inappropriate, you will receive notification.
Why would one of my photos be rejected?
If your photo does not meet our community guidelines, it may be rejected by our moderators. Any photos with obscene or objectionable material will not be accepted. Don't worry -- you will be given a reason if any of your photos are rejected, so that you can try changing and re-uploading them!
How do I comment on other people's photos?
When viewing a single photo, look below the photo itself to add your thoughts.
Why can't I comment on my own photos?
You won't be able to comment on one of your own photos until someone else leaves a comment first. Just wait awhile!
Are there any rules as to what photos I can post?
Yes! Here are the community guidelines:
Please tag all items of clothing as accurately as possible depending on its designer and/or brand. Editors and admins at Styleite will make their best effort to correct any mistakes, but accurate tagging is greatly appreciated.
(The more of your clothing you tag, the more people will find your photos!)
Do not post content that is contains nudity, violence, or offensive or obscene material.
(Use your judgment -- do people really want to see that?)
Do not post copyrighted photos.
(Although if you're only posting pictures that people have taken of you, that shouldn't a problem!)
You must be the model in your photo.
(Naturally. We want you to show off.)
If there are multiple individuals in a photo, the photo will be deleted.
(Really -- how could you be the model in your photo if there are multiple people?)
All photos must show the intended outfit or item of clothing. If the outfit in a photo cannot be clearly seen, the photo will be deleted.
(We might have a laugh if you point out something on the lines of "Anton Corbijn does it," but we still can't let it through.)
You must be at least 13 years of age to join the community and upload photos.
(So sayeth the Internet Police!)
The portion of the subject's body in the frame must be sufficient to display the outfit being featured.
(Don't you want people to see what you're wearing?)
A photo comprised of up to three photos in a collage is allowed.
(Okay, we get it. Your jacket has a really sweet lining/your vintage jacket belts in the back/your dress looks really great when you're jumping into the air. Show it off!)
Do not repost any photos. One photo per outfit is sufficient.
(Just changing your tights probably won't cut it.)
Photos will not be accepted if they contain editing beyond cropping and minor color corrections.
(Let's be honest -- the Warhol meme is pretty played out by this point.)
Photos should be taken of branded, designer, and/or vintage items.
(Nothing your Aunt Nancy knitted you, unless Aunt Nancy is a professional pattern-maker.)
