welcome

Hello and welcome to Meraki, a humble little petpage layout request site. Meraki was founded by me - Sarah (arcaninety) - in early August. Having been a member of this site since the Golden Era that was the earlier 2000s, I've gradually acquired what I like to think is a rather extensive knowledge of Neopian layout-making. Coding is something I discovered on this site and promptly fell in love with. And so, with the community slowing down, I decided to found a simple, to the point layout request site in order to maintain my abilities and share what I've learned with my fellow Neopians!

My style of layouts vary greatly and are therefore very dependent on your vision. Because this site only offers requests, I am able to put my all into your layout! I will do whatever it takes to get as close as possible to your vision, which means that I encourage you to fill out your form in a detailed manner. This is also about what you want!

Closed.
I am sorry to say that Meraki will be placed on an indefinite hiatus as of Dec. 8, 2016. Listers/affiliates are free to remove me at their own discretion. A lot has happened with my own life and health; I've been forced to step back for the time being.

  • - 0 request(s) completed.
  • + 1 affiliate.
  • I'm tackling Christie at Wayfarer's request now! Not much else to update. Just go ahead and keep it coming with those requests!
  • Requests are still open.
  • Requesting Rules

    Meraki relies very heavily on its requests feature. This allows for requests to be left open longer so that everyone has a fair and equal shot at requesting a completely custom layout (you're welcome). However, in order to ensure that no single Neopian spoils this idea for the rest of us, I ask that you read and follow the very simple list of rules bellow. Be sure to read the list in its entirety before completing a form. I will know if you haven't.

  • one: No theft. This seems like a given, right? Well, not exactly. Some don't understand that using any part of my layouts - even if it's a teeny tiny shred of coding - without credit is stealing and will be reported on site and without warning. Seriously people; I'm fine with you asking me to make small changes to a previously requested layout even when requests are closed (emphasis on small changes, not recreating a whole new layout), or even with you butchering the codes yourself (although it makes me cringe), so long as you provide complete and specific credit! I include my own credits on all requests and I ask that you don't edit them. I credit all resources I use along with myself. If you use additional resources be sure to provide proper credit, as your theft could be tied to me if you fail to do this (plus you're a jerk if you don't).

  • Two: Respect Myself + My Site. I am doing this for free out of the goodness of my heart, so please don't be rude to me. I cannot tell you how many times someone has spoken to me in a manner that left me feeling underappreciated. This doesn't mean you have to kiss the ground that I walk on, but be cordial and remember that I reserve the right to decline your request for whatever reason I see fit!

  • Three: That Dang Request Cap. Only one request per person per week in order to give everyone a fair shot at requesting. Don't submit more than one completed request form per week or you'll get to choose one request to be completed (if you respond telling me which request before the waiting list fills up). If you complain about this, guess what? You'll get no requests for the week! Sorry, I don't make the rules. Um, oh wait, yes I do!

    Four: Please don't rush me. Do not pester me on the status of your request. If I put you on the waiting list, please rest assured that I am working on it. I spend a lot of time on these layouts! Same goes for questioning me on when requests are going to be opened. I am doing this as fast as I can and I appreciate your patience.

    Are we on the same page? If so, include your favorite Halloween neoboard smilie in the beginning of your form so that I know you've done your homework. If you have questions about these rules, please don't hesitate to
    neomail me your inqueries. Otherwise, click on the agreement bellow to proceed to the request form and waiting list sections. Thank you so much for taking the time to read!

    I Agree to the Statements Above and Will Comply to the Best of my Ability.
  • Frequent Concerns Regarding Requests

    I don't understand/don't know what to put/et cetera for a part of the form!
    Although it's imperative that you give me an answer for all parts of the form if you want a product that reflects your wishes, it's okay to leave a part of the form blank and ask a question in its place instead. That way I can answer it and we can work something out!

    __________ has stolen your graphics/coding/resources and is claiming them as their own/using them without credit! What should I do?
    Thanks for looking out, but do not confront the person or let them know what you know. I would rather you send me the information so I can investigate and (if needed) report the loser to TNT. Confrontation makes thieves hide their thievery until they're no longer scrutinized; it does little to solve the actual problem.

    Can you put me on the list when requests open?
    Nope, sorry. I honestly am not organized enough to keep up with that sort of system, not to mention it isn't very fair for everyone else. Just keep checking back to catch requests when they're opened!

    Anything else?
    Neomail me!!!
