    I did but I did not agree with her request. She said I did not have 10 frames but I did. I specifically counted-recounted and triple counted.

    Hi! Sometimes a host can't clearly see the requirements on a page, so they make ask for clarification. The host for that challenge is located in the Netherlands, so the time difference might play into the response time more. As a host, we do try to respond as soon as possible, but we do have lives that sometimes interfere with scrapping time!
    Let's give her a chance to respond.

    I am not rushing a response-but the question still stands. This is for questions and answers. I am confused about what to do if I try to comply but my layout is not accepted. This is an important question for me because as it becomes closer to the deadline you do not have days to wait for a response. I understand that everyone is not on the internet all the time-that was the reason for the question in the first place. What do you do if that person becomes unavailable?

    Hi there! We always strive to find a solution that is acceptable to everyone - hosts, scrappers and the other participants. Please understand that if the host requests that you make a revision to your page, it's to ensure that it fully complies with rules in a way that's fair to everyone, including the other participants who have fully complied. Without knowing the specifics of the issue, I cannot give you a definitive answer. But we will never NOT respond in a way that's very clear as to whether your page complies or not. If it does, we will let you know that the issue was clarified and all is good. If it doesn't, we will allow you time to make revisions prior to the end of MOC.

    Thank you for the answer. That is what I was trying to find out. I had a layout before that was questioned on the 30th.I was not sure how to resolve it before the deadline. I just didn't want the same thing happening this year.

    Obviously, the later the challenge, the harder it is to get to everyone quickly. Sometimes the question is simply to clarify something that isn't obvious to the host. It's why we ask that everyone read the guidelines closely, and be very clear in their credits what was used where.

    This is my first MOC, and I have two questions (well, two for now):
    1) do textures, masks, and overlays count as elements?
    2) when listing sources/materials used, do I list non-Lilypad materials?
    Thanks!

    Hi! Welcome! In general I would say that all of the items you listed would count as elements, but if you are uncertain about whether they meet the requirements of a particular challenge, you can always ask the host. If you list out clearly in your credits what items you've used to meet each requirement it will help the host see what you have done and check it off or spot any needed adjustments. :agree

    And, yes, please list the designer of any non-Lilypad items as well, just no offsite linking. :-) Your MOC layouts may be up to 25% non-TLP or retired (no longer in the store) TLP product.

    Needing clarification- The enamels from the challenges in 2019, that were packed up and gievn out...those do NOT qualify as true TLP store product/designer, correct?

    I want to use some on a page, and want to make sure I have my real TLP 75%+

    If they are not available in the store they do not count towards the 75%. Does that help?

    Good question & we appreciate you asking & trying as hard as possible to make 75%+ TLP product pages to make it easier on hosts - Do you mean the pins shared in the TLP pin exchanges? I believe they would not count as they are not in-store as is, however any you made yourself using Mommyish's pin makers would count - @bestcee would you agree?

    Like @Karen and @bellbird said, the pins from the exchange wouldn't count. They are not in the store or by TLP current designers. Making your own using Mommyish's style falls in the styles and brushes.
