GSM guide for new players
This guide will be updated as I become aware of more commonly asked questions.

Table of contents:
1. How to make money
2. How to earn fame
3. Where did people get unique items that weren't sold in game
4. How to trade
5. How to edit profile
6. Problems receiving money/item from auction
7. Problems uploading pictures
8. Magazine spread size for layouts


HOW TO MAKE MONEY
- Playing games, especially Wardrobe Challenge is really worth it once you learn to play it
- Taking part in forum games (such as dress up), they often have a reward; it's obviously decided by the person hosting the game but it's not uncommon for it to be gifts, diamonds or goMoney
- Auctioning items from your wardrobe or selling them
- Taking part in giveaways
- If you have VIP, you can also earn money from the VIP pinball
- Flying pigs
- Trading supergreetings for gM or diamonds


WHAT GIVES YOU FAME AND HOW MUCH DO YOU GET
Sketzmo - the amount depends on how hard the word you're guessing is. At most you can get 24 per correctly guessed Sketzmo
Wardrobe - the amount depends on how far you get in the game, it increases with each level you pass
Greeting - you get one fame point per one greeting, and therefore if you receive a super greeting, you'll receive 50 fame points
Magazines - you get 100 fame points per each magazine sold
Profile views / adding to contacts - these give you 1 fame point each

and I actually don't know how much you get if somebody takes your goTest
+ level perks allow you to eventually (or with enough diamonds) unlock perks where pigs will carry fame in addition to money & games will give more fame as well


WHERE HAVE PEOPLE GOTTEN UNIQUE ITEMS NOT SOLD IN STORE
They are perks from Indiegogo from before gsm relaunched. The perks are no longer available so if you want those items, your options are getting them from an auction or buying from someone who's willing to sell


HOW TO TRADE
Go to your wardrobe, choose the item you want to use for trading, press "Trade". There's a searchbar that lets you choose the model you want to trade with. Then it'll let you choose what you want to trade for (diamonds, goMoney, VIP days". You can also press on "Click to choose" if you want to trade for items.

Note: if you can't press "Trade" on an item it's because it's not possible for that item. An example of such an item would be the items you got when you created your model. In order to trade you must be level 6.


HOW DO I ADD SCROLL BOXES IN MY PROFILE? TIPS FOR PROFILE EDITING?
Here's a great forum that has useful tips for creating a profile! http://gosupermodel.com/community/forum_thread.jsp?id=17068&page=12&offset=220#page1


I DIDN'T RECEIVE MY ITEM / MY MONEY FROM AUCTION
Auctions currently work with a delay, which means it'll take some time for the process to go through. On average you'll have to wait about 15 minutes.


MY PICTURE ISN'T GETTING APPROVED BY MODS / I'M GETTING AN ERROR
Mods don't currently have access to reviewing pictures, which means the pictures you upload with gM or free picture uploads earned through pinball will not show up in game for the time being. This is something that's currently being worked on by the staff.

Common reason for getting an error when uploading a picture is the file size - the maximum file size is 300kb. Make sure your picture doesn't exceed the limit.


WHAT SIZE SHOULD I MAKE MY MAGAZINE LAYOUTS
The size for a spread is 717px X 504 and the size for one page is half of that!
