Just to make sure I've my place for silly experiments back ...
Avatars are not supposed to be bigger then 100x100. I think you can get away with them being 125x125 but 100x100 seems to be the norm.
Also, the banners aren't supposed to be bigger then 500x75. Richard's rules.
[quote:a329cfcb87="Willowspring"]now how do i have the banner become the link to the site *ponders* me stupid![/quote:a329cfcb87][quote:a329cfcb87="WiseShaman"]Willow,
You need to use the anchor tab, like this:
a href="http://s43.photobucket.com/albums/e368/Wiseshaman1969/EQ/?action=view¤t=" target="_blank">
Only use the link to your banner here...not mine. [/quote:a329cfcb87]

[quote:b0f8a49783="ElfTanner"]Joselle dear - you need to update your first page again. I went looking for Moonshade art that you have done to ask your permission to post it on my Moonshade site and ended up searching through all 130 some odd pages to find them all. I knew you had done a Moonshade card for your series, and one of her as a chibi, but Ifound others as well. May I use them on my Moonshade site?

The original bursts my screen :x
... and when I try to copy it in a normal text program I'll lose the layout ... unreadable mess again :roll:
... so THIS was the easiest way.
[quote:03eb36b61b="spiritofthewater"]In case anyone want bigger versions of the Leetah and Dewshine picture you can use these links:
[color=red:461302c59b]EMBALA! I FREAKING [i:461302c59b]LOVE[/i:461302c59b] YOU! where did you find those?[/color:461302c59b]
What are YOU doing here? Bringing a Broccoli in to make matters worse!
I hoped to get rid of all this hyper eatables in the "Tree and Lobster"! :roll:
Oh ... you want to take them with you and care for them? :D Thankies! :hug:
Found Strawberry, Orange, Onion, Tomato and ... perhaps more, but you must catch them yourself!
These are Icemoon's ... and for Icemoon

Perhaps I can expand a bit on Faerydae's post.
1) Go into your album and call up that very photo you want to use
2) When it shows in your browser, select the entire URL from the address bar and copy it
3) Go to the forum and create a new post
4) Write whatever (or not) and then position the cursor where you want the photo to appear in the post
5) Click on the little picture frame icon at the top of the window where you're composing your post (after the bold, italic, smilies, etc. icons)
6) When the "image" window opens up, paste the URL that you copied into the field. You may have to backspace/delete the existing "http://" that they provide for you as you dont want to have two of those in the field
7) Click "submit" and that should be it.
I have to admit, however, I don't know if that will post the link, or the actual photo image into your post, as I haven't tried it yet. Can anyone clarify?
(to answer fairigirl's offer, look on the dashboard, I think, then, click on "you've a friend request", then, one I accept", I think it's that)
GLAD TO SEE YOUUU !!!
Thank you, Icemoon! Very glad to see you too
Just spamming your thread here Embala! My own testing site has been eated...
Right... let's see...
Like the pic!
quoting multiple posts: Just click on that symbol on all the posts you want to quote, then click on "Go Advanced" under the reply field and you will get a text editor with all the posts you want to quote in it.

Folks, this thread is for testing, not for posting - if you're happy with the results of the test, there are other threads where you can post and ooh and ahh (in fan art, perhaps). Thanks!
Edit: Doesn't quite work like the old one...
Nuuh-uh ... not a good idea, Redhead. You shouldn't play around with size codes!
When I cleaned one of my threads I missed to delete one of the old size codes properly - and the remains messed up the thread completely.
And I mean - completely - totally - disastrous !!!
*shock of the month*
It was only luck that I managed to jump back and delete the source of chaos
*deep sight of relief*
I see what you mean... looks like there are two options here; normal... or... big!
And if you don't end it properly everything that follows will be infected - not only the post but the whole layout - starting with the user name and ending with the Quick Post aera. You even won't find the icons for editing or delete anymore.
So - LET.IT.BE - please!
So no tiny writing?
Is this better?
Or maybe this?
Just... have to try it... :banana:
The blue has the greatest impact! every things in harmony in that one.
WOW Beautiful Embala!!! Disaster image!!! Amazing!!
Code waiting for Lonetree
<a h?ref="insert your picture URL from the album, ending with _500"?>[im?g]insert your picture URL again, this time change the ending to _150[/im?g]</?a>
You have to remove the 5 ? I put into the code to make it show this way.

Useful thread: A Breakdown of What's What
Try of a Reader's Guide:
It's not "the ultimative reader's guide" but good enough for a smooth read. I'll try to give you some information about the different series so you can decide by yourself.
Siege at Blue Montain
King of te Broken Wheel
Dreamtime - happens shortly after the return of the Palace ... awesome Wendy art
Hidden Years #4, #8, #9,5 and #10-15 - single issues filling gaps and giving background information for the time from the return of the Palace until the main story lines SHARDS and HIDDEN YEARS start. Read before starting with Shards and the rest of HY!
Main storyline - Shards (#1 til #15) and Hidden Years (from #16 til the end) - run parallel and influence each other. Shards #10 / HY #24 and Shards #12 / HY #25 are directly connected - read the Shards issue before you look in the corresponding HY issue - spoiler warning!
About same time as Shards and Ember's Hidden Years storyline
New Blood #14-35 - Forevergreen Arc ... no direct connections with Shards/HY but it has necessary informations about the Sunvillager's and Windkin's fate.
Would be no fault to read New Blood #11, #12, #13 before you start the Forevergreen Arc with NB #14.
Shards #16 gathers both the three story lines and the scattered elves.
Here you should read In All But Blood - it starts with Cutter's youth, a story about his early time in the Sun Village, a story centering on Skywise somewhen after the return of the Palace. The last is the important one: Full Circle closes a time and knowledge gap between the end of SHARDS and the two (so far) final stories ...
Searcher and the Sword - following Cutter's tribe after Shards
Discovery - follows directly SatS
NOT in Digital EQ: The Final Quest Special ... the brand now issue that introduces the new FINAL QUEST story arc
... that's what would make most sense for me to read in row from EQ1 until "present time" (= The Final Quest Special) ... waiting for the Final Quest to start in January
more or less parallel with SatS / Discovery
Wild Hunt - following Ember's tribe after the Shards War
Mender's Tale (unfinished) - following Wild Huntprobablymaybe concluded in the Final Quest
The Forevergreen Story arc is more or less followed by
Worldpool - following some chars from the Forevergreen Arc, followed by
Fire-Eye ... unfinished
both probably "non-canon"
Other series and single issues:
Tales from the elves' wild past:
Blood of Ten Chiefs
Wolfrider! - read it!
By any other name (RC "In all but Blood")
Hidden Years #5, #6, #7, #9
5 Starfall, Starrise - pre-EQ1 (story about Skywise and his parents' fate)
6+ 7 How Shall I keep from Singing - High Ones' arrival and first years
9 The Enemy's Face - story from Leetah's birth and youth
Homespun (RC "In all but Blood")
Spotlights on the time of the Long Wait (disappearance of the Palace until Big Sleep)
Hidden Years #1, #2, #3
1 Wolfwood - during Long Wait (centering on Strongbow - I love it)
2 Going Back - during Long Wait (Kahvi "visits" Sorrow's End again)
3 Little Patch - during Long Wait (Tyleet's "cub")
The Jury (?)
New Blood #11, #12, #13
Background Story of the Wavedancers
Wavedancers Issue #1
Wavedancers - lost chapters (unfinished)
... it might be less puzzeling to read it after Discovery (some inconsistencies and retconning)
Somewhen in not too far future
Rogue's Curse - following Rayek's journey after Shards
Havn't listed all
The rest of New Blood is a mix of Wild Past, Long Wait, various Misc stuff ... many of it considered non-canon
same for Bedtime Stories
Elfquest Volume 2 - containes stories that are mostly listed and reposted in collections (ask if you want to know more ... same for stories I missed to mention)
Kings Cross - a "What-If" / alternative universe story ...
Xanth - something totally different
There is no easy way to read through - you'll have to pic when you want to follow the time line.
As you will notice some of the stories can be found in several topics. The Elfquest Vol. 2 issues have several ongoing stories in each issue - and then and now a single one. Many of these stories are gathered in collections:
Dreamtime, Wild Hunt, Wavedancers, Rogue's Curse, Wolfrider to mention just a few.
You can stick with the gatherings to follow my suggestions ... Elfquest Vol. 2 is a read for "completation" when everything else is done in my opinion.
Don't hesitate to ask in case you need more information - or help to find some issues/collections.
Welcome to the pack Enjoy and have fun! Good read!

How to post links?
Yay! It worked!
Eeeh... how do I put text in?
Posting these here by Embala's request so she can quote the code and better see the differences in getting image-based links to work in the new site setup...
The first image is from her photo archive here at the scroll, the second is from my Photobucket account.
EDIT: Y'know, the ability to preview posts to check for coding errors would be really nice...
Insuring neatness is a delicate matter.
For most of my avatar pictures, it asked me for some efforts, and I had to abandon, for many of them, not able to get a correct effect.
Mainly, the technical approach consists in reducing step by step the picture, with mainly a division by 2 or by 1.5 of its size, in order to NOT create more binary blurring.
1. prefer basic sizes like 256, 512, 768, 1024
2. Reduce the size with NEATNESS already in mind: check each result at a very small preview
3. Increase luminosity and contrast, SLIGHTLY, the more reduced the picture is
4. Beware of the JPG format and set the compression ratio (if you can) precisely.
I followed all of this for most of the pictures I worked on, and it pays.
and another thing: very often,the Web navigator ADAPTS BY ITSELF the size of a picture, thus creating binary blurring when the size is either not very clean or not easy to resize (ie not at sizes worth 2^n). Keep all this in mind.
Happy New Year!
