in with the newbies
« on: 24 May, 2003, 12:03:38 AM »
I was just wondering, being a new boy, if there is a large influx of newbie fans on this site? If so, why? Have a lot of people just started reading 2000ad? Maybe it's always like this and I'm making something out of nothing.Bring on the newbies I say.

Yeah we want more newbies.  Were hardly a closed shop..

In answer to yer question I think that mention of the site has been a lot more prominent in the prog recently and Tharg even gave us a plug 4 weeks or so back.

Id have to say, again, that this is the friendliest site Ive ever come across.  We sit chill, chat about rubbish and occasionally discuss the prog.

For "occasionally discuss the prog" read "feverishly discuss the prog the second we get our eager mitts on it each week"

The rest of the week is just for fun.
Better set your phaser to stun.

As leader of the Western realms of the board and chatroom i am pleased to welcome these new visitors and potential subjects.

remember newbies..   if you want a nice little title to sounds more impressive, i might just be yer man.  If yer heading up North then bou;s yer girl but be sure to avoid the Trouty lands.

You have been warned.

Lots of newbies, lots of grey squares. Individualise yourself with an icon.


How do I get an icon on the message board?
Choose your icon
Icons are 32x32 pixel gifs.
There are many examples on the website already, just check the properties of the image you want to find its name.
If you can't find a suitable icon, you can create one and send the image to binaries@2000adonline.com
Animated gifs are permissable, but should be no larger than about 5k
If you can't create one, ask on the message board and someone will make one for you
Icons will usually be uploaded to the site the same working day, assuming there are sent while I am at work.
Follow the link to the database chat room (below)
Type "/icon xxx" where xxx.gif is the filename for your icon.
Find a message on the message board you have previously posted to check. Icons are backdated, so you don't need to write a new message to test them.
Enjoy your new found expression!


If you need one made for you, ask the board and someone will gladly help.


Best 'o luck

James

Thanks karne,

I shall try to get some time to improve  it further with this wonderful bit oc technology i now have.

The colour change was more to save byte size.  I hope Mr Trout doesn't mind too much.
