My neighbors? You mean the guy in the cell next to me? Ah, we're good buddies.

You're a miracle worker. I couldn't figure out how to stretch that wider than 600px.

No, please don't go there, Taint.

No, retro is function keys on the fucking left, where Cthulhu meant them to go.

Ja, ten years of graphic design in NYC are useless in the face of so many MS Paint professionals. You send up a flare when you know what you having. I've got other tables to bus...

Header Upload and maintenance page

give her a spin, all you can do is view headers, view display counts, upload new headers (everyone) and turn whether a header is displayed on and off (if you are at least a moderator). Let me know what should be changed.

Display counts are from late last night, so they may appear small.

Taint, man, you're brilliant. Larry Craig is my favorite, and in fact I want a christmas card of it.

"Taking a wide stance on the holidays" or something.

By the way, there are two of us at the Toe household, me and mr toe-so if you don't like something I post on the pic thread, it's his.

I have modified the header maintenance page to only allow images from 400-800 pixels wide and 100 to 300 pixels tall. Deca, I disabled your new one for it's height. Larger images screw up our ability to make other changes to the interface.

I don't run this show and am making my own rules as I go, so any objections should be aired here and I will abide by the feelings of the group.

At such times trial by combat will be declared and the person who survives will select the whether the image is displayed or not. If, in event, the two combatants are too closely matched and the victor dies within 24 hours of the end of combat, both bodies will photographed in obscene and insulting sexual images with each other and all headers will be replaced with these photos in standard jpg at 800 x 400 pixels edited in MS Paint.

1. I want vidz of the Steel-Cage Moderator Deathmatch. No claymation allowed.

2. 800 x 300 alternating with 400 x 100--and those in between, as we will invariably end up with some banner size queens in here--looks odd. You should dictate parameters for a fixed width, file size and type. Someone will eventually get bored enough to make a 1.8 Mb aniGIF of "Hello Kitty Cthulu." That someone might be me.

3. Seriously tho, this sorta thing doesn't always work well by committee. I'm not being a PhotoShop masochist, but I would love if someone gave me a challenge (as averse to "assignment," as I sense no financial consideration in the offing) to produce an image or two. You don't want to end up with a rotating cast of Buttsecks, Felching, and Dubya images, do you?

I usually stroke with my left so I can still type.

I don't have authority to set boundaries around here, I'm just a techie. I have set the boundaries above based on the headers that were already submitted (except for Deca's and Feisty's images which are too tall to fit properly at all, or the text is smushed to the point of being difficult to read.) My preference is for the largest size possible 800 x 300, I think it makes the page look best, but I don't care enough about it to make a serious issue of it, the smaller sizes don't adversely affect the page layout and I wish to error on the side of more people submitting.

I have actually, on my own moderator authority, dropped two images, both from you, that I didn't dig, the creampie image, which just turns my stomach and I can't look at, and the fatguy walking in front of fire with sections of fire missing, which looks dumb and I doubt you wanted it posted at all. You can go an overrule me. Then I can overrule you, and round and round we'll go, all nice and anarchistic. I have no problems with this, it's just the fucking header after all.

If it gets to be a serious issue, we can add locks to strong objections or voting, either work for me and would be easy to implement. We just trying this thing out, lets see how it goes. Plus, only moderators can elevate a header to display (or demote it) and I trust their judgements on the matter than mine alone.

If none of this makes sense, blame the flu (which I thought I had beat) and the combination of anti-histamines and marijuana. I'm having my own personal day of the dead.

Would you, could you, do something with a pic of someone using a guillotine to cut off part of his or her own body?  I was looking for stump grinding services and got suckered into the self-mutilation corner of the hweb.

I really liked the fat guy in red shoes.  Maybe the fire background wasn't well executed, but with the "All dressed up & no place to go" caption, I thought it fit.  Then again, I'm growing to like life in Bushwick.  Thx  & feel better.

Let's dispose of that ambiguity. You do have the authority.

I'm torn of two minds on this. I agree with your decision but pALEPHx with his bowels in an uproar is too much fun to miss.
