When you click reply, above the box you'll see a bunch of icons. It's an "S" with a diagonal line through it. 2enym1s.jpg

 

Type what you want in Spoilers, highlight it, then click that "S".

 

Or just type out

 

 

 

 

 

and put your text or images in between the "]" and the "["

Hrm... it seems I don't need to do a lot of it http://www.cgccomics.com/resources/glossary.asp although it doesn't contain stuff like Timely or LCS or a few others widely used here, especially regarding OA. I can have a go in a bit.

I recommend either the first post OR the second post of the Noob Guide :baiting:

 

UPLOAD A PHOTO:

 

Generally, never post an image larger than 1000px for either Horizontal or Vertical.

You can resize large photos or scans on Microsoft Paint.

- Open the image with Microsoft Paint

- "Resize" at the top left

- Select "Pixels"

- Usually 700 - 750 for the longer side is best

 

Upload using www.tinypic.com

(You can resize here as well: Message Board (640x480))

 

Upload your image, then copy and paste the:

"IMG Code for Forums & Message Boards"

 

You can also do a Google Image search for images:

Google Images, click on the image, click "View Image", copy the link at the top of your browser, paste it using 28iyopl.gif above.

Other sites to upload:

http://postimage.org/

http://www.photobucket.com (if you use Photobucket, be advised the image will disappear after a period of time)

http://imgur.com/

:gossip: They don't read this thread anyway.

 

It's much easier to start a new thread on Comics General on whatever you want than to look for an answer. :D
