So I don't know if this has been mentioned yet, but this is going on right now and I felt like y'all should know...
Today there is a solar transit of Venus, as it passes in front of the sun.
A live video feed from multiple telescopes and observatories around the world is available here.
This only happens once in a lifetime, and the next time it happens will be in 2117.

Interview with the Art Portal: Defining Art

Questioning artists while looking for the definition of art and why artists do what they do. Just wanted to share with you all.

Read that yesterday, it's a good read.

========================
IMG Tags
You may notice that when new users post stuff in the forum, they occasionally go straight for the IMG tags because they're used to using them in other forums.

This is my query: why doesn't NG support them?

I used to think it was way of avoiding dead links, but with the implementation of Youtube videos embedded into posts, I can't see that this is an issue. Also it would eat less (albeit negligible) server space, and it would be easier to string together multiple images in a single post.

I'd make a thread in WiHT, but I'd rather get some opinions here first before I make a water-tight suggestion.

The embedded youtube video is a new feature which came with the redesign, so I figure they've been kicking around the concept of embedded img tags too.
It would get around the one image per post issue, but maybe they want to prevent people spamming hundreds of images in a single post in the general forum?

I was thinking about the resizing.
at the moment we have some pretty strict limits on the file size and dimensions. Would using tags allow us to get around those constraints causing both larger file size, thus eating up more server space/bandwidth, and bloated threads with images the will shoot far off to the right of a page making scrolling problems?

just my thoughts is all...

You can still place restrictions on dimensions with img tags, I believe.

And in any case, there is no chance that such a thing would eat up server space because they require you to host your picture on another site.

Pretty sure that's the reason right there. While it would make things MUCH easier for us here in the art forum, it could become extremely annoying for folks in the general forum. It's just another way people can spam shit.

That said, I don't know if there might be a way to code it so you can only use so many IMG tags in a post. If that's something detectable, it could just stop you when you hit "post" and say "YOU CAN ONLY USE 3 IMG TAGS" or something like that.

It would be nice if it supported it though, especially when trying to post pictures of work that exists in the real world, which usually benefit from photos from multiple angles (3D work) or from a few detail shots (paintings/drawings/etc).


Look at my art!

Welcome! We love new peoples!!

If you want more views, make yourself a 'Showcase' thread here. You can post WIP's, links to your finished portal stuff or just random doodles that aren't 'portal worthy'. People are more inclined to check out the rest of your work if you give them a visual sample to entice them! ;)

Happy Birthday, Spag!!!! :D

Happy birthday Spags! I remember my first thought about you, it was "That's a weird name..."

In accessory to this post, I just wanted to bring up that I've been doing this thing where I put up old/demo/rare/b-sides from my band up for download for an hour, and one such download is happening right now, don't know who cares but a shot in the dark might hit one zombie maybe

Happy un-un-Birthday, Spaghetti.

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with KingsâEU"nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much:
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty secondsâEUTM worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything thatâEUTMs in it,
AndâEU"which is moreâEU"youâEUTMll be a Man, my son!

It's amazing what people can come up with. The most I've ever seen on a dirty car was "Wash Me" and a frown.
