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 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.

This may be just me, but does anyone else draw more at night then during the day?

I remember reading somewhere that people are more creative during the night verses the day, and I noticed that I draw a hell of a lot less during the summer. I wonder if it could be because the sun is up for longer?

Or that I'm just really lazy when I have any free time.

I draw almost exclusively at night and pretty much always have. Now its because I work during the day, before was because I was in class during the day. On days off I prefer to get all the errands and socializing bits done during the day.

I do feel more creative at night but I would say that most of the drawing at night comes more from me just being busy all the time during daylight hours.

Just noticed an Enemy Creation contest in General, where people come up with creature concepts for an RPG.
Might be a fun forum activity to get stuck into.

Thanks man, love you too.

So hey, would the fine people of these forums prefer Creature of the Week or Character of the week contests? I'll probably do ChOW anyway, but it's good to give your minions an illusion of choice.

Well, ashman was running the CHOW's, so you might need to contact him to see if he's okay with you taking over it.
I think COW would be nice, because there's a bit more freedom allowed, and we haven't had one in a long time.

Like jonny I'd prefer cow, but that's mostly because back when I first came here, the cows (at the time hosted by you) were one of the things that really got me hooked to the art forum.
I'd like an EOW too; but it might be difficult to get many entries for that.
