Wow, this is so cool.  I hope something does come about, it would really be a cool niche for this site I think.   :)

And I appreciate the kind words about my photonovels, but God knows I have a lot of room for improvement.   ::)

 :P

Couple days late, but better late than never, eh?!  :P  How'd that be?  Check it out and LMK if there's anything you'd like me to change (title, text, whatever)...

I don't know if it's possible for you (Justin) to pick out a good representative picture from the series, and create a thumbnail of it, that I could add above the text of my news report...?  It'd have to be similarly sized to the other thumbnails we have on the main page here, so that might be a little too small to actually see what's happening in your shot.  I dunno.  LMK what you think.

Very Cool! :) Thanks a lot Matt! If you make a thumbnail, it could always be a cropped and resized image so you can see some of what is going on, and still keep it around the size you are looking for.

Yet another reason that JD is the place to be. :)

Wow, this is so nice of you guys to do this.  I can't believe my name is on the front page; it's a really cool feeling.  I appreciate it.  I'll make a couple thumbnails -





How are these?  Are they ok?

Also, I thought that maybe sometime next week you'd like to show a couple of quick previes for #12 - Terror Reborn.  Here's a couple of previews of that story if you'd like to show them.  That story should be finished and up in a week or so.





Again, thanks JediMAC and to the staff here.  Definitely the coolest place around!

 :P

Hi Justin,

As a rule of "thumb" (ha!), we like to keep the front page images a bit smaller than those...



about 133x100 is right for the front page.

I'll see about having Matt add the image to his newspost...

Updated!  Thanks Jeff, and thanks CHEWIE.

We'll have to talk about whether we're going to get into previews too, so I'll keep you posted on that guys...

Keep up the kickass customizing everyone!  8)

Thanks guys.  You're the best.  And the new thumbnail is now up there; very nice!

I'll hopefully have the next photonovel finished up this week!   :)

I'll see about getting this one up sometime this weekend.  You have any prospective thumbnails you'd like us to use, Justin?

BTW, when's the Droid Monthly Challenge officially ending?  I wanted to get that a mention as well, so LMK.  Thanks!

Thanks JediMac - here might be one that you could use.  I don't think I can get a thumbnail any smaller than this with my program -



The DROIDS Monthly Customizing Challenge ends at the end of August.   :)

Yep!  I meant to mention it in here last night after I finally posted it, but it slipped my mind.  But yeah, we're back in business!

Still planning to pimp the monthly customizing challenge too.  When is this month's one ending?  Droids, right?
