[edit] Can't see template

I'm trying to figure out what your recent edit to The Stick did. — It's dot com

Maybe it was just my computer, but I couldn't see some of the template, the box was covering it. But now that I look at the history, it's fine. Maybe it was at the moment that that I looked at it, or my window way a ceratain way. Funny.--minibaseball.png Bkmlb(talk to me·stuff I did) 00:25, 19 Sep 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Washed out

The image you just uploaded (and some others) look washed out, especially where you can see The Paper. What's the deal with that? — It's dot com P.S. I see that the dumb Cardinals won the division again. ;) — It's dot com 01:36, 21 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Okay, I am not sure. Currently I have a Macintosh Computer running on version 10.2.8. To make images, I do the following:

  1. I go to the .swf version of what ever toon it is.
  2. I make a .pdf of it
  3. I put the .pdf into Apple Works version 6.2.4 and convert it into a .png
  4. I make the image so it is under the 100k standards and upload it.

Sometimes, the image doesn't fit the window, so I'll make it smaller and so it is within the standards. Sometimes in the process of making it fit in the window, it washes it out. When I started making images, (example: most of the ss getting hurt pics) I would use power point and convert it into a .png. When I knew about the standards I used Apple works. When I try and make the image the same size as the .pdf, the file size is huge. Like, 500k! I'm confused. Can you help? P.S. Yeah, what did the rangers do? ;) --minibaseball.png Bkmlb(talk to me·stuff I did) 01:55, 21 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Wow, that's a lot of steps. When I press Command+Shift+4, my cursor turns into a crosshairs. By clicking and dragging across a retangular area, I can capture part of the screen (you can also capture the whole screen by pressing Command+Shift+3). The resulting file is saved on the desktop. The file should already be in PNG format. I captured an image about the size of a H*R screen, and the file size was only 44 KB. Let me know whether this helps. — It's dot com 03:03, 21 Sep 2005 (UTC)

I do the cmd+shift+4 and it comes up as a pdf. I just made a pdf of the index screen it's self and it is 68kb. Then, I converted it into a png and it is 104kb! On one of my friends little newer macs I tryed the cmd+shift+4 and it came up as a png. I am still not sure why all this happens. Is it because of my operating system? I don't know. P.S. I already knew about the cmd+shift+4, but i'm surprised about the file results.--minibaseball.png Bkmlb(talk to me·stuff I did) 03:13, 21 Sep 2005 (UTC)

I have searched my help files with no luck as to why it's saving it as a PDF. Obviously, you have some setting set weird, but I don't know where to tell you to look. As a workaround, you might try using Grab (Applications→Utilities). That should save it as a TIFF. You might also try Picture Viewer to convert it to a PNG. — It's dot com 03:31, 21 Sep 2005 (UTC)

To compare the grab with the pdf. I made a pdf and tiff of about the same thing from the fluffy puff mashmallows commercial. The pdf is 52 kb. The tiff is 104kb. I made pngs from both of them. The one I made with the pdf with out reszing it is 92kb. The one with the tiff is 76kb. That's kinda wierd.--minibaseball.png Bkmlb(talk to me·stuff I did) 22:20, 21 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Indeed. — It's dot com

Thanks for the help! It's almost easier to use the tiff thing.--minibaseball.png Bkmlb(talk to me·stuff I did) 22:37, 21 Sep 2005 (UTC)

[edit] quiz thingy

good job on finding my secret page. It's not very hard. Yeah, I'll pay you when I'm a really famous writer and have like, 2 billion bucks. Nice job on the quiz. Of course, I'm guessing you went to the "i love u" page to try and find the answer to question # 8. --— talk Bubsty edits 02:23, 27 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Umm.. no. I just guessed :-D!!--minibaseball.png Bkmlb(talk to me·stuff I did) 02:25, 27 Sep 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Text Colors. (Thanks but I just needed the wiki code)

I am fully aware of the #(color) but I wasn't sure how to use it to change the color of the text. I went back and figured out how to do it on my own. I realized that I didn't just need <color: #99FF00> but I also needed the, size: 100%. Thanks anyways. =D

But, how do I make a sig that I can use on the wiki. I know how to make it, but I dont know how to put it on the wiki. Do I have to post the sig manually, or is it like the ~~~~?

Arrow'd 02:43, 27 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Well, first, you make User:Arrow'd/sig. Then, make your preferences look exactly like this:

Then, save your preferences, and your done! Then, you can do the four tildes thing and it will appear.--minibaseball.png Bkmlb(talk to me·stuff I did) 02:57, 27 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Thanks! I'll do that tommorow.

Check out my user page and tell me what you think of my animated text.

Hey, those gif are VERY cool!!!--minibaseball.png Bkmlb(talk to me·stuff I did) 03:10, 27 Sep 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Antmated Gifs help

It is very easy to make the text. Even if you make a mistake, you can just edit the url adress to make changes. To rermove those annoying 's, just take away the %27 around the text in the url.

For example, if I make mine to say bannana it will make the text as 'banana'. So just go to the url and take out the bold


so 'banana' will now be banana

You need to save it to your computer and upload it to

Oh! Thanks arrow'd!!--minibaseball.png Bkmlb(talk to me·stuff I did) 00:49, 28 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Thanks!--minibaseball.png Bkmlb(talk to me·stuff I did) 00:30, 28 Sep 2005 (UTC)

By the way, according to Google Maps, Webster Groves is only 1/2 an hour east of Chesterfield (where I lived), so i assume you're closer to STL. Lucky. Peace man. By the wat, the Rams lost to the giants! :'(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(BAWL --daunrealist 20:39, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Yeah, 22-44. Ouch! Final regular season game at busch, looks like win #100!--minibaseball.png Bkmlb(talk to me·stuff I did) 20:45, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Artwork

Wow, bkmlb. Nice uploading. Careful you don't strain yourself. — Lapper (talk) 01:30, 28 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Ahem, what about me? Arrow'd 01:41, 28 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Oh, sorry, Arrow'd. RECOGNIZE'D! Ow, my selfless toil! Good job. — Lapper (talk) 01:44, 28 Sep 2005 (UTC)

[edit] My sig

Please work!

02:07, 28 Sep 2005 (UTC)

How? Add those gifs with all of you a-r-r-o-w-'-d gifs?--minibaseball.png Bkmlb(talk to me·stuff I did) 02:08, 28 Sep 2005 (UTC)

How do I make the picture show up. God, I feel like such a dumb***.

It should look like this arrowd24om.gif

Okay. Let me try and make it appear normally with the link, and then if it doesn't work, I'll upload it onto the wiki.--minibaseball.png Bkmlb(talk to me·stuff I did) 02:13, 28 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Okay, Arrow'd, It worked. Just remember to change the settings (above) :)--minibaseball.png Bkmlb(talk to me·stuff I did) 02:23, 28 Sep 2005 (UTC)

??? Just tell me what to put in the signature bar. God, I hate sounding so stupid.

What do you mean by that? [This?--minibaseball.png Bkmlb(talk to me·stuff I did) 02:32, 28 Sep 2005 (UTC)


God, I am really stupid. XD 02:46, 28 Sep 2005 (UTC)

arrowd24om.gif 02:46, 28 Sep 2005 (UTC)

I want the link to turn out as the image when I use ~~~~

How do I do that?

Make your preferences look like this:

Save your preferences, and your done.--minibaseball.png Bkmlb(talk to me·stuff I did) 02:54, 28 Sep 2005 (UTC)

[] 03:03, 28 Sep 2005 (UTC)

I entered the ~~~~ and thats what I got.

Oh! I think I know...arrowd24om.gif. Oh! You were putting [[User:Arrow'd|{{User:Arrow'd/sig}}]] Instead of this: {{User:Arrow'd/sig}}. Try that. sorry, please just check your preferences one more time :)--minibaseball.png Bkmlb(talk to me·stuff I did) 03:12, 28 Sep 2005 (UTC)


Nope, I'm pretty sure I've got it right. I wonder why it won't work.

arrowd24om.gif 23:57, 28 Sep 2005 (UTC)

God, I am so stupid, I forgot to check the raw sig box. Now, where would I go to change my sig in the future?

You would go to User:Arrow'd/sig.--minibaseball.png Bkmlb(talk to me·stuff I did) 19:40, 30 Sep 2005 (UTC)
