Rebooting Comixpedia Part 2: Groups and Avatars
Submitted by Xaviar Xerexes on October 6, 2005 - 13:58
Groups are cool. Local groups where you can get together to talk in person are great. Groups online where you can find more targeted shared interests are great. There's a much easier way to set up, join and use groups on the forthcoming, new Comixpedia site.
A couple of requests: If you have a local group tell me about it so I can set it up for you on the new site. If you have a request for a shared interest group post it here (other ideas for groups are welcome to).
Avatars are also cool (I'd say "rad" but I think 80's nostalgia is already come and gone). You can use off-site avatars on the new forums but here's another suggestion - if you want to provide an avatar for anyone on the site to use - post it here and I'll grab it and load it. You need to have the ability to give me a license to use on the site (i.e., it's got to be an image you have the copyright for), it should be 100 x 100 or smaller and keep the file size small. I think this could be pretty
radcool if the forums and posts are filled with webcomic character avatars.
Also, I'm still going to nag folks for feedback on the forums until I get some.
