Sounds like another great fun.

I'll think about it, but now I'm excited about the 2nd contest. Anyway, there's plenty of time since today is just the 15th.

Ok this is something I have always wanted to learn, I will try this can be my first effort so here's hoping I can figure out some of that animation. Either way count me in and we will see.

Red face Horrible Confession

OK, before anyone faints from shock because I'm not participating in a contest, or blames the squirrels (long story, see my blog), I have a shameful confession.... I don't have the slightest idea how to make a blinkie. Yes, I'm going to school for computer design. I have no idea how I got through 3 semesters with a 4.0 and yet we never covered this, I hang my head in shame, but I CAN'T EVEN FIGURE OUT HOW TO ATTACH THE @#$%^&#@ THINGS TO MY SIGNATURE. I CT for mITSYBELLE and she keeps sending me blinkies proclaiming my allegance which I would love to use but I've been TOO EMBARRASED to admit I don't know how to use them.

(PS: here's the address to my blog, in case you just have to know about the squirrel thing... there's freebies there to reward you for the trouble. )

Oh, Tammara! It's really not that hard! Jeanette has even supplied a very basic beginner's blinkie tutorial that is super easy to follow!

I had no clue how to make blinkies until the contest last year! That's when I went in search of some tutorials and discovered that they really are SUPER EASY... they're just time consuming, especially if you want lots of animation!

C'mon... give it a try! You'll learn how to make them, then you won't ever have to confess again! LOL!
------------------------------------------------------------------------
As far as blinkies in your siggy, that's pretty easy too! You just need someone to give you the instruction's is all!

First, I would start with signing up for a Photobucket Account (it's free!). Once you have the account set up, upload your blinkies to Photobucket & it will supply you with an [IMG] code.

Go to USERCP here in the forum, look at the list on the left side and find "Edit Signature" under the Settings & Options section.

Once under Edit Signature you should see a box just like when posting a comment here in the forum.

Copy the [IMG] code from Photobucket & paste into the box! Now, click on Preview Signature at the bottom and see if your image has appeared (box at top of page)

You can add text, links and any other images you want! Once you are done and you like the way it looks, click Save Signature and that's it! You now have your "underwear" on and you won't be running around naked anymore! :p

Default ...and by the way...

PS: The "underwear" thing is HILARIOUS. If I could make blinkies, the first thing I would do is make a black lace thong WITH garter straps AND a french lace-up bustier for my "secret" identity.
