    Hmm, I might try my hand at this. :p

    One question - what exactly is the reply image? I don't think I've noticed it before...

    Theoretically you are supposed to see it on the "reply" page of a thread (the page with the box where you type your post), but for some reason, it does not always show up. If anyone spots it somewhere on some board, please post a link. Thanks. :D

    Ah. Is it required for a banner submission? I'd rather not make an image that I have no clue where it is placed. ;)

    To answer a question that's sure to come up, you can have PT characters and villains, and OT heroes, and anything else you want. But make the focus the OT villains and their hardware. :)

    Okay, one last question on that reply image, and then I swear I'll be good and go make a banner:

    When it shows up, does it take the place of the ad?

    Or does it have it's own special place? If so, where?


    Er, that was three questions. Bad ATS. :p

    The "reply graphic" is theoretically supposed to show up on the page where you enter in your post. It appears at the top of the page, usually in lieu of the ad (I think). Usually, it is similar in style to the main banner. Hope that helps.

    yes, it takes the place of both the ad and the ad-holders. strange, i thought i remembered it coming up on the "post reply" screen. but as i type this, it's not there....

    edit: on the edit screen it's there.

    The reply image also appears while adjusting options and a few other screens, so it isn't strictly a reply image.

    <h1>Since this is the main banner being made, please don't put anything like "Post Reply" on the image that we call the reply image. Otherwise, you'll see it in places other than when you post replies. </h1>

    Yes, I'm being anal. It runs in my family. :p

    Just you wait. Someone is going to try to sneak in a "post reply" onto the reply image. I just know it. [face_plain] :p

    Everyone needs to put "Post Reply" in the Post Reply image somewhere. I don't care where but it's got to be there hidden, but visible if you know where to look.

    It just must be. Especially after Gandy went crazy with his post.
