Insect-Lovers Reports / News

:star: :star: :star: Sorry for the month hiatus. We say sorry for any inconvenience, but we were both very busy with some real life issues that had to be resolved first.
Now the good news... None of your submissions have gone lost, and are all added now to the correct month folders. All is running smooth again and we promise to keep it that way again from now.
Sorry again, and thanks for your patience :hug: :hug: :hug:

:star: :star: :star: Submissions for the "2010 - December" gallery folder can be sent now!!

REMEMBER:

:bulletgreen: First make sure you're a MEMBER of the group. If not, then just click the "Join our Group" button on top, and you'll be automatically accepted.
:bulletgreen: Then go the the correct month gallery folder (easiest via the box at the left or go to the Gallery on top first), click the "+" button top right, choose your deviation to submit, and that's it.

A Word From the Admin

Well... First I want to mention my friend Leandro leocbrito who founded this as an old-style club. He got busy with uni and work, so he had to let it go, and asked me to take it over.
So I'll try to be your "father" here. And there's a lovely "mother" too for you, Roji-Hachi (Rosanna)! So it will be a "perfect family".
Go give her a big :kiss: & :hug:
I'm not a skilled Phd. Philosopher, but call me a "life philosopher". In love with nature, all aspects, and always thinking about ways to show its beauty, and so hopefully aware some more people about what our world today is destroying, and keeping from our children and next generations to witness.
One of these are INSECTS/INVERTEBRATES. I'm from Antwerp, Belgium, the (industrial) north of the country, so we don't have them much here. But with every chance I get, I go hiking. Mostly in France & Italy. Hiking for myself, sometimes organizing there walks in the mountains with others, encouraging people to photograph them, so they will always keep in memory these fantastic places, and share them with others.
For the club... I want this to be a cozy place first, friends, sharing art, but also tips/tricks, travel plans, whatever. As long as it's supporting each other.
I'm a quite nice old bummer skinny hairy hippie-punk teddybear gorilla most of time, and I hate rules and laws. I'm not a police officer. I'll try to be a guide. Just try to follow some basic rules here to make things run smooth. That's all. Mistakes are no crimes as some think. And you can always ask for help regarding anything. Together we will always find a way to make this club a nice place for everyone. Regardless background, race, colour of your eyes, size of your right big toe, religion, politics,... Everyone is welcome here as long as you show respect for all others too! So, let that be my first and maybe only rule/law...
Some more activities are setup now (contests,...) and more will come. Suggestions are always most welcome!

So... that's it for now. Spread the word about this wonderful club, and have all a great second, minute, hour, day, week, month, year, life!

HAVE FUN!

Wim Wimley

I pimped you [link] but I confess I don't know where to find your icon's code. It's somewhere obvious, isn't it? :)
Reply
:iconwimley:
Wimley Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2010
Thanks very much!! You can easily add the icon by adding the code : iconinsect-lovers-club : (without the spaces) instead of the text. It's automatically a link too :)

Have a nice April Fools' Day! :D

Thank you for the help! I'm afraid the badge replacement will have to wait until tomorrow, though, as when I tried to incorporate it into my journal just now, another *%&%(%(% Twilight badge appeared in its place. That doesn't help you or the group, and it annoys me with an irrational fervor. I detest Twilight!!!!!

For the header of journals try changing the CSS for:
.boxtop journaltop h2 a
Reply
:iconwimley:
Wimley Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2010
There's no thing like that... only what i pasted below... there I can change the font-size etc... but not the color.

Thanks for your help!! :hug:

.journaltop h2 {
position:relative;
top:10px;
left:0px;
font-family:'Trebuchet MS', Helvetica, sans-serif;
color:#DDDDDD;
font-size:16pt;
font-weight:lighter;
letter-spacing:2px;
text-align:left;
padding-left:10px;
padding-bottom:10px;
padding-top:0px;
}

You should be able to add it in. Link colors and underline need to be specified for the actual link itself. Try adding this:

.journaltop h2 a {
color:#DDDDDD;
text-decoration:none;
}

Thanks Melissa!! Works perfect now indeed :hug:
I'm a web developer myself too, but more about the SQL Server/ASP/VBscript part of the job... CSS is not really my "thing" :)

No problem! I'm a front-end developer, so CSS is my thing :)

The stamp is 99x56px, so it would be not accepted :(

I don't know who made the stamp, it's from before I was an admin here... So I would have to resize it myself in Photoshop and upload under my name... Better to let some members make a new one :)

:D That's not what I meant. :laughing: Leave the stamp as is. Just use it to create new avatar on your computer - to upload avatar you have to have the file on your hard drive. It doesn't work any other way. ;)
