In an effort to streamline things as much as I personally can, I'm in the process of condensing things down into one simple Guidelines thread. Please read EVERYTHING here before you post an MOC in this forum. Thanks!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Posting a Brickshelf Link.

When entering brickshelf (or whatever image server you use) , click on the image you wish to make a deep link out of. Then, click it again. And again, if you can. You want to click the image until the URL looks something like:
http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/mygalleyr/myimage.jpg
or any other image acronym (ie .jpg or .gif or .png). Then you Copy and Paste the link from the picture into your post/thread.

Simple Version:
Click on the picture till you can't click it anymore, then Cut and Paste the URL and put it in your thread.

MOC Posting Etiquette.

First thing's first: SHRINK YOUR PICTURES! Smile I can't tell y'all how many times I pretty much give up on viewing a MOC because the pictures are so stinkin' huge! Guys and dolls, there are programs out there that can be used to adjust the size of your pictures. In fact, I bet you have one on your computer, and you don't even realize it! Go that extra mile to figure out what you need to do to get them pics down to a nice and happy size, ie. no larger than 800 pixels. You won't believe how much more attention your MOC'll get when people can actually see it. Wink

And folks, it seems like we've had more trouble lately than usual when it comes to people posting links and images. If you post a URL that happens to be a little on the long side, please be courteous and use BBCode to turn it into a nice and short hyperlink. Example:

Code:
[url=http://www.horriblyincrediblylongURL.com]Click Here To See[/url]


Turns into this:

Click Here To See

It's very simple, and it reduces the amount of horizontal scrolling your fellow members will have to do.

Also, regarding images. Seriously, guys, we're not all using a 21-inch display at 1600x1200 rez (exaggerating, but you get my point). Wink If your image causes the thread it's in to expand off the right side of the screen at all, LINK TO IT instead. Take this thread, for example:

http://www.fbtbforums.net/viewtopic.php?t=10347

That's a bigass picture. Something that should probably be linked to instead. (InsightGoalie, you're not in trouble! Just using you as an example! Smile) If you want to embed a picture in your post like that when presenting a MOC or something, that's perfectly okay. Just make sure you crop and shrink it down to a nice and thread-friendly size. Mike/Count Blockula's MOC presentations are a great example:

http://www.fbtbforums.net/viewtopic.php?p=118773

Folks, it's really not hard. Follow these guidelines, and you'll be helping us out a ton. We'd really appreciate it. Smile

Folks, because some people have a hard time following our requests, we're having to go a little more formal with this.

Please read this post in the CoC forum -
