Maybe we should have a 'practice thread' where we can all try out these ideas without worrying about messing up. :wink:

I reckon this thread will do fine for that, as long as we don't all do it to an unnecessary degree.

Another thing that you can do is use a whole variety of colours that aren't listed. You merely have to know the names of the colours and substitute then for the existing name. For example:

Code: Select all
[color=magenta]Magenta[/color]

Magenta
Code: Select all
[color=chocolate]Chocolate[/color]

Chocolate
Code: Select all
[color=mediumslateblue]Medium Slate Blue[/color]

Medium Slate Blue

Also, Morty - Sorry, I should have made myself a little more clear. You don't need the IMG brackets while actually putting the avatar into your profile. Otherwise, yes, you do need them. And before anyone asks, you need them for images in your signature too.


Ah Ha.....Thanks Quark....Just tried it all out and now understand what you mean....Thanks for putting me right...

I take it if Crysania grabs the picture you made for her she can upload it straight from her hard drive and into her profile and won't need the codes from Image Shack......I tend to do everything the hard way :lol: :lol: :lol:

Still it was good practise doing it all left handed. You'll be surprised what I've learnt to do left handed :oops: but as this is a family forum I'll leave that one and move on......PMSL

You have to be a wizard to be able to see it. :wink:

I can't find it now, but there used to be an online wool shop that sold Octarine coloured wool. :wink:

You'd have to do a bit of trial and error, I think, Morty. Also, the color of a post's background is in intervals of twos so you'd need to know two colors...

Or you could do the colour as 'white' in a 'quote' box. :wink:

The somewhat rather comprehensive list of colours reminds me of a thread that someone puts on when it's someone's birthday but for the life of me I can't remember who puts on a such a MASSIVE post :lol: :lol: :lol:

Morty, is it any coincidence that your avatar is moving his/her left paw only? :D
