Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.
Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.
Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?
I spent a long time wrestling with the CSS and not getting it to work out the way I wanted (most of the form is generated server-side and it keeps spitting out malformed tags and it is some bullshit let me tell you), so I just did my best with a little note about needing to press "Confirm" and changing the labels on the buttons so they're more clear. Hopefully that'll help people out a bit.Oh, yeah, I missed the "preview" and assumed that was the final version, so I copied the image location of the preview and posted that! I didn't get to the final page with the code. Changing the first one to "begin" or moving the "create/preview" to the top might help. Or where it says "preview" under the preview image, it could say something like "click below to finalize?"
And thank you for trying it! Yeah, the URL you used is the one that actually makes the images... all the main script really does is call that whenever your word count changes so you don't have to do it by hand.Yeah, it looks like i got it directly from the preview as well. The URL was super specific, so i was wondering, haha... Thanks for clearing it up!
Ha, that is great!So, I'm not participating this year (November is usually the worst possible month for me to delve into things like this), but, here's some useful advice for those of you who are in.
This is pretty much my favorite thing. I especially like "Your blood is special." "Does that mean my parents are special too?" "No."(Are you familiar with the Dystopian YA Novel twitter?)
That's the way to do it! You're really not all that far behind, and if you keep plugging away, you can totally catch up and reach 50k. At the very least, you'll have plenty of progress at the end of the month.Sandstone-Shadow said:But maybe if I ignore that and just write when I have time, I'll get over that. I'll at least have something if I keep going!
And maybe if I keep going, I'll eventually catch up, or get to a point when I can just power through to catch up.
Haha, I like the character names! Also this is really suspenseful! I like how you've added tension to the choosing of a Pokémon - I'm curious to know what happens.Negrek said:Negrek's excerpt
