Wanted: Welcome Quips and Fron Page Images

Discussion in 'ARRSE: Site Issues' started by Good CO, Jun 6, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Good CO

    We need input for two parts of the front page; firstly the joke welcome message that appears next to a username when logged - in the format:

    "User, you've got a face like..." (i.e. it will always follow "Username, ").

    These are picked randomly with each page view and there are only 3 at the moment.

    Secondly the main front page image is drawn from this album in the gallery:


    (thanks already to an unknown 1RRF photographer, and Fallschirmjaeger - I hope you don't mind me putting your photos there to start us off).

    To submit a picture for this you will need to be reasonably handy with an image editor or know some who is, as the image should be exactly:

    468 pixels wide x 260 pixels high
    Maximum 30kB (i.e. a medium compressed jpeg)
    It is very important that it is your own or with permission (owner can be credited in the gallery, but not on the front page).
    Good quality.
    Suitable for the front of the site - i.e. not too offensive.
    Have a military connection.
    Not be boring!
  2. Where do the images get sent to? There isn't an option to upload to the front page album (for good reasons I suspect!)

    I'll be happy to photoshop any images people want to post up.

    If you've got a piccy you want sizing, PM me. I'll edit them and PM them to Good CO.
  5. Happy to think up some welcome quips. Do you want 'em posted on here or e-mailed?
  6. I've got some images already trimmed to size. What do I do with them now?

    Sorry about that - I'll open the album up now. There was no good reason why it wasn't available it was just a plain old cock-up.

  10. Well your original link was to the folder: Misc\Front Page

    In the drop down list on the upload page, all I get for the Misc folder is:

    Misc\Body Art
    Misc\Sgt Slingsby

    Have tried a ctrl+F5 to refresh, but same list appears.
