Here are some commonly asked questions about the forum, if you have any more don't hesitate to ask!
Q: Do we have to scroll all the way back to the top after reading through the threads to be able to go to the next page or even check to see if there is a next page? A: No, as the page scrolls down the page navigation actually scrolls down and stays at the top of the screen
Q: What is Karma under my avatar? A: Karma is like a rating system, if someone has been helpful or done something that deserves a well done you can give them 'Karma' by clicking Exalt.
Q: How do I create a thread? A: Click on the board you want to make a thread in (like Dragon's Den or General Crafting) from the main page. If you look near the top, along the red bar near the right hand side it say's Create Thread.
Q: How do I show a YouTube video? A: There are a number of ways:
1/. Just place the entire url in your message; ". you tube.com/watch?v=wwVyEiI1pms" - (no spaces anywhere) and it should be replaced with the video. 2/. Surround the url or just the last part of the url (after the = sign) with the [you tube]wwVyEiI1pms[/you tube] tag (remove the space between you & tube] 3/. Use the black clapperboard icon (to the left of the little blue man icon).
Q: How do I show images in my posts? A: There is a very small limit on attachments to a post through the forum so it is best to use an online image storing site and link from there. There are a number of sites:

I've been around here for a little while and then I took a couple months off. I come back now to find something I had not noticed before: Altars. What are Altars? Are they new? How do they work? What are they for? What do they represent?
erho: I will once again rise above Lurker status if I ever get back to painting, Real life work transitions... Adulting

sgtslag: Still unpacking after moving in October... Too much stuff, crafting materials are mostly still in boxes. Weekends are busy with life, so little progress made. Getting the urge to push through, though, soon. I have several projects waiting...

sgtslag: Started working on making hills, which match my Tee-Time carpet I use for my "grass mat," on my gaming table, for big battles. Got two long chunks of open-cell foam, from a friend. Used my Proxxon Hot Wire Cutter to make terrain hills out of them.
Jul 26, 2020 20:12:40 GMT
sgtslag: Came up with around 80 hills. Covering them with the same carpet, from scraps. They will match the tabletop, perfectly. Contact Cement, is my friend. Will post on it, when I get the pictures uploaded. Some prototypes done, as proof-of-concept...

randywest: does anyone know more manufacturers for 1/72 fantasy minis besides Dark Alliance, Caesar and Elhiem?
Sept 14, 2020 14:16:19 GMT
sgtslag: 50 Hills completed, 24 left to cover the sides on. Hoping to finish this project within the week. Then I'll post a build description. For war gaming, but it can cross over to RPG sessions... They match the ground 'cloth', perfectly.
Sept 19, 2020 19:03:09 GMT
sgtslag: Sorry, randywest, the listed makers are the only ones I know.

sgtslag: Ran out of Hot Glue, with only five hills left to add a skirt to the sides of. Wal-Mart closes at 8:00 PM, thanks to COVID. GRRRrrr! Another 30 minutes of work, and I would have been done: ~77 hills, modular, perfectly matching my table's ground cloth!

sgtslag: Hoping to acquire a Chop Saw within the next two weeks. Then I will cut up MDF into triangles, to form the skeleton of my d20 fantasy world globe... Posting will follow, with how-to guide. Cheers!

erho: I have a confession: I havnt painted a thing in months because I got a new guitar(#8!) but now that May "Megadeth month" is over I have a repaired airbrush and a early 90's Ral Partha Amethyst dragon on the table... pics to come soon!

margaret: too bad you can't post your music here =). Hadn't seen that dragon - looks like it came out when all my cash was going to raising kids. Looking forward to seeing your paint choices!
