Winter Formal: February 9th, 2019
« on: January 10, 2019, 06:13:05 AM »

Winter Formal 2019
Saturday, February 9th, 2019
4pm - 8pm Eastern • 1pm - 4pm Pacific

Pocket D inside the Ski Chalet

The Costume Contests will be as follows:
  • The Masquerade! Show up as your fanciest ballroom or formal toon!  Come as a Lady, Countess, or Baroness, or as a Gentlemen, Leftenant, or Duke... but the mask must be on!
  • The Rogue's Gallery! Where some see a formal function, others see opportunity.  Bring in your best Highwayman or Debutante Grifter to clean the borgeouisie's pockets!

We will also offer a Costume Race, and CrashPositron will be hosting their latest game with the help of our newest HERC Recruit, RipleyNevermore!

Did the definition of HERC change when I wasn't paying attention?  ???

I tried to remember to take pictures. Sometimes I actually did.  :)

First, the DJ show, which went on even when stuff was happening elsewhere.  :)

That DJ was lousy.  I think I could do a better job than he did. :P

*Chuckle* I thought he was good. *smile*

I have more pictures, but suddenly "Add image to post" isn't producing the word string, and no pictures show if I hit post anyway. Any suggestions besides try again later? *smile*

If you use ad blocking, make sure "mod.postimage.org" is allowed through.  (I had the same issue months back... :D)

I don't know where to look that up, or where to make the alterations, let alone what alterations to make. *puzzled look*

I just posted all my pictures on the Discord HERC Channel. I'm hoping someone can help me get them over here one way or another. :)

It depends on the method you use to block ads.  I use Privacy Badger, who offers switches to turn certain outside sources on or off:



It might be an add-on service, a setting in your own web browser, or if you're at work/school, or other 'managed' network it could be the software filter blocking it. 

Another way I get around it is not use PostImage.org.  It's not easier, and requires to know how HTML works, but it's consistent.  All the CC Pics, I host on Flickr, then copy the embed link and paste in a forum post.  I remove everything surrounding the image link, and just use the "src" in the image tag:

Code: [Select]
<a data-flickr-embed="true"  href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/142485775@N05/47336177972/" title="WINNER 2-21-2019 @Doctor Mobius">
<img src="https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4850/47336177972_32f274c053_o.png" width="610" height="410" alt="WINNER 2-21-2019 @Doctor Mobius">
</a><script async src="//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

The actual picture is "https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4850/47336177972_32f274c053_o.png" in the example above.  So wrap that address in img tags...

Code: [Select]
[img]https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4850/47336177972_32f274c053_o.png[/img]
And you get this...
