Posting/linking problems

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

I was just wondering if anyone has come across the following issues that I am having when posting & whether anyone can help me please (or let me know if I am simply doing it wrong!).

 

 

1. Using the quote "button" to reply to a specific post and thus showing the box of text from the original post in my reply

 

When I try this, my "quote" post just appears as a regular reply post with no original posters text shown. Any thoughts?

 

 

2. I would like to add myself to the index of Reaper painted figures post & insert links of my pics to it.

 

Whilst creating a post, I have tried both clicking the link button to add a direct link or typing some appropriate text, selecting it then clicking the link button. The "link" pop up window appears & I copy the URL address into the appropriate text box & click ok but the pop up just stays there forever (the close pop up "x" does not exit the window but you can still type in the text boxes). Eventually, I have to close the browser window to exit the post.

I suspect that I am doing something wrong here, can anyone enlighten me please?

 

Also, I want to add links to my signature (future WIP's for example) but I have the same problem here too.

 

 

I'd much appreciate it if anyone can help or maybe give me some suggestions please.

 

Many thanks!

Have you tried a different browser?  Last I heard, the forum software had problems with some software like IE.  Firefox always works well for me, and I'm sure many others do as well.

I've heard that IE has those issues around here as well.

Ok, I'm using Firefox now and..... success! Issue 1 solved as shown by this reply to Serenity via the "quote" button.

Just need to do some posts with links in to check issue 2 using Firefox, will post back here with my findings soon.

 

Many thanks for all of your input. ::):

I'm using Safari on my Mac and don't generally see these problems, but what I am seeing is that when I use the "Quote" button and the then add my note under the quoted message and try to post the message I get a "Post is empty" error.

 

Anyone else see this?

No experience with Safari, but IE is the devils browser and only good for downloading one of the other ones. 

 

Is Opera still around?

      I'm not sold on the gameplay, but the tech and potential is interesting.

      Custom Legend of Zelda, Breath of the Wild inspired Paint scheme on elf warrior. The model is a 3D printed model and was brought to me by a customer She requested a Legend of Zelda inspired paint scheme based on a photo she provided of her character from the game. I really enjoyed doing this and translating the original art on to the model and I cant wait for a customer to bring me another challenge like this again. As allways if you liked this I post more pictures like this on my FB Page. Facebook.com/TabletopGlory

      While shopping in my local Dollar Tree store this week, I noticed these spirograph-like party favors that had some unusual gears in them.  I thought I'd do a quick post here just to give folks a heads-up.
            The gears come in two sizes and you get four in each pack.  They looked very naturalistic to me, like something an Elf might carve or create.  I'm not sure what I will use these for, but thought they'd be a good thing to have tucked away for just the right project.  I think they'd look really cool painted up like wood. I know some of you could probably make use of them for bases, or part of a  scenic base.
           As I look at them, I also realize they might also serve as machinery for some sort of alien or other weird tech.

      These are old Ral Partha sculpts from Iron Wind Metals. They are assorted deckers and /or riggers from the Shadowrun game, i.e. people Of The Future who use computers in a virtual matrix and puppet combat drones in the physical world.

      It occurs to me that decker miniatures are not much called for, since all of their relevant gameplay is in online virtual personas which don't tend to look like people and in an environment where mapping out positions is impossible, so tabletop gameplay with minis is ... a little diffuse, at best.

      So I wonder how much demand there actually was for figures of the "meat space" physical reality of the deckers, the people who (this is so '90s a vision of the future) carried big physical keyboards in their hands and had to be physically wired into the computer network, including physical implanted wire plugs in their skulls!
       
      I love these figures for their outdated vision of future tech. Also they are lovely little sculpts.
       
      Anyhow, I have here the elf man from the set 20-572: Elven Deckers - Male & Female; the woman (who turned out to be an elf) from set 20-524: Riggers & Drones (5); the human woman decker from the set 20-501: Deckers (3);and the orc man decker from the set 20-595: Assets Inc. I: Shadowrunners.

      At the moment I've primed them with Titanium White and washed them with Burnt Umber. The hair is only blocked in so I can do the faces; it will be elaborated later.

      I am still working on the faces, although I like this first one:


      Elves are supposed to be a bit full of themselves, so I tried for a haughty look.


      Speaking of an obsolete vision of the future, this one is wearing cut-off jeans.


      I'm dissatisfied with this one's face. Fortunately in-game there are prosthetic "Chibi eyes", so I can paint them over weird and claim that's what they are.


      This guy is full of personality, although you can really see how bizarrely retro the idea of the tech is. Yep, he has to lug that thing around wherever he goes because there's no way a portable computing and communication device could be made, I dunno, pocket sized.




      As usual, this thread may be sporadic as my painting time is almost random between art projects.

      I'm painting a pack donkey to go along with Hans now. The sexiest merchant of the wasteland.
