Huh, I just checked, looks like you're right. I can't figure out how to give people at the "Contributor" rank upload rights yet. In the meantime, until I do, maybe you can just add a note to the bottom of your entries with a link to whichever image you think would fit, and I'll drop it in.

Also, if I set you up with access to publish straight to the newsfeed without an editor's help, you should probably be using buttons like "preview" and "save draft" instead of publishing half-finished stuff straight to the top of the frontpage.

Yeah, for some reason my browser effed up , I did keep using save draft and preview to check that post throughout the entire bloody process.

Safari, Rockmelt and firefox all choked and died while I tried making that post - and for some reason I cannot set up thumbnails (I was reading that post WHEN I made my post to the newsfeed and was busy swearing my head off) and eventually figured that there was something I either couldn't see on my end, or something in wordpress itself that that would make my thumbnail like the other posts.

Then the website died so I couldn't actually check, and then small person happened.

Sorry abou that Mike, I'll go back to my corner now.

Well I've gone in and moved stuff around, you should be able to take a look at how it all fits together now (I think) - the thumbnail stuff is all in the right column, but you have to scroll down to see it I think.

Yeah, I had scrolled down and used the "Insert thumbnail" function to add the bastard oversized image - again, no idea why it did what the fuck it did, it simply took forever to do anything, wouldn't show me previews when I wanted it too - and then gave up and died on my end when I made the post.

So yeah . . . I'm just gonna leave that alone, for a while.

I started pinning stuff from the forum to a BrikWars Pinterest board a few months ago, and today I had the bright idea to use it for the newsfeed:

http://brikwars.com/category/forum-highlights/

I also noticed Colette had put a newsfeed post up for approval last week and I didn't spot it until now. So that's up too.

I want that that opens whole new doors for trolling, :shock: I want to see how long it takes before I can make scythe start banging his head on a wall :mrgreen:
