    Labor Day Weekend PLAY-A-THON!!

    Welcome to the Labor Day 2012 Weekend PLAY-A-THON!
    Really, it's just a art party thread.

    STARTING: Friday, August 31, 2012 - whenever you feel like begining!
    JoyFlower, that's me, will be your hostess on the west coast. I'll be online after 5 p.m. my time...when my work week is through. Just Ducky will be pitching in from the east coast to help keep the thread rollin' along.

    ENDING: Monday, September 3, 2012 - when you're too sleepy to stay awake any longer! (Or when you're forced to sleep because of a need to make it to work on Tuesday. )

    We're keeping it casual this time around, so feel free to chat it up in the thread! Post pictures of whatever you're working on, and trade at will. **Please arrange your trades through PMs with other players.**

    The only strict rule is HAVE FUN!!

    Here's A How-To on Posting Pictures... shamelessly stolen from a previous a-thon thread.

    From your atcsforall.com gallery:
    It’s easiest to have two windows open. I can create another "tab" and get to my gallery in one and be in my post reply box in the other.
    Internet Explorer
    1 Go to the main page of your gallery & right click on the picture you wish to post - this brings up a menu which has “properties” at the bottom.
    2) Right click on “properties”, and it will show you "Address (URL)"Highlight the address/url and copy (Ctrl C).
    Then follow steps 3 - 5 below
    Note: Your picture will come up as large. Most folks use small or medium in the thread.

    Mozella Firefox and Mac Safari (most versions)
    1) Go to the main page of your gallery & right click on the picture you wish to post - this brings up a menu that includes “Copy Image Location” (which is about 2/3 down the list for me)
    2) Click on the “Copy Image Location”
    Then follow steps 3 - 5

    3) Go to your post in the thread and click on the "insert image" button (looks like a postcard)
    4) Paste the address (right click, click paste or Ctrl P) into the window that pops up and hit OK - that puts the code into your post for your picture to show up; (you paste the address from the properties box over the http thingy that shows when you open the "insert image" box)
    5) Remember that images from the gallery are small, medium or large. Most folks use small or medium in the thread. Find the word small, medium or large (or letters s m l) in the address and change it to size you want.

    [IMG]http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/400/small/1_Maygar_Posta-traded.jpg [/IMG

    (leaving the last bracket off the above so you can see how the address will look)

    From your computer:

    1. Click POST REPLY at the bottom of the messages screen. Above the message box, click the paperclip next to the smiley face. Then upload as usual. This will upload your picture as a thumbnail.
    2. If you go into the Quick Reply box at the bottom of the messages screen, click GO ADVANCED and you will get the paperclip above the message box.


    *********
    If you have any questions, just post them in the thread and someone will answer/help!

    Oh, yes, Evelyn! DO come play!

    Quick eye for the tags! I think tea qualifies as an art supply. As do chocolate, and wine. Or whatever your personal vice may be.

    I woke up feeling lousy today, so I'm taking it easy, so I can work on swaps and play this weekend. I think I need more chocolate, though.
