Holy cow, I need to figure out how to resize the book covers in my sig. The new ones I just added to the old code showed up GINORMOUS.

I hope it didn't scare anyone who saw it before I hurried up and deleted my sig.  :icon_redface:

ETA: Figured it out. I just had to put a lower number as the last element of each URL.
Who would mind seeing man chests? I for one enjoyed the view.  grint  :Tup5a:

You definitely need a qualifier on that statement. I'm a fat middle-aged man, and I'm sure you don't want to see my chest...

Same as before although I usually did more lurking than posting. Haven't had time to do avatar or sig yet but will get to it.

Hello. I don't want to lose touch with what's happening in the indie world but I'll probably mainly lurk for a bit. :blank:

Hi.  :banana: I wasn't all that active on KB. I lurked mostly, just to see what was up in the industry.

So ... the same thing might happen here. Sorry.

Or not.

Greetings. I love to read and really enjoy doing so on my Kindle and Kobo. I'm blessed, or cursed depending on viewpoint, with a virtual blue pencil embedded in my eye. The blessing is it affords me the opportunity to work proofreading and copy editing with a number of authors whose work I greatly enjoy. I'm always LDB or LDB415 depending on forum requirements.

I came from the Author Forums over at Amazon when they started putting restrictions over there. But I was still pretty newbie in 2009. I started self publishing ebooks because of Kindleboards.

Hey! Welcome! And the emojis are growing on me, sort of like a fungus. And this :banana-riding-llama-smiley-em is quite obviously a slug with legs!

Look, we, the in-group know that this is a llama that was caught in an unfortunate tagging incident. Those in the out-group are suffering from some sort of collective dissonance, but her, it's 2018- we're a tolerant in-group.

Yep, there's a private forum that you need a fig leaf or some nonsense. There are posts with instructions to get your fig leaf, and read/post in the erotica forum.

I just have to say that, even though I'm not interested in erotica discussions (no offense intended), I might have considered joining if you got a Fig Newton instead of a fig leaf.

The enticements around here need some work.

Hugs!

I noticed it early but lost my Forum Profile link (as in I don't have one) so have no clue how to change it!!  :icon_think:
