Hi, everyone. We just upgraded our site to Drupal 6, so please let me know if you notice anything odd.

There has also been talk again about revamping the design of our site. I'd love to hear from anyone out there who's familiar with Drupal themes. Apparently this new version has made it very easy to do. It'd be nice to get a great professional design like we had on the old site. Any artists or graphic designers out there? I'm pretty sure we could rustle up a free copy of Vintage Games for you if we accepted your design!

I never had trouble with the old img assist once I got the hang of its oddities.

That way you'll always have your images there without them disappearing on you.

Even the old IMG ASSIST seems to work perfectly as long as you use HTML mode. You should probably use it so we all have access to your images from the image library. After all, your icons get used the most, though you haven't added to them in some time (hint, hint). :-)

Don't worry I've got some ideas for new icons! They'll remain mostly in 32x32 but we need new systems like the Wii, the PS3, Iphone, Ipad. All those systems can be rendered in lovely 32x32 squares! LOL

Yes, I wish those devs would

Yes, I wish those devs would get more serious about image and img_assist modules. I love having the online album to choose from, but especially like the captioning. You'd think almost every blog would want to have that capability, so I'm shocked it's not just part of the Drupal core.

It works great too, thanks. For those who want this feature on all the time (like me), simply go into your account settings and click on the checkbox.

We're well on our way to AA 3.0 (aka, Neo v2)!
