Upgraded forum signature 'awards' (those mug things) have now been uploaded too for those who want to add a 2015 to their collection.

Right, that's enough of this nonsense. I'm going to go to bed. I look forward to (a) reading the books at a more leisurely pace, and (b) hearing what you thought of the event and the book over the next few days. Thanks everyone for taking part so enthusiastically this year!

Comments about the event in this thread please. I'd appreciate if you could put any comments about the book itself in the Marshal Law thread.

Where does one find the signature awards?

Good night all and good show! Thank you all for setting up/participating in this event. It was crazy, but productive.

Lesbian subtext and spaceship. Okay, that happened.

And just for one rollicking minute I thought our story was going this a-way: I Was Kidnapped By Lesbian Space Pirates.

As the Fates would have it, we had the very same chapter. So, your humility has been well and truly outed. :wink:

The links / method is the same as before (for those who don't have an award signature currently, there's a FAQ on how). Just add the -5 to the file name in the link!

Thanks for the kind words, folks!

Had you intended to include the link to the faq? Last year it was sent to me. I didn't have a clue then nor yet how to locate the mug thingies.

Did a quick scan of the faq thread itself, and didn't find one regarding signature thingies.

Faq de Niad is in the NIAD forum area -- where you are now but one level up from here. There on the infinitely long list of frequently asked questions, you will see this one:

Can I get one of those sweeeet forum badges?

And our pigfodder is about to learn the true meaning of combinatorial explosion. For each year, without the benefit of server side graphics generation software, he is supplying (2 to the nth power) banner graphics, where n = the number of niads. Still at a mere 32 banners this year, hehhehheh.

Lil - this is the code I used for my graphic. Since I participated in 2014 and 2015, I specified "4-5" just before the ".png". Someone whose first NiaD is 2015 will adjust the code to just "5". Anyway, here's mine:

Code: Select all

[url=http://novelinaday.com][img]http://www.pigfender.com/NiaD_Badge/4-5.png[/img][/url]


All you have to do is past the code into the Signature. Go to the User Control Panel, select the Profile tab, select the Signature tab, and paste it in. Then hit submit.

Try it again!
