it wouldnt cost you much to setup your own board, but its the "why wasnt i listed" questions that take the time...

Humbolt
01-06-2006, 02:23 AM

Thats great facialfreak!

But unfortunatly....well you know

Humbolt
01-06-2006, 02:24 AM
Thank you CZ..you should see me in them chaps
JUST the chaps....

oh..ok
and the hat and boots too

Humbolt
01-06-2006, 02:31 AM
Ok..Mr Blue
One LAST mod and i think its perfect for the challenge
Bring down the top some and the bottom up some
So that there is only a small gap between the letters and outer frame

Humbolt
01-06-2006, 02:32 AM
I have decided that i need TWO new buttons
If i use them...you will get a month in the top 10

facialfreak
01-06-2006, 04:40 AM
ok ... after a bit of liquid creativity ... http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v298/dayjavooodew/smileys/food/10_7_5.gif

Cat
01-06-2006, 04:52 PM

Cat
01-06-2006, 05:02 PM
i forgot to put a border on it..give me a few mins to fix it.. :rolleyes:

Cat
01-06-2006, 05:29 PM
okay..one with and one without border..i think the reason i cant upload my images into here has someting to do with programing my https access or something...sowwy.. mybutton (http://www.amateurthumbpost.com/lotrecips.htm)

Czarina
01-06-2006, 05:59 PM

Humbolt
01-06-2006, 07:57 PM

01-06-2006, 08:06 PM

facialfreak
01-06-2006, 09:25 PM
ok ... here's mine sans les images ... ;)

Humbolt
01-07-2006, 10:48 AM
Ok Folkes...

You might be gettin mad at me now
But it has come to my attention that the buttons are abit too large..

So this is what i am proposing

Dont change the size of what you have already submitted...but if you win..well have to remake the button in a couple smaller sizes like
150x100
125x80

If you have not submitted a button yet..please make them in
one of these two sizes

thanks
Humbolt

Czarina
01-07-2006, 01:11 PM
OK, they say "& Movies" now... just refresh this page :)

Humbolt
01-07-2006, 01:30 PM
OK, they say "& Movies" now... just refresh this page :)

Got it...thank you Czarina!

Humbolt
01-07-2006, 01:34 PM
Once the button contest is completed..
I will be holding more contests
One for the top logo for library of thumbs

and Im going to need new grahics for 3 other sites once
the Library is off and running on its own

happyteens.com
horny-devil.net
moviemadness.net
all going to need new stuff

But to keep from imposing on shemp...I will hold them elsewhere..

Mr. Stiff
01-08-2006, 03:33 AM

Here are the revisions you requested on my entry Humbolt

facialfreak
01-08-2006, 08:07 PM
Here's another one from me.. This time with the blind link text added ;)

http://www.mrstiff.com/images/lot2.gif

Clean and simple .... I like it

But you're not quite within the minimum width and height Humbolt asked for.

facialfreak
01-08-2006, 08:18 PM
I thought the blue I used was somehow off after seeing all the other entrants, but checked it and it is in fact dead on (#B3E7FF).

I am just curious why some of you used a similar shade of blue that is not from the site colors? LOL

Mr. Goat
01-08-2006, 10:40 PM
nice looking buttons thus far :) wish I could design!

Humbolt
01-08-2006, 11:56 PM
Actually..Not sure which page you got that color from
But I beleive cats is closer color to my main page
http://www.libraryofthumbs.com/main.html
http://www.libraryofthumbs.com/buttoncontest/
Or maybe im getting old and not seein too good these days

But both look excellent...gonna be tough to chose from all these

Humbolt
01-09-2006, 10:45 AM
Ummm ... that would be www.libraryofthumbs.com

{BODY TEXT="#000000" BGCOLOR="#B7E8FF" LINK="#000099" VLINK="#000099" ALINK="#FF0000"}

next page is same color too :)


Ok..I understand whats happening now
The site has been going thru an extensive overhaul..
I just have not gotten to the index page yet...its holding the older colors
Please see the colors on the main links page

Humbolt
01-09-2006, 10:55 AM
Looks great Porn Cargo!
Its going to be next to impossible to pick only 2 winners

Mr. Stiff
01-10-2006, 10:00 AM
Okay, here are some more. I'll stop now ;)

What the hell have i gotten myself into here
There is no way i am going to be able to pick two buttons from all these
I like so many of them

Humbolt
01-10-2006, 12:55 PM
ok....
I this is the deal
There will be TWO top 10 winners
Everyone else who participates get a garaunteed daily listing...however i cannot garauntee where on the list it will pop up...(im not that savvy with the new script yet.
I will have you simply send me a list of 30 gallerys..they must ALL be same category.

This is provided you allow me to keep the buttons you created
and use them as I see fit.

Pity, i'm not a designer. But from gallery poster's point of view - guys, why the hell you make a reciprocal button sized bigger than 20Kb??? Nobody will use them..

Hi..me again..the last two i made were optimised under 15k..but i will optimize the first two...cause they are well over 20k....sorry about that..:-P

Cat
01-12-2006, 01:10 PM
Unfortunately I was unable to optimize the blue ones to under 20k so what i did is removed some of the frames...it comes in at 18k.. i put the new version at the top of the page..the other two are well under 20k.. :-P

I know which one my favorite is. :)

max40
01-12-2006, 08:36 PM
OK, here is my attempt: http://www.tgpstats.com/lotm.gif
I try smaller size (125x80) as it's easier to make nice recip table with small-sized buttons than with huge ones (at least from gallery builder point of view). Still hope my animation has "something eyecatching" :)

Humbolt
01-13-2006, 02:01 PM
