    I just signed up for a tumblr acct in case jrd decides to put this there. If he does, one of you tumblr fanboys is now morally obligated to walk me through the process of benefitting from that!

    Good stuff, J. If you want to make the credits complete, you might mention some of the others depicted, like maomao1980, gshen, iammatt, edmorel, mafoo, baron, and even me, I think.

    Can anyone PM me the credits? Probably saved them from WAYWN All Stars a long time ago. I always crop the faces.

    Can you post it in here? It seems like the reblog/source attribution element of the system covers basic use cases. I know that things like tumblrs posting nothing but links to movies on YouTube, etc., have been shut down by C&D's from you-know-who in Hollywood, but my impression is that generally original content creators are encouraging in their support of the free viral marketing reblogging of JPGs creates. I'm not saying it's impossible, but as a non-commercial enterprise I'd wager it's in the same ballpark as posting pictures you googled on a message board thread. I may be wrong: can't say I actively follow Internet IP as it intersects with things like blogs. Feel free to edify.


    It's one of those things where you start it so you can, as you intend to do, follow some blogs, then you suddenly find yourself posting your own material and pretty soon it takes over your life. In other words, fun ahead! One of the few instances where I've found the synergy of interface and content to be perfect.

    +1. Post each image on it's own. Tag it with either blue / brown etc.

    Then when you go to http://jrd617sguides.tumblr.com/tagged/blue or http://jrd617sguides.tumblr.com/tagged/brown it will collage the images together, much like what you have done at the start of this thread.

    It will save you loads of work and make for a very useful guide.

    At the top of your tumblr template you can have links for "Blue", "Brown" etc which link to the addresses as shown above.

    Hope this all makes sense!
