Blog Name: alter ego

Blog URL: http://alterego-wow.blogspot.com/

Blog Focus: mostly casual player content (quite obsessed though ;)), that means: no raiding, experiencing the WoW-world solo/five-men-only

Character Name: Algabal

Character Server: Frostmourne (EU)

Other Information: As my native language is not English, please forgive me my inproper use of idioms/phrases/gramar (I try to do my best, though) and please feel free to correct me or hint me to my mistakes. I am always trying to improve my skills.
Edit: I just brought this blog to life a few days ago, so it's still under construction and things will be added to the layout. But if you think I lack something major, give me a note!

Looks quite alright, and your english is far from horrible. Nothing to be ashamed of.

Welcome. I too thought your english was fine :) And I enjoyed reading it.

I have one teeny tiny suggestion that may or may not be easy to implement. It isn't a big huge deal if you can't but...regarding your background image, is there any way to make it fade at the end into a solid background rather than repeat?

That is actually a very good suggestion, because the background image bothers me myself!
I would love if anyone here can help me out on that - I simply have no idea how to do it. (I have never done any html or programming of any sort. To set the blog up, I simply followed tutorials I found in the net :roll:) If no one here can, I will try to get hold of my younger brother who definitely can do such things, but is always too busy to do so. :wink:

You would need to copy it 9x into "paint.net", photoshop, paint shop pro, or whichever you prefer.
Then use a tool to blur / fade / bleed the edges of the outlaying images into the main one, then cut out the center image and "in theory" that one would then be able to be used as a repeating image.

I'm sure there's better ways to do it, but that's just one.

The main thing you'd want to do is ensure that the left / right side of the image fit together perfectly. In a model based world that shouldn't be too hard to do. The top/bottom is where the blurring comes in.


Code:

Thanks for your help Bbr. :D
I'll give it a try on the weekend.

Otherwise my brother promised to help, but I won't see him until March. Guess if your method is not working out, I will just have to live with it until then.
