Since a bunch of us are having so much fun making blinkies these days, I thought I would start a thread where we can share our creations :biggrin:

Here are 2 I made:

Hi! I love blinkies too, although I'm not sure I can share mine: I've made them for designers or creative teams. I show you the ones I love the most. The first one was made for redju (a designer), and the 2nd one for a french company building seats for airplanes.

You can see the other ones on my blog.
I'm struggling with my blinkie. That's funny, cos all the others I made were very easy!!!

great idea Beckie! I will get on it soon, I have a yucky head cold right now... blah. I love your new blinkie though, its awesome! What size should we make them, cuz I noticed the ones I made were too big or too small?

the right size for blinkies is 150x50 pixels.

Oh no, Amy ... that's no fun! Hope you feel better soon, eat lots of chicken noodle soup :wink:
I make mine 150x50 - I think that's the standard size, but people make them bigger/smaller too.

I just snagged one. :D
I only have 5 blinkies in my signature, but when I try to add another, it tells me only 6 are allowed and to go back and change it. um...isn't 5 less than 6?? and then one more should still work... :confused:

There is a way to cheat: if you host your blinkie somewhere, you can just "call" it with that line:
[ img ] the_url_of_your_blinkie [ / img ]

just get rid of all spaces in the line.

That's what I have been doing. All 5 (plus the 6th one) are hosted at photobucket. I'm trying to make them shorter by using tinyurl.com, to see if that is affecting it. I do have other things to do today, but this is more fun. :D

OK. 7 doesn't work. How about 6 ?

babyofmine
09-10-2007, 11:01 AM
Ha!! I figured out what it was!! I had the same code in there twice for the same blinkie, so when I tried to add the "6th" it was actually adding a "7th". got it now! :D

I had a similar problem the other day: I couldn't see my blinkie. I thought maybe it was because the name was "blinkie_designer.gif", and the word designer was not allowed? I tried to change the name 2 or 3 times, before I realised I was not on the right folder....

I like your new blinkie!!

Just as an fyi, I did increase the max from 4 to 6 sometime ago, probably after this thread was started...so you all weren't going crazy :)

Thanks to everyone who's making blinkies and those that are showing them off in support of GDS!

Blinkie question:
can we use GDS designers backgrounds and elements in our GDS blinkies as long as we give proper credit?
Thanks!
(emst: I am working on your scrapper of the month blinkie!) cool idea!
