Fussing with tables: a lame adventure in userinfo.

Check out my improved userinfo page, kid. It's in my van. Back there in the alley. 'Sgot candy in it.

I've been looking at a lot of userinfo pages, and I realized mine could be a little more informative and, well, fun. I mean look at xydexx's userinfo page, leex's ever-stylin' and sleek approach. Almost everyone else on my friend-list marches (to some degree) to the beat of the Minimalist Military March. (Man mutilated! Man mutilated! Medic! Maximum medical mediation!)

I don't think I'm done with it yet, though. I'm going to put some more fun stuff in there, a little bit more personal information, perhaps a taste of RL and Internet history, play with the formatting, and edit it. (“'An cartoon fanatic?' Oh bother.”) guido_jacobs made a great fantastic suggestion a week back, and because of that, I'm imagining one of my hypnotized drones you might think of something that would be great on my info page, too. Comment link is right down there~! ♥

I'm taking this as "I don't like it: it's tacky". :x

Oh, smooth faux-HTML job I did up there. I got my brackets all turned around. Fantastic. No wonder why I can't make a good userinfo page: I can't markup my way through a doughnut.

Thanks! I'm kinda concerned about going too far with it, you know? Still, even stilly ideas would be fun to read. ;]

No, not really. But if I remember right, 'talented' is one l and not two.

Post something concerning your art. XD Seriously. zomg. Maybe like... YOUR ART. Or a linky.

Yeah. See? Editing. All the actual writing is buried in HTML, and that's what I was trying to get right. At least my bad spelling is correctly displayed! X3

Art, yes, thought of that and there will be some in there. However, I don't have anything on-hand that would really fit. I guess I'll have to keep it in my mind while I have a pencil or tablet in hand, eh?

You should work on a Chibi Nerland. XD

Like, the building, or all of us? X3

Hai! X3 Nerland would look like... I dunno... a chibi optimus prime? o.O and we would all look reaaally... unique.

See, I read "chibi octopus prime" somehow. In those few mistaken moments, my head was filled with enough bizzarely wonderful images that it just redeemed this night. I didn't think that possible.

I saw this not that long ago, and my spirit went "squit". ...I like Iran. I have hope for them. I really do. I see things like this, though, and it hurts bad.

it's awesome, but you should really put that "people are made out of meat" poem in there.

Sat, Jul. 23rd, 2005 07:19 am (UTC)

Totally. Your original suggestion was the reason I trolled everyone for more ideas. You weren't just on the ball, you rode the ball to the moon.

A picture of yourself wouldn't be so bad, either.

Bah! I photograph horribly. If I can get a half-way decent photograph, then I'll stick it somewhere. Until that day comes, I don't feel like I'm depriving anyone. :P

Heehee...anonymous...now you won't know i'm your roomate....i just typed that, didn't i?

Anyway, you should glue some seiquins on your userinfo page. Elmer's dries clear and it's non-toxic. It also is made of all those pesky, usless racehorses that lose a lot.
Also, since you can see my IP, can you say "hi" to it? The people here don't really do much in the sense of communicating to their inanimate objects and I think he might be lonely.

Actually, I was thinking of some sort of uniforming border like leex has. I could totally pimp my userinfo page out with little gifs of shiney, shiney buttons. However, I'm thinking people would rather attempt to push them then read any of the contents of the page. :]

Poor IP! Released into a harsh, legislated world with nobody to anthropomorphize it and give it luvins. It's hard for a seemingly arbitrary sequence of numbers these days. :>

*heheheh* Wow, I think that if I ever have another bad night, I'll print this page of comments, and read it a hundred times...

Rather conversational, isn't it all? I'll agree, though: this post and subsequent thread has been a blast. Besides that, how many LJ posts do you see about the userinfo page? It's something I know everyone thinks about at some time or another, but I rarely see any discussion of it. We talk a lot about our LJ icons, but I would argue that the lowly userinfo page is more important to LJ identity than any icon.
