Here's the collection.
Learned a lot of things for the next time I bind, which will probably be FO:E as well, as I offered up in the Danish brony community to bind any FO:E printouts they send my way.
Someone said I had unlocked the achievement "Fanfic Wrap-Up, Fanfic Wrap-Up." Is that a quest perk, I wonder?

I'm definitely going to wait until the revised final version comes out before I start printing it out, but I think I'm going to go for it. I'll probably end up binding it myself. Thanks for the tutorial videos. :) I know someone who did book binding for a job for a while, so I'm going to try asking her for some tips.

Yeah, me, too. I really want the book, but right now, I can't afford to buy a copy of my own, so this is the next best thing. :twilightsmile:

My thanks for the links to the tutorials, too. I think that I could also use then for the webcomics that I plan on printing out. :ajsmug:

For my own personal use, of course. :twilightsmile: :scootangel:

Holy ginormous signatures, Luna!

Please size that down, Whitewolf. Your signature does not need to be a roadside billboard.

I think that I will, too...for the same reasons that you are.

And I thank you for the tutorials, too. I'll probably save them to my Real Player Cloud thing so I can watch them when I'm offline, and see what I can do with them. :twilightsmile:

Also, this will come in handy for when I want to print off some of my fave comics...both commercially made and fan made. (For my own personal use of course. :twilightsmile: ) That way, I'll save on having to by regular loose leaf binders, and having to worry about whether I can get/find the right size, or not. :ajbemused: :applejackunsure:

Oh, okay. Sorry 'bout that. I sorta forgot about that. I'll go over to my PhotoBucket account and see if I don't have a smaller one. :twilightblush:

Btw, what's the size requirements for one? I may want to use a different one than this one, and I'd like to know the right size for them. :applejackconfused:

I don't think there's a specific limit, but I suggest keeping it under 150px in height, and under 1,000px in width.

Ah, I see.

Well, what about the one that I'm using now? Still too big? :applejackunsure:

Just lemme know and I'll try something else.

Okay? Cool. :ajsmug: :rainbowdetermined2:

Yeah, I know. I'm still workin' on findin' one that I like (in a much smaller size, of course), so I can upload it to my PhotoBucket account.

Which I finally did, actually. :raritywink:

The weird thing is, when I uploaded my current siggy pic, it didn't look near this big in my PhotoBucket library. Can't really understand that. :applejackconfused: :applejackunsure:

Oh, well......... :pipshrug:

Anywhoozles, this is likely the last time that you'll see...and have to suffer through...this one. :rainbowdetermined2:

Just bear with me for a few, okay? We had some runnin' that we had to do to before I got around to getting that new siggy pic uploaded to my PB account. :scootangel:

Okay, how's this? If the two of them make my siggy too big height-wise, I can remove the lower one.

(Although I was trying to make them be end to end, not one on top of the other, like you see here. Don' know why they won't do the way that I want them to.)

Ah, well......... :pipshrug: :bjpshrug:

Anyway, just let me know if this one is acceptable, okay? Thankies in advance. :raritywink:
