09:50 pm - Two rejections in one ticket...
I can't believe I got two rejections on one ticket! *wah* One of them was caused by quite a bit of stupidity on my part... I really can't believe I didn't rememebr the rules properly... I wanted to post a painting I did for a friend. It's a handsome asian elf samurai type guy, with a bow, and a phoenix in the background. There is also this inside joke between my friend and I, because she's obsessed with this Chinese singer named Jay Chou. Yeah... the painting is *sorta* based off of Jay Chou, who *is* a celebrity. But honestly, the resemblance is miniscule and I would bet my rats that if I hadn't said anything in the description, no one would have recognized him. I just made him look like your generic handsome anime-ish guy. And now I've blown my chances of ever posting this picture, which I happen to quite like.

The other rejection is a bit more puzzling... it's a re-upload from before the crash. Which means that yes, it was accepted before. It's a firelizard, so it's Anne McCaffrey fan art. I was very careful in my description to explain all that, basically giving a flippin encyclopedia entry on Anne McCaffrey and her brilliant works. BUT apparently I did not put in the proper little (R) thigy... you know what I mean, the little R inside the circle. ACK!!! I am so computer illiterate, I have no idea how to make one of those. The mod suggested copying the symbol from the rules page. I will try it, of course, but I'm kinda sad that I'm gonna have to wait like.... another month or two before this drawing is actually published. (I don't believe in single picture tickets... I like to save 'em up for a bit so I have a few...because I know i'll be in the middle of the queue when i have something new i want to upload).

This really stinks.

something fun you can do to find the codes for all those little things is do a search on your computer hard drive for a file called "charmap.exe" or you can go to C:\WINDOWS\system32 and scroll down past the folders to the files, and find it.

the Character Map is a little program that comes with windows (i always have a shortcut on my desktop) and you open it, and it's got all these little boxes, with all these little symbols on it. from question marks to arabic letters to the ® and © just highlight the symbol you want and look down at the bottom right corner and it will have "Keystroke: _________" and a code. usually it's alt+**** and four numbers. just hold down the ALT button and hit the numbers on your NUMBER PAD, not the numbers across the top of the keyboard, but the ones over on the right in the block.
