Rundown: [community profile] rpanons is an anonymous community for role-play related topics. This place serves as a forum for game discussions, canon discussions, RP solicitations (ATP, game ads, open memes), and advice. The occasional off topic comment is inevitable, but please keep heated social and political topics to their respective communities. Posting them here will only get them frozen. Subsequent threads made to bypass a freeze will then be deleted.


Do not post pornographic or shocking images.
Do not share private entries, plurks, chat logs, etc.
Do not use this community as your social/political/hatespeech soapbox.
Do not be redundant. One page does not need three or more threads on one topic/theme. Your unfunny, forced memes also fall under this rule.
Do not treat this comm like your personal therapist. Threads about nonfictional suicide, self injury, rape, and abuse will be deleted. There are better resources out there for you.
Do not treat this comm like your personal Plurk or Twitter. Off-topic happens, but it should be open for discussion and not just a play-by-play of your life. No one cares.
Shut up about Tumblr. If it's not a discussion about Tumblr RP it will be deleted.



Political topics are still banned. Report threads and they will be deleted.

gif making help?

gif makers out there, what are some good tutorials for someone who wants to learn how to gif from video files and eventually make those dumb edits?

Anyone have a good tutorial for making video game icons?


(Anonymous) 2017-04-01 04:31 am (UTC)(link)
they're all different, just like live action is and a lot of anime are. it's not like coloring in b&w or cleaning up the average comic scan. you'll have to be more specific unless you're just looking for a psd you can slap on, which even then might not look good.

game nav graphics/etc

(Anonymous) 2017-04-02 01:51 pm (UTC)(link)
i'm wondering how to go about doing navigation/premise graphics, that sort of nonsense for new rp games. i've never actuallu done them before so i was hoping there was maybe some kind of tutorial someone made or maybe even like, a skeleton/base i can edit.

i'd suggest checking [community profile] dreamcodes. they've got tags and you can browse what's posted there and possibly find more by clicking through to the journals that have posted to the community.

and i looked into the tag for navigation and found this, which seems like exactly what you're looking for:

is anyone currently taking drawn icon commissions?


(Anonymous) 2017-04-07 01:44 am (UTC)(link)
Is it possible to change the source image when you hover over an icon? I'm trying to do some code so that, in the journal, when you hover over any of the user icons they all transition to an "anonymous" type of icon.

I've fiddled with z-index and the like. Maybe my brain is just fried from the long day I've had but I just can't get it to work, so if anyone can help or tell me if it's possible that would be super.

My current code in the stylesheet is:

.userpic { position: relative; width:100px; height:100px; float: left; margin-top: -50px; padding-right: 10px; }
.userpic img, .userpic:hover { position: absolute; background-image: url(''); width: 100px; height: 100px; position: relative; z-index:2; }

I've messed with it so much that it's messy and falling apart now alas. The best I've gotten was for the image to appear, but it would appear underneath the user icon and over to the right, despite setting top: 0px; and left: 0px; so I don't even know at this point.

Any help is appreciated.

This fix probably isn't going to be perfect—you'll likely have to go in and adjust for your specific style (ex. I tested it on my own journal; you'll be able to see that the border just fucks right off as soon as I hover, but if I coded that same border under "userpic:hover" I think I'd be fine). If you're having any trouble doing that, though, let me know.

In the meantime, start here:

Basically what this does is make it so that when you hover over the userpic div, it makes the image inside the div invisible, showing you the background (i.e. the "anonymous" icon) instead. The first line of code keeps the div fixed at 100x100 pixels so the div doesn't just disappear for lack of visible content, though.

Hope this does the trick for you!

can someone help with some plurk css?

since the recent code push, all of the plurks on my timeline have transparent backgrounds. they used to have a beige color behind them but not anymore. i have a dark background image so i can barely read the text in the plurks without highlighting them. this is the code for my plurk.

if anyone could help that'd be great! i contacted plurk themselves a week ago but they haven't replied back to me yet :c

Delete this code here:

.plurk_cnt:not([class*="metro"]) {
background: transparent !important;
color: #d6d6d9;

Or, if you want that beige color, change it to this:

.plurk_cnt:not([class*="metro"]) {
background: #d6d6d9 !important;

I couldn't quite test the color on my own due to having different coding overriding it with !important commands, but so long as you take out the transparent !important part, your timeline plurks will stop being transparent.

basically, the new code push (from what I can tell) prioritizes !important over secondary characteristics like color when determining backgrounds. You should still have the transparent overlay effect in your coding on hover, since that line of code was overriding just how plurks show up and not hover effects. If it's still too transparent to see clearly, just remove the /*-- Plurk transparency --*/ section, even though your plurks won't do the fancy fade in and out thing.

Hope this helps!

i'm trying to icon a vidya game (specifically dragon age: inquisition) and i'm running into the struggle of to sharpen or not to sharpen, and just general coloring issues? i don't usually have this much trouble with the selective colors/curves etc when i make icons, but da is a new format for me and i'm really having a hard time getting it to even out right. any suggestions?


(Anonymous) 2017-04-10 11:39 pm (UTC)(link)
I've iconed that game, anon. Are some color issues the low, indoor light lit by candles, perhaps? I've found that with candlelit scenes that make the subjects too orange, a color balance layer can help. Usually I'll set the cyan and blue a little high to offset the orange, then lower the opacity of the color balance layer. Sometimes I'll even go way too far with the cyan and blue, then set the color balance layer to screen or soft light, then adjust the layer opacity from there. Another thing I enjoy using is gradient map. I have a small pack of gradients I downloaded from Tumblr ages ago, and I go ahead and set the gradient map adjustment layer to soft light before I start cycling through the gradients to see how each affect the orange in the image.

As for sharpening, I used to be guilty of oversharpening icon when I had a bad monitor. In my experience, less is more. I tend to duplicate the base layer, sharpen that, then lower its opacity. You can also use Edit > Fade Sharpen and bring it down. Whether I'm lowering layer opacity or using Fade Sharpen, I rarely have the number about 30 or 40.

Getting journal entries off the front page

(Anonymous) 2017-04-13 10:27 pm (UTC)(link)
Hi everyone, dumbest question ever probably but I'm seriously just this ignorant...

Is there a way to get an entry off the front page of one's journal without deleting it/making it private? I've seen people have one post on the front page that links to individual entries (character info, permissions etc.) without those entries actually showing up separately on that front page. And I don't know how they do that!

What I'm actually trying to do here is kind of hide/sweep under the rug a couple journal posts that have old abandoned threads. Don't want to delete or lock them, just feel like the front page is looking cluttered with them on there.

Re: Getting journal entries off the front page

(Anonymous) 2017-04-13 10:34 pm (UTC)(link)
I think what people do is set each journal page to show only 1 entry. That way their navigation is on top.

in addition to only showing one entry, if you only want your nav page to be the first post, you need to sticky it as well.
