Re: Upcoming Forum Host Transfer 4/20-4/23 - Please Read

Transfer is complete. The site and forum are now under the management of the Garrison and Base. I have served as Webmaster and system admin for over 10 years (since before the birth of GLG) and it's time to move on, especially considering that I'm no longer an active member. The baton is being hande...

Re: TFA Reactions

Saw it Friday morning (it was work related! :) ). It was clearly a reboot (as JJ is wont to do) but without the direct and obvious glowing-neon R E B O O T sign hanging over it, so that was kind of the point behind all the similar plot and production elements. It was meant to appeal to both generati...

Re: ANOVOS = Argh! (now I have to make a decision)

What it doesn't tell me is what size the helmet is.

If it's AP-like, I can't wear it. If it's closer to RT or better yet, ATA ( ;) ), then yes, I could.

(not that I'm actually in the market for any costumes anyway, since I have this little thing called "tuition" to pay for....)

Re: Submission Photo Advice

My photos were with a Canon G2 2MP camera back in 2004. :)

(of course, my costume back then wouldn't be even close to approvable today)

Re: Great Lakes Fitness Center

Actually, you're in. By "cadet," we mean NCS. I altered the group colorings so that it'd be easier to see who's in that usergroup, so you should be good to go. Come join us in the "gym!"

I'll keep this thread unlocked for a little while just to make sure folks who are granted permission can get into the forum. If you can't, post here (remember that this is open to 501st, RL, and Cadets only).

Don't worry about that. I can alter permissions so that Cadet group members can see it and participate in it too.

Re: Great Lakes Fitness Center

Would you guys like to see this expanded into its own subforum in a slightly more private area? Maybe we can take a page from the 300DC manual and each person creates his/her own thread, which also means more personalized poking and prodding when needed :) That way, we don't have to muddy up a singl...

Re: Photoshop help

It doesn't matter what application you have -- owning a software application doesn't automatically convey the expertise of the fundamentals :). You have to actually know the technique of using layers and Gaussian blur, and if you do, it doesn't matter if you have Photoshop CC, Elements, CS6, or even...
