Thanks! I've been talked into entering the upcoming Prettiest Profile Contest. ^o^
And likewise, btw. Your profile background inspired me to go searching for cute pictures of Pokemon. I actually found a bunch of good ones and dedicated a whole album to them. If you ever want to use one, I'll totally share. :3
Wait, I can make the secondary context areas transparent? o.o See, that's why you're so awesome. ^o^ I know how to swap the profile picture for a video, but I didn't know I could make everything transparent. Can you let me know how to do all that?
And don't mention it! If you look back a couple of pages in my profile you'll fid a conversation I had with Wolf about CSS. That was the first time I ever played around with it, and now I consider myself to be pretty decent. ^^;; So it doesn't take long to figure out. It's all very self explanatory when it comes down to it. Just let me know if I can help with anything else! :D
Lemme finish up some homework and I'll be on in ten~ ;)
Did you do the profile video trick? Basically, you set the option to make your profile video take the space of your profile picture, and then just make all the secondary content areas transparent. That is so cool, though, I knew of the text shadow code, but I've never messed around with it extensively, thanks so much/get on MSN <3.
I added all the padding I can but the primary context area still covers the background. It almost looks like you have the Tyranitar there as a profile picture, but it's not. Unless I'm totally missing something. lol
The text shadow? It's a part of the CSS code. I'll give you a few examples..
Or in my case, this~!
The text shadow code itself looks like this:
text-shadow:#your color of choice ; 0.2em 0.2em 0.4em
The first example with the black text, is exactly the text shadow code I wrote above, with the same number spread. The numbers part of the code represents exactly where you want the shadow to be placed adjacent to the text. So, the first set of numbers determines how far to the right of the text you want the shadow to be. The second set determines how far below the text you want the shadow to be. And finally, the last set of numbers determines how much "fade" the shadow will have. So, as you can see in example #2, there is very, very small shadow "fade", there for it looks like a duplicate of the text.. more or less. The third example (the one I use in my signature) has a small shadow fade and is placed far below the text. You can adjust it however you like to fit your needs! You can also adjust the color of the shadow (separate from the text) by adding the color's Hex Code right after the "text-shadow" command.
Anyway, here are the codes I used to create the examples in the above spoiler, so feel free to use them if you wish!
