Book Klubs - leaderboards!
« on: December 23, 2008, 04:40:45 PM »
Here are leaderboards for the various Book Klubs that you can use in your signature block to show your interest and help make others on KindleBoards aware of the klubs!

All you need to do is copy the code from the highlighted sections into your signature block. I recommend separating the banners with a horizontal rule, which you can add easily like this:

Code: [Select]
[HR]
The banners will also be clickable as each klub's sub-forum is created.

Enjoy!
Mike

Thanks, Mike.  It was really nice of you to do all that work for us.  To see the whole thing, we have to scroll from side to side.  Can you shorten the line before the date so the whole banner shows without scrolling.

Thanks again.

D'oh! Hmm, I made them a bit "extra-long" in case we get longer titles, but can shorten them a tad... :-)

Okay, try them now... :-)

Have to leave them a bit longer than the regular leaderboards, 'cause some titles are gonna be longer than others (am just hoping to keep them a consistent size/look)...

Yee-ha!

Anne -

You might want to double-check your code - I shortened them up a bit, but looks like the ones you've got are the longer ones...?

Oh, and might wanna add a return after your ribbon icon to put the leaderboard below it. :-)

Dead Until Dark

Very cool....but I think the one above is slightly wrong.  The book is "Dead Until Dark" but the banner says "Dead Before Dark"....

Maybe we could do this the easy way and find a book called "Dead Before Dark" to read.  lol.  That could be fun too.   ;D

(I'm assuming that since I don't have a clue how to make those pics that it must be extremely difficult.  Maybe I should buy Mike a drink?)

Sure, that's your story and you're sticking to it.  I guess I need to keep an eye a closer watch on you people!  (I'm embarrassed that I didn't catch it!)

At least you spell "y'all" correctly....  ;D  (As a Texan, one of my pet peeves is people who don't. )

I'm from Arizona - not quite Texas, but close enough that I can spell it right! ;D

These look great! I had noticed them on some signatures and was wondering how to get one for myself. Thanks!

Broad breast, full eye, small head and nostril wide,
High crest, short ears, straight legs and passing strong,
Thin mane, thick tail, broad buttock, tender hide;
Look, what a horse should have he did not lack,
Save a proud rider on so proud a back."

I updated the code for the banners/leaderboards to link to the OUTLANDER thread. Just copy & paste the code to your sig block if you want to use it.  8)

Cheers,
