Server trouble

Hey folks, just wanted to give you a heads-up that the server's been crashing the last couple of nights. I'm trying to keep an eye on it while we figure out the root cause, but if you can't get to it please drop me a line and let me know.

My apologies for any frustration!

Pop Quiz…well not really.

get-well-soon

As most of you know, Kaldath has been going through some health issues of late. Because he contributes soooooo much to this site, I thought it might be good if we let him know how much we appreciate and care about him.

So instead of a pop quiz this week, let's use Heromachine to let him know we are thinking about him.

So your "non-pop quiz" challenge this week is to create a get well card for Kaldath. On Monday at noon I will email the link to both Kaldath and his sister. Lets show some love and send some positive vibes his way.

Cheers!

David

Kaldath could use your thoughts, prayers, and/or well wishes

I just got a scary email from Kaldath's sister:

Hey I am Kaldath's sister. He is in the hospital here in NJ and VERY sick. He is having surgery tomorrow and could use some prayers. Don't know how to work this website so maybe you can put the word out for him. He has is personal cell phone but right now it is off as the battery is dead and no charger with him.

I can be reached via email at bheftersmom@gmail.com.

I hope things go well for him tomorrow, I can honestly say that much of this community wouldn't exist without Kaldath. All the best, my friend, get well soon and completely.

Taking a week or so off

Hey Folk,

Just want to let you all know that due to being incredibly sick right as well as having some major back pain issues at the same time I find myself unable to focus on anything for very long and also in very bad temper. As a result of this I plan on taking a week or so break from doing anything related with HeroMachine. In fact beside for going to work at night I am spending all my time in bed sleeping or trying to sleep. Please do not try and contact me unless you can not react one of the other mods first. I am miserable and just wish all the pain and discomfort would go away!

Pop Quiz – Triple Play!

Capture

Your Pop Quiz challenge is wide open subject wise, but there is a catch; you MUST use the three items pictured above as part of your creation, they must be clearly visible as part of your creation, and they must NOT be used for their intended purpose. I guess that’s three catches

You only get one entry so be creative, and above all else, have fun!

The winning entry will receive a design of a companion piece for your creation by yours truly. Not a remarkable prize, but better than a kick in the arse with a frozen boot.

All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like the HeroMachine :,ImageShackPhotoBucket, or whatever);

  • Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
  • The image must be new and designed specifically for the Pop Quiz;
  • No copyrighted characters please – they will be deleted.
  • Please name your filesas [your name]-[character name].[file extension] before you upload it. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his “Bayou Belle” character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.
  • Please make the link go directly to the image(like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this). See this post on how to get the direct link for most sites.

This contest will close at 6pm Eastern on Sunday, May 29th.

Pop Quiz – “Two Wheels, No Waiting!”

tumblr_lq4eg9PgZR1qam0yp

On May 21st, 1819, 1819 - Bicycles were first seen in the U.S. in New York City. They were originally known as "swift walkers." 

Your Pop Quiz challenge is to re-imagine this revolutionary mode of transportation as it might have looked in an alternative period in history. And just to be clear, the future is not a period in history. Maybe a caveman’s or a Pharaoh’s wheels intrigue you. Or perhaps Henry VIII’s bicycle is more your style.

You only get one entry so be creative, and above all else, have fun!

The winning entry will receive a custom costume/uniform design  for the bicycle's rider by yours truly. Not a remarkable prize, but better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.

All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like the HeroMachine :,ImageShackPhotoBucket, or whatever);

  • Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
