Suggestion: Punched Across The Room get usage counts

I think I've got a better one:

In uffish thought
Wow, nice. I prefer it to the current.
I don't see a difference in quality.

Though the first thing I thought of was to cut the picture in half, and place the lower bit down as The Stinger...

The Internet misuses, abuses, and overuses everything.

[up] Definitely prefer the suggestion to the current, and I like that idea.
In uffish thought
That's a cool idea, if it works. I'm testing it at Sandbox.Punched Across The Room, and splitting the image at the line where there's a slight jig from previously being stitched together.

It is very tall, but that actually has artistic merit here. Hulk is punching a guy across the page.

I'd rather go all the way and have the other end at the bottom of the page, honestly.

Just tried it out on the Sandbox. Not sure if I like the end result, acutally... right above Real Life might be better.

[up] Better, but it's still kind of dangling past the end of the page. Kind of makes me wish there were a way to guarantee it'd be vertically aligned with the bottom - but since that's a situation that never comes up (since we do our images at the top, generally), I figure no such method exists. Best way I can think is either leave it above Real Life (slightly dangling into the bottom), actually put it into the bottom (extending the page by that much consistently across all resolutions), put it inside Western Animation (which means it would vanish if the folder were closed, which is undesirable), or just put it back in the middle of the page as it had been, and give it up. All aren't especially appealing.

Okay, that is absolutely brilliant. [awesome]

I lol'd.

What worries me is that newbies might not scroll down to the bottom, and the new image would be a net loss for those who don't.

However, I really like the idea. It's just too funny and creative.

Not worried about that. Plus, the longer the interval between seeing the first and second part, the more like a Brick Joke it is.
Becky: Who are you? The Mysterious Stranger: An angel.
Huck: What's your name? The Mysterious Stranger: Satan.
even older skool
On the other hand, with all folders closed both images can fit on the screen at once (at least in 1080 vertical resolution)

In uffish thought
Does the way it currently is, with the bottom one sandwiched between two lines after the last folder, look better? I didn't like the way it was breaking the line at the bottom. (I also wish the [[hardline]] markup would force the second ---- line below the picture; as it is, there's a lot of \ \ and so on. It should be in the right place for everyone, though, as a picture's height isn't affected by you widescreen snobs. tongue)

It looks good to me, on my modest 1920x1200 screen.

Also, I'm happy it was actually possible to do it the way I wanted to without it looking horrible.

New image is up in both places, potholed, IPD tag is in place, old image is on new Image Links page, and I even fixed a FiM bullet that was bothering me. We good.

Excellent; locking up. Nice work, everyone.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
