LOM fun fact: On the LOM wiki, there is a subsection of the Yeti article titled "the Qinon Yeti". Interestingly enough, I did not add this to the wiki. The author remains shrouded in mystery.

MOL fun fact: The staff plans some of its UC arcs over a year in advance.

LMO fun fact: Because I feel like making a third fun fact, I hereby introduce the Lyths Math Ondron fun fact, which will be sporadically used for friendly staff reminders, likely only by me because all the other staff will sensibly agree that this is stupid and that we may as well just call it a Friendly Reminder. Anywho, friendly reminder: Staff members and non staff members alike are welcome to tell us any ideas they have for the LOM in the the Suggestions thread. :)

MOL fun fact: The MOL fact is notorious for only being true half of the time. Gilbert used it to great effect back in the day to hint at staff secrets and faction destructions. :P

He Got run over by a bus, I think.

Sorry about that. I did have two family issues, one invlolving a near death and another that I don't care to mention. Then I had two more weeks of exams, a migraine, and life.

But this was still inexcusable. Do you want to continue with it anyway?

Woah, okay. Don't worry about it! Sorry to hear that...hope everything's okay now!I'd kinda like to still do it, but I'm not sure how the timing would work out, since the Tourney is almost finished.
If you're too busy or just have a lot going on, we don't have to!

I usually use the pixlr online editor, though interestingly enough PowerPoint also has a pretty good background removal feature. There's probably better programs for picture editing though.

EDIT: In general though, it's best not to make the background solid black. If you take pictures on a black background, you can use the curves option on the pixlr editor to get a gradient of blacks and dark grays, though it will also make the foreground slightly darker.

I use Photoshop Elements, but most of the time I don't do background removal though because it's just so tedious if you want it to look half decent.

Usually I'll just use a colored piece of paper for my background and then in editing just clean up the model and correct colors and lighting to make it look decent.
