New to posting on the forum; not new to OP

Hi everyone!

I've been using OP for a couple of years now, and I've even read some forum posts in the past, but this is my first day posting to the forums. I figure I should introduce myself.

I am running a Carrion Crown (pathfinder) game at my home with 5 players. Each week, we rotate who keeps track of the adventure, and then that person writes the log from their point of view. We starting doing this six sessions ago when I took over as DM for Carrion Crown, after the last party nearly TPK'd and the GM didn't want to run it anymore.

I've made our OP page public if anyone would like to read along as we play. :)

I apologize that it doesn't look pretty; I'm not very good at CSS or formatting. If anyone wants to make suggestions, by all means do so. :)

    Welcome to the forums! Your campaign looks interesting I'm excited to see it progress, i suck at CSS myself but i rly like tinkering with just normal formatting. My only advice would be to aim for three things in particular:
    1) A very condensed, easy to navigate wiki
    2) Clean and neat appearance, don't clutter things up
    3) visual aids in the form of pictures are always a very nice touch

    Feel free to borrow anything you like from my own campaign if you want! Always happy to help =]

    Hi Jarred

    Welcome to the Forums. As both KVP and TW have said, things are pretty hectic at the moment. I myself am a bit of an illiterate when it comes to CSS but, with the help of the wonderful colleagues on these forums, do my best to provide a working platform for my tabletop RPG players. I am a bit of a lurker (some might say prowler) but I am sometimes able to add a little sparkle to these RPG boards and always welcome NEW BLOOD!

    Thanks for the kind words of support. :)

    Tolsimir: Thanks for the advice. Based on the three points, do you see anything with my page that you would recommend I clean up?

    Can we put pictures in the middle of an adventure log?

    Yeah, if the image embedding works properly. At the moment it takes on the order of 5-20 minutes to load for some campaigns, since it's loading every-single-image that you've ever uploaded. Blah.

    Something that really needs to be fixed.

    But yes, pictures in adventure logs are definitely possible.

    What makes a campaign on OP popular? Is it just a good game, or the way it is presented, or the page layout, a combination of those plus more?

    Oh boy, um i would say visually appealing, easy to navigate, interesting logs, and active in the forums will all get you out there.
