HOW TO UPDATE THE BADGE


If making the badge is not possible - please use the generic small badges in the comment above

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


A ) GET THE AVATAR:
Avatar images as you see in the sidebar here on the right are not simply embedded images, dragging and dropping the image to the desktop does not work.

What you can do:
1 ) Use the big image on the profile page by simply copying the image URL (right click on the image -> copy image location)

2 ) Get the custom avatar - See: How to get the avatar image
(or you can try finding existing avatar images here)

3 ) Not use a custom avatar - use the generic avatar versions (see below)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



B ) UPDATE THE BADGE CODE

CUSTOM AVATAR BADGE (Default version)
Copy and replace in this code

1 ) LINK_TO_AVATAR (1x)
2 ) DATE_GOES_HERE (1x)
3 ) CL_ARTIST_NAME (3x)
4 ) LINK_TO_CLAD_PAGE (2x)
5 ) if necessary: her -> his in 'Visit her fabulous palettes'

NO CUSTOM AVATAR - GENERIC AVATAR VERSION
Replace same as above except the link to avatar :
>> Female generic avatar code
>> Male generic avatar code

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------




C ) SHARING THE CODE
Create a new notepad page using the CLAD's name by typing in the address bar:

http://notepad.cc/CLADNAME <-DO NOT SHARE THIS LINK!!

at the bottom of the page there's a share button for the non-editable version of the same page.

example
>> http://notepad.cc/CLADCOLOURlover - Editable version
>> http://notepad.cc/share/yP9bGWWzLB - Non-editable version to share

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



OMG! THERE'S AN ERROR!
I make lots of errors, knowing the above you can access the editable version of the code and correct my badges!

SOME CONSIDERATIONS SUGGESTING A NEW CLAD


The CLAD is chosen amongst the active members* of this group. The CLAD is selected using a RANDOM CHOOSER
A list of all the active members that have not yet been CLAD is entered and the random chooser decides who will it will be.

Some considerations:

1)* - Is the member an active CLAD member? - Has the lover participated ?
CLAD wouldn't work if everybody expected to receive without giving.

+ Some members seem to join many groups without looking what it's all about.
Since no new CLADs have been posted for a few months we are relaxing the rules for the relaunch to include any member who is active on CL and who has not yet been CLAD, other criteria still apply

THAT'S WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO TAG YOUR ITEMS 'CLAD'
To see if someone has participated we search tag+name.
Example:
patterns CLAD+ name: bmarchelle
palettes CLAD+ name: bmarchelle

NB: You may find non CLAD items tagged CLAD - please check feather



2) - Does the lover have enough palettes?
in case of new members, better wait if the lover has only 3 palettes


3) - Are there chances that the lover will be online today?
If the lover you wish to suggest hasn't been online for 3 days - maybe he/she's on holidays?
Once a potential CLAD is chosen, better re-check and see when he/she was last online.


To check if someone has played CLAD search:

patterns CLAD+lovername
palettes CLAD+lovername


- Exceptionally, for special occasions, we have elected non CLAD members.
In this case consider: Will the lover be pleased to be the CLAD?

NB: If you have joined and do not wish to be CLAD please say so (leave a comment or send a not to Dawn)
