View Full Version : Hi, thomax here

03-17-2013, 03:00 PM

I'm new around this guild-hall. IRL I live in Norway. I play pen & paper RPGs, mostly Pathfinder these days. If I'm a GM, the map is the first thing I make. If I'm a player, a map is all I need to get fired up and start believing in the story.

So I made this map which would be cool to get some feedback on, but I thought I'd introduce myself first. So hi there, you highly esteemed cartographers!

Welcome to the guild thomax, post up the map, maps we like lol

Thanks! I did post the map (roughly 24 hours ago). Got a message that it would not go online until a moderator had approved it. Does this go for every new post, or is it just the noobs who are throttled down?

Right... three days now since I posted a map. The message said I would have to await a moderator before the post would appear. Is business slow here, these days? Or maybe I did something wrong during submit? Wrong category? Or maybe the map was just too lousy to display on a guild page?

thomax, if I'm not mistaken you need five posts before you can post up pics in a thread. this is an anti spam measure on the board to make sure you're not a bot or troll :-). Go respond to couple of threads that interest you and post up the map again. When you are in the advanced post tab, you will see an attachment link follow the instructions there, a small thumbnail will show up after you upload it, make sure it is checked and then to the right there is another tab "insert inline" hit this and wait to make sure it finishes the upload.

RobA, the friendly admin, manually escorted my post through the Gates of Moderation. So the map is up (http://www.cartographersguild.com/dungeon-subterranean-mapping/22662-single-afternoon-dungeon-crawl.html)! Thanks!
