Sad news...
« on: May 10, 2009, 05:58:31 pm »
Thank you, IRC, for bringing us this lovely information.

It would appear as though our dear Compendiumite, Laith, was in a car wreck. According to his brother, he was going 60 MPH and hit a guard rail. And he's not doing too good. His right knee and wrist have shattered, his pelvis is cracked, and he has suffered serious brain injuries.

Laith is currently in a coma.

Right now, his family is hoping for the best. Let us keep him in our thoughts for now, shall we? Let's hope he either comes out of it and gets better, or that it doesn't last too long.

Oh my god.  I instantly started crying right when I saw "Car wreck".  Too familiar.  Oh man..I hope he'll be okay..

That is so sad. I didn't know him very well, but I hope he recovers.

We're making an E card for Laith. Tea or someone will fill in on how to do this. Here is my lil doing for it.

Again, thanks to the IRC for this idea.

We're going to be making a 'card', if you will. The final product will be a 1024x768 image, but it will be a collage. Make your image and attach it to your posts (as Shinrin seems to have done before I got it in), so that when we get enough images Zephira will shop them all together for a collage.

Thank you for all your kind words.

Oh snap, this is such a great idea! So we'll put a bunch of squares/rectangles together with our avatars or something else? Priceless. Thanks to everyone for this idea, and to Shinrin for providing a great template.

We can make a great big collage of these. The more wacky you can make it, the better, so it's not a strict template or anything. What SGR posted is great too. Make it your own thing I guess.

EDIT: Oh, yeah, nobody post a picture of a dick or anything. Laith's family will probably end up seeing it.

Faust, they don't have to be squares, they can be a drawing or a scribble or whatever. I'm collecting them as they're posted and putting them into one big PSD.
Also, for anyone making something that isn't a square, make sure your background is either transparent, or a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT colour than what's in your picture. It makes it a lot easier to piece together. Thanks!

Awesome, thanks for taking leadership of this Zephira. I'm not sure what was agreed to in the IRC after I left, so that's cool. Great job everyone.

Here's my thing. I just realized the text is itsy bitsy, but it says 'rise from the ashes and get better, Laith/from teaflower'
