A few guidelines for making an easily navigable texture topic. Topic Format
(This is a guideline --- you are free to use different setups, but please try to make it easy to use)Title:
Say when you last updated! Also, adding in the name of your newest texture doesn't hurt.

Use large names! --- Set them apart from the rest of your text!
Use thumbnails! I can't stress this enough...
---ImageShack: View your image's page (image details link), click the "Thumb" tab, and copy the "Forum" code! Paste into your post!
---Photobucket: "Link Options" underneath the first image in a gallery allows you to show different formatting code under pictures. Select IMG code! Now you should have IMG code under each pic! Copy and paste this right into the forum! Alternatively, you can check the box beside every image you want to use then scroll down to "Generate IMG and HTML code" at the bottom to generate multiple image codes at once!
Post download links near your images! Linking to a separate page is a hassle for your fans --- especially if you haven't named your files well!Cookie Yoshi
