New plugin, poll results & more!

Add comments

Earlier today, Tony over at EVE’s Weekend Warrior posted an article containing a great selection of must have WordPress plugins. If you haven’t read it yet and you have a self-hosted WordPress blog, you should definitely go and check it out!

The reason I’m telling you this is that I recently installed a plugin called Lightbox 2. This plugin allows images to be shown in a separate box, but still on the original page. I seem to be butchering the plugin by trying to describe its job when I can just show it to you. Click the image below and providing that your browser supports javascript (as all modern browsers should), you should see it appear on top of the page in its own little box.

Lightbox Test

The only problem with it seems to be that as it is among the last things to load with the page, if someone clicks an image before the page fully loads (as I tend to do) it will open on a page of its own as it normally would. But unfortunately it’s very unlikely that I can change that as as far as I know, that’s the way javascript works in being the last object to load.

And our audience says…

So, the results are in on the newest poll. This time around we had a total of 17 votes (at the time of this posting) spread across three possible answers.

  1. Actively look for a corporation – 8 votes – 47%
  2. Go solo – 6 votes – 35%
  3. Join a corporation but let them come to me – 3 votes – 18%

To be honest, despite the results of this poll being pretty clear, I’m still not entirely sure what to do. While I got some good corp offers from Wensley and Jeneral Jane, I’m still feeling the pull of a solo life. I have a feeling it may take me while to regain my confidence in whether a corp can stay active or not.

Exploring the space lanes

Earlier a reader (and fellow EVE blogger), Kirith Kodachi, contacted me to have a new blog header and forum signature made. Unfortunately the plans for the signature fell through because of unforseen circumstances but the plans for the header were still on. You can see the header below along with a screenshot of the header in action on Kirith Kodachi’s blog.



I’ll post a full post on this set of graphics once the signature plans come back up.

    Sorry to here you are still cornfuzed about corp life. The one nice thing about a corp like Blood Money Cartel is that solo pirating is encouraged very much by our dictator Skira Ranos. We are not your traditional corporation. So long as you are actively pirating, you are free to do as you wish and have the added benefit of additional wingmates as you need. I am pretty sure The Tuskers are similar but I will let Wensley speak about them.

    Thanks for the mention. I sent you a Twitter message instead of commenting.

    I have to admit, when reading up about Blood Money Cartel when I was looking into joining, the whole dictatorship thing did put me off a tad.
