How can I make my own banner and avatar and get on my BL?

Edit: I notice a lot of people put their name and age. Is it safe to do that or will I have to worry about creepy people stalking the internet?

I used a free image editing program called GIMP, but you could use Microsoft Paint to add text to an image for ur banner.

As for the age and stuff, I would think it is safe, but I'd rather just put a username.

And how do I get the banner onto my BL?

You would have to upload it somewhere online, like photobucket or facebook or myspace. Once that it done, you can right-click on the image, copy the URL and paste it into the edit banner box on BL

Is there any way to do it without joining something? I have limited computer access because I use my dad's computer and email.

☑ No.

EDIT: Sorry, I thought you were talking about the Backloggery itself, my bad.

Yay! Thanks

Most of my friends on BL are from here. All except for one, I think.

I'm thinking I might link to previews/reviews in the comments section for each game in my backloggery...seem like a good idea or a waste of time? Does anyone actually click on the game names or only read people's updates?

Do you mean look through the user's entire list of games? If so, then yes.

Well, I don't know how the comments section shows up. If someone has an online code against the game it shows a little globe; if the comments don't have some kind of indicator (I'm talking the box here, not the status field) then there's probably little point as you'd have to do more than just browse the list to know something was there.

Backloggery has one big problem in my eyes. It lacks a database. I would love to add a game and just see which other users have this game or are playing this game at the moment.

It did have a game pages section, exactly like you've stated. However they were unhappy with how it was and took it down a while ago.

Sneaker13

That's a shame. It would be a great feature especially to see who have a specific game too.

I think the problem with a database in a set-up like that is standardising the game names. I refer to a lot of games in my Backloggery by European or Japanese release titles; if I had to conform to an existing entry for another region (or worse notify a site admin that they need to add an entry) I'd be less likely to use it. Seems like a win-win to me: site admins have less work; I can put what I like in my list.

Comments field still says "Coming Soon" so I guess it's premature to worry about leveraging that feature.

@Popyman, change the link in your sig to http://backloggery.com/popyman.

@Sean Aaron, there is a dutch site for movies. The have a database in which all the movies are. They use the original titles (doesn't matter if it's English or Japanese or whatever). So that wouldn't be a problem. Same with imdb or whatthemovie. Just enter the name in whatever language and it will find the correct name. This could work very well on a site like backloggery.
