    -This topic is for posting your monthly pre-orders as well as showing off your latest loot-


    It's hard to believe we're already entering our 2nd month at our new home, and with a new month comes a new thread! When we first moved over things moved fast and were a little hectic, so this time around we're going to combine a couple of previous topics into one.

    -Useful forum browsing tips-

    At the basic level, MFC forums are functional but flawed. One of the biggest offenses is in how the forums handle picture resizing, or to be more precise -- how they don't. Up to this point most of us have dealt with it by putting large pictures in spoiler tags, but I'm here to tell you there's a better way!

    1.) The first method is all thanks to one of our regular users, ShadowSoldier89 who has created a plugin that will set the forum page width to the full width of the window. To begin you'll need to install the plugin 'Stylish'

    Mozilla users click here
    Chrome users click here

    Once it has been installed, click the 'Stylish' icon that should have appeared on your toolbar (or find it in the plugins menu if it did not appear on the toolbar), and select "manage installed styles"

    In this new window click the "write new style" button
    View spoilerHide spoilerhttps://i.imgur.com/BxJHi50.png

    This will bring up a new large area to type the script into. Lucky for us, SS89 has already done the work!

    For Mozilla copy and paste the following
    @-moz-document regexp('http://myfigurecollection.net/(?=.*discussions)(?=.*&did).*') {

    #content

    {

    width: 99%

    }

    }

    For Chrome copy and paste this
    #content

    {

    width: 99%

    }


    Once you've done that you'll next need to select what it applies to by clicking the "Specify" button below the code dialogue box
    View spoilerHide spoilerhttps://i.imgur.com/pM9Dy5f.png
    From the drop-down menu select "URLs matching the regexp" and then paste the following code onto the line.
    http://myfigurecollection.net/(?=.*discussions)(?=.*&did).*
    View spoilerHide spoilerhttps://i.imgur.com/1AlYdxA.png

    Once that's all done, just give the script a name and click save! Now, your threads should be as wide as your browser window, and best of all those huge images will no longer be clipped in half!

    2.) While this isn't nearly as good of a solution as the one SS89 provided, you should be hosting your pictures on imgur. It's a free image hosting site that gives you a lot of options when linking your images on the web. Of particular interest is the ability to link to a version of your image that imgur re-sizes on their end.

    With image re-sizing out of the way, there's just a couple more tips I'd like to share.

    1.) You don't have to manually add bbc code tags. Just like on GAF, highlight the text you want affected and select the effect you want from the drop-down list. It will automatically place the correct tags at the beginning and end of the selected text.

    2.) There only exception to this is embeding a url into text. The proper syntax for this is
    [url=www.website.com]Your text here[/url]

    3.) Finally, the super secret not listed tag; embedding video! This is actually quite simple. First, it only works with youtube. You'll need to copy the video id portion of the url and place it in tags like this

    and the result...







    and with that, let's kick off this thread! No whining about large pictures! You guys don't have an excuse now!

    This month is going to be light for me. I've cancelled a bunch of figures, and I'm selling a few more still. I need to cleanse myself of some hasty purchases.

    Up until now we had separate threads for pre-orders and new loot. Are we really dropping the "New loot" thread?

    Yes, it makes a bit more sense for all of the "Hey, look what I bought this month" posts to be in one topic.

    Only things I have pre ordered for June.

    Might be on the hunt for a few things but only if the price is right. May was hell so June needs to be small.

    Edit: Also I like the idea of fewer threads.

    Well, most of the stuff I was expecting in May has arrived or is in transit, some seem to be delayed, just adding the three expected to come out in June (all hail Pochaco!)

    Seems Vampi was also delayed, same time frame as Miss Frost (Jul-Sep)

    Haha.
    I just saw it got delayed two days ago.
    This game just can't catch a break.
    Looks like it's a manufacturing issue (read: "Oh god, P4:Dancing is out that day and Taiko V the next week.") this time.

    Ooh, new month thread! Well, everyone here already knows my pre-order for the month (Ooh, pretty wings!):

    http://s1.tsuki-board.net/pics/figure/large/166816.jpg

    My only worry now is where I'm going to put her. I don't think the shelf I currently have my scales on will fit all of them when she arrives due to her wingspan. Oh well, I've got a month to figure that out! ;)

    Looking forward to posting some pictures here in when my May pick-ups arrive sometime next week, though I don't have a good camera so I'll have to experiment with getting the most out of my phone. I just pray it's nice out so I can film them on my balcony (natural lighting FTW)! =)

    Assuming no one gets delayed:

    Luke will be out on June 9th and is paid for (as are Lloyd and Tomoyo), but I'll be stunned if Lloyd isn't pushed back.

    This is one of those figures that looks amazing and really wish I could justify it but she has no where to go in my collection. It's depressing.

    Since I don't have anymore preowned items that I want, June is a light month for me. So light that I added 2 fans to my order. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Right now this is the only thing I have coming for June. Which is probably good because I spent a ton of money here in May.

    If funds build I could spend more on Hot Toys(it's becoming an obsession).

    Amiibo month for me, and kind of the calm before what is still a bit of a small storm that will be July for me.:P

    Getting Inkling boy this week (supposedly tomorrow surprisingly), and Ness sometime next week.

    Both were suppose to be May orders, but delayed. Hopefully it doesn't get delayed anymore.
