The Integrity Toys Gene Data Base and more.....

I have moved the Gene Data Base from The Studio Commissary chat board. This clears space at the top of the board and I think it is more suited for the blog here.

Click on the tab at the top of the page to view it. There is a lot of info there!

Another great resource for all things Gene is the Gene Marshall Wiki page:
This is a work in progress and has all the Ashton Drake Gene product listed as well as some Integrity product.

Posting Photos on Message Boards

I have an photo on my hard drive that I would like to post. How can I post it to the message board? 

There are two ways to do this.... 

First Option
To start, you'll need to find a place on the internet to store the image. There are online places that make it easy to upload images, such as Flickr, Picturetrail, The Doll Page & Photobucket to name a few. Once you have photos uploaded, you are ready to post them.

To post the image to your message, you'll need to enter the full URL or "Address" of the image in the "Image URL" box below the message box. An example of a full URL is You obtain this URL at the hosting site of your photo.

Right click on the desired photo which will open a box. Click on "Properties" at the bottom which will open another box. Look for the "Address" or URL of the photo. It begins with http....ending with jpg. Highlight and copy this address, then paste into the "Image URL" box.

After entering the URL, simply click "Add" and then you can repeat, if desired to add more than one photo.

Second Option
You can also post photos through TinyPic when you post your message. This is a bit easier and doesn't require you to sign up at a hosting site.

Along the bottom of the message box look for the words "upload image". Click on this to open a window for uploading pictures. Click the "Browse" button and find the photo on your hard drive. Double click the photo and it is added to the box.  

File type is "image" so make sure that is checked. No tag is necessary. Open the drop down box next to "resize" and choose "message board" then click "UPLOAD NOW!" You will see the photo appear so click the "Add to your post" button below the photo and the picture will be added when you post your message.
