    Mod Hat — Notes on contributions

    I don't care about fonts or alignment.

    I would ask that people take the time to tag both the (url) and (img), for the convenient effect of being able to click on the picture and go to the source.

    (url=page address)(img)image address(/img)(/url)​

    I would also ask artist credit, please, with the year if possible.

    I will not limit content at this time beyond our normal standards, but if this turns into a pictorial flame war, I'll have to actually do something about that.

    Thanks, and enjoy.

    When the radical gets beast enough that you need a straightedge to draw it then it's time to just square both sides until the algebra is simplified
