Sally906 | 1645 comments Hello! Am I first here? Silly question of course I am. It's bedtime for me - just as the fun starts.

Before I hit the pillow - for those who don't know me - I am Sally and I live in Australia.

There are only a couple of new names here I don't know - pleased to meet you.

Nice to catch up with some long time friends as well.


message 12: by Greta (new)

Greta | 1459 comments Hi Sally! I'm glad to be on a team with you :-)


message 13: by Sally906 (new)

Sally906 | 1645 comments Thanks - there are at least 3 Aussies here - so will have someone in my time zone to chat to :)

Off to bed now. Catch you later.


message 14: by Michelle (new)

Michelle (govmarley) | 3040 comments Hi everyone!! Really glad to be playing with you all. Greta, Stacie and I will be leading you through this madness for the next few months.

I'm headed to a long day of meetings but I will be back tonight to catch up.


Lisa - (Aussie Girl) | 5008 comments Hi everyone. Lisa from Sydney, Australia checking in... and now off to bed. (It's nearly midnight here. ) Looking forward to a "Mammoth" challenge.. groan, sorry I couldn't resist. Love our name, chat more tomorrow.


Berit Talks Books (berittalksbooks) Well... As you girls go off to bed, I am waking up good morning!
Most of you I believe I have met before, but for those of you I haven't I live in southern California :-)
Love that name, BTW

Greta | 1459 comments Berit, Is the weather there pretty much perfect all the time?? I believe this is our first team challenge together :D

Hi Lisa! I'm glad there will be a few other Aussies on the team for you to chat while the others are sleeping! I think we did some buddy reads together a while back...Phillipa Gregory, right?


message 19: by Stacie (new)

Stacie (cowmingo) | 4769 comments Good morning everyone! I'm Stacie, I'm your trusty co-captain for Wobble. Glad you are all excited to be on this team. It's an awesome name. I'm in MD though right now I'm at work in VA.

Just a couple of housekeeping reminders to be aware of:

1) Please don't start your books prior to the 17th as we won't be able to count them towards the challenge.

2) Please feel free to ask any questions you have. If you don't feel comfortable asking in the group, PM one of us.

3) The captain squad will be sending friend requests to everyone on the team. We need access to your shelves.

4) Have fun and read on!

Don't mind me, the snarling sabertooth is merely stalking the bird because it's hungry :-)

❀Tea❀ (ttea) | 9471 comments Hello team,

It's been pointed out in another team that I'm neglecting my mentor duties and didn't come to say hi.

So... Since I'm going to supervise your road to extinction victory I guess I could give you few pointers:

Stay calm. There is no need to panic. End is near and we are well prepared...


Have fun!

Of course it is! You'll have to teach me how to post a gif and make it work because I can never do it right.

*waves* hi Tea :) ! Don't worry, we will not go down without putting up a good fight, they will write about us in history books.

Tamika♥RBF MOOD♥ | 1422 comments Lol. Really?

You just find your gif with the ending is gif

Post like this
img src="example gif"

This is what the code looks like.

Getting on my computer to do it properly. Lol


Tamika♥RBF MOOD♥ | 1422 comments

Figured, I'll mess with you.


message 43: by Greta (new)

Greta | 1459 comments

Oh yea, I did it!

<*img src="PASTE URL HERE"height="100" width="100"*>

that is the code I used, Stacie. But I changed my height and width. I just right clicked on the gif, copied the image address and pasted it in, removing the **s.

Tamika, when you do it you don't have to add in your height and width?


message 44: by Tamika♥RBF MOOD♥ (last edited Jun 08, 2016 12:40PM) (new)

Tamika♥RBF MOOD♥ | 1422 comments Nope no height or width with mine.

In fact thanks, I was doing it now.

Tamika♥RBF MOOD♥ | 1422 comments Of course remove stars.


message 46: by Greta (new)

Greta | 1459 comments Oh thanks! I will try it with that code since it's simpler. I think I have posted one Gif before this and I was doing it in such a roundabout way. This will make it so much easier...

I usually just type what I want in google. like happy gif and it comes up with images.

Or you can go to giphy.com

It's website dedicated to gifs. They have plenty, when you find one, click on it then advance. Use the link for gif download and it's a easier link. Much quicker.


Tamika♥RBF MOOD♥ | 1422 comments Look at your code again Stacie, and see what's wrong.

Louise | 2304 comments Hi Everyone, I finally made it with a little help
