Most of the journals will log the big updates and feelings of the times. I plan to look back on these in the future. Some large change affecting our lives now usually often turns into something we rarely think about.
Old Profile Code
I've just changed my profile for the first time in years. I've disliked it for.. years but hadn't taken the time to sit and fool with it. Made this new one pretty quickly. :} Love those profile guides.
Also, for the record, even though the spoiler tag has been around for a few months now, this is my first time using it. Love this too. n .n

Old Profile Code
/*Hi there. ;D */
/* BG for all "bubbles" */
.panel
{ border: 3px ridge #4E8975; background: #E8ADAA }

/* Main BG */
html, body {background: #C48189; repeat ;}

/* Color of small headers for each box */
.panel h2{background: #4E8975;}

/* Comments text color */
#id_comments dd {color: #4E8975; font-size: 11px;}

/* The font color of text in the boxes */
#id_journal, #id_comments dt {color: #617C58; font-size: 11px;}

/* Scroll bars */
#id_comments {overflow: auto; overflow-x: hidden; overflow-y: hidden; height: 600px;}
#id_comments dl {overflow-y: auto; padding-right: 500px; height: 500px; width: 190px;}
#id_wishlist
{overflow: scroll; overflow-x: hidden; overflow-y: auto; height: 400px;}
#id_footprints
{overflow: scroll; overflow-x: hidden; overflow-y: auto; height: 80px;}

#id_wishlist .item:hover{opacity:1; filter:alpha(opacity='100')}


The new profile code
/* Main bg image*/
html,body{background:url(http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y278/WinkNod/Art/10__Comm___cma021_by_seisei.jpg)}

/* This allows panels to hover over bg*/
html,body {background-attachment: fixed;}

/* This stops the bg image from repeating */
html,body {background-repeat: no-repeat; }


/* Not sure here, but this rounds the corners */
/*Online/Offline*/
.panel{ border-radius: 30px; -moz-border-radius: 30px; -o-border-radius: 30px; -webkit-border-radius: 30px;}
/*Panel Headers*/
.panel h2{display:none}

/*Panel bg color*/
.panel { background: #FFCC33 }

/* Scroll bars and panel height */
/* Note to self, stop trying to hide the wishlist scroll bar. I've seen it done once, but can't reproduce it */
#id_comments {overflow: auto; overflow-x: hidden; overflow-y: hidden; height: 100px;}
#id_comments dl {overflow-y: auto; padding-right: 500px; height: 500px; width: 190px;}
#id_wishlist
{overflow: scroll; overflow-x: hidden; overflow-y: auto; height: 100px;}
#id_footprints
{overflow: scroll; overflow-x: hidden; overflow-y: auto; height: 80px;}

/* selector { color: value; }*/

#id_about { background: #CC0066;}
#id_journal { background: #CC0066;}
#id_footprints { background: #CC0066;}


I also plan to change my "about me" info. Here's the old one for the record. I've had it forever and have just tweaked the wording here and there. I hope to shorten it.
★ My username is sdrawkcab. Refer to me by any variation of my username that you'd like. I usually go by Cabbi.

★ sdrawkcab is the word "backwards" spelled backwards.
            sdrawkcab | backwards
So, no, a cat didn't choose my username for me. ;3

★ Your English lesson for the day: Backward or Backwards?
As an adverb, either word will do: "put the shirt on backward" or "put the shirt on backwards." However, as an adjective, only "backward" will do: "a backward glance." When in doubt, use "backward."

★ I joined Gaia in March of 2004 and have been hanging around ever since. Because of this, I tell lots of "back in the day" stories. I'm not some cranky oldbie character and I don't judge by join date. I'm just interested in the evolution of this website.

★ Mandatory sentence: "I love to customize my avatar, not dress up."
I've had that line in my "about me" info ever since "customizing" changed to dressing up... not that I really care anymore. XD; I mean, it's nowhere near as childish as the new "get nekkid" button. :B
That's okay, I still like Gaia's humor.
I also love to change my avatar whenever I get the spare time. I also love to see the avatar creations that other people come up with. I like most of the different types of avatar styles.

★ I'm horrible at keeping up with threads, PMs and profile comments. I have no excuse; I'm just bad at it. (And I used to be good at it. u .u;; ) Please don't be insulted if I take awhile to reply. ...and if it's taking a tad longer than awhile, feel free to nudge me.

★ I love this site, but real life always comes first. Thus, I don't have as much time for Gaia as I used to. I still log in rather frequently though.

★ It should be obvious by now, but I say very little about my personal life (in other words, the irl portion). You're not missing out.
I don't give my info; I don't ask for your info. Fair trade. I do, somehow, find a lot to talk about when concerning Gaia-related things. :}



This guide is pretty thorough. :3

Needed this old guide to use in tandem because it was easier to understand. XD; (Has a nice quick list of selectors)

This change is so much brighter then your last design @.@ then again you were following the colors from the art XD Darn Sei Sei and her love of those crazy colors.It looks good. You don't have a close up of your avatar though... do you think that will effect you?

Indeed it is bright. o: I only had shape, not colors, in mind when I started. I just wanted a more minimalistic profile. I went to my photobucket with different artwork in mind, saw the seisei one and just had to use it. o wo It's so happy!
I tend to go in cycles with profiles. I keep bright for a while, go dimmer, go bright again, go dimmer... The last profile I had was a remnant of my seisei artwork profile. It originally got the fade feature when I wanted to tone down the bright colors (and then eventually just turned it all beige). XD So I know this one will eventually go dimmer also. n .n I'll just throw in a more muted bg artwork.

o: It's funny you ask about the giant magnification of my avi that's not there anymore. I hadn't really used it since I got the Gaia app. I can zoom into my avatar from my profile on the app. So, not having it on my Gaia profile won't really affect me since I have a bad habit of loading the Gaia app to look at my avatar when I have nothing else to do. XD;
