HOW TO ADD PLZ GRAPHICS TO 27d:
Go to the relevant library page. Add your PLZ graphics in comments there.
PLZ can be in multiple categories. For instance, an animated smile would be in Emoticons; Animated; and Smileys.
For gallery pages, add your art to the relevant category. The Featured Gallery Folder is off limits.
For Favorites, add your art to favorites at will.
Large collections may warrant new library pages. Please let us know if you want Contributor status to use the 27d Admin Area for collecting and cooperating on large PLZ collections.
EDITING LARGE PLZ ARCHIVES:
I use Gmail to quickly organize PLZ graphics archives.
It's in Gmail Settings->Labs->Inserting Images
You can drag images into an email, rearrange them and copy them back into a DA comment or journal.
WHY COMMENTS ARE HIDDEN
Comments are hidden when 27d administrators harvest graphics from them. This communicates that the collection has been updated.

-Follow-up with a short public reply if spamming continues.
-hide comments which are considered spam or inappropriate conduct.
-Spammers will be reported to the Help Desk and may have their IP addresses banned by a moderator with priveleges.
