The world map is run by dA so it incorporates everyone using the site. There's so many people doing so many things that your activity isn't going to be noticeable on there.

You're welcome. I update it whenever I find something new that's really great.

Because you've been so awesome (and even donated a point) I can create some profile code for you if you wish.

Cool! Keep up the good work ;w;

Hm? Profile code, eh? I'm sorry for asking, but what's a profile code for? ;-; I'm a bit of a noob at some stuff...
Reply
:iconcoolkaius:
CoolKaius Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Code is the fancy computer language that (in this case on dA) decides how your profile looks.
Like when you edit a widget on your profile and you see all that weird text, that's code.
If you're still confused and I can send an example of what it looks like.

If you can describe to me what you want me to make in HTML I can do my best to help you out.
I guess you can describe it by drawing it or typing it. You can also send me stuff you want me to include in your profile using pastebin.com/ You don't have to have an account to use it.

Thanks for mentioning #ThumbHub and SuperdAmn, but I'm not the creator of SuperdAmn. I just help maintain it alongside Pickley. The real creator was electricnet, among other people who submitted code or ideas.

It's great for anyone who wants to make stamps, but doesn't know how.

But the list itself was mostly stuff I had already saved. Thanks for the comment. ^u^
