It could be because of my indecisiveness, but I tried to make a NaNoWriMon and received an error message after previewing different pokémon (Lilligant, Mudkip, and Swampert). Now an error message pops up no matter which of these pokémon I choose.

Nice, I plan on doing a pokemon X randomizer, and i'll be randomizing tms with this. Thank you so much. P.S., i'm new here, so I just want to see if a Celebi appears when I do this Celebi

Ah, I see. You actually want to use the HTML code for the NaNo forums, not the BBCode. So just copy this:

<p><a href="http://thousandroads.net/fanfic/nanowrimon"><img src="http://thousandroads.net/fanfic/nanowrimon/serve?user=Neta-Barsade&id=428" alt="" /></a></p>

Then follow the steps in this post to get the image to show up in your forum signature (substituting your code above for the one in the post).

Glad it's working for you now! I'll have to investigate further into the number thing... best guess at the moment is there are some user accounts created before some major software change that can have the same name as more recently created ones (hence why there's that other Rebel Atar person), and the number was added to prevent a collision with that account. Not an easy problem to solve if that's actually what's going on, but at least I know about it now! Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Here's one example... http://nanowrimo.org/forums/appellation-station/threads/381210 My xomment is at the very bottom.

Yeah I just put in Rebel Atar or my email address. I had no idea it was adding that number.

It's working now though and I've added my mon to my forum signature. Thanks for helping.

Ooh, yeah, that most definitely is the issue. If you enter your username as either rebel-atar-1422557 or Rebel Atar 1422557 everything should work fine.

That's very strange, though; I don't know why the site is appending that number after your username. You don't type in the 1422557 when you normally go to log on? You just put in "Rebel Atar?"

No thats not me. Maybe that is whats causing the confusion.

This is my profile link http://nanowrimo.org/participants/rebel-atar-1422557

Thank you so much for the help

Hmm, is this you? Your profile says "No current novel," so if you tried to create one earlier, it looks like it didn't go through properly. Once your novel information shows up on your profile, you should be good to get your gastly.

If that's not you, toss me a link to your profile and I'll see what's up.

Hi. When I try to get a mon it tells me that I need to create a novel for this season but I've already set up my novel page on the NaNo site. I was looking for a gastly if possible. My name on the nano site is Rebel Atar

I take it you mean on the NaNoWriMo.org forums? Their signature editing interface is a little differently than most, but the images should show up just fine. I'm assuming your nanowrimon is for user rainbowsylveon, with a ralts named Laika. If that's right, here's what you need to do:

  • Go to "Forum Preferences" (in the "Conversation" menu)
  • Click the far right button above the "My Signature" text box, which has <> on it (says "Source Code" if you hover over it)
  • Copy and paste this into it:

<p><a href="http://thousandroads.net/fanfic/nanowrimon"><img src="http://thousandroads.net/fanfic/nanowrimon/serve?user=rainbowsylveon&amp;id=437" alt="" /></a></p>

  • Hit "Ok"

That should work!

I'll be adding a brief tutorial on how to do this/a code specifically for the NaNoWriMo.org forums, since I think some people are getting confused.

I can't seem to get the codes to work for my signature. I've tried both codes, and neither of them are showing up properly. This is an amazing idea, though!

How many words do you have? NaNoWriMon generally start at their lowest evolutionary stage and evolve over time. Even if you were able to generate a luxray now, it would drop back to being an egg, then a shinx once your word count got reset at the beginning of November.
