Don't let it get you down, people can comment on it here too :)

Human kind cannot gain anything without first giving up something in return.

First, Botchii doesn't delete walls, Mods do; Botchii is just the program that leaves the automated message. Second, having older walls deleted isn't strange, especially now that the Mods are going through the entire gallery to get the Elite Gallery going.

What you probably got docked off for are the screenshots, which are considered low quality and a low effort way to fill space.

Hope this helps. :)

I'd suggest taking the screen shot second from the right, blowing it up and using it as a "ghosted" background on the right keeping the words and the border/line.

Do not interfere in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and good with ketchup.

I have to disagree with Mnemeth. As I said before, screenshots are considered low quality and effort. "Ghosted" backgrounds only compound those problems.

only time a ghosted background works well is with vectors really. you have this great vector and what people normally do is ghost say just the head of the character in the background to show you alittle closer to the detail that was put in it. I have tried ghosting a few times but only works with standard walls when adding effects and so forth over it only then showing one aspect of it. and to blow one of them images up on that wall would make it look extremly cheap as the image would be pixleated and distorted.

Okays, now i get it...i thought it was bcos of licensing problems thats why screenshots are discouraged...haha, its the opposite actually. Using Screenshot is a "cheap" way of filling up spaced..gomen! I try not to use this method anymore.

Have to disagree with twistedfreak too. Ghosting is almost always a messy and "cheap" way to fill space. Wallers who have gotten to vectoring have usually also grown out of ghosting.
