    Graph paper arts. This is for anyone who gets a charge out of XXX on fine graph paper (or not so fine) to try out new stuff. I found one of those at a smiley website, and I'm going to try it next. But first, I'll start, using the center feature in "go advanced" or "post reply" both buttons of which will get you into the multi usage area screen for making a message. Just click centering or if you have an improved technique, tell us here.

    Anyone can do this. And you will quickly see I'm an amateur, but one who has fun with graphing visual images. Now where's my graph book? (You can get these gems at an Office Depot store. They have 7 or 8 squares per inch. You can also use inexpensive graph paper available in a lot of school paper areas in dime stores and even some grocery stores.

    Have fun !

    Little Heart Using "_" and "X"


    ____XX___XX____
    ___XXXX_XXXX___
    __XXXXXXXXXXX__
    __XXXXXXXXXXX__
    ___XXXXXXXXX___
    ____XXXXXXX____
    _____XXXXX_____
    ______XXX______
    _______X_______

    Like others this will just be a test, subject to editing for (hopefully) 24 hours

    Now, using spaces only to see what if anything needs a fix:

    heart, using " " and "X":

    XXX XXX
    XXXXX XXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXX
    XXXXX
    XXX
    X



    Remember, this is only an experiment. I do not know what this message box does in the way of equal spacing for characters. It may not look like what was planned. If a bright know-how person comes along and can share some tricks of the cyber X-art trade, please do. Thanks. :)

    This time, I'll try using two dots per X and centering as in first post:

    XXX..........XXX
    XXXXX......XXXXX
    XXXXXXX..XXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXX
    XXXXX
    XXX
    X

    OK, it's a little wonky...and it enlongates due to the properties of rectangular spaces being taller than they are wide when you use the enter key.

    I'll try using the same 2 dots and not worrying about anything else except using more X's to widen it:

    XXXXXXXXX..................XXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXXXXX.............XXXXXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX........XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX....XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXX
    XXX
    X


    I have no idea... :rolleyes:

    Oh, here's something I found at this link:


    oooo$$$$$$$$$$$$oooo
    oo$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$o
    oo$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$o o$ $$ o$
    o $ oo o$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$o $$ $$ $$o$
    oo $ $ "$ o$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$o $$$o$$o$
    "$$$$$$o$ o$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$o $$$$$$$$
    $$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ """$$$
    "$$$""""$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ "$$$
    $$$ o$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ "$$$o
    o$$" $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ $$$o
    $$$ $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$" "$$$$$$ooooo$$$$o
    o$$$oooo$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ o$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
    $$$$$$$$"$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ $$$$""""""""
    """" $$$$ "$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$" o$$$
    "$$$o """$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$"$$" $$$
    $$$o "$$""$$$$$$"""" o$$$
    $$$$o o$$$"
    "$$$$o o$$$$$$o"$$$$o o$$$$
    "$$$$$oo ""$$$$o$$$$$o o$$$$""
    ""$$$$$oooo "$$$o$$$$$$$$$"""
    ""$$$$$$$oo $$$$$$$$$$
    """"$$$$$$$$$$$
    $$$$$$$$$$$$
    $$$$$$$$$$"
    "$$$""""

    It looks terrible in the box, but I am leaving it as is to show either they just look funny in the message box, or things don't always turn out like you plan them, or (3) they do.

    lol. Go to the link. It's a cute smiley there, thumb in ears, as in "nah-nahing" the world. Some can get away with using spaces, apparently we can't, and figuring dots can be tricky as you can see from the good and the bad above. Oh, well. :D

    XXXXX.........XXXXX.........XXXXX.........XXXXX
    .........XXXXX.........XXXXX.........XXXXX.........
    .........XXXXX.........XXXXX.........XXXXX.........

    The problem is... trying to get a perfectly square outcome.

    In addition to a small mistakey, that still seems oblong, although 5 and 9 seems to make things right going east to west. I wonder if the X and L characters are the same width. Then I could concentrate on north and south...

    blah, blah, blah. Don't mind me. I'm experimenting. :D

    Oops, I just saw something. Maybe making 4 repetitions row-wise would work.

    OK, keeping the 5 "X" and 9 "." horizontally, here goes the next trial-and-error method try:

    First set of blocks will have: XXXXX.........XXXXX..........XXXXX.........XXXXX

    Second set of blocks will have: .........XXXXX.........XXXXX..........XXXXX.........

    XXXXX.........XXXXX..........XXXXX.........XXXXX
    XXXXX.........XXXXX..........XXXXX.........XXXXX
    XXXXX.........XXXXX..........XXXXX.........XXXXX
    XXXXX.........XXXXX..........XXXXX.........XXXXX
    .........XXXXX.........XXXXX..........XXXXX.........
    .........XXXXX.........XXXXX..........XXXXX.........
    .........XXXXX.........XXXXX..........XXXXX.........
    .........XXXXX.........XXXXX..........XXXXX.........
    XXXXX.........XXXXX..........XXXXX.........XXXXX
    XXXXX.........XXXXX..........XXXXX.........XXXXX
    XXXXX.........XXXXX..........XXXXX.........XXXXX
    XXXXX.........XXXXX..........XXXXX.........XXXXX
    .........XXXXX.........XXXXX..........XXXXX.........
    .........XXXXX.........XXXXX..........XXXXX.........
    .........XXXXX.........XXXXX..........XXXXX.........
    .........XXXXX.........XXXXX..........XXXXX.........
    XXXXX.........XXXXX..........XXXXX.........XXXXX
    XXXXX.........XXXXX..........XXXXX.........XXXXX
    XXXXX.........XXXXX..........XXXXX.........XXXXX
    XXXXX.........XXXXX..........XXXXX.........XXXXX

    I still feel like I'm soooooooooo not there...

    The little .. .. dot missing bit on the last row is showing up on my monitor after posting, and it is not showing up in the message box. Anomaly? eeeew. I really don't know.

    I didn't notice any spacey dots when I was centering. Maybe I'll try centering the thing.
