considering incorporating my dog into my reveal somehow to provide maximum drama, open to suggestions
Is he/she good at fetching? You could take a video of your dog bringing you back a frisbee/ball with the law school's name on it lol. Or just a cute picture of him/her wearing some sort of merch
+1 almost got my dogs Duke bowties. :lol:
omg my dog is always wearing bow ties -googles law school bow ties-

this is a vibe i planned to do an ig live myself
I'm doing this with a cake cutting. Not kidding
I'm obsessed with these reveals lol I shoulda done something much more dramatic
I thought my post on Instagram was extra, but these are just great :lol:

Same. All the people I'm close to have heard every detail of my decision-making already and all the other people I know maybe didn't even know I applied to law school so probably dgaf about a reveal

I've been mostly keeping it to myself/the forums tbh so with the exception of my parents/my roommate who know some of what's been happening during my cycle everyone else's tribute for being left out of it until now will be to put up with my dramatic ass reveal :lol:

I'm gonna admit my ignorance re: flairs and formatting them, but that sounds like a wonderful idea. How can we get this going?

So, there was some talk of having both TLS and LSL flair. That could be a touch complicated. I know that the flair has traditionally been increasingly ostentatious images (on the scale of the font the forums use) next to the names of the posters who have decided, based on their post count. So, for TLS flair, thresholds might be 200/500/1000, whereas we probably want half that (or less) for LSL flair. 500 post count here gets, what, four 0Ls?

As for how to do it, I'm not sure, but I suspect

Uhh if we can’t get flair for TLS posts I’m going back to Harrison Barnes land of law.

RE dramatic reveals: my dad wanted to do an espn style commitment party where I have 3 hats and choose where I’m going. I didn’t want to buy 2 hats to schools I’ll never attend.

Not sure about the most recent year(s), but for at least a three or four years after our CO2016 thread folks used the ones we used:

Image and

They're the same size as a line of text, so you can plop them in next to people's usernames in the OP, e.g.:

Stranger Image
Slippin' Jimmy Image

If you wanted to make more, the key is resizing whatever image you want to use to be 14 points tall when editing in Imgur. For length, e.g., the long one is 120 points long.

Boom, flair.

I was going to do that last year. I bought one hat and actually love it, though I don't really have ties to the school. Reapplied, hoping I'll have more options... I've only got one currently.

regarding flair, we shouldn’t have separate flair for TLS and LSL posts. Your post count from both sites should be combined for one flair

I agree... it wouldn’t be complicated to combine the post counts.
