This is the preferred option.

you do this, please restrict the size of each
individual email posting. Anything too big
will be deleted by my e-mail service, and I will

Questions: (please consult before
Q: What is TWIGG?
A: TWIGG is short for Twisted, Weird,
Imaginative Gaming Gallery. TWIGG is devoted to creating
funny and/or strange pictures of video game characters,
old and new alike.
Q: Who is the webmaster of
A: I'm Toadmon. I love Photoshoping video game
characters, so I have a lot of pictures posted in my
Q: Who was TWIGG's original
A: A guy called Gamefox. He ran the site from
Spring 2000 - June 29, 2001, until giving it up in favor
of other projects. Not wanting to let the site die, the
staff of Nintendo All-Stars Homeworld, TWIGG's sister
site, took over for Gamefox, and integrated the site into
NASHW. Gamefox's submissions can still be seen throughout
Q: What is some background on
A: Before creating TWIGG, Gamefox ran a
Nintendo 64 fansite called Area 64, which featured
reviews and previews of Nintendo 64 games. Area 64
launched in early 1999. Later, in Spring 2000, Gamefox
changed Area 64's format into a game photoshopping
gallery, where fans could submit their photoshopped
screenshots/game-related pictures, and they would be
posted on the site's galleries. The site's name was
changed to TWIGG in Summer 2000, and joined forces with
NASHW as sister sites, until it was turned over to
Toadmon and integrated into NASHW.
Q: Can I link to your site?
A: Of course! On the net, you can link to anyone
Q: Where did you get the idea
for this page?
A: Gamefox loved going to this awesome site called,
can't do that on Star Trek." And I was wishing
there was a site like it but all about video game
characters. So it hit me to just start my own page on it.
Now it's getting to be a large site, and it's all thanks
Q: Why do you have so many
A: Gamefox felt that Pokémon are a little too
cute for their own good, and sometimes wanted to make
some pictures of Pokémon just because they deserve it.
Since then, making Pokémon pictures has become a popular
theme on TWIGG. You don't have to make Pokémon pictures,
Gamefox (and RedLink) just like to make them.
Q: How can I create images
A: If you have a program like Paintshop Pro or
Adobe Photoshop, such images can be made quite easily. If
you do not have such a program, click here
to download Paintshop, which I used to create almost all
of my pictures. I cannot give a comprehensive tutorial on
image editing, but I will tell you that the most
important tools are the lasso and the clone brush. To
find a video game image you wish to butcher, there are
tons of image archives across the net. A good starting
place is the search engine here.
Q: Is there a limit to the
number of pictures I can submit?
A: No. You may submit as many pictures as you
want to TWIGG, as long as the meet the submission
Q: Can more than one person
recieve credit for a picture?
A: Yes. I will credit a picture to more than
one person upon request, as long as you keep the number
of names to a reasonable limit. All names will be added
to the hall of fame.
Q: Can I create a TWIGG
picture from a game off any system?
A: Yes. At TWIGG, we accept pictures of games
from any system, from the Atari 2600 to the XBox. If you
can get a screenshot and photoshop the picture, we can
post it. You've probably noticed that most of the
pictures at TWIGG are from Nintendo, Sony, and Sega
consoles, but that's mainly because those consoles are
more widely known, and easier to get screenshots from.
Q: Who makes the captions for
A: Many captions were made by either Gamefox
or myself. In several cases, the captions were written by
the person who made the picture, as detailed below.
Others have had captions written by winners of the
Picture of the Month contest.
Q: If I send you a picture,
can I suggest a caption along with it?
A: Yes. If you send a picture, and have a
caption that you want to add to it, you may suggest that
as well. However, due to content, size, or other reasons,
I will not neccessarily use a caption. I may also change
the caption later if needed. Also remember that all
pictures are subject to the picture of the month contest,
in which case the current caption for a selected picture
will be changed. If you are a winner of the picture of
the month contest, I will not change a winning caption
unless it is absolutely necessary.
Q: Can more than one person
recieve credit for a caption?
A: Yes. As with picture submissions, more than one person
may recieve credit for a caption if the number of names
is kept to a reasonable limit. Be sure to notify me,
either via the contest submission page or e-mail, that
you want more than one person to recieve credit for the
Q: How do you select the
picture of the month?
A: I usually will ask a random person to
suggest the picture of the month. Occassionally, I do it
myself. If you want to suggest a future picture of the
month, e-mail me.
