Share your "Paint Nite" artworks and hang out with fellow "Paint Nite" addicts around the world.

I have got a friend on facebook, that is a "Paint Nite" addict.
She keeps sharing her "Paint Nite" artworks on facebook which I enjoy a lot.
And she got another friend to join too.
So I thought maybe if you want to share your "Paint Nite" art works with others you can join a forum to do that.  I searched for it but i don't see a forum dedicated to "Paint Nite" artworks.
But there could be a place for that.
You can join a forum on gimp learn forums.

The forum is called "The Arts" which right now include all kinds of art (mostly GIMP related) because we're a new site.
But if we get more "Paint Nite" people to share their work.  I'll put all the "Paint Nite" ones into a sub-forum under "The Arts". (EDIT: I just made a sub-forum called "Paint Nite" for now if anyone wants to share they can, it's a brand new like a week old so we haven't had anyone submit yet, hopefully that'll happen soon).
And it will be "GREAT!".
Go "Paint Nite".

If you have arts that you'd like to share on our GIMP LEARN forum

you can share it in a sub forum called  The Arts on GIMP LEARN forum
We recommend you share your arts created in GIMP.
But we don't like to exclude people.
If you did it in Photoshop, you're welcomed to share it there too, just mention that it was done in Photoshop so people know.

A forum where GIMP users can hopefully learn from and share with each other.

I would like a place where i can share my GIMP scripts/plug-ins quickly.
I like how friendly the phpBB default forum is.
It took like 5 minutes to set up on HostPapa.
So here it is.
http://bakon.ca/gimplearn/index.php
it's just a subfolder of my main site, my main site was hand made by me so it's not as cool as this /gimplearn/ subfolder forum.
I think i'll be posting my script/plug-ins on here as well as share them on gimpchat.com

Trying to write a G'Mic plug-in on Windows.

So I have G'Mic 1.7.5 installed. (1.7.1 which i had earlier didn't seem to want to read from user.gmic file).
And I have a file named user.gmic in my %AppData% folder
which is when I type echo %AppData% in command prompt
it shows C:\Users\Tin Tran\AppData\Roaming

And I am trying to write a simple plug in that allows multiple threshold to be selected at the same time.
The idea is this I have multiple thresholds, stack on top of each other, and then for each layer I delete the white area produce by threshold call and change the black area to a different color.
So far i got threshold to work .... still investigating on how to get it to cut away white or make it transparent so other thresholds would show through and replacing the color... and final step would be to produce a preview that shows the merged results of these layers.
This is what i have so far. (in the user.gmic file)

#@gmic
#@gimp .{development filters}

#@gimp Multi Thresholds : multi_threshold, multi_threshold
#@gimp : Threshold_1 = int(20,1,256)
#@gimp : Threshold_2 = int(40,1,256)
#@gimp : Threshold_3 = int(60,1,256)
multi_threshold :
 --luminance[0] -threshold[-1] $1 -normalize[-1] 0,255 -to_colormode[-1] 4 -if {R==255} A=0 -endif
 --luminance[0] -threshold[-1] $2 -normalize[-1] 0,255 -to_colormode[-1] 4
    -luminance[0] -threshold[0] $3 -normalize[0] 0,255 -to_colormode[0] 4
 

#@gimp _
The if at the end on the first line of command is just me try to get at the pixel data's Red value and see if it's white 255 and set the Alpha to 0 to make it full transparent so far no luck with this.
