PostCount Images/Badges/New Names
« on: March 28, 2010, 05:12:54 PM »
Hi Folks

To go with the badges recently made for MKA by Shortie I am now looking at Postcount images such as the one attached.

px size is 128 x 40 which was the size of the badges mentioned above.

The theme I use is curvemavi

As MKAware is a community forum I was thinking of images/ badges along the lines of what you would find in a community. However let's see what ya come up with.

Rules: Hey my topic so my rules.   :D

No bright colours.

Family theme please due to family orientated forum.

In png or gif format preferably.

In regards to the attached I think it would look better with a black border.

Postcounts at present are: Newbie,  Jnr Member, Full Member, Snr Member, Hero Member so if you want to replace the names with a better one ( am keeping Newbie) please do so.

First thing

Keep them png

Once you have decided on a style and design I can show you a way to convert png to Gif for the web with out losing ant quality and keep a full 255 Alpha channel  :D:D

PS. can we keep them to 120x40 as it keeps the aspect ration nice

The bad news is that a new membergroup has been made.

Doing the text and stuff is not an issue getting the design right is the key

So if you have time we can bounce a few ideas about

One thing if you are prepared to shorten the title a little say Technician to Techie then that opens up a lot more possibilities

Found a colour for the tech badge.

It is an orange red hex number #FF4500

For one of the post count badges I thought of #B800000
I used a html cheatsheet app on the itouch  :)


Message to Shortie and staff:

Look at www.mkaware.co.uk in the copyright area.

Many thanks If you prefer you could just create a topic / sticky outlining where they came from and a link to here

That way it will reduce your footer - as we are all here to have fun and if we can help people all the better :D:D

I shoulda said the copyright area above the smf copyright is the custom copyright mod.

I have been unable to think of alternative postcount group names.

Any ideas?

Looking good Shortie.

The red is out tho due to the admins being red.

The light blue we have already.

The grey, black, pink and yellow are favourites and will be tested sometime today.
