e: if you want the black background all the way around, instead of the offset edge:



It's also worth noting that other one's the same color scheme as AI, which is right above DIY now.

This made me want to try this. It's not even that I think I can do better, just felt like it. I stole Adiabatic's letters to do this, and the image for Goon Meets to give it that sort of congruence that some of the icons have.

or

It's a bit similar to some of the others tags, though. But I do like the idea of the 'dot' being a screw.

I like the cracked wood grain. Is it possible to change the font to a stencil? Probably too complex for low res.

This one, but with the screw head of this:

There's a lot of dark/brown icons around this forum on the main listing, so a less dark and less brown one is probably a good idea.

Maybe but at 11 x 11 pixels, I can't draw a hexagon that looks good, especially with GIMP. Also, I don't think we can make it bigger either because we probably want that one pixel buffer.


I think the stencil really makes it.

This was just for fun, obviously no one wants a strobing animation on the page. Also I learned the order of layers to create a gif because my first attempt was this:

You know, that thing falling off then getting put back on slowly would actually look pretty good.

edit: but don't bother if no one is ever going to use it
