If anyone wants to make any tweaks or improvements now's the time. When you're happy with the final version see if you can shrink them down to max 180px on any side, and max 150KB, approx, as those are the limits on avatars which while we don't strictly need to adhere to but it's not a bad rule of thumb.

Once they're posted I'll get them uploaded. Please let me know which tag(s) you all personally want and I'll get them done for you. Note that it's effectively just an avatar text change, so I'm limited to the max text size of 300 characters, including URLs.

If anyone really wants to use an image that didn't win, I'd be OK helping you out with that if it's in a category with no winner, but I don't think we should have two floating about for the same category.

I've been sick so I got behind on the thread but I shrunk this down a tad:
180x38 82KB

If I'm thinking of updating my avatar should I do that before gang tags or does it not matter??

It shouldn't matter, but when I inquired about this whole process an admin recommended people update their avatars first.

Basically, the "gang tag" part of this is just the text below your avatar, even though they're images, so if you went to change your main avatar afterwards, you'd just keep the text the same or tweak it or whatever.

I took the liberty. Hope that's ok.

I messed with scale a bit and it looks ok down to about 70% size, but it starts to get messy. Handily, full size is 179 pixels on the longest side.

Edit: god drat it it didn't attach

Edit 2: I'm glad it didn't because I missed that there was also an extra pixel of bevel or whatever you wanna call it on the left.


Looks good, I'll take one.

That's me too. I lurk, but have no pretensions to being an even marginally competent DIY-er at the level of stuff that gets discussed there.

Same for StudFinders, even though I designed it. I can hang things on walls, but nuffin beyond that.

If you fancy you could make a shorter version, that would be fine. Rule of thumb seems that 180px height is acceptable for all tags and text combined, so using that one as-is would eat up all the "reasonable" space, leaving no room for your inferior designers tag. Effectively it's OK to double up the normal avatar height but going further than that might be considered taking the piss.

Do what you feel and feel what you do. No one is going to question if you're "good enough" to have the tag!

Wasabi we're gonna have to modify your existing tags to fit this in. What would you like removed / rearranged?

Jaded Burnout
Jul 10, 2004




OK I've submitted requests for everyone that asked. Please let me know if a few days go by and nothing happens, or if something happens and it's wrong. A couple of you have what I assume are very old HTML titles rather than bbcode ones and I don't entirely know if they'll gently caress up.

If anyone wants to join a gang in the future, you can add tags through the normal avatar purchase system by adding one or more of these (with the img tags) as text in your title. As always, don't take the piss, or a mod/admin may take unilateral corrective action.
