The Rollerlocks of Love gang tag was pretty clever when we all thought we were throwing a down on his luck website owner a few bucks to cover his medical bills, but the world is poo poo and it turns out we were funding gourmet cookies and car leases.

There was a bit of noise right around when the Lowtax poo poo hit the fan about getting rid of it, but I think we got distracted. Let's get un-distracted.

I'll happily make new gang tags happen. However I'm loving awful with any kind of photo editing or image creation. If you want a crude MSPaint of a gun and a really unoriginal pun or meme I'm your man, but I also know we've got some talented people in here.

So if anyone has any ideas and wants to throw something together, this is the place to get creative. Anyone who wants their rollerlocks gangtag replaced I'll happily do it.

There aren't any hard set ones for gang tags. Use the bagel crew one I'm rocking or the current roller locks one if you want a basic guideline.

Getting rid of a gang tag is as easy as buying yourself an av. Hell, so is giving yourself a gangtag. They get given out as freebees a lot but anyone can give themselves any they want.

In this case I'm offering to blank the lowtax ones because, well, lowtax.

Yes. Plenty of people have stacked gangtags. Go check out CSPAM if you want to see a ton of that.

In non-cspam forums the soft limit is 3 gangtags as a max, because it gets loving annoying if people have a dozen of them strung out. Like, one person posting "lol" will eat up a lot of scrolling space and that's aggravating. Some people have worked around that by turning a poo poo load of them into a scrolling marquee.

There's a segment of goons that see MLP references as nothing but a thin veil for pedophilia, and will throw around accusations of it the first time they have a minor disagreement with someone with that tag.

And then they'll hopefully get banned for it and it'll be funny, but it's something to consider.

TFR has a LOOOONG history with MLP. There was a period when an anonymous benefactor was carpet bombing this place with avs. Like. . . . every single person who posted in here more than once or twice ended up with a pony av.

Apparently the dude really likes horses:









like that was one lazy GIS for "stallone and horse" I and half of those are from horse people websites talking about how Sly loves him some horse. I suspect there are some good ones to be found.

Then there is this which also came up and I'm not timg'ing because I require you all to look at it.

Especially as it's apparently a Tec-9 crossbow, or a crossbow mounted on top of the Tec-9. Either way, a Rambo-era solution to a problem that no one has ever had.

I cooked this in about 20 minutes. I don't like it that much but I feel it's moving closer to what folks want? The font isn't terribly legible; I felt like cutting it out of a 'murican flag was apropos of the project though.

Here's a second pass with a vector art flag I used for the font instead, it's a bit more legible...

I like the idea, but there are too many long words for that blocky font, and the blocky font is necessary for the flag theme to work.

At the size posted, I had trouble reading it.

Edit: looking again, I think the biggest thing making it hard to read is the canton. Because of the background and the thin, black outline of the letters, there's too little contrast, so I'm only seeing the bottom half of those first letters.

Yeah, it's a contrast issue first and foremost I think.

Maybe go with an explicitly MLP font? Like same words but with the bright pink bubble font that actual pony poo poo uses?

I also think it would just be a funny contrast between that, the words, and the serious pony and rambo image.

I found a MLP font and defiled my computer with it. It's kind of ugly but it's legible. I personally don't like it much...

I think that this one, but with the colors within the text much more desaturated, would be readable and cool.

Rather than try to put the flag in the letters, make the letters solid flag colors. Conveys the idea while remaining readable.
