BGG > Bazaar and Lotteries > I am not trading at the moment.



The purpose is, if someone is for some reason not able to do trades at the moment, they can help head off trade requests by displaying this badge. It's something I thought would be useful in the past.

Drew, I have a request. Could you please post some or all of those badges together rather than an individual post for each if you're just showing them off? You're advancing the forums too quickly for comments to be made. Thanks!

I feel your pain, but that makes the process more confusing. If all of those badges were in a single post, what would a thumb mean? That they're all good? Plus, individual posts discourage the extremely irritating practice of quoting long posts to comment on one sentence within the post.

Well, are you just asking for general feedback or do you want thumbs. If all you're looking for is approval, may I suggest also including the poll?

It's just that most of the last page on the forum was posts of your badges with their mouseovers and it interrupted the discussion on other badges.

You can't stop the train ken. Hop on or get left behind buddy.

Unless badges are related the separate posts works for quick feedback in thumbs and responses.

I can understand posting a badge by itself once you've already been given some pointers on it and are ready for final submission feedback, but it seems a little odd to post every single badge by itself every time it's posted. I thought it would be polite to not fill an entire page with posts by one person.

But alright then... since this is the norm when suggesting numerous badges, I will change the way I post to match. I guess this is a good reason we have your REQUEST AND DESIGN FEEDBACK geeklist.

I wasn't seeking design help, per se. Those are all submissions. If there is any feedback that leads to a lot of re-working I'd move to the design thread, but those badges are all done IMO.

I actually like the movie poster better. I've seen this movie a bunch of times, but I don't even remember the baby mask in it. Or the neon B would better too imo.

Commonly, microbadges that are unrelated have gone in separate posts. The goal (as I see it) is to make feedback easy and clear.

If I have some constructive thoughts on microbadge xyz, I prefer not to have to weed through a post and cut out extraneous information on other microbadges to be clear about which image I'm commenting on.

Polls are nice, but many people still expect comments.

The other conversations aren't gone, obviously. Anyone subscribing to the thread will get to read all replies that were posted since the last viewing.

The MB's I did symbolize a lot of things... they obviously represent either a love of euro games or a love of carcassonne.... but further than that it shows your affinity of using a specific colour game piece (which I had done with two previous badges that got approved and were exactly the same except for the colour used)....

I don't think its fair that you have meeple MB's get approved when I had mine shot down... period.

that is not an attack on your MB's or you... just the mods who seem to arbitrarily decide who gets theirs approved or not. I like your microbadges! I think you should get them approved.

As per indigopotter's suggestion, I'd like to elicit feedback / thoughts about the I love my Gamer Spouse badge, to encompass all relationships.

Funny set of results really. Oh well, let's stick with
and
because they scored the highest positive scores.

Yes, I could have included various colours, but these two should suffice.

To answer Ryan's direct objection. Whilst the are meeples, they symbolise people, not the Carcassonne game pieces.

I was troubled by your post and spent some time reviewing what you were talking about since I couldn't remember. There is some method to the maddness and there is some arbitrariness.

First, the fact that anomander64 made some microbadges that contain meeples doesn't have anything to do with the discussion for your microbadges. There are dozens upon dozens of microbadges that contain meeples. His microbadges fill a different purpose using a different look than has been used before. I don't foresee his microbadges being confused with any other microbadges that I can think of.

Yes, I do agree that in your case an arbitrary decision was made. Yes, it can be discussed again. But please leave anomander64 out of it and please be kind to other users when they submit a first design. A reply to Jetpac of, "This idea was previously turned down," would be sufficient.

As I recall, your full-size meeples in various colors were turned down because there are existing microbadges that are very similar in appearance (with no disrespect to the extra effort you put into the quality of yours) and there are numerous microbadges that fill the same stated purpose.

Yes, the number of microbadges that have the same look is arbitrary. I believe the general consensus is that all microbadges should be easily distinguishable, but exceptions can be found. You can bring that up for discussion again. Final decisions are made by the microbadge admin.

Yes, the number of microbadges that fulfill the same purpose is arbitrary. I believe the consensus is that the decision is made based on foreseeable public interest in the microbadge and on the stated reasons for having different designs of the same topic. You can bring that up for discussion again. Final decisions are made by the microbadge admin.

I need some feedback here. Someone has requested Microbadge Ownership badges

These are the existing badges: mb mb mb mb mb
Unfortunately the creator of these badges hasn't responded to requests to make more, so I came up with the next batch:


My question:
What color(s) should the numbers be? They can be anything you want, but what do you think will look best?

I attempted to make the 1000 using the colors from the golden award badges like love spreader of the week and geek of the week, but I don't think it looks good:

I think a series of graduating hues, so they look consistent in a line but the colour is the distinguishing feature for each.

Agreed the 1000 needs something other than gold, perhaps something a bit different. I tried rainbow, but it just looks a mess.
