Is there supposed to be hover text? Otherwise, it looks cool to me.

I don't have software which will do transparency. As for hover text, that could probably be the same as the name - "Tobago fan".

Re: Microbadges are Back!! (Post new Microbadges Here)

"I hate texting abbreviation"

Hover text - "No texting abbreviations - spell it properly!"

This is a pet peeve of my wife (PhD in English from Cambridge University AND OCD). It's meant to be "GR8" in a red strike-through circle, indicating it's not allowed.

Looks good, and I agree with the sentiment, but the hover text isn't showing.

I've just read up on the new process (sorry for not doing it earlier).

I don't have access to software which will do transparent backgrounds. Can anyone help? Either by cleaning up the Tobago and Texting badges for me, or showing me how to do it myself?

Gimp and Paint.net are both free and can handle transparency.

The hover text isn't showing because he's linking to the image in his user gallery rather than using the microbadge code. Perhaps they haven't been loaded in the system?

That's right. Sorry - I plunged in without reading the new system and got it wrong. I'll try to sort out tyhe transparency thing and do it properly.

No heart there, just a sore thumb. You may be thinking of the Love-spreader badge I did?
I'm going to let paperfred take that one.

Is this for collectors of small games? Or small collections of games fan?


I had a feeling the wording of this one could be ambiguous. The intent is: fans of collections consisting of few games. I will edit to convey this.
