Wanted to make a Microbadge for my favorite game, Cosmic Encounter. Posting for peer review:

 


It's supposed to be the Negotiate card, has the same pointy N symbol from the card and a mock-up bright green border to make it more obvious what it is (the Negotiate card in FFG's version of Cosmic Encounter has green border)

I want the mouseover text to say something like "Cosmic Encounter - Colony for a Colony?"

Thanks for any feedback

how do you like it?

One thing to note is that the edges look pixelated and there are various ways to decrease this effect. I like to delete the background and add transparency before resizing. Alternately, here are two methods (one simple and one more complex) documented by one of the Masterbadgers...

Good tip! I added some half pixels for anti-aliasing, and I think it works a charm:

also i finally decided for png instead of gif...

A question.

I see that several persons skip polls altogether when submitting badges. Is this ok in which case I'll skip the polls as well in the future.

Smart way of doing things as your proposals can never get voted down.

I don't always use polls either... Depends on the mood I'm in, I guess
But I trust people will tell me when my badges suck. Oh, and receiving no thumbs is also a sign there's something wrong.
And in that case I start tweaking my designs.

Politically correct answer: don't do like me. Use a poll.

Did you read the instructions in the first page:

cscottk wrote:

The new process will be as follows:

1. Search the current microbadges and make sure you are not duplicating an already existing badge.
2. Create your badge. The badge must have a TRANSPARENT background.
3. Upload the badge using the tool (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/microbadge/create), and in the Admin notes, post a link to where you posted your badge in this thread for community discussion.
4. After a period of time (a week or so depending on the amount of discussion), the badge should be approved. Your peers will be driving this process. Not me. I am just a gatekeeper.

Like all things on BGG, this is an evolving process. Please bear with me as we try to streamline this as we go along. I fully expect the first month or two after the re-emergence of badges to be swamped with new ones. We have been without new microbadges for a long time, and folks are suffering withdrawal symptoms. Remember, I am only one person, so the initial backlog may be long. So be patient.

Back to some basics. Here are the current rules to microbadges:

• First, if you do not recall, here is the link to microbadge basics: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/wiki/page/Microbadge
• Before creating a new badge, please make sure it is not already in the system.
• As usual, microbadges should be appropriate for the site.
• Please make sure you are happy with your badge before you upload it. I can fix badges later, but it is a manual process.
• Have fun and be nice to each other.

I read them. I know polls are not mandatory but I though that not using them was frowned upon. Seems not seeing that some prominent mb designers never use them.

I'll stop using them as well now especially as I seem to have a "No" stalker.

The majority of people here don't use polls. I prefer them as they are a quick and easy gauge of what people think, but they are not required. I read the thread and comments people make about the badges.

Not required, and if there are no comments (yay or any), it will ultimately be up to me. You are not guaranteed to get one in that way.

I usually do a poll, especially if I get only a couple thumbs and/or I'm not happy with the design myself and want feedback, but if I get a decent number of thumbs, no criticism, and I'm happy with it. I'll drop it in the queue.

IMHO, lack of criticism is implied approval. If you think a badge of mine should be worked on more, tell me what you think the problem is when it gets posted. I, for one, will always post a poll if there has been any criticism of a badge I'm working on.
