Those of us who like DIY and PNP games need a microbadge to express that hobby. Consider this the petition. Consider any comments the signatures.

Who's with me?

A rotating blade, definitely. That tool has made the biggest difference in the quality of my projects.

I think a pair of scissors is most recognisable on a 16x16 pixel scale:

O.K. plenty of votes, now let's design (and discuss) OUR badge. I suggested a pair of scissors:
. Any other ideas?

See, my thing is that I rarely use scissors OR a glue stick in my projects. But I guess that's one of the more recognizable icons at that size.

*sigh*

OK, my vote is for the scissors.

I never use a glue stick. On very rare occasions I use spray glue. However, I always use scissors, because cutting out components with a good (!) pair of scissors takes less than one third of the time it would take with a knife. I wouldn't recommend cutting out 200+ counters with a knife.

A printer? No, a laminator! No, wait, is it a plotter?

I don't have a clue what that is. It might be a printer (which would be very appropriate), but it's not easy to recognise. We could of course ask Aldie to make more than one DIY microbadge available. There are 20 (or close to that) Magic Realm microbadges, so two or three DIY/PNP microbadges shouldn't be a problem.

It's SUPPOSED to be a printer...the reason I put it that way is that it didn't come out very well. I guess a printer needs a 32x icon to be recognizeable. You're welcome to that one, or if someone does it better, use another. I like the scissors, too- very iconical.

I REALLY want to encourage the PNP end of the hobby!!!

Now we have three:







I don't like the green background behind the scissors & glue, but I still prefer the scissors (I like simple designs) anyway.
