Hi all,

New local group would like a Microbadge, please be kind we dont get out much.

Rob RN.

Good looking badge you've got there. Some suggestions:

First, you could use some transparency on the outside of the circle.
Second, darken the letters so you can see what they are. Yellow almost never comes out well on light-colored backgrounds. The red and green could be a little darker too.


I only have MS Paint, how do you make the background transparent?
Made the other changers and it looks good. thanks for the feed back.


 


Revamped Badge using GIMP Let me know what everyone thinks

It's a little difficult to see. What are the letters? C B G? and what are the blue/grey symbols?

It's also 17x17. It needs to be 16x16.

Yours is slightly smoother. The M is a bit broader than in the original logo, but not so much that it matters.

I'm just interested in having it, not being the creator, so I don't mind either way.

Polls seem to be disabled (?) but what does everyone else say? Is this

acceptable (thumb if yes).

i think the calibers are just too much in my opinion. As would be adding not every motorcycle or car brand, but also tyre-size badges...
It's more like types of cars than tire sizes. A 9mm is like a sports car, whereas a .45 is like a muscle car, for instance. Caliber is probably more important than brand to most people. A guy who loves his Kimber .45 would probably take a Springfield .45 over a Kimber 9mm.


Proably a motor fan could argue something similar about the tires My opinion remain, i think the amount of gun-related badges, including designers, calibers, manufacturers, and specific weapons is too much (or it can soon be) in amount and detais for a game-related web. Although in not a gun-fan, i think my opinion would be the same for cars, of coffe fans (no place for different brands, blends, origins, and size of mugs, for ejample)

For some reason the poll icon doesn't show up if you do a quick reply/quote. You can hit preview to get the button, or you can open a non-quick reply/quote in another tab, make the poll, then copy and paste it back into your quick reply/quote.

I thought anomander64's design was sufficient, so I was surprised to see you have another go from scratch. I think they're both pretty good at this point: just check for symmetry and noise before submitting like garion mentioned.

You need to download and use software for image editing. GIMP is a popular choice, but there are others.

Much better.

Perhaps you could make the letters a bit more visible. Like this for example:


A bit too fuzzy now, but something in between should work.

I still think the letters really need to be darker. The current size and shape is good, but the letters are not distinct enough.

Your person looks a little top heavy. I think it could benefit from some semi-transparent pixels.

I'm having my child in hospital these days. We're having a good service and would like to give a "geek thank you" to the pediatric specialists.

I've searched for a "Thank you Children's Hospital!" MB but there's none. As I can't really draw a straight line, maybe some agile hand could draw the MB for me? I think this is the place to ask. I don't know how this works, who 'owns' the MB or if it has to be bought like other MB, etc.

Thanks.

Ok Letters alittle darker, man alittle lighter and I think thats it.
I couldnt work out how to do semi-transparent pixels so lighter was a option

I hadn't, I just relinked anomander's creation, so it didn't just show up in the quote (I hadn't seen it before, and I can't see any earlier post from him with that version.

Trying again, then, as I believe I need to link to a post when it's obvious that it gets some sort of approval (no thumbs or comments from the earlier ones).

Note that there's still one more black pixel at the bottom than at the top, and the badge is not centred on the circle. If these are not problems, go ahead and submit.

That's a different flavor than most requests. "Thank you Children's Hospital" seems like it may be more apropos on an ÜberGeekBadge or an avatar. More common flavors on microbadges are akin to "Children's Hospital supporter" or "Children's Hospital user". Not that it can't be done. I suggest posting a GeekItem on Microbadge Request & Design Feedback Geeklist (permanently offline) and ask for help and some ideas. Making a request here is perfectly fine, yet sometimes requests in this thread get lost or overlooked.
