Yes, I know, and so is this: mb

(While we're talking BGG Down, I had some small doubts about taking the Ernie screen, the most direct graphic representation of BGG being down, and using it for a badge whose subject is essentially the same as mb. It could be argued that that's the image that had been used for the first badge if it had existed at the time, but as it is, it feels a little like a missed opportunity to represent some other and perhaps more fundamental/neutral/humorous aspect of BGG downity.)

Edit: Found the Launchpad badges. Posted a little over a year ago and apparently never finalized.

Btw, this is not about about a BGG outage. It is about the ratings outage. The "Great" part is there to provide humour. I feel like I had to explain that. shake I picked that category because I thought it was the most relevant. If someone feels like it should be in a different category, please let me know.

For example, should it be here?

Thats a funny one!
You should make it the same color as the respective patron badge, so that you can make one for each year we had/have a big outage.

Microbadge peer review: HammerCon Attendee
Trying this MB again, with a few changes.

FYI HammerCon is a yearly gaming con in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. HammerCon IV was in November 2012; HammerCon V will be in November 2013.

I think I like the Roman numerals better:


But I also did some with Arabic numerals:


Overtext is "I was at the first HammerCon" for
or
, and "I was at HammerCon N" (where N is replaced by the appropriate Roman or Arabic numeral) for the others.

What do you think?

Sorry, no.

I agree that we don't need a badge for this. It was shorter than several other outages that happened (and I've only been here for a little bit) and it's entirely possible that it didn't even affect users in any significant way.

There were 100+ posts since I last looked at this thread, so I clicked "Mark Read" and went to the last page. As such, I have no idea of the discussion up to this point.



What if you made it look more like a beam instead of a red I with lopsided black border? Have the black extend down to the right and make it look like the extension of an I beam.

Here's some options for a microbadge for Kate Rusby fans, to go in the group Music » Artists » K.

Microbadge for Kate Rusby fans:
Over text to read "Kate Rusby fan"

Option 1
 

From this photo of her (I left the background in due to the shadow).
 


Option 2
 

Quote:
Transparency Test:
 

From her "Hourglass" album cover
 


Option 3
 

This image is the logo her site will plug into your favorites list if you bookmark her site.

I'm not sure what would be the best one to use, so I'm posting here for feedback from the group. I'm somewhat leaning towards the "K" letter graphic. I don't tend to prefer letter microbadges, but this is already a logo her site has identifying with her. On the other hand a photo microbadge would be nice.

So I'm unsure, what do you folks think?

Interesting. We have 27+ votes for this. I wonder why? We, on average get at most 12 votes for a badge.


the OP put a link to the thread item in the BGG Down announcement.

[edit] PLEASE, don't just vote 'None of the above', without any comment. Unless you are just being difficult (my belief), it is somewhat pointless.

My guess is that some (many) of the no votes have to do with the political (in)correctness of using the Confederate battle flag as a microbadge. Even the band doesn't use the battle flag as part of its logos any longer (although it does use designs that include the US flag on some of its merchandise).

Personally, I think that the flag logo is too pixely (yes, I know that isn't a word) as it stands right now (in the first and third versions). I like the flag better in the second version (the red seems less purplish), but don't like the black bar beneath the flag symbol.

Maybe you could use the cross from the God & Guns album cover (which is the band website's favicon currently...)?
