mieu's shields are very easy to customize. I used Paint.net to do mine which is subject to change at any time. :)

The Order needs someone with actual PS skill making those shields. They look abysmal right now, like something thrown together in a minute by a first time PS user.

Any volunteers? :cat:

 

And I don't claim to be a PS-pro but I think you should appreciate at least the fact that someone has done something at all. It's not what you say, but how you say it, you know... ;)

Some of the shields are not very attractive, true. We need a template where you can simply write in the text... adding a personal picture for every shield is a lot of work though. I do also prefer LordCrash's shield design.

 

I am pretty good with Photoshop, but there is no way in hell that I am creating 150 shields for all of the members. :) We need a simple template where the users can update the shield's text online (the pic too if they want). Is there a way to do this online? Something like google docs but just as a paint program?

 

Or we just ban the personal shields and make an unpersonlized one that all members can use.

It's enough to stop them from spreading. Avatars are fine, but signatures will get annoying real fast.

Yeah, I guess. But the shields could also be hidden with a "spoiler".

 

I'd like to hear what the others have to say... and maybe have a democratic vote.

Let's see...

 

I count several shields in various forms. And just a single count on people who are displeased with it.

 

Besides, people who dislike seing signatures can disable them in their profile-preferences. Its even possible to disable specific users' signatures without resorting to completely ignoring them.

I just want to be democratic about it. These are my thoughts:

 

-the design of the shield we use (it should be official)

-where the shield may be placed: in the signature (with our without a spoiler), only as an avatar, only on the first page of our thread; a combination of these options

-should the shield be personalized or a standard unpersonalized one

-should they be banned

 

If everybody is fine with they way it is, then we will just leave it the way it is.

:excl: No one is selling them or making money, geez, its just a bit of fun and if you dont like them in peoples sigs then block them and get over it. There not obligatory like its not for me to list what i am playing or reading, it makes me Unique which is in the spirit of Rpg's :yucky:

And i have said on numerouse occasions (after being contacted the moderator) that they need to be reduced to 100 pixles in the sig bar so they dont take up too much room

"The size is ok for Avatar on the Forum but you will need to

downsize to 100 pixles to add to the signiture bar"

I don't know what's the problem... Every user can choose an avatar and a signature he or she likes. If someone doesn't like the personal settings of other users, I don't give a damn thing, that's their decision and theirs alone. If somebody will create a general shield for the whole order I wouldn't complain but there is none yet and even if there would be one there is no obligation to use it.

I'm also pretty good in PS but I didn't have the time yet to create a better shield (I have a job and a famliy to care about) but perhaps I will improve my design in the future or even create a complete new one. I could also upload my PS template if somebody wants it but it wouldn't help people who are not trained enough with PS to integrate their emblems or names....

What the ****? This isn't a German association with rules for everything, this is just a bunch of people who wants to help the project a bit further. If a shield is that good that most of us decide to use it, perfect! But if not, who really cares? I will not support an idea which encourages people in their arrogance or intolerance....

Do what you want, i'll still stand by my opinion that some of the shields are badly made. Nothing will change that.

No rules? There's one you're already breaking.

Users may also create a signature that appears at the end of every post. Such signatures should remain at six lines or less of text without imagery, or at most two lines of text with imagery. All images, regardless of text configuration, must fit within a perimeter of 125 pixels high by 600 pixels long.

:) If people dislike my shield I will remove it. Nakia is a rogue and not a knight. I just found it fun and enjoy fooling around with what mieu so kindly started.. Avatars and signatures are a matter of choice and some I like and some I don't. None of the shields are official. I do not have PS. I used Paint.net.

 

On this I am adamant that I will not change my avatar except at the order of a moderator. My signature will reflect who and what I support. Shields should not be mandatory.

Does everybody have to shut the **** up in here or what? Is that your rule?

 

These were only my thoughts, nothing else. I am not forcing any rules upon anybody, I am just asking what everbody thinks and those are my thoughts. I really don't care if anybody uses a shield or not, I am just trying to be democratic and respect what everybody thinks and wants.
