    I was playing around with the GIMP, editing the CFC Moderator, GOTM Staff, and HOF Staff images under their title (). So I decided to create some with a bit more of a MTDG flavor - there are 5 (well, 6). There is 1 for the staff, 1 for each team, with Team Doughnut getting two - their name was too long to fit alongside "Team", so they have "Donut" and "Doughnut". I made them 70 x 15 so if you want you could place it at the bottom of your 70 x 70 avatar, that would be kind of cool, I guess. :goodjob:

    (example: )

    If you guys have any other ideas for images, let me know...

    Team Doughnut


    Team Doughnut Alternative


    Team TNT


    Team MIA


    Team KISS


    Staff


    If only we could put these in our signatures....

    Wow, never knew about that site - so that's where they were made. Anyway, I had some fun doing it ... didn't take too much time.

    Found more free time, not sure if this logo is actually useful or not. The font I used, Forte, has some sortof weird "I"s, so it came across as a J. It is an I though...

    In case you didn't see, I just did a trial of an avatar:

    (I put it at the bottom because it didn't cover up as much text..)

    Looks pretty cool.

    It does indeed look pretty cool. If you could put it with my avatar, I'd switch to it. But would we be allowed to, as that's an official badge of sorts?

    Here a dumb question: how do you add the sticker/ button thingy?
    And can I add it to my avatar or do I have to have a custom one?

    You can add it to your avatar by saving your current avatar to your hard drive, adding the button overlay, and then reuploading the avatar.

    If you want, I'll do it for you (and RegentMan) - specify if you want Doughnut or Donut.

    RM: I doubt we need permission, I'll just ask TF anyway I guess...as long as they go in our avatar.

    Ok, I have done Alphawolf's and RegentMan's. Alphawolf: your avatar, since it's a Civ4 one, was 80 x 80, so I got "Doughnut" in without it being squished like my 70x15 one. I would just wait until TF responds to my PM to switch...

    Alphawolf


    RegentMan


    And both are under 4 KB, so they will work as avatars. If I were you, I'd just back up my old avatar when you want to switch back. If anyone else wants one, just ask..

    You may have to resize Alphawolf's as his avatar is the larger size only allowed to some of the standard Civ 4 avatars and Moderators (80 x 80). When you upload it, it will be too large in dimensions and will have to be the standard avatar size (70 x 70) ie: slightly smaller.

    Yeah, I guess I got confused, thinking his avatar was still a Civ4 one from the gallery in terms of size. New one has been edited in that post.

    Daghdha: Indeed, it looks great. Fits in well.

    Cool! I want one. I want one. Can we let our interior decorator Mistfit take care of all of us?
