With the new smilie, how about we get ourselves a [MTDG] smilie?
Hmm, saving as a JPEG made the colors change slightly. Which file type would not have color changes, but still be under 4 KBs? I only have paint, too...
Great job, though, Ginger Ale!
You can also use PNGs and GIFs, I think.
If you give me the original avatar, I can fix one up for you - I can adjust the quality levels in the GIMP, so I can have it the best quality at exactly 3.9 KBs or 4 KBs - in paint, you can only save it, not adjust the levels. It makes a huge difference.
RegentMan: any particular colors? I'll see what I can come up with...
PNGs are WAY too big (like over 12 KBs) and GIFs look much worse.
Here's the original, though:
Thanks for the help.
not if you use PNG-8's
A bit better... 3.9 KBs
Hmmm... does the MTDG really have any specific colors? We could use the teams' colors, but I don't think they'll blend well. Maybe like the Civ III colors of red on tan or gold on tan?
For the team images, I guess we already have those (and some logos), I guess we can come up with a smiley too... I'll take mine off.
So we can't use them?
Well, thanks anyway, Ginger. It looked good to me.
That's too bad, GA. They were very attractive and tastefully done. I was about to ask for one for myself.
OTOH, I can see how people might mix them up with the board staff avatars, and noobs might PM the game members for board help. I guess in this case you did too good a job of making them look professional.
Yeah, if only there was a way so we could display them only in the MTDG forums...
