I like the list (even if it leaves off my animatic stage ::fake sob::). I especially like the comedy beats (squish!)

as for the # of posts??? no idea.

Well, if you haven't noticed, I've implimented the new ranks using the lowest post count list. If anyone can think of anything that should go above Toon, I'm open for ideas. Otherwise we could just go with custom rankings after that.

I'd say go with custom rankings. After 2,000 posts I figure it'd be fairly easy to come up with something to fit someone's personality. If not, nothing wrong with being a toon for a bit.

Only higher than a toon I can think of is Babs' self proclaimed title of "rising media star" or something. ...or tiny toon then looney tune???

That's a good idea! Although, I have to admit that I was never all that fond of the Looney Toons, and this isn't a forum about them anyway, so I don't know if I'd go that far. But Tiny Toon is good!

Ok, the forum is now officially back up and running in its new location. E-mails have been sent to all the current members with their temporary passwords, but if anyone has trouble logging in, just let me know. I'm also going to close down the other forum and redirect people here.

Quick work on the move Fram. Things seem to be working fine here for me. Thanks for getting the accounts set up again too.

I would say, "No problem," but that was a lot of work! ;) I'm glad it seems to be ok, though.

Actually I decided on Tiny Toon at 3K, Animaniac at 5K, and then Freakazoid at 10K, because if you get that many posts, you are an internet dwelling Freakazoid! ;) However, I think I may still allow people to get a custom rank at 4K if they want one, and if not, then they're still covered with the regular system.

I'm experimenting with the little rainbow circle thing to use as icons for forums and topics. I'd planned to use it since before I started the forum, but C.H kind of kicked it into gear. I ended up making my own, though, rather than use his, because I wanted something brighter. Now I just need to figure out how to use it.

Image

I need to add things to it somehow to indicate new posts in a thread, threads that a person has already posted to, locked threads, popular threads, stickies and announcements, as well as a default that doesn't have any of those.

Image

I was thinking of using one of Babs' bows to indicate one of those things, but I haven't decided on what yet. I could also use an anvil, mallet, carrot, and a toon glove, but again I haven't decided how. The toon glove might be good for announcements, since it could point to something important. The carrot could act like an arrow that holds up stickies, or maybe an indicator for new posts. An anvil would be a good symbol for a locked thread, so I'll probably go with that. Not sure about a mallet.

Unfortunately, the programs I have to use are very limited for this kind of thing. I can use MS Paint to do pixel by pixel stuff, but it doesn't save things as a gif very well, especially if I want transparency. The only other program I have is Adobe PhotoDelux Business Edition 1.0, which really isn't designed for this kind of work. It's meant primarily for photo manipulation, so it's always trying to blend things, and smooth edges that I don't want smoothed. Can anyone recommend a good program for editing icons and pixel art like this?

The only one I can recommend is Corel Paint. Any copy from editions 10-12 might help.
