Re: Badges

Yes, the overlap does look better than the side by side, I agree. Different colored ones for the different awards would be my first thought, but you said it would require more graphics. I understand.... Lemme think..... Would it be more work to have the same type of graphic per award per year and just change the year on it as needed. (which would require a different graphic for each award, so I don't know.) I'm good at coming up with ideas and suggestions that trigger even better ideas for folks, so I'll be thinking!

Re: Badges

The problem is we are talking about a 30x30 graphic, so trying to get the years on there and be legible is near impossible. Remember the badge is merely to represent you were awarded something, not necessarily a record of all that you were awarded.

That said, it is possible we could do other things, like signature banners that would give more room (150x30, for instance), or put text next to the graphics (similar to the online/offline status text under the user names on the left). Since the awards are only given out once a year, making a custom graphic for each award winner isn't *that* big of a deal, as long as the categories of the awards doesn't balloon, or the frequency of the awards increase.

Re: Badges

Ah..... ok. I got it now! lol

Would signature banners "crowd" the signature area or the area on the left? Say if one is so awesome as to receive an awards every year? (just questions) Actually, that is where I have seen awards positioned, is on on the mini-profile thingy on the left... sometimes it makes the area look tacky. But normally is like.... the awards you get pinned...like ribbon type.

Totally off the top of my head, here, cause I'm bored (yeah odd since I have three boys... sshhhh) What about, or is there a way to add a section to one's profile page, like an award section? And have them listed there.... okay that may to too "out there".

I do like the overlapping thing like in your signature, though. smile

Re: Badges

I could create overlapping awards for the profile area. At this point, though, I still haven't implemented the badging system to get graphics into that area. And with an awards "bar", I'd likely have to tweak it some to allow for something larger than 30x30.

But yeah, the idea would be to put it into the profile section. That's where the 1/2/3/x year badges also should eventually go.
