On another forum I frequent we have community badges - this is what we use for the S2000 Mid-Atlantic and NYC Communities:

http://poindexter.smugmug.com/photos/36637585-M.gif http://poindexter.smugmug.com/photos/36637582-M.gif<---the final versions of both badges had better animation.

We also use banners as well:

But I'm not sure these can be used on the board structure M3forum uses.


Banners aside, anyone want a Mid-A badge? If so, what kind of design would you want to see? I designed the two animated badges here, but I don't consider myself to be any kind of special Photoshop person, and I certainly stink with animations - so - is there someone who wants to help?

i guess we could use badges, but what would be the point since we already have the location where we from written under the avatar ?

Just for fun. Now that we have a new, more localized, forum it could be a way to advertise it to people who don't look at the communities. Check out http://www.S2Ki.com to see how they are used there.

I'll play with the lettering some more, then post up the final versions. You all can pick and choose which one you want to stick in your signatures.

I do take suggestions, and don't mind customizing if I have the time.

If you want to stick one of these in your signature:

1. Right Click the image
2. Copy the properties tag - will look something like this: http://poindexter.smugmug.com/photos/37995857-Ti.gif
3. Open up your Edit Signature option in your UserCP
4. Place the image url in your signature with [~img]......."the image url".....[~/img] and make sure you take the ~ out of the tag.
5. If you want it to link to the Mid-A forum, do this (remember to take the ~'s out):
[~url=http://www.m3forum.net/m3forum/forumdisplay.php?f=74][~img]http://poindexter.smugmug.com/photos/37995857-Ti.gif[/url]

I vote for #3 but I dunno about the Capitol bulding in there... Suggestion: something a bit more generic that would cater to all Mid-Atlantic members might be better choice... :nixweiss:

Tell me a way to fit it into a little graphic, and I'll get to work.

thanks for your hard work :thumbsup:

I taught myself photoshop, so I get better by playing around with different projects - and I enjoy doing it.

Not a bad idea to use that as an avatar :thumbsup:
