    I have an idea for a Fanforce Icon for our group. I came up with the idea of using the Rebel Alliance insignia, but instead of red, we use the Ravens colors, dark blue? And then we could cross lighsabers across the insignia... Any comments?

    I have a rough picture put together of what I am suggesting, but I need someone I can e-mail to so they can post it on their web site for everyone else to see. Any takers. pm me an address.

    Luke_Starkiller has the icon and is going to post it on his website, soon hopefully so everyone can see it.

    That should work better than the raven and crab ideas we had. The image will still be clear and not look like a small square of colors. If we wanted to make it more Maryland, the rebel insignia could have the MD flag in it. I'll make one so I can show you what it looks like.

    Mogook,

    I think you could watermark the flag behind my image like you did with the crab. That way we could still have some semblance of Maryland in the logo....

    Yeah, that might work too.

    Hey Mogook,

    Do you need a copy of my icon or did Star-killer pass it on to you??

    Yeah, that's very clean looking. Good job. I'll add the watermarked flag to the background.

    Alright, here's some icons I did.

    This is MuttandSolo's but I added the watermarked flag to the background. HERE

    This is the flag in the shape of the rebel insignia, the background is transparent making it hard to see on white. HERE

    And this is the same icon but no transparent background. HERE

    All of them look great! My vote would be for the MuttandSolo one with the watermarked flag. Very nicely done, both of you :D

    Hey Mogook,

    Nice job. They all look good. The flag overlayed on the rebel symbol is a little difficult to make out what it is, if you don't know what you're looking at. The Rebel symbol is a little too narrow for that to work I'd say, unless you can work it around to make the flag more distinguishable.

    I like the Maryland flag design on the Rebel Insignia on the transparent background. :D

    All of 'em are really good though!

    MuttandSolo,

    I don't think there's anyway to get around the confusion when working with such a small image size. But, for a shirt, or website, the rebel insignia would be much bigger, and the flag would be easily distinguishable.

    Speaking of size, does anyone have a link to a large picture of the rebel insignia?

    I like the RavenRebel&Saber icon over the MD flag....

    Hey, I even like the flag, crossed sabres one that MuttandSolo did, but the ones that Mogook did were great as well and they don't even have crabs in them.

    I would love to see the staff adopt these. I'll use it. :)

    Hi, I don't know if you guys want any more submissions or ideas, but I made this a few days ago (as you can tell since it uses the raven) and I just wanted to put it out there to see what you all thought.

    I like the Maryland flag thing, but I am not from that state, so can I use it. Will it mislead folks if I use it?

    Hey, I like the raven too, but how do these look actual size? Can someone put them all on the same page and shrink them to the same size so we can see what they look like and then we could maybe do a poll? Can we add Charm City Fan Force? Some folks will have no idea where we are from if you use the Maryland Flag and Charm City in that they may not know what Charm City is and could be unfamiliar with the Maryland flag. And what if D.C.ites, Virginiaites and West Virginian types want to join, they might not like to use the icon.
