    I see in the icon listing that almost every other FanForce group has their logo as an icon. So should we consider doing this? If so, do we use the SSWS logo, or come up with something more generic that will cover more ground, as not everyone in the area is SSWS, but they can still be part of the Seattle FF.

    I was thinking that myself!

    I'll see what we can do about getting some files made into an icon.

    You can also design your own banner and color scheme for the Seattle FF as well. Here are a few examples of what other FF groups have done:

    I definatly think it should be something that is not exclusive to SSWS, so that people don't feel like that if they're a part of FF, they have to be a part of SSWS.

    I'm into the icon making buisness.

    What do you want it to look like?

    I'd vote on using that first SSWS pic for the icon. Maybe we could get Alpha Base and Garrison Titan icons too? :)

    I worked on it this morning, but it kept coming out as crap, so I'll have to do a little more work on it in a little while when I'm done working.

    ...right click on the image and open in a new window to see them as the small size they really are.

    Jedi_Kjersti_Renn: Good job. The only problem is that they have to be 50x50 pixels. Tell you what I'm going to do. I'm going to take your icons (I hope you don't mind) and resize them and give them a better transparency and stuff, then I'll post 'em back on here, okay?

    Exactly 50x50? Because those are like, 50x49 or 50x50... nothing bigger than 50 on a dimension. They just look bigger because that's what happened when I posted them. Anyway, it's all coo'. I need to download the other 7 photo editing programs I used to have on my computer before it died temporarily, because I'm a bit limited at the moment.

    Well I clicked on them, and check them out and yeah they are 49x50 and stuff. But the iconmaking rules are they have to be 50x50. So I fixed your's up, and i added some transparency to them. Some of them look pretty crappy, but I like the first one of them better ;)

    my server is down right now, so I'll post 'em when it's up and running again.

    k, here they are with better transparency.


    [image=http://jcicons.fcpagse.com/sswsicon1.gif]

    I like this one /\ better


    [image=http://jcicons.fcpages.com/sswsicon2.gif]

    Not really that great. It mussed up when I was adding the transparency.

    [image=http://jcicons.fcpages.com/sswsicon3.gif]

    Same with this one....


    There ya have it.


    I think I'm just going to make the other red icon 50x50 and leave it, it looked cool ;).

    Wow, those look great, Red! I especially like the middle one, however, I am sure there are some of those OTHER kind who favor the Imperial look.. ;)
    Right, Punk Jr?
