your avatars don't look good in a forum where the background isn't black...  they look awesome in black-background forums, but wouldn't it be better to make them TRANSPARENT GIFs?  so that it will have the middle circle thing, and then the background is transparent?

how about this:  (same avatar... 0.12 of a KB bigger than the other, but transparent)



EDIT:  well, i edited it in Flash, and it was hard because it was all blurry... but whoever made it must have the original copy (bigger than 25x25) and if they edit it and make no background, then send me the file... i can save it to a transparent GIF (or they can)

it was just a recommendation :)

Well, uh, thanks for the initiative, but IMHO, it's kind of unnecessary. Our Avatars look fine as is, and changing them, while undoubtedly a quick one or two minute job, would be even more work for the admins, who did only just set us up. Let's at least wait a few days before we start pounding on them with requests.

This was before I knew how to make a transparent GIF, so sue me. I might change it but I think it's OK for now.

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences. The truly wishful dreams, the many-minded dreams are now irresistible - they become facts." - 'The Outward Urge' by John Wyndham

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance. Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill

I was just j/king about the avatar, but I might do a bit of freelancing if you need a bit of help.

I think we should maybe look at emphasizing this sometime in he near future - if you want to make the SW mod become a reality faster, make some mods! I mean, this is probably the most active new forum since NW, so we've obviously got the community support - if we could get people to just make a model here, a texture there, or, like they did for TBP, subcontract out the easier mods to skin (some Raider Transpport I think), we could get the mod out faster, larger, and it would have a greater number of ships people actually want. Just insist on high quality.
