As most of you may have noticed, recently we've implemented a badge system for users to easily identify people with moderation powers.

But we're not completely settled on their design.

Err's Original Badges:

Ashen's Badges:

http://img28.imageshack.us/img28/7537/failbadge.png
http://img87.imageshack.us/img87/7264/anbubadge.png

So we'd like your input on which version of these badges we should use. Cast your votes!

EDIT:

Although I'd rather not, I have no real reason to deny someone the ability to add their own style of badges to the poll. Though asking us to do this is the same as asking to cancel the current poll.

If someone wants to try and have their badge set added to the vote, they can send their badge set to either Err or myself. If enough people submit new badge designs and/or enough people agree that we should restart the poll and add in others material, then we will. That said, although we have plenty of time, I'd rather not restart a poll just to accommodate 1 or 2 people.

For those who're willing to spend their time crafting their own badge design, there are a couple conditions for your submissions:

A. There must be a badge for all groups Anbu Leader up to Quasi Admin. If you're not sure which groups I'm talking about, check the first post. An Admin badge would be optional, but preferred.

B. No badge must be taller than 30 pixels high. Any taller and we won't accept it.

C. No badge should end up stretching a users profile space when displayed in a thread. If you keep things below 170 pixels wide, you should have no problem, although the shorter the better.

D. We'd prefer that the badges that are submitted be ones that would look good against this grayscale forum. Seeing as these badges will likely be worn by site officials they will have to be scrutinized by either Err or myself. Anything that looks too bright or messy probably won't be accepted.

I'm sorry, Err. D: Your badges are still awesome though, and I appreciate the work you put into them. :3

That's all Ashen. I stayed away from color to cover my own butt. :lol:Is definitely true. That said, I like the go all out on design and nerf things if we have too approach. >_>

Hey Ashen, why does the Anbu badge look like it have been cut in half, then been poorly put back together? :lol:It's because of the inverse coloring between the white and black letters and the black and white background.

It looks like something cut through it, which is the point of the design.

This is actually Nice
And what makes it even more nice is its 3:28 AM there
and you're still in the mood to create this.

You need to reduce the invisibility of the word "F.a.i.l", I guess.

Err
12-31-2010, 01:37 AM
Hey Nine, you can create a thread just for this in off-topic if you like. I'd like to keep this thread to voting.

AgentShayd
12-31-2010, 01:51 AM
I refuse to vote....>.> ok ok they are both nice...
TO Ashen: the colors are awesome, yet slighty bright, which makes them eye catching though. And if that is what you after...to get ppl to go OMG there is so and so...then you achieved your goal. But still they are flashy and nice.

To Err: your are also nice...simple and to the point. Which makes them some what catchy because they don't make that person stand out to much. YET at the same time they are kinda to plain Jane....for other ppl anyways. But I like them.
So I can not decide. Since I wouldn't be sporting one of those I don't feel like I should vote. Go with how you guys want it. ^^

First of all, I really appreciate both of you guys taking the time to work on these. Thank you. :lol:

If you want constructive criticism:
I like the fact that Ashen used colors, but Err's look cleaner and less choppy than Ashen's. Therefore, I am voting for Err.

I like Ashen's badges. Its colorful. And it looks pretty cool.

12-31-2010, 07:39 AM
I'll be honest. Ashen is trying to lure people with eye candy by putting colors on. On the other hand, Err's badges have higher quality somehow. Err's badges also fuse with the background and make it easier on the eye, so I'm voting for his set.

I like Ashens, but the text for Quasiadmin and supermod is sorta fuzzy.

Hando Craap
12-31-2010, 09:05 AM
:lol:I would go with Err's,only because they seem more ninja like.Ashen's are pretty,I don't do pretty unless it's on a lady.

deidara330
12-31-2010, 11:04 AM
Ashen's use much more color and some use shading with design to give the illusion of 3D Blocks as opposed to a 2D image. The text is also original in each box and the text itself has varrying colors, plus Ashen's badge set has a badge for an admin.

However, Err's badge set is a color that blends into the default color of the forums, so the badges become less outstanding. Additionally, half of the badges have the same style and color of text, not creating such a distinct difference between one badge and another. Plus, the text and badges do appear to be of a slightly higher quality than Ashen's.

I personally prefer Ashen's set of badges.

Hockey Otaku
12-31-2010, 01:02 PM
I like the colorful ones' alone, but for practical reasons I like Err's set because they blend in with the background and are less distracting. Plus it's cool how they're kind of just floating. xD

TheBlackChidori
12-31-2010, 05:00 PM
I prefer Errs. I dislike too much color in the CT area.

Although Ashen's are still cool. I'm happy if he doesn't get it for HIMSELF >:O

Well here's some I took like five milliseconds to make, just, regular userbarish style so meh. I dunno about the colors or symbols or texts or the entire thing altogether, I can change any of that or add symbols or whatever but I doubt I'll need to, since I just made them for the lulz and don't expect them to be used or anything but still. =P

If I expected that, I'd make better ones that actually have symbols and cool text and stuff.

Anyway I just took Ashen's and Err's and made them for all the ones that they had symbols for, so if they have them all, I have them all, but if they missed one, so did I.

I really like the other ones, it's just they're too big and messyish and all different sizes, that's why I made those, but if I actually want to "compete" in a way I would make better ones >_<

The forum colors are already bland, I like Ashen's more because it actually has something other than gray and dark gray.
http://www.facepunch.com/fp/emoot/colbert.gifThis was my primary reason for making my version "flashier" while still keeping the badges consistent with the color scheme of the site, which is a darker look. I understand Err's reasoning for the simple and colorless look that blends with the site. But honestly, I think the site could use a little more depth and eye candy rather than something that just blends in.

I don't say that because I'd be one of the guys with the awesome looking badges either. I just think the site could use something new and refreshing and this is one of the more manageable ways to do just that.

Ashen's are better, color wise. This forum loves the color gray and blue. So color would be good.

the quasi admin one is about the size of Ashen's Flame of erasureActually, your Quasi text is about 20 pixels wider than my CT image, which is too big to be acceptable as it would unnecessarily stretch the post bit. You seem to forget about the excess that comes along with Cooltext images that actually make the pics both taller and wider.

That said, I would prefer it if convo's about new badge designs moved to off-topic or PM's. It's nice to know people are willing to work on designing this stuff, but I'd prefer people be able to see the post I made about whether we should close the poll to let new people submit stuff or not.

01-02-2011, 12:03 AM
I liked Ashen's better, BUT some of the fonts are terrible.
First of all, why can't you use the same font for them all? Perhaps admins could be in bold or something to emphasize they are godlike.
ANBU is almost unreadable, and the difference in fonts between smods and mods doesn't make any sense to me.

I love Err's creation of badges, but I would have to go with Ashen's designs, although I would take what Aurega said in consideration. Possibly a similar-looking text which is clear and each rank's own "look" depending on its "power" position.

For any of those who are classified to the badge's rank.

They're for Admins, Quasi-Admins, Super Moderators, Moderators, and ANBU Leaders.

So many good ones. I think I like Nines and Kazzy's the best

I like Err's because they're simple but still noticeable. It prevents clutter in that area... I like the symbols for each rank too.

I like Ashen's because it has the color. I like the flashiness and showoffyness of it. I also like the symbols for each rank (again).

Nine's are good. I like the color but that's the only thing that set's them apart from each other.

Kazumi's are cool. They combine the simple aspect with the flashy aspect. I just wish the symobls were still there.

Overall, I like Ashen's the best.

I'm in preference to nine's currently. I don't like total blandness. But I don't enjoy rainbows of color flying out of my badge. Nine's keeps simplicity. And has a tad of color. And are high quality and professional looking. >.>

Just giving my opinions about the currently submitted ones, note that these are my opinions only, and it will only impact my personal vote.

Nice and easy fonts, and easy to spot for the average user, but a user who is new might not know what ANBU, Quasi and S.Mod might be. . However, some of the colors stand out too much when compared to the universal color scheme imo, especially without a border to "limit" it.

Overall, a little bland without the symbols.

Just posting these for referance.

Nice way to articulate the badges by using the background shape. Fonts are easy to read, but again, a new user might not know what ANBU, Quasi and S.Mod might be.

I would suggest either a way to highlight the tier each group is (the slashes in the end could be used as an indicator - one slash for ANBU, two for mods etc, otherwise pictured are a good idea) or even better, add something that describes each group.



Ashen's Badges:

So we'd like your input on which version of these badges we should use. Cast your votes!
EDIT:

As said before, fonts are terrible for most of them; ANBU is almost unreadable, while FAIL, quasiadmin and Smods are hard to read. However, icons describes pretty well what each group does.

Background colors might be redundant, as the icons describes each group pretty well.

PS: Why don't quasi have 2 wrenches? I demand 2 wrenches!!!

@Aurega: BTW, a thread could be created to explain and describe the badges to new and current members. In my opinion, symbols are not necessary because members will be confused regardless. Even with Err's badges, we still had members constantly asking what is a SMod or Quasi.

What if the words Super Mod and Quasi-Admin were used instead?

That would be better than SMod or Quasi, but I definitely think once we have an active badge system and whatnot, we should dedicate a thread to explaining the meaning and purpose of badges. People are going to be confused regardless. You can place something blatantly self-explanatory in front of a user and they will still ask questions.

Consider this poll canceled. In less than 24 hours I'll post a new poll for people to vote in and at that time I'll lock this one.

Currently we have submissions from Err, Ashen, Phoenix, Nine, and Kazumi. If anyone else has anything they'd like to submit, change, or if you're working on badges of your own as fast as you can then let me know now. I don't plan on canceling the next vote just to add more people. At most I'm willing to postpone the vote another two days if I learn of people who are making badges of their own. Sadly, I'm just not in the mood to wait on slowpokes any longer than that.

EDIT: From the time of this last edit, I will close this thread in 6 hours if I don't hear news of anyone else making stuff. Time is now 3:34 PM CST.
