Welcome to the RPGG microbadge design and feedback thread. BGG related microbadges should go to Microbadge Submissions, Design, and Feedback and VGG related badges to Video Game Microbadges - Design, Discussion and Request Thread for discussion.

This thread is also used to report RPGG related microbadge fixes and corrections.

Process:

1. Search the current microbadges and make sure you are not duplicating an already existing badge.
2. Create your badge. The badge must have a transparent background as opposed to a white background.
3. Post the proposed microbadge image (which has been uploaded to your personal gallery or other place), name, and mouseover, grouping description, to this thread for review.
4. When the badge is ready (determined by you and the community), upload the badge using the tool, and in the Admin notes, post a link to where you posted your badge in this thread for community discussion. If you don't do the latter, your badge will be rejected.
5. Make a post to RPGG Microbadges - Official Submission Thread so that I will know there is an RPGG related badge for me to approve. Embed your microbadge in a thread by including the following command in the body of your post (replace 123 with your badge ID #): [microbadge=123]. I do not follow the the pending microbadges queue, so if you fail to post to this thread, I might miss there's a microbadge for me to approve.

For more in-depth look at the process, see our Microbadge Design and Submission Wiki

Ideally, post your image in this thread (via gallery or other means), and the pending fields that you propose (only included the ones that truly matter):

Group:
Grouping Description:
Name:
Mouseover Text:

Rules:

• First, if you do not recall, here is the link to microbadge basics: Microbadge
• Before creating a new badge, please make sure it is not already in the system
• As usual, microbadges should be appropriate for the site
• Please make sure you are happy with your badge before you upload it. I can fix badges later, but it is a manual process
• No political badges
• Have fun and be nice to each other

Other tips:

• fan is always lowercase
• RPGs should have "RPG" in their name, e.g. Pathfinder RPG fan
• the designers in this thread are here to help you
• if you want to request a badge that you do not wish to make yourself, please post to this thread or to Microbadge Request & Design Feedback GeekList v4 (retired)

Posts shouldn't get deleted, unless they contain Kickstarter (or similar) links. And even then the admin who deletes those posts, shoud message you about that.

I'm back with a little more time to spend on this:

No Thank You Evil! RPG Fan Badge from Monte Cook Games' Cypher System Stable

Here's the reference image:


And the (rather non-linear) evolution so far:


The far right is the most recent iteration. I'm still unhappy with the "V" but my GIMP-fu is weak and an hour of tweaking combinations of Black Green and Transparency have only come to this.

Feedback, comments and suggestions welcome.

Yeah, this is a perfect example of why this thread exists in the first place. The last version looks SO MUCH better than the first one

I agree with last one, although there are small things you can do to it if you want, like reinforce the tops of the I and L to match other outlines, and fakeslant the contour of the E using partial transparency.

I still think this should have used the full 16 pixels.

I still think it does. I used the top and bottom row for a little bit of dropshadow (most visible at the top, I guess).

But does it count as dropshadow if it's black around black? Doesn't that just make it a blurred black?

I can see the top shadow, but not the bottom shadow.

Is there a shadow in the original image (I'm way too lazy to go dig it up, sorry)? If you feel up for it, you could provide another image, using the full 16x16 for the image without drop shadow and poll these two. I can easily swap the image, in case the new one should happen to win and you'd agree with that.

In any case, I'm fine with the badge being as it is. I believe that a designer should have some "artistic" freedom. If this is what you as the designer prefer, and there weren't any massive "complaints" about it, so be it.
