Oh we need this! Maybe the mouseover could be more generic "I've been part of a TPK (Total Party Kill)" to appeal to players and GMs?

Anyway, the TPK is one we should design!

Re: RPG Microbadges - Design, Discussion and Request Thread
I've got a mock-up of the graphic, but I'm at a loss of how to post it without going through the "official" route. I tried uploading it to my gallery -- but it got converted from a PNG to a JPG and the size went from 16x16 to 150x150. Any tips?

Thanks,

First use the legacy uploader (there is a link below the new Select/Upload uploader, or use this link). Second don't delete it from the gallery, so that we can't show you the error you made. Third use the 'original' keyword in the imageid tag like this: [ imageid = XXXXX original ] (without the spaces, except the one between XXXXX and original).

A bit of extra geekgold as well for anyone that can help Mark out! They also have a new game Bounty Head Bebop that could use some microbadge love!

Re: RPG Microbadges - Design, Discussion and Request Thread
I'd like to see a set of three related badges for:

I prefer crunch in my Role-Playing Games

I prefer story in my Role-Playing Games

I prefer a mix of crunch and story in my Role-Playing Games

Maybe a simple three color spectrum that the amount of three simple colors?

Re: RPG Microbadges - Design, Discussion and Request Thread
Okay... this one is important! I'd like to see a catchy and colorful micro badge that will be given away freely and will help us promote the ranking/rating of RPGs and RPG Items. One of our goals for 2010 is to have 5000 ranked RPG items and 1000 ranked RPGs. I don't know yet what the mouseover will be, but something along the lines of:

I Support the RPG Geek Ranking Project. Click me!

Can I see a couple of designs for this? Use your own best creative judgment... thanks!

EDIT: one simple idea might be 3 smaller versions of that cool tan RPG book we use for the Designer/Artist/Editor badges in a staircase like effect.

EDIT EDIT: Since this is a community goal, I'll offer 20 for the chosen MB design!

I like the concept! Yellow is the right color (as that's the color we use for stars for the average rating on an item) but some people have an aversion to it so we might need to have an alternate (blue?) to give people a choice.

I'm still open to any and all ideas for this... you creative types rock!

I will submit a design later, and if the purpose is to animate users about ranking RPG items - heck, then I think it should (will) be an animated badge...!

Let me check on that first. While I have no problem with an animated badge, they have traditionally been reserved ONLY for very special award badges. Not free giveaways (and this will be one popular badge, I assure you!).

You might want to have a non-animated backup

Just make it an animated badge while the drive is going on, to get people going, and then make it an unanimated one, when the drive is over, so that people can still brag about it, but it doesn't violate the previous policy on animated badges (heck, it may even be a new animate-users-with-time-limited-animated-badges policy) - yes, I am ex-advertising, I have absolutely no conscience when it comes to marketing (ok, well, actually I do, quite a bit - but it was fun saying...)

Can I just ask - is that the "RPG Geek Ranking Project" or "RPG Geek Rating Project" - I think there's a difference? I assume it's the latter, as there's a lack of ratings of RPG items, right? The ranking then follows automatically from when the ratings start building up...
