The science of history is a great bulwark against the stream of Time; in a way it checks this irresistible flood, it holds in a tight grasp whatever it can seize floating on the surface and will not allow it to slip away into the depths of oblivion

That's not really true, though. "I've been to Disneyland" certainly does not imply I am continuing to go to Disneyland in the present - just that it has been done some time in the unspecified past.
Ah, but that is specific to the verb "to go" and is Present Perfect Continuous.

I've caught a baseball

I've sung a song

I've taken drugs

I've failed to get my point across.

I'm just quoting rules you know... I break just as many all the time with English. It is a living language and subject to change (and I actually just like arguing - so take what you will from that.)

Re: RPG Microbadges - Design, Discussion and Request Thread
Cool, thanks for the lively feedback!

Now, does anybody feel like (or is feeling, or will have been feeling like) designing microbadges for those QOTD regulars, past and present? My delight would be continous (and I'm sure others would be, too).

Thanks for the kind words, Clark. But that's because you're reading what I've typed, and not seen me typing it, taking my time. And thank goodness you don't have to listen to me speaking English. Reading and writing in English is much easier for me (since I'm practising it all the time) than listening and speaking.

Add word "original" after the imageid number to show the image at right size

Could we see the source image? Right now I have no idea what I'm looking at.

I would definitely try something else, as the top of the house loses all its definition when translated into 16x16.

There are a lot of beautiful elements on the image you provided, maybe use some of those?

It looks much darker than in the original artwork. I really like the "washout" look of the original art. A simple resizing of the moon thingy would look like this:

 


This would still need some work, but looks more like the original tone of the artwork. Or did you specifically want the microbadge to be darker?

If you like that one, I can clean it out a bit and post a poll to get more feedback and submit it when folks think it's ready?

Definitely try to keep the feel of the original, yet I would try going just the slightest bit darker to give the microbadge more weight on the page.
