This is where we talk about the thread / post icons
On our forum they have the function of thread prefixes.

@Buncle: take a look at the icons attached. the askforhelp.gif is not so sharp as the original .jpeg. can you do something about it? i want the question mark more visible like the exclamation point maybe..
Anyone else feels like it's time to fix the faction graphics bug?

That should not be the case - I bet it's something to do with sloppy color conversion.  On it.

Okay, you were editing when I posted, and I did not see that about making the ? more prominent.  Hold on.

@Buncle: can you make some new thread icons with that SMACish user interface background?

let's see: scenario, faction, map. of course, the text should be SMAC blue.

Now this user interface background - that would be the thing I used for a datapad in Warcrimes1?

I've rooted around and found that; I can't guarantee it'll look like much at the size we need, but I'll do one up as a sample...

I dunno; it looks nice enough, but the border and the SMACness maybe doesn't stand out enough.

Industrial Grade Nano-Paste, one of Planet's most valuable commodities, can also be one of its most dangerous. Simply pour out several canisters, slide in a programming transponder, and step well away while the stuff cooks. In under an hour the nano will use available materials to assemble a small factory, a hovertank, or enough rifles to equip a regiment.
