Anyone else feels like it's time to fix the faction graphics bug?

Info: According to a PM from sisko you have to contact him if you want to have a particular icon for your own quiz. Does the picture have to be 64x64 pixels and .png, or is it just a coincidence that all icons so far seem to be that way?

That's 20x20, actually.  We don't want to take up too much space.

...Unless you're not talking about the badge...

No, I mean the little icon by the title of each quiz.  :)

Well, if you run into anything you don't know how to do with icon-making, I'll be glad to take care of it, or better, talk you through it.

We probably ought to stick with 60x60 for consistency, but .gif format works as well or better than .png.

Okay, I noticed that you posted this in an album. 


I tarted it up a little; the white border would look awful against some backgrounds and it's a bit larger this way, too.


(Clearly, we're having a display problem - I dunno why those look so much wider here than in the album.)

[edit: still don't know what caused it, but just figured out how to fix it.]

Testing...



Why does that display right while the small ones don't?  Sisko?

I can't see any of those pics.  :( I'll solve it in the my usual way - pretend it didn't happen until the problem goes away by itself! Thanks for jazzing up the icon, anyway.

I posted it in your album - surely you can see it there.

I can indeed! It looks a lot better than the original! Let's hope that sisko has the power to change the quiz icon for this one.

I'm sure he can.

Odd.  I can see it in the post with my no-powers test DL account, and it looks the same; all stretched and wrong.

I can see the outline and it's definitely stretched out for me as well. Odd, as you say.

If you want to help with icons you could make a generic SMAC icon, to be used for all SMAC-related quizzes (I'm sure I'll make one or two some day). Perhaps some kind of generic "music", "books" and "movies" icons would be good as well - that way a new upload wouldn't be necessary when making a quiz in one of those categories.

Point me at some images, and I'll have your way with them...

I'm having a devil of a time finding how to change the icon on a quiz...

How annoying.  I finally found how to change the icon, and the hoops I had to jump through ended with the transparency not working...

* Random quote

The ancient Chinese had a name for it: Feng Shui. We call it energy flow. It is the same thing, the same thought: energy is everywhere, but only a fraction of it is tapped by humans for their purposes. Now the Progenitors have taught us that we can tap not only our own latent abilities, but the latent abilities of the Universe itself.
~Prophet Cha Dawn 'Planet Rising'
