New Graphics?

Deciding to give this it's own thread. Feel free to clink it if it is unwarranted.

Okay, so as per my proposal to make some new graphics for the forum as a suggestion (as seen in the Suggestion Box topic), i've made a bunch of stuff. My ideas for expansion of graphics being Topic Tags, Smileys and Postcount Icons. I've done a bunch of stuff for Topic Tags and Postcount Icons - i'm gonna need some help with Postcount Icons though. As many as i've done, I can't actually think of many more iconic gaming items/icons easily, especially from the retro era. If you'd toss out as many suggestions as you can i'd be grateful - don't worry about quality or feasibility, i'll just quality control/sift through the list myself and pick out good ones. Smileys I haven't actually started on yet.

DISCLAIMER: Bear in mind that at the end of the day no matter how much stuff I do and how much you like it, it's ultimatley up to Steve whether or not it gets implemented or not - it's his forum. So no rage/upset if he decides not to do any of it - at least he's not taking anything away, right?

Could I add something?

I know this may sound difficult to implement Steve, but could we have the option of choosing our rank icons per member? Sort of like a theme for personalization like we have our own personal titles. I don't mean that we can make our own icons, but that you can give us the option of choosing which of the provided icons we can use.

Wouldn't that kind of undermine the entire thing of it being a sort of rank-based thing?

Exactly, the system works fine as it is.

I love the icons Luminar, you really did a fantastic job.


**EDIT**
As for iconic game symbols... you could do the Triforce, Mr. Disk, Turnips, Barrels, Bananas, Crystals, Coins... I can go on for a while.

You could do a film strip or a film canister for movies. For the Spore Forums you could have an egg, some one celled organism, the wilosaurus or just Will's head.
I need a new tag.

O...kaaaay. I'm having trouble editing the first post specifically. I can edit anything else fine, seemingly. I'm wondering if there's a certain threshold of server load i'm passing when trying to edit the post where it just blocks it for whatever reason. I'll just keep throwing them into whatever post I can, and stick em in the main post when the chance presents itself.

I think it discourages rank hierarchy if people are allowed to choose their icons.

It's not an elitist/heirarchical thing, it's just a "nice thing". No system should be designed around it's would-be abusers.

Whatever, I just want to stick with one type without it changing just for the sake of preference.

People like  the rank thing though because it gives them a goal to reach, it may be a silly, useless, and somewhat shallow goal but it's a goal none-the-less.

Actually the Emeralds should be flashing slower... I know they flashed like that in the game but then that game was probably the beginning of seizure litigation. Maybe make them pulse slowly?
