Backstage needs a little icon!
« on: 14 May 2013, 01:08 »

All the other websites and forums stick a little icon on my tab and with my bookmarks. Backstand doesn't!

This is an urgent matter that should be quickly fixed post haste.

A favicon!

I could probably whip one up later today using the 'B' from Backstage or something.

It should use the letters BS.

Because Backstage, but also because we all know roleplayers...

This is a forum on steroids tbh. The rate at which content worth reading is being generated could get you pregnant.

Did up a couple, 16x16 images are tricky to work with!

B:


BS:

(The 'S' on BS is difficult to see because of the dark background.)

I fired off the .icos to Silver so he can opt to use them or not. ;)

I'd actually been considering something similar to the B one, only using the EVE icon to do it. >.>

Morwen's Law:
1) The number of capsuleer women who are bisexual is greater than the number who are lesbian.
2) Most of the former group appear lesbian due to a lack of suitable male partners to go around.
3) The lack of suitable male partners can be summed up in most cases thusly: interested, worth the air they breathe, available; pick two.

That's a keen idea Morwen. I can hammer that out shortly too.

Also, the font is available here: http://eve.damianvila.com/fonts.htm (Truetype)

I like the B version.

Maybe having a "BS" pun would be good for something like Chatsubo, where bullshit is almost encouraged... but it isn't here. That isn't the intent of the boards, and it shouldn't be advertised as such even as a pun. Backstage doesn't need an 'edgy' favicon like that.

The EVE version was nice, but I think I like the golden B better, as it fits and blends with the site's theme better. If we used the EVE icon's B it would be a little out of place, imo.

What Safai made is along the lines of what i was thinking, though I was thinking the gold B with a red-brown background. I should've been clearer. xD
