New rank structure

Administrators will post news concerning the site here.

Okay, that doesn't look too bad after being downsized a little. Here's a graphic using it. Don't know what rank it would be.

My master copy has a drop shadow that I added behind the crystal and crescents after uploading this one.

Here's another take, reducing it even farther and dropping it on the previous Empress design.

Image

And here's a cleaned up version, using six stars instead of nine spheres.

I like the Empress design, even if it looks like a bouquet of flowers on my resolution... It'd be really nice if instead of stripes, there's some kind of scroll design (I don't want to say Tribal Artwork....)

I've looked for scrollwork for a background, and can't find anything usable.

I like the stripes.

Ok how about this progression for the royals.

Just a crescent alone on the stripes for Princess.

Crescent with Crystal for Queen

Crescent Crystal and stars for Empress?

It has my vote. Not that I ever expect to have one. ;p

That's easy enough.

So... Crescent moon for princess, crescent and crystal for queen, and crescent, crystal and stars for empress.

Another option is to have one star on each side for princess, two on each side for queen, and three on each side for empress.

I was using four stripes for princess, five for queen, and 6 for empress. Keep that, or just have stripes filling the field? Five 3 pixel tall stripes with a 1 pixel black border will make up the 25 pixel field height.

And finally, staff graphics. I do most of the moderating myself, and Sunny pitches in when he notices something I miss, but we are both administrators. We do have an official moderator, but he's not very active anymore. Stacy is also listed as an administrator.

There are no other staff positions, so just two graphics are needed. I favor simple, clean designs, so....

As you say, those are really nice, clean designs. I don't see you getting much better into such a small area.

The Star progression idea seems a bit subtle compared to the amount of difference all the other levels has had. I like how the Admin and Mod signs look.

lwf58: You may want to increase the contrast in the "Administrator" text a little so that it stands out. It blends into the background somewhat. The "Moderator" graphic looks great.

And here are the versions of the top three with five gold stripes and the suggested layout.

Easy fix. I just add a 1 pixel border around the lettering of both to keep 'em looking the same, and that's that.

I think those royal crescents are a keeper.

Those look good.

Clean, and easy to see to boot.
