I like the VOY one best, with the NX-01 a close second.

danieldoof 01-23-2006 02:54 PM

btw....I want to have a 3d clock for myself...or do I have to make it?

please someone help

Zeke 01-23-2006 03:46 PM

You already have the most 3D clock around, DD. But I take it you mean a "new-style" clock logo like the one in my avatar (and the one I just made for evay). I'll make a blank clock image available shortly when I redo the forum FAQ, where I'll also explain the rules for its use. I don't mind this trend of everyone having clock avatars, but there does need to be a distinction between official and unofficial ones.

danieldoof 01-23-2006 04:31 PM

therefore I wrote the pm you probably have read :wink:

to ask for permission because you created the logo
but I have not found one of the new 3d-kind blank yet...

Zeke 01-23-2006 05:09 PM

There isn't one -- that's why I said I would make one available shortly.

I know I only go by Derek on the forums, but I always do a double take when someone else's addressed as DD.

danieldoof 01-23-2006 06:02 PM

HEH

btw....what the f... have I started with my avvi :wink:

Chancellor Valium 01-23-2006 06:05 PM

Hey, Zeke, are you gonna add a TARDIS one eventually, too?

Celeste 01-23-2006 06:19 PM

Ooooo... shiny. I like the DS9 one the best, with Voy a close second. Nebulars are teh awesome.

e of pi 01-23-2006 10:42 PM

A TARDIS would be most logical, thus, it will never happen on this forum.

Fighting the logout bug today
 
So?

Sa'ar Chasm 01-23-2006 11:10 PM

So it's a TARDIS.

e of pi 01-24-2006 12:38 AM

But it's not in the upper lefthand corner.

Sa'ar Chasm 01-24-2006 01:17 AM

*smacks forehead*

Sorry, I got a bit confused. People were talking about avatars. Carry on.

I can give you a blank version of the one I have, if you want! :D

e of pi 01-24-2006 02:36 AM

I'll take one. Hit me.

Okay, okay... here it is, pre-scaled to 100x100 for your avataring enjoyment! :D

Also, I reccomend PNG's for this one, as it just looks the best, but they're still small at (for the clock) 5.54 kB.

e of pi 01-24-2006 04:09 AM

Thanks muchly. :)

Gatac 01-24-2006 02:33 PM

My Paintshop Pro-fu is weak, but I whipped up a Grammaton Cleric clock icon thingie. Yay.

e of pi 01-24-2006 10:22 PM

I'll get around to it. "Soon."

Zeke 01-24-2006 10:29 PM

It's not a requirement. I dread the day when every avatar on this ship agrees with mine. </Janeway>

e of pi 01-24-2006 10:34 PM

Well, I'll just play Zuke's advocate, then.

whoiam 01-24-2006 11:13 PM

That day will never come, Zeke - whatever else happens, you can trust my laziness to prevent a full house:D

XD!

e of pi 01-25-2006 03:11 AM

XD? Buwha?

whoiam 01-25-2006 04:02 AM

I think it's supposed to be an indication of amusement.

But, the majority of the world knows this as a type of flash memory.

Sa'ar Chasm 01-25-2006 04:24 AM

Or a deuterated halide written the wrong way round.

Zeke 01-25-2006 04:55 AM

You know, it's really a very common emoticon. No need to make Ginga feel like she's speaking Chinese. If you need it explained, XD represents laughing so hard your eyes close.

If you want weird, try those face-on/manga emoticons like ^_^.

Being pedantic, neither of them is really an emoticon - an emoticon being the image that they're used as shortcuts for - they're much closer to being traditional ASCII art.

And the XD one is particularly annoying because I've been using them (the memory cards) for about 2 years now... it still rankles that everytime I talk to someone about photography online they think I'm making fun of them :(

Of course, the correct response when someone uses '^_^' on you is to ask what happened to their nose... :wink:

Sa'ar Chasm 01-25-2006 05:19 AM

No, *this* is weird:

*(B||
___\\

A guy wearing a toque, ski goggles, and a scarf (although in this particular font the goggles look a little misshapen).
(also, ignore the grey line - it's to make things line up and I don't know what the background colour is.)
(I'm putting way too much effort into this.)

Nobody's ever seen an XD before? Well, at least Zeke has. Sillies. :lol:

Hotaru 01-25-2006 06:18 AM

I've seen XD before.

Things I've learned from FFXI:

^-^ <---happy
;_; <----sad

>;_;< <----bat

orz <---hitting head on the floor, see the o is the head, the r is the body and arm, and the z is the legs.

>_< <---- angry-unbelieving

-_- <---"whut?"

~_^ <--- wink

~_~ <--- sleepy

o.o<--- "Oh My God!"

¬_¬ <----shifty eyes

>.> <---easily made shifty eyes

<(^-^<)
(>^-^)> <-----happy dancers

(x.x)O=(.-O) <---punching someone

There's more, but I can't remember them ^^; <--- Silly mistake sweatdrop face.

Xeroc 01-25-2006 06:49 AM

Funny thing, I thought it was Intel's Execute Disable Bit! ;)

Ginga 01-25-2006 07:01 AM

*applauds Hotaru's post*

Don't forget the kitties... and other things, too.

:3 - Cat
X3 - Happy cat
>:3 - evil cat
3:< - angry fanged thing
>:[ - angry face
DX - Ack! face
D:< - Angry shocked face
D: - Shocked face

Oh, and also, there's Lexy's ;D - winking happy face.

Talk To You Later.

NetLingo is really really useful for looking this stuff up, if you're interested.

Zeke 01-25-2006 04:02 PM

Following up on a comment from e of pi... arrrrgh. You're right. The different heights of those new banners are driving me nuts. When I get home I'll rework them -- they're pretty quick to make with my current program.

Speaking of which, those who, like me, have struggled to find a good freeware image editor would be well advised to try Ultimate Paint, the one I'm using now. It takes getting used to, but far less than a monstrosity like The GIMP; it's powerful enough for my needs, and best of all, it doesn't nag. Check it out.

whoiam 01-25-2006 04:17 PM

I didn't find the GIMP all that hard to get used to...

Admittedly, I came to it off the back of 3 or 4 years on Paint Shop Pro 6, 7 amd 8 - a suite that has the same manic love of hiding options menus in the damdest places...
