problem with logo on main page

Postby Zarxrax » Sun Jun 30, 2002 7:56 pm

Ya know the little logo thats up in the top left hand corner of the members page? Well, it was apparently made for the default site skin, and it doesn't go well on some skins. The problem is it has that peach color around the edges, and that really shows up on some of the skins. Maybe you could edit the image so its transparent around the edges instead of having any particular color.

And didn't we get a new logo, or was that just temporary?

Hey,

Yeah, you're right!! I made the design when the logo contest was still going on and never switched this one to the new logo. [goes to do that now]

Now the new logo has a white outline around it, looks worse than the peach outline on the old one :roll:
I'm pretty sure it should be possible to get rid of that so the logo will look flush against any color background.

Hey Zarxrax,

The edges need to be antialiased against something. Normally it is done with transparent, but since only one color can be transparent with a gif, there needs to be some color in there. With the skins, I am going to have a selection of logos with the edges antialiased with a veriety of colors and have the skin uploader choose which one they would like to use. Of course, this feature hasn't been implemented yet so you're stuck with what's there for now. :wink:

So why don't implement a simple applet that does the antialiasing in realtime to a chosen background color?

.... just kidding :P

Why not make the logo in PNG format? :D
