What can you do to help?
Hey all! I just got this brilliant idea. In the past the CL's had all submitted some changed images that may have been lower on the priority list of to be changed graphics. RobA was astounding at that. He'd send me graphics that just somehow looked better than the ones I had already made or had just been overlooked.
I'm going to give that opportunity to all of you guys...If you feel like replacing some of the graphics that are here and not looking right...just create a thread in this forum and submit the images as attachments, and if they look really good, I'll use them. It may be best to announce what graphics you're doing first just so I can say yay or nay as to whether or not they're in progress already.
Make sure that any images you want to replace maintain the same dimensions as those they are replaceing, and the same file extension as well.
Any questions, ask here.
Might be a cool challenge idea.
OK Here is one. I created a little search icon that look like a telescope that could replace the magnifying glass (in the upper right hand corner)
Does that look like a telescope?
Here are a couple more. The default post icon coloured to go on our background:
A replacement for the blue right arrow in the same pallete as the check:
I would really like to see something other than the blue envelopes to see the status of the thread. not sure what would fit well though... maybe a gem or somethin?
We're workin on somethin to replace the envelopes...thats a somewhat larger task.
And a quick go at the down pointing blue arrow:
(c'mon guys, jump in! pixel art is fun!)
I can't make buttons and stuff to save my life, never could and I've tried every damn tut on the net. I can do pixel art but you're doing a bang up job so just keep goin :)
I think the magnifying glass gives clearer information. It's such a small icon it's hard to to do anything more complex and retain clarity though.

Love the site work, so far, Arcana! Keep up the brilliant work!
