We need some new icon for the newest category Flags of the World.

Which pixel artist wants to create one?

 

I would say it should fit to the already existing flag icons

Flags of Organisations flags_org.gif

Municipal Flags flags.gif

 

How about the same 3 flags with a globe in the background?

Maybe use the globe with only the lat/long lines, instead of land masses and oceans? Might show up better -- IDK

 

Or maybe change the colors of the flags so they pop. I am having trouble seeing green and blue flags against a green and blue background. :)

 

BUT -- I'm not an officer, so I don't have a vote :)

Yes, you are right. We should change the colors of the flags.

@razalas: could you please change the colors?

Now that the Global Transmitter category is up and running - very popular - it's time to think about a unique category icon.

 

I was thinkingabout this idea: a cool three-legged lattice transmitter tower with lightning bolts at the top, on a globe.

 

Thoughts?

Leave it to me to be the outlier - I like the first one, since the guy wires are usually invisible! :) But majority of officers likes another one, so that works for me too :)

Thank you Razalas for taking the time to propose an icon for the new categories, so quickly!

 

For the hourglass, I find the colors a bit dull personally. I know it's not easy to make tiny icons ... I have suggestions, but if this is not possible, the first proposal, the clearer will be very well :)

Would it also be possible to place uprights on either side of the hourglass and a more round shape of the glass? Like this form for example:

I like both 1 AND 2 :) They are very well done!! But for me personally I like the more natural colored sand - so the tan one #1 is my favorite

I think #3 is PERFECT!! I will let my friends in the category know about the choices so they can weigh in too :)

 

We are so appreciative Razalas :)

 

The Australian flag is a very challenging banner to reproduce in such small size :)

 I guess I should have seen this sooner. Not sure how I missed this thread. Didn't know you guys were waiting on me for approval.

So here's my thoughts. Based on other existing benchmark categories, and following the icons they have (Canadian Benchmarks, Portugal Geodetic Points, and others for example) they seem to have the writing above the benchmark icon. I think it would be best if we try and follow that route just to be in the norm. If it's possible, the word "Latin" should be above the benchmark icon. Another option is to have both "Latin" and "America" on it as well. With "Latin" being above the benchmark and "America" being below. Not sure if having two spaces for these words would make the icon appear too small or not. If that's too much to ask, then the one razalas has in the previous reply would do just nicely. Either of these options would be alright with me.

 Thanks for your hard work razalas and wayfrog. Much appreciated! :rolleyes:

Again we need new category icons for the 2 newest categories.

Advertising Columns (this should be easy)

Watershed Markers and Monuments (maybe some sign like the white one of the example pictures in the category description)

So it's time for the pixel artists! I can't wait to see your proposals!

Is there no pixel artist out there? We still need two new icons.

I don't  know how to draw in pixels, but I would think that a sign with left and right arrows and maybe a stream on the sign  would give a good visual idea of the category.  Many divides are dry.
