Well I have one question.

 

For userbars. We should use OC Font? because 3 or 4 entries used that and another user used a random font.

I think choice is up to you. The OCC font is provided if you want it, but I don't think you're required to use it.

 

FWIW, I really like flareback's white 1px border. I know that with filesizes this small every pixel counts but I think a distinct border makes a big difference. They really stand out on the page. I think it makes the difference between just some pic in your sig vs. a true userbar/sig image.

*Looks at Verran's sig image*

 

hmm, I wonder why? :lol:

 

As for fonts, I agree, use whatever you think is most suitable.

From a graphical point of view, it is probably better to differentiate for the "member type" font (and I probably wouldn't pick another "title" font either).

:lol: Yeah, I realized that shortly after making the post... but I figure it's still true, even if it is a bit biased :P

I just posted my entry... it leans more to the basic (I like to think minimalistic) level. :P

 

If anyone would like to take 'em and make them better, have at it. You can download the master file (*.xcf) here.

I didn't know we needed a "beefcake" entry. who gets to use that one anyway?
