Sorry, Jane. I forgot to send a reply. It's on the way.

(Hope there are no regulations here about "necroing" old threads without a license.)

I'm a big fan of favicons!  I have a tendency to hyperlink so much that I wanna stick multiple links into a single word.  The best way to handle that is with some sort of a submenu / popup, but that isn't feasible on things like forums, so I end up adding text-based mock-icons in square brackets, like:

    Mary J. Ruwart [G+] [FB] [IN] [WP] [AMZN]

Doesn't this look better: 

    Mary J. Ruwart



Now, about the current NH Underground favicon... 

You know I cannot tell a lie...

It stinks like a week-old brown taco!

Which, coincidentally, is also how it looks.

Can't some of the graphics wizards here do better?

A favicon should be instantly recognizable, but it doesn't have to make perfect sense.  Not all images look good shrunk down to 16x16 pixels, so it has to be very readable.  A London Underground logo imitation also won't look good - you won't even be able to fit the letters "NH".

Some white images (like a Guy Fawkes / V for Vendetta mask) also become unrecognizable.  Black and gold are obvious colors to use.

But how to identify this site?...   Hmmm...  How about: 

It's from the emoticons collection, but scaled down in size.  It could be edited to look better with this scaling, and to make the pitchfork more prominent.

I may be out of touch, but this emoticon definitely makes me think of Russell and this forum!

Actually there is.  Anybody with negative Karma is not allowed to necro an ancient thread.

Didn't you recently post a message about how you lied abut your location and moving to NH?

Everyone else thinks it looks like a porcupine.
Why do you need to be so rude and insulting?

Instead of demanding someone else do the work to provide something you find more acceptable, why don't you do it?

If this were my forum you would be banned as a troll.

I've told the lie to benefit FSP.  And then I couldn't live with the lie, because I am truthful about everything else, and confessed it freely.


Why do you need to be so rude and insulting?

I seem to need to be honest and constructive, as well as humorous.  Doesn't it look like a brown taco?

Demanding?  I am providing constructive advice.  And I did suggest an alternative.

No good deed goes unpunished...

You are being insulting for no constructive purpose what-so-ever.  People like you are the reason why I'm not in NH.  No one in NJ has ever called me a "troll"!

And if you were to analyze the meaning of the word "troll" logically, and look at all of my contributions to libertarian causes over the last 7 years, you would see that I am the polar opposite.

No.  (Destiny's Bridge is a metaphoric title that predates my involvement.)

Now, back to favicons.

I just tried to be helpful - to make NH Underground look better in everybody's bookmarks menu / etc.  If not, please disregard.

You know what is funny
I never saw this thread before today. :-)
You would have to seriously sweet talk Kat (into doing any changes to this forum) or help her spread Bible verses on Facebook.

In other news today, Jerry, perhaps channeling Lloyd, leapt into front runner status for the "new curmudgeon".  My previous doubts about his ability to handle the job appear to be unfounded.    ;D

You made Becky's day, thanks for the comic relief... we needed it.

Thanks to Jerry "the New and Improved Curmudgeon" for the hops plants, Jim called to say you gave them to him... super  8)  :)
