You're not mistaken, that's when I first thought of the idea.TrickWithAKnife wrote:I could be mistaken, but I think the idea came after I added something about feedback to my signature.
To be honest, I just wanted people to know I appreciate constructive criticism. That's all.
I'm not sure it's ironic since I asked for feedback including critique in the original post. And by the way, you're sexy. (But why doesn't the button link to a giant rule book defining exactly how sexy you are and under what conditions and wind direction I may call you sexy?)Greeny wrote:I wonder if you appreciate the irony of getting critiques to this idea. *flies away*
Cheers, thanks for that. My original plan was to attach the images to the post and then link back to them, allowing for the button to be modified once people added it, but I discovered you can't do that because the width of attachments can't be ascertained. Also, I'll get rid of the bigger button as you said.PyTom wrote:I think it's bad for us to have tons of people's sigs linking to a free photo host. That will lead to massive pain and database queries if the site goes down. I've added a new bbcode that displays a copy of the image hosted on this server.
Agreed. Concision and assent are important. Thanks for the input!PyTom wrote:Re: The actual rules - My current inclination is that less rules are almost always better than more rules, especially in cases like this were you have no actual way of enforcing the rules on other people. (This doesn't seem like something the admin team would bother to intervene in, unless it turned into incivility.) And it's immoral to try to impose rules on people who didn't agree to them - at best, you can make a polite request of them.
Regarding 1., I'm not sure the smallest button is a huge banner. (The one at the top of the OP isn't intended for signature use, it's just there so people have a full, lossless version to make an edit.) I can understand you thinking it a little cheesy, but I couldn't think of any way to word it while still keeping it's intended meaning clear and the button small. I chose to create a button because I didn't think the text alone would be taken to well.Jason wrote:1. I don't like the design because I believe a simple logo/symbol linking to this article may suffice, or variety in sizes where it doesn't show itself as a huge banner or interfere with other signature's design. Having the "Honest Critique" word in a sig is just too cheesy for me, so sorry (I mean, mine's cheesy already, then adding more cheese is just too much xD ).
2. I love the purpose of this, but at the same time, I can't listen to too many people otherwise the project may be delayed because of changes people may ask that I no longer feel that it's my team's project. I have to limit my ears to my friends for now.
As for 2., that's understandable, though I don't think this will cause a massive increase in the number of received critiques per person, but who knows. It's up to you.
@fleet: CheeryMoya has more or less said what I think too.
Also, I've updated the OP a little; removed the medium sized button and added PyTom's BBtag. I'll get around to posting some revised points and see what people think. Thanks for the replies so far everyone.
