      We need a different badge for "Task Of The Year" .....I remember we talked about that before and somebody came up with a lavender or rainbow wing but there may be no room for it..
      No way to work for wings after that, Takes all the fun out?
      That's why I never really try for the bonus until the others are done.
      What other people think of you is none of your business

      I took it over to the "Off Topic Thread" so we don't plug up the Task Page dickering with ideas.

      I might be able to work on something when I get some free time (between making my Christmas avatar and 2017's lucid gauge for my signature). Might be about time to redesign those anyway - the "DV" in the middle is still from our old logo from ~6 years ago.

      Gab did say something about how ~Dreamer~ had made some rainbow wings a while back. Maybe we could have bronze wings for Basic TOTM, silver for Advanced TOTM, gold for Bonus TOTM, and rainbow for TOTY. That's my suggestion, anyway.

      In all honesty, I think this is quite fair: it serves as motivator for completing the task as soon as possible

      Four different wing designs, one for each type (TotM Easy, TotM Adv, TotM Bonus, TotY) would be awesome, but I understand there could be room troubles...

      YES! It would be awesome, spellbee, if you could make us some wings! If you look closely, we do have silver and gold ones, although the color is not very pronounced. Maybe you can steal a wing image from DV and purrtyfy it, or you can make some brand spanking new cool wings.

      Not sure how practical this next idea of mine will be with regards to implementing. Coz it would have to be me doing it. But since many of us kinda feel, that if you do let's say and you get Basic wings, you get nothing for doing Basic 2 later on.

      So, how about wings for:
      (There would be B1 where the DV is now in the middle of wings)
      Basic 2 (B2 ... and so on)

      Advanced 2
      Bonus
      Task of the Year

      Hrm, so maybe wings should be bit more narrow, or different design all together, since now there is a potential to have 6 wings? Anybody has a better idea?

      Perhaps a wing classification. Basic, the silver wing with A or A/B in the middle.
      A a gold wing for advanced with A or A/B in the middle and so on reducing the number of wings..It might also create a winging nightmare..
      Also, As there are so few to deal with some badge for TOTY in the accomplishments pane might be looked at..
      Just a thought!

      I hope I said what I was trying to say

      Like TOTY1, TOTY2... for each completed task? So it shows progress as well, not just wings when completing them all?

      While keeping it as simple as possible, And that depends on whether you can simply drag and drop from a list or if you have to edit each one, That would be frightful.

      We would definitely need a set for every one of the TOTYs and have them all uploaded and ready to go.

      Threw these together in under an hour, so if we used them, I would want to increase the quality a bit (smooth out the animation, refine the colors, smooth the edges, etc.). But here's kind of the idea I had.

      Full-Size


      Basic
      Advanced
      Bonus
      TOTY (real version will have the rainbow animated)


      I'll be putting together some more designs for the community to vote on later, but I just wanted to put these up as kind of a "baseline" - a sort of modernized version of the current wings - before I go crazy with new ideas.

      Awesome so far, bee. I know you are preparing some more drafts, so we can all vote on the final design. Thank YOU so much for doing this, we wanted to do this for a long time!

      Awesome wings! There could be a "I" on the left and a "II" on the right for basic/advanced ones, so all combinations of achievements could be shown giving more incentive to continue working .
      Are only two wings possible over the avatar? It would be great to be able to see basic, advanced, bonus, and TOTY all at the same time .

      Spellbee had a good idea yesterday.

      The shield (or under the shield) for Basic and Advanced TOTM would have 2 stars in it. If you did one taks, one star would be filled in, and the second one would be only outline. If you did the second task as well (from same category, either Basic or Advanced), the both stars would be filled in.

      Same for Advanced - 2 stars.

      Bonus would have only one bigger star.

      TOTY would have 7 stars. Also filled or outlined based on how many tasks were completed and how many total tasks is there to do.

      So anybody could have 4 wings total. Each showing with filled stars, how many tasks from each category were completed.

      So exciting. I think this year I will attempt the TOTYs, even if they are kinda hard for me. But hey, until I pulled my eye out, I didn't know I can do that either, haha.

      Bonus would have only one bigger star.

      TOTY would have 7 stars. Also filled or outlined based on how many tasks were completed and how many total tasks is there to do.

      So anybody could have 4 wings total. Each showing with filled stars, how many tasks from each category were completed.

      So exciting. I think this year I will attempt the TOTYs, even if they are kinda hard for me. But hey, until I pulled my eye out, I didn't know I can do that either, haha.
      This sounds amazing

      Gotta work hard for filling all those stars and wings icon_smug.gif

      Srs, please VM or PM me, ping me in chat, anything that gives me red notification is a good thing. I prefer that to realizing days later that I have forgotten someone's wings. That's unforgivable!

      And I noticed you guys are saying for which wings you are asking for in the "join lucid task club" request. Saying Basic, Advanced or Bonus saves me tons of time researching which is which and I can just go straight to wings section.

      Now about the software. Sometimes user groups clash and colors or names are not given properly. I'm doing my best, but if I don't notice that something is screwy, please do let me know.

      Ok, now to something more pleasant. Do you guys have any idea how to promote TOTMs some more? I think this is great motivational tool, not to mention tons of fun. It would be awesome if more people joined. Any thoughts on this?

      You bite if i want to? Maybe we can try a testbite next time and he how it feels hm? Thanks anyway!

I only by accident discovered the 12 days of Christmas challenge which has been up for almost 2 weeks now just last night.
      That sounds very good. i would love to see more participants and more activity in those lucid tasks! and same for me. i didnt see the christmas challenge until some days ago. too bad

If you did the second task as well (from same category, either Basic or Advanced), the both stars would be filled in.

      Same for Advanced - 2 stars.

      Bonus would have only one bigger star.

      TOTY would have 7 stars. Also filled or outlined based on how many tasks were completed and how many total tasks is there to do.

      That sounds good! some fancy stars under those wings look good and would do the job without to much wings! it would be a nice to have a motivation to do both basic/advanced! The bonus would be one big star under the basic and advanced wings? i think that would be cool! And for me it would be a big motivation to start TOTY also because this time i just didnt started because i thought its too much of an effort but with partial goals it would be a big motivational boost!


      Thanks Spellbee for taking the designing under your wings! they look pretty good sofar!
