      Question Badges for the Monthly Tasks

      The monthly tasks were more fun when we had special badges designed for each specific task.

      It seems like there are so many good artists here, who can work so quickly, that someone could make those for us if only they were willing, and perhaps bribed.

      I haven't asked Seeker about this, but maybe whoever volunteers to do the badges for the next month could learn about the tasks early, by having access to the Task of the Month Club thread, where the new tasks are discussed and decided upon. That way they could have the badges ready in time for the new month, and also they would get a head-start on the next month's task, a huge advantage...that's so tempting, isn't it? Maybe also a special thank-you post could be made in that thread, giving the artist the credit that they deserve, and further inspiring people when they see the beautiful badges they will be trying to earn. How can you pass up this wonderful opportunity? Assuming Seeker agrees, that is.

      Think of the glory! Your work preserved for posterity, in the form of a prestigious Badge of the Month! The respect, admiration, and envy of your fellow DVers!

      (Come on, I know it would take some of you like 2 seconds to do it! It doesn't have to be a masterpiece, just a little drawing.)

      I was thinking about doing this too, only need to figure a few more things out for GIMP operation. But, yes, I miss the old custom wings. These new generic ones are lame and so... generic. And lame.

      OK, I don't know what you're talking about, but fix that Gimpy thing up and do it!

      It doesn't have to be the same person every month; we could put out a reminder, and whoever feels like it then could do it.

      So I guess now we are asking for volunteers for the November tasks, which are probably already decided. If anyone wants to do it, I'll ask Seeker if you can get into the thread and get a head-start.

      GIMP is a free "Photoshop-like" software. It's for poor folk like me, who don't care to spend a million bucks for software that's only a little more (considering the price) feature-laden.

      And I bet people would be more motivated to do/complete the tasks if there was a unique badge in it for them.

      Yea, probably, because they feel even more special than just getting a uniform badge.

      Good idea, Moonbeam A cool dynamic badge could definitely increase incentive to do the tasks.

      I'm sure Seeker and Aphius would be okay with it, so let's see what they think

      Now that's what I was looking for!

      OK, let's do it.

      Oh, Hi Burns, you got here just ahead of me--I don't think Seeker will mind, do you? I'll PM him.

      Great idea!

      OK, I'd like to run this as a friendly competition. Moonbeam suggested permanent membership to the lucid task club in her PM to me, which I think is an excellant idea. I'm looking for at least a 6 month committment from someone on this, preferably one year, so if you are really busy IRL and this will put a strain on you, don't commit.

      Soooo......

      Let's see some samples, we will vote on the Artist we like best. It's my opinion that we need one Artist to head this up, he may subcontract if he wishes.

      Here are a couple of "Lucid Task Examples" Let's see what you can do with them.

      Basic task: Go fishing, doesn't count unless you catch something.

      Advanced task: Grow a third leg and run in a marathon.
      you must be the change you wish to see in the world...

      I put this is the Task of the Month Club but was told to take it here:

      Well, I was bored at work and came up with these images: I decided to put a stylized DV in the middle.

      Basic Task:


      Advanced Task:


      Both:


      I can make the wing flapping more subtle or dramatic if you'd like.

      Hmm i like those a lot... I would say it would look a bit cooler if the flapping was more dramatic... (as you suggested)

      Wonderful, but on the "both" badge, I can barely notice a difference. The gold flickers so fast one needs to squint to take notice that the gold is there to begin with.

      I agree. They are cool, but perhaps you could mix the gold and silver feathers if you know what I mean. Like making every second feather gold and the others silver, if that will make it more "exotic" and special. Just a suggestion

      Folks, I'm probably not going to create a "Both" group anytime soon.
