Membership Medal Nominations - POST HERE

Recommended Posts

Congratulations Greg.
 
That medal is an honor - RichP, BillD and David Schultz are good company to be included with...   emteeth.gif
 
(I know Rich has "de-medaled" himself, if that is even a word, but him not having medals is ridiculous, especially the Technician and Mentor medals)
 
Congrats again - and thanks for helping anyone who asks...

Thanks Brian, that means a lot.
 
But, I'm not on the same level as any of them - they're veteran heavyweights and I'm just a scrawny upstart shadow boxing in the mirror.  ;)

I think that it would be great to have a BillD  Moded C-1 C-11 Medal as a tribute to Bill for those that have BillD mods in their C-1 and C-11 pre amps.

 

As the person suggesting this I would not expect to be granted this metal, but I do believe it is a way to keep Bill and his efforts in everyone's memory. Those who are new to the site probably do not realize Bill's contributions the way that the longer term members here do. 

 

Any thoughts?

 

Thanks.

This was brought up (I think) quite some time ago; I did give it a try, but couldn't come up with something recognizable and appropriate.

 

Here's the medals.psd (photoshop) file in case anyone else wants to take a wag.

 


 

Be aware that the design has to be minimalist (just enough detail to get the point across) or else it will devolve into a mash when resized (medal files are 60px by50px)

 

e.g.  A reasonable looking design, something like:  20130521162900100.png 
will not be recognizable when re-sized:   20130521163030719.png

Looks good Rich. If you could decrease the height of the amp plate make Bill's name same size as Mod, remove the dial or record weight respectfully. That way it could read Bill D Mod. Bill at the top, D in the middle and Mod at the bottom.

Yes, I tried that also; even with the entire 60 pixel width devoted to text saying BillD, with Mod underneath (two lines of text) it's unreadable at medallion size.
 
If there is to be a BillD medal, someone will have to come up with an idea that is recognizable at 60px width, which means very minimal design and no more than one or two characters of text
