I mean no offence to whoever made the current supporter/staff ranks but I don't like them as much as the old ones. It'd be quite nice to return to our previous ones IMO.

What do you think?

I agree with you Zenus. I prefered the older style of PC image ranks :)

The Supporter ones are ok but I think some of the Moderator ones look quite blurry.

I don't mind the Supporter ones as much :3 The staff ones...eh.

Personally, I'd like to be able to customize mine like some of the staff customize theirs, but... XD

That should totally be a Tier 6 Supporter thing.

I don't mind either, overall. So I don't care if they stay the same or not XD

Disable them then. Or get it removed.
It's not such a big deal. They could be a lot worse, and I for one like the new style.
No point in bawwing over 1/50th of your screen. Bars = 102px × 22px Screen (guess) 1280px x 800 or wtv.

I'm not saying I want to go as far as having them disabled or that they annoy me, I'm just saying I prefer the old ranks and I'd be pleased to see them back.

I actually prefer the new ones by a little, they both looked nice, and I don't see any problem with them really... =/ They stand out a lot and look clear in my opinion.

Also I like them so much more than the old gross old gross old... gross ones.

Newsflash: There is a problem on PokeCommunity's Supporter rank images. Guess what? I like the old ones better. You heard that right.

Seriously, I like the older ones better. (And my screen is 800x600, LOL - To Abnegation)

I don't have an issue with the new rank images. They all look somewhat fine to me. Although, Roman Numerals would have been more flashy than numbers 1-5 for the Supporter ranks.

Ooka

I dunno, they seem more up to the new graphic design standards to me. Nicely colored, soft text, a little glow from the top but not enough to make it horrendous. I like them quite a bit. :P

QFT. You guys make it out that I have a problem with the new ranks. I don't; I'm simply saying I like the old ones more and would like to see them back.

Newsflash: ...

Anyways, I think they look fine, and personally I like the older ones better. They might've been more in-your-face, but I think they had more clarity, I suppose.

The new ones seem blurry to me. Like...too detailed to me. Plus, the old ones had that cool border.

What if we had an option in the UCP where we could choose the style of supporter/staff badges?
Like, considering I prefer the old, it'd be good for me and those others who prefer the older ones, and the new ones could just be the default for new members. Good idea?

lol newsflashes. This is like the funniest noob attack ever.

The new ones are something new, it's nice to have a change after a long while.
They're more lighter gradient is prettier, wouldn't you agree?

I guess the fact is that it only boils down to opinion in the end. Some people like these ones:

Some mods liked this concept:

Or even our originals:

You can never really have a consistent opinion, but that's why we work to appease most of the people since realistically not everyone can be impressed. :P

So next time I work on the ranks, I'll try a bit harder to satisfy as many people as possible.

Firstly, to everyone who said "Newsflash..." is actually an idiot. If you think that is a news flash, you need to watch a hell of a lot more 'actual' news.

Secondly, I don't really mind them at all.
It isn't really going to affect the way I view on the forum.
They are fine and I think they should just be left alone till the next wave are made.

Wow, so um, I'm automatically declared as an idiot for saying a word? Nice reasoning.

Anyways, commenting on a post that matters, I personally think

The only one of them I don't like is the Moderator one. It just seems particularly blurry. The Staff Admin, Assistant Admin, and the originals are all nice IMO. But I agree with what someone said in one of the above posts about possibly having an option in the UCP with a choice of which design you'd like to use.

Nica Flash:

Question; Why would you bother having a choice in the usercp though? It's just a userbar. It's similar to which supporter colour you'd choose, and whether there could be an option between two. Although this wouldn't confuse people much, some consistancy as far as supporters go would be nice. o3o

Also, fun fact, we're supporters. Therefore, something as trivial as badges shouldn't really matter. Then again, most of you totally are supporters because you wanted to keep PC running, rather than the perks. :D Although I hated them at first, soon after I liked them and really... idk, we should all deal with the change. It's not like we've lost supporter badges all together. How would it be like without badges, coloured usernames, perks? Yeah, it'd suck for a lot of you.

In conclusion, my point is that the badges have changed, there is no need for a choice between the two... and hey, notice how no staff (besides Jake), have actually objected to it? It's the supporter perk thing all over again imo. XD;

Oh and note, I'm just comparing here... meaning this situation may not necessarily be intended to be similar to other supporter perk debates, but... it seems it.

Yes I agree with Hakeen. Deal with the change or so this quote says "Be the change you want the world to be". I don't really mind if the style of the badges changed. Yes us PC supporters want to keep PC a clean community. And for your sake why must it matter?. The new style of these badges actually look nice. Consider this a good thing. Some forum's don't even have these kind of things. So, just be lucky. Better than nothing right?.

patch.
October 29th, 2009, 06:18 AM
I actually find the new badges a lot glossier than previous ones, so I see no real need to revert. I become a Supporter to support PC so it can stay; I can clearly see you all did that, too.

I hated the new ranks at first but now they seem to have grown on me. So much to the extent that I prefer them to the old ones. Shows how much first impressions count eh?

Guys, these new rank bars have been in discussion since, like, the start of summer and just now finally got approved by the majority of the higher staff to be put into use.

Deal with the change. You'll learn to like it.
After all, you won't have much of a choice.

The reason behind the notion that it ever should change from the original in the first place is something I'd be interested to know though.
Change for the sake of itself is a waste of time, after all; although I've noticed a tendancy for the newer bars to become clearer.

I strongly disagree. Quoth the Hirogen:
Species that don't change, die.
We're always looking for ways to improve and change and grow PC, even if it means "fixing things that aren't broken." If we left well-enough alone, the forums would be a very, very, very different place than they are today.

Well, I like the new rank buttons.

As a matter of fact I love them. Especially because they are nicely combined for supporter-staff members. I totally thought having two badges looked yucky, and that always did slightly bug me, I liked the animated ones too but not everyone of the supporter-staff members had 'em.

They're fine the way they are, and if they ever change, I trust the staff will come up with something everyone can enjoy. They're awesome like that :)

Although I do like the roman numeral thing though.
