New Forum Avatars

Postby dlf_kenm » Fri Feb 10, 2017 2:29 pm

If you like to work with images and create avatars, the DLF Forum could really use you help!

As many of you know, the forum has a selection of default avatars available for use by new and existing members. These avatars can be seen if you go to User Profile / Edit Profile / Edit avatar and choose Gallery Avatar. From there you can select from a variety logos and av's. These avatars date back to the beginnings of this forum and have not been updated since. It's really time these are replaced with newer, nicer images.

If you are interested in helping improve the forum, and creating some resources which will be enjoyed by forum visitors for another ten years (or more), we would welcome your assistance! We'd love to have a new set of NFL Team logos, a new set of NCAA Team logos, some more player (NFL & NCAA) player photos, and even other miscellaneous images that you'd like to create share. There are a few guidelines to consider when creating these images.
  • Images must be good quality - clear, sharp, etc.
  • Images must be 125 x 125 in size (or smaller, but let's try to standardize on this size)
  • Must be in .png, .jpg or .gif file format
  • No pornographic, sexual, racist, or otherwise inappropriate images will be accepted
  • Do not delete anyone else's submitted images
  • All avatars will be subject to use at the discretion of the DLF Mod Team and ownership

Once you have created your images they can be uploaded to the following shared google drive;

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/ ... sp=sharing

Please place your images in the appropriate folder. If you are creating a set of themed avatars, feel free to create a new folder to house those avatars.

Thanks to any and all for helping out. I have literally been meaning to update these for the past five or more years, but never quite get to it. So this is your chance to kill some time in the slowest part of our year by helping improve this forum for the many generations of dynasty degenerates to follow. Thank you all, please share any questions here.

I uploaded 11 QB avi's I designed for the forum. Will do more and other positions as I have time in between other projects. If these work for you that is....

Here's a few examples:

I'll use the same template on all of them so there's some uniformity.
I just uploaded:
Rodgers (2 versions)
Ryan
Luck
Mariota
Carr
Winston
Roethlisberger
Stafford
Wentz
Prescott

Thank Mark! If you get some free time, maybe you could do an Emmitt Smith avatar? :-)

You're welcome! I uploaded 19 avi's. The QBs above and some Legends. Barry, Calvin, Emmitt, Rice, Montana, Fouts, Elway. I'll be busy with MFL stuff once they go back live but I'll add some current and legend WRs, RBs and TE's as i have time. I just pounded out some today because i had some downtime with MFL being down. I didn't really know whether to make different files... Im not real familiar with google drive. But you might want to have separate folders by position or legends/current players.

If someone would be willing to knock out some high quality, up to date NFL Team Logos, I'd be super appreciative. Free year of DLF thankful.

Ditto NCAA logos...

Thanks!
