Multiple realm flags?
« Topic Start: March 09, 2011, 04:47:40 PM »
It'd be nice if we could set up multiple realm flags, to represent all the realms we play in (up to 4). Not sure if this is at all possible though.

Signature rather than avatar?

Or just replace the "Personal word" bit with an link to the family page of the player?

On the User Summary page there's a way for you to enter your player ID, which will autocreate a link to your game family page. You can also enter a wiki page that will then create a link to whatever wiki page you want, such as your wiki userpage, or your wiki family page. Other people can access those links from your forum user profile.
If at first you don't succeed, don't take up skydiving.

If only they're accessible from posts. ;)

Meh, click the link. It's not like it's all that hard. :P

Not that I'm objecting to making them visible on the post. But still. It's not that hard to click the username.

you could just use paint to put all your realm banners together as a avatar image if that is what you want.
Previously of the De-Legro Family
Now of representation unknown.

That's what I'm talking about, good work De-Legro.  I love paint too! :D

Would putting all of them into one avatar even be visible? I mean, if one has a lot of realms and the maximum avatar size is, what, 100x100 pixels? It might be interesting...

Realm icons, those used on the dynamic map, are only 24x24. If Avatars are limited to 100x100 (just using Artemesia's guess, because I don't know either) then that's 16 realm icons you could put in one avatar. And realm icons are pretty distinct. Most players could probably identify every icon on their island, and probably quite a few from other islands.

Umm... doesn't Dominic mean the little icons to the right that are pretty tiny already?

Or left. I don't know exactly how many icons can be set per row/column, but I figured 3x3 (72x72 pixels I think?) is a good conservative estimate. I suppose some of us have been in more than 9 realms though, so I guess next will be a 4x4 (96x96 pixels) test. I don't think I've been in 16 realms though.

What I did is use the img code to display realm banners in my signature, interchangeable at pretty much anytime. I can go into detail if anyone wants to know exactly how to do it.

Well I found out that the maximum avatar size is less than 96x96, and the image gets resized to...the maximum allowed size?
