    Default [Decision] Troy Badges Competition

    I propose that we hold a competition like in the days of yore and select new badges to celebrate the release of Troy. This would require a lot of effort from Content Staff so I'm willing to put my money where my mouth is and do all the work if necessary. I've already done a preview of an initial set of badges to give everyone an idea of what we could have. The community will vote on the badges and select which set they prefer.

    Here is an example (Courtesy of Flinn) of how a possible competition could be set up.

    I'd say that 1 month for the 1st submission is due, since it will give people time to notice the competition and possibly do minor modifications based on incoming suggestions, then we can have 2 weeks for the first round of vote, then 2 weeks more for the second submission (everything is already decided) and 2 weeks more for the final vote. Consider another 2 weeks of possible delays, things coming in weekend, etc. If we want to do the things properly, it will need 3 months.. going with one single turn will probably reduce the total time to 2 months.
    Below you can see an example of the set I created.


    Artifex (Homer) -


    Citizen (Achilles) -


    Civitate (Menelaus) -


    Content Artist (Artemis) -

    Content Director (Helen of Troy) -


    Content Staff (Paris) -


    Hexagon Council Administrator (Apollo) -


    And finally, here is what one of them would look like in action,

    Easy to support as a spectator. Thank you for your efforts Akar. It’s nice to see a proof to the concept.

    Ah, that time again already? Feels like just yesterday that we got our Three Kingdoms ones. Well, if the artsy folks here don't mind knocking up a new set of badges every year, I'm down for a change, keeps things fresh. Plus, as gorgeous as our current ones are, they don't really go with the theme I use here And, you know, that's important to me for whatever reason.

    I do like my funny chinese Tribune hat, but I'll certainly enjoy being a greek statue as well. Go for it. Also, nice "proof of concept" that already did the whole work, Akar.

    EDIT: Given that Paris makes the fatal judgement, he should probably be used for Tribunes, but, God, I hate Paris, so please don't. Maybe Odysseus/Ulisses instead?

    I think the content staff badge is Paris.

    I know, my post lacked an "actually" or "instead". You could still use other personnages for Content, maybe Phidias? (though he's not from the Ilias)

    Still, as I said, I detest the Paris character, so please don't use him for Tribunes.

    I've just seen that Akar listed Helen as Helen of Troy. This is an outrage. There must be war!

    On another note, Kalchas, the seer, or Nestor, the oldest of the Achaean generals, may be viable choices for Tribunes/Magistrates.

    Agamemnon or Priam? I know Akar was looking for good statues of either to use. Nestor might also be a good choice. For the praefecti, only Hector will do.

    Why? Will their lifeless bodies be dragged around the walls of the Curia behind a chariot?

    Until I saw the images for a new set of badges today, I really liked the R2TW themed badges.

    I couldn't help, but noticed that Akar forgot to add a moderator's badge to the OP.

    The hard part is to find a high quality picture of a decent quality marble statue or bust of the person. I wanted to use those but I couldn't find any marble busts of Priam or Agememnon. Any suggestions you guys have for other characters to use are welcome though, especially if you can throw in a nice picture with it like Iskar did above. I've got to make one for each of the ones on this page (except the modding staff).

    Either the Citizen or the Civitate badge has the image that the Moderator's badge could (should IMO) have as both are similiar to a soldier and having a soldier as an image for the moderator's badge is fitting.

    In case you didn't know, but the image for the hex badge are pretty much the same as the Modding Staff Director badge had in the R2TW themed badges.


    EDIT: How about having an image for Cicero for either the Citizen or the Civitate badge?

    Should Homer not be the patron for civitate (as man of many words) instead of artifex?

    For Artifex Odysseus is more fitting, as he had the idea for the creation of the horse.

    Support, would expect a graphics contest to choose the new style.
