You are right, moderators do not deserve our attention.

Time for the results!

First I want to say that this was a very successful contest. I am very impressed by the entries. And I am also impressed by the collaboration that took place - instead of people just posting their entries we had an ongoing exchange of ideas which made the final results even better.



I have chosen Alcibiades' work as the winning entry. Alci, I think you've done a really good job of matching the style and feel of the existing set and creating an icon that is both attractive and congruent. A couple of additional credits need to be mentioned here - to Adrius for being the first to suggest a hammer and to Stevie for coming up with the "M&M" solution to the word dilemma.

I also want to mention a couple of entries I've contemplated. I was tempted by Maurice's set - I like how the font matches HC and the moderator sword looks very cool. But unfortunately the other two icons did not have the same coolness. Galaad made a pretty nice icon, but in the end I thought that the hammer there is more of a weapon rather than a crafting hammer, so I've chosen Alci's version.



With the help of good title suggestions I've chosen "Shaper of Lore" as the title. Shaper goes together with the hammer image that was chosen. And as TDL accurately said these people are basically the creators of Lore.

So, big thanks to everyone who took part - both in graphic work and in coming up with ideas

We have one dilemma. Alci you're a moderator, so I can't give you the QP! To ensure that the QP doesn't go to waste, would you like to bestow your winning QP as an honorary "good effort" reward to another member of your choosing who took part in this contest?

As for the graphics:
- could you also make a version with M&M spaced out to M & M to see what it looks like?
- I think that the "admin" and "moderator" images you've proposed could improve the existing ones, but more tweaking is needed - could you make one with "MODERATOR" below the sword (and no HC) and one with "ADMIN" below the wand (and no HC)?

Congratulations.

I think there are more contributions that should be rewarded, if possible. As you said Val, it was mostly a joint effort than it was a competition

Congratulations, Alcibiades. I concur with Stevie on this one. As it is, I used the weapons he had posted . I personally feel the overall quality was pretty good and none of the contributions felt like quick or hastily done.

Also, while I realise that you've chosen Alci's version right now, do you have any plans for a (minor) overhaul to increase consistency in the forum design?

Yay, thanx! Here are some slightly modified versions as per your suggestions:








I think if I should choose someone to nominate for the QP it has to be Maurice because he's done a very extensive work with numerous different designs which he has put considerable work into. Also, I agree that credit goes to Adrius for the idea of the hammer and also TDL did excellent work with the fonts very early on which helped a lot.

Alci, can you maybe put some blood along the edge of mine, as though I just severed the head of a nefarious CoC-breaker.

Its sad you are going to change the moderators and admins weapon. They are good as they are.

And the "M&M" on the hammer... its pointless. It only take some space. There is no need of it. It ruins the logo....

While the hammer itself is pained in pretty different style then the sword and the staff. Also this is not a crafting hammer. Its handle is too long. The only crafting hammers that are so long are used for bringing down small walls, and this one has too small head for this kind of work. This is battle hammer, no doubt. The crafting hammers are looking much more ordinary then this.

Shaper of Lore (Might & Magic Official) status is now implemented. Shapers have no stars like mods & admin and get priveleges similar to members with high QP count. The first Shaper is BB_Eraya from the MMHO team. We should have H7 Shapers as well soon.

The moderator and admin icons have been updated. For the sake of preserving history I've saved the old images here:



One thing I've noticed is that my wand is not quite the same Alci, if you are able, can you restore the energy ball on my wand? The old one has a ball of energy, whereas the new one has more of a solid orb.

Aside from that i'm not planning to overhaul the icons any more right now. We've already made an unexpected improvement to the two old icons (although not everyone will agree, as always with any changes) and I have other development priorities.

As per Alci's nomination, a QP reward for good effort goes to Maurice, congratulations

I also think that Stevie has put quite a bit of positive input into the community lately with his contributions to the H7 Wiki, designs and ideas in this contest and in some other discussions, so a QP will be awarded to Stevie in the H7 Wiki thread

Yes I had to do the same. Is it that you must make the server send you the new cache to be able to view the images? Also, I think that the rank name feels odd bellow the image, whereas if it were above, it would feel like being underlined and I think I'd find that more visually appealing. It'd also position another text in between two images, the shield and the weapon, and I find that more balanced.

Thank you .

Even if my pick didn't win, I still got to learn some basic image editing skills and a new toy to do it with (Paint.net) .

Yeah, I had to change the inner orb to make up for the removed text, so I also changed the outer outline a bit, but here's a version with the original orb if you prefer that:

Thanks for the orb tweak, Alci

CTRL + F5 will force your browser to reload cached images. Otherwise it may take some time for new images to start showing up. But eventually they will update on their own for everyone.

We now have Three Shapers in our community: Kimmundi and Marzhin from MMH7 Team, and BB_Eraya from MMHO. Feel free to welcome them in their respective forums.

I think this development is an important step for our community and for Fan / Developer relationships in general, so thanks again to those who took part.

If there are any other officials who would like to be set up, feel free to contact me.
