In the useless crap category, today we're announcing the introduction of fan badges! What's that you ask? Well, look to your left. It's kinda like a merit badge, but instead of a sash it appears under your profile whenever you post. Since we can no longer offer usergroups for fans here, we thought this would be a nice replacement. So, here's what you need to know about them.
Who or what can have a badge?
Since this is essentially a replacement of sorts for usergroups, pretty much any artist that has their own thread in this board can have a user banner. Yes, this means you can have a Ayumi badge or even a Big Bang badge. It does not have to be specifically J-pop. It can be any musical artist. It doesn't even have to be a musician. It can be a movie or a TV show, a video game series, a tech company, a sports team, etc. It just has to be something in the realm of fandom.
What should it look like?
A banner must be exactly 100 pixels in width and 40 pixels in height. It cannot be larger or smaller than that. A typical banner should have an image of the artist or thing for which it is depicting. All text can either be the artist's name, their nickname, a logo, or a nickname for fans of the relevant entity. Please do not use a vulgar image for your banner, keep it clean.
How do I get one?
You can select any of the ones displayed in this post. Once you have found one you want, all you have to do is reply to this topic with the badge you want. A mod will do the rest.
What if what I want doesn't have a badge?
Then you are free to make one or request that someone make one for you. It would be great if fans got together in their threads to decide on which image should be used since it will be representative of all of you. However, anyone is free to make one if no one else takes the initiative.
Can I just make a badge and use it for myself?
No, all badges must be approved by a moderator and be useable by all members of this board. You cannot have your own unique one. All approved badges will appear in this first post.
Can I still have a user title if I use a banner?
No, your profile is a limited space and as to not make your profile too distracting to our members we ask that you either use a banner or a title, not both.
Where can I host my badge?
Your yuku account provides you with 30MB of free space to upload images. All you have to do is create a photo album in your images, upload your badge and then copy its url and post it here.
