I'm the weirdo who purchased overtext solely for the purpose of stating that Kaffedrake's overtext makes me feel melancholy.

Personally, I don't think the partial signs in the corners help the overall look of the microbadge (and may instead be distracting). I'm not familiar with the source material though, so they may service a function that I'm unaware of.

Also, I prefer the more saturated colors of the earlier version. I would consider refining the outside edge of the top curve of the 'S' though.

Still wanted to do more than just the S, so I tried adding a tiny M and PI to the corners. It didn't really work. Then I just took the gradients of the Mercs and PIs boxes and used those to flank the S to make it more visually interesting. Thoughts?

Option 4 is more interesting than Option 3. Option 3 is still a better choice.

This would kill the beauty of the S, yet have you considered a full MSPE grid of letters, perhaps with a dot in the middle for the ampersand?

Well, based on everything, I think it's poll time. We have the basic S, the S with sidebars (colors brightened for balance), and a new idea I had.

I really hope one of these is good; I want to avoid a plain-text MS&PI.

Try the M from "mercenaries", placed upright in a box with a snazzy gradient?

I admit I am tempted to do one M, one S, and one PI.

D'oh.

Anyway, added it to the game page, since Kevin never bothered. Which is why I did it in the first place.

Not sure when it became a thing to add the badges to the game pages. Since it's not exactly mandatory, I'm sure there are tons of badges that aren't on the game page

Mandatory or not, I've never understood why you wouldn't put the badge there.

You can customize the view of the game pages: /item/editview/rpg/10771

Edit: Sorry, I didn't understand you were talking about the wiki.

Even if I could/would change the page layout for me, this wouldn't make the badges more visible to other geeks.

Not terribly subtle, but neither were the 70s.

Because I'm a glutton for some serious punishment, I made some management decisions (I'm already regretting this, just so you know ). I decided that we won't in the future start a new folder for each individual game for microbadges. Instead, I've started the project of adding folders from A - Z and slowly by slowly moving the existing ones into those folders. This will take me a very long time, as it's all manual work from creating the new folder to moving each badges individually into that folder and then deleting the old folder. So please be patient with the chaos that will be there for a while.

Question for English speaking people: should I file games that start with 'a' under 'A' or the first letter of the first actual word? E.g. 'A Penny for Your Thought', would it go under 'A' or 'P'? Thanks
