Kissu is turning three years old in a few weeks!
For some fresh air, let's have a contest to change the thumbnail images for various files or spoilers. A contest with no prize other than your peers' acknowledgement! Wow!
I figure that around December we'll do some voting to see what people prefer, but it may end up being obvious and not needed.

Thumbnail candidates:
-Audio File
-Archive File
-Flash File
-Spoiler (Story)
-Spoiler (NSFW)
-File Deleted

 No.8685

File:Untitled-1.png (80.57 KB,255x255)

Image Requirements
-255x255 pixel dimensions
-static (not animated)
-readable text indicating its filetype or spoiler nature
-culturally appropriate to kissu

It does not need to be related to Moon Phase, but keep in mind it's something people will be looking at for a while so it should have staying power.

Let's make some stuff!

Well, I didn't want to just say "2D Japanese stuff" because it's possible there's other things that will fit, but that's probably the most likely outcome. Yes, that would work.

With Mewkledreamy some simple editing might need to be done to increase the contrast, or maybe it's just me.

These are the current images and man, we've been overdue for this.
The NSFW is good because obviously you know it's NSFW, and the other spoiler one may not be very descriptive but you can easily associate it with story spoilers since a moon and question mark is easy to immediately recognize in your memory. It's hard to mistake the zip image for anything other than an archive file, too.
The others are a bit more nebulous (or boring in case of file deleted) and that's something we can fix.

Is it absolutely necessary?

 No.8777

>>8776
Well, is there any indication that that image there is connected to an archive file? People can maybe infer it and I'm pretty sure I've seen an imageboard use a similar image, but it's not obvious.
Text also adds a personal touch so it isn't just lifted straight from an artist.

That's a nice font. What is it called?

 No.8806

Going to add text to a 1000x1000 image, which would be better:
1. writing the text in 1000x1000 then resizing to 255x255
2. resizing to 255x255 then writing the text on that
3. others

 No.8807

>>8806
whichever comes out less blurry. I wouldn't know which because I'm not a graphic designer

 No.8808

>>8806
Depends on the font. If it's a thin font, the blurring that occurs with downscaling might make it hard to read. If it's a bold, thick one, it might be fine to downscale the text. That said, my intuition says that putting the text on when it's 255x255 would look best.

The plan is that we'll have a soft cutoff for submissions on December 3rd.

Over the month we'll work out some ways to decide what people like best. The plan is to have community approved replacements for what exists. An idea is multiple expiring /poll/s that will have every submission for each category.
