      I note that in addition to re-textured pins and sigpics we also have a favicon for the website.

      We’re a serious organisation now!!

      Thanks, not happy with the favicon yet.  Will redo it soon.

      Perhaps a simplified version of the “winged sword” as favicon? – Might or might not work – I understand you don’t have a lot of pixels to work with!

      I tried it, it looked pretty bad, too much detail.

      The one we previously had looked like Carrot Top on a bad hair day.

      I see what you mean.  This next suggestion is very C=64 / Amiga, but if it was me with that graphic, i’d try for something very minimalist:

      • Sword blade thin, straight down (3px wide, don’t anti-alias).  Middle line 1-2px longer to give impression of sword point.
      • Go for much simplified wings and snakes:
        • Something like < > or  for the snakes
        • Something like \ / (maybe a bit fatter) for the wings
      • So, its obviously stylised, but you get the gist of it, without trying for too much detail

      Its that or heavily anti alias the AI so it doesnt look so muddy

      I updated it again, I think it looks better and closer to where it should be opinions welcome.

      Quickdraw McGraw!

      That’s almost there!

      I’d halve the thickness of the blade and call it done 😀

      That is one pixel wide, that is as thin as it goes.

      Fixed it again, some ragged pixels around there making it look more like antlers.

      My eyes are either a lot better or a lot worse than I think they are.

      Either way, that’s a really good facsimile of the winged sword emblem.

      If we ever catch up in person, I owe you a beverage of your choice 🙂

      (Edit: I see what’s going on – in firefox, when this site is not the active tab, the favicon looks farking fantastic.  When the tab is active, I see the anti-aliasing around the blade and the blade turns the colour of the tab :-S  )
