I'll work on changing the forum to the new design tomorrow. Tonight I took the night to fix up all the new logos.

So here they are:

EDIT: I noticed afterward that this one wasnt the right size so I did it again. But I really dont think this logo is best as an icon. Image

I was playing around and got another set.. This one comes from the glider on the frontpage.

EDIT: Someone requested this icon to use in his skins. So I thought I would add it to the growing gallery of icons and pics.

Im not trying to claim that I made the actual logos. Im just doing the leg work to get them ready to be used else where. Its no problem though.

Nice work. :wink:

They're kind of odd sizes though. How did you make the large size? Any chance of a 128x128 one?

Love the new logo. 8) So modern and up to date.

I know it's recomended to un-install previous versions and re-boot, before up dating, I have never bothered and it's always been ok, :D until now. [-X

The quick launch icon did not update, until this was done. Otherwise no problem. :D

Dreamer: You mean the forum style? Yea I have to redo the forum style to once again match the rest of the site. That means redoing the current style. Its in progress. I just wish I knew before I spent the last month on this style that he was going to change it. :lol: But yes rest assured that Im working as we speak to get the new style to match the new site and logo.

bigC: I made the usual 16x16 and 24x24 the rest of the sizes were me taking the original and making them smaller or larger. Thats it. As for the 128x128. I have it Ill upload it later tonight.

And thanks all. Enjoy!

I updated the quicklaunch icon by deleting the old one and dragging the new one from the desktop to take it's place.

Well looks like the only reason my quick launch icon wasnt changing is because the shortcut "start in" path was set to the skins folder instead so the icon wouldnt change. I changed it to the root avant folder and the icon changed immediately.. :roll:

Update: Here ya go bigC: Image

Being that big its hard to keep it looking sharp. Maybe someone else can do it alittle better than I did.

No, I mean the Avant skin - tooblar buttons, back/forward/up buttons with such a style, perhaps also the rest icons. I like silver-glassy icons, especially on dark (black) background.

Thanks Matt.

Actually to update your shortcut icons all you needed to do was clear your icon cache. I cleared mine with Icontweaker.

Your welcome, big..

Update: Btw, I've finished up integrating the new design of the site with the board. It was surprisingly easier than I thought it would be. Now I can go back to finalizing the style as the current one was always just a beta. You will see alot of improvements when it gets uploaded. But, seeing the new header on the forum makes it look alittle weird so I might have to make some changes.

Your first one the transparent one looks alittle better than mine. But it isnt 128x128.

It 120x128 as he said. It is easy to add 4 pixels to each side if you want.

Well, I realize that doc. But it being 120x128 didnt just take 8 pixels of blank space away. It took part of the logo away. Thats what I meant.
