Re: Suggest Color
If the background is white without a border then transparency is needed, otherwise it looks amateurish when displayed on a non-white background. A good example is Wikipedia. Pandora is almost the same but looks much better because the background is off-white and there's a border.

Re: Now something completely different.
Great idea, but there's too much detail for the size.

Re: Now something completely different.
I did a hand-of-God one too, but I decided that no-one would know what it was unless they knew what it was.

I see what you mean.

I'm not an artsy person and don't have the proper tools. If someone wants to take it and clean it up I have no objection.

Dinner calls
That small it really sucks.

Wait... just have faith that is the hand of God?

Off to dine. My wine awaits.

Wait, wait... one more.

20x20 and, I hope, better detail.

I think it looks more like the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Re: Now something completely different.
It's automatically scaled to 16x16, so the actual size doesn't matter as long as it's square. If it's not square it'll get scaled to be square.

Relying on automatic scaling will almost certainly make it look bad though.

The hand looks good but the DNA looks like the checked background you get in photoshop when you have no image, so it looks like it has been cropped off.

Hi all,

I'm going to set the favicon back to the first EvC one, I'll try one of the other EvC's tonight, but I don't think EvC is it. It's the exactly correct information, but as an identifying icon it lacks something. The hand of God with DNA has that something but probably can't be done at that scale because too often it wouldn't be recognizable unless someone told you what it was.

I wonder if a frontal of a galaxy would look any good:

Re: Whatcha think?
Darn, can't tell what it is. Thanks for trying. I just don't have access to my normal toolset while at work, so I'm limited in what I can do here. I can't easily upload images to the website during the day to see how it would actually look, but in this case I don't think it's necessary.

I wonder how this would look:
