Right graphical people, here's a competiton for you. This is for something that the forum is well overdue, a favicon.

What the **** is a favicon Admin I hear you ask? This is (http://www.clickfire.com/favicon-tutorial/).

We need one, something unique and something easily identifiable with WFCForums. All that in a 16x16 image with only 16 colours?

Well it's worth a DVD of your choice for the winner.

Multiple entries are welcome, but unless there's one that me and the mods feel is good enough then there will be no winner ;)

Admin, any monkey could turn a regular image into a favicon. Is this really worthy of a competition?

Yes it is, because it's much harder to do than you say. Original work is always better than a program that automatically resizes pictures, usually to the detriment of that picture. So far Emmas no. 6 is my favorite, but I need something better yet :happy3:

I like the yellow and black background, stands out great. Not quite sure what's on top of it though. Is that an apple?

I thought it was an apple too! And is hectic's 2 chicks in a basket?

People are trying to get too much detail into too small a space.

Agreed. Less is more.

I think a 2 colour scheme will win this. Clue: I like the yellow black combo ;)

I think the old hornet logo should be used. If possible.

It's a hornet, but I can change it if you want.

Heres a bigger version of it.

I've found the hornet badge from the 70's but it doesn't look good when reduced in size

Could you put it up anyway? I found a good site that reduces its size and keeps a clear picture. Could work.

ok here is my poor attempt, not really sure what to put up as its such a small image, also i forgot my imageshack password so am having to upload it as an attachment as i cant be bothered to start another one tonight.

Locked and loaded. You may have to clear your internet cache to see it for the first time but it's definately there, and it's looking good. Once it's showing on the address bar you will see it on your favorites too.


Well it's worth a DVD of your choice for the winner.

I think we owe you a DVD Keano. Have a think and let me know.

I've only got it in my Favourites link at the moment, not showing in the corner of IE yet. Will clear some interweb files first.

I like the favicon a lot... BUT its very similar to the official site's icon - just slightly scewed

IMO ours looks a lot better than the official site because we don't have a background behind ours. Professional init.

I'd just like to add, that this looks very good, much better then the one on the official site in my opinion. Well done Keano.
