I'm thinking that the skinnier ribbons might be the better choice just for the simple fact that they don't take up as much room. With the ribbons you can get around 7-8 across the sig and 15 rows.

With the bigger ones like those you'll get 10 across the width but only 7 height wise. Also, something that size would start getting in the way of your sig a lot quicker.

Now i'm not saying it doesn't look good because I like the idea, I'm just trying to have a minimal impact on the sig area.

it can be compacted etc. since there's quite some unused space nor are they space optimized.

I think the first set looks better personally.
I would recomend this though, have the rank bars over the base picture, rather than along side it, so the overall thing is the same size nomatter the rank.

IE: Image

And no offence neliz, but those look aweful.
You need to at least keep them within the standard 'medal' size that has been used unoffcially for a good couple of years for verious reasons.

Not as such, but a 'standard' size for this kinda thing has developed over the years, and I think it's probably a good idea to stick to it. Especilly if we have to resort to adding them to the existing sig image (as I suspect we will have to in the end).

At a quick glance, those look too much alike, or it could just be my monitor. Looks like the brown/bronze could use just a little bit more lightening up.

The difference between the the 1st and 3rd is only 6 pixels so the difference on a sig bar would't even be the size of another ribbon, so I don't think it would be that big of an issue. Plus moving them in cover's up the ribbon art. But, if you guys/gals want them moved in I can do that easily.

I don't think we necessarily need one for the finder. But, definitely one for the Champion.

Unless there are objections those ribbons are perfect for the additional achievements (although I don't see the difference betweeh the Matrix ribbons). The finder ribbon is for story elements as their team will have significant writing behind them.

For the placement (participant,1,2,3) could a generic padding put put to the left of the image that's filled by the level achieved? It would standardize the size and clearly indicate placement.

One has a yellow border.

I thought the gold/silver/bronze would indicate that. I don't want to add too much to the width as it will begin affecting the ribbon width quite a bit. I can move the "bars" onto the art itself if that would help in standardizing the sizes. And, if we stay with this standard we'll all know who was in first/second/third by default of design.

To be honest, I dont see any problem with part of the picture (especilly that one where the ends are relativly empty) is a problem. It probably looks better than having em squashed into different sizes, and looks better than havign the overall size differ.

But I've always been rather fussy about this kinda thing.

I see where you say it starts to look a bit goldish. But i'm sure with it being just 1 band opposed to 3, and the gold's being fairly bright, it'll be easily picked up that it's 3rd. Those look great though *Thumbs up*
