PLEASE for the sake of all of our eyes, PLEASE adjust the badges to INCREASE the Font size of the names so people can actually read the badges from more than 6inches away.This is a picture of the 2005 and 2007 badges. Notice how the 2005 badges are MUCH easier to read?(It would be nice if the badges had an icon of the game on them somewhere too, like the 2005 badges, instead of just wasting a line for "EQ&quotSMILEYAt the very least how about something like:
Character NameGame - Server (merged server)Guild
For the badge design?

I absolutely agree with this. My eyesight is not that great and I so hate staring at a woman's chest trying to read her character name.

My eyesight is not so great either, but having to stare at a woman's chest is not the reason I would use for increasing the font size.

/agreeHaving men walk up to you all day and bend over and squint at your chest all day gets old. /giggle.If the background of the badge could be something that is game specific so that you know when you walk up if you are about to meet someone from EQ, SWG, etc.I like the badge contest idea.

Differant Icons based on the game you play would be nice. However I would prefure it if all the text was BIGGER and about the same size because I don't know about other people but I am more well known by my Forum name then my ingame caractor, mainly because I am in a very small guild and I change my Main frequently. SMILEYI think if all the Text was in about 16pt font with a white background then it should not be too hard to read.

Totally agree with this one.. The name should be larger than the rest tho. And I think each badge should be specialized to each players game. Something like putting an image of Firiona Vie for EQ 1 player, Antonia Bayle for EQ 2, and So on...Be nice to see from a 5 foot distance .. most ppl are grouped in circles talking anyways.

Yeah, everyone last year seemed to use their actual names rather than in-game, and since the badges were so hard to read it was difficult to tell what their characters' names were.  So catching up in-game was a little tricky.Heck, I'm seriously considering having business cards printed up with my forum name and character names and servers to give out.  It'd be a lot easier.

Colour/patten for the background per game and FIRST NAME of toon HUGE!.  Rest of names/titles/server can be shrunk, but the name as big as possible would be great.

The old badges back when it was just EQ had HUGE names and they were great, the badges recently have sucked bad, to put it frankly.

Server, game, etc, can be QUITE small for all i care, i want to know people's NAME

Well since we are all MMO players, maybe the best solution is to have metal Halos made and have our names and guild names hanging from that over our heads. SMILEY

Ooh, I like that.  On the other hand, if you have a long name and/or title you could get such a neck cramp.

Just like my forum sig has my personna main (Rijacki who is on AB) and my raid main (R'Jack who is on GuK), I found I could put a slash into my badge name SMILEY
