RE: Custom pony stats banner
@Tiwake - I might make another one that's Neo Suitable later.

Perhaps we can offer a range for Neoseeker? Does height matter (Neo Limits are 575x125 - 50KB)

Sure, though each user folding can only use one... but if you want to shorten them thats fine... I cant say about physical image size though, PNGs tend to be largish... but making the image physically smaller will help too.

[edit]
I didnt think about this, but I could just run them through imagemagick to convert to jpg for much smaller image size. I'm considering doing this for all of them now...
but that would require everyone to use ther <ID number>.jpg

[edit2]
derp. I still need the <ID number>.png file to feed into imagemackick, so I could keep both the jpg and png there, just promote the jpg ones from now on.

Any thoughts on this?

@Tiwake - I was wondering why we couldn't just use JPG images from the outset though XD

Because thats not how the program works, and PNG is superior in every way.

[edit]
I will throw in a convert command to turn all the images into a jpg which will bring the overall image size down to ~30kB
If ponies want to make the image a little taller, like 120pixels tall, thats fine too. Just as long as the text stays in the same place where it always has been.

RE: Custom pony stats banner
This deserves a double post, also because I'm amazing like that.

I updated the sigs so ponies have the option to use either a PNG of their sig, or a JPG version for smaller (lossy) image size. The JPG version is a little less than 1/2 the PNG size. It does not really matter for my server, I have a reasonable upload speed and the whole folder (with both PNG and JPG images) is only 13MB in size. Regardless, the option is there now.

RE: Custom pony stats banner
Well, this thread was longer, but anyway, some updates...

Colgate made a lovely little script that pulls a list of all the users from a given team. I used this script maybe a month ago to get the fold stats going for all ponies on the team. Every three hours I can tell when a stats update is when my hard drives click away like oatmeal (ha, I made a funny). I was informed that the code for the stats image generator has been updated, but havent updated it on my server. This wouldent change the image at all, just the way a couple of config files work, with a couple options (or something like that).

So yeah, I still have these going, and I'm still taking requests. I'll probably have to update the first post again to include all the lost stuff from when the server went down.

Anyway, just letting you guys know *my* server is still going strong.
Cheers

Hmm... I see there is no Zecora banner :o

But I guess I can use Luna for now. She is cool too. ^^

If you want, I can create one for you. Find me an image of Zecora, and a background to use, and I can get it done in a couple of minutes.
