I'm bored, time for another game for us all to attend to.

It's very easy, you rate the person above you, but only their signature. Giving 1-10 points, 10 being the greatest.

I don't care if you guys talk about eachother's signatures, giving pointers, opinions, suggestions. Just as long as you Rate as you post.

(NOTE: I'm sorry but I'm getting annoyed by people constantly quoting the first post. Please STOP quoting the first post. I will ignore anyone who quotes this post.)

(P.S.: If I rate you under an 8-9 doesn't mean your signature is bad. If I rate under a 5 then I don't think it's too shabby. Don't be offended, or sad. I just hardly ever give anyone a score past the 8 zone.)

You may start.

I give Tessa's sig a 7.
I can't wait for one of the so-called "Team Lara" to post. Personally, I think that sig is laughable.

EDIT
I DON'T BELIEVE IT!! Joey posted before me, and look at what sig he's got!! :lol:
I give it a 1. It's just a noise made up of names (that are barely readable). Even the "Team Lara" logo is lost in amongst it all.

I'll give Spong's invisible sig a 10; it's awesome! ;)

I actually like Spong's underworld sig, it looks like my countdown clock thing, so I'll still give it a 10. :D

EDIT- Tessa jumped in before me... :(

I won't rate your sig again, but having it outside the rules and regulations, limits... having it as 0.3 is luckier/better than having it as '0'. (the 'within the rules/limits' factor was supposed to be boolean value... you're lucky I didn't rate it as '0' factor as I should have... then you would've received a 1.8 out of 10)

Change the file from a PNG to a JPG and that should bring it down to within the limits, and then you get your 7.6. :)
(open up your favourite image editing program with the image, go file->"save as..." and choose JPG file type, or file->"export image" and choose JPG file type...)

f: X-factor: 8 (out of 10)

Formula:

No offense.
The reason this scores so low on the criteria grid (that I've used to rate everyone else) is the lack of relation to Tomb Raider. (4 points out of 10 lost just because of that).
EDIT: Also realised it's not relavent to any eidos games... score goes down from a 5.6 to a 1.6... a further 4 points were lost because it's not an eidos game. (= 8 points lost total... relative maximum of 4 out of 10 for non eidos things)
EDIT: I figured out that the reason for having 'eidos games' factor is to give a bonus to those that do, so '0' really doesn't count...

This criteria has bias to both Eidos games, and Tomb Raider. I chose the criteria based upon these forums...

I rate the relavence to Tomb Raider so high in this case because it is a screenshot taken from the game, showing Lara, an enemy, guns, exploration/environment, action... it doesn't show off puzzles.
Colour isn't so great for this sig (the backgrond image is pretty bland)
Layout/composition is poor (busy on the right, empty on the left)

1.5? That's the lowest so far *whew*... even considering my original evaluation of Tessa's sig... 1.6. (then I figured out one of my variables, the eidos relavence one, was intented to be 1 or 2...)

Darn, you changed it. But tessa's current sig (a blank and the link) is her current sig...


why a 6.9?


At least with my posts, you know why you get the score you get.. :whistle:

RG - Your signature is also simple. I like simple, but not terribly simple alike of others I've seen around the forums. I guess what I look for in a signature is symbolism, colour, placement of pictures, location of text and colour of text. Another thing that I look for is balance. Detail would be nice and a little border. Hence why I'm a little rough on the rating system.

So, RG. For your signature I give you a 6.5/10 - I give you that, because I love the lettering on the upper right, the yellow text. It gives balance to the signature. As you have the complimentary colour in the text "Riccog". then you have the white underneath, which works well with the other tinted colours in the picture. Simple, yet lovely.

(I hate to be mean, but *Points to the rules :rolleyes: *.

Not everyone will give you a low score, it's not the end of the world.)

If you'd like to know why I don't like it very much, is because there's a big open space between the pictures. There needs to be something there, other wise I'd give you a better score. Also, the pink-purple text doesn't fit. If it'd be at least a green, yellow, or blue hue.

Will evaluate (and give advice) on TF#1's current sig...

Signature to Rate:
http://i458.photobucket.com/albums/qq304/Tombfan1/newsiggy2.jpg

Criteria:
a: within the signature size limit: 0.3 (out of 1) (58 kB > 30 kB) See side note 1
b: relavence to Eidos games: 2 (out of 2)
c: relavence to Tomb Raider series: 7 (out of 10)
d: colour: 3 (out of 5) (See side note 2)
e: layout/composition: 2 (out of 5) (See side note 3)
f: X-factor: 7 (out of 10)

Formula:
a * b * [c + d + e] + f

3 out of 10
(6.2 out of 10 were it to be within file size limits)

Side notes:
1) Larger than 30 kB. This is outside the rules, regulations and limits of the allowed signature. Hard to fix without reducing image (technical) quality
2) Colour: The colours do not harmonise well. There are 3 parts to this signature: The left side, the right side, and the text. The colour/tone of the left side is grey/blue, dark. The colour/tone of the right side is green/brown, lighter. The colour of the text is pink. Individually, none of these things is wrong, but put together, the clash of the colours from the left against the colours on the right, it doesn't blend together well. The pink text would be lovely to read on the left part of the image, but on the right (Hand side) part, where it now, it doesn't contrast so well with the background, and as a result is hard to read.
3) Layout: Goar pointed out the large gap in the center. There is something else that bothers me... it's the cause of that problem. This signature is two separate images stuck together (left side and right side). Individually, these would have made decent sigs, but stuck together in the proportions they have been isn't so great. The right side of the image has Lara domination on the right hand side of the sub-Image... with a plain/empty left hand side. This right hand side image (without the left hand side) would make a good sig were it on its own, and Lara centred on the background, but the balance of the layout as it is has become out of wack.

I'd advise you to not have multi-part/multi-image sigs. It can be difficult to balance them, and even then it isn't guarunteed to look great. Also Keep It Simple (Stupid) is a common design catchphrase. :) (K.I.S.[S.])
(Not saying you're stupid, though).

6.5 is higher than what I gave myself. I have symbolism in my current sig, it's why I like it. The symbolism is just hidden (ironically) behind the (yellow) Wingdings 3 font...

and I think the balance is shot to hell. Look at the left of it, and you'll see it's all over to the right hand side.

@RG: True. I guess I was being too nice when typing that.

@Tombfan#1: If you want a great signature banner, you have to make things work. It takes thinking. Just think of it like a painting. You can make a fantastic signature from MS Paint. You can make a signature look alike of a comic strip, just adding borders around each picture and add text anywhere you'd like, just figure out where it'd fit the best. Always use a colour from your current palate, as in on the pictures you used. If you want something to pop-out, then use a complimentary colour. Take Red and Green for an example: Red is the primary colour, and when put up against it's secondary colour (Which is Green), then you have complimentary -- popping eachother out.

BLOWHARD
1st Oct 2008, 01:29
My turn?
It's basically very nicely done. One thing that hits me, and IMHO, keeps it from being top rate, is it's basic construction. It's cut in 3 segments. They are unequal, which is good, but their sizes don't aid in the cohesiveness of the design. They are each slightly larger but pictorially the last segment appears smaller. What's wrong with this? Basically it has an unplanned feeling to it that goes against the use of the segments. Some sort of symmetry should be employed: each larger than the other in equal amounts, the number 1 and 3 segments being equal, etc. The other problem with the segments is that the first two feature horizontal movement that is being cut and limited by the segments.
Also, you have set up a left to right pattern, the first figure close to it's segments right edge, the second centered and the third figure is close to it's segments left edge. It's contradictory. By playing with the placement to could establish movement of the figures from left to right leading the eye across the page.
The type placement seems problematic also, perhaps because it is centered but the focus seems to be the third figure. I'm not sure where the type would function better though. Perhaps spread out across the bottom edge or flush right?
***That said, don't let any of that get to you, it is still very good and lively :D
But since this is rating here, I thought I'd give you all a taste of what you could do with a worded critique if you had gone to a fine art school like I did :rasp:
Seriously Tombfan#1, just using some of the gobbledy-goop I learned in school, it's all valid, but not meant to cut you down. I like your sig a lot, it's just you were at the end of the thread :o

Now mine? I preface mine by saying it was done quickly using one of my paintings, a photo of myself and a heavily recolored Lara picture, I didn't put much thought into it, or use much of what I learned in school :rolleyes:

Tombfan#1
1st Oct 2008, 01:41
the one on the right is bigger because I wanted a lot of that lara on it since it was what I started the sig with. the one on the left is the smallest because if I made it bigger it would distort and look different than what it's supposed to. the middle is the best place for the wording because it is where people look the most is the middle so I thought I'd put it there because thinking it would read more than an any other place on the sig. I used the fire add on on Paint.net to make the signature stand out more then it would if it was just plain with green.

Yours on the other hand I would say about 6.2 because it has Lara on it but you are just there in the arch part of it which is sorta creepy no offense

''Whos The Biggest gaming Icon? Easy! LARA CROFT'' - Team Lara

Criteria:
a: within the signature size limit: 0.3 (out of 1)
b: relavence to Eidos games: 2 (out of 2)
c: relavence to Tomb Raider series: 7.5 (out of 10)

f: X-factor: 7 (out of 10)

Biggest reason it scores so low is that it's outside of Eidos sig rules/regulations.

1/10 because I hate spiders and I'm afraid of them.

I bet my rating will be higher than that, for Naraku's. (and given that his sig's not intended for the criteria I made up)...

Signature to Rate:


Criteria:
a: within the signature size limit: 1 (out of 1)
b: relavence to Eidos games: 1 (out of 2) (worth noting: this variable has value of either 1 or 2... so acts as a bonus for eidos games)
c: relavence to Tomb Raider series: 2 (out of 10) (There are spiders in TR...)
d: colour: 3 (out of 5)
e: layout/composition: 2 (out of 5)
f: X-factor: 5 (out of 10)

Formula:
a * b * [c + d + e] + f

2.4 out of 10
(non-Eidos sig has max of 6 in this criteria set...)

Not bad, considering this criteria was intended for a whole different category than what you've posted.
Notes:
Colour: white background behind spider takes from the coolness of it
Composition/Layout: the text would look better under the image (your sig is allowed this), and if the whole sig were centered

naraku
1st Oct 2008, 07:05
Strangely enough her reaction was not unexpected. :whistle: @RG Yeah that's something I considered too. I have one with a black background but it would blend into Underworld's dark hue. I wanted the words in under the spider. Plus I've thought of adding the black and reddish spider to make a yin and yang thing going. or on the other side of the phrase like a banner or Flag even.

I give RG a 9.2 because it's tomb raider related and it's simple hat took off the .8 points is that the lettering in the upper right corner go good with the back ground but maybe they pop out a little too much

Scores lower than it could because of the criteria bonus for "Tomb Raider"... (action/enemies/environment/exploration)...
I think the colour loses half a point because: The font is faded/half transparent, while in a thick font. I think the image of Lara would look better un-filtered...

A picture of Lara isn't necessary relavent to Tomb Raider. tombraiderchronicles.com has a section with Lara pictures in it... and not all of them are relavent to Tomb Raider..

I'll rate Tombfan's tiger sig as 9 out 10 Very dynamic, His Trinity of the Lara a 7 out of 10 very monochromatic the fade from blue to green should have met at the center frame and more subtle.

Hey, RG.

Would you mind rating the one Mr. Croft made me a week or so ago?

You can also rate the blue one I had, as well.

(Why am I asking you? Because I like the way you rate, and it makes sense. Let alone I'm just curious about the scoring, really.)

Anyone else can rate it, if they want. :)

Well I know you asked for RG opinion not mine. I'd give the top one an 8 out of 10 I like how you signed it at the bottom right corner. Like something I would do. The middle one I'd give it a 6 out of 10 cause it looks distorted somehow. The Last one is a 10 in my book. I like how it looks like a reel. Frame by frame shot of Lara in Action :thumbsup:

Yeah but she specifically asked for you're opinion even commented how she likes the way you rate.

Oh no! :mad2:
I just realised her current sig is too big (filesize)... I'd rated it before and let it pass :mad2:... (I'll edit + a smaller filesize version of that too...)

Here is the sig image with a smaller filesize. :)

(Which earns the 7.2)

Hehe... just looking back over this thread... because some people have changed their sig some comments don't make sense, although mine make (more) sense because the images to be rated are placed in the post. :)

Which I've been meaning to ask you, how do you do that?


Like this? Oh just answered my own question :p

http://i305.photobucket.com/albums/nn235/rg_001100/Signatures/1z4vk79b.jpg

New question, I noticed her new sig didn't show up even though I commented. How do I get hers to show up like the one above.

Sprechen Sie Englisch :confused: :scratch:

"How do I do.." what?
"How do [you] get hers to show up like the one above."?... actually, I think I know what you mean by this one.
When in "thread-read" mode (or when you see the sig/image you would like to have in your post), right click on the image, click "properties". There should be a 'URL' or "image path" property. Just copy and past that between the [IMG] tags. :)
