Currency sign for gbooky on 14.05.09 15:00, Last edited: 14.05.09 19:57
hey folks,

for as long as gbooky exists, we have been using a plain euro sign € as representation of gbooky capital. Since this is not very creative and might be misleading some people to think this is real money we'd like to change this and create a special currency sign for gbooky.

The problem is that in order to work inside normal text like the euro, dollar or pound sign (€,$,£) it can not be larger than 11 by 10 pixels (greyscale).

If you want to give it a try, just take a look at pt patt0n's idea about the currency symbol (shown on almost every matchpage) and try to pixel that down to this miniature size.

Images can be uploaded here: and then linked to this thread.

To make the effort somewhat worth your while, we are willing to give you 5g's (Gbooky euros) for every submitted pixel (you do the math :p) if it is worth considering - The winner will get twice that (and a life long display of his creation all over the site)

So fire up whatever you use for pixeling and show us what you got ^^

the dimensions were wrong, up to 11x10 is ok aswell (11 high, 10 wide)

everyone who submitted their ideas have recieved a little thank you on their gbooky account ;-)

please tell us your opinion about which one to chose - currently there is a tendency to this one:

(mainly for clairity)

different ideas still very welcome (and will still be rewarded with 's ^^)

<-- Not bad, i like it.

Even better would be the last one here with a bigger G (like this ) and with 2 stripes downwards, just like the gbooky image.

Here the last:

So it would fit to this one:

Just my opinion.

Actually for now I'd stick with the euro sign.

₲ G with a line through it like the cent sign.
