That's the thing - with tiny lines of tiny writing (kind of like how a uni bomber writes!) - until the ball almost seems like it's made of nitpicking little words of doubt.

Cool! Now i really hope you Admins can change the yellow squares into these beautiful deadly things!

Added benefit is that no magical hacker will ever be able to harm us....  ;D

Anyone got a tiny picture of a chorae that could be used in place of the yellow squares that currently represent rank? That would be sweet.
(I always kind of picture them as marble sized, and covered in the weird writing that is found on the covers of some of the older books)

Done. But if Somnambulist feels like editing the background at anytime to match the palate of the site, I would appreciate.

EDIT: Actually impossible as the background varies from post to post. That whiteness bothers me...

Nice, some people might not be able to tell what it is but I think that its better than the squares.

Might be really easy to edit if you want to. Just open up the file in paint and change the background color with the fill tool. If paint does the whole picture, grab the circle tool and place a thin black circle around the chorae and then fill, it should create a barrier. I'll do it later tonight if no one minds.

Just post the edited version in this thread as an attachment and then I'll reupload it to our server - unless, of course, I get to it first ;).

Will this png work?  It should have a transparent background.  What's the pixel size of the icon you need?  Maybe I can fiddle this to show more detail.

You make me happy. I can't tell you how much that white border annoyed me.

15x15: Good luck with that ;).

We could be mean and just leave off the chorae completely for the bottom rank lol

So, I don't know if this looks 'more' like a chorae or not.  Quite challenging to get any detail that small and not just look muddled.

Yeah when you can count the individual pixals like that it will be hard to do anything useful.

My only suggestion would be to put just 1 big "letter"/symbol onto it. That way at least you could tell that there was something there? But then it just looks like a circle with a random symbol in it... I wouldn't worry about it. I think it looks good as it is.

I agree.  So, with that in mind, here's my (probably) last offering, with a single symbol in the middle as you suggested.
