Upon entering these forums, there's the list of places to go: Video Games, Reviews, General Discussion, Episode III (Spoilers), etc., but sometimes next to one of these is a red lightsaber igniting...what does that mean?

You need to ask your big brother about these things... :D

Don't go making yourself look all a fool on these forums. We have our family name to uphold! :D

Miss Insanity is correct, though. The symbol codes are at the bottom of the main forum screen.

That's what I always thought...but I always look for something explaining it...and it said nothing. Besides, I've gone to forums when there were new posts and the saber was merely a hilt!

Sorry for making a moron of myself...I'm really just as cool as my big brother JEDIpartnr! Honest! :crazed:

Either you just saw it when the blade "de-ignited" and didn't see it re-ignite, or someone made a post after you had loaded the page so it didn't have the info to display it when you loaded it.

Ok. Makes sense. Thanks.

(Here's hoping people won't think I'm some moron!)

Basker, I designed the current set of lightsaber icons so that the "on" version (an animated gif), when stopped, would appear in its original or final state - both the beginning and end should be the "full-blade" position. However, I have noticed that while the page is loading, the gif's animation seems to slow down, which gives the appearance of being the "off" version -- such is the wacky nature of animated gifs and web browsers.

They were originally blue, then green, but neither of those colors stood out on the current main forum page, so there was only one real choice. ;)

I miss the X-mas version. I liked the lil lightsaber candy canes. Those were cool. Will they be making a return apperance this December, JediTricks? :D

That is up to SirSteve, but I sure hope so, I had a great time making that one! (of course, I had a great time making it 3 different times because the first 2 weren't quite what I had in mind ;))

Cool, good job JT. Infact, I was using it well past Christmas, it looked so much nicer. Until Sir Steve finally pulled the alternate look. I hope it does return. :)

And here I thought this thread was going to be about the psychological meaning of lightsabers and their almost phallic appearance in the movies.:eek:

My mistake.:o;):D
