    So yeah, short version is, I'm hosting the generator but I don't want to take on the role of "steward of everyone's signature images" so you can't direct link from the output by design.

    But.... zerzhul's post got me thinking. Imgur has a decent-ish API, so I added some functionality so the generator can now post the image to imgur for you and save a couple steps. It needs more testing but seems to be working alright, so I put it up as beta functionality. If anyone has problems with it, let me know. (eg: if it kicks you to the normal generation page when you opt to post to imgur, that probably means something blew up with imgur).

    Now if only I could have both the [E] and BYOC tags on the badges (I've done BYOC at every East except 2011, and Enforced every East except 2010) :P

    How the banner strips are done would have to be changed drastically for that right now.

  • The AviatrixThe Aviatrix Registered User regular
    Could be the black back, red number and the BYOC strip in place of the E? I dunno how hard that'd be since it already has the black base for enforcers. And I dunno if the [E] matches the height of the other ones to just plaster it over neatly.

    That's the idea. I'd think a separate set of 'strips' need to be made so you could layer them on top of existing badges.

    EDIT: Also known as this: https://github.com/gespo89/PAXSignatureGenerator/issues/8

    EDIT2: For The Aviatrix: https://broadstone.github.io/PAXSignatureGenerator/src/main/webapp/index2.html It doesn't fit your preferred ordering, but it can make the pattern you want. Also the upload option is nonfunctional.

    For reference, I've gotten a few requests via PM and other stuff for some changes and features. Now that the new year has rolled over and things have quieted down a bit on my actual job. I'm putting some work in on this again. I should have an update out shortly after I get back from South.

    Currently working on:
    1. New Badge Types:
    • Special Guest
    • Content Creator
    • Exhibitor
    • Vendor
    • All Access/Staff (I doubt this will get used, but you never know)
    2. Adding a couple different "styles" for certain types of badges, particularly enforcer.
    3. Moving things to GWT (this shouldn't really affect anything for you all, just an FYI)
    4. Adding some better options for doing "custom" things with layout etc.
    5. Adding support for PAX unplugged

    Going to be a bit to finish things, but I am working on it. Maybe this weekend if I really get my shit together.

    2/10 Update: Still working on this, got sick unfortunately, and now I'm behind at actual work again, so tabled temporarily until I catch up.

    Any chance of getting a Cookie Brigade version? I know it's not a badge type, but since it IS what I do at PAX, I'd love to have a version that represents that. Maybe around the numbers have a tan circle with a chunk out of the top?

    Not sure off hand how best to handle this, but I'll see if I can figure something out.

    In a signature generator, I would think that cookie brigade would be more something like malgaras has in their sig right now, sort of an overall tag. I'm all for additional stuff but I would think since CB isn't a badge type it might not go on the badge stuff itself? Just spitballing

    Alright, so I know I'm OBSCENELY late at this point, and I apologize for that. I'll spare you the details, but short version is I've been busy with real life and have been super strapped for time.

    The GOOD news is that I finally got a new version out. Rewrite is still incomplete (learning new frameworks takes a while :( ) but in the meantime I got 95% of the to-do list taken care of:
    • Added a bunch of new badge types (Content creator, vendor, exhibitor, vip, speaker, special guest, staff)
    • Added support for PAX unplugged
    • Removed the stupid port designation from the URL (minor, but it was bugging me)

    http://www.paxsignaturegenerator.com/ (port 8080 should still work, but isn't necessary anymore)

    It's up now, might need a DNS flush on your side since I moved the server. Beyond that, I'd love any feedback, particularly on the new badge types (the look on some could maybe use some tweaking), and if you find any bugs I introduced that I missed.

    FYI to folks trying to update the badge list in your signature and hitting an "Image Not Allowed" error, something's borked on the forum. I linked the related thread below, and hope to see it resolved soon!

    The generator worked great for me! So much easier than fiddling with it in a paint program. Thank you for creating this tool. :biggrin:

    Minor update:
    • Changed staff text to white for legibility.
    • Added root domain forwarding (paxsignaturegenerator.com works as well now, no "www" needed).
    • Fixed a bug where wrapped images were being created on a canvas much larger than necessary.
    • Moved the server again, because I fail at security and keep locking myself out. Site might appear down for a day or so until DNS records propagate. It's here if you need it right now.
