Custom Title and Icon Guide

This post details the effects one can use in custom titles and icons as well as transfer information.

General Title Guidelines

  • Titles should be requested in HTML format.
    • You can use an online HTML editor to check your code.
  • Max one line per title. Your title can be as many words/characters as you'd like -- but your CSS styling has to make it so that the title does not stretch the board. E.g., "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" is acceptable as a title, as long as your title's style makes it so that word does not stretch the board or break onto two lines.
  • Links are prohibited in custom titles (and similarly, custom icons)
  • Can't be edited/changed except where a change token is purchased
  • Can't be transferred from active characters except where a change token is purchased
  • Can be transferred from inactive characters (not edited)
  • Title and icon ORDER may be changed if the person is requesting another change to their title area

General Icon Guidelines

  • Icons need to be 27x27 pixels or smaller, including black+white outlines. Black + white outlines are highly preferred, but other alternatives (e.g., drop-shadow) are acceptable on case-by-case basis.
  • Transfer rules same as with titles: free transferring only from inactive/dead; transfer from active requires token; order shuffles permitted when adding new icons.
  • Custom icons can never be edited.

Allowed CSS Properties*

* Some titles may be restricted in the number of effects (e.g., some contest prizes specify "two CSS effects" or similar)
** Some titles may be limited in the number of colors (e.g., some contest prizes specify "two color fade" whereas others are "three color fades" etc.)
