New Gemp Images

Post by Shadow 14 »

As a long term project we've been working on high resolution images for all the Star Wars cards, which we can use in Gemp and other sources.

There is one question in this regard that I would like to ask here. The ultimate decision will of course be up to the advocates and legal, but maybe it's interesting to hear some opinions here.

Do we want the images on Gemp to look like THIS: (current version)?

OR do we want the images on Gemp to look like THIS: (full slip)?

In my opinion the current version makes no sense, since Gemp "cuts off" the underlying card name anyway, so we might as well use the second, "full slip" version. What are your thoughts?

I prefer full slip, but I think this is the very reason the author of this thread shut down, as his later posts seemed to say that even re-using the copyright was against the agreement...

viewtopic.php?f=188&t=65510

Specifically here:

viewtopic.php?p=1205901#p1205901

Which was very sad indeed.

Yeah, full slip. Absolutely.

But this is a good point:

Would be bad form to shut down a volunteer's work citing the legal agreement and then go and do it yourself later. Unless somehow the same rules don't apply for purely digital cards that aren't meant to be printed out.

I prefer C-Slip as it looks cool and keeps a foot in the paper card roots.

His interpretation and the actual reasoning of the advocates were quite different, if I remember correctly.
The PLAYER and COSPLAYER credits were missing on the cards and the layout was changed. That is a whole different thing. I don't remember ever getting to the copyright line.

But I don't want to diminish anything strangeways did. I was a big fan of the scans and wanted him to do the v-cards as well, but it didn't work out unfortunately.

I prefer that they are the same as irl-cards. If we do full template on gemp, we should also do it for real.

The full slip looks better no question. But from a uniformity standpoint I think we should keep it as a C-Slip on Gemp, so as not to confuse people.

C-slip.

I like keeping it similar to IRL as a nod to our paper roots.

I also think the bit of red on the right looks kinda sweet in this example, though full slip would usually look better (but still vote for half/C-whatever).

I added the copyright line in the first post. It should not have been missing of course. That was not the point.

C-slip unless we're going to change the stance on printing out full-slips for IRL events (which I'd be really happy with, because * cutting c-slips).

Full slip looks cooler, but consistency matters.
