HELLO HERE I AM AGAIN EVERYONE ON MY #ASEXUAL FLAG BULLSHIT
I have gotten some good feedback from people and I am leaning towards using the attached image, combining the elements of my original idea with the unanimous feedback of "too dark".
Bonus from @maple are the choice of purple - # A000CE (get it???) - and the diagonal variant
I'm going to redo my icon and a special mention to @Aster (who made amazing icons using the darker one just now!) in case they want to change them!
Here is the diagonal variant by @maple :3
@InspectorCaracal I love this idea! May I ask what the significance of the diagonal flag is? I'm just curious as to whether it has a different meaning, or is simply an aesthetic variant. ^^
@InspectorCaracal i like it!
@InspectorCaracal I was just going to suggest something similar, since I saw the alt and thought the purple was too bright while the gray looked like white. I think these versions are better.
However, I'm not sure about the diagonal stripes. Since it's such a hard shape to reproduce manually, I think there should be some kind of way to tell where the diagonal stripe should start/finish D:
@Aster I like the diagonal one as a non-standard variant for situations where they work, myself, and the horizontal stripes as the main one. :3
@Aster I'm glad you like the color change, though!!
@Aster it might be worth it to start the diagonal at the corners 🤔
@InspectorCaracal maybe something like one of these? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_national_flags_by_design#Diagonal
@Aster I wound up changing it a bit so that the purple edges go from corner to midpoint, which I think is fairly clear to follow? You are of course welcome to do it differently!
@InspectorCaracal do you only have the updated flag as the same one that's on the emoji?
I don't know how to work with diagonal stripes on Photoshop/Inkscape, but if you can get me a 5000x3000 version of the flag, I can directly contact the folks at https://www.deviantart.com/pride-flags and maybe get it there sooner
@Aster I have an SVG of it from maple! Let me upload it to my server and link you
emoji spam (without emoji repetition)
re: emoji spam (without emoji repetition)
@Aster AAA OMG THAT LOOKS SO GOOD
@InspectorCaracal i'm glad i could help!
@anthracite that sounds rather trivializing of asexuality tbh
That wasn't my intent. *shrug*
Have a wonderful day! <3
@ben aw hell yes ace pride asura ftw
@ben Now I want to dress my Sylvari mesmer in ace pride colors... 🤔
@InspectorCaracal do you have the racing scarf, by the way?
@ben I do not! I haven't gotten the roller beetle yet, we're still only on Episode... 3? of Season 4
@InspectorCaracal you can rent the beetle for 1 silver per hour at each of the races
The reason I mention the scarf is that its dye pattern is stripes of channel 1-2-3-2-1
And I'm wearing it in the screenshot
@ben OOOOOH I didn't know you could rent a beetle!!!
@InspectorCaracal probably you can guess from all the "[x] liked your toot!" notifications but I'm really into all of this.
@gladdecease I actually have star/boost notifications turned off >.> I have to actually go check a post if I wanna see how many stars or boosts it has
