If sheet music won't fit, why not a single musical instrument? Accordion? Balalaika? Pete Seeger's banjo? Sorry, that's about all I can think of.

I'm down with that as long as the background ties in with it well. White against grey isn't very aesthetically pleasing. Which instrument would make most sense?

I have a lot of music downloaded from The Red Army Choir and it just came on shuffle so I wondered what you guys thought about using one of these for the music icon:

Just a quick search. I'll put more thought into it later.

I was thinking of a 10x10 pixel photo to use for the unperson rank. Warning has a yellow card, suspended has the red card... perhaps the unperson could have a little black tombstone... or something... thoughts?

It's going to have to be a solid color. Nothing is going to be visible at 10x10.

Here are two options. The top is the closest I can get to a tombstone at that size.

That's actually not that bad... the red x might at a glance look like the red card too much..

I like the third one the best. The second one is okay; and I dislike the first.

Second one looks like Julie Andrews! I like that one the best.

For the unperson pixel, why not just a simple black X?

It's a bit bigger than the little black square, but I thought that this could work as a replacement Avatar for the Unpersonned:

We already submitted a different one to Fox
Wish I would have seen it. Plus, you have to change avatars individually on each persons account so it's kind of a bitch.

You actually just reminded me of the post I was going to make in here about political photos that were edited back in the day. Brownie points if anyone posts that topic for my lazy-ass

There's only 100 million of them. Maybe someone could write a little macro.

Are you talking about this kind of thing?:

Second one, Comrade Victor/Victoria, is best!

That would make the most sense. Or we could just implement it on the most recently banned people. Idk.

Yes, but not limited to just the USSR. I started building a folder on my computer for it and I have several from the DPRK and a few other countries. I just didn't want to make it an image dump so I'm trying to come up with something of substance to post with it.

I like the second and third. I am quite partial to the Red Army Choir, though, so I'm going to put more effort into finding something everyone can agree on.

I agree.

I'm about to work on Trotsky for the Dustbin. As much as I don't want to lol
