    Ok so Jbunch07 and I think that it would be awesome to have some sort of team insignia. As we all know, F@H is addicting and rewarding because of its ability to inspire friendly competition between different groups for a good cause.

    We at TPU! have the one of the highest avg. PPD's in the top 100 teams. That makes us a bunch of altruistic bad*sses. We think that we should have some sort of team insignia, maybe matching sigs, etc. etc. We see this as a way to bring more support to the team while representing the baddest website of all time :D.

    Just wanted to know what you guys thought. Please post any and all ideas/ opinions.

    On a side note, Buck is gonna hit 10M points soon! So a congrats to him on that.

    A GOOD WAY TO DO THIS: If you think you have an idea for team sig/avatar/any other kind of insignia, make your profile look like your proposed design and post in this thread with the title 'check this out.' As results come in, we can vote on our favorite.

    A good idea for sure! I wouldn't mind sporting one, but at least for now my GPU! banner and avatar are sticking in support of that. Though I may take interested depending on what shows up in this thread!

    Well hello there! Tell me what kind of sig you guys want (i think avatar would be cool)! Or an even better idea, W1z could give us red stars of something.

    We could pull something off like this in my sig.

    or

    We can pull something off very exciting. Signature is out IMO, as super folders all have the dynamic sigs. I propose avatars. I have some cool ideas.

    Yeah...I see what you mean...Avatars might be a better idea.

    Edit: maybe put our names or somehow customize each avatar to make it our own yet still team like.

    Idea: Instead of replacing the red why don't you just add the white symbol into it?
