some betatest quotes:

Florent wrote:okay, you can not change tags... this is the principle. When you receive it, you know it will stay like this. This could even be funny to see the history of tags in some time ^_^

now, if you want to turn a bronze tag into coppers, I would consider to get 10% out of it, but then, I don't see the interest. Notorial reward can not be converted in coppers.

Insomnia wrote:But it should at least be possible to change the image for the tag, or at least for the organization... because on the upload website you cannot really see which format fits best :-/
Florent wrote:I agree we should show a preview and provide a little more information.. when we will have time.

insomnia, with a preview, this should be ok. Maybe we can do more sophisticated stuff like the right to change it in the first week, but at the moment, we have to make things fist, and imrpove them after.
i hope that helps...

i think they still need to improve all that...

I made a tag yesterday as an experiment, I had no problem making a 256x128 jpeg 16kb @ 90% compression/quality but it was very basic with large areas of the same color. But I'm an now wondering ?
- what file formats can be used that support transparency and may be capable of producing a small enough file as required.
- are tags suppose to show next to your avatar (scoreboard)?? becuase mine does not ! its is shown under player profile ok. Does it only show next to the avatar for united accounts and not for nations accouns ?

I don't understand exactly where this will be visible. Does anyone have a screenshot?

Has any more been done with regard to the Tags? Is there a preview. I want to make a team tag available for ATP but I am loathe to make something that looks bad if I can't change it.
