I was thinking that currently the Country Manager is based on a flag which makes sense because all countries have one. The Area Manager is based on an "area" which is the only thing consistent between them around the world.

What if the State Manager is also based on a flag? The only problem is the current one is for Countries. Well the Editor Rank badges have given a great example of the same image being used for multiple levels by changing colors and the rank element.

So my proposal is to have the Country Manager and State Manager both be flags, but with different background colors. I further propose the current Country Manager colors be changed to help differentiate it from the Area Manager.

I thought about adding a "C" to the Country flag, an "S" to the State flag, and an A to the Area Manager badge, but that only translates in English, so that may not work around the world, but the rest should work.

Here are my proposals.

I was thinking purple for State Manager as a mid point between the Area (blue) and Country (red), but somewhat concerned with it being too associated with the Mentor program.

I think the red for country manager is a good association with the Red Waze Management to further align the rank/experience with that role to the Waze management.

I'm loving it, but, is it just me, or do these flags seem kind of like the Imperial Flags of Japan from WWII? Especially the CM one.

You are clearly confused - Japan is NOT known as the "Land of the Rising Hardhat!" :D

BTW, I keep trying to join the State Manager group in the forum so that my badge and title in the upper right say so. It keeps telling me that I'm already a member. And yet the upper right badge still say "Editor - Level 4". Is that part of the forum just not quite right yet? :-)

Also I created {{ImageLink2}} that suppresses the automatic link and adds the IMG tags. See the template page for documentation.

Thank you that is much cleaner than what I was trying to do.

Dammit, where is my Ginseng? :lol:

SuperDave,
Did you see my other post? I told you if we prayed hard enough, the Wiki Template god would answer us. ;)

Yep, he sure did. Though I'm puzzled as to what that has to do with rising hardhats. :lol:

Smartazz.

But that does sound like a cool nickname to give to all the SMs. The Rising Hardhats!! Hell, I'm halfway there with my signature image. :lol:

All jokes aside, how does everyone feel about Kent's proposed forum badge designs for each WME specialty?

Kent,
Maybe this could be made into a separate thread and posted on the WME section as a poll question to get everyone's opinion.

You could have the following as options to "Which forum badge update do you prefer?"
  1. Proposals with SM as green flag
  2. Proposals with SM as purple flag
  3. Keep current designs and come up with a new flag for SM
  4. None. It was fine before

I like them, too. :-)

Although a poll could be a good thing to make a final decision on it.
