The 2013 Badges will rot your teeth!

The new 2013 badges are here a little later than I anticipated, but still, before October! This year, after brainstorming with Jaime of Shezcrafti.com, I decided to use her suggestion of celebrating the return of some long lost Monster Cereal mascots by having the 2013 badges feature Franken Berry, Count Chocula, Boo Berry, Fruit Brute (I refuse to call him Frute), and Yummy Mummy...

**Also, real quick, I wanted to add some noise to the suggestion by Dex of AEIOU and Sometimes Why about the idea of participants grabbing these images and hosting them yourselves.  Least year there was a hiccup with my image hosting provider that caused the badge images to break based on the html I posted.  So if anyone desires, please feel free to grab these and host them yourselves.  I have addressed the image hosting issue, so as far as I know it shouldn't be an issue again.**

Dex said...

Hey guys, you might want to encourage people to d/l the badges and host them. Flickr is difficult when it comes to not linking back to the photo/image's page in your html.

I can't remember who (was it you, Shawn?) but someone had a problem with Flickr on their blog photos because they didn't do it the exact way Flickr wants and they had to go back and fix the html.

The "a href" link has to point to the image's page in Flickr, which would prevent it directing back here which is what we all want :D

Shawn Robare said...

Dex - Yeah, I used to host these set to private on Flickr and then last year they had a hiccup and made a bunch of user's private photos reset to public, and to fix it they created all new URLs for the images. I went ahead and set these to public so hopefully it shouldn't be a problem. Also, I circumvent the standard flickr sharing code to get the root image file. (Shhhhh, it's our secret ;) )

Shawn Robare said...

Oh yeah, but I second what Dex says. Anyone should feel free to grab the images and host them yourselves!

Dex said...

Ah ok, that makes a little more sense. I just thought Flickr were being jerks because you weren't redirecting back to the image page :)

Great badges, I'm a big cereal fan so I dig 'em!

I would love to become an official Cryptkeeper! From October 1st-October 31st I will post every day about most everything relating to Halloween on my blog @ www.ditreasures.blogspot.com; such as spooky cereals, scary video games, undead toys, bloody candies, creepy crafts, horrifying costumes, traumatizing movies, eerie TV shows, dreadful cartoons, spine-chilling decorations, fearsome music and frightful events!

I'm partial to specters and ghosts, so Boo Berry's my man! Gotta love that dapper hat of his, true class!
