What do you mean by chat graphic?

I'd be up for it, if I knew more about it.

Basically its a graphic to try and represent a chat room or a chat related picture. It doesn't have to be TF2 but it does need to fit into the site.

I'd be happy to lend my Gmod skills to this. But what size are we looking for? Even, what shape?

Square-ish, rectangular-y?

small enough. if you look at the sidebar, the space taken up by the existing "join chat". roughly 160x90 or thereabouts. not strictly those proportions, but something that fits neatly in the sidebar, so no wider that 165 say

I shamelessly nicked the idea from tf2maps.net who have this graphic - Image

but that is generic (and theirs)

we'd like somethnig that is tf2 stylee and gives the impression that it's for chat somehow..soldier w/ hand to mouth calling and join chat under it for example or happy heavy on the phone split w/ another class doing same, partyline stylee...or..or... that's where ye're imagination and skills come in

Here are a bunch of stock shots I have. Scout shouting into the mic, solly on a phone, and Heavy shouting off screen. I wanted the Heavy shot to be like a Soviet propaganda shot I saw before.
EDIT: Found it, see bellow.
Now if someone could stylise the Heavy shots to look like that, it'd be great. Just swap the russian with CHAT in a "soviet themed" font.

If someone wants me to try another Gmod thing for them, ask away, but you'll want to make it tonight because I won't be back online 'till friday.

I would add extras but I don't have photoshop on my new computer yet :<

And, for good measure, I got this in:

Excellent ideas there Del. I'm pretty sure there's a comms panel in Blu spawn rooms and I think I've seen a loudspeaker around the BLU bases too... there ya go..

I think You've got enough to be thinking of something.

Meme, if there is something you'd like to see on the site then by all means work away and post something specific so we can all have a look see and comment. :)
