(and also themselves tbh)
this isn't really a recent story, but it just angered me last night while making edits.
last october, i helped out making SF9's badges last year aaaaand i kinda regret it. just so you know, people on OH vote for the badges they want for a certain artist.
this is a badge- users earn these after a certain amount of posts (i currently have 6):
that's the very beautiful Oh My Girl badge (that i didn't make lmao).
users who know the basics of photoshop make badge "mocks" for users to vote on. i literally had photoshop for only a week and i thought it was a good idea for me to make some. i was only on OH for like a month and did not really know the regulations? lol
now, some of the badges i made were pretty decent like this one that won:
the rest i made, as you'd expect for a newbie, were PITIFUL. thankfully, most didn't win (i'm sorry youngbin that i didn't sharpen your pictures).
HOWEVER, I WILL FOREVER BE UPSET OVER
THIS EASILY SHOULD HAVE WON. I WAS GOING TO USE MY BADGE HOLDER FOR THIS BADGE. I CRIED OVER THIS BADGE.
but, this really bad badge won...
seriously, it is so tragic and i can't use it on my very cute badge arrangements. (i'll upload ones i've used and/or made for fun later). he looks cute but- WHY USE A PREDEBUT PICTURE THIS DOES NOT MAKE SENSE TO ME.
the rage over the chani badge has given me inspiration to make mocks for him now so that he can get a better badge this year when awards season comes (awards season is when you can change the image for a badge only ONCE). now that i am more "experienced" photoshop user, these mocks actually look decent.
because i've made a few already and still am for the rest of the members, feel free to check here!
for the love of hong jisoo, if this boy gets another tragic badge not made by me, i will protest.
