Wondering why we don't have a microbadge for Massachusetts. We have one for the Northeast, New York, and New Hampshire , but everyone knows that people in Massachusetts are superior compared to the peasants living in NH, VT, NY, etc. nodding Big Grin

LOL, I guess no one from Massachusetts has requested a badge yet. I found a free image of the state flag emblem: http://flaglane.com/download/massachusetts-flag/ but don't know how one resizes it for Dave to make a badge.

Totally hilarious!! Thumbs up Hey, you forgot about the peasants from Connecticut (that would be me *Blush* ). Rolling on the floor laughing
I have lived in the Northeast, in Connecticut and New York, helped to build a house in Vermont, went camping (learned what hypothermia is Crying ) an climbed Mount Washington in New Hampshire but it's my opinion that the some of the nicest people in the entire Northeast are most definitely in Massachusetts - yep, back in the 1970s I lived in a few towns in that fine state. Thumbs up

However, I also have learned that people from Massachusetts are extremely humble and therefore (in my opinion) may have hesitated to bring attention to themselves by displaying a Massachusetts microbadge. Shrug!

Please offer a design for a badge for Massachusetts and our Fearless Leader (Dave) will probably add the badge. Thumbs up

Glad you enjoyed the joke. Also forgot about the hoi polloi in Rhode Island and Maine. Big Grin Sounds you had a great time exploring New England. Honestly, times have changed, and I doubt the residents in The People's Republic of Taxachusetts Hilarious! are really as nice as they were in the 70s. Some people are just really really awfully rich and won't mix with the common people. Crying

Do you think I should use a flag or the state as the badge? To me the flag looks like a badge which may or may not work to our advantage. Sad

It needs to be square, 32 X 32 pixels and PNG format. I sent two samples using the emblem, to Dave to see if he can use them.

Yes, I think I uploaded it as a PNG, but it was converted to a JPEG. Thanks for sending the samples!

Some folks (myself included) have no particular loyalty/affinity to their state. I connect more with my geographic region. Washington doesn't have a state badge, likely because no one's ever asked for one. But, some folks are 'darn proud' to be from...wherever... So, badge it up!

But it'd still be nice to have a state badge, right? Confused
