2. Ok so...What exactly is Firefox?
What?! FireFox is the worlds greatest internet browser. It is developed by Mozilla and can be downlaoded here: Link

3. Who is the owner of this website?
That would be telega . He is also the developer of Fast Dial, and several other firefox addons.

4. How do I get started?
If you haven't already, create an account. Once you have confirmed your email address, you can create logos, and backgrounds. The more you contribute, the more privileges you get.

User Points are a way of showing which users contribute content to the website. It is a way to encourage users to share logos - try to reach enough points to be listed under the "Top Contributors" chart.

6. How do I get more user points?
A User Point is given to those who post a logo and/or background. Two User Points are given for a blog post. Four user points are given to those who contribute to the "Tutorials" page within the Help Section.

The Top Contributor list is updated every 5 minutes. If you click the "more" link, it shows you the time remaining until next update.

8. What is the image standard for logos?
Well, since most of the logos on this site are meant to be used in Fast Dial, the ratio should be 4:3. And preferred image dimension are either 300x225 or 400x300

9. Can i copy a logo directly from the site, and post here?
Umm, NO! You must upload logos which are USABLE by others.

10. How can i preview a transparent logo on the site, in black?
Theres an easy and quick way to do this. You can use the PicLens Firefox Addon.
Just click the little play icon near the thumbnail, and it will show up in piclens on a dark background.

After making a logo request - how to keep track of progress

I have noticed a number of users after they have made a logo request looking for their request on the site search.

This is of course one method.

If you click on your own name as a user, your profile will appear.

If then you click on TRACK this will list all the posts you have made.

This is the easiest way to find the thread where you made your logo request.

Another method is to look to the top of the Userlogos page and click on Logo Requests.

That will take you here.
It should be easy enough for you to find your logo request especially as the name of the poster is listed.

The place of choice to post your acknowledgement of a finished logo is in the original thread.
Voting on the logo is a welcome extra, as are comments on the logo itself.

If you cannot find your request, (maybe you have not looked for a while) you may find it in the Archive for unacknowledged Requests

That can be found here (new)

Or the archive for acknowldeged requests that can be found here.

A quick response after a logo is completed is most welcome, as it comes close to the time spent in making the logo, and the memory is fresh in every ones mind.

I see some users, after a logo they have asked for has created a whole lot of interest, pop by the site, look at the logo, and make no comment to anyone at all.

Good luck and enjoy !

Setting up and Using RSS Feeds on Userlogos

There has been an interest shown of how RSS Feeds work on Userlogos

Below is a preliminary draft that will be further edited over the next few days

You will note that when for example you go to a page of Userlogos

For example Logos.

that in the address bar you will see this favicon/logo*:

This is to let you know that an RSS Feed is available for that page of Userlogos.

(RSS Feeds are not available for all pages of userlogos !)

RSS Feeds enable one to save a Live bookmark of a specific Userlogos Page to the toolbar easily.

For example let us go to Logos/New Logos

Left click on RSS Favicon in the Address Bar

and you will be offered two choices
1) Subscribe to a Piclens Feed
2) Subscribe to a New Logos (strangely it says

Let us click on the second option (for piclens see bottom of this page)

Once one has clicked on the second option then a small pop up menu will appear

Subscribe to Live Bookmarks

This offers as first choice to save the link to the Bookmarks toolbar

So if we hit Subscribe then the link will be saved to the bookmarks toolbar

Let us do this

All done

Once one has saved the Live Bookmark Link to the Bookmarks toolbar, if one left clicks on the link in the toolbar, one is offered a number of options of how to open the page.

On for example the New Logos Page, you will see a drop down list appear below the bookmarks toolbar link, of all the logos on the page.

This will enable you to view the logo of your choice

Below that you will see the option

Open Userlogos New Logos
(This will open the page in the normal manner)

You will also be given the option to open all the logos (on that page) in new tabs.

If you set up live bookmarks for example on the Logo Requests page, you will have listed when you left click on the Live Bookmarks Link on the toolbar all the different requests on that page

However I have noticed that when you set up live bookmarks for a thread with a whole number of comments, although the comments are listed separately in the drop down menu when you left click on the bookmarks live bookmarks link, whichever comment one clicks on, one is just taken to the top of the thread


Piclens (gooliris) feed

From a preliminary examination of the Rss Piclens Feed, it would appear not to be working.

At the moment on Logos/New for example one is offered the possibility of setting up a Piclens link onto the bookmarks toolbar by left clicking on the Rss feed logo above.
And a link i saved to the toolbar.
However when one clicks on the link one option is marked empty and the other option does not open the piclens page that one would expect.

I hope to be able to get some help to understand why this is, and to discover if the situation can be remedied.

I will post here the result of my findings
