okay, so here's an update, with things arranged a bit better, and with the new A's and N's done by @ellilis :

As you can see, thanks to ellilis the corner designs look much nicer now!

Right now I'm thinking about leaving the liquor bottles as-is, since i haven't really found anything that looks quite as good. I also like the sailboats a lot... so i might leave those on the corners and we'll fill in the blank spots with more symbols. can anyone recommend any?

@landpirate , i think a skull/crossbones would be good still, can you help me a find a vector art version that would fit?

Actually, right after I posted this, i found some pirate flag images that i thought were pretty cool, so i did this:

I like most of it so far, and it's finally starting to look a little more filled out. What do you think?

top right jolly roger is the best one, i like the hourglass underneath it as well, I was actually thinking of suggesting that. bottom left skeleton is great too.

not digging the top left one for some reason.

Dig it, but with the caveat that it looks like a harbor with all them sailboats. Maybe a bicycle/motorcycle in the mix? Or/and a van/rv (I do see those roads on the borders)?

small update for today. i'm thinking about getting rid of all but one of the boats, and filling in the blanks with more icons that represent different forms of travel.

I would like the one with squatter symbols in it if you would replace the anarchy symbols with something else.
I'm not a teenager anymore.

I think it's pretty tough to get it perfect for everyone, theres a lot of diversity with us here (which is great!) Some of us rubber tramp, some ride the rails, some prefer biking it or sailing, some love to drink, some never touch drugs or alcohol, etc. This seems like its coming along pretty good for being kind of a coming-together of the whole STP community. :)
Two thoughts: if we're taking out some sailboats, maybe throw in a dog for the literal-or-not road dog in its place? Or possibly bring back a dumpster or trash can? Just two thoughts, I'm happy to draw em up if needed.
Okay, I'm off my box now. ;)

Also that bike in the bottom is awesome

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

You say I should love myself and have more self-confidence. You've got it all wrong. I love myself plenty, and I know for a fact that I am capable of doing incredible things, both good and evil.
You say fake it till you make it. I'm too honest for that. Instead I will have faith in myself, and act accordingly.
These new rules for the train riding forum are ridiculous. I've been on here for 5 ish years.

I read your story last month about working in Alaska. I got a job in Naknek this summer. Definitely can get how it felt like jail. I fear it's really going to feel that way with this virus. We can't go into town. I'm not very happy about that since it will limit my exploring. Yet I really need the opportunity right now. Anymore advice is much appreciated.
