I was looking at the available trophy icons on my profile and the one thing that leaped out at me was the lack of design consistency in the images. If the forum is going to persist with them (I'm not convinced they actually do anything that is good), then perhaps there should be some sort of 'design paradigm' that runs through them. Here is a range of icons all in the same design in various colors going from gold stars at the top row through bronze stars at the bottom. Perhaps you should consider something along these lines. BTW - these were generated by me using Java, and can be declared whatever license suits forum use. They are adjustable, within limits - the limits being my skill (photoshop makes it easy to add amazing effects, but Java code is ..not so easy) and patience (I have little patience for "can you tweak this color a smidge 'happier'").
