    About a week ago Leminnes posted a nifty photo of a hazard sign that was used on old junction boxes. I figured it would make a nifty overlay so I decided to make some. I'm also pondering the possibility of doing a couple more if anyone wants them.

    -updated with smaller versions-

    Anything in particular you'd like more of?
    Smaller versions, larger versions, different colour versions, versions with less text?

    We need to change the text to something humourous as well, like we spoke of. Like I suggested "Can cause shock, burn, or zombification."

    I was thinking something playing with the 4th wall might be nice, "Can shock, burn, or cause gibbing" for example.

    Or just make it a normal sign. Not everything needs to be funny. I like what it is currently!

    These signs are perfect! There is no need to change them. However if you want to do more you can do small metal signs like:
    DANGER - HIGH VOLTAGE (and at the botton put the alpha electric logo)
    Cuation - High Voltage keep hands and feet away at all times
    etc.
    I'd like to see some more!

    I hear what you're saying Muffin, if I do make a funny one I'll keep it seperate from the existing ones as I'd most likely use the serious ones.

    Thanks for the suggestions Kiwi, I'll make some smaller ones next.

    Huzzah! :D

    Also, in case anyone is curious (or wants to be real-world accurate) these signs are generally found outside on "Subdivision Electric Transformers" or Utility Boxes to most people. They look like this:

    Or any variety of them. I'll actually get a pic of the one I took a photo of at some point. The one in my neighborhood looks like a green half cube with rounded corners stuck in the ground with a concrete base.

    * scurries off to give it a go*

    I never really get signs like that (I mean in real life) because it's amps that kill, not voltage... meh.

    Good signs though, but I agree, I think they should have something funny about them or some easter-egg.
