    Getting this to fit and look right in such a small size was tough!

    All custom (except the MR logo).

    So the avatar is 75x66 but it is being cutoff on the bottom. What's up with that?

    Figured it out, I think.

    Thanks everyone! I was beginning to think everybody hated it!

    As far as where I got the idea. I visit MR compulsively, so a keyboard shortcut would be handy. Then I thought why not put it on the keyboard!

    Admittedly, the design of the key is something I have been working on for awhile for another project, so it was easy to put the two together.

    Although, this key was widened a bit to closer match the appearance of the command key.

    I don't know if it is allowed, but I could post a larger version so you can see the detail.

    Having a MR key would definitely be convenient. Ha ha!

    Nice work. :)

    Haha! I guess my concern was whether or not a larger version may skew the judging (and potentially disqualify me.

    I have no problem posting it, but I want to make sure it is within the rules of the contest.
