An hour and a half later I came up with this. I will likely still mess around with the colours but I'm happy with it for one day.

128x128 4 Colours

I don't know if my question fits in here, but since it concerns "challenges," maybe the answer could be found here.

I was always curious about this one. When the result is displayed, we see the 3 winners and the remaining participants with the green badges behind them. These green badges guys, do they appear in a totally random order or are they displayed according to the number of votes they got?

This is not a signature.
