Thanks. The "Badge the menu item with current status" check box was located under status in the advanced menu tab in the version I'm using.

Can anyone explain how to remove the status icons from bottom right corner of the menubar icons? They do not appear in the awake state, but appear in the away and invisible states. I thought I read somewhere that the status icons are used in the menubar icons, but can find out how to remove them.

I did a quick sketch, scanned it, traced my sketch with the lasso tool to create body parts, burned the shadows, then used the lasso tool for selecting highlights. Quick and easy...
I believe it is at 256 px. I ran into this problem with the other dock icon I created because I didn't read instructions first ( I will resize to 128 px and upload later today.
When I get some time, I will probably start from scratch and create something more elaborate with overlays and more animation.

I updated the icons pending reapproval. I believe the problems was the icon size. I had left them at 512 px instead of 128 px. This should fix the problem. I am new to Adium as of last week and probably should have read the instructions first (, but alas...
If you run into this problem again with other Adium dock icons you can simply resize them yourself to 128 px with PS or Preview. You may want to keep the off state .png file at 512 px, above it is the black icon with "Ad" so it isn't pixelated when viewing it in the finder, etc...
Also, if I'm wrong anywhere here, someone let me know. I still a noob.

I didn't put a lot of effort into it. If I revise it, I will have the Away state with the character walking away looking back, like the infamous photo. Maybe the Idle state as a large footprint or maybe have bigfoot hiding behind an evergreen tree? Also, I need variation in the eyes and bill. This was just a rough draft to get some feedback.
Thanks for the positive comments.
