    Because the old thread was nearing the 5k post mark and already causing problems, I'm taking it upon myself to create a new thread. From the sounds of it over in [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=6417352&replies=19]To whoever is upping the thread in here...[/link] anyone can restart it, so I am. :)

    Many thanks to Whimper for the original Custom Icon Submission thread. He said it so well, I'm quoting him from here on out (since he's no longer with us :():

    [blockquote]
    As per [hl=green]NathanDahlin[/hl]'s post @ [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=2677424]Icons[/link] please submit your own icon creations for review by Nat and the mods. If they're good, there may be (just maybe) a chance that they become official icons here on the JC.

    Note: Please be aware that not everyone is spoiled for Episode3. Make your icons accordingly. A spoiler stops being a spoiler when it is posted at the Official Site (ie, a name, image, story/plot idea, etc).

    Regular User Icons must be 50x50 pixels in size, and be clear representations of Star Wars characters or insignias. Include in your post a description of the icon, and a hyper-link to the image.

    Icons will be uploaded on a regular, monthly schedule. To find out which icons are under consideration, please go the [link=http://www.geocities.com/lordbane_archive/icons.html]The JC Icon Waiting Room[/link]. The first cut is the raw group of icons culled from over thirty artists' websites (as well as miscellaneous requests). The second cut is taken from the first and the third and final cut will be uploaded. Every icon on the aforementioned page will be uploaded in due time, but just because it makes it past the first cut one time, it doesn't mean it will automatically be in the second cut the next. When uploading, we look for diversity in the icons. Please keep this in mind.

    The current Icon Managers are [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=229118]Lord Bane[/link] and [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=242022]Kadue[/link].


    NathanDahlin - [Disclaimer] I wrote this without consulting any other admins, but here's the deal as I see it:

    We're adding new icons as much as possible, but it's a slow process. If you know of a character that you think would be a big hit (e.g. Lobot, Mace Windu, Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon, etc.), just make your own icon in gif format...50 X 50 pixels in size and send me a URL to it. I'll then post it in the Admin-only forum for Nic to use.

    The beauty of this is that you, my fellow JCers, may be able to be a part of the creation of these icons (and did I mention that it'll get you the icons you want a lot quicker? ). It'll be a bit of work, but as of right now I think the only person actively working on icons is Amy Pronovost (ArtyEwok) and we don't want her to shoulder all the burden.

    Now, I don't think we'll be able to do personalized images (e.g. a picture of your face or pet), but if you want to make one that you'd be willing to share with hundreds of like-minded SW fans, more power to you!

    Happy pic-making![/blockquote]

    And finally, a link to all the [link=http://smalltown.8m.net/iconmakers.html]icon pages[/link].

    Edit by [hl=lightcyan]Lobot_Omy[/hl]: Just edited some parts of this post to keep it up to date. :D

    :eek: Eep! You're right, Lolipon! I hadn't even thought of that. [face_blush] Many of us (including myself) will need to update the link to this thread on their page. I'll do it on my either this evening or tomorrow. :)

    In case anybody forgets to do this, I did include a link to this thread at the bottom of the old one. ;)

    Well either I messed something up or GeoCities took a crap on me. Either way, my icon page is nothing but a blank screen at the moment. I'll work on getting them back up in the next day or so.

    This will be a day long remembered. RIP old icons thread.

    Behold a link to my icons, for those who care. Here you will find Princess Leia out the wazoo, posters, George Lucas jokes and the almighty "Pimp Yoda" icon. Truly an icon repository to be cherished and treasured for years to come.

    ANYWAY...

    Can people make requests in here? I'm not very good at editing and stuff.

    If anyone can, I'd like one of the new Owen Lars from AOTC. My girlfriend would get a kick out of having Joel Edgerton as my icon since she has a bit of thing for him.

    Anyway, thanks.

    YAY!! New thread!!! Thanks Bria! :)

    And, since we're brand-spanking new in here, [link=http://members.cox.net/kreleia/icons.htm]here's my icon site[/link]. **starts chanting** Handmaidens! Handmaidens! Handmaidens!...

    Wedge3210, I think there *is* a young Owen/Joel Edgerton icon already. Would that one work for you, or do you want a different version? :)

    No problem! :) Those triple and quadruple posts were getting annoying. :p ;)

    *looks up* OH!!!! KADUE!!! Mr.Bluemoon is returning!!! :) That's great. :D It's probably easier for the icons being uploaded if there are two people handeling them. ;) :)

    Hi, I'm a brand new City Rep, but I am rather attached to my old icon. :)

    Would some kind soul out there be willing to add the "City Rep" label to the icon of the stormtrooper holding the doughnut? I'd be very grateful...

    Hats off, by the way, to whoever created it in the first place! Whenever I see it, I think of "Look, Sir! Doughnuts!" :)

    Cheers,

    - Rani

    EDIT: Could either LordBane or Kadue put the link to the List of JC Icon Makers in the first post? It might be useful :)
