    please, please Save My Icon...
    i love this one, it is my vicarious identity marker... it's colourful compared to so many that are dark - please, maintain balance on the JC by keeping sunlit Leia...

    please

    ps: as i said in a thread on the Community Board - i will give you a dollar to keep this icon - surely that should maintain the minuscule upkeep of my beloved icon...
    i'm not even kidding - give me an address**! i'll send the dollar tomorrow!

    **a legitimate TF.N address ;)

    Thanks for all the support for Tahiri. :)

    I can't access Kadue's page at the moment, so some comments are based on memory. Others are just icons I think could possibly go. If they're an icon you created, I'm not attacking the you, just being objective on the *icon*. :) I think that most of mine that are listed should go. ;)

    So that I don't fill the page with huge icons, I'm just going to use links. ;)

    http://www1.theforce.net/icons/publicicons/jango_obi.gif (funny at first but don't consider it a keeper)
    http://www1.theforce.net/icons/publicicons/anilaugh.gif (this one instead of the other Forbidden Love picnic Ani)
    http://www1.theforce.net/icons/publicicons/JCclones.gif (I can't recall the last time I saw this used and users can use the smilie itself ;))
    http://www1.theforce.net/icons/publicicons/chewy_endor.gif (this chewie instead)
    http://www1.theforce.net/icons/publicicons/FLDooku.gif (this one instead)
    http://www1.theforce.net/icons/publicicons/practically identical to the picture one, just in a cartoon
    http://www1.theforce.net/icons/publicicons/jarjar_down.gif (instead of AOTC Jar Jar)
    http://www1.theforce.net/icons/publicicons/landocal.gif (instead of the original Lando..)
    lobot.gif (why have two?)
    http://www1.theforce.net/icons/publicicons/n1starfighter2.gif (why have two?)
    http://www1.theforce.net/icons/publicicons/whatareyoulookingat.gif (better choice than Obi-Wan VF)
    http://www1.theforce.net/icons/publicicons/quigon_duel.gif (I'd rather see this QG of mine go than the other one-QuiGon2, I made)
    http://www1.theforce.net/icons/publicicons/sabe.gif (if a Sabe *has* to go, then I agree with the choice of which to go... this one is more... rough... but I'd prefer it not to go
    http://www1.theforce.net/icons/publicicons/sleia.gif ... I *totally* agree. I've never liked that icon. The colors are just icky, IMHO. There are better Slave Leia icons than that one (sorry to those that like it...)
    http://www1.theforce.net/icons/publicicons/stormtoon.gif (it's just a Stormtrooper icon... )
    http://www1.theforce.net/icons/publicicons/vaderconcept.gif (better choice)
    http://www1.theforce.net/icons/publicicons/vong.gif (there is a better Vong icon)

    I also do not think Shira Brie should go. There's so few Marvel icons, as many have pointed out. I'd say let those remain, but if I had to pick I'd go with Blackhole.

    Jaina, Jacen and Mara are important EU characters. Please spare them from the icon deletion.

    Save Lando. The icons need more diversity.

    First Row:
    Ani/Padmé kiss (while I still think it needs a border, it?s still a good icon & popular)

    Second Row:
    --

    Third Row:
    --

    Fourth Row:
    Chewie (it?s a good picture of him)

    Fifth Row:
    --

    Sixth Row:
    --

    Seventh Row:
    Han/Leia kiss (come on.. it?s classic!), Han w/ blue background (Definitely need some Han representation here)

    Eighth Row:
    --

    9th:
    --

    10:
    Leia w/ blue background (it?s a good pic & popular)

    11:

    14:
    --

    15:
    Padmé in blue, while I think it could be deleted, it's because it was poorly made, when I originally made it I was just trying to get trailer icons out really fast, it?s still popular and I ask that it be replaced with my updated version ( link )

    16:

    17:
    --

    18:
    Sio Bibble (I always thought this was a well made icon, and I think it?s the only one of him)

    19:
    Tahiri (I not into EU as much as I used be, but apparently she?s a very popular character)

    20:
    --

    21:
    Sandperson (I didn?t know this one was on there, but now that I?ve seen it, I think it?s a pretty good icon)

    22:
    Vader w/ red background (It?s a good icon)



    I think I messed up my row count, but you get the idea.

    While I agree with a lot of your choices, I think there are some where the subject is good but the icon was just made poorly. Maybe this will encourage icon makers in the future to make really top-notch icons if we all know there will be future cuts.


    And 1 new icon today (even though I really made it a few days ago, I?ve just been taking a break from the computer :) )

    Don't kill my Han. It shows his lovable rogue side. I know I'm not the only one who uses it either, which is more than I can say for some of the ones that aren't on the chopping block.

    Also, I think the Jake Lloyd one should stay because there aren't that many of poor Jake.

    PLEASE don't axe the 2 Qui-Gon icons! He only has 3, for goodness sake! And I am very suprised so many AOTC icons are being removed before the movie has even opened!

    Row 8 - VF Obi

    Row 9 - JA Qui-Gon

    Row 14 - TPM Obi

    Row 15 - All 3 Padme's are VERY popular

    Row 17 - Qui-Gon

    All the Anakin and Padme ones are very popular, and I am surprised they are on the list. I hope the above ones aren't removed, it was so hard to find good ones for all my (3) socks.

    Oh come on! [face_plain] [face_plain] [face_plain] and...
      [face_plain]
    Please, you cannot remove the best icon available here:
      [image=http://www1.theforce.net/icons/publicicons/shira.gif]
    It is one of the most efficient icons available - containing Darth Vader, the Imperial Symbol, as well as Shira Brie. It is also an icon of one of the most important expanded universe characters available - the original red-haired Emperor's Hand and the only confirmed Sith Lord still available through the New Jedi Order era.

    I've had the thing as my icon since it first became available, and I certainly haven't been the only one who's used it.

    You can't ditch the Shira Brie icon. Dark Horse Comics is republishing all her original stories in their entirety beginning in a month and a half. LFL certainly thinks the fan support for her character is available. And they're correct, it is.

    Oh, in case I forgot... [face_plain]

    Keep Shira Brie!

    addendum to my previous plea to save the icon called leia_icon2.gif (the one i am currently using)...

    i did not mean to imply that it was "my" icon - i'm sorry if it came across that way - i didn't make it; some other talented person made it and i LOVE it... i really, really do...

    if groveling counts for anything here, i will gladly type further messages while on my knees...

    Please Do Not Delete leia_icon2.gif

    What Genghis12 said. :) Shira is a great character, and with the reprints, more fans will come to know her. ;)

    Okay guys, no need to constantly state cases for icons, once is enough as I'm just getting a feel for what should stay and go.

    I've already started going through your lists, and writing my replies to it.

    I just want to state that please don't take the Luke/pyre one. Its really a good one, and one that I had planned on keeping for a while, and I know I am not the only one that uses it. Plus, you are taking away most of the Padme, Anakin, EU characters, Han, Leia, Luke, the only TPM Obi, and the best two Qui-gon icons, most of these are very popular with the members. I agree that the podracers and N'Snyc ones should go, as well as the less popular ones, or the ones that don't get used at all.

    I've only posted here once, but I thought I would throw in my two cents too. Like everyone else, I am a little confused as to the criteria used to come up with the elimination list. Here are a few of my comments.

    Obviously, I would hate to see the handmaidens go. The Sabé icon is used by half the members of the RHS and I have seen the Yané and Saché once used by many people as well. Come on, those poor handmaidens get overlooked enough.

    Have to agree with all the Han comments. Why keep those two?

    You're eliminating all young Obi-Wans but two. There will be no Padawan icon. And I love the VF Obi-Wan.

    Are any of the icons on the list admin icons? There are almost 60 of those, and I'm curious if any of those will be going. No offense, just wondering.

    How about getting rid of some of the real people icons. Two Natalies? A funny Ben Burtt. (I love the guy, but haven't seen that one used.) And do we really need an icon of the woman who played a bounty hunter for two seconds? I have never seen anyone use it. Come on, we don't even have an Ewan icon. Dump her!

    Do you have to get rid of a certain amount of icons, or just as many as you can? I'm sure you're getting a lot of complaints, but people have opinions about this. This post had mine. Thanks for listening :)

    hmm, well I'm kinda freaked to this Ackbar Icon with the rebel insignia in the background. I don't hope it'll be removed :(

    I had a Calamari icon way back in the fan force days so I'd love to keep it. They already changed it once ('they' put the insignia in the background) so please don't change it again... I do know there is another Mon Calamari Icon, but that one isn't really good and it isn't ackbar.

    well that's it then - keep admiral ackbar :)

    *starts praying they don't remove the icon* :D

    What will happen to users who are gone whose icons are being deleted (I'm thinking specifically of Whimper, but I'm sure there are more cases)? Will all of thier old posts will have a big fat red X underneath thier names?

    Flying Dutchman - There are actually two Ackbars up, and the one with the insignia is the worse of the two.

    GasCabbie - Nope, the icon will just disappear.

    Please don't remove my Boba Fett in Holiday Special Icon, I think it's very humourus, and I like it a lot.

    Yes, that is correct about the Han and coke one I did.
    Cleo did not want to have any icons where a gun was being pointed at the user.

    I replaced the gun with a Coke glass. It's funny, but since it was one of my first icons, it is not the best quality. I don't mind losing it.


    And page loading time really isn't an issue here. If you have your page set to display 50 messages, you will need 50 icons no matter what. All of them could be different, or some of them could be the same.
    Unless we reduced the number of total icons below 50, there is always the possibility of getting 50 different icons, even when reducing the number of total icons.
    And once they're loaded (like someone already said) they are stored in temp internet files, so don't have to be reloaded again.

    I must say, I have no problem letting some handmaiden icons go, if that means that we can get some new up in the next batch, you must agree on that it is better to have handmaidens in different costumes than everybody wearing red.

    I also think that most icons of real persons could go, the only one I've seen used is the "dark" Natalie, which on the contrary is widely used.

    Well, if you want reasons why I feel my icon should not be removed:

    I really feel it's the better Jaina icon. I love this icon, I've used it forever, and I can't imagine using another one.

    I bet you: Please let it stay! :_|

    Yeah, it'd be weird to see Reb using another icon... Very weird. :)

    Like, for example, hum... Darth Vader with a golden bikini. Or R2D2 in a tutu. Or C-3PO breakdancing. Or...

    Well, you take my meaning...

    I think I'm going to retire from icon making. I haven't done all that many, and the others that are here do a much better job. Still, I really like the ones I've made, and would love to see a few more on the boards. I'm sure once things calm down after Episode 2 comes out, I'll be able to start up again. But for now, I'm in retirement.

    Here's my icon page for those who care:
    kreleia's icons

    And here's one more HUGE push (from me) for my Rabé and Eirtaé icons. HANDMAIDENS!!! :)

    Thanks all!
