    It is a dark time for the Icon Makers. Although the Icon Deleter has been destroyed, Galactic troops have driven the Icon Makers from their hidden base and pursued them across the internet.<br><p>

    Evading the Galactic Starfleet, a group of artists has established a new possibilities page on the remote ISP of Earthlink.<br><p>

    The evil lord Darth Deleter, obsessed with destroying all icons, has dispatched thousands of remote probe droids into the far reaches of webspace...

    Welcome to the fifth installment of the Icon Submission thread! <br><p>

    Icon Size and Format <br>
    ? Icons must be no larger than 50 x 50 or 90 x 30 pixels in total area, and need to be saved in .gif image format. The 90 x 30 are the new "widescreen" icon format.

    <p>

    Your Icon Webpage <br>
    ? All Active Icon Artists must maintain a website to archive and advertise their icon work. This will help your fellow icon makers review your material, give
    constructive criticism, and for us to go back and search for potential icons for upload. Your icons must be clear representations of Star Wars images and lore. When you post your icon work to your website, please include a description of the icon so it is easily identified. <p>

    JC Icon Familiarity <br>
    ? As an Icon Artist here at the JC, it is advised that you become familiar with the icons currently uploaded. We have quite a few categories with many, many icons.

    Being conscious of what has already been uploaded and what gaps we have in coverage will help you when deciding how to be original and maybe perfect an existing icon that could use replacement. <p>

    Spoiler Images <br>
    ? Images from magazines, the Official Star Wars Site (<b>non-Hyperspace</b>), released images from Lucasfilm, and from the TFN main Ep3 news page are acceptable for use to create icons that will be cosidered for upload. Any leaked images from promo packs, the Hyperspace section of the Official Site, and images from Spy Reports are not acceptable until either Episode III has been released in theaters -or- those images have become public knowledge and fit into one of the acceptable categories. <p>

    Important Links <br>
    ? <a href=http://www.tendra217.ca/IconMakers.html>Active Icon Artists</a><br>
    ?<a href=http://www.pxart.com/starwars/dummies/index.html> Icon Making for Dummies: A Tutorial </a><br>

    A few words from the JC Icon Manager... <p>

    The current Icon Manager is <a href="/user.asp?usr=702667"><span style="color: dimgray;font-weight: bold;font-style: normal;background-color:lightsteelblue;text-decoration: none;border: 1px solid dimgray;">nashira</span></a> <p>

    I. Purpose <br>
    ? First and foremost, this thread is a community, a "hobby thread". It is a place for icon artists to post and share their work with others and critique the work that they see - which helps everyone create the best icons they can. <p>

    II. Active Icon Artists <br>
    ? Everyone is welcome to participate in this community and create icons. After a certain length of time creating and posting icons, one can be given the title of "Active Icon Maker". There is no set date or period length for which you gain this status. It is just a decision that is made when the time is right. And when it happens, I will post the announcement. <p>

    ? Other than gaining a cool title under your username, being an Active Icon Maker means that you are now a voting member of the icon community. You will then
    have the right to vote on what gets uploaded to the JC. Regular icon makers

    Sorry for my absense, I've had a lot to deal with over the past few months. I have some pictures that someone wanted to be made into icons, I'll get round to actually making them when I have some software installed again. If anyone has any suggestions for icons I could make, just let me know.

    odj_310388...can yo upossibly do a WIDESCREEN version of that one (Luke igniting his ROTJ lightsaber)? I'd like to have either that or a widescreen of the one I currently have.

    Clonetroopers in a firefight is pretty awesome as well!

    Take a whiff of that new thread smell...

    My computer's broken for the moment and my new batch of icons is stuck on it. It should be back up in about a day, so I think I'll vote in the meantime...

    My Votes:
    ALL :D

    Praise later when new batch is posted, but they all look very good!

    Good work. Keira's lookin' fine as usual. ;)

    Krash, it really depends on nashira at this point. I'd guess you could "promote" some icons, but i'd only think as far as the Possibilities page. That takes away from our whole Democracy of voting to just upload it straight onto the board.
