    Welcome to the 8th version of the icon submission thread. I, [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=572785]DVeditor[/link], am the current icon manager. My job is to not only take care of our current images, but also to facilitate and oversee the selection of new icons. These are created by icon artists around the forums, voted on, and then uploaded by me.

    This thread serves as the community for Icon Artists. Here, icon artists/makers post their icons for consideration. As one who creates icons, you should be critiquing each other's work, sharing ideas and comments, and generally participating to increase the quality of JC Icons as a whole.

    Everyone is welcome to submit icons, as this is not a restricted area of the JC community. What IS restricted, though, is the voting. Only users who contribute icons and post in this thread on a consistent basis are invited to vote on which icons should be uploaded. The decision of who is to vote is mine. If icon artists do not contribute regularly and are not active in this thread, they can lose the ability to vote. Remember, ANYONE can submit an icon, just make sure it follows the rules below!

    Common Icon Questions

    When is the next upload?
    Soon! Seriously, this depends on a multitude of factors that cannot fully be expressed here. I will do my best to keep you informed, however.

    I can't find my favorite icon in the current vote - how can it be included in a future one?
    Re-submit it! Sometimes we have several hundred images being carefully considered for future use, and as a result only a percentage can be included in the voting process. If you make an icon that you really like and don't see it in the vote(s), simply include it in your next update or PM me about it and it will be given another shot.

    I don't agree with a decision that was made, what do I do?
    Please [link=http://boards.theforce.net/pm_send.asp?usr=572785]send me a PM[/link] right away - I assure you I will do my best to work things out for everyone.


    The Rules:

    Icon Size

    Icons can be three sizes:
    - 50x50, Regular
    - 90x30, Tall
    - 30x90, Widescreen

    Icon Format

    All icon submissions should be in .gif image format. JPGS can be accepted, but GIF are preferred.

    Icon Content

    All icons must be in some way Star Wars related, or related to other content created by LucasFilm, LucasArts, or other Lucas companies. Icons from official sources is preferred, but usually anything can qualify for the vote if it is modified in some way to tie it into Star Wars or other LFL material (example: Muppets with lightsabers.)

    Any upcoming films that fit into the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/science_fiction_and_fantasy_films_and_television/b10748/p1]Science Fiction and Fantasy: Films/Television[/link] forum can have icons up to the release of the film in the US. If you see a new film being talked about in SFF, feel free to submit icons for it just as you would regular ones.

    Sporting events discussed in [link=http://boards.theforce.net/the_arena/b10777/p1]The Arena[/link] can also have temporary icons during the event - please contact the icon manager for details or requests.

    Note: Special events and/or themes will often be exceptions to this rule. When a new holiday, event, or theme is announced the allowed content will be clarified at that time.


    Your Icon Webpage

    All Active icon artists must maintain a website to archive and advertise their icon work. The page needs to differentiate between new icons and old icons. This will help your fellow icon makers review your material, give constructive criticism, and allow me to go back and search for potential icons for upload. You do not need to add descriptions to your icons, but it can be very helpful for the more obscur

    [link=http://img517.imageshack.us/img517/7494/anakinsi6.gif]Here[/link]'s an icon I made that I'm rather fond of. Pretty much an Anakin version of [link=http://www1.theforce.net/jc/icons/attackoftheclones/obihood.gif]this[/link] icon.

    Thanks for the NBA updates, y'all. :)

    They're a comin'! ;)

    Also, general note for y'all that Monday May 14 is George Lucas' 63rd birthday. If anyone wants to make some birthday-like icons or even more generic GL ones I'll put a few up for that day. Some will probably be left up permanently as well depending on what's submitted. :D

    Other than that, look for a new vote yet this week, the results of the Mara icon voting, and keep up the good work!

    I'd have to say the Boba Fett icon is my favorite from that bunch, Thrawn.

    Nice work. :)
