    Welcome back!

    We've missed you. :)

    I submitted some ultra-late votes. [face_whistling]



    Resubmitting these two icons, because they had the wrong names:

    So not only did I run out of time to get those icons up . . . I also forgot to post the new round :oops: Sorry about that, guys.

    This round is due Sunday at 3 p.m. boardtime.

    Also, something I was thinking about while I was counting votes. I usually just go for a straight icons must have three votes or a special circumstance (I pull one every once in a while for being unique or with a character we don't have). Sometimes that's a large percent of the voting round, and sometimes not. What do you all think an average good percent is? (Like, around what should we be aiming for?)

    It's very hard to say. Some batches are really strong, others are weaker. Also, opinions on what is strong and what is weak vary.

    Sometimes icons get put up of which we already have a lot of versions. Sometimes we end up with several icons that were taken from the same still/image. However, checking that out for every icon would just be extremely tedious.

    I think quality is an issue too. Some people submit really dark and/or fuzzy icons, which I think is a pain to look at.

    (Sometimes this is unavoidable because sources are limited/rare. For example, I recently made some Delta Squad icons which were taken from a low quality preview of Clone Wars season 3. I know they're not my normal standard of quality, but at least I did everything I could to improve brightness and sharpness.)

    I wouldn't go for an average percentage if I were you...

    EDIT: Voted!

    Oh, I know. And I'm still planning do count by votes, not by percent. I just want to know what you all think (if you have an opinion one way or another).

    I agree about the loading of icons that are basically the same shot only in a different angle. Some of them bring out a new detail that its counterpart didn't, but I also give it to Humble, checking for that would be a tedious job. I usually keep an eye out on the number of icons we got of the character/thing, trying to balance that out a little.

    To answer the question: I think it depends on how many people vote regularly. I mean is three votes for an icon hard to get at the moment or is it so easy to accumulate?

    By the way I voted.

    It honestly depends on the round. I like to get at least 5 or 6 people to vote before we move on. Sometimes that means a lot of icons, and sometimes it doesn't.

    I'd say go with 33.33% of the votes, Nat. Is that precise enough for you? :p

    Seriously, maybe if 1/3 of the voters have chosen a particular icon? But I don't know if it really makes sense to do it that way. I think it really depends on how many people voted during that round, the quality of that batch of icons, whether those icons need to be passed through because of special circumstances, etc. Basically, I haven't been dissatisfied with the way you're currently doing it.

    And voted!

    Well, I'm glad everyone seems happy with the system :p

    I've been putting icons up (kind of out of order, but they're going up!). And I just grabbed one of those error icons and put it up as a joke :D

    Ok, I know I make a lot of requests on this thread but I swear, I do it for the betterment of icons for Comics and Expanded Universe.[face_flag]
    This time I'm making a personal Halloween request. I know there has been the Halloween icon trimming that has gone on all year so this may be an out of the question request. But is it possible to have a Don Draper Halloween icon? Just one?

    I'm posting an image or three. I of course understand if this dream of mine doesn't become a reality.

    Thanks in advance icon staff!:)

    That's fine :) (Though two of your images aren't showing up for me.) I'll put up a few new ones (the process is actually FINALLY about done).


    I know this is a bit late, but we still need a couple more votes. If a few more people send them in over the next few days, that'd be awesome . . .
