    Some icons were deleted yesterday. It is all part of the grand scheme of the new icons process.

    Phase I - Adding new icons (we added 181 icons). complete

    Phase II - The MS voted on icons to delete that were not as popular or were deemed extraneous. complete

    Phase III - Asking icon-creators to submit their recommendations for replacements to current icons with better versions. will be announced tonight

    Out of simple curiosity: Is/ Was there a list of icons that got deleted?
    I only found the site where the icons that will be replaced are listed

    duh - I looked in the wrong thread :p



    EDIT: Maybe I didn't look back far enough (till p.135) but I still didn't find a list of icons-that-were-(to-be-)deleted...
    Do I look for something that never existed?
    Don't let me die curious :(

    [link=http://www.sgtfretsurfer.com/Grilled-Sarlacc/icondelete/deleted.htm]Here are all the icons that were deleted.[/link]

    Also, after we replace current icons with better versions, another vote for deletion will occur. Expect the same number of icons to be deleted (around 10).

    I was under the impression that the 'banned' one was pretty popular... I always hoped the 'A winner is you' would be made public. I really really liked that icon.

    The PA icons were semi-popular in Games for awhile, Dan used the Tycho one until the 42 was uploaded....

    "A winner is you" is a prize icon for Games Tournament winners. I'm working to get it reuploaded for the next video-game play-off (whenever that may be), but it will never be a public icon. You have to earn that baby. ;)

    Also regarding the Penny Arcade icons, please see [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=6121700]my comments in this thread[/link] in the Games forum.

    No offense, but your icon kinda looks assy. It needs some anti-aliasing. But it is you, duh.

    anti-aliasing blurs pixels to soften the edges of the objects so they don't appear jagged.

    Your icon is jagged so that is why he suggest anti-aliasing for that icon.

    That icon was voted to be uploaded, and then also had enough votes for it to be removed. Sorry! There's always a chance it will be uploaded again. And you can always re-submit your icon choices for the next icon process. With so many icons loaded, the pruning process affected even some of the new icons.

    How odd. I seem to recall seeing many many people use the force-ban icon.
