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
So are they uhh replacing it or what?
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
Could any links pertaining to this be posted here? I miss my PA icon and want to know more of this "replacing" that will occur.
they have been discussing it in the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=6436614]Custom Icon Submission thread[/link]...
duh - I looked in the wrong thread
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).
Good, none I care for there
Thank you, GS
Wasn't the "Banned" one just uploaded?
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....
Yeah, Dan used them, ^ used them, I used them, PreacherBoy used them, and a whole bunch of other people used them when they first were released.
citizen-tom: I, too, was hoping that "A winner is you" would be made public... and I liked the Darth Kimball and "Banned" icons, well, what can I do...
"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.
Well i hope my icon wont be removed, ive grown attatched to it ::im weird::

No offense, but your icon kinda looks assy. It needs some anti-aliasing. But it is you, duh.
Anyway i have no idea what your icon actually is, so i wont comment lol
Comic Book Guy
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.
ah-ok. now i have to go find some one to do that, because i have no idea, dont want t o get this icon deleted
Thanks for your help

Beowulf81 is the one who made that Comic Book Guy icon.
How come my Force Ban icon got deleted? It was a brand new addition in the last update. ? ? ? ? ?
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.
