Our Flash submit and edit forms now REQUIRE thumbnail submissions (GIF, JPG, PNG, BMP, etc.) and the new size is 140 pixels wide by 90 pixels tall. These new sizes will go public in a future update, when we feel enough submissions are being properly represented.
Our system will create a temporary 46x46 thumbnail for new submissions and existing 46x46 icons will remain in use until the big change takes effect.
Please update your old Flash thumbnails!
You will notice your user page now includes a link to your 140x90 icons (here are mine), to make it easier to see which ones need updating. You can also directly access the edit form from your individual submissions. There's a reference image at the bottom of this post.
If you run into any situation where your image upload doesn't work, PM me with the subject "ICON FAIL" and include any error messages you received on the page and a detailed explanation of what happened. Also include your OS and Browser type and version.
Sorry for the extra work... But change is exciting, right????!!
If you don't have time to update your icons, I have made a volunteer thread where you can post requests and users / icon mods will make them for you.
BTW - monthly voting time! Check your account page to see if you are part of the voting pool to select the Best of May.
Get ready for Robot Day on July 10th!
Well, I'm extremely sad. I took a long time to make all those icons, and now I can't use them. Worse of all, I made all of those icons with my old computer, so I don't have those icons anymore.
Why couldn't you guys make an optional change thing. That would have been so much better.
I'll get started as soon as I fix more hard drive.
