Exactly. So basically it will look a lot nicer, although it isn't mandatory.

Well, thats gay!

So how exactly do you guys get yours that clear? Like how do you screenshot?

Every time I try it comes out terribly.

Hit the screenshot key on your keyboard at the moment you want it for the icon, then put it into photoshop or flash whatever you use, and crop it and save it as an image file like a JPEG. also if you're on a laptop the prt sc key is fn + insert, or atleast it is on my laptop.

I should start doing that. But I don't think popular flash authors read PM's, because most of them get a shitload of PM's.

Just a tip, guys, for those of you who didn't know and are struggling with compression.

In Photoshop, you can go to "File > Save For Web and Devices" to save as high quality GIF, JPEG, or PNG with an extremely low file size.

Which brings me to my next point...

Where can we find people in need of icons?

Just wait for people too ask. After the redesign, this thread will probably get a lot more attention.

Just send them to me in a PM, i'll upload them to the flashes for you. Also, link what the author's name is of course with it as the title of the PM.

I made an icon for the Pirate Collab

Bertn seems to have disappeared from Newgrounds.
So I just thought i'd whip it up. If a mod could switch it out, that'd be great thanks.

Did Egoraptor use any of yours?

I don't think Ego has been online today to check my PM.

I think Alaska would be pretty helpful working with us. He knows what he's doing and he seemed enthusiastic last I spoke with him.

My two cents.

I have enough Photoshop skill and free time to make some icons.

So do we just wait for authors to post here asking for help? Or should we send PMs asking anyone if want their icons made? How do we do this?

Hey Tom, is nudity forbidden in icons? I ask because I was chewing through Christmas 2002 and I noticed SackSmash03 already had an icon with a blurred penis. Are there any rules to icon production we should be aware of?

You can drop me a PM if you need help with your icons.

I made over 3,000 icons for the past 46x46 system and would like to get back into that as this was my thing.

Once again, I'm free, and if you would like me to make icons for your flashes, I can make them. PM me if interested.

I just made a few for Aprime (4 of them that were left). So yeah, I'm free now.

Also, I'm wondering: do I have to contact the author (as I have done so far) and show them the new icons or do I have to ask icon mods to add them without the consent of the author? :P

I can do that. You'll have to specify exactly what you want. Just the awesome face in front of the bigmac?

ask the author, if theres no reply then contact an icon mod, as has been said, be careful with the more well known or active people, they may want to do their own

I'm going to have to say this on every page then. Don't do icons for active flash authors unless they give you the OK to. Some may want to do them themselves so you'd only be wasting your time.

Yea. Although doing one as a sample might not be such a poor idea. If the author is really NG-famous act professional ;)

I did that because I wasn't sure if Dan would personally want a penis in his icon. If a submission isn't rated ADULT I would definitely avoid nudity. If it is rated ADULT I would still try to avoid it... Even though we will have some expanded filter options, it still won't guarantee people won't get unwanted boobs in their face.
