I use Fireworks 8. Despite it not being fully compatible with Vista (it goes to Vista Basic when used), it's the most convenient software to use I know besides Photoshop. Still, it's helped me made tons of icons and with a 4GB RAM laptop, it's made things easy.

As a matter of fact, winning User of the Year encouraged me to make more icons. I only wonder what would have happened if I didn't resume to icon modding after my job contract was reduced to two days a week.

Mac users, download "Capture Me". It's probably the best program I've used to make icons. It saves you a lot of time. Also saves awesome gif quality and keeps low file size!

Tim ran the numbers on how many 140x90 thumbnails we have!

So NG has 194,934 submissions.

93,028 of them have 140x90 thumbnails!

That is AWESOME!!! When we hit 100k we'll have passed the halfway mark. With the redesign FINALLY requiring people to submit their own thumbnails, there's even a chance we could do something that was never accomplished in the past decade - THUMBNAILS FOR EVERYTHING. :P

It's a rather scary thought that I've made roughly 10,000 of them. What would this site do without me?

I think your 10,000 has had an exponential impact in the motivation it creates for other mods. I know it's the reason I've made as many as I have - we have a real "community" here and everyone keeps each other motivated. When you bang out lists at a time when no one else is, everyone else gets inspired to keep chipping away because you make the goal look attainable. Sooo.. THANK YOU! :)

Actually, I already claimed this guy but I'm willing to let him go and allow you to make the icons for him instead. I've got a few things to take care of right now so I may as well ease up on the artists I've claimed.

These are all just image galleries. They aren't porn, but they are just stolen pics from other sites. Do what with them?

Just posting here to make you know guys that I'm still active. I also want to say that I prefer searching icons by myself instead of calling dibs here, lol.
But actually, I find a lot of icon-less submissions in the list of submissions needing genres by popularity.

Just letting you know guys :)

Tempted to delete them but I'll let them slide since they are based on old forum threads... Although that isn't a rule going into the future.... Might still delete these later. :)

Going to start doing icons again by taking these first 5... hopefully they don't have a lot of submissions. Haven't checked yet.

It's always surprising to see who still doesn't have thumbnails... I just made them for this guy:

Anyone remember these? :)

Not one I recall but another guy I'm surprised hasn't had his icons done yet is ClassicCoolboyman. Maybe not enough people remember him for being the mastermind behind StrawberryClock. I've done 20 of his submissions so far but he's a real challenge with all those boring as fuck "Collection" flashes. I don't think doing it all at once will do good for my mind.
