So how does this work? Can anyone request to join? How do you upload new icons?

You can apply by making some sample icons to confirm you have the right software - some people end up outputting really bad images. You can make a few from the list above and post them to /dump/ or post one right here for review.

General tips:
1) Most thumbnails look best in GIF format, a lot of times 128 colors even looks fine (just eyeball for visible image loss).
2) If an image is a photo or otherwise just doesn't look good as a GIF, try JPG.
3) Most icons work in the 3-6k range. You shouldn't need to go over 7k in 99.9% of the situations.

Oh you. I've actually known his flashes to be without icons for a long time now but I felt there were better authors to pay attention to. Unless the list is getting empty, I'll leave this one up in the air.

Haha yeah I can't remember if I ever listed him before or just kept blowing it off. :)

You might have forgotten to upload your icon for Converse Shuffle.

Thanks for bringing that up. I really should double check the flashicon pages before I move on to someone else.

If you could give me a long list of games to work on, that'll be great. I could be more efficient by mixing up games and movies and I have far too little games but 10x more movies.

Also to note about file formats is if you've got a screenshot that contains gradients, use JPG. It looks a whole lot better than what it would look in GIF.

There are some bottom of the barrels that should be left until last but when it comes to those from the main flash groups (i.e. Clock Crew, Lock Legion and Star Syndicate), I'm willing to take on some challenges. However, I think the Clock Crew only have dregs left now. At this point I'm just digging up ANY account with "clock" in its name, even a blatantly unofficial clock like Tomfulp-Clock.

It's hard to say. To be more consistent, if we're going to keep Knox's dubs and such, we should at least keep the others. I suppose they can be taken down if any notices are given.

From the looks of things, we'll have everything Tom posted done. I know I've said this before but if any of you want to do additional work (I'm particularly looking at Travis and Heinrich here ;)), feel free to drop me a PM asking for a bunch of authors to work on.

I happy just lurking the new submissions that pass and make an icon for those, lol, although I haven't done that recently because I've been anxious about getting results, they are in now so it's fine but someone decided to ask me to help on a project, so busy busy again :p

But yeah, I should be making some icons for new submissions and such.

You two have been brilliant this weekend. Everything from the first 5,000 lasting submissions have been assigned. I can't say finished, though since YoungAndWise had a list I gave him but has yet to complete his lot. If he doesn't get back to me soon enough, one of us may have to do them instead. :P

It's awesome to know that icons not on my list are getting done too - NG on the staging server is looking more and more like a complete site - now if only everyone would come back and update their old user icons. :)

Apologies to any mods who still planned to tackle their lists, but here are artists who were called a few weeks ago and not finished:

http://kero-the-boy-killer.newgrounds.co m/flashicons - 3
http://nocturnal-devil.newgrounds.com/fl ashicons
http://riduel.newgrounds.com/flashicons
http://riotcomix-2006.newgrounds.com/fla shicons
http://robsonstudios.newgrounds.com/flas hicons
http://spriter.newgrounds.com/flashicons - 4
http://stormoftara.newgrounds.com/flashi cons

That should complete every artist I've ever named in this thread, I think / hope!

Which means it's time to make more lists.

The lists get a lot longer... 2009 is pretty massive. I'm especially excited about these lists though because there's a lot of neat stuff in them, and it gives another spotlight to some overlooked guys. The 2007 list is short so I'll toss that on now:

Better give you guys a heads up now. On Sunday, I'll be leaving home for my trips in London and Paris. I won't be back until the following Saturday. If you demolish Tom's lists while I'm away, the only authors you can work on are those you stumble across randomly. This is why now is a good time to ask for any lot of submissions from me to work on. Can be 100 or even 500 if you feel you can get that much done apart from Tom's picks. So request now if you want more work. Closing date is Sunday,

One of the perks of being an icon mod is you don't have to stay under the radar! Adding to the collection now.
