Been slacking these past few days on account of University things like campus accommodation and student finances, so I'll have to make up for this tomorrow. Not now though, got work till 3am.

Is everyone in America back at school yet? It occurred to me earlier that I haven't a clue when your summer break ends and begins.

While some of you are going back to school, the work I'm starting in September taking care of office duties is based in a school. That doesn't mean I won't have time to make icons at all since I'll finish at 3:30PM/4PM each day, thus giving me roughly 6 hours of icon modding or however long I feel like watching flashes for one day.

This does mean the only time I can go through 100+ flashes in a single day is Sundays so in the future, the insane work like I've done with the Clock Day pages will only occur then.

Uni's starting on the 30th for me, but I'm gonna do a minor and I believe they always have a relaxing schedule for those. I might actually end up having more time for myself after the summer holiday than during, cause I think my friends and gf will be much busier with their studies than me.

So heh, maybe I'll pick up the pace for icon modding a bit and try to get closer to 1,000 icons.

I don't have school yet. It's more personal things that are draining all my time.

I feel like only half of the Icon Mods are actually making Icons...we really need to push hard at it.

I did think that it'll be hard for a lot to maintain their duties after Summer considering the amount of work a fair amount of you will be given. The announcement for the new icon format was great timing since Tom mentioned them in June but now that we're heading to September. All I can suggest to anyone who'll be in school is to do what they can when they have free time. Even a few icons made for the day is better than nothing.

You can't actually track what an icon mod does, unless Tom decides to spend time accessing the database. Just because an icon mod doesn't maintain a list of icons they've done doesn't mean they've done nothing. There are a lot of icons we need to make, and with school coming around, it could slow down more. But it's better to make icons at a steady rate than not at all.

Don't worry Sectus all icon mods are doing there job,if they weren't they wouldn't of been modded in the first place. The only icon mod I can think that fails at its job is Egoraptor.

Speaking of him why do we still have him down as an icon mod. I know he was an art mod before but if he is not halping out do you think he is going to get demodded when the redesign comes?

Most of us will get demodded at the redesign anyway. There's not really any reason why you should care why Egoraptor's an icon mod. It's a pretty minor job anyway. You wouldn't want to accidentally give me forum modship, now do you?

I wouldn't worry about things that can't be help. You guys have school to do and that's most important. Just do what you can when you can and it will all fall in place.

We have accomplished so much ready, and I'm sure all the essential icons have been made. Now it's all about digging further into the Portal and getting at the heart of things, watching movies and playing games that haven't been seen in months or even years. Now we really are getting to the real dirty work of things and it's all about progressing forward. As long as you can devote some time to make a few icons here and there, it will help us to reach our final goal; every little bit really does help.

And don't worry about what you could have done if you have more free time, but rather what you can do with the time you do have.

It's either that, or he'll reward us for being such good workers with higher rates of Modship. Either one could happen, I just can't figure it out.

One icon mod I think is staying is rev. He hasn't been an icon mod for long and he has ade so many icons so I think it would be great if he stayed.

Its simple math

Get redesign and lose icon mod powers > keep old design and keep icon mod powers

Im going to miss being an icon mod but at least I could say I helped make this happen.

If you only wanted to be made an icon mod just so you could become a higher level mod, that wasn't a good decision. We're not guaranteed any kind of reward like higher modship, but those lucky enough may get it.

We may get something like a thanks in the wiki or something, but other than that don't expect much because there's not much they can give.
