I like this idea myself, it will assuredly help users and search engine results if commonly-associated acronyms were used as means to tag submissions.

As for my end of the day report, the following has been noted:
*The first forty pages of the keyword 'action' when looking through the search engine have been amended and there are no submissions which have the default thumbnail as their icon anymore.

However, I did not check the submissions which do already have icons, but I did check all of a user's submissions when I came across a default thumbnail to see if I could fill the rest out.

*Games featured on the Action games page that did not have new icons were given one.
*Coinciding with the latter note, I also gave all Flash authors who have a game featured on the noted page and <5 other submissions new icons for their other works.
*I have compiled a list of featured authors who are in great need of new icons for their submissions. : I don't know what the skinny is for pointing these out to other icon mods, but if anyone here needs some pointing out, I'll gladly reveal them through a PM.

I guess it was a pretty good first day, I'll probably tackle some other category at a later time. I don't know what specific collection I want to make a stake on, so I'll probably just go through each one in alphabetical order and try to pick up the slack laying around.

Looks like my next stop will be in Adult Features - I'll be rather surprised if no one else has taken this task yet. I'd say it is critically important that these are fixed up for the update, as many users and outside traffic enjoy the more mature content that is available on Newgrounds.


Take care of yourself.

As do I friend. Since his site has been gone I have to resort to using the random flash entry button and making icons. I haven't been doing much icons lately cause of lots of school and trying not to fail a grade.

With the m00d.net site it would take me about ten minutes for 7-12 icons, but now it takes a good five minutes to even find submissions to create icons for.

Why didn't I take the meet an opportunity to ask him about the icon mods site? Ah well, we can always send him a PM and see what he thinks. I'll admit, I've been AWOL from icon modding for a long time now but the recent activity from others is giving me some energy again.

Yep, welcome to the icon mod team as well as the others who were icon modded over the weekend. I'll have to see how much bigger we've become tomorrow when the FAQ updates.

Been at it for the past 3 days. Done one collection a night - even Mario. :P

Anyhow, how things run down here? Tom just drops off a list now and then?

yeah now it's like that. There used to be a website that we'd go to so that we could find people that need icons instantly, but it was taken down.

He pops in regularly to give us more artists to work on. That reminds me, I had an old spreadsheet that I had to keep a list of flash authors who needed icons. It hasn't been updated ever since citricsquid made his icon mod site but I'm sure there's still many on the list who need icons so I can provide some once you guys are done with the most recent artists Tom posted here.

You can also search around and find stuff in need of icons, but I try to post lists for anyone who wants to call dibs on something and not go look. Here are two that no one ever called dibs on:

Also whoever does Snubby will at the same time do the Duck Luck series:

I hope nobody minds, but I am going to regularly post my most recent completed tasks in this thread to keep everyone on the up-and-know on what has been cleared and what areas need attention.

Noted authors that require new icons for their submissions:
-wilsonbb, needs 19 new icons.
-the-mercenary, needs 28 new icons.
-tastylamp, needs 5 new icons.
-framar, needs 23 new icons.
-pcpr0gramer, needs 7 new icons
-bulortio, needs 10 new icons.
-skeik-sprite, needs 27 new icons.
-robotube, needs 10 new icons.
-Masterfury, needs 27 new icons.
-phasez, needs 13 new icons.

...I have plenty more authors noted who need icons, but I will wait for these to be completed first - feel free to make your claim on any.

Personal summary for 1/15/11:
*Collection - Adult Toons, completed (all featured Flash have icons).
*Collection - Adult Games, completed (all featured Flash have icons).
*Collection - Shapes, completed (all featured Flash have icons).
*Author - mrkikkeli, completed (all submissions have new icons).
*Author - sim-man, completed (all submissions have new icons).
*Author - DisasturJason, completed (all submissions have new icons).
*Author - bseenmedia, completed (all submissions have new icons).
*Author - Yep123, completed (all submissions have new icons).
*Author - fictitious-egg, completed (all submissions have new icons).
*Author - redhammer01, completed (all submissions have new icons).
*Author - Tehkar, completed (all submissions have new icons).
*Author - anvira, completed (all submissions have new icons).
Total new icons created - 55+

Personal summary for 1/16/11:
*Collection - Dress Up Hentai, completed (all featured Flash have icons).
*Collection - Dating Sims, completed (all featured Flash have icons).
*Author - Scazrelet, completed (all submissions have new icons).
*Author - Excel-Excel, completed (all submissions have new icons).

*Author - KierEmJ, completed (all submissions have new icons).
*Author - Mosuke, completed (all submissions have new icons).
*Author - Shadow-Kaznama, completed (all submissions have new icons).
*Author - johnnybdesign, completed (all submissions have new icons).
*Author - Ramiriez, completed (all submissions have new icons).
*Author - Intrepid-Dusk, completed (all submissions have new icons).
*Author - leonizer, completed (all submissions have new icons).
*Author - AlphaBetaCom, completed (all submissions have new icons)
*Author - MessYouUpMac, completed (all submissions have new icons).
Total new icons created - 88

...

So, how is everyone? I have noticed that a few icons that were uploaded by others for a Flash are not quite up to par with the way I feel it should be represented, but otherwise, I seldom check or replace an icon that someone else has put up for a submission. Is there any particular way that one must icon mod, or does everyone just tackle one artist or collection at a time?

I tend to go through all of the featured submissions in a collection and check to see if any are missing icons. If they are, I give them new icons and then check the author's page to see if there are any other Flash that need new icons. I have not given thought to also doing this for the "users who liked this also enjoyed..." under 'related submissions' because I felt it would take much longer to go through the collections. However, I feel it is also necessary to look at them so that nothing gets left out.


Take care of yourself.

That pretty much sums it up - find a submission that's missing an icon, then make icons for all the stuff by that author. And it's a nice touch to update the "most recommended" submissions at the bottom of the page as well, as they are often popular / high ranking.

Thanks for tackling all those collections and users!!!
