Maybe we should keep a list like that on a news post ...so it can be updated with additions, and links removed when they're done... just until tom starts doling out the lists (if that's still the plan). We could even make a communal account (similar to art101) so a bunch of people could get to it and keep it up to date.

Giving everyone access might lead to problems.

Just a thought.

Question, fellas and she-fellas:

What's the deal with cartoon nudity in a humorous context? I'm working on this which only features a cartoon dong as the art. Seriously, nothing else but JPEGS in the back. Am I to use the cartoony dong, which really isn't a sexual thing (the cartoon just recites a played out joke) or am I to use something else from the Flash which is not representative of the subject (or even a main point)?

Hur hur hur I made the thread NSFW.

That's not a bad idea. Talking about inactive people, I'm making icons for The-EXP's flashes... He has A LOT of them...

Fun it may be but I'd hate to see it. To me, it's no contest or anything. I don't care how many icons others have made, I'll just do my own bit at my own pace rather than competing for making the most icons. I might keep track on the list of authors I've done for future reference but that'll be it for me.

Tom, is anything going to be done with the icon helpers page? It seems pretty useless now since no one can use it, but if suggestions are taken it could be used for us to personally keep track of submissions that need icons or have our little leader board thing if some of us still want to go with that for fun.

Or maybe I'm just being gay again srry if I am.

Wow, it was a terrible idea to do icons for The-WalrusZ. So much work. Most of his art came from JPEGs in the Flash, which made it incredibly difficult to make good icons. I managed some nice ones for the productions with original art, though.

Also, here's my list of icons. Doing icons for artists with like 50 Flashes makes it seem like I'm slacking off, so I put the total at the bottom, totally not because this is a contest... which it's not...

I'm done for now. Off to go learn about macroeconomics!

I would like to see a page like this as well. We'll eventually get to the bottom of the barrel for making new icons and a page telling us which flashes still need new icons would be brilliant.

Apologies for the double post but I just finished working on TheGreyPilgrim's flashes and now I'll be focusing on Weebl. There's quite a bit to do so it'll keep me occupied.

The problem is that it's impossible to know the amount of icons that each person did. Maybe the Admins know (they may have a way to keep track of the things we do), but if they do know they are not going to reveal the numbers just so you can make a list.

Besides, I also think that making a list for us to compete is a bad idea. First of all, we're doing this to help Newgrounds. If someone doesn't agree with this, then he/she shouldn't have become an icon mod in the first place. We shouldn't keep track of the icons we make unless it is for informational purposes only, and we shouldn't care about the amount of icons done by other people.

Secondly, if this is became a competition, some people would start to submit a lot of crappy icons just to boost their amounts of icons submitted, which would be counterproductive, considering that our goal is to provide Newgrounds with quality icons. This does not only help to make the transition into the oncoming redesign smoother, but it also makes the site look better.

That being said, I really hope that we're kept in the dark about how many icons each person makes, the same way that we cannot see our whistle points.

We do track who submits what icons so ultimately I hope to have a page that shows what everyone did. It's just bad timing to push for that because the next site update has everyone under a lot of pressure / stress right now.

To put it all in context... The icon helpers page was made by liljim and currently isn't working properly even for the old icon type. The new icon submission system was made by Rob, who does things in a very different way than liljim. To update the old icon helpers page would either involve liljim getting up to speed on how Rob is handling the new icons, or Rob potentially rewriting the entire system to mesh with what he has done for the site update. Either way we can't prioritize it right now because there is a lot of work to do if we're ever gonna see the next site update, and a lot of other features are in a holding pattern until the next update happens.

Ultimately it would be cool to get it working again, but every little feature and adjustment pushes everything else back by days / weeks / months.

Valid concerns about having a leaderboard... I definitely don't want to see the icon quality get crappy in an attempt to have the most icons. I'll say it's all up in the air for now - just make icons for the good of making them and feel welcome to share your lists because it's fun to see everyone get filled in. It's good to feel proud of the icons you've made and I don't think anyone has been acting hyper-competitive about it, it feels more like a show-and-tell vibe to me.

I'm gonna do a few in the center of FWG so maybe everyone can meet in the middle.

That would be a nice addition to the job I guess. To see how many icons users have uploaded and it would be also a nice place to see our own progress. However, I would like a page like this BUT we could see WHAT flashes we have made icons for. Granted, we have to have our own personal record, to which I have.

Unlike Slap and EJR... I don't have a newspost set up as my own personal record. I just label the icons I make as the flash that I have made it for. Then I can find them later on if needs be just by searching for the flashes :)

It's just bad timing to push for that because the next site update has everyone under a lot of pressure / stress right now.

Oooo Site update. That sounds brilliant! I understand that you must be very stressed about the update, so I don't think we will push you for a "leader board" as much. It'll come when it's ready :)

Bleh. It's surprising how so many little things can put back a project by so much. I suppose getting teh big things out of the way though, make room for the smaller projects to come afterwards.

I wouldn't think that's what would happen anyway. I think most of us are mature enough here to make sure that the leaderboard is to have a little competitive fun, and track our own record, and not to just get to the top of it in a rush attempt at stat whoringness. I doubt that would happen.

I'm gonna do a few in the center of FWG so maybe everyone can meet in the middle.

Sounds like a plan to me. These flashes are starting to bug me though... Some are so similar, and it's hard to get a good enough icon sometimes. Bleh.

I doubt I'll get any icons done tonight as I've got revision to do for a GCSE History exam tomorrow morning. I'll try and get about 5 - 10 done later, but I'm not sure. Sorry about that. I'll make the numbers up in the near future. ;)
