This week I've been making a lot of updates to the video game parody sub-collections (Sonic, Mario, etc.), adding submissions that have been recommended by users since the last big update.
The big missing item now is THUMBNAILS. A lot of these parodies and sprite movies are missing 140x90 thumbnails for the redesign.
I'm looking for BIG VIDEO GAME FANS to take on the icon mod duties for these individual game collections. They all branch off from the Video Game Parodies section and include pages like Mario, Mega Man, Metal Gear, Sonic, etc...
If you want to volunteer, find your favorite game collection on the list, make a 140x90 thumbnail for one of the submissions and post it in a reply post in this thread. Include a link to the submission you made the thumbnail for.
If your thumbnail is good quality and you look like a trustworthy user, you will get set up as an icon mod and given the task of completing the thumbnails for that page.
Thumbnails are usually best in GIF format and often work fine with 128 colors... The key is to not lose image quality while maintaining a size in the 3-6k range. Images with a lot of detail may need to be saved as JPG; just avoid visible compression artifacts. Most sprite movies should be lossless GIF though.
Once you're an icon mod, you will see a link on the view page that says "Edit" or "Add" thumbnail - if it says "Edit", a 140x90 thumbnail already exists and you don't need to make one. You will have to manually check each submission in the collection. If you pick Mario, prepare to make a lot of thumbnails. :)
