Updates made to the mod tools:

1) The flashicons list now lets you click the title of the submission to access the submission directly.

2) If you click the edit link from the flashicons page and submit an icon, it will return you to the flashicons page after submitting the icon.

3) If a submission has an icon, it will say "edit icon" in red text and if it doesn't have an icon, it will say "add icon" in red text on the view page. This can be a quick reference for whether or not one should be made.

Hope this helps!

NG staff is credit to site. These changes are very convenient for me, especially having the flash links on the icons page. The add icon and edit icon links will also be very helpful.

Good evening everyone. Looks like you've got another helper along the way here, moi! I'll do my very best in this opportunity I've got here to help do the very best I can.

I've already scouted through the Movies section of the site. None seem to be needing anything there. Just checking up on such artists as the Locks now, and then I'll move onto Clocks and them some.

I'll also keep checking the other thread every now and again for other flashes to come up too.

Read the first post in this thread if you want to join the icon mod crew (as I just did). Basically, just make a bunch of icons and then send a PM to Tom with links to them.

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.

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...

I know it's not a contest, but can we have a leader board or something? That would be fun! lol :P

I'd be losing, but still!

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.

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.

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.

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.
