PSA: iconfessing is a thing  
omg I just noticed something awesome on my feed!
some of you might know that I'm not a huge fan of anon_icon and that I never really go there to preserve my sanity

there's this other comm: iconfessing

it has a bit similar idea but way cooler, it's more like (or exactly like?) iconsecrets was. you send secrets, they get posted, you discuss secrets (anon or not). But no personal attacks against individual makers are allowed so I think I can hang out there and not run into secrets about how me & my icons suck, so that's nice :>
seriously I love the idea of that comm, I always loved iconsecrets even though back then I was too shy to talk a lot there.

so... see you there? :)

How anyone could think your icons suck is beyond me, but anyway :P I quite like iconfessing too, and I too tend to avoid anon_icon except for special occasions, so I'll probably see you around there!

yay! :)
yeah, I mean nobody can be universally liked so it's natural that a lot of people dislike my stuff and I guess it's ok for them to express it too, it's just that I don't personally want to see those comments, not even if there are positive comments mixed with them, cause my brain being what it is gets stuck on the negative and filters out the positive and it just gets to me.

But yeah, that is what it is and I'm glad there are other discussion places too, including icontalking - huge respect for running it, the icon news/current challenges section looks like a pain to keep up to date :O

It's not too bad actually, depends on how on top of things I've been during the week, but thanks anyway :)

And the targeted negativity of a_i is the main reason I'm happy to keep icontalking up to be honest. Even if hardly any discussion goes on there any more, the point is there's an alternative if people want it.

yeah, it's definitely good that there's an alternative! and it definitely has definitely become a great place to have battles at least. it's often difficult to come up with something to talk about in the posts but when I have something iconrelated I want to discuss that's where I'd go for sure :)

I feel like I should have guessed that, if only from the fact that you were so methodical (and clever, obviously). ;P

Oh that's cool! I'm going to check it out. Thanks! :)

i totally feel you about a_i. back in the day there was so much wank argh i actually discovered the comm from someone using my tag username thingie to say how much they disliked my icons and i have to admit, reading it made me feel all kinds of crap LOL D: but i also learned about 20insp. from it and the big iconing world, and made my skin thicker, so i can't really hate it :v

point is, i found about the entire ~lj iconing world from it and by the time i started participating, iconsecrets was just about to close, and it sounded very fun, so now i'm super happy i can *join in* on the previous fun :D

oh god yes I remember, back when it was brand new I used to visit it too and there was so much wank and drama! idk if it's still like that but good god what were all those 'name makers and everyone posts their opinion on them' threads? I always feared that I would get mentioned. o.O but wow the way you discovered the comm sucks. Really sorry that that happened D: but I'm glad there has been a lot of good things there for you as well! :>

yay, now I just hope more people discover the comm and we can get some active discussions going on there :)

I really like the community as well and was glad to see it back up.
a random javascript function: jack lime blockingjsfunction on December 6th, 2015 11:49 pm (UTC)
yeah, me too :) now I just need to think of some secrets to submit. I hope it will keep going, there hasn't been super active commenting yet but hopefully it will pick up again or that people at least keep submitting secrets!
I'm working on it.nightbulbs on December 6th, 2015 11:07 pm (UTC)
I checked it out and the secrets from the latest post look super pretty, haha. I'll try to keep up with it if some of you guys hang around there. :)

omg hi ♥ always unexpected and awesome to see you! :)
and yes the secrets are really pretty, and interesting too! I just hope that more people come there and hopefully will have some more discussion.

hi yourself ♥
I feel kinda sad that my being around here has become a rare thing but yeah...rl.

I'll try to participate. :) Maybe it'll make me want to icon again because right now even watching the shows I'm excited about (Doctor Who and Jessica Jones, mainly) doesn't spark the muse.

oh but it's not sad at all really, I'm glad you have things going on irl! I meant to stop iconing too, and for a while I did, but then nothing better magically appeared to fill the gap so now I'm just like screw it I'll do this for now :p
