Icon comm planning vol 3!!!  
Okay I'm reaaalllly sorry I've been lazy and inactive with this stuff again (why do all my posts start like this, lol), but here we go again - the graphics comm!! So this post is for sayuri_x, bizarra and ghanimasun, others please ignore this :D *too lazy to add a friend group*

And because the last two posts kinda showed me how ineffective the whole 'let's discuss until we all agree' thing is, I'm now putting this as a poll and whatever wins the poll, we'll go by. If it's a tie, I'll detract my own votes. If it's still I tie, I'll use a random number generator the decide between the winning options or if there was a clear favorite based on the previous discussions, I'll use it. Reasonable? :) If any of you have a really big problem with something that ends up winning, we can discuss and fix it later, but I just want us to decide *something* now so we have a base to build on. k? ^^

I hope you don't mind too much that I randomly added another layout into the poll, this one. I really like it, it's kind of like sayuri_x's layout but with a dark background which I love.

So please fill this poll ok? :) In the checkbox ones, please choose at least one option but not all of them and please don't pick only the 'other' option.


froonium_, _froonium_ or a variant
froonium_icons or a variant
other, plz specify in comments


Other, plz specify in comments

Maker examples?

a short one in the profile
a short one in the profile + a bigger one in an entry
an own entry for them

Resource credits

everyone makes own entries
a joined entry

I didn't include profile layouts in the poll cause we pretty much agreed to use this one last time. For that, I'll need each of you to pick 3 icons by you that you want there. (The profile code looks like it has 9 slots as it is but it shouldn't be difficult to add another icon column to the right? I hope we're allowed to edit the code!) I think I'll use these:

not because I think they're prefect or anything but because these are the icons I think best describe who I am as an iconer, for better or worse :)

I know this is a bad time for some of you so I hope I'm not too much of a bother. You can just vote if you don't have the time to discuss now, I just need to post this now cause otherwise I'll forget again. :p

i don't mind you being all assertive since we are bascially making you do all the work, I think it only right you get to choose! LOL

Oh, good :D I just don't want to sound like a dictator or anything!

Agreed.. and I actually really like that dark layout. (I can read the text! LOL)

And I'll echo Sayuri :) The profile code loos fine to me. :)

I'm looking forward to having a more "public" place to post my graphics.. so they get out there. :) my journal is a little.. isolated. LOL

Yay! I thought you could like it, the contrast is big indeed :) (I'm already getting a bit tired of my own layout by now, lol! You won't have to tolerate it much longer!)

Old eyes are old. LOL I can't help that. :D

Yeah, this layout is kinda washed out... And not only that, the lack of dates on the entries bugs me, and see that empty white bar above where I never bothered to make a banner? It looks reaaalllly stupid and I'm too lazy to edit the layout to take it out :P
Bizarra: Aeryn colorful smilebizarra on June 8th, 2012 04:24 pm (UTC)
LOL :) It is a bit washed out and I'm not a fan of layouts with no entry dates either. I like to know when the last post was. How active the journal/comm is.

BUT it's your journal. LOL :) My crappy eyes are my problem.

I'm not too terribly picky on some stuff, so if everyone else has a really strong opinion on the layout per se, I'm okay with most of them.

Also if we have some of our icons in the profile code already, it seems weird to have more maker examples on the profile. And I'm not too picky about the resource credit setup either.

I'll try to come up with 3 icons for the profile code sometime this weekend hopefully.

Thanks for putting so much work into this, and Sayuri is right, you are doing the work so you should feel free making final decisions about stuff!

Yay, thanks for participating, now that I have all your opinions here I can actually make the comm!

Oops, didn't think that third question too much. haha, you're right though.

I'm excited!! :D

I am also easy about pretty much everything except for maybe the resource credit thing. But it's because I am lazy. I think we pretty much use all the same resources don't we? Who wants to trawl through 4 different resource pages? Putting them all togethr in one seems a lot more effiecent....

But again, that's the lazy talking and if we are all going to do seperate then that's cool too.
