Why even those old ones? Isn't the issue here just the fanarts/pairing icons?

Er, no, the issue here is that we can also use the IMG code to post those things.

Hmm from what I understand some people here say that we should just use [img] for those shippy fanarts because they are either not comfortable with seeing fanarts of ships they dislike/don't want to face fanartist's wrath, so I think for me it's just the shippy fanarts issue here. Maybe you should retain the old pics and we'll talk about what to do with it since you already know how other people reacted when they got deleted.

Too bad. They already got deleted. Besides they were too big, I remember Nano mentioning that we should make them smaller. And why keep them if we can also use the IMG code to post them. I really don't see the point here. For the monkey emoticons it's understandable since it's something we often use, but for somethiing like a Gray pic we can simply go and search for one on google.

Well I think maybe next time before we change some things in the forum we should inform the users first though and ask for their opinions.

Because I get the idea that you guys strictly want to use IMG code for everything. But if you really want them back we can use smaller ones.

Personally, since I don't use those icons I have no problem. And that I dislike them being too big. But people use it a lot and that was why for me I guess it's better to ask them first. They did get angry the first time it got removed :'D

I have one question though. Why would artists feel embarrassed of people seeing their art on the internet if they themselves posted the art on the internet for people to see in the first place?

I don't mind resizing the icons... If we are going to add them again.
Maybe as big as the monkeys?

Spoiler:

For me I am embarrassed of old art because I can see the mistakes. At first I will be satisfied with it but after some time I will hate it. I can't do anything about it being used by others anymore as time goes on, but if people ask me if they can use it I will say no :'D

Let's just say,, I hate drawing in anime style but I like gruvia. So I hate drawing fanarts but I would like to contribute to the gruvia fandom because it used to lack fanarts. So my drawings may appeal to them and not to me. And really, I don't draw in anime style in real life so my drawings as oino greatly embarrass me and it makes me look down at my art skills.
But this is my opinion towards my drawings, to each their own.

EDIT: Also,, maybe we should crop it too instead of resizing,, like for example the juvia pic,, she'd be too small if we were to use the whole pic

I was thinking of adding other pics anyway Laughing Simple ones without background.
Yeah I could crop them.

But I guess we first have to discuss if we use icons, which ones we can add, etc.

EDIT: Oh god. 1501 posts :'D

Then create a thread and we could discuss this over there. Also we need to vote on which icons people would prefer for a certain character.

I dislike it very very much if I see my drawings being used in other media (like in amvs and the likes) and the drawing you used for gruvia that was made by me,, well.... I don't like that drawing so much(I kinda hate it. It's a fail drawing but I can't delete it cause my watchers will wonder why again). I'm not the type who makes a big deal out of copyright and the likes, it's just that I'd want my pics to be used as less as possible because I am highly embarrassed of them, and seeing them outside my gallery (and I don't even look at them in my gallery anymore) makes me squirm inside. And this is my reasons on why I'm not into putting fanarts as icons. Artists have different views on their drawings, some may be flattered if we use and some may be embarrassed by it like me. And there are some who make such a big deal of others using it without permission. And well, I'll just share, but usually people send me notes still asking permission for them to use my pics. It's important sometimes and adding a disclaimer just won't cut. It's like claiming "these pics aren't mine but I don't know who draw them". Artists don't really like that, that's why there's a pixiv issue where the japanese artists don't want to draw anymore because tumblr people keep using it without sourcing back or even just saying who the artist is.

My point is, using fanart as part of this forum is risky. Anyway, that's only my opinion with this matter and why I'm against using fanarts as icons. I know we shouldn't be too serious on this forums, but there are sometimes people make a big deal out of and we wouldn't want that.

I think we should make a new poll regarding this icons issue. In all honesty I'm just quite irked with any icon that's bigger than 50x50 because they are sometimes being used in the chat and it messes the chat up. But if we wanted to post fanarts of a ship, can't we just use the [img] code? I think it's better that way and we would get to see the full size of the drawing.
This. Just, this.


I don't know why you get upset Yuli.

You wouldn't understand Luna. Anyway it's all been settled now, we will arrange new, non-fanart and non-shippy icons.

I think I can only add one of them. So decide first which one you like the most. And they're gonna be added when I have the time.
