  • If you've got photoshop skills, TG needs your help! [forum icons]

    When you click the "What's New?" link above, you're brought to a list of posts. Each post/row has a generic envelope image to the left. We'd like to replace those with icons that reflect what forum that post is in.

    If you've got graphics skills, we could use your help. What we need is an icon for each of the active forums listed below. The icon should be 45px square, in .PNG format. If you're willing and able to help, let us know here! Your reward will be great personal satisfaction, with the potential for massive amounts of +rep :D

    Here's the list forums in need of icons:

    Re: If you've got photoshop skills, TG needs your help! [forum icons]

    Ferris is on the case! I'll start cranking through the list this afternoon. However, this is a massive list, and I'd love to see other people throw out some ideas/designs so we can really get the best of the best going here. Also, Im not sure if its going to be much of an issue, but I did notice that all of the IHSes have been left off the list for forum icons. I can crank these out very easily as well, but in order to do so, I'd need the IHS leaders to step up and post graphics that can be resized for their forum icons.

    Lets get to it ladies and gents!

      i can have a look too

      question tho

      is there any particular style or theme that you would like to be followed, or do we have free reign?

        Generally, consider it blank slate :) The only requirement is that it's easy to create new icons when new forums are added... so some super-stylized, glossy, aero theme probably is overkill.

        edit: Post which forums you're working on, so we dont' duplicate effort here :)

                i like it browna. i'm a big fan of very simplistic icons for the forums. makes things easy to recognize, easy to change, easy to add to later on. i'm working my way down the list pretty steadily, but theres a couple that i'm going to have to think on for icons:
                game reviews
                TG game club
                game forum archives

                all the rest should be done here in the next few hours. my icons post will continue to grow as I finish and upload.

                  Nice guys!

                  Keep in mind that we can tweak the border colors for different things... so borderless would be preferable.
