Ugly Icons

Posting Access:
All Members , Moderated
Mocking and deriding of ugly, poorly-constructed icons.
Don't clutter up iconrants with your rants about ugly icons, post them here! All posts are friends-locked, without exception, so you must join to see anything.

NEW: All posts are moderated, as a result of some extremely stupid trolls. This is why we can't have nice things.


What you may do:

+ make posts showing ugly icons and pointing out what's wrong with them.
+ make posts linking to publically-posted ugly tutorials and pointing out what's wrong with them.

What you may not do:
NOTE: these are all bannable offenses, so you best recognize.

+ promote/pimp your own or other's icons or communities.
+ find an iconist's posts or journals and mock them there. That's the point of this comm, people-- to keep the bitching corralled behind closed doors, not take the wank to the iconists. If I find out you're doing this, your ass is banned permanently. And I'm tracking IPs, too. So there.
+ edit/delete your posts or comments, or the comments of others, without permission from a mod if the discussion's not going your way. Buck up and own your mistakes.
+ troll.
+ feed trolls.
+ be assholes to each other.
+ post distasteful icons. Distasteful is defined by me as "anything depicting the genitalia of any living creature, regardless of state of arousal; dismemberment, gore, vore-- any gleeful depiction of any living creature being harmed".
+ feed trolls. I mention it twice because apparently some of our members are too stupid to either understand or remember this one. DO NOT FEED THE TROLLS.

What you must do:

+ include a NON-HOTLINKED image of the icon you're mocking. This means you have to upload it to your own server space. Bad enough we're making fun of their icons, we don't have to steal their bandwidth as well.
+ put lengthy rants behind a cut. Click here if you don't know how to lj-cut.
+ rant about the ICON and its flaws, not the MAKER.

If you have any questions about these rules, please feel free to ask them here.
