If you know of (or have) an icon you'd like to see on this board, go ahead and post them in this thread. Either provide a link or e-mail them to me so I can post them.

You can also make requests in this thread.

DJ, could you post the ones we had posted before? So the new members can see those i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif .

I think big_pth posted the others, but here's the one dallmav suggested last time (which I still need to check for permission on):

I was quite pleased with the "Demon" icon... It goes with myname quite well...

Hey big_pth, do you have one that has the full logo? With the grey shield behind it.

djb
03-09-2001, 03:35 PM
I'll probably make some new icons once I finish the site. I still need to ask Cuban for permission to use those logos though, but if he says it's ok, I'll make one with the shield.

<bump> for all the new members

If there's an icon you'd like me to add, be sure to post it in this thread so we can all take a look!

(I'm a graphic designer by nature, so don't be mad if I think an icon is ugly and reject it - I can be a picky sob but I'll try my best to accomodate everyone i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif)

The Evilmav located a nice skull icon and I am attempting to post it here for suggestion...

Let me know what you think about this one...

03-14-2001, 09:16 PM
Was everyone able to see the ape icon? I can't see Mavinator's skull icon. I can see my ape however. I created the link to the file on my C: drive. I don't think I ever uploaded anything to the server. If this didn't work, someone please let me know how to do it correctly.

Hey...I like the little red "x" in the box...

djb
03-14-2001, 09:18 PM
You need to upload it somewhere on the Net (like a geocities page or something).

big_pth
03-14-2001, 09:20 PM
It needs to be in a spot where people can see it...Like mine are posted on my site http://www.dallasmavs.net

If you want, you can send it to me, and I will post it.

It looks a little fuzzy..do you have a bigger, sharper copy of it?

Mavinator
03-15-2001, 11:57 AM
The Evilmav sent it to me as a .ico file, and I crudely used a screenshot to convert it into a .gif file to post here... I tried uploading the .ico file, but it doesn't seem to work right. I can email you the original file if you like...

djb
03-15-2001, 11:58 AM
If anyone wants me post up an icon, just send me the file i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif

Mavinator
03-15-2001, 12:00 PM
See, that would have made sense...

Evilmav2
03-15-2001, 03:03 PM
DJ, is there any way you could make Mavinators' skull icon my signature icon? Mavinator is a little more experienced with HTML, so I got him to figure out how to post it (I am not a smart man, and I could not get it to work yesterday). I love the "Devil" icon I have been using, but it is only a matter of time before another poster decides to employ it, and I like to be an individual... Thanks, and I'll get you a sample player profile by tomorrow...

djb
03-15-2001, 03:07 PM
Unfortunately there's no way I can implement user-specific icons (an icon that only one user may use). Sorry i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif

Evilmav2
03-15-2001, 03:08 PM
Oh well... How can I change to the skull? I went to the profile option, and checked the icons, but the new icon was not there... I am probably overlooking something obvious, so please forgive my ignorance...

djb
03-15-2001, 03:21 PM
It's not available as an option yet since the icons posted in this thread are just suggestions that might or might not be added. The pic is a little small and grainy..do you have any that are larger and sharper? Since these are icons that will be available to everyone on the board, only the ones with the best quality will be added. I hate to sound picky but I'm a design freak and everything on this site will have to be the best i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif

LonestarROB
03-15-2001, 03:56 PM
hehe...found this one. I think you have to get permission to use it permanently though.

http://cwm.ragesofsanity.com/s/cwm/monkeysmile.gif

Evilmav2
03-15-2001, 04:00 PM
Yeah, I wasn't too happy with some of the icons that I found in my searches... I will keep looking, and hopefully I can find some better "evil" icons... Since you can't have dedicated icons I can see how you have to maintain the overall quality of the icon options...

Evilmav2
03-15-2001, 04:02 PM
Incidentally, are you the "Mavericks Crusader" on the MFFL ESPN.com challenge? If you are not, what is your moniker? Also, can you support animated icons?

You must be psychic big_pth cuz I was actually thinking of adding Simpsons icons i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif Hmm maybe icons isn't the correct word..most icons available are pretty small and pixelated. Was thinking of maybe finding some good images and editing them down to icon sizes

LonestarROB
03-16-2001, 12:00 PM
I found alot of Simpsons icon's yesterday. If ya want Simpson icon, I'll post 'em (If I can find them again i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif ).

03-16-2001, 12:10 PM
Damn, I can't find them. I'll keep looking.

When you say "cutting them down to size". You mean like a gif image down to the size we have?(I'm sooo computer illiterate i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif ). I think I found 2 that evilmav might like(I like them too) but there BIG.

djb
03-16-2001, 12:14 PM
See that borg icon I just posted? That's the size I'd like the icons to be. Since the icons available on the Net are for the most part designed to be used on your desktop (Windows, Mac OS), they're usually smaller, more pixelated, and just not very sharp looking in general.

If you find some big clear Simpsons pics, I could probably scale them down and edit them so they'd look ok. But the pics have to be clear. Some nice front facial shots of the characters would work well. The only prob would of course be the copyright stuff..but maybe we can add them and no one would notice i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif

The Simpsons' official site (http://www.thesimpsons.com) has pretty clear and well-drawn images all over the place.

LonestarROB
03-16-2001, 12:32 PM
Here's the 2 i found. If they could be made small I think they'd be cool.

Thats a pretty cool ape. Here are a couple of others I am considering. I particularly like the gorilla one. Tell me what you think.

Where did you find those Ape pix Madape? If you see any good devils, skulls, or "evil" icons don't hesitate to get them... That enraged Gorilla should be the new icon of the Madape (if DJ inserts it)...

Evilmav2
03-21-2001, 06:46 PM
Incidentally Ape, your boy Mike Miller is looking pretty damn good against the Pacers right now...

madape
03-21-2001, 06:49 PM
I got those off a wildlife image gallery website.

I doubt you'll find anything there, but I'll keep an eye out for you. I still like the icon you have now though. It certainly fits the EvilMav

Mike Miller is the real deal.

03-21-2001, 06:54 PM
Orlando just wiped out an 18 point Pacers lead (it's still the third quarter) to take the lead... Miller has been dropping threes and dimes on the Pacers' heads... Harrington knocked him down once though (McGrady too)...
