# Noice.
I have an idea: why not let everyone who donates have one icon that they have designed themselves (and isn't in the general list for everyone)?

Obviously, it would have to abide by the rules, and the mods would have the power to remove bad ones.

Chances of this being taken up? Low to non-existent.

# I personally would not like that
I like keeping it very selective, it keeps the board looking neat and cleaner.

# Fair point
..I forget these things because I have images turned off, and only load what I want to see.
So mostly, we've all got little grey boxes next to our names.

Except the tightwads who haven't donated.

# how can you tell if it's what you want to see?
I suppose you could gaz someone and ask them to describe some pics for you!

# Usually I'll look at anything, once.
I just ran into some shit at work (months and months ago) for refreshing the board constantly through the day (as well as mp3s, videos etc) which sucked up more bandwidth in a month than anybody else in the organisation uses in a year.

# in which case,
the rest of your organisation are unhealthily disconnected from the magic that is b3ta. I feel sorry for them.

And now I'm off to bed :)

# He is vere well (considering).
I could try and icon-ify Posh as well, but that may not be so good, him being ginger and all.

# I like the angry look on the icon version
Not so much(anger) on the vector, more a pensive stare.

# now look what you've done.
i've got three cats here staring at me and asking why gus and posh get icons and i haven't made any for them. i sense an impending snubbing.

i'd go for vanity icons. and telekinesis.

# and laser eyes, of course.
I cheated by making grey-scale vector images, shrinking and cropping them, saving them with a reduced palette (the Furtive icon has 5 greys plus transparent), and then tweaking them til they look right.

..and I still gave myself eye-strain.
