Due to reasons outside of my control I've been rather a horrible mod, long absent, and regrettably silent. However, yesterday was the Gondorian New Year (which doesn't mean much unless you're a Tolkien nerd but bear with me) and I decided it was time for me to start doing a decent job with this community again. So, I come to you much repentant but eager to make it up to you.
Communities thrive on promotion and this one is no different. We have a number of dedicated posters ( eara_icons notably) but unfortunately not so very many people eager to take icons. And as far as I'm concerned icon making is always more fun when there are people out there using my icons. We desperately need more takers.
With that in mind I'm going to ask those of you who are willing to do some promotion. This is by no means a requirement but anything, even something so simple as name dropping or saying "Cross posted to ...." in another community helps. Give us a shout out on your friends list, add a button linking to us in your user info, really anything you'd like, or nothing at all, use your judgement. And if anyone does decide to promote drop a comment saying "Hey, I promoted at this place…" because I'm morbidly curious and like to know these things. So yeah, if you're up for it, please please please promote.
I've made several different banners for promotion in other communities, and so forth. You can find them along with the proper HTML codes for linking under the cut. I've also made smaller versions of the banners meant to be used as buttons in your user info and such. However any graphic may be used for promotion. If you feel inspired you can even make and post additional promotional banners, buttons, and community graphics. I've used sort of a forest motif (see user info) for these, but any image you care to use is wonderful. And if anyone makes additional graphics I’ll put them on my server and work out the coding so others can use them.
PS: If anyone has any ideas for the community I'd love to hear them, even if it's just that we need a spiffier icon or a better layout.
PPS: Thank you for all your contributions up to this point, and merry future icon making.
