    Once again, you checked the old rules. And I think I already pointed that out. And now, let me quote:

    I hope you got it now so I want to see the icon deleted please. ;)

    Will you delete those ugly MtG icons too? I forget who sunmitted them, but I'll try and find out. They're snp from the card art, and horribly blurry as well.

    Can this be a thread where we link to illegal icons for you? It'd make your job a lot easier.

    Unfortunately for now there is no rule preventing such icons from being posted. BUT, what do you say about this rule?

    Screenshot icons or recolors are not accepted for Blizzard units/buildings. Or else I would see like... 10 demon hunters, 15 taurens and so on. Do you find it a good idea?

    Yep Daelin its a good idea, recolors usually are very crappy, and recolors of blizzard stuff... Meh... Delete them!!! :p

    And screenshots, pff, shouldent be allowed at all, no matter what game they are from :?

    But, say, we make a very nice freehand tauren icon? It will be accepted right? I'm going to dive into the icons section now and find some icons for you Daelin. Wish me luck.

    Drawing a tauren icon from scratch aint the same as recoloring it nor is it the same as making a screenshot, so yes it would get accepted.

    I realise that, just the fact that there's already a perfectly fine one ingame. Anyways...

    Here's the first batch:

    http://www.wc3sear.ch/index.php?p=Icons&ID=10255&sid=d66a8818e9ad3fc4c1a9be26884a655d- Wrong frame and DISBTN

    http://www.wc3sear.ch/index.php?p=Icons&ID=10250&sid=d66a8818e9ad3fc4c1a9be26884a655d- Crap recolour

    I won't bother lsiting any more on the first page though, let's try page 41... Well, there's 7 versions of an icon "HandofPower" that are knid of repetive, I'm not sure if they break any rules though.

    http://www.wc3sear.ch/index.php?p=Icons&ID=10133&sid=d66a8818e9ad3fc4c1a9be26884a655d- Crap Alien icon

    http://www.wc3sear.ch/index.php?p=Icons&ID=10112&sid=d66a8818e9ad3fc4c1a9be26884a655d- can barely distuingish what it is, the description says sawdust...

    http://www.wc3sear.ch/index.php?p=Icons&ID=10175&sid=d66a8818e9ad3fc4c1a9be26884a655d- recolour of fairy fire (ugly too).

    http://www.wc3sear.ch/index.php?p=Icons&ID=10092&sid=d66a8818e9ad3fc4c1a9be26884a655d-
    looks to be an ugly cnp, no DISBTN.

    http://www.wc3sear.ch/index.php?p=Icons&ID=10050&sid=432969a85a48db9834c2328ef87ba455-
    Ugly icon, and DISBTN is incorrect.

    http://www.wc3sear.ch/index.php?p=Icons&ID=10055&sid=432969a85a48db9834c2328ef87ba455-
    Cnp, and Afronight has made a Megaman model and icon.

    http://www.wc3sear.ch/index.php?p=Icons&ID=10056&sid=432969a85a48db9834c2328ef87ba455-
    Same thing with this one.

    http://www.wc3sear.ch/index.php?p=Icons&ID=9918&sid=432969a85a48db9834c2328ef87ba455-
    Tiki has made a perfectly fine freehand icon for this model, this one is unneeded.

    http://www.wc3sear.ch/index.php?p=Icons&ID=9462&sid=432969a85a48db9834c2328ef87ba455-
    No frame.

    It's great that everyone is helping so much with the icons section, but I'm going to have to ask you to PM Daelin all the icons you find, since this is more private and doesn't really belong on the public forums.

    Sorry for the trouble.

    Heh, ok. If Oz02 says so, go ahead and PM me. ;)

    Oh, and about the rules, I meant it for blizzard original skins/models not custom edited. So if you make a custom skin/model, you can make a recolor/screenshot to help people get an icon and use it ingame. However, all blizzard units/buildings icons should be freehand.

    I will soon add the rules but right now I have to go to school so no time for that.

    There's no difference between a Diablo map and any other map. Or does being a Diablo map make it sacred and able to ignore the rules or something?

    Ok, let's end this subject (diablo icons) because it's pointless. If you would've checked the rules, you would have seen that stolen icons are illegal, and that so is CnP.

    I don't care how useful the icons are. If someone uses those icons into his map, it doesn't mean that he can ignore ALL the rules and post them on the site. Got it? Good!
