On Icons and such... :P  
Just a thought, but with so many awesome icons floating around this community, why doesn't someone make a webpage strictly for FMA icons? xD That way they can all be in one place and such, instead of scattered throughout the various posts. ^^

I'm not good at crazy layouts (like this community's *-*) but if someone had the webspace and needed help coding stupid repetitive stuff like tables and organizing submissions or something I'd be more than willing to help pull it together. ^_^

Is this a bogus idea? xP

The problem with that is thievery, aka not crediting. If you post on LJ, you know whose taking them, and if someone steals it, you know it.

It's impossible to do it all on one site, because alot of icon makers put there icons friend's only, so they know who see's their icons, so you couldn't have anywhere near "all the icons". I, being an icon maker, would not like to see it posted on a website, because of people taking it and claiming it as there own, and that'd be very easy to do.

There are plenty of icon makers who do alot of specific series, if you want some, I'd be more then happy to point some out to you, but I vote ney on putting them all on one website.

Oh, and you'd also have to ask every icon maker, putting them up without their permission is even worse.

That's an understandable worry, and I definitely see your point. Still, in both cases there will be people who decided not the use credit or even tell the person that they took it. You'll find it in both cases of LJ vs. Website.

And, it was just a suggestion. ^^ Maybe some people will still want to do it?

I had no intention of just taking peoples icons, but rather taking submissions by creator and organizing them by that person's name. Best for crediting and for organization. It's not impossible to make one site with a lot of icons, it merely runs on a sort of honor system, like everything on the internet.

Still, it's anyone's decision if they want to do the site thing. ^^ I appreciate the feedback.
