Ok guys! I cannot believe we are here already. Thanks for all the great challenges in the old thread and let's have many more here! First the link to the old thread is here. Next - and this is the big one.....should be change the size of the icons we enter in the challenges to meet the new board guidelines? Well I can see that a lot of people like the new size. It gives you a little bit more room to be creative. However - this is the only board I have personally seen that allows avatars larger then 100x100 and I know LJ only allows 100x100 as well. You are limiting the use of these avatars to this board unless you want to resize them - and that does not always come out very good. A big one for me though - is that the resources on LJ and deviant art (i.e brushes, textures ) provided to make icons are set to a 100x100 size. Yes - in some cases you can resize them for the larger icon....but not always and sometimes the resizing of them makes them look bad. So - in changing the size to 140x140 - we may be limiting the resources for the icon makers. The LV challenge had the icons made to 120x120 and that seemed to get a positive response....so that is an option as well.
