Would it be possible to put DPRK to a vote first before proceeding further? I think we got enough icons to vote for on that one.

DPRK and every other forum will have individual polls. We are just waiting for the first one to be finished. DPRK is next though, unless anyone has a good reason why not.

Sorry for multiple edits, but seeing the pic that Shig posted suddenly turned on some light bulbs. Just some suggestions. My feelings won't be hurt if no one agrees.

I'll turn them into icons soon. Give me a few minutes, I'm watching bear attack videos lol)

Haha. You'll have to learn someday. It's a useful skill.


Anyone have any more photos to add before I start making these?


EDIT: KW, your ideas are up on the OP.

Well the images in the OP are working now. (I usually allow scripts and advertisements on S-E anyhow.)

You say you don't want faces, so I suggest something else for LWHC, but what we have there now is basically a bunch of faces.

Is there a reason for using PNG files as opposed to JPEGs?

I don't allow either.

I have no choice. I make what people ask for. I have to do Lenin sometime soon. *I* don't want faces but it seems everyone else does.

Because the fastest way to do these is in paint and I actually forgot I wasn't changing them. Ugh. Noted.

I wasn't complaining, I just asked whether it mattered - for future reference - in case I was going to suggest any others.

Any time someone says that I'm pretty sure it's the fastest way that he ends up "knowing" lol

No, it doesn't matter. I'm just lazy.

His flying monkeys are scanning the forums for any mention of the name - at the slightest mention they start screeching and the poop starts flying.

I like this one for Mir or LWHC - that penguin isn't really recognizable - it looks like a sword or something to me.

For Let's Work Harder Comrades I intended to use the Soviet poster of the same name (which is where the forum's name came from).

For the countries - as with the other forums - I would prefer to avoid personalities if possible, though for China I was thinking of the entrance to the forbidden city, despite the obvious personality cult, as it's the most recognisable image of communist China.

I like that idea, actually. As well as not using specific people for anything. Thank you for posting in here, I thought for a while that this was all for naught.

Having seen the images on the front page both with and without the black borders - I just wanted to say that I thought they looked better without the border.

That's my opinion at least.

Well, there's also Tank Man... (Just joking. Don't take that literally. Please don't.)

Just a suggestion: Mao announcing the founding of the PRC from Tiananmen Square.

It's a "personality" but it's also historical, while avoiding the "cult" aspect, imo.
