I want everyone to get their crap together and get unique user icons.
No more anime.
NO MORE ANIME ICONS

heh.. I'm going to start a campaign.
Oh.. and someone on automatic writer is now using the same Bob Dobbs icon as Whiplash.
Weird.

Bob Dobbs = instant geek credibility
There's no pleasing you, is there? I mean, mjfgates has that lovely unique, non-anime icon, and you bitch about that, too.

I'd be the first to admit that my icon sucks. As i have no artistic or creative talent, i just used a literal illustration of my username. It does, however, serve its main purpose of visually distinguishing my erudite comments from the inferior ones of the masses.

Re: Bob Dobbs = instant geek credibility
No.. I haven't even discussed with Gates what it is about his icons that I need to have a talk with him about. I wasn't saying that they need to go at all.
Not at all.

When I see 30 different journals with the exact same icon from the exact same (apparently horribly popular) anime... it's time to diversify.

But yes, there is no pleasing me.
You're right about that one.

Re: Bob Dobbs = instant geek credibility
So, when are we going to have that little talk, anyways?

you can't ban all the anime icons: some of them are rather pwetty.

It's not the source that bothers me. You're right, some of them are very interesting and pretty.
It's the repitition that gets me.
You see 15 people on LJ who've already got this or that icon... so you make one too? I think the problem is that I don't understand it, really.

Sad. Now I worry about MY icon.

why would you worry about your icon?
Is it the same anime character or title or piece of animation that you've seen in 5 or 6 other people's icons?

Re: i second that motion
It's not wether anyone else deems them interesting.
Just so long as they aren't just this... stamped out prototype icon sort of thing.

We might as well all just make icons of the microsoft symbol....

::shrug::: just my opinion...
Maybe it's a meme and it's a good thing.
I just don't think so

question:
If I draw my own anime icon, like an anime version of me, is that acceptable?

Re: question:
totally acceptable.
It isn't the anime that gets me.
It's the 300 exact same icons that gets me.

another question:
What if I draw a totally rad icon, and all of LJ decides to use it too? Is it no longer cool, even if I was the creator?
