It's okay, I used the running Sonic icon as a placeholder because I had it available from some other project of mine, but it doesn't really fit with the homebrew idea.

I looked on Google Images to see if there were some interesting icons but I couldn't find anything good. No, I don't want a glass of beer to be the forum icon.

Please post suggestions, either found on the internet or custom made (get it, a homebrew icon for the homebrew forum :hurr: ).

Ideally, the icon should be 50 pixels wide (like the other forum icons on this forum), and ~50 pixels tall (or less). 4- or 8-bit PNGs or GIFs are preferred, even though 24-bit PNGs or even JPEGs are acceptable.

Note that, if the chosen icon is custom made, I will probably create a new special star (e.g. "icon designer") just for you, as a reward, so start drawing :artist2:[hr]EDIT on 2012-01-18:
Likewise, the forum icon for the Submissions forum could use a replacement, since it's another placeholder. Same rules apply, 50×(≤50), PNG or GIF.

Well, since this is the homebrew forum I may as well use a homebrew character:

Image

GIF, 50×50, 1991 bytes (probably may want to optimize it, knowing you, I bet GIMP saved all 256 colors even though only 11 are used, transparent included).

Curiously this looks a lot like the idea for the logo for Echo (Oerg put a quickly made Stephany-with-headphones pic in the Blast ROM, I need to make a proper logo some day).

I like it :O
And yes it can be optimised:
Image (1109 bytes)

Let's see if someone else can come up with some other suggestion so we can have a poll. Democracy always wins :2:

No, too small (25×25 - GIF is scaled up 2x, mind you =P)

Um, sorry for double post, but does anybody else have another suggestion or do we stick with this? =P

Right, I hoped to have a mini drawing contest, but apparently that's not going to happen. Let's set a deadline, if by the end of this week there will be no other options, I will pick Sik's icon on saturday. What's fair is fair.

Guess that'd have worked out if we had more active members here... The forum is still too new, and we also need many more rips to make it get any serious attention (taking into account its goal).

I'm not good at art (and I lack to creativity to create new art in general), so I can't contribute anything.
But I like Sik's icon, so I'm fine with using it.

btw: It's off-topic, but I think a new icon for the Submissions forum would be nice, too.

Definitely, that one is a placeholder too, I just didn't want to replace both of them at the same time to avoid confusion.
I guess it won't hurt to start brainstorming for that one as well, though. I'll edit the first post accordingly. Also, this topic is now in the "Problems and Suggestions" subforum.

For the Submissions forum, how about something like this (but better)?

Sorry for the triple post. Just reporting that Sik's icon for the Homebrew forum has been officially approved :clap:

Now do something for the Submissions forum :hide:

The official releases should be easy, just have a picture of the system. :V

Though for submissions, I haven't a clue for something at least half-witty. Probably a sheet of paper but that's not funny.
