Ferret you seem well enough skilled in the ways of the photoshop. I've done graphic work before aswell and I know the more technical business side to it. My biggest concern for a server icon is how busy it is. It's a little icon. It's got to stand out and not be too intricate. Whenever I make something, I always keep the idea in mind that the person has ADD (doesn't pay attention very long) and they can't see that well (So a simple icon is better). Really, you have to find a balance between simpleness and awesomeness. Anyway, with that thought, good luck. Hope I'm not too confusing.
I think I have warps to my builds. "/warp Joecarnival" should take you to my island where most of my builds are. There's also "/warp Partyisland" with lots of games. Those are my builds. I don't know everything on the server nor do I say my builds are the best. I'm giggling to myself because I know this exact dilemma. You want to make something, but nailing down the idea, the image, is the hardest part.
Yes I know silly Joe. I'm just brainstorming more or less. And money is always great, but right now I am not worried about that with this server. I would not mind at all doing free. I am not asking for money. Just wanting to help out the server lol. I'll find money other places. hehe...
Well, there will be a reward. In any case, there are great builds all over. Obviously spawn, Paris, Venice, and the list goes on. I think we might include simple and complex, just so people aren't intimidated.
