Dynmap Icons and You

Dynmap icons will now be following a more uniform format, and with some rules to prevent too much cluttering.

All icons will now be required to be on a form of shield at 32x32. Bear in mind the shield should ideally appear longer in height than width, do not make square shields to fill the entire box, and ensure it is a transparent .png! Additionally ensure it is appropriate for the server, anything not considered appropriate will be denied.
Below you can see several examples to follow. If an icon needs work, staff will offer suggestions and it should be edited prior to approval. All icons below are 32x32, even if they appear smaller than many others on the map. This is using the box but not to fill it, and is the ideal guideline.

Icon Requirements
In order to have a region apply for an icon, it must meet the following:

  • Have a minimum of 40 plots.
  • Be a mostly finished region with few unfinished builds.
  • Be open for roleplay.
  • Be publically accessible. No secret regions.
Note:
Any regions with no building made do not apply for icons.
Any regions inactive for six months have the icon removed when the regions is destroyed. If it changes owners, the icon is removed until efforts at returning it to being moderately active occur.


Icon Submission
With all that said, if you wish to submit your icon, please use the following format:


[SUBMISSION]
Image: (attachment or link, must be .png)
Image Name: (make it original so it is an easier find, ie Fuvur Sigil)
Original Artist:
Icon Changing/Removal
And if you wish for an icon to be changed or removed (do not request changes and removal and re-adding regularly) it can also be posted on this thread, now.

Sadly this means the following regions will need to submit new icons to replace current ones to fit the new guidelines;
(Many of these are shields but they are too wide/fill the space too much. Please make them tinner/smaller!)

Halbed Cymic_
Ackerland BoredBrit
Emyn Arnen RagingLunacy
Astrakhan Blorbis83
Mockingbay Samiwashere
Kingfisher Fields Samiwashere
Nid Arach Bartooliinii
Cherry Valley StarWillow2000
Aelmere BoredBrit
Aurum Orchard Luam (is fine to be deleted entirely)
Alderwood Cove Jinny

And the following regions no longer fit under the category and the icon will be removed;

I've updated the list - Please don't be offended if your region is being removed, I'm going with the more private/hidden 'estates' and not open public places having no icons too here. Naturally if you really think you should have an icon as it fits the guidelines, let me know.
Several aren't on the list and are in discussion or being given time to see how things develop.

Another note - The non-custom icons are also likely going to be replaced, to keep things uniform. This includes getting a new icon for spawn, as requested.

I've got around to the removal of icons no longer fitting the categories (And will be checking region stuff shortly in case I missed some) but I'll be removing the ones needing changes now as well, it will take a bit for new icons to be added as I get used to the plugin again (Or, Ayda helps in re-uploading, whichever);
This is a reminder to submit your new icons if you want them updated, thanks :)

Additionally, I've removed some not on the lists. Please see if your region applies to the new rules and re-submit an icon if you so desire (Or if you dont agree, talk to me about it).

Apologies on the big delay. I'll try and find the time this week to get the replacement icons put in. :)

I'll see if another staff member feels up to taking this on - It isn't something I can keep up with right now.
