How many times have you gone to save and icon and noticed the big "MUST CREDIT" disclaimer? How many times have you been annoyed by this big disclaimer? A lot, huh? Well, here's the solution.. an icon commity with a 'no credit rule'.

Now, let's get some stuff straight. We've made a few icons in our life. Find a pic (that obviously isn't ours) size it down, slap some text and a border on and we have a nice icon. Great! Not too much hard labor, a touch of creativity and we're all happy. What I don't understand, is the need to credit a creator for this. There was no commission, no contract.
Before you click the send button on your hate mail, let me say one more thing. I make icons. I make a lot of them and I love to share them, without asking for credit. So yes, I do put time and effort into these, and I know how it 'feels'. Secondly, somethings are worth credit, perhaps. Animations, blinkie things, orginal artwork, those... maybe I could see giving credit. So if you make those sorts of icons, try another community, because I don't think we can fulfill your needs.
In NO WAY does this community promote the sharing of "stolen" icons. Icons posted here should be created by the poster.
