posticon Icon Creation Contest

My graphics skills are limited, and the icons you see in profiles right now for live feed messages and comment commands are temporary.

If you have exceptional skills in this area, I invite you to participate in our contest to create new icons to replace my temporary ones.

Grand prize: A lifetime of free premium for your Runboard user account,
as well as for one other Runboard user account of your choice.

We will also announce the winner here, unless you wish to remain anonymous.

The winning icon set will become the sole property of Runboard.

All icons must...

1) be your own, 100% original work,

2) be 16×16 pixels in size,

3) accurately reflect the purpose of the icon, and

4) be in png format, so they will look good with any color behind them.

Basically, we want a nice-looking set that looks good in profiles and in other places, not a bunch of non-matching icons that look out of place.

To give you an idea of what we're looking for, here are the temporary icons we have now...

Comment commands:

Image Disable comments
Image Enable comments
Image Hide comments
Image Show comments

Live feed messages:

Image New user just joined
Image Someone made a blog entry
Image Someone created a new board
Image Someone made a comment
Image Someone made a friend
Image Someone changed their current status
Image Someone made a wall post

Other icons we'll be needing:

Delete, Edit, and Share icons to replace the text links for blog posts.

Possibly a few others, to be announced soon.

You do not have to use the same symbols that I did, but they do need to accurately reflect the purpose of each one. For instance, I thought of a sun and moon to show and hide comments, but I didn't like what I came up with. For that matter, I don't like the eyes I made all that much, either. emoticon

You may submit as many graphics as you want, whether they are complete sets of graphics, or a set with variations on some of the icons.

To enter:

Please send a zipped folder containing your icon set(s) to

If you prefer, you may upload the icons to the web and PM the link to me.


We had set a deadline, but still haven't come up with a winner as of Feb 3, 2011.


If you have any questions, please send me a PM.

Good luck to all participants! emoticon

Edited to include the megaphone icon for wall posts.
