Take a minute to relax from all the wild memes with our next activity, Icon Retrospective.
How to Play
- → Post a comment with two links: one to your first ever icon post from 2011 and one from your very last.
→ Feel free to post up to 3 icons from each of the posts (that means 6 overall)
→ Discuss what differences you see in the two posts. How did your style change in 2011? How did the way you approach iconning change, if at all?
→ Check out other people's links and discuss how they've changed. What do you see?
Can I Link to Other Posts?
- → Yes and no.
→If you begin discussing things with other people and there is a particular post from the year that you want to bring up, go for it then. But in the original comment that starts the thread, only the first and last posts should be linked.
→ As you respond to other people, feel free to link to any of their posts that catch your eye.
I Have More General Thoughts...
- → Excellent! If you have non-maker specific thoughts about how the icon world has changed in 2011, feel free to either post them in the GENERAL THOUGHTS thread or make a new one!
→ This can include discussing anything from new trends (like 'em or hate 'em?), the new popular fandoms that burst on the scene, new activities, the general mood of the icon world.
→ Feel free to say what you really think even if you have negative thoughts, but no personal attacks please. For example: "I don't like this bestof-icons comm, the activities bore me." is acceptable, but "I don't like this deternot person, she's boring and her icons smell!" is not allowed.
Are You Done?
- All done! Go play!
