The two golden rules;; 1. ALWAYS GIVE ME CREDIT IF YOU USE MY ICONS 2. Don't claim as your own.
A short time ago, in a galaxy not too far away, I decided to fiddle around with a program called "Arcsoft Photo Studio 2000", and lo and behold, I made my first icon. Fast forward a couple months later, I got a new computer. Upset that the computer didn't come with photostudio, I decided to see what this "GIMP" everyone was talking about. It look like a fairly good program, so I downloaded it. Then, I made an icon. An icon, by the way, that was seriously better than the ones I made with Photo Studio.
Can I edit your icons? No, you cannot.
Can I link back to your journal? Of course! I love shame-less promotion!
I saw someone use you icon and say it was their's! If you did, FREAKING CONTACT ME! Also, give me the link where you saw this person, so I can lay waste into them.
