Want a Custom GWJ Forum Icon? Enter The Draw!


Another one of the cool benefits of not locking prizes behind big individual donations is giving everyone a shot at a fancy custom forum icon done by the amazing Elysia. We have the usual tiers based on years donated of course, but you may notice some community members have unique, one of a kind icons. Want one of those? Of course you do!

All you need to do is post in this comment section what kind of icon you'd want and we'll do a random draw of six winners! Only thing to keep in mind is that these icons are really small and gold in color, so if you want something too detailed it may end up being unrecognizable. Like a companion cube looking a bit like an owl. *cough*

Good luck! We'll do the draw in a couple weeks so everyone has a chance to enter.



Golden cork hat? or Golden Meeple.

A light saber is doable right? Right?
I'm in, may the RNG gods have mercy upon me!

Dang. I was thinking of this as well.

Maybe an X-wing or Falcon?

Either a coffin or a Golden Stan. Just the head and hat of Stan that is.

Cheshire Cat Face/Grin


Hmm maybe a PacMan?

Not something to go with your tag? Like, say, a Geiger counter (or a radioactive banana) or one of the aliens from Alien?

Clown face for me! (looking kinda evil if that works)

I would probably have to be a spin on this, a crit rocket from TF2.


Maybe a golden chocobo?

This is awesome, if I didn't already have a custom icon, I would ask for another golden taco.

Golden I'd Hit It thumbs up.

Aw, man! I'm so in!

You guys rock for doing this! Anyway, ummm...I want....I want a...a...I know!

A Chryssalid! Like the one on the far right here.


But if that's too complex for the size, maybe good whisky and bad rum clinking glasses?

A Samus helmet would be awesome.

Or the high jump boots.

A sloth would be redundant wouldn't it? Come on RNGesus!

Probably too detailed for the size. A PKE meter might be better. The alien wouldn't work.

Oh man, I can't decide!

Must falling guy?

Riven Dagger?

A nice Timberwolf?

Definitely gotta go with a Myst-themed something. Maybe really obscure like the D'ni symbol for 5

Me thinks I like the dagger best.

It would be just lovely to have two and a half (or three and a half, depending what fits the dimensions best) hearts, like so:


Gold instead of red, of course.

Golden Playstation Controller!

Ohhh, maybe the Skull from Venture Brothers? Or maybe a silhouette of Monarch?



Something else might occur to me later, but off of the top of my head the only idea I can think of is a strip of chainmail.

The green part:


One waffle please.

Tree of Life


But sideways cause that would actually fit.

Hipster glasses, obviously.

(I still don't know what the 12-year custom icon is. Maybe this one? IMAGE(http://www.gamerswithjobs.com/sites/all/themes/gwj/images/ranks/golden-infinity.gif))

Oh, and for the drawing -- It would have to be a ball of yarn and knitting needles. Or possibly an Atari-style controller wrapped in yarn.

Speaking of, how do I have a plane? That's got to be a mistake - I've been a member for 4 years, and donated every time, but there's some wibbly wobbly icon spoilerism happening here.

A hissing creeper head. Or a crossed pickaxe and sword.

Or a cat.
