Perlmonks Icons Pack 2 Out Now!

Hey everyone-

Guess what? The next bundle (Set 2) of my Perlmonk icons bundle is finished!

I have put them up on a site now, and also included a tar.gz bundle if you would like to download the set, but it's up to you if you would rather want to just pick certain ones, and simply copy them off of the site they are displayed on.

Here is where they are at currently:

If you have any questions/comments/concerns/ideas, please let me know so I can start work on a 3rd bundle, if there is any interest in this newer, more refined (than the first bundle) set of Perlmonks icons.

Hopefully these will find a way to be used eventually ... with the last set, they were used well, and ended up finding their way onto a neato program or to based in Perl!

    • A picture of vroom, with his shotgun
    • The maxim "use strict or die;"
    • in the lower righthand corner
    This is similar in concept to the sticker sent out with the t-shirts.

    Also, I'm curious to see how this node looks for ie 6 users. I wrapped it all in a table to force left align. I wanted to do a div or span, but they didn't seem to work.

    Looks Good. ++. But just FYI, I think the standard button size is 88x31, otherwise the images get squashed when I try to use them as my AIM icon :(

      damian1301: you are right about that, they are in fact standard 88x31, I completely forgot about that size when I started a while ago ... I will change it with the next pack if I decide to embark on creating some more in the future. Thanks for the info! (I checked the size again by going to a design site that I typically check out, and yep, their button sizes were 88x31 in fact.)

      Note: In AIM, I think the icon sizes are more like 40x40 or something, not 88x31. If you put in a bigger button/icon, it will get resized anyway, or shrunk.

    I applaud your enthusiasm and effort, but where are the camels, monks, and other "icons" in your icons? A stock background + text just doesn't convey "Perlmonks" to me.
      Good point, but we live in a different web generation today than we did even a few years ago. Young people seem to want these style of buttons now days, even though the other type (more of pictures, like camels, monks, etc.) is still good, the demand for more abstract, and calm (on your eyes,) buttons are in higher demand.

      I can still spend some time adding these other type to this bundle when I get the chance, but I only want to do it if there is anyone else besides you that would like to see these more classic type of buttons also.

        Where do you see these "abstract and calm" buttons?

    Nice work bladx. If you don't mind, I took the liberty of using one of my favorite ones on my Win32 Newest Nodes App (it's written in VB *boo hiss* but it's handy for me at least). If anyone's interested, come to CubicSpline to download the thing and try it out.

    Thanks again for the work!!

    My PM graphic can be had at Try not to get too ill when you look at it. Try not to let my stunning use of HTML overwhelm you as you seek the graphic.

    If anyone cares, msg me for the GIMP source file.

    Update: Do anything you want to with the graphic. I consider it to be in the public domain.
