What's really sad is, if the Dino/sharks go away, there's going to be a lot of people posing in shoutboxes "Hey, anyone know what ever happened to the T-rex & Shark Icons?"

...Because the vast majority of people who PLAY on this website, are ignorant about (or simply ignore) the forums. :cry:

What about an icon rotation for a different months/seasons?

So that way we can keep both dinos and griffins and everyone is happy :).

Yes, that is the unfortunate extent of my creativity.

Agreed. We will only use the Dino/sharks in months with a vowel.

I would ALSO like to point out that IF "Wings" (AKA: aircraft) are ever agreed upon and introduced as part of the "Modern Diplomacy" variant... there will be confusion among new players, as Griffons have wings, and can fly! :o

Problem with the griffin/ sea monster and a couple of the other icon sets presented is that they have lot's of tiny details (relatively).
I feel that goes against some of the purpose of an icon. Icons should always be clear / concise. Detailed icons might not display well on all maps and screens, especially since more people are moving to smaller screens with time.
