Wow, Titans, it's really been a while, hasn't it? But happy new year and here's to a whole twelve more months full of suck. In the time we've been gone, let me just say that I've built up a lot of completely rational hatred for all of you guys. ♥

The first batch of "icons" comes from the TGN forums member run_sarrah. I could post more than one of these, but they all pretty much run the gamut of shit, so here's one that I believe is exemplary.

Let's see, what have we here? First off, way to go on leaving the TGN watermark in clear view, since all you did was resize the base screencap. Second, check the dimensions of this -- 128x100. Not only are the dimensions odd and ultimately useless, but in the very slim chance that some poor blind fool wants to use this (or any) if your avatars, they won't be able to; the limits are 100x100 on TGN and most other forums. Even smaller elsewhere. Third, invest in a program with a goddamn text tool. While I admire your "devotion" to these horrible things, writing in text pixel-by-pixel is unnecessary, sloppy, and way too time-consuming.

Speaking of text, just look at the placement on this. I haven't seen placement as bad as this since George W. Bush got re-elected. Which brings me to the watermark in the lower right-hand corner. This is in every one of her icons. Sometimes twice, just in case the point didn't get across the first time. First of all, I can't see myself ever wanting to own up to having created something like this. Second, there are places to credit the maker outside of the icon itself, like in the signature field on TGN, or in the comments for an icon on LJ -- neither of which would be valid places to use this avatar, actually.

I think I've pretty much said everything that can be said about her avatars, so let's move on to someone new. macrobiotic, also from the TitansGo.Net forums, is an interesting case. Most of his avatars are halfway decent, I have to say. But, well.

I think maybe he wants to be a fashion designer and is just making icons in his spare time to... get the money. To go to fashion school. Yes, this makes perfect sense.

This, however, does not make perfect sense. I just. Wow. Clearly doing no evil is not first on his mind, because this is probably one of the most heinous crimes towards the icon community that I've seen all year.

Well, I certainly hope you all laughed at this. Me, I'm gonna try to pretend I don't hate everyone by having a visit with three of my very good friends: Jack Daniels, Cpt. Morgan, and Señor Cuervo.

Hooray, the Snarky Titans have returned! ♥ And you did make me giggle here. I'll be waiting for more, as always :D
