In the recent exodus from LJ, some iconmakers have completely turned their back on LJ. With this community, I'm hoping to give iconmakers a place to gather and chat, to exchange ideas and show each other our icons, and to promote any iconmaking activities going on around here.
I'm sure there are also those who are crossposting, or still actively engaged in the iconmaking community on LJ. The iconmaking community on LJ was, last I checked, determined to stay together on LJ. I support that decision. A community lives by its numbers, and the more people leave, the harder it is to keep interesting activities going. The goal of this community here is not to split the iconmaker community down the middle. So what is it? Let's find out!
