Thank you for the feedback and confidence. I have not had to create any additional rules as a result of your participation but you have shown me the need for improvement in the listing of acceptable cursor roles and we now have alternatives posted as a result. I do try to keep an open mind to all.
@ The male boss
You are referring to the addition of the display sizes 64x64 and 128x128. Different icon sizes are needed because different operating systems utilize different icon display sizes. Not everyone has the same need because not everyone is running the same version of Windows. A good icon should be able to display correctly in all sizes as needed. Adding a couple of extra available display sizes does not affect the overall size of the icon by much.
Adding additional sizes to an icon is a trivial thing that is easily accomplished. Cursor sets require 15 items to be created whereas icon sets require the creation of only 5. That is much less work to begin with in my estimation and you are quibbling over two display sizes.
Thanks for reminding me to check the icon sizes submitted to the contest. Surely this is not the only objection you have to the rules in their present state when you complain that there are so many rules .
Yes, 24 could be omitted (perhaps in 2017's revision to the rules) and 512 is not required. I'm not sure about 72 and 96, and they are not required either.
