The Start of Something New

March 2013
on February 23rd 2013

This is an experiment and all users are welcome to participate. The idea is that each month, starting with March, there will be a theme. Any user that wishes to participate will need to create a quality set of icons or cursors that relate to the theme. All participants, who sets meet the requirements, will receive a Mysterious Present courtesy of Sirea. The theme for March will be Agriculture(Farming).


  • Cursor set must be complete sets with 15/15 cursor roles fulfilled
  • Cursors must be in the size 32x32 pixels, may also include 48x48 pixels, but that is not required
  • Icon sets must contain at least 5 icons of different design (No re-coloring)
  • All Icons will need to be available in at least all of the following sizes- 16x16, 24x24, 32x32, and 48x48 pixels
  • Only one set per users. If you create more than one, you will need to pick which one you like better, to be use for the experiment
  • Only set posted within the month of March will be excepted

Additional Info + Tips

  • The top 3 cursor sets and the top 3 icon sets will be featured in the announcement of the theme next month
  • After uploading your set sent me a PM with a link to your set
  • Due to differences in time zones, I don't recommend that you post your set on the first or last day of the month

Good Luck to all of you

Is this going to be only static cursors? or can i make animated cursors?

on March 2nd 2013

You can do both.

on March 3rd 2013

I imagine we would all like to encourage use of animation whenever possible as it does enhance the set and keeps us from getting bored.

hurry up.. lol

I have a question.
I understand why no re-coloring is requested but would that apply to something like bell peppers?
There are green, red, and yellow bell peppers.
Would this also apply to the old or nearly rotten perishables (fruits and vegetables)?

No, it does not apply in that situation. That rule is there to prevent some one from just making one icon and recoloring it multiple times and using only one icon for the whole set.

on March 20th 2013

I thought it was a question worthy of asking for general information and my own curiosity.
I have a few more than the required 5 without the added colors and rotten fruit!

Thanks for the reply!

on March 21st 2013

That took me longer than I thought it would Here it is feel free to rate.


on March 21st 2013

Dang what a nice set!
Well worth the wait!

Beautiful work!

on March 21st 2013

For anyone concerned, mystery presents will be given out at the end of the month.

on March 30th 2013

symmetrical would be a good least in my mind ;-)

on April 2nd 2013

Something that is symmetrical has corresponding similar parts, in other words, one side is the same as the other.

Something characterized by or exhibiting symmetry; well-proportioned, as a body or whole; regular in form or arrangement of corresponding parts.

A square, circle, rectangle are symmetrical.
A donut, star, or egg can be symmetrical.

What an odd theme this would be!

Hey, where is this month's theme?
