Frequently Asked Questions
Why isn't the buddy icon maker free anymore?
The buddy icon maker is not free anymore because it got too popular. It
is so popular that it now requires special web hosting that is much more
expensive. I didn't want to take the buddy icon maker offline forever, but I
can no longer offer it for free.
What do you do with the money from membership fees?
Money collected from membership fees pays for web hosting bills and for improvements to the site.
What made you think up the buddy icon maker?
A lot of people used to IM me asking if I could make them a buddy icon saying
"I love so-and-so" or "so-and-so kicks ass". Another
thing they always wanted was for the icon to be made with their favorite colors
and backgrounds. The number of requests grew to a number too large for me
to fulfill and I thought, "Why not make a self-serve website where people can easily make
their own buddy icons?"
