And to clarify how I'd like us to use this voting page, and why it exists:

Two designers have each put in a lot of personal, volunteered time working on icon sets.  Bogdan has been communicating on the forums and with Robbie, I understand; George has been very present on this mailing list.  Both have iterated through icons in response to criticism.

It sucks that these parallel projects weren't better unified somehow sooner, because it's clear that (1) we want to refresh the icons in Adium in many instances and (2) for any given icon, only one icon is needed.  The icons do need to have a consistent look & feel, but that doesn't mean they have to all come from the same artist.

Frank's voting page should help clarify how the folks on this list - a group of developers as well as users who care enough to be following development, 215 people in all - feel about the options.  Please note that these votes are not binding, however; as a group, the Adium developers have the final say, and within that, Zac and I take responsibility for making final decisions if we're otherwise at a deadlock.


P.S. It probably goes without saying, but please only vote once.
