Mark emailed me about adding an Overclockers.com icon file so that instead of seeing a generic icon, one specific to the site appears in bookmarks.

I ginned one up quickly, but there is so much creative talent in our audience that I thought a contest was in order.

Submit an entry and the best icon (IMHO) will appear in user’s bookmarks and will receive a prize – it must be 16 x 16 pixels – that’s the only requirement. Email your entries to Joe.

Reader’s responded with an array of icons – the task is difficult, in that the icon must be clearly visible and distinctive in a 16 x 16 pixel space. Among the many entries, these three stood out:


OK – Help me out here – I like each one, but I am going to defer to our readers on this one; drop me an email and tell me which one you like the best. The icon that gets the most votes will win – please email by Wednesday. Thanks!

The readers have spoken! And the winner is


This entry was submitted by Denis Ty and received 50% of the vote, with two getting 27% of the vote and three 23% out of almost 200 votes.

Many thanks to all who took the time to develop an icon for this contest – many great ideas!
