I was wondering, wouldnt it be wise to ask the guys of the iconfactory to design a new set of icons for mIRC, khaled gives them credit and they design free icons for mIRC, mirc gets downloaded like xx thousand times a day right.. so it might be interresting for them
The IconFactory usually gets $640 per icon. They will not do them for free. In fact, you can't even get them if you pay for them. I've tried numerous times this year for some projects I'm involved with and they are too busy to take on new contracts. Given that they won't do them even if you pay them, I doubt they will do some for free. Given that they are busier than they can handle, I doubt they need the advertisement.
personally, you can get better icons for cheaper or free, example of one i would like to see im mirc: oh and btw, i think mirc should come with several different toolbar icons that can be easly switched, but yet users can add their own

eeek... you call those better than what the IconFactory creates? Those aren't even XP icons. They may look "XPish", but there's no alpha channel in that bitmap. Because of that, whether or not they'll even look half decent depends on if your background color is the same as the background color that was in use on the system when these icons were ripped.
ok, get icon factory to make some then, but u wount because they are expensive take what you can get and leave it at that.
You were the one who said you could get better icons for cheaper or free! You didn't just say "you can get them cheaper or free"; you explicitly said they would be better, better than the IconFactory's (who created all of the icons for MS for Windows XP). Now you say "take what you can get"? You're contradicting yourself.
And, btw... 1) Most of those are rips out of Microsoft apps. Therefore they aren't better than the IconFactory's icons, they _are_ the IconFactory's icons (except in that bad rip the alpha channels aren't there so they won't look as good) 2) Microsoft owns them and you cannot distribute them
