Sherlock userinfo icons  
I previously did a bunch of these for my other fandom (BBC's Robin Hood) and they were very well received so here's some for my shiny new Sherlock fandom too.

Sherlock:
John:
Pacifist John:
Mycroft:
Lestrade:

To use these icons (or indeed any others you fancy) for the userinfo icon on your journal/comm open up the Custom CSS page for customizing your journal and add the following to it (changing the two paths to the icon to your desired one - this code will give you Sherlock!).

Please note: This will change all the userinfo icons on your journal (not just yours) to whatever pic you choose. It won't change your userinfo icon on any other comms or journals.

ETA: The code I used originally used to work fine but now replaces all the icons (users, communities and feeds) because LJ changed the paths to their icons. The code below has been updated to fix this - if you have mini-Sherlocks (or whoever) for all your icons please fix it by using the new code.

If you do use one of them, do please give me a little credit on your profile page - thanks!




Enjoy!

FYI
The code you provided isn't for the Sherlock one. I just tested it and I think it's for one of the Merlin ones. Just thought you should know. :)

Cheers! Enjoy your mini-Mycroft.

You are genius.

Evil genius, as that coding doesn't give you Sherlocks. Or it didn't give me Sherlocks. It gave me little Allans. I am shocked you didn't trick everyone into little Little Johns! ;D
WYGwastingyourgum on October 15th, 2010 05:16 pm (UTC)
I know - I changed it but then had to re-cut and paste the code and forgot to change it again. It's sorted now!

I tried this and it didn't really work, then again CSS is my nemesis. Should I save the icons I want to my own image host and insert the link there?

I'd like to use one for communities and syndicated feeds as well.
WYGwastingyourgum on October 15th, 2010 06:01 pm (UTC)
It should work using the links to my originals but feel free to save them and re-upload elsewhere.

If you want to change communities and syndicated feeds as well just change the paths in the above code for:
background-image: url(http://l-stat.livejournal.com/img/community.gif);
and
background-image: url(http://l-stat.livejournal.com/img/syndicated.gif);

to the picture you want.

WYGwastingyourgum on October 15th, 2010 06:04 pm (UTC)
You're very welcome.

(What? I like good, solid, reliable, cuddly men who don't take any crap and fancy guys with French surnames.)

Hmm, its seems like I see everyone as being Sherlock.
WYGwastingyourgum on October 15th, 2010 06:05 pm (UTC)
Yeah - it'll change everybody's icon's on your journal (but not yours on anybody else's).

These are so fantastic! I'm using Sherlock right away, and possibly Mycroft later, with credit of course.

Also, is your username a Birdcage reference? Either way, I love it. :D
WYGwastingyourgum on October 15th, 2010 09:20 pm (UTC)
Thank you!

Yes it is! I love that film!

But... how do I choose? :(

Thanks for making these! Will credit once I pick.
Sara: Sherlock - Laughingsezso on October 16th, 2010 09:42 am (UTC)
Went with Sherlock and credited in my bio. This is exciting! I've never messed with the CSS before. And just last week I uploaded my first animated mood theme. I'm more excited about these things than I should be. XD
