I was wondering what program you used to make your icons and if there was any good online resources that you knew of to help me improve my own icon making skills =)

It shows! ;)
The icons are simply linked to your own home folder. That's all you should change.
As you're at it, could you add the link to a "Terminal.png" file?
Thanks!

 Feel like drawing? ;)

Hi!
There are some apps I use that aren't actually covered by the theme. Maybe you could fill at least the most common ones:

* xchat
* listen
* cairo-dock
* xfce4-notifyd
* icon_aumix (it's a terminal mixer, but the Xubuntu team made a desktop file, perhaps you could use the "multimedia-volume-control" icon)
* perhaps some form of "start-here" icon with the Xfce logo
* gufw_menu (perhaps the "firewall" icon could be used here?)
* clamtk
* dia_gnome_icon
* cheese
* soundconverter
* gnome-planner

I tried to somehow order the list from most to least commonly used. I think xchat, listen and cairo-dock are quite common, even on GNOME desktops. The last ones of the list are just in case you REALLY feel like drawing ;)
I hope you don't mind I make so many suggestions (I feel I'm asking too much).
As usual, thanks for all your hard work!
Regards

Thanks, no really always feel free to ask for more icons, i like to know which apps ive missed so that i can cover them. Ive actually been meaning to get around to cairo-dock for some time now so maybe this'll give me some motivation to get it done, look out for them in the next update =)

OK, if you REALLY don't mind...
I'm starting using wxMaxima, a nice math app. If you feel like feeling it, the icon's name is maximaicon.
On the other hand, the Education menu category is missing, but I couldn't find any icon theme that fills it, so I'm not sure what's it's name.
Regards.

Nice job! I really like the new icons, specially the one for Listen. :)
About the Education category, turns out it's file wasn't pointing at any icon. I guess Xfce user's (or at least Xubuntu, I don't know if other distros have this same issue) will have to edit the xfce-education.desktop file manually to use an icon there.
Thanks again!

Thanks! While you're at it, could you make one for claws-mail, if it's not much trouble?
BTW, I can't reply to the proper post either. I guess the thread got too long already. Perhaps next time I should open a new one ;)

No problem, you need to open the downloaded folder until you see one named just polar-icons-2 (doesn't have byjameshardy88 on it or anything) move it onto your desktop and then right click on it. From there select create archive and let it use the default name. Then open up appearance preferences and simply drag and drop your new archive onto it.

Hope this helps let me know if your having any further difficulties, ill be happy to help =)

Wow, it's a very nice work, man! ;-) Maybe the installation is a lil' bit harder than if you compress just in a tar.gz, cuz' first I needed to uncompress it, than make another compressing, but it is great and beautiful!

Ya i apologise for that, its due to it being a relatively large file (larger than gnome-look allows) so i have to use an separate upload site that seems to like adding an additional archive to whatever is uploaded =(
