Randomly sampling praisable icons of the past

I'm always nostalgic over icons, so I decided to go back to random points in time and choose icons to praise from those days. This post is a mix of icons from 2010 to the present day.
I chose 100 icons, each by a different maker, but as I said there was a lot of random element in this so if I chose an older icon from you it definitely doesn't mean that's my all time favorite icon by you, just an icon I like a lot from a random post I happened to come across! :)

The purpose of this was to give some love to icons from different years, maybe let some past makers know that they're still appreciated (come baaaack!), and to hopefully let everyone know that even their older icons are still remembered and good to have around. This is important to me especially now that Photobucket has stopped working properly, which means even more broken links when I go back to see old icon posts. I know it's a lot of work but if I could somehow inspire people to reupload at least some of their past work/broken links to other hosts, that would be amazing! ♥

This was super fun to do so I'll probably make more of these at some point :)

If someone else wants to try, here's how it works:
Use a random number generator to choose a year (you can decide the limits, I used 2010-2017 because that's the time I've been here at LJ), a month, and a day.
Go to that day's page on your feed, like this: [your username].livejournal.com/feed/?date=[yyyy]-[mm]-[dd]
Browse the posts from that day and select one icon. It could be the best icon from that day, or the first icon you see that you like, or you could choose only from makers whose icons aren't already in your folder, or any other method you want to use. When you've picked an icon, save it, and repeat the process until you have enough icons for a praise post.
