    2. 24 hour cooldown on repeat gauntlets
      • 24 hours must pass before submitting the same game to the icon-gauntlet. Note: Achievement badges and game icons are considered separate and may be run alongside each other. Future gauntlets are still subject to the 24 hour rule.
    3. Updates to your gauntlet
      • If you have any mistakes in your current gauntlet, let @Art-Helper know. Your original poll will be deleted and you must re-poll for accurate results.
    4. Multiple Icons
      • Completed Gauntlets for multiple images in the same set must be labeled according to the order they appear in the achievement list. (Do NOT use the achievement ID) A .zip for the badges must then be posted in the “Icon Gauntlet Uploads” thread found in gauntlet-discussion.
