continuing where rand al'thor stopped.

we now got the mail with our code
05N7g
05,12 08,11 10,09 12,19 14,19 16,09 18,11 19,12 21,12
05,10 07,10 09,06 10,07 12,17 13,16 16,07 17,06 21,10

05N7g, is again an imgur picture
which is the same as before but without the letters
marking the coordinates in this pattern
connecting them and cutting them out
enter image description here
It's our icon
enter image description here


Think grid points, not squares, and connect them:

The puzzle consists of four images, each of which is a reddish square with five characters in it. Using those five-character strings as Imgur codes, we get the following four new images:

First Second
Third Fourth

Putting them all together yields a single image:

Whole grid

This gives the following instruction:

SEND EMAIL WITH QUESTION ID AS SUBJECT.

I sent an email to the address mentioned in the OP's profile (incesterror21@gmail.com), and got an auto-generated reply which contained the following text in various formats:

05N7g

05,12 08,11 10,09 12,19 14,19 16,09 18,11 19,12 21,12
05,10 07,10 09,06 10,07 12,17 13,16 16,07 17,06 21,10

The first five characters are yet another Imgur code, yielding the same combined image grid as above except without the letters:

Grid

So I'm guessing the numbers can be interpreted as positions on this grid, in order to yield colours which can be put together for the final solution.

Partial

Following @rand-al'thor's answer

When you email the OP's email address from his SE profile with question ID (51547) as subject, you receive an automated reply:

05N7g
05,12 08,11 10,09 12,19 14,19 16,09 18,11 19,12 21,12 05,10 07,10 09,06 10,07 12,17 13,16 16,07 17,06 21,10

Then

The two lines of numbers looked like x,y coordinates to me.

This gives us something like this:

enter image description here

Which looks like a space invader to me :)

enter image description here

Update:

Placing the coordinate-generated image on the image with colors we get:

OR
enter image description here

Ignoring the black border.

It covers 4 colored tiles in both cases:
RRGR or RGRR (top to bottom, left to right)
