The icons in the forum...

Post by Frederik »

Hi,

I'm not sure who's responsible for this (Didelco and/or Clipi), and I'm aware that you're currently trying to make adjustments to the graphic parts of the forum, in order to make it look more nice and in line with the new web-layout...
All this is very fine, but....

The current icons are too similar and it's thereby almost impossible to see if it's a "New post", "New post [ popular ]" or if it's a "No new post [ popular ]"... :?

I've attached a screen dump to explain better what I mean...
(an image often say more than 1.000 words... ;) )

I find the new icons very nice and would like to keep them, however, can't we adjust the colors as follow:
"New post" = Green tick
"New post [ popular ]" = Dark green - or even better, Green but animated tick
"No new post [ popular ]" = Yellow/orange tick

Just ideas!
But keep up the fantastic work, guys!! :D
We all appreciate it!! ;)

Cheers
Kim Frederik

Holá José,

You don't need to apologize anything...!! ;)
We all really appreciate all the great things you've been doing with our new web-site!
It looks sooooooooo GOOD and professional..!! 8)

That's also the reason why I'm suggesting to keep the existing tick-icons, but make adjustments/amendments to some of the colors... ;)

Keep up the great work! :D

Cheers

With the new icons, it's difficult to see if ther's a new posting in the "Announcement" and "Sticky" threads - unless you look at the Last posting dates...
Can this be changed somehow..?? ;)

Thanks

I think the new balls are great!!
However, I would like to suggest (if it's possible...?!) that you change the colors a bit to the following:
New posts: Orange (sun yellow) X
New post [ Popular ]: Bright yellow X
New post [ Locked ]: Red X
No new post: Green/Lime X (like it is today...)
No new post [ Popular ]: Light Blue X
No new post [ Locked ]: Gray X

The change you've made to "Announcement" and "Sticky" is better than before, but instead of the white color for the signs, could it be orange/sun yellow..?? ;)

Think that should do it... :D

Cheers

i have to agree with Frederik about changing the icons.
the current ones are not so good not only aesthetically but
also not so functional (i can not recognize the "popular" threads
and the new answers in a thread).

I think new post should have different color icon than red. Red is fine for a highlight but as icon main color it feels a bit too strong. Also now if announcement does have a now post, icon won't show that.

I wouldn't suggest that... Primary because most threads isn't new... ;)
In my opinion there should always be many "green" icons - because it'll look good with the new design... ;)
Leaving the green color suits me perfect, however, the red color imply that it's locked (IMHO)...

Why not follow the guides I've mentioned above..?? :?
New posts should be "sun yellow/orange" - you know, this warm kind of yellow... ;)

the true is dificult to find a good icons for dark background, so the actual are a compilation of some diferents themes and I had to modify lot of them and create news, and i am not hapy with results

If any one can improve some icons will be good to change it, I hope to improve them in a few time, I like so much your proposes and i am acording with most of them

sorry just now i have no time for make this modifications, but when I have a litle I will do
