PostSubject: New post icons (NEW, NO NEW, HOT)   Sun 28 Dec 2008 - 10:23

I read forums by opening the main page daily, quickly opening all forums with new topics in new background tabs, and then going through them, quickly opening all topics with new replies in the background. This is a bit hindered here since all the icons look quite alike, and the ones sticking out the most (blinking) are the ones for hot topics, not new topics.

So, in my OPINION: one of these sets would help (one is just a bit darker, the other a bit more red as well). You, dear Administrator, are of course free to use one of those or not - no pressure at all! But if not, that shaman may just wake up and do unspeakable things! Orc Shaman sleeping

I think it's very good of you to be busy with the forum while you do not HAVE too, but to be honest I don't like the recolours a lot.
It is all up to the admin of course, but I think you'll have a better chance if you try something different..
don't feel dis encouraged though, because I think it's great that you have tried, and I'm sure you can do better Smile

I am not easily offended.

Do you have an idea which way I could take the icons that would work better? Maybe some kind of border etc.?

Perhaps you could try to only make the rim/shading of the icons red.

More...









(And I was only joking about the Shaman... I would NEVER let my shaman go off to hurt somebody. Except those ugly Skaven of course.)

I like the middle one most. It's not offensive to my eyes and perhaps it helps people to better notice new posts.

Hey Some Orc!

Thanks a lot for your suggestions and the work you put into helping us out. I do very much appreciate it! That's the spirit! Smile

I am aware of the icons being a little too "look-alike". I have started making slightly modified icons a while ago but never got round to finish them.

I will pick that up again though as soon as I find some time.

Thanks for your suggestions again!
Cheers,
AT
