View Full Version : Post Icon Suggestions

I can understand the theme y'all are going for with the all-blue symbols, but could we have a few exceptions? I believe these three would be helpful in making the forums a little bit easier to "read" (in terms of spotting important posts).

-- Yellow light bulb (for new ideas/suggestions)
-- Orange exclamation sign (for breaking news)
-- Red thumbtack (for sticky posts only)

ugly color choices.

I mostly want the sticky pin -- just something that stands out amongst the sea of blue and black :P

Gotta agree with some points. It's true that having a sticky icon is probably better than having "sticky: [thread title]". And in the case of polls, having both an icon and the "poll: [thread title]" is a bit redundant.
Concerning the choice of colors, it wouldn't have to be bright red. A bordeau would be good for stickies for example.

Personally I've never have troubles reading the forums the slightest bit.

But thats probably cause I'm just so god damned good. ;)
