Nice icons on the forums

Just logged on to see the nice new pretty icons. I personally think they look pretty darn good. I certainly like that they share a common style.

Well done to whoever deserves the credit smile

PS It just struck me that this group is called "Board and Document/Wiki Discussion". Shouldn't it be "Board and Documention/Wiki Discussion"?

Documention isn't a word
Documentation is, heh  :twisted:

Still, I think it works fine the way it is

Re: Nice icons on the forums

Its too long. 'Board and Wiki' would be good enough.

Yeah. Switch to this immediately:

logo from the top of the forum here.

Surely somebody will post a logo that contains the word wiki shortly.

Re: Nice icons on the forums

I would say its the space *under* the icons that's too big. if they could be floated to the right of the title instead of having the title underneath, that would work.

I like them, but agree... and think they'd look much better if they were scaled down to about 70% of their current size.  A bit more of a button look around the edges would be a nice touch, too.

Re: Nice icons on the forums

dibble: they're SVG, so i can easily scale em down a tad.

though i agree with dusty, a better solution would be to put it alongside the title, which wouldnt be too hard.

thanks for the comments guys

that's the second time I've been (indirectly) called impatient today. Last time it was the big man himself.

Dunno whyI expect so much. :-D

Re: Nice icons on the forums

/me puts his eyes back in his head.

Wowzers. At work on my 1680x1024 monitor, they didn't look quite so big..at home on my 1024x768...they kinduv slap you upside the head. But in a good way. wink

I think 70% of original size would be good too.
