Re: Nice new icons

Agreed. It's much easier to click. Are we going to see a yellow mouseover?

Eh...I kinda like the old ones better. The new IM icon is a bit weird, IMO.

Yes, very nice. Much more descriptive - I can actually figure out what they mean.

If I made all new icons so that they fitted in with the rest of the site, then the site would stay crap, design wise, now wouldn't it?

Regarding the first page, I think a key for the icons should be added below the reviews so users will know what they mean. I got confused at first when I saw them.

I like em'. They're easier to "hit", too. More margin for error, if you know what I mean.

yeah that'll happen later. You can see the keys if you hit the "explore recent reviews" link under the home page block.

I like the new icons - although the IM one doesn't seem to make sense - to me the push pin is a sticky. The envelope actually makes more sense for IM, but then I don't know what you'd do for fav forums...

Yea, they are good, but i do not like the pm icon. it is a tack, it should be a tack holding up a note or something.

I don't like the new ones. At least make them different colors. They are too close together to be the same colors for those of us that can't see as well.

The push-pin motif will end up being echo'd on instant message notification, and the instant message inbox. So it'll move to being consistent.

I got my tongue glued licking the favorite forums icon, stabbed myself with the message history icon, got a papercut from the Posts icon and butted heads with the new buddies icon. . . but other than that they look ok.
