Theme update - what are your thoughts?

#1 Post by Turaiel » Mon Sep 03, 2018 9:19 pm

Hey all,

You may have noticed that the icons on forums and topics have changed. I've updated the Twokinds Subsilver theme to adapt the higher resolution icons used in the prosilver theme. I'm interested in hearing what you think of the new icons. Please vote in the attached poll to let me know what you think!

Edit: If you don't see the new icons, or you see glitchy-looking icons, please perform a hard reload with either Ctrl+F5 or ⇧⌘R. For mobile browsers, you may need to load the page in private/incognito mode to see the changes.

Icons look a bit out of proportion with the text (too large). And I prefer the old color style.
If it moves but shouldn't: Duct tape. If it doesn't move but should: WD-40. With a hammer everything fits, and if it still doesn't fit: bigger hammer. If it can't be fixed with a hammer it's an electrical problem.

And I can't vote.

And now that I am making a double post here: I can't edit my previous post here in the News Bulletin Board :P

Yeah, sorry. I do prefer the old icons. As Neutral stated they're a bit too big compared to text size.

They're not terrible but I can't say as I like them all that much. They're kind of bland, for one thing. The old ones stood out a bit but these ones just blend into the background.

What Lief said. The old icons fit the theme much better.
If the universe is infinite, does that mean that there is a version of me out there who's thinking the exact same thing?

While we're on the topic of alternate universes, is there one where I'm a lawyer? If yes, then I may be more evil than I thought.

I find that the old icons had much more utility and were far easier to see.
Sorry! Gonna have to go with "No" here.

Personally i like the new stylish icons. they make the place look neat ordered and shiny. They could use a bit more contrast thoguht and look a bit too similar from one another. But looks cool.
However i will have to say no here. The icons are nice but contrast a lot with the rest of the UI which looks quite flat.
There are three things that motivate people: Money, fear and love.

Upon further review and theme swapping; The icons look perfectly fine in the Prosilver theme, but they really just don't fit the Subsilver one.
