New feature... topic icons!

Post by OrangeRakoon » Thu Feb 18, 2016 10:11 pm

Introducing topic icons! Usable in the General Nintendo Chat and General Gaming subforums, now you can recognise thread topics at a glance! For example, are you making a thread about a WiiU game? Then use the WiiU icon, and it'll be obvious to all that it's a WiiU thread.
Let us know what you think and if you'd like to see any more icons. We've edited a few in already, but feel free to change any existing threads to give them an icon too if relevant :)

EDIT: It's been pointed out (thanks GuitarHero) that these also replace the icons you can use when sending PMs too.

Neat but maybe, using the time it took to make icons, you could have implemented a ratings feature instead. (ie where we can say "I like this comment" or "I dislike this comment", like they have in other forums) #hinthint

That said, a Zelda icon would be nice. Maybe a triforce or something.
And maybe a Smash Bros ball icon for the Smash Bros thread.

Pretty neat.

Perhaps there could be icons for other subforums as well. Like a football for the Sport forum for instance.

At the moment the icons are shared globally across all subforums, so we couldn't make sports ones available without having them usable in GNC for example - if we had unique icons for every subforum the list displayed to choose from would quickly grow quite long! Of course it's always a possibility for the future :)

@Ghost, trust me when I say that making 7 icons is far, far quicker than implementing a ratings feature.

The actual idea is that it can be used for community threads/events. The Mario Icon can be used for general Nintendo topics.

Sounds good to me, maybe there could be a question mark or something for help topics? Other than that I'm not sure what else there is to add if it's just for GG/GNC

Looks nice!

The 3DS one sticks out a bit, can you remove the white background, or does it not look so good then?
