Board Icons
« on: July 14, 2013, 05:35:00 PM »
Ya'll may have noticed these icons:



They are the defaults that came with this theme (that was based on Veteran's day).  There's nothing really wrong with them but they don't exactly fit our theme.  That icon changes if there are unread posts in a board.

How about a loaded cartridge (unread) vs an empty (read all posts)?

Worth a try, at least!

Sounds good to me

Probably more work than it's worth but how about using an icon that describes the topic. For the General section, a set of talking lips. For introductions, two hands shaking. Pistol- use a pistol, rifle- use a rifle, reloading use a press, etc. I wouldn't think it would require too much thinking as it would finding the icons. Anyway, that's my .02.

Might not be that much trouble.  I'll play with it and let ya'll decide.

Kinda related, What about a semi auto with slide forward(loaded and ready) for unread posts and slide locked back(empty) for no new posts?
