What's your opinion on our new forum icons, that are shown on our forum homepage?
I noticed that. (But I was having doubts if it's the old icon or not ;p) Anyway looks good. Although, I think you should've made a difference between every forums.
Web Dev = something like scripts or codes
SEO = <a href> pic can help
personal success = maybe an icon with a person looking successful
I like the looks of them, but if there is intended to be a difference in meaning between the two, it is not clear to me. When icons do their job, the picture conveys a message without words.
Thanks for the feedback, will take that on board. Further feedback would be most appreciated.
I like it. you wouldn't mind if I copy it to my forum right?
ownedbox can you send me a Pm please to let me know which forum you would like to use those icons on.
I like both the icon, But second one is nice. You can write any thing in that circle shape...
Thanks for the feedback kimipatel, glad you like them.
Not bad Fergal. Seems good and refreshing. As I am a bit confused why the icons can be double clicked just to know that the content on the thread is already read? Hmm. Just curious ..
Probably I hope the next thing to be updated at BAF is the theme of the forum.
The forum icon shows up in one format if there is new content in a particular forum, that you as a logged in member haven't viewed yet. By double clicking the icon you can mark a forum as read, say for example if you didn't want to read the new content and didn't want it showing up as unread when you visit the forum. That's quite technical and honestly I would say that the main function of the icons is to add to the appearance of the site. Perhaps other members have different views on this?
We will be developing and improving the forum incrementally over time, rather than making a sudden complete change to the forum design. Suggestions and feedback as to changes we should make are always welcomed and considered.
I've shown some other possible forum icons below and would be interested in members' opinions on those.

Those images are not showing correctly.... Probably because you are linking to email attachments
Thanks Fowler, they displayed fine to me because they were coming from my email, silly me. I've fixed the post now and you should be able to view them.
The icon is great, it grab my attention. May we can added mouse over styling, when our mouse point the icon it change from gray color to become color icon.
I like them a lot more than I like the other ones. The other ones were bland and made the forum look ordinary and sort of unwelcoming.
I like the look of the forum. Where did these icons come from? Did you create them or buy them in a graphics pack somewhere? Just curious.
Well he recently hired a graphic designer to design graphics such as forum icons for this forum so I assume the graphics are unique and were bought through the new designer.
thanks for the feedback everyone, please keep it coming. I'm not sure if we can do the mouse roll overs or not, will consider that.
Jerlene is correct, we have hired a graphic designer to create them for us.
Oh ok, well I think he did a nice job.
Great job. Really nice.
In one go, the whole forum's got a lift.
