Meaning of topic icons

Postby AleCes » Sun Jan 09, 2011 5:26 pm

Since I just had an exchange with localghost about changing a topic icon in one of my posts, I thought it would be good if you administrators post an announcement containing a key to their meanings so that we users are provided with a standard set of signals.
Only this Image seems to be an obvious one, indicating SOLVED status.

Sorry for the belated reply. It has been a busy week. This idea sounds good to me. I will give thought to it and prepare some kind of short guide about meaning and possible usage of those icons.

Right, I guess I should have placed this topic on Comments & Wishes?

Bump! Two years have elapsed since then. Where have you placed this short guide? I'd like to take a look. Thank you!

In the meantime another thought: if you would likt to have further or different icons, let me know. If you would prepare small images for the icons, in the same size, I could add them, and replace some.

The existing topic icons are standard icons of the forum software, I would be glad to implement new icons indicating TeX related topics, as symbols for the content. Ideas: a LyX icon, an error icon, a generic editor icon, a MiKTeX or TeX Live icon ... we have categories and especially TeX, but icons could be a nice visual addition. I'm just not good at drawing, but would implement suggestions with images quickly.

Neither am I, but I'd be gladly of help if you tell me what to do.
