View Full Version : Prefix icons for D.C.?


DaFace

As you've probably seen in the Lounge, we're working on implementing prefix icons so that people can find the threads they are interested in (and hopefully eventually, not see the ones they aren't interested in).

Would such a feature be useful in D.C.? I'm not in here enough to have any feel for it. If so, what categories would you like to have?

EDIT: Here's the current list...

Politics
-U.S. Issues http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/images/icons/usissues.gif
-Int'l Issues http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/images/icons/unflag.gif
-Elections http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/images/icons/election.gif
-Environment http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/images/icons/environment.gif
-Legal http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/images/icons/justice.gif
-Economics http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/images/icons/economics.gif
-General Politics http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/images/icons/politics.gif

I guess that's kind of my issue frankly. I can think of an icon to designate political threads, but how do you differentiate between them? Is there any point in having democratic threads vs. republican threads vs. general issues threads? My impression is that there's not, so I'd lean toward keeping D.C. "prefix-free."

If you guys think there are good categories that would be useful in helping you to keep track of your conversation, though, I'm all for it. Just let me know what makes sense. If I don't get any suggestions, we'll just leave it alone.

I tend to agree with you. The only categories that would make much sense to me would be "Religion" and "Politics" (maybe "Science" or "Current Events" or "Presidential Race"), but I don't see a big need for them here.

If these prefixes were used consistently and with a little bit of work on the backend (or maybe a lot, I don't know), we could do away with the subforums and people could just choose the categories they want to have appear in their view of the message board.

That's kind of my long-term goal. If we can figure out how to let people "ignore" certain prefixes, we could create categories in the Lounge for religious and political threads and just leave them in there. People who don't like that type of discussion don't have to ever see it. That would essentially let us move to a "flat" forum style, with everything in one main forum, but where people can kind of customize their experience to their tastes.

Based on the feedback in here, I think I'll leave prefixes off in DC for now, though. If someone wants to (seriously) come up with a set of categories and a set of 25x25 icons to use, I'll get em loaded in.

Possible topics I thought of:

Religion (Christianity)
Religion (General) - this could be for other religions, or for generic discussions that are just about religion in general.

Politics (Election) - discussion about a specific election rather than a political issue.
Politics (United States Issues) - general domestic political discussion on any US issue
Politics (International Issues) - general political discussion outside the US, either stuff the US is doing in the world, or stuff not related to the US.
Politics (General) - Abstract political theory stuff. Not really tied to a US issue, but things like debating the value of socialism vs capitalism, general morality stuff about the death penalty, etc.

Law - This might be something for the lounge too. I think we tend to get a lot of non-political legal stuff in both boards that might fall under this. Either breaking legal news (which we often get here), or legal questions that the lounge gets like "that damned neighbor's tree fell in my yard and he doesnt want to clean it up. What do I do?"

Nice start. If I get motivated, I might try to dig around and find some icons that would work. And I'll think about the Law thing. Those kinds of topics could probably fit under "life," but you're definitely right that those are kind of a different animal.

Good points. I've been thinking of these more. I think it could work afterall.

I thought of a lil Church for traditional religion, Lady Justice for Legal, a US Capital Dome for US politics, a little globe with a UN Flag on top for globalism, and a Tree sun and water for environmental, a head with an aura for non traditional religion or spirituality, a ballot box with a ballot and hand. Something for economics...maybe a hand with a dollar exchaning it for something? I already have some partly done.

I found a decent little "all religions" icon that might work, assuming that it scales down decently:

http://images.wikia.com/central/images/f/f0/Religion.jpg

The rest sound great, though I haven't looked for them yet. If anyone's in the mood to look for them, Google Image search works great when you select the "small" image size in the menu bar. That restricts your search to 50x50 images, which typically will look OK when scaled down to 25x25.

If you want to take a stab at making some, I'll definitely consider them. These are gonna be tougher to come up with pre-made than the ones for the Lounge I'd think.

Oh that looks nice. I fear Lady Justice isn't going to scale well.
That's where the work is in these things. Scaling them down and then testing them on the net. Sometimes you have to go back and forth until it works or dump it for another. She scaled well as a vector...but here?

I fully understand your position when it comes to coercion. However, I am befuddled by your inability to recognize the truth. The one who carries the shotgun sings the tune. Right now, the vulnerable are having their pockets picked by those who have used their financial influence to create an environment where the less influential are sitting ducks.

Balance is the key to freedom and democracy. Why you are incapable of recognizing that concept is beyone me, especially considering that you view yourself as astute and tout yourself as intellectually superior.

OK, I've got at least something in there for every category. They're now mandatory (since they system really only works if people actually use them), but I left in a "Misc" category to make sure that we're covered in case you come up with some topic that can't be categorized under the current set.

If we need to modify this set in any way, just let me know, and I'll get everything changed up.

I went through and tagged all the threads on the first page real quick with my best five-second guess about what they should be. If I got any wrong, sorry. :p

Can I suggest some kind of icon for threads Denise started or posted in, possibly a Do Not Enter sign or Terrorist sighting Warning?

:D

Haha...the problem with something like that (or the tin foil hat) is that there's no mod for DC to put them on FOR people, so they'd have to put them on themselves.

How can we properly talk about socialism without a socialism icon? Answer me that.

I'm outraged too over my anarchy icon. It was even legible and everything.

I'm sure you'll find a way. However, since I have no idea what kinds of craziness you guys get into over here, I'd be glad to add it if you get a few other people who think it's useful! :p

Well, if others hate them as well, we could certainly turn them off. As I mentioned, I don't see them as being near as useful in DC as I do in the Lounge.

Hey penchief you can write a less complex paragraph and you will reach a wider audience.

I replaced the "elections" icon with one I hope will be less "in your face" when half the forum is filled with them.

Because you'd mislabel every thread with it.

I'm sure penchief is a good guy with good intentions. It just irritates me that he's a communist. It irritates me even more that he doesn't understand *that* he's a communist.

And I'm not saying "left leaning." Or "liberal." I'm saying "communist."

Her ya' go for your own use at least. Best I could do fast and keep it recognizable at small scale. I will most likely edit and improve on. May also do a pink flag with a star or hammer and sickle as an alt.

Sure. I just stuck with the original colors because I thought the red was for commie. Be right back.

Okay, it was a very simple change. I can make it money green but it may not hold up.

I edited because the yellow star wasn't noticeable enough.
It's the reverse of our stripes: blue and white with red background for the star which is not white but yellow.

BTW next is taco riding a bronco with an orange mane in a big sombrero hat as our Paul Revere. Maybe I'll even animate it.:D
