View Full Version : The Great Prefix Icon Hunt


DaFace
04-18-2008, 08:28 PM
So, I'd like to add a bunch of new categories to the "prefix" list, but in order to do so, we need a bunch of new icons to go with them. I can probably hunt for them eventually, but I know we've got a few people around here who either like to hunt for pictures or are decent with designing graphics.

Here's the list of the categories we need an icon for:

-Local News
-National News
-Birthday
-Life (self-improvement, advice, etc.)
-Home and Garden
-Draft
-Tickets
-Casino
-Electronics
-ChiefsPlanet
-Gatherings (i.e. flag football, draft parties, etc.)
-General Sports

Improvements on any existing icons are also welcome.

All icons have to be no more than 25x25 and in .gif format.

If I use your icon, you get a free $1,000 in the casino, a generous helping of rep, and my eternal gratitude.

Nice - thanks.

The birthday's definitely a keeper. I'll have to see what other people come up with on the flag. If I use it, I'll definitely have to kill the animation.

That'll do for the national news. Thanks.

I'm still struggling with the "local" category. I want someplace where people can post stuff like the "Topeka water thread" and "did you hear about that thing that happened at Target" or whatever, but I'm not sure what to call it or what icon to use, so suggestions are open on that one.

Yeah, I hear you. My thinking is that there are threads that involve "other crap happening around KC/Topeka" on here all the time, so it seems like they should have a category. Maybe you're right, though, and it could all just go under "news." I'll think about it.

I'm afraid all this parsing will really slow the traffic down here...there will be a lot of people that only want chiefs stuff and will filter everything else out etc etc etc....people won't get involved in threads they might otherwise because they don't see them....I'm starting to think this is a bad idea...just my two cents

Well, right now you can't filter out things you don't want anyway - only find the ones you do want if you're, for example, a Royals fan who wants to check out all the Royals news that's been posted.

As for whether or not it would slow things down, I have my doubts, but you may think otherwise. My logic is that we've lost quality posters because there's too much "clutter" in the Lounge as it is, so it would be nice for those who want to to get rid of a lot of the other crap. That may sound like it would slow things down, but my guess is that less than 10% of those around here would filter things down much.

Also, if we could get a filtering system in place that worked well, it would eliminate the need for sub-forums almost entirely. The "Should DC be in the Lounge" debate would be a moot point - it could be put in the Lounge and those who don't like it simply wouldn't see it. And that would certainly encourage more participation in the subforums than we have now.

Anyway, we'll see. If it ends up being a negative thing, I'm not opposed to shutting it down or anything, but I personally think it'll be a good thing.

Hey BEP.

I like the icons, but I'm not sure they quite fit what I had in mind. The "Home and Garden" category is really meant for the "handyman" type of thing, but I wanted to include the "garden" part to make it clear that we're talking about all sorts of things around the house. I wouldn't mind yours really, but they look a little...female. No offense. :)

As for the "Life" category, my idea on that one was that it would include all of the topics that are about life in general. While self-improvement is one of those, topics like, "My kid did this cool thing today" would fit as well, so I'd be looking for something less specific than the self-help type of thing.

Overall, your work is cool, and I'm pretty impressed, so if you want to give it another go, I'm all for it. But those in particular I'm not sure fit what I was going for. Thanks for the effort, regardless!
