Topic icons?

Post by steveberryman » Sat Oct 13, 2001 3:22 pm

Is this new board going to support topic icons like phpBBmod does?

as does UBB?

im just wondering because i think that it is kinda cool and the icons do let people know about the topic, or at least the style of the topic.

sorry if sommin like this has been posted befor but i couldnt find anything on the search.

Great new look btw :)

the phpBB guys don't like them.
i agree to a certain degree that they can be useless. not many people use them. I think someone said it would be a hack?

awwww they didn't like em?

oh well they were a bit useless and it is up to them in the long run...
if they dont like it i wont push for it to be included.. not that that would work either but out of interest how many people do like that feature of phpBBmod?

i think it is fun :p

Andre, calm down, read through a post you don't understand several times ;)

Topic icons may make it onto the list of requested features for 2.2 ... depends if someone requests it :) But no, us developers don't much like 'em and don't see much point to them (other than taking additional bandwidth)

May I anti-request them in case someone requests them and you consider to put them in? :)

I'll probably hack it into mine. It wouldn't be too hard.

They are pretty useless, from my experiences. Specially since everybody uses the default icon and it all looks the same. There's very little utility to it.

I like this feature, too :)
Perhaps it could be included in 2.2 ... but there are several more important things on the list of features, I think :p

I think it would be cool to have a topic icons feature, as long as it were really easy to turn off. IMO it would be better if there were a topic icon gallery, so you wouldnt have to deal with uploads or off-site images.
