Color and B&W Read First: New art icons.

We've decided to merge Black and White with Color Art. In order to organize the forum better there are new Post Icons for the kind of art you're posting.

Here they are:


Color Art. If you are posting anything with color, then select this icon.


Black and White art. Select this for anything that's greyscale (except lineart).


Lineart. If you are posting an unshaded or uncolored drawing then select this.


This is for when you post multiple images of different types. If you're posting something that's colored as well as something else that's black and white then select this.

These are REQUIRED!

Please use these from now on. Its the first thing you select when creating a new thread, so you cant say you missed it. If the your image changes and doesnt fit the right icon anymore then you can always edit your post and change the icon.

Shnazzy idea. I was wondering what they were for. Totally makes sense now

Why can't they all be round? :/ Or square?

I just think the forum would look nicer if the icons were all the same shape.

I also think the rainbow gradient icon clashes a bit with the graphic look of the forums.

Just my 2 cents, I can live with both of those.

The lineart icon is my absolute favorite of these.

Critiquing the user icons?
...
...
sure.
whatever, they work.
I do prefer this to the two seperate sections, streamlines looking at everything, and still keeps it categorized.

It's a good idea in my opinion.
But I agree with Traum4, it might looks a little strange with the rainbow colors on the more or less gray-scaled forum design.
Well, well, it's a matter of taste I suppose...

I'm just glad people won't be mis-posting as much anymore... Myself included. So what if they look a little thilly, I think they're cute. Yay mods.

hey I think Gordon's right, the icons he made are sure more similiar each other, the icon i don't like is the strange halfround-halfrectangle one for the multiple art types...but that's ok, icons are good to distinguish everything

hmmmm... I don't care, all looks the same to me. But a little color on the icons won't do any harm. and I agree with the same shape thing.

Seriously? Did you not see that the last post was written in 2007?

They aren't quite new now.
