I'm seeking someone to replace ADISC's icons with AB/DL ones.

For example, the 'new thread' icon could have a diaper on it, the 'new post' / 'post reply' icon could have baby powder, etc.

The icons should use the same colors as the originals, and should look good.

Any takers?

I am not much of the artist, But I thought origianly we were not going to go with any strong TBDL themes. As I can get away with having the tab open without raising any eyebrows. So I can quickly switch to something else important looking.

I think this would just destroy the point. So If you were to implement it. I ask if we can have the option of picking the Two. I prefer the Normal VBulliiton Icons at the moment. Nothng Wrong with them.

But I would still like to see what the icons would look like though :D

Ill get right on that...

I do prefer the default VB ones, but an AB/DL alt theme sounds okay.

EDIT!
Here ya go... I was thinking something like this:

I also added the fall banner


These are just DRAFTS and not final images.

Mandi can you clean yours up a bit? They are a little too hard to see (ie, dont use Jpegs!)
Jpg, is a lossy format. Every time it is re-saved it strips data. So, if you edit, and resave those a bunch of times the file will actually become corrupt. Use png or tiff format for good quality. PNG is best for non (greater than) 256 color web graphics.
For all 256 web colors use GIF.

Love the Fall leaves banner, Drew. One of my fav times of the year.:smile:

I'm not too fond of having something TOO obvious, but the little buttons can't hurt.
Ohhh.....a baby pram on the edit button! Now you know I love that icon.;)

Drew, what font do you use for the buttons and the logo? I'd like to see if I can mock up a set of Murrine-esque buttons based on those icons and that font.

First, thank you both for creating these snazzy icons.

Before you keep creating icons, I think I should give you more of an idea about what I want.

Here are the icons for which I want replacements made, sorted by category:

Please note, however, that:
(1) The replacements don't all need to be made at once.
(2) Icons at the top of this list are more important than the ones lower down.
(3) All icons should use the same style, look nice, have clear, readable text, and an ab/dl/ic/babyfur-theme that isn't too graphic. The icons should be cute and stick to the theme, but they should be something that shouldn't worry or gross out a teenager who comes to our site looking for support.


With those guidelines set, here is my feedback on the specific icons so far presented:

Drew:
* Good use of safety pins
* Very good response time, thank you for jumping on this!
* The text on some icons ("New Thread", "Quote") is too hard to read
* The graphics (quote icon, edit icon) are perhaps a bit too simple

Mandi (first version):
* very slick presentation
* aside from the "new thread" icon, it is quite hard to tell what any of the icons are meant to represent
* the rounded edges look very professional

Mandi (second version):
* Much clearer use if icons, only 'post reply' is unclear
* both 'edit' and 'new thread' seem suitable for including as is, post reply and quote would be, if their icons were clearer and better fit with the theme

I'm looking for icons which are similar to the existing vBulletin icons, but which have an AB/DL/babyfur theme... so they can fit in with existing icons, but they also give the site a distinctive look - something different.
