    how wonderful, I for one enjoyed that experienced

    [–]socks 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

    Also enjoyed in dark mode - to see light grey things turn bright and colorful

    [–]cqtz 8 insightful - 5 fun8 insightful - 4 fun9 insightful - 5 fun -  (0 children)

    I like the clearer icons. I just don't like that they're grey by default (like what bobbobbybob said).

    Unpopular opinion: I think it looks cleaner.

    [–]SaidOverRed 5 insightful - 4 fun5 insightful - 3 fun6 insightful - 4 fun -  (2 children)

    It does, but the contrast I still think it's missing something. Maybe it's a little too low contrast?

    [–]icebong 3 insightful - 3 fun3 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

    Yeah, I do feel the same, cleaner but there is some contrasts missing. It's mostly the face that could do with some tweaking, the bulb is okay IMO.

    But maybe it's that we aren't used to change, lets see after a week if it happens to grow on us.

    My comment below would help fix this.

    [–]Node 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

    That's less important when they're harder to see.

    [–]bobbobbybob 6 insightful - 7 fun6 insightful - 6 fun7 insightful - 7 fun -  (29 children)

    really bad. It is like the life and colour has been sucked out of saidit

    It is like the life and colour has been sucked out of saidit.

    Yeah. It has a downer feel to it.
    .

    It creates an impression of inactivity. Particularly to lurkers, who comprise the majority of the site traffic.

    Did /u/Magnora7 propose this change?

    [–]AmericanMuskrat 6 insightful - 4 fun6 insightful - 3 fun7 insightful - 4 fun -  (20 children)

    u/enefi made the new icons for us cause the old ones were blurry.

    I agree they need to be less film noir when unchecked but that's just a tweak needed, over all it's going in a good direction imo.

    [–]JasonCarswell 7 insightful - 4 fun7 insightful - 3 fun8 insightful - 4 fun -  (11 children)

    I'd like to see the bulb larger, without rays when off then with thicker more visible rays when on, for both light and dark versions.

    I like that the rays are white over dark and black over light.

    Bonus points for adding a central white gradient from the center of the bulb outwards to yellow.

    IMO the face needs a dark outline in light mode when voted active. I'd also change the non-voted face to a neutral expression (o_o).

    Alternative to the grey icons could be a yellow circle and bulb silhouette outline.

    I'd like to see both the unvoted inactive light versions be lighter grey and dark versions darker grey for more contrast when voted active.

    I could have done all this faster than it took to type this.

    I really want one bulb in a hundred to flicker, but only infrequently.

    [–]JasonCarswell 1 insightful - 6 fun1 insightful - 5 fun2 insightful - 6 fun -  (9 children)

    Learn to code.

    [–]AmericanMuskrat 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

    I was a programmer, I don't do it anymore.

    [–]socks 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (7 children)

    I it's partially a joke. No need to be so serious.

    [–]JasonCarswell 2 insightful - 3 fun2 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 3 fun -  (2 children)

    My joke answered his joke.

    You're butting in. It's an open forum. We're free to do that. Most of my new messages today are from you, clogging it up with inconsequential timesuck. Make your messages count more if you want authentic interactions. Reflect before you post. Or just do what you want.

    [–]Node 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

    Don't bother responding to " inconsequential timesuck...."

    Have to agree with the operator of the 'socks' account. It appears to just be about trolling and presenting false leftists narratives, so resisting the urge to reply when you have anything else to do would be to your benefit.

    [–]socks 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

    But you always respond, Jason. Don't bother responding to " inconsequential timesuck...."

      k

      Jason seems prickly at times...

      [–]AmericanMuskrat 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

      Oops, typed that in the wrong place, Jason asked why I didn't learn programming.

      Jason seems prickly at times.

      It's important for him to accomplish something and he feels he's running out of time. That'd be my nickel psychoanalysis.

      i'm too blind to notice the old ones were blurry. But why not just fix the blur?

      [–]AmericanMuskrat 4 insightful - 3 fun4 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 3 fun -  (4 children)

      A lot of us don't have good enough eyesight to think anything of the old icons being blurry. I didn't either. But when it was mentioned I noticed.

      But why not just fix the blur?

      D3 said something about an accident. I don't think there was an easy way to clean up the originals.

      [–]bobbobbybob 2 insightful - 3 fun2 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 3 fun -  (1 child)

      I don't think there was an easy way to clean up the originals.

      I bet I could. 10000 hours in MS paint and all that. why didn't they ask?

      [–]socks 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

      This place isn't run like a corporation (eg. Conde Naste). Someone proposed a good approach to icons and it was accepted.

      [–]JasonCarswell 2 insightful - 3 fun2 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

      The small icons were blown up and thus blurry on phones.

      Making them vector images would have been easy. Making the code accept vector images may have been another thing all together.

      [–]socks 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

      Yes - and they're much better now

      [–]socks 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

      Yes - and it's good to see that votes bring live and color to the page; if they're grey, that's the fault of the user not voting

      [–]Tom_Bombadil 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

      over all it's going in a good direction imo.

      Is it?

      [–]bobbobbybob 3 insightful - 3 fun3 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 3 fun -  (2 children)

      i think it was just a keen person enfli? u/d3rr knows

      maybe m7 had something to do with it, but I doubt he has time outside of having his mind fucked by the mayniac

      Fret not my fellow malcontents

      Many thanks.

      Fretting is the flow state of the malcontent.
      Happy habitual dissenters.

      just hit up this page, you're especially insightful there: https://saidit.net/user/me

      [–]bobbobbybob 1 insightful - 3 fun1 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 3 fun -  (1 child)

      lol. that insightful icon is like a little piss hole in the snow.

      ha, fuck it is

      [–]socks 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

      Until you brighten them up buy selecting them. What joy.

      [–][deleted] 5 insightful - 6 fun5 insightful - 5 fun6 insightful - 6 fun -  (0 children)

      I like how the old ones were so bright they could make the background seem black. With such power, they can afford to stay yellow even when inactive.

      [–]d3rr 4 insightful - 3 fun4 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 3 fun -  (1 child)

      I like the grey then colored approach. The voting buttons should not stand out on the page, they are boring and always there and expected. The titles and the thumbnails should pop.

      [–]socks 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

      Me too. It's an excellent approach, and one could argue that this encourages others to vote on posts, to brighten up the page. And I find it looks even better in 'dark' mode (white text on dark background).

      Live, light, laugh.

      LOL

      (I hated that movie)

      [–]send_nasty_stuff 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

      The old ones look just as bad if not worse. Why is it so hard for saidit admin to find a good looking light and laugh icon? Seems weird. Makes the entire site look bad.
