I think that's normal. Maybe you have the "zoom" on your browser high over 100% because of the 4k resolution?

I downloaded the icon and view it on IrfanView, zoomed 100%. Here is the result:

Upload the icon with higher resolution will be better.

Alright we're revisiting our voting icons, thanks for the suggestions.

They are also blurry on the mobile website. You could use a higher quality png or SVGs

The smiley looks blurry to me too. I guess I have gotten used to looking at it.

Maybe it is too detailed and something plainer like these icons would do it: https://old.reddit.com/r/Lightbulb/comments/bc8e22/a_reddit_alternative_within_reddit_itself (these are 30x30 ours are 25x25, but they look so much clearer)

Yeah I think we just shit the bed on resizing the icon

Not a bad idea! I'm down for giving it a try. The primary complaint about saidit, by people who reject it, is that it's "ugly" so anything to remedy that sounds worth a try!

Check out how fark's mobile site does their "insightful" and "funny" icons, they're very flat and plain. I agree ours is too complex and that makes it ugly and needlessly attention-grabbing in a visual sense. https://m.fark.com/comments/10386888/ISIS-sought-to-get-people-to-embrace-its-view-of-Islam-Lets-see-how-that-worked-out-for-them

Maybe we could update the submit/create sub buttons too, they're kind of ugly in nightmode. Maybe we could have nightmode versions that blend in better.
