So, I have a cool banner and a little Zidgel for the "Who's online" icon... But I want to make the site a little more creative than it is right now. That is why, in this topic, I would like help with some of the display settings including, but not limited to:

The background
Forum Icons (Forum, New Post, and Forum Is Locked)
And others.

Tell about any improvements, or post any images that could help in this topic to improve the site at all. Smile

Could someone please help me with the Forum Icons? It is hard to tell if there is a new post or not with that extremely faint orange glow...

I have tried various ideas, but nothing will work for me. Could someone give me any icons/pictures I could use (preferably Penguin related), or have any other ideas?

Have you tried using the Light-Bulb alien that lights up when there's a new post?

Ooh...I could try that out.

I would guess that:

Yellow Bulb: No New Posts
Green Bulb: New Post
Red Bulb: Locked

Hm, thanks. I get to work on that and see how it does.

EDIT: Works fine, how did you do it?

You can help by going to the "Forum Icons Verification" poll to help me choose what Icons to use. I can't figure out which icon system is better.
