Is this one better including a bee?

It's very difficult in such a small size!

 

Insect Hotels

I could give you the name of a few hotels I have stayed at that you could use THEIR LOGO. :D

 

True, but at this scale, it's likely that the bugs would completely take over the image! :lol:

In my opinion we should keep the original icons, I know they are different but they have the style of the artist who created them.

Also think that we are forgetting that the icons are not only used on the grid, and so this icons compared with the other style even with the "grey Waymark" shape have much more quality (when I say quality I'm not referring to the artistic work but to the number of pixels) as you can see in the images below.

 

Fact is, that icons are displayed on some page with 24x24 resolution (lists - results of searches, statistics, the grid, ... ) and some pages allow higher resolution - 41x41px (your examples - waymark listing, groups, ... ).

It's true that 24x24px icons are much simplier and look quite obsolete on todays' web, but IMHO it's still better choice than 41x41. Because 24x24 looks everywhere the same, however 41x41 is blurry when autoresized to 24x24. In addition, waste majority of icons is created in resolution 24x24 from very beginning, as Lumbricus explained earlier.

Exactly... And plus it's much better to have such icons as you doing, than nothing, or less quality ones. :)

 

PS: Have to say, that I can't wait for new ones and this topic is controlled every day, if there are some :)

I know that it's possible to jump in the summmer, but I thought the most people will have snow in their minds if they think about Ski Jumping.

I know that this is the flag of the EU. Europe in 24x24pixel and a letter/envelope is impossible.

What do you think about this solution?

Another idea: using the silhouette of Europe instead of the flag. I don't know if this works.

Lumbricus ment it that way, that silhouette of Europe in 24x24 resolution would be barely recognized. EU flag works for me.

Please, could I ask you for one thing? I'm really in love with your new icons, so could I ask you to clean and improve icons of (in meaning of Waymarking style and cleaning the icons because of process of making it from another picture format to gif, what made icons not clear)

- Grand Opening

- Political Revolutions

- human migration monuments

and your previous simple ones

- Pillars

- framed views (there was great icon from Rikitan at previous page, so you could combine it)

 

+ spanish heritage in style of another heritage icons?

 

Could we somehow support you in your job? Help you?

 

Thanks again for everything.... (+ yes I'm just not asking, I were trying to do it myself, but it was again disaster, so I believe in you...)

I was looking through the icon collection and found a different pillar icon. Would this one be better:

Spanish heritage icon is already in the style of another heritage, the inspiration for it was an old icon of an heritage category.

I really like it, and as leader would appreciate that it remain the same. :grin:

Regarding the others that i am the leader (Grand Opening and human migration monuments) do as you please. :anibad:

I understand that point of view, it's just that was already so used to those icons :anicute:

That said, I think Lumbricus is doing a great job in converting that icons to 24x24, tahnk you.

I saw now that the category French historical markers has this icon historic_markerFR.gif and the Monuments Historiques Français category has the same icon historic_markerFR.gif

 

I think that the category French historical markers is ok with this icon historic_markerFR.gif but maybe the Monuments Historiques Français would look better with a different icon such as the flag 25ca3a96-81d8-4e18-9626-7b9dc297e49b.png or the symbol of the Monuments Historiques aeb244bf-1aa6-422c-a6d6-b1776618cc7f.gif.

What you think? Perhaps RakeInTheCache the leader can decide :)

I'm fine, but I would work a little bit on this one.

 

I made it a little bit broader at the bottom, and in this case without clouds, looks better (m.o.)

Looks good, but as the leader of the "Framed Views" category I would like to let the one I did. But if more people would like to see yours, I'm fine with it.

 

I did it with the "old heaven" perhaps that's better?
