I like the idea and well done! I worked a little bit on your icon, hope that's okay?

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?

okay :) what im thinking about is that this tree with branches (by my opinion) could be more artistic as your later icons + moved one pixel left to not collide with one hand of frame :)

 

that human migration is better now, thanks :)

...So what to do? :)

 

We have to think about another idea, perhaps a scissor and a ribbon?

 

Something like that? 81c06d52-aad0-4e61-82e8-276633882a11.gif?rnd=0.9094965

:) Okay, this is much better than a simple coin, I'll soften it little bit. I wanted to sync the shade of this blue sky with other icons anyway.

Perfect .. I hope this looks more "coiny" now:

(together with Tourist Stamps icon with "fixed" bluesky, hope it can be switched with existing one)

All three would work, although, I do like the third one best. I realize it's hard at this scale, but is there a way to get a hint of scissors in the third graphic?

I would agree with Tante Hossi. If the first one could be made more readable, it would be the best choice. After all, the point of the category is to waymark grand opening plaques and monuments. This would be more representative of the category.

 

What do the group officers think?

I also finished all the icons from 41x41pixel to 24x24pixel and sent them to Waywizard. Now I will finish the states. If there are some other icons we should improve let me know. Waychapels as example have the same church icon like many other churches.

The German Trigonometric Points still need another icon. The one lumbricus created doesn't fit. German Trigpoints look different. A good example how they look like can be found here:http://www.Waymarking.com/waymarks/WMGK6V_TP_Eppenhning_Stra_Dorfen_Lk_Erding_Bayern_D

 

Maybe you can create an icon which fits. The German flag could be added.

Thanks!

Ummm, well, since you asked...

 

Hold on, let me put on my OCD hat:

 

Once you're finished with the states, you might consider doing the same with the Canadian Provincial Historical Markers. Currently, they all appear to use the Canadian maple leaf flag. While it is appropriate, it is also quite generic. It might be more descriptive for the Canadian Provinces to have their own flag in the icon. Just a suggestion, if you're up to it.

 

OK, now I'll put on my OCD glasses, as well.

 

Actually, there are a group of category icons that bug me. OK, not the categories, just the icons.

 

I'm talking about the Bookcrossing Zones, Wikipedia Entries, Literary Sites, & Guest Books icons. They all use the exact same icon. Even if each used the same graphic of the book, but were different colors, that would be better. However, I do have a few suggestions.

 

Maybe for the guest books, we could do something like this. Not exactly that, but something similar - open book, with a pen.

 

Maybe the Literary Sites could have a book or books with a quill pen across it, similar to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places icon, but with a book and maybe a different colored pen.

 

Maybe you could take a crack at replicating the Wikipedia (puzzle ball) icon on the Wikipedia website, in the upper left corner of the page. Of course your work space might be too small to pull that off. Maybe there is another icon on the website that would be suitable.

 

Maybe the Bookcrossing Zones icon could be like the Crossing Sign icon that is on the BookCrossing website.

 

I'm sure someone has better ideas on providing icons that will make these icons unique and appropriate for the individual categories.

 

Well, I'm starting to feel a little too comfortable in my OCD hat and OCD glasses. I'm going to have to take them off now.

 

Thanks for listening!

My Buddhist temple category actually has a Shinto temple as its icon. An icon with the Buddha might be nicer instead.

 

Also my Monuments Historiques category has a generic French flag icon. Would be nice to change this to the symbol used by the agency (see the category long description for an example)

 

Nice that someone is paying closer attention to this.

The first one labeled AK should be labeled AR for Arkansas. AK is Alaska. The flag shown is Arkansas.

I want to say thanks to all of you. As a team we did a good job with our icons.

I'll think about some in the future, like Wikipedia, guestbooks and some churches, thanks Dave for your input. For sure I'll work also on the Canadian ones and the missing US states.

Sorry for the delay in responding, yes you picked the right icon. Definitely an improvement although the round "towers" on the sides could be a bit more pronounced. Thanks for the taking the time to update this icon!
