New Category Icons

478 posts in this topic

The new icon for the new Religious Buildings Multifarious category is online.

Thanks to waywizard!

 

But there are still some icons missing:

Pergolas, Fraternal Order of Eagles, Battery Powered Personal Transport Rentals.

 

Please take an eye on those icons!! We need them!!

 

Unless I am missing something I do not see it, or the one for Fishing Ports seems to be gone also.

Maybe again a problem of (non-)sychronisation beween the two Waymarking web servers.

I am on WAYMARK-WEB02 with the release date of 2016-10-14.

I can see the fishing ports icon.

WAYMARK-WEB02 I have read this before, how do you find it and make the switch?

WAYMARK-WEB02 I have read this before, how do you find it and make the switch?

Finding the webserver you're on is easy: open source code of any Waymarking site and search for the string 'WAYMARK-WEB'

 

Switching the webserver is not possible. It is done automatically by the loadbalancing system of the webservers.

Only possibility: close your browser, clear cache and go to Waymarking.com.

Maybe you are on WEB01 or on WEB02. Repeat and repeat and someday it will change.

On the map, all of the RBM and fishing ports show as a Waymarking logo.

 

We are on Waymark-WEB01.

These all have been uploaded. It is caused by the sync issue of the two servers. Any time you see the broken link symbol instead of the old icon it means the icon has been uploaded by the syncing has not take place correctly. I will contact GS development in morning and ask that the sync job be run.

The Religious Buildings Multifarious and Commercial Fishing Ports are now showing on the grid.

 

Now the icons for Fraternal Order of Eagles and Battery Powered PT Rentals are not showing now. We are on Waymark-WEB01.

New category, new icon :lol:

Here's suggestion:

 

Icon with eight divisions. The symbols have some design.

6d890a5e-3e5d-4a54-97cf-7fd147b4744b.gif

 

Icon with twelve divisions. The symbols have almost no design they are just points.

31f1b233-023c-4e4c-a2db-bc2fd7401ea0.gif

 

What is your opinion?

Any suggestions to change or improve the designs?

I like the 8 division Zodiac example. The 12 division example looks like a millstone because the symbols have to be so small.

Even the Signs of Zodiac consist of 12 symbols, I like the one with only 8 symbols more. Because the other symbols are too tiny.

Or you create an icon with let's say only 3 symbols or so. Somekind of 'cut-out' of the circle. So the symbols could be bigger.

So from the first attempt the preferred is this one with eight divisions:

As you suggested I have tried a 'cut-out':

 

Diagonal:

Horizontal:

I like the cut-out icons.

I would prefer the diagonal one.

But other one would be good as well.

Thanks a lot!

This is about the grid icons for Commercial Fishing Ports, Religious Buildings Multifarious and Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement are busted.

 

This fluctuates sometimes they work and other get busted, there just seems to be at least two most times that are not showing.

 

Anyone else experiencing this?

This is the problem with the icons not syncing between the servers. There is a job that is supposed to run automatically to do this but does not run automatically. The job must to be now run manually now by Groundspeak. Once the icon for the most recent category is uploaded Waywizard will request the job to be run.

Hello icon artists :) We are in need of unique icons for the new Dovecotes category and also for Household Appliances. I am not arty that way, so who would like to get their pixels out and help us? :)

After a few hours working on it, here is an icon that seems to me well suited to the category of Dovecotes.

However, I remain open to other graphic proposals which could be put to the vote of the officers of the category.

I tried but the cat came along and spilled all my pixels on the floor then started playing with them. Now they're all covered in cat hair.

As a request, can you do one for Household Appliances and Presses. We prefer it not be a grape press. Perhaps an old stove.

 

Thank you.

Or maybe a washing machine with a wringer and a laundry line with clothes? That could be a good visual clue about the category, I think :)

Looks good, but it needs small changes in my opinion. We don't have perspectives (shadows etc.). The new icon should fit to the old ones. The rest is pretty good (shy, clouds, colors,..).

Hi there, need an icon for the new Spiritual Warriors. Could someone whip up one with the Maltese cross on a red background? (like the icon for the Monks of Ware group?) I would be much obliged!

THANK YOU Razakas for drawing this up! :) I do not have this talent.

 

The center in white is closest to the historical emblem, so while both are AWESOME, I personally prefer the center in white.

Hi, it sure would be nice if one of these creative geniuses could create a new icon for the Household Appliances and Presses category.

 

We would sincerely appreciate suggestions or perhaps even an icon.

 

Thank you for your consideration of this request. Barb of BK-Hunters

 

We would prefer it not be a press, but something representative of an antique appliance.

Lumbricus is right, here is an example of version that keeps the same style as the old ones:

Ok, let's forget the perspective and return to the 2D for icones' homogeneity.

I took the version of razalas and I removed a row of holes of flight that do not exist on this type of dovecote and I darkened the color of the pigeons in flight so that we see them better.

As a Leader in the Dovecotes category, I give my approval for this new version and wait for the final decision...

I really like your icons-- THANK YOU Razalas!! It will be hard to decide between the spinning wheel and sewing machine, but I think the sewing machine wins by a thread lol

 

May I suggest abbreviating 'Latin America' to 'Lat Amer'? Then perhaps the benchmark can be a bit bigger and the whole icon will be easier to see ...

razalas, you are sure creative. Though I really like the spinning wheel, perhaps the sewing machine would be a better fit. It does have more contrast which would show better as an icon.

 

So lets go with the sewing machine. Thank you again, it is greatly appreciated. Barb of BK-Hunters

I have also tried to create an icon to the "Latin American Benchmarks" category:

7dc2ed6f-e397-486f-8495-9400d49c2252.gif

 

I like this category icon, but I was thinking of something that included a representation of all the countries, versus just words. The category name already includes this. Something similar to this: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/1f/Latin_America_Flag_Proposal.png

 

I prefer the one above as it includes the colors of flags of the countries included in Latin America. The sundevil on the top could be replaced by the benchmark icon. Similar to what we have with Latvia Benchmarks and Belgian Benchmarks.

 

or even:

 

http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/conworld/images/0/05/Latin_America_flag.svg/revision/latest?cb=20090131090714

 

With the current benchmark icon that we already have included somewhere, possibly below the flag/country representation as done with similar categories in the past.

 

Since I'm no expect when it comes to editing gifs, I have minimal experience here, a better more simplistic solution would be to have the word "Latin", as done with Canadian (CAN) benchmarks and Vértices Geodesics (Spain Benchmarks) (ESP) and Portugal Geodetic Points (PT). It would work much better when trying to make room for the benchmark icon. I believe this would be the best solution.
