I noticed a today that SF changed their forum icons from the Steelers logos to square golden boxes with the letters "SF" in them. I'm startin this to ask everyone what they think of the new icons and whether they are good (and should stay) or bad (and should be removed). My personal opinion is that the new boxes look too bland. I liked the old logos because I they looked great (I love the Steelers logo) and it seemed creative. Also, with the many colors in the logo it was easy to tell which forums had new posts and which did not. Now it is much more difficult to do so because to me the boxes all seem to look the same at first glance and you have to look hard to notice which forums do actually have new posts. I liked the old logos. I'm open to hearing what all of you have to say. Peace.

Hey look now they are back to the steeler logo.

They aren't back for me. It's still those damn boring old boxes. I guess I'll have to PM SteelersFever to ask him about it.

Lol. Aiight point taken. Still I just thought the logos looked more original and were easier to tell which forums had new posts and which didn't.

I don't think the Steelers logo was very creative. If you frequent some other NFL related message boards they usually have the logo or helmet to represent old/new posts.

With the new icons, I'm able to easily differentiate between the two just the same. Maybe you need to adjust your monitor settings.

i dont know. i still prefer the steelers logo to a yellow square with the letters "sf" in it. it really dont matter much to me regardless, but do any boards have little lombardi trophies as their icon? (i would still prefer the hypocloids over a lombardi or even one hypocloid over a yellow square)
either way, no biggie. still the best steelers site on line.

I like the new contributor/admin/mod titles but still prefer the old steelers symbols

Time takes a little bit of time. Obviously, when you are used to seeing something and it gets changed, it will look distorted at first. Give it more than a couple of days, then come to a decision on which you like better.

I personally like the SF boxes more than just the Steelers logo.

I agree that they should be the 5 Time World Champions/Steeler logo, although i gotta admit I do not remember seeing them. LOL Just not as observant as the rest.

I would like to see the vBookie feature that they have over at Cincy Bengals. Where you earn fake money from posts then you can bet it on stuff.

Well I think it would look really, really sharp having black icons with a Lombardi Trophy. :smile:

I like the new boxes..the thing I might suggest is just making the letters, SF, alittle bigger so you can see them better.

What we really need is some Super Bowl XL Champs banners to go into the rotation at the top of the forums :cool: :tt02:

I'm used to the change now and it looks good.....just a suggestion but how about in the upper right corner where its just black put something that signifies the Super Bowl wins and/or maybe a countdown clock to the start of the season.....You guys have done a really great job with this site and I'm proud to be a member.....:helmet:

I don't really care for the new fourm markers myself. But I don't feel that alone makes a site. I do think that BB2W has the talent to make some really good looking and original ones though. Not taking anything away from you SF! How about either the 5 trophies as mentioned or maybe a black Steelers helmet with SF in it instead of the Steelers logo? Maybe a black on for new post and a white one for no new?

And I do think the vBookie would be a big hit here. Along with the vbplaza store/cash system that would work with vBookie.
