Site fave icon anyone??



  • @L-Aura --hey there, say, ... me too, i like it too... 🙂



  • What's happening with the fave icon?

    BTW I really liked the nice clean lines of your first ditch effort.

    I like that first one as well. It is not proper format for an faveicon though and I've not had time to mess with it. Thanks for the reminder.

    Edit: Done. It is just showing up as a red dot, however, and this is low priority item for me just now 😉



  • @toby The icon is showing on my home screen, but it's tiny. DuckDuckGo's is twice the size. Can you enlarge it a bit so we can at least tell it's a mountain on there?🐈



  • Seems Like some obscurity might fit? 2 Ideas; templates to work from

    Gnome Edit:
    After 17 days of laying dormant,
    I took a stab at it
    That seems to have stirred things up
    Always Glad To Have Been the Catalyst.



  • Kind of like the unobtrusive aspect of current. Subtle enough to let you know it's there without competing with the main attraction: the route at hand.

    Mobile devices also account for vast majority of website traffic in modern days so nuances get lost when shrunk down to fave icon size. I took @halfwit first effort (I liked the simplicity) and transformed it to an appropriate format without messing about with separating layers, transparency or such. To wit, if you look closely, you'll notice the red dot is bordered and back grounded by a white square. Maybe somebody with more talent and interest than I can go back to his original and do it up proper?

    I get that the one I picked (needed something and had other priorities) could be improved. For example, it is more mountaineering than rock and ice. OTOH, mountaineering is kind of the grand daddy of various specialist fun and games like rock, ice, boulder, etc. so I thought appropriate.

    Open to ideas. I'm not a graphics person. Alternatives need to be baked and ready to eat. ✌



  • Yeah I'm super ok with anyone doing literally anything with what I have to make it better, or coming up with their own thing. Having only spent 30 minutes in adobe, I'm not invested 😛



  • A lurker passed these along to me if you want to try one of them out...
