I vote yes.  Might take a minute to get used to the post icons, though.

I consider a key point to add a "default" post icon which reads "DONT READ THIS POST" or something like that, so people are pseudo-obligued to use a proper post icon.

Mah...  I hate post icons...  Maybe a restricted QB, FB or Generic Basic little marker would be okay...

I do think it'd be best to merge the two forums.  FB isn't *new* anymore, so it doesn't really make sense to quarrantine it as visciously.

Quote from: "Sumo Jo"
I can make a default icon that says "I am a moron" for people that don't choose an icon.  Maybe if people were to not read the "I am a moron" posts, others would get the idea that you have to actually do something right if you want a response.


at first i thought this was straight genius, but i came to think that maybe its a lil too harsh to do to new people, maybe just have it say like 'undefined' or something...

but really, no matter what youre gonna have the kids like 'how do i make it say something' and someones gonna have to explain it, and this will happen many times, so... lol.

i think the base idea of merging and adding the icons, and a lame default icon is a very good idea, and will pomote neatness and clarity, something all programmers should appreciate.

Just letting everyone know I'm closing this thread in 2 days.  That means Monday (Jan 23) this post will be closed and voting will be completed.  After that there will be a thread that announces what changes (if any) will be made and we will move on from there.

The default icon should be an acronym: IDRD. I Didn't Read Directions.
