Service Icons Need Updating

Reported by: Jordan Kaputkin Owned by: nobody
Milestone: Adium 1.3 Component: Xtras
Version: Severity: normal
Keywords: icon Cc:
Patch Status: Accepted

Description

Many of the service icons for AIM, MSN live etc have been changed. I understand that there is an Xtra for changing to the new icons, but this should be native to the software. I believe it should be changed for 1.0.1

I don't think this belogs to xtras, as it is discussing the Default Service Icons that ship with the app.

I'm of the belief that we should request permission to use Aqua as they reflect the current icons for each service and tend to look nicer in general (except there's something off about the gtalk icon when it is shrunk).

Up2Date 3.7 looks great to me! I think we're good to go to include that as the default now...

I do like the MSN butterfly better than that Windows logo...

We can include them, but I definitely do not want them set as default. The current Aqua set looks great. If anything, we should consider pss-2 or X-icons, both of which seem less…Windows-y.

In one of the comments on there, CFM says pss-2 is merged into 1.0svn. However, I don't see it in my Resources/Service\ Icons folder. Am I blind, or is it somewhere else?

(Spam++) [16700] is the removal and replacement of better-looking icons. *shrug* then. I'm happy with our current set.

comment:9 Changed 12 years ago by Evan Schoenberg

Yeah, I don't feel a need to follow along with the "current" icons so long as the ones we're using are (a) attractive and (b) recognizable.

We could consider selectively using 'newer' icons where the new ones look better. Doing a side by side comparison, though, I don't see any icons in pss-2 or X-icons that look better in my opinion. Up2Date's QQ and Groupwise icons are better than our current ones.

comment:10 Changed 12 years ago by Jordan

Fair enough, but I do think that the butterfly needs to go - it doesn't even represent MSN anymore... At the very least make it the MSN one found here: http://www.adiumxtras.com/index.php?a=xtras&xtra_id=5239

That *is* the current Windows Live Messenger icon after all...

comment:11 Changed 12 years ago by Jordan

Though I do personally believe that the Yahoo and Jabber ones in Up2Date are nicer than the current default and still easily recognizable, but that's me.
