Icons Before Usernames

Post by LH Justin on July 22nd 2010, 8:02 am

I know this has been suggested a few times, but they didn't get many votes and were lost under other suggestions.

What I'm suggesting is that if a user is in a group they could have an icon in front of their name in certain areas of the site. How it would work is each group would have a spot where you could place the URL of an image and that would appear next to the name of everyone in the group. Below are some examples.

This is similar to one of my chatbox suggestions about having an icon next to the admin and mods name instead of an @ symbol.

Not really...

Although it would be interesting to see how it worked in chatboxes. Smile

I just thought it would be cool because some forums out there have this option and it looks pretty cool.

Indeed, now that you mention it, the two suggestions are similar.
Although if I had to choose... Actually I'd rather not choose Mr. Green

Hmm, yes a very good idea...i had the same idea, putting an icon in front of a username would be great, Customize it with your own icon, maybe a yellow crown in front of admins, white in front of mods...or any variation of icons you choose. Hope this idea goes through =)

Of course. For example, if you left the box that the image URL gos in empty it would not display an icon. Thanks for your support!

It's not similar at all SPADEZ, it's completely different. Mine has to deal with putting different icons for different usergroups across the forum, not just one icon to display next to the moderators in the chatbox.

It is similar because its the same thing, only difference is I suggested it for the chatbox and you suggested it for the entire forum. Same concept.

Agreed. If it was unnecessary when I suggested a similar feature, its unnecessary and useless now.

It is unnecessary and useless, but it would look cool. Smile

I don't see how it would be annoying if you didn't have to use it though. mwii

But others would use it, and the board will be full of annoying colorful icons which would screw up the simplicity of a forum. Imagine if all users had an icon... wouldn't it be annoying?

That's what I freggin' hate about MyBB.

Not really...

I mean some forums might do that, but every member would have to be in a usergroup. Plus it doesn't screw up anything as long as the groups remain small.

If there comes an option for this, then I vote yes. But I still think this will make forums look unprofessional and messy, and not "cool" Razz

As I said, if you leave the box that image URL goes in blank, an icon won't appear.

You might be able to put something in front of everyone's username, but not individual groups.
