It's true. DS and SOTW members have the abilities we need to give PSU that WOW! factor aesthetically with things like banners, section icons and lil 20x20 achievement icons! Well, I'll get to that other stuff later.

For now what I'd really like to do is look at the forum icons. Consistency is what will raise PSU up, and consistent icons will contribute to that. So, do we fill the gaps or go for something fresher?

I'd really appreciate any assistance you guys could offer as we try and ready the site for PS4.

These are the forum icons THUGGEDOUT made for me when I was on staff. We never got around to implementing them though.

As you can see, this was before [Community Reviews] and [Community Opinions] were merged. We also don't have a [Contests & Giveaways] forum anymore. But I figured you'd want to see them anyway.

No prob.

Also, there should be forum icons for Xbox, Nintendo, and PC uploaded in the database for you to use. We used to have icons for those forums, but then they were made sub-forums.

So yeah, I'm not 100% sure how it works, but I would assume they're still there.

We need a new icon for Nintendo. The one we used before (Wii) is outdated now. It could be Nintendo's brand logo or something unique, like silhouettes of the Wii U gamepad and 3DS beside each other. Whatever the case, I'll give out 20k SP if it looks good.

PSU Buy, Sell, Trade can use the icons for Contests & Giveaways.

I would also recommend new icons for PlayStation 4 Games. The current PlayStation 4 Games icons have a good design but not the best transparency.

Oh man! All we need Twitch TV and Media Content icons and the whole forum will be iconised! Then we can work on maybe making some updates/improvements. Please guys, this is like being on 97% till you level up for me, so close to having all custom icons...

Also, PS4 and PS3 are different...one is a console, the other just the name on a nice shape...We maybe need to make PS4 a console or PS3 a shape.

Ah, I didn't think you'd upload the old Nintendo icon. :p

If anyone can also make new blue and gray icons for that forum, I'll give them 20k points.

I was going to say the same thing. The PS4 Games icon doesn't look right.

Aren't you a designer? C'mon man!

That's because we didn't know what the PS4 looked like at that point. So I just told THUGGEDOUT to use the logo.

But yeah, a new version that uses the console design would be best.

I'm not posting from my PC. Otherwise, I'd help you guys out.

It's cool to see my icon for PC Gaming being used again though.

The Nintendo icon was already in there. :D I just added it for the sake of killing all the stock icons.

Agriel is going to get one of his graphic designers to make us up a whole new set. If we could have just two for media and twitch as interim so we can have a full set in the mean time while they are drafted up, it'd be cool.

Sounds good, Ghost. We have very little active designers nowadays so it's difficult to get this stuff moving.

Yah, the Design Squad will be getting some revitalisation as things move forward hopefully. :D

If anyone can make these two icons it would be great. Just Twitch and Media Content for the mean time until we see what Ag produces.

I agree. I just don't have time to do anything graphically these days. Between college, and working. I barely get time to do stuff that I need to get done.

[QUOTE="Blacksite, post: 6242223]Just wondering when we should expect the new set on Agriel's end?[/QUOTE]

I'll check with him on that one.
