Default badge icons


(Bas van Leeuwen) #1

Just wanted to share something that we can improve:
Better default badge icons. Currently most of them use fa-certificate, but Font Awesome has soo much more too choose from :slight_smile:

I spent half an hour grabbing some more unique icons for the default Getting Started badges, and IMO it just looks much much better, compare:

with Discourse Meta

Pretty, right? :blush:

I know it’s a bit of bikeshedding, but I really feel little things like this can help a lot with a Out of the Box Discourse install.
Unless you are being sneaky and want all admins to experience a quick-win, in that case, leave it as it is

Could you please list the fa- names next to the badges that you’ve coupled them with? Edit: Excellent! Any additional suggestions anyone?

I don’t see why we shouldn’t polish these up a bit.

Amended my original post, can you turn it into a wiki so others can collaborate?
