Round number count badges everywhere?


(Michael Downey) #1

Should the numeric badges that count things be unified to show circles everywhere? Right now there are opaque circles in the notifications, but translucent squares in the topic summary block.

Hm, no, I think these should stay squares. Opaque circles are used for notifications, to indicate that a link or icon hides new content. The numbers on topic participants’ avatars, however, are overall counters; codinghorror didn’t post three new posts in that topic.

It is mildly inconsistent but I don’t have strong feelings about it. What do you think @awesomerobot?


(Sam Saffron) #4

I don’t like the idea of a little circle on a big circle, it looks odd and like a venn diagram.


(Jens Maier) #5

Hmmmm, Venn diagrams… :yum:

We already put the link counts in circles — so we should probably be consistent. I don’t think we put any numbers elsewhere in boxes? I have no problem with circles on circles.

Probably fine, submit a PR for it! (If you have not already)
