MX/antiX Wiki icons

#1 Post by Jerry3904 » Mon May 25, 2015 8:23 am

We are setting up a new Wiki, with the following Table of Contents (Categories):
About (e.g., database of our applications)
Applications (e.g., PDF)
Hardware (e.g., Sound)
Networking (e.g., Broadcom)
Other
System (e.g., Wine)
I have inserted a nice (to me) image for now on the home page (see below), though I am not sure we can use it in the long run.

What would be ideal is to have a coherent set of generic icons, one for each Wiki category. Something like what Adrian set up for the MEPIS Wiki (concept only). Any thoughts about a source?

What sizes do you need? Can take look at it.

Thanks, not sure. Here is a capture of one Category page, with the yawning blank space, if that helps.

Here's a mash-up with a 32x32 icon. Is this the right size?

It is not possible to place an icon with a page title. That field is just text.
We will need to decide on a different location.

That red wiki logo doesn't go well with the other elements of the page, IMHO. Can we use something simple instead and change it later? Like this one?

OK, but the title has to be "MX/antiX Wiki"

I saw the image rather in the big space to the right of the category listings--maybe I should not have used the word "icons".

Hmm.., we're losing the effect of the M and W being identical but upside down in the Crackdown font. Have to think about it.

There's a danger that anything you put in that space will look like horror vacui.
