How 'bout adding a genre icon beside the games in all games list?


Over 'n out

Hm.... not an entirely bad idea... I'll give it some thought ;)

Indeed. To bad Stan's annoying sales pitch isn't in it LOL
And: the idea has merit! But then again, I'm not the one who's going to have to script it :)

Script? Who said anything about scripting it? :whistle:

on one hand i like the idea, but on the other, i think genre icons won't be so
well fitting the overall look of the site, unless we would add category icons in
general - not only for games.

most presumably, code implementation of those icons wouldn't be that a big
deal for kosta, after somebody has provided suitable grafics.

could be an idea for a new design contest, though - make a set of different
genre icons in pixelstyle...or such. hm, let's keep this in mind! :whistle:

Well, I hope all the stuff is in a database, so it shouldn't be to hard to switch an icon based on the 'genre' field in the 'games'-table (or whatever)... If it has to be done by hand the task will be quite cumbersome... OMG

Well it didn't work like that last time, but maybe this will be different because it's just dealing with the main site.

hmm dont get it :eeeeeh:

It comes down to this:
To know which game is which genre when listing all games (http://www.abandonia.com/genre.php?genre=allgames&page=0), he suggests to put an icon next to each name.

Personally, I love the idea. It's always a pain to browse through a list of games when you don't know what which game could be.

I also had few great ideas when I was newbie to this site! Actually when you come to a new site, you instanly see lot of advantages and disadvantages, so I would recommend to every newbie that he writes a couple of ideas! :ok:
