Title: My HAF tabs are lacking

It'd be cool if there were little HAF fish icons (flavicons?) on the tabs.

They don't even need to be icons anymore, a .png would do fine.
Could just cut this icon off and save it, then set it in the html.

I'll look into it. Though it isn't showing on your browser Bad Penny II, this site does have a favicon--it's a version of the Invisible Pink Unicorn (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Invisible_Pink_Unicorn) logo.

HAF favicon blown up a bit to see: (https://i.imgur.com/M32nNjc.png)

Do you mind if I ask which browser you're using, Bad Penny II?

Firefox, telling NoScript to allow all doesn't help.
Same on IE and Edge, no HAF icon.

Fireox with Norton anti-virus software. No tab icon for me either.

OK, good. I think I may be able to at least get the current favicon working in Firefox etc. Making one that uses the HAF fish may not work--the limit on image size imposes restrictions on what can be depicted--but I'll see what I can do.
Title: Re: My HAF tabs are lacking
Post by: xSilverPhinx on December 02, 2017, 08:15:34 PM
I just switched to Firefox and have no favicon either. 
Title: Re: My HAF tabs are lacking

It's there on Chrome on Android

Looks like no flavicons on the Samsung browser.

My first attempts at using the HAF fish logo for a new favicon. I don't think they're much of an improvement over the current one, but they are more or less recognizable. The 16x16 pixel requirement poses a challenge.  :)

So, does anybody else have an opinion about the favicons?

If anybody would like to try their hand at producing one, that's cool, too. It's a 16x16 pixel square image.

The HAF fish are better than the current one, IMO.

Could you do a white fish on a grey background with a blue border?

Yup, I'd go with the fish also. Gave up trying to work out what the current one is.

white fish in grey field with blue border -- Sorry it didn't come out better, but white on grey is a tough one.

We now have four fishies--just saying "yeah, I like the fish" leaves it a bit up in the air. :sidesmile:

Dave, the current favicon is a version of the Invisible Pink Unicorn (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Invisible_Pink_Unicorn) logo. (https://i.imgur.com/M32nNjc.png)

I'll vote for the wnite unbordered background then.

I've never seen the Invisible Pink Unicorn. Er, I mean . . .

I suppose we could set up a poll. Still haven't got in to look at the actual code for this, though I've studied the procedure on what to do to set it up.

I'll sort your site access out on Friday.

A poll sounds like a good idea. :smilenod:

Post by: Bad Penny II on December 06, 2017, 01:28:44 PM
I'm for the transparent HAF fish with clearly discernible legs.

Could be just "HAF" though.

I didn't say that.

Let's vote on Davin's proposal to poll about whether or not we should have a poll or not.

Can I get a second?
Title: Re: My HAF tabs are lacking
Post by: Davin on December 06, 2017, 03:17:39 PM
Before I second your proposal, I'd like to run a poll gauging everyone's level of interest in having such a poll.

Title: Re: My HAF tabs are lacking
Post by: Papasito Bruno on December 08, 2017, 02:17:21 PM
I think I have this figured out.

1) Recusant had suggested a poll be taken to decide on the version of HAF Tabs...this suggestion was liked by xSP and Dave.
2) Davin then proposed we take a poll on whether to have the poll first suggested by Recusant.
3) I then suggested a vote should be taken on whether to have the poll Davin feels necessary to determine if Recusant's first poll should even be taken.
4) Davin wisely thought it best to gauge everyones interest in even having a vote in the first place to decide if his own pool regarding Recusants poll even be posted.
5) Dave seconded Davin's gauge suggestion, and of course Mags replied favorably with a raised handed "GIF", followed up by Dragonia's response that she likes all polls.

I personally feel that I have accurately encapsulated the direction this thread is heading in, and in doing so have come to the conclusion that we are very, very close to bringing this issue of Tabs to a close.

If you however, disagree with my summary. Please vote on whether said summary should be revised.

I haven't forgotten about this. A possible new favicon has been uploaded, just to see if it would work. If so, we'll have a more serious attempt to decide on which one to use (if somebody would like to try their hand at designing one, that would be fine, too). It may take a few days for it to appear even if my efforts were successful. If not, I'll carry on trying.  :)

Ok :grin: I'm using Firefox and it hasn't appeared yet, but I'll take this opportunity to exercise patience.   :P
