    Stars weird...

    Post by User on Fri Feb 24, 2012 8:57 pm

    I have noticed that all the topics that are popular have a star beside it (well, the ones with two or more pages worth). It seems, I don't know, out of place to be seen in a Dark Souls Forum.

    Wouldn't it make more sense for it being an Alluring Skull instead? It would seem more proper, no? It's just my opinion, though.

    It appears when the thread has 25 or more posts

    I've never even noticed those stars. Are they even necessary?

    I presume they just come with the forum layer out, and i reckon only the bottom layer (soapstones) are what they can change, not the star icon..

    I have no problem with it though personally, dont really know of anything that would be more suitable :|

    No, the star Icon wasn't their before when the forum just opened, if I remember correctly. They added that in I think.

    Like I said, the alluring skulls would be better. Their blue, which blends over the orange and white stones. Just sayin'

    blue skulls? seriously? silly that don't blend thats called colour clash lol!

    I'd put my vote for having a little eye orb or a WoW symbol or something next to it, bit more discrete than a blue skull big grin

    I still think there's no reason for them to be blue, just such a random colour to be fair lol!

    I actually think the alluring skull is a great idea....It makes perfect sense: it's easier to see than the star, it corresponds with the in-game item (undead are lured to the item, people are lured to popular topics)...

    and I am amused that I only just realised that cook was referring to an item the alluring skull, not just a random blue skull that is alluring... Prostration Prostration Prostration

    bit of a fail moment there silly

    My mind just went into overdrive when I read that.

    I think that's a bad sign.

    I want to reply here somehow, but I can't think of something that would legitimately be related to the conversation at hand, so I'm just going to post this meaningless babble in an attempt to simultaneously respond and not look like an idiot, the latter of which I'm probably failing at miserably.

    You don't look like an idiot. You look exhausted and tired. Rest will help you, friend.

    As for the Switch, I am still open for replacing the stars of the forum with alluring skulls. Who's with me?

    Alluring skulls for hot topics, and maybe for locked ones, Lloyd's Talisman haha.

    The only reason for the star is to let you know that it is "popular". You recognize the star already, obviously, so that means it is doing it's job. Changing it would be pointless and would bring questions on it's existence, just as questions are being asked right now.

    Apparently not, if their are those in the forum that have been here near the start who have, interestingly enough, barely even notice it all all.

    Alluring skulls would be more noticable, as it stands out against orange and white surfaces, the Soapstones, more than yellow does. Even more so, for those who play DS, they would instantly recognize it as the Alluring Skull, in which was designed for attracting undead towards a hit area. If it were to ask questions, it would be not of why it is their, as any who play dark souls can understand it.

    I find the skulls to appeal to the game and thus better than stars

    I don't think we will be changing the stars. The skulls sounds fun but they would be too small to be recognizable and the star is more fitted for the role as it is what forums generally use.

    It may be changed at some point but this is, for now, not a priority.

    Can't believe I never posted in here, swore I did... Anyhow I think it's a good idea, and Llyod Talismans for locked threads isn't a bad idea either, keys always open things in Dark Souls.

    Alas Fex has submitted her ruling.

    Well, at least the idea still stands in case of their being a change implemented. It isn't an absolute no, so it can still happen. That seems like a form of winning, no?
