Ok, good point. I will see with Mike next week if it's possible to change the green icon for a "solved" icon and change also the tick icon for posts. It should be easy to fix, but as i don't really touch the forum' structure any more, I cannot be 100% sure :)


I actually agree to change these icons, especially the green one (that appears on thread's title) because it is so small, you barely guess that you can click on it to get redirected to the best answer :)

Hi There :
>> Adding "Solved" in the topic title : not possible (if it was, we would have done it already + not everyone read english).
>> Changing the size of the green button : maybe. done
>> Better green icon : we will test this one (there won't be any grey box around it) :

I like the new green check. I find it more obvious :)

To me a green icon is absolutely clear that it means Solved, and not anything else. It is widely used also in other forums. For newcomers - hover info over the icon says it all, so you just need to learn it once, and that's it. However, to make things even clearer, I would add 2 more icons in use: a red question mark for an unsolved question and an orange question mark for an unsolved question but with helpful replies. A person then should have an option to mark his post as a question or not. If you are just sharing content, you obviously don't need any solving to do. This way people will quickly see who still might need help with a problem, find helpful replies, and who is just posting something else...

I agree, but the plug-in we have added to the forum doesn't handle several states (solved, unanswered, todo, etc.) within the same topic.
Maybe later we will have time to dig into its code to improve it.

thanks for considering
I didn't know it's more complicated, than just tweaking some options :)

I know what a green check means here now and I like the large version.

Another approach could be to have a square for open topics and a checked square for solved topics. No need for color. But I like the green.

Curious, were any admins of the forum involved with the visual changes to the software?

The current version of TVPaint is very elegant.

Yes, that is the case : since the release of TVPaint 11, we try our best to create a symbiosis between the software, the website and the forum.
Next one to be updated : the website ! (hush - I ain't saying nothing :wink: )

Just a little message to inform you that last week, I deleted "Other Products" forum and archived sub-forum like "Aura / Mirage support" and "CB Paint support", for most recent messages were respectively from 2014 and 2013.

"Plug in and Third Party" sub forum has been moved in "around TVPaint's Community forum".

"Off Topic Discussions" and "Links" have been merged.

I wish you a pleasant day !
