Leave the icon alone!

Post by Blake » Mon Mar 26, 2007 5:11 pm

Don't chang the icon! everyone loves the icon and the new icon is ugly and it has nothing to do with media! Although the new splash screen looks awesome, can't you have that with the old monkey that we have all come to love?

I sorta like the new icon and splash picture.

Of course, user selectable icons would be great.

I also like the new icon! Looks much more "professional" I think. Although MM needs a different standard skin, because the logo doesn't go with it (hasn't the same design).

What does the new icon look like?

And no, I'm not installing an alpha version just to find out. Image

I think the splash screen is great. - nice and sleek.. and the logo is based on a cd... so it does have to do with media.

the icon in the tray could be a little bigger though.. seems unnessecarily small.

I love the new look.

i like the old icon better then the new one.

but i like the one i made better then the new one also. :D

i do have to say the new one looks like the monkey from the barrel of monkeys toys.

but it is rather small in the system tray to see what it is.

i don't see the new splash screen cause i got my own in it.?

what does it look like?

oh yep i forgot you can change the icons if you want just make a short cut and change that icon. you can also change all the file icons if you want

they also told us how to change the splash screen some time ago.

so i did that as i said in the other post. 8)

Would it be cheeky to ask for some screenshots, for those of us not trying the alpha releases?

I prefer the new splash screen. However, I don't like the logo at small resolutions.
Best regards,
Morten

I like the old one at first glance but I suspect the new one would grow on me. :)

The new icon looks nice, but the old Monkey looks like more fun :)

this logo is too close for comfert to the barrel of monkeys logo.

and that toy has been around since the 1950's so i would be careful on making it look to close, i would go find theirs and then change mine as much away from theirs as possible but still keep the same feel if this is what you want.

but as long as i can change the brand and the shortcut icons i'll keep the cute monkey. mainly cause my sister said she'll pound me if i change the monkey.

which tells me the girls like the cute monkey.

We need a dark skin to go with the dark icon/splash picture.
