    Stemming from this post: XF 1.5 - Icons instead of Avatars on Alerts? , and getting a HUGE push in the correct direction from @Liam W , I've started replacing alerts with icons instead of avatars.

    *all moderator/admin actions - alerts are red in color.

    Here is a preview:

    If anyone would like to help, register at my Need Customization site, using same name as here.. and start sending alerts of any type, for any reason.

    Would the ability to select icon and color be worthwhile?

    Went ahead with icon and color choice in Style Properties...

    Nicely done - I like this idea.

    I may adapt the concept and have the avatar and icon, so you can see at a glance the member who generated the alert and the alert type.

    Already planned on adding back in the "Mini-Me" icon.

    So many different alerts, its a pain to do individual. I could have grouped, but I wanted people to have total abilioty to customize.

    Yes, that would probably do it.
    Although it may even work the other way too - with the icon as the "mini me".

    Pretty cool this is happening. Making life of staff/users of busy forums easier to distinguish type of alerts. You know when a user likes 100 of your posts at once? Try to find a quote alert on the middle of that! o_O

    Added ability to choose the "default" alert icon.


    Still unsure about using an avatar... in either large or small form.


    Reasoning is some "moderation" alerts, don't contain a default avatar...

    Well i don't mind loosing the avatars as the whole or have them aligned on the corner of the icon. Yeah moderation stuff appears as default avatar on XF wasn't remembering.

    This looks fantastic @Sheldon. The colored icons are a really nice touch. If you need any help testing it let me know.

    Oh **** I didn't even notice. I saw your above comment about "packaging" it but didn't know you had done it already. Thanks for the heads up.
