Now that there are resource icons, the resource list looks all weird with the cogs.
It does look weird. Should be an option to choose whether you want the avatar to show or the resource icon.
If a resource doesn't have an icon, it should default to the User's icon.
Give it time for members to upload them if they so choose. The feature has been here for less than a week.
Not every addon author wants a custom icon per resource.
Shelley has to make 123 ?
Members like @borbole @xfrocks and @xf_phantom haven't even uploaded all their resources from the archives.
I would have to make 47 icons.
I'm not sure anyone but themselves can be held responsible for that.
It's their prerogative to upload their add-ons, or not, as the case may be.
Took me less than an hour for my 82 resources.
I know what I'm saying is just because changes are made, doesn't mean members will readily adapt to the change. After a change like this is made it might give the impression that the resource author doesn't care about uploading icons. Letting them default to their avatar until they make the change will make the Resource List not look so bad.
Perhaps it looking "bad" gives a better indication of which ones are being actively maintained?
lol I guess but I uploaded icons for all of mine even though none of my resources are supported and probably half need to updated.
If a resource doesn't have an icon, it should default to the User's icon = No missing icons.
While I tend to agree that there could be an admin option allowing uploaders to use their avatar image as the resource icon, I don't find the default icon that bad looking...
People need to be more patient. I would focus my energy on how the RM 1.1 work on my site.
I love @*******'s and @Waindigo's resources icons
And I somewhat agree the rest (without their own icons) are quite "coggy".
I love what @Shelley did.. It makes her add-ons stand out. Which with her talent, they indeed should. I do hope the neon color changes monthly and an easter egg of a tooth brush is hidden within.
That's exactly what we did for our digital goods marketplace.
If the user specifies a custom icon, it uses it, if not, it uses their avatar.
For example: https://marketplace.digitalpoint.com/plug-ins-add-ons.1/category
I can not even find where you upload a resource icon.
Many people have managed to work it out.
At the bottom of the page for new resources, in the sidebar for existing resources.
