So far 9 people responded to new design.

Positive:
1 Damien
2 Joni
3 KAmil
4 Ronny
5 dcalafiore

Don't care:
1 Manu
2 Elmar
3 AreOut

Negative:
1 [name removed]


So far so good, but it would be nice to see a few more votes, though.

18:14:58 <EWQMinesweeper>: ronny wants to change the arbiter icon in the rankings
18:15:21 <Elmar>: I forgot my login
18:15:37 <Elmar>: but I basically strongly agree with manu :D
18:15:51 <EWQMinesweeper>: so it's a clear 'NO!'?
18:16:13 <Elmar>: a very distincitve 'I don't give a shit'
18:16:20 <EWQMinesweeper>: ...
18:16:31 <EWQMinesweeper>: meh
18:17:12 <Elmar>: but I do think the eyes are too big
18:17:18 <EWQMinesweeper>: lol
18:17:30 <EWQMinesweeper>: for me it's just 2d vs 3d
18:17:57 <AreOut>: haha
18:18:00 <EWQMinesweeper>: and the small 2d arb icon is already ugly enough ;)
18:18:04 <Elmar>: yeah, I dont really see a reason to cahnge it to 3d either
18:18:04 <AreOut>: same as Elmar

I prefer the new icon.

But I can't understand the reason of "x"-shaped eyes. They seem like minesweeper smiley's ones when you lost! I don't like them.

I never understood that as well, but since the original design has X shaped eyes and people clearly stated that a new icon shouldn't cause any confusion, I can't really change them to happier eyes or sunglasses, without removing a distinct feature of the original. :|

About Elmars comment about the size of the eyes (and the X shape).....I'll try to make them look slightly smaller by softening the outer pixels of the eyes. This should also make the X shape a little less clear.

I tried to make them look smaller but on a 3x3 scale it didn't work out. I was either too small or the eyes turned lighter or other stuff that made it look ugly or too different....seems like an X shappe needs (not surprisingly) at least 3x3 pixels. I also tried to reduce the difference in 2 colors of the eyes to weaken the X shape, but that made eyes look even bigger or too light. :D

Hahaha! i can say the issue i had was adressed and I'm satisfied with the change :D
As a result the smiley now looks definitely HIGH instead :D. I like the symbolical evolution there too :lol: ... He's just left "dull and polluted" Ukraine for an Amsterdam coffee shop.
