@buraktuyan

Here are some icon suggestions for you to review - along with a small description of why they would be needed in a web app :

  • man: For gender variety to the user icons. #475
  • woman: For gender variety to the user icons. #475
  • notes: For notes. (There are file and book but no notes.) #896
  • attach: Again, this is very needed for attachments. Done
  • history: For version tracking, etc. #895
  • charts: For stats, charts, etc. (The current chart icon doesn't look clear on smaller sizes, maybe something without a border?) #171
  • adress_book and/or vcard: To represent "contact" or "address book". #898
  • unshare: For "undo" or "unshare" operations and to accompany the share/redo icon. #899
  • pin: For pinning or sticky commands. (Maybe a simpler and 2D looking one, as an alternative to yours?) newest one is 2D
  • envelope_read: To represent an open/read mail. #897
  • coin(s): For payment options. #584
  • clipboard: icon-paste should do
  • calculator #521

Thanks again for your already great work!

I came to request the "link" icon, to complete the set of icons for a minimal rich text editor toolbar.

Love it. I'll eventually get around to breaking these out into individual icon requests. Thanks for the request, this is a fantastic list!

So I love the idea for a save icon, but a physical floppy is now outdated. Does anyone have any suggestions for another icon that doesn't include a floppy disk?

This was discussed on Hacker News a couple of days ago. The consensus was that the floppy disk is so strongly tied to the notion of saving, changing it to anything else is not even worth considering.

My vote is for the floppy icon.

@pestaa NeoOffice uses the external drive icon, as opposed to a floppy disk, but I'm afraid you may be correct.

My request for a disk would be for a different use than saving. I was thinking about being able to show if html5 localstorage was available. Other icons could be a JS/NoJS icon. If users are not getting the best experience, I could show them why in a status bar rather than popups of error messages.

It might be for a different use, but would a picture of a disk suffice for this use case?

I was thinking that you might want both at the same time. A webapp wants to save. There a different icon that says whether you can save to localstorage. Having the same icon represent 2 things might be confusing. There are lots of html5 features that it would be nice to have icons for.

Webworkers. I would indicate the webworkers were running and you could click on it to disable them for performance reasons.

websockets are not available so you get the slow refresh version of the app.

The girl Icon is something like the user Icon that we have, but with the girly hair.
