I like the water color look of the folders, but the little flame doesn't really look like a flame to me--it's more like a little orange flower. I'm on a 21" monitor at 1280x960. A simple candle flame might be easier to see, but it doesn't carry the same meaning.

If you can find me a suitable substitute (scalable) for the "little flame", I'll be more than happy to consider it.  I just don't have the artistic ability to hand-color flames onto the folder itself.

Howabout something less bright?

Colors that are somewhat more subdued?

@Wayne

It might be a bit too subtle, but a partially burnt folder (something mostly whole with a few signed edges and tiny holes) might be fun. . . . But that kind of implies a burnt out topic instead of a hot one. How about a hot pink lipstick kiss? Maybe not. But with the flames, I think that showing the aftermath of the flame is often more effective than the flame itself, but again. . . .

EDIT: Looking at your Buddy Jesus avatar, I'm thinking that a little puffy heart would be just as clear as a little flame--only it conveys that people love the topic instead of it being a hot topic. It's also a more positive symbol. You think? I'm getting dangerously close to criticism here, but that's not my intent. :-)

Yeah, I can appreciate that we're seeing them out of context :-)

As long as this "hah hah I'm a happy mongoloid" GIF mistranslation of the :-P smiley is replaced with something sensible, I'll be a happy camper. :)

Because I'm a such a wonderful person, I'll donate one alternative:

I like the new set(I swear I do! ), but I have a small request/observation...

Would it be possible to change the color a little bit on the padlock on locked threads??  It kind of bleeds into the gray background area and makes it hard to see.

At first I was wondering what all the fuss was all about, then I did a forced refresh...  oooo pretty! Good job Wayne!  :pint: :-)

EDIT: Btw, would it be possible to incorporate Amigamad's avatar into the icon set?!?  :-D
