Topics are very difficult to symbolise. The icon you provide make me think to comments. The old one is a box with 2 drawers. Maybe you can find something newer like folders Confused:

Good point, I found a ready-made silver file cabinet. It looks decent.

I liked the stethoscope...


So did I. However, I'm not a graphics designer, in fact I'm not much of an artist either. So, a stethoscope is quite a complex object for me to draw. Maybe I'll try again later.

I tried to come up with something else for the "version check" icon, but really can't think of anything good. I drew a gauge for this today, but now I'm not too sure about it: http://www.placella.com/gl/icons/versioncheck.png
Good enough or has anyone got better ideas?

BTW, this is what the rest looks like so far: http://www.placella.com/gl/3.png

A tough one.

Here are some ideas off the top of my head. (I am not saying they are any better)

- Some sort of heartbeat indicator, maybe with a magnify glass
- Maybe the G part (with the paper clip) of the Geeklog logo and a magnify glass

Speaking of a Geeklog logo, we should also probably come up with a new favorite icon at some point. Something that represents Geeklog better than the current lightning bolt. Once again I am thinking of the G part of the logo unless someone else has a better idea?

I'll try this. It could be good.

Was thinking about this myself some time ago. I can give this a try, too.

Very nice work Rouslan.

Nice work, Rouslan! My compliments!

Here are some category icons, for your inspiration.

I like this one (except the lack of any color).

Had a look at this, but there is just too much detail for the paperclip logo to fit into a 16x16 square. Maybe just a paperclip? That would surely fit and will probably be more appropriate then the lightning bolt. Other ideas?

Another suggestion would be just the photo of the G or maybe just the blue part with the white G

Here's what I came up with for the topics: http://www.placella.com/gl/topics.png
There are two icons for "GL" and "GSOC" to choose from. Which ones do you prefer? Other comments?

Had a quick go at the favicon. Here's the result: http://www.placella.com/gl/favicon.png

Looks good.

For the topic icons I think I prefer topic_gl over topic_gl-2 since it is straight from our logo.

The fav icon is harder ... I am not sure which one I prefer as both of them are good ...

Very nice.

I would suggest some sort of check mark for the GL Version test. As for the topics, a rolodex comes to mind and one of those old fashioned personal phone directories (Slide to the letter and click to flip open).
