Time to Start Thinking About New Icons

Yes, the time has come to start thinking about what new icons we want available on Stickymap.  We’re going to look at a few factors in determining which are a priority.  First, we’ll take a look at the thumb tacks, which are generally used when no other option is available.  If there are a lot of tacks for a certain type of place, then I feel that’s a good indicator that a new icon is necessary.  We’ll also be looking at which icons can bolster the value of our Community Group Tool, the details of which we have not yet released.  And finally, we’ll be taking input from our testers and most importantly our users to find out what new options people would like to see.  In addition, we’re going to be upgrade some of our older (and lower-quality images) so if you have that kind of request, we’d like to hear about it as well.

Feel free to use this blog post for your input, or to email us directly.

    I’d like to see an icon for ski areas, as well as one for nautical locations (like boat houses, marinas, or yacht clubs)

    Thanks, Aaron. I’ll add those to our list.

    Most of the icons are pretty clear, afew are not.
    Apartment and condominium are pretty much the same thing.
    What is depicted in the “Auditorium” icon?
    What happened to the “Advertising Agency” icon?
    An easy addition would be a couple more colors for pins.
