FavIcon for ReachMahjong.com

Postby wavemotion » Fri Aug 24, 2012 4:11 pm

I noticed the ReachMahjong.com has no favicon. That's the little 16x16 icon that shows in the web browser and also when a person bookmarks a page.

Image

You can see the missing icon for ReachMahjong.com. It's a small deal, obviously, and one some sites don't bother with. But in case the site principals want one, I've asked a friend (who specializes in these things) to design one based on the slightly off-axis Red Dragon in the current ReachMahjong.com logo.

It's here: Image

That's not the logo simply reduced and cropped to 16x16 (which would look awful) but a ground-up design based on your logo. The background is completely transparent and the PNG should be simple to convert to an ICO. It is designed slightly lighter in color so that it isn't distracting when shown just ahead of the site URL. You're free to use it (or not use it) as you see fit.

To see what it would look like on this page:

It would be nice if this icon could be implemented. RM is the only link in my Chrome favourites bar without one.

I've never noticed the forum lacks it.
Actually, RM.com site does have a favicon. Look at the main page Image


the PNG should be simple to convert to an ICO

There is a free online tool for it: ConvertIcon.
Unfortunately, it fails to convert correctly your file.
(These fools include the transparency bitmap mask on an icon who have an alpha channel.
Not a big problem for someone who know how .ico files are coded and can edit files in hexadecimal. 8))

I like the icon you friend designed. I it is true about the color. Great job with your suggestions and actions! I hope any of this will help boost activity around here.

hahahaha

Without seeing this thread I just did exactly the same thing!!!

http://mahjonginmame.com/favicon.zip

Unzip and drop into the site root directory if your host will allow it.

***edit*** the favicon.ico needs to be moved from /en and/or /ja to the site root folder e.g. http://reachmahjong.com

HTH

Cheers,

Ralph.

FWIW, I've reported this problem to Jenn one month ago (for her to report it to "the tech guy") and I still haven't any news.

Thanks for the efforts, Shi. Hopefully we'll get it in place eventually!

I've got a life sign from Jenn!

Thanks Sylvain,

I've finally got time to do all of this tonight!

Also we will restart the podcast weekly starting in October!

Thanks so much,
Jenn

Knowing Jenn, "tonight" may as well means "in one week".
