Suikosource does not have a web browser icon. We're thinking of changing this. But, this question is, what do we change it to?

We're thinking a rune would be the most logical thing and have narrowed down the options to our top favourite runes that would look good 16x16. But, we need your help to decide which rune it's going to be.

Edit: Poll accidentally reset on Dec 15. Please vote again if you've already done so.

I prefer the Blue Gate Rune, as it just looks pretty nice. My second would be the Earth Rune.

rune of beginning seems the most appropriate (maybe behind soul eater which isn't an option) but water rune shows up the best and therefore wins my vote

Pale Gate. I don't really like the idea of choosing one element over another, and Blinking and Beginning don't look very Suikoden-ish at that size.

Based on aesthetics I'd go with Fire.

Based on the rune itself, I'd prefer Beginning.

Hello.
To be honest, I'm not so excited by those previews. Pixels hurt me :S
If I had to choose I'd say Pale Gate too.

Why .gif anyway ? .png give more smoothy pictures and it can be converted in .ico as well.

I made a preview of three runes which seemed complicated as icon : Soul Eater, True Wind and Beast Rune.
But, in png, it gives that : Image

I guess it's not so bad.

Obviously, I didn't work on game-ripped images.
So if you're interested by other runes, I can do bright shield, true earth, true fire, true lightning, true water, pale gate, punishment, runes of beginning and I can probably find Black Sword. Well any runes actually, if I can find a good picture of it (pictures on suikosource are a bit blurred).

It's just to help, but if you don't care about that, no problem ^^

We do appreciate the advice. Those aren't necessarily the final versions of those graphics, we are working on sharpening them up.

Thanks, if you can create PNGs of the ones for the poll that would be great!
Soul Eater and True Wind don't look bad, huh. maybe we should rework the poll..

I don't think the Soul Eater with it's scythe/death icon is appropriate for the website when someone comes an doesn't know the earlier entries. I think it may give the wrong impression. However, I can ad True Wind to the list if you'd like. You can change your vote until the poll closes everyone so no worries if you already voted.

Edit: Apparently Editing the choices resets the poll, oops! Sorry everyone. I'll extend the voting for another week.

Oh well, I said (by pm) to KFCrispy I'll do all icons I can and I'll send you them or I'll share the file here.
I think it will be done on saturday so you'll see what you'll do with this poll (if you change it completely or not).

Anyway, now the poll is reset, I guess you can delay the vote for Saturday >.>

I'll vote RoB, to me it's the most iconic one of them all. The Soul Eater or the True Wind Rune came in close split second though.

Based on the current graphics, the Pale/Blue Gate one looks best. If you're going to move toward a different downsizing method, I'd rather see the Lightning/Thunder or Water/Flowing rune.
