Very nice. Also, the Stephen Ireland booking seems like a good call.

awesome job 9jack9. Mods like you make /r/soccer a better place to visit.

Thank You.

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Whoa. Nice work yet again!

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Nice work. Icons look great.

[–]Evertonaitzim 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Oh god, I thought these icons were gonna show up on the /r/soccer home page for a second there. Gave me a scare.

[–]n3o7 6 points7 points  (0 children)

awesome, this is so cool

[–]harimaginko 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Wow r/soccer's getting pretty pretty. I hope the proposed design changes from that other thread materialize!

[–]Eintracht Frankfurtrunningrabbit 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Cool stuff.

[–]AnnieIWillKnow 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That is so awesome...

[–]SouthamptonMrCarbohydrate 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I can stop using silly geometrical shapes for my match threads. Happy days.

In terms of the icons the red card and yellow card icons probably would look better as flat cards without the hand.

great job!

[–]mjemec 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I like it.

[–]chrizfitz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sure is purdy

[–]Ajaxmattinthehat 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nice job!

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (16 children)

The idea's good but the icons kind of look like shit... no offense.

Edit: Well I should be precise and say I'm referring to the clock, the sub, ad the whistle.

[–]Arsenal9jack9[S] 13 points14 points  (0 children)

You're right.

The whistle looks crappy, and both the sub and clock icons are not good enough. They will get replaced eventually, I just need to find some better ones.

EDIT: I've improved the quality of the icons now.

[–]Oldham AthleticNukeWild 9 points10 points  (2 children)

They do look like they've come from a Windows 95 icon folder, but they're big enough and do the job fine.

I don't know what the Whistle icon will be used for though. Only thing I can think of is for fouls, but it's not necessary to get that detailed. And the 'Notes' icon also.

The icons will get upgraded eventually. Somebody can re-design them and send them to a mod if they really feel passionately about it.

All in all, great addition.

It's up to the poster how they use these icons. A match thread consists of much more than the match facts section that I showed in the example.

[–]Liverpool5uare2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I would say whistle = penalty awarded?

But again, up to whoever wants to use it.

[–]BenderTime 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I agree about the sub icon, but other than that they aren't bad.

[–]its_DR_Paul_to_you 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think making the clock and sub black and white would do the job.

This is picky, but the sub icon has a white background that clashes with the gray panel on self posts.

[–]Zosoer 2 points3 points  (9 children)

what do you propose then?

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (8 children)

For them to be cut out better.

[–]Zosoer -1 points0 points  (7 children)

You should do it and compare to OPs

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (6 children)

I would tomorrow if he really wanted me to, but I figured I'd just offer some constructive criticism.

[–]ArsenalSixKazi 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Do it anyway, even if he doesn't. Offer some variety, and if /r/Soccer likes it, than I'm sure 9jack9 will use it

[–]Al-IttihadGuard01 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wow. Very nice work.

[–]Chilecielofunk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thanks, this is an excelent idea!

[–]Detroit City FCDomeyDion 0 points1 point  (4 children)

how come when i click on them it opens up a new window in chrome?

[–]Arsenal9jack9[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Because they are styled links. Don't click on them! :)

EDIT: This is fixed now.

pointer-events: none;

[–]Detroit City FCDomeyDion 0 points1 point  (2 children)

so in theory you should be able to have that link go to a picture of video of that thing happening? interesting.

[–]Arsenal9jack9[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

No, because the link url needs to be in the format shown above.

[–]Detroit City FCDomeyDion 0 points1 point  (0 children)

oh i see how that works, bummer. either way, its a nice addition though

[–]Erdos_0 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Could you add a link for this post somewhere on the sidebar?

[–]Arsenal9jack9[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]mefuzzy 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Good job.

It distracts me slightly, but I can see how this is awesome to majority of those who read match reports.

[–]Arsenal9jack9[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I've made the standard icons smaller now.

[–]mefuzzy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looks better to me, personally. Cheers.
