I already told you that I've fixed the border for the next version. It will be shaded based on the background and the result is a dark grey border for black backgrounds. I had tested with the current border on a dark theme prior to release and I thought it was fine, but then again, I don't use dark themes. That's why I'm changing it to be darker for those who use darker themes. (still light for light) Dealing with multiple different themes is always going to be a pain, as there's only so much testing I can do. Nobody in the beta complained about the theming prior to release.olduser wrote:Well, my case is even worse, with a dark theme.
OF COURSE I DIDN'T. Who the hell do you think I am? Do you expect me to have a wall of test machines or a focus group with their own computers? I tested on my Linux install, Windows XP, and in Windows in virtual machines (XP & 7). I don't have access to anything else so I did a beta test for a couple of months with upwards of 200 users. I set up a survey for everyone to rate the old flags and new flags and various other features and provide comments, all anonymously, and prompted every single one of them to fill out the survey. I got 5 replies, all positive. All of the people I had more direct contact with had no complaints. (e.g. ~40 translators) This is the maximum extent of what I am capable of doing. I was not capable of affording a computer that was even built this decade until a few days ago when donations started coming in for Flagfox. I don't have access to any large variety of computers to test on, by a longshot. I do not have a large social circle to test software for me.olduser wrote:Sadly it looks like you NEVER tested those new flags on any machine other than yours.
Some of those look like somebody put them together in MS Paint a pixel at a time. If that's what you like, good for you, but I personally think they're not that great and way too small. For example, you can recognize that this icon means US, but it certainly doesn't look like a US flag:olduser wrote:https://www.gosquared.com/resources/flag-icons/
If you're forced into a tiny space they're good, but I'm trying to use decent sized icons here because people kept complaining that they were too small. All the larger versions are too tall to fit.
It is nonetheless good to see an actually maintained set that looks competent (though there are some blurry/cramped ones in there, though few and far between). They do however have the problem of cramming everything into a very tiny space with wrong aspect ratios. They might be a good suggestion to replace the favicons used for Geotool, as we were not able to get exactly perfect icons from the new set into the tiny space. I'll suggest them to Richard at some point for that purpose. Thanks for the link.
