it is NOT clearly better at all

if this was on the Find A Tournament page this would be, like, totally awesome man. where it is chap has said it is an improvement for TD's but for players it is a duplication of information already available on that page.

Duplicate information but it's much easier to find new tournaments to look for a little green circle rather than having to read each date. It is definitely an improvement though you just would rather have them focus on different improvements.
taking a break from cc, will be back sometime in the future.

You're wanting a solution that requires lack to code. Topic icons were simply a flip of the switch by Andy. We would ALL love to be able to get more coding out of lack, but that's a luxury we don't usually get. Please go take those problems up with him and quit blaming us for not being able to code the updates that you would like.

We have updated the OP to reflect the addition of these new icons. I would like to thank thenobodies80 for help with this and AndyDufresne for facilitating the process.

I suppose I'll get used to it eventually. For now, however, I'm finding it really distracting. It really pulls the eye away from the Title of the thread.

I preferred the colored dots to these. They were easier to see at a glance and less distracting.

I am not sure what to think yet, but it is "busy" that is for sure. I guess I will sorta tune then out as they are distracting to me. Lets see what I think in a few weeks time. Thanks for the update.
