Homepage icon - feedback

Recommended Posts

Hello.

 

xat would like to know your opinion regarding the newly added homepage icon on html5 (available on version march 30, 2020).

 

It currently looks as follows:

Compared to Flash, there's no background on the icon.

 

Questions to you are:

  • Should the icon be smaller/bigger?
  • Should there be a background button (as Flash)?
  • If yes to background, should the background color match the chat button colors?
  • Should the icon be hidden by default? Maybe it should appear upon hover?
  • Anything else you can think of?

Thank you, we're looking forward to your input!

1. I agree with Cupim, it should be smaller;

2. Since its a "redesign" I think it would be better on the left side of the nick, its better because when nicks are too big people cant see the homepage. This will also make the design clean and user friendly.

If I have input I would suggest putting it on the chat next to "sign in" and "sign out"

If the icon itself appears upon hover, then I'd just line it up with the current nickname (it seems to be slightly displaced). Since it won't be on the screen if this gets added, then I don't think it's needed to change the size of the icon. In case you decide not to showing it upon hover, it should be definitely be smaller.

I like the homepage, a little bit smaller would be good. I agree with cupim's proposal.

Also, can the URL be closer to the icon?

Another idea could be to have a few different ways for the users to choose which layout they want with a "screenshot" example :)

Smaller like @Cupim's example.
I think that having it on the right side is still better. Having it right after the pawn would be weird.
As a redesign, it seems better without the background button.
I think the hidden and hovering or not hidden could be an user choice.

Should there be a background button (as Flash)? Yes, because it's easily to users know that is a button.

If yes to background, should the background color match the chat button colors? yes, exactly to fit with the chat, it could be NICE.

Should the icon be hidden by default? Maybe it should appear upon hover? nah, it should show up always.

should it be smaller? yes it should @Cupim, also a url closer to the HOMEPAGE like @Leandro said. it could to prevent scammers/third urls malicious.

The same idea, it should be smaller and in the right side not after the pawn.

I think if it was a little smaller it would look perfect.

The design for it is fine imo. I think the only changes it really needs is as Cupim said, make it smaller and as Danny said, move the link closer to the home icon.
