The icons are a fun but controversial part of Topix. I am curious about everyone's thoughts on the topic.

I think on the user forums idea, they should have given an icon-free option. There used to be some threads where the icons didn't carry over, and the option to give those didn't exist.

I also tend to think there should be a thumbs option. However, not as part of a game, but in lieu of the icons. Just a simply like or dislike and a tally for each. That way, a million thumbs down from one poster or a puppet gang won't prevent the 8 thumbs up from sincere posters from showing.

And there are several threads asking for icon proposals. A common request in those is for a "one finger salute."

Another option is a head with a phallus on it, since there are plenty of posters who are just that, AKA Richard Cranium.

Points, Props, Crowns,...

Some use the "racy" icon to mean "racist." So why not add a Klan robe or swastika as an icon?

(Actually, they won't be able to use that icon in Germany I guess, particularly not the swastika.)

What would that represent? An admonition to "don't be cruel?"

Maybe we could have a Scull and Crossbones or a Biohazard icon as a warning to others about a poster or a topic to stay clear of..

How about an icon of a "Fairy with a Tail",
Indicating someone who is trying to make others believe that what they are posting is the truth when the others obviously know that is not.

"I thought someone led me by the hand and showed me, by the light of a candle, a huge, loathsome insect, which he assured me was that very force, that very almighty, dumb, irresistible Power, and laughed at the indignation with which I received this information. In my room they always light the little lamp before my icon for the night; it gives a feeble flicker of light, but it is strong enough to see by dimly, and if you sit just under it you can even read by it. I think it was about twelve or a little past that night. I had not slept a wink, and was lying with my eyes wide open, when suddenly the door opened,........."

Trapped in an obelisk built to contain only pure beliefs

We tore the icons down off the barren walls

We had no choice but to take our falls, and damn it all

We can't except anything less than pure defeat

We have been put here by our peers and our fellow man

The fact we don't share their beliefs doesn't register on their scale

Instead they would rather run and impale

Die as martyrs or at least try and fail

Instead, I am going to do all that I can

To make life better for everyone I know

In the end I will not let you die alone

No one here has to put on a show

Lets rip apart our hearts like hyenas in the dark

Caring about nothing because the future looks so stark

Then I realize that I have torn the Icons down

I realize that I have navigated the pitfalls that lie around

What happens when you fall, do you really want to know?

Do you want the description of the horrors that you're shown

When you make the mistake of speaking to soon

When you realize that you might have something to lose

And you retract your former statements and sing a different tune

Tear those Icons down but don't you leave them lying around

Ready to corrupt and distort without evidence or sound

Destroy the Icons so the future generations may live in freedom

Don't contemplate your mission because their total control is near

Their control is the thing that we most have to fear

And it's clear we are at a disadvantage,

Easily manipulated and steered towards paths

More self destructive than they originally appeared

It is the Icons that are to blame

The remnants of the old times that bring us pain and shame.

That is why we smash them into dust

That's why we smash them because we must

When we break the Icons we dig our nails into the crust

That connects each and every one of us

Don't ever lie down to rest in the chamber of prayer

Don't ever let you guard down while passing through there

Because no one there seems to care

So all of us now, let us riot on the streets

Let us show them what we need to feel complete

Let us ask them for what we really want

Let us seek what we desire and refuse to stop

Or someone with a long nose (like Pinocchio).

I notice that someone polluted ever post I ever left in this forum with icons. I just wonder how much they are paid to icon people's posts. I'd gladly do it for $15/hr. or more.

Too bad I can't eat them. Yes, an icons and cheese sandwich might be good. Just as long as it isn't like in the joke about the vagina-flavored ice-cream. A guy said he invented that flavor and made a cone of it for a skeptical guy. The guy thought it tasted pretty good at first until he started licking near the bottom and suddenly started spitting. "It was good at first and now it tastes like s**t!" "That's what you get for licking too far down! You're tasting a**hole!"
