Change bubble speech icon to tray icon
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Per that comment T135114#2476359 and the following, it is now time to change the bubble speech icon by the tray icon to remove the idea of "messages" when you click on the "notices" badge.

I've set priority as high, because CLs receive feedback about that inconstancy.

The tray icon is still on discussion for polishing: T135114: Review "tray" icon - that discussion is stalled at the moment because of vacations. When the polishing is done, the icon will be changed again.

As a reminder, the new icon:

I see an alignment problem for the "99+ notices" scenario:

@Etonkovidova, I heard some talk today about Nick's comment re. 99+ above. Before I close this, was that turned into a separate ticket?

@jmatazzoni - I filed it as a separate issue T142454: Notices tray icon with 99+ needs more space since it's a specific bug.
'99+' case (since it occupies three spaces) looks a little bit tight:

There is comments about the tray icon. Most of time people don't understand the meaning of that icon.

  • on en.wp ("bikini top")
  • on fr.wp ("rear of my car")
  • on de.wp ("subway face")

OK, I'm closing this but have opened a separate ticket to evaluate icon design, T142511.
