Tiny update Alert!

People felt the need to prefix each and every topic with the technology they used, so I turned it into a label by default.

The current labels are:
   tech: libgdx, lwjgl, slick2d, android
   status: solved, chitchat

To acquire such a label image, either start the topic with a recognized label, or put the label between braces.

   [LibGDX] [LWJGL] take the scene by storm
       take the scene by storm

   [LibGDX] jaw dropping tech demo
       jaw dropping tech demo

   slick2d immediate mode plenty fast
       immediate mode plenty fast

   sumthin crashes when I run it outside of Eclipse [solved]
      sumthin crashes when I run it outside of Eclipse

   [chitchat] stay cool canada

Feedback is welcome.

more contrast would be nice. Almost can't distinguish the text inside the labels. Maybe it's just me.

I already saw them and found them really pleasing! Smiley

not the case for me, but if it's for others, maybe change it Smiley

Also agree, the text does not stand at too well on my screen. Why not just light grey text inside the boxes?

Maybe turn up your monitor contrast? I can see it fine.

There is no way for me to figure out what looks good on your monitor. Modify the label images and show me what you think looks good.

Basically the same, just with a little bit darker font.

Thanks. I think it's a tad too dark - tomorrow I'll fine tune it somewhere... in the middle Smiley

This is a really great feature!

Could we add an [unsolved] label? Maybe make it yellow?

That way if I am in a question-answering-mood I know at a glance which threads to pop into, or if I can't be bothered which ones to avoid  persecutioncomplex

My code never has bugs... it just develops unexpected features!

Well, as nobody uses [unsolved] in their title, it wouldn't quite work out that way. Smiley

Well, it would be nice if at least Java2d were covered. One for each technology that is widely used can't hurt this system.

The [Java2d] label is simply not used -- and using Java2D for games should be discouraged because it's so hard to squeeze acceptable performance out of it. I'm trying to follow demand, not shape behavior - as the former is so much less work than the latter Pointing

Eh, there are some of us guys out there who use it for the fun of optimising things.No Debates, Please!

Anyway, looks like a nice feature! Great work Riven. Cheesy

Now the only thing I can request is this: The 'Cheesy' icon should be a default emote, it just looks too cute!
Here's what I'm talking about by the way:

I do not cater to the einzelgänger, for there are too many in that club.

And I'm not going to change the default smiley, as that gives a different meaning to existing posts - people carefully pick their emoticons.

There has to be a way to tag those beginners, how about [help] in yellow as they post all over the place and not just in the newbie forums?

Again, if it is not currently used, it's not likely to be used in the future, so why put effort in a dozen more labels.

90% of posts are people asking for help, so really that is pointless. A label/tag is supposed to help specify the main subject.
