Mobile diff view, which shows both icons

Using mobile while logged in, I noticed that there is a very similar user icon for representing Notifications and for representing users on the mobile watchlist. Rather than use two very slightly different icons, can we just use the "registered user" icon from the mobile watchlist, but scaled up?
Comment 1 Maryana Pinchuk 2013-09-04 16:57:24 UTC
The current notifications icon you're seeing is just a placeholder that Juliusz initially added to beta, not something design came up with :) We do have a real notifications icon that should definitely go in its place sooner than later.

If a design is provided this should be an easy fix. Can someone upload an asset to this bug?

I was just thinking we could pick one of the two icons already in use on the mobile site? (See the attached screenshot.)
Comment 5 May 2013-09-24 19:38:43 UTC
We should use only one, let's use the one shown at the top right corner. I believe Juliusz already has the asset since he made it?
Comment 6 Jon 2013-09-24 22:27:22 UTC
We would need to resize the image used for Echo but happy to use this if this is the one to go with.
Comment 7 Vibha Bamba 2013-09-24 23:55:31 UTC
This is a list of places where profile icon will appear:
Left Navigation
Watchlist Diff View

The issue with making it consistent is that we also have to think of it as a system:

Anonymous user
Logged out user
Logged in user
Logged in with Notifications

We have some assets but we don't have consensus on it for all areas. 
Lets not rush into updating the watchlist view etc for now.

Im setting up a review to resolve this and will update this bug.

Comment 8 Jon 2013-09-24 23:56:42 UTC
Note the existing icon is black and in the left menu it won't need to be white.
Comment 9 Vibha Bamba 2013-09-25 00:13:10 UTC
You mean it will need to be white ? ( Considering the background is black )
Comment 10 Jon 2013-09-25 00:30:23 UTC
Yup sorry.. autocorrected (typed from my phone)

Comment 13 Steven Walling 2013-10-18 20:57:05 UTC
Reopening since the bug for mobile is fixed, but there's still an inconsistent user icon on desktop. I'll attach a screengrab.

Comment 16 Jon 2013-10-23 15:39:27 UTC
Moving to Vector where that code exists..
Comment 17 Bartosz Dziewoński 2013-10-23 16:51:45 UTC
This report is about the MobileFrontend extension, and the design there has been apparently adjusted. The report about core is bug 41484. Please keep the two separate and this one closed.
