Idea: Status icons on Site Features Queue board to cater for colour-blindness. Date: June 2015 Suggested by: GoldenCelebi Defined by: ACWWFreakazoid, AnnetteSR, Dimentio95, errorcode3000, GoldenCelebi, iolite, Liv909 Coded by: ACWWFreakazoid, Dimentio95 Release expected: August 2017 [1.15.0]
Outline: This board, the Site Features Queue, is a place where we list all features that Staff are discussing, working on, or have worked on. Each thread is at a different stage of completion, and this is shown by different coloured light bulb icons next to each thread. Only certain threads, with particular coloured light bulb icons, can be posted on by Members if they want to contribute to the feature. However, for colour-blind Members, it's not easy to distinguish which threads can be posted on as all threads have the same shape of icon next to them. We've now changed the shapes and types of icons so that it's easier for everyone to see which discussions they can be involved in.
The new shapes and what they denote, are as follows:
Yellow Speech Bubble - Feature is in Discussion or Voting Blue Plus Sign - Feature is Accepted Blue Arrow Pointing Right - Feature has been moved to the Dev Work List Orange Hammer - Feature is In Development or In Feature Testing Orange Spanner - Features is In Dev Testing or In Release Testing Green Tick - Feature has been deployed and is Live Red Cross - Feature has been Rejected
