    When would we use the WordPress 2.7 version in I know that it comes at the end of this month, but what is the exactly day?

  2. Paul Roman

    Now that’s what I’m talking about. Really neat icons :)

  3. slartie

    Well deserved. I can’t wait to see 2.7. Good job all.

  4. ibdesignsusa

    Very good sets. That’s what I voted for. Good choice

  5. Dalibor

    Really great results! Thanks for the opportunity to help you and influence this project and thanks all designers for the superb work.

    Wow…that’s really too close to make a decision in the business world. If democracy counted.

    I’ve been in style decision meetings that close and we always ended up with the traditional tiebreaker: whichever design the boss preferred.

    • Jane Wells

      You’ve been in style decision meetings with 3700 people?

      In all seriousness, I think our voting was very democratic: the popular vote had a clear winner (ask any pollster and they’ll tell you 35% to 29% is not a tie), and the judges agreed with the popular vote, so there were no complicated decisions to make.

  7. thriveblogger

    Glad to see that there appeared to be a major consensus on the icons and metaphors.
    I am very much looking forward to 2.7.

  8. V

    Cool appearance. I can’t wait for it.

  12. Fairchild_13

    Yeah! VS, VS,VS! ^^

  13. siezy

    My two favorites were by far VS and LS. To me they were not only visually comfortable, but they were also the most directly obvious to my eyes at a glance as to what they meant. That’s just my opinion though. Haha! Congrats to the winners! :)

  14. Justrokstar

    Awesome! I’m Looking Foward For The New WP. :)

  21. qidis

    congratulation to the winner.
    Training me…..

  22. allforblue

    Good idea and great icons

  23. foobarph

    this is a good chance for us to gain more writers by letting them see the new stuffs from WP dashboard. i mean, the current dashboard has a simple effect. but with these icons… it will totally makeover everything. (i hope we still have the option to choose whether we want a iconless or w/ icons dashboard

  24. glipkeriokistomerces

    I said 2 months ago:
    “Some category icons will help more but …wow fast improvements!”
    Now I see that realized……thanks a lot.

  25. caffeinefiend

    They’re all excellent, but I do think the right choice was made as the winner – congratulations everyone!

  32. Nibu Thomas

    I like the “comments” item with a red balloon tip, makes new comments noticeable.

  33. raginginnocence

    Really easy to work with and I have written some stuff that I’d love other bloggers to read. So far I’ve had little response. How do I make my blog more accessible, more ‘out there’?
    I’m new to this , as is probably very apparent!
