"Doom Reaction Icons" in new forum system.

Recommended Posts

I've wondered since this new layout started if there was really a difference in which style of "like" one chooses. I get that megasphere is more powerful than soulsphere but why invulnerability sphere and invincibility sphere? Is there really a meaning or difference in all of the rest? If its possible to have more can we? Something that clearly represents like and dislike, such as maybe a dying player sprite or something? or other possible emotions or verdicts? I've tried to think of some and I think I just answered my own question. That would probably end up meaning they would have to be non-doom sprites to make up a lot of different meanings.

Man I sure wonder how this subject is brought up so often.

 

No, there is no difference between the spheres, it is purely cosmetical. Unless you decide to give them meaning, in which case, there's already topics on the subject. I'm personally fine with this system.

I forgot I even posted this. Sorry I brought it up again I honestly tried to find a thread dedicated to it already before posting but came up short.

Lately I've been wondering if status bar faces would be better. New weapon grin for posts you like. Ouch face for posts that surprise you. Continuous fire grimace for posts you disagree with. And more?

I don't react to posts. It's more simple.

To me it goes like this: 

Megaspher like: gives you 200% health and armor. It means a valuable like!!!

Invulnerability like: makes you invulnerable, but just for short time. It means a limited like.

Invisibility like: makes you invisible, so nobody can see you for a short time. It means a limited like.

Soul Shere: gives you 100% health. Valuable like but not like Megasphere which is more.

 

But as @seed said... it is purely cosmetical. I think it is just people choice. My brother always give Invulnerability spheres, I've seen others that always give invisibility, invulnerability or Soul Spheres. I always like to give Megaspheres besides it has a Mancubus inside.

I was about to suggest simply adding the grin and O face but I’ve been beaten to it! I think the whole point of the current “no clear cut meaning” system is an effort to reduce potential drama though.

Hey, which reminds me.  Whatever happened to the exploding Doomguy head?  Or was it just a Playstation exclusive?  It was the only place I've ever seen it.

 

Hmmm... Curious minds want to know.

I just do it at random if I like the post. I was hoping they had no meaning myself.

Hmm, I guess I would interpret them something like this:

 

Soulsphere     -> Like

Megasphere    -> Mega Like

Invisibility       -> Stealth Like

Invulnerability -> Godlike

 

Though, personally, I don't bother with the variants.

My interpretation:

 

Soulsphere     -> ordinary vanila like

Invisibility       -> I see what you did / I read it

Invulnerability -> Lol, ha-ha, awesome

Megasphere    -> Whoah!

In light of the confusion and ambiguity over the power-up spheres, I move that we move to a much more clear and iconic form of Doom-based reaction iconography: SP_FACE1.

 

Just check out the rich and untapped possibilities of this reaction format in the following real world mockup:

The usual expression is "inquiring minds"; and if they really want to know they go to the wiki.
