agree with Amy

Adding these icons to the comments to answers could also help askers, and future users of the databank

Click on a question - the icons are next to the answerers' names on the individual question pages (not the main list).

why not a flag? Aug 18, 2005

thank you, Amy.

I think my comp took its time to accept the new functionalityicon_smile.gif
I can see the icons now.

I don't like the appereance of the icon, though. I'd prefer a straight-forward national flag. What do you think?

I think it would over-complicate matters and risk upsetting people. What flag would you choose for English (to pick an obvious example)? Portugese? Looking at it the other way, what language would an Indian or Chinese flag represent? I think the "N" is just fineicon_smile.gif

Smiley? Aug 18, 2005

You're right. I suggest maybe a smiley : o ) or : - ) (without the spaces) if you're native in the target language?
With additional info to read, as we have now. Would that be OK?

Highlighted icons Aug 18, 2005

I know this may be really obvious but I just don't see it. Why are some of the icons highlighted and some are not?

Thanks,

Cali

It appears that you get a yellow background to your "N" if you're platinum, and grey if you ain't.

The only "icon" I see is the blue ribbon for platinum members, but that is it! Am I missing something?

Yellow or grey - verified native or not Aug 18, 2005

I don't think Platinum or not is the distinction.
The colors of the native icons on the KudoZ questions are the same as the colors on the person's profile page. Yellow means verified native, grey means unverified. If you specified two languages as your native, both will be unverified.
There was more info and discussion about this a while ago, when the native specification was introduced.

Despite this explanation, I do not know what the discussion is about. How about showing me where these icons are on the following page:
