I have a question that was marked as off topic: Has anyone come up with a Match Case icon?

How it was written, I certainly understand why it was marked that way.

I wrote an update to hopefully qualify it to be on topic.

Is it on topic at this point? If not, can you advise me on how to alter it to make it on topic?

Thanks so much for your help.

The problem is that it was decided years ago to disallow questions about icon suggestions. Outside of the site policy, I would like to allow questions about common icons (which would include this question), but until there is a consensus on amending the icon rules, any question about icons for x purpose is going to be off topic.

  • Thanks John. I've posted your recommendation here: meta.ux.stackexchange.com/questions/2087/… May 21, 2016 at 20:22
  • @JonW After years of no-icon questions, I've come to believe that we should allow questions about icons for common actions that would be applicable to other users. I recall finding some of the early icon questions quite useful (years ago), and I think it may be worth rethinking the position.
