Go back to using satellite dish for feeds
Short, concise description of the idea
Use the old satellite dish icon next to the username of a feed rather than the Firefox/MS feed icon
Full description of the idea
Although the Firefox/MS feed icon is good as an icon for linking to an RSS/Atom feed, it does not work well or look good when used next to the feed username (cf stephdiary). The old "satellite dish" icon worked much better in this context, and should be brought back.
- The satellite dish icon is in neutral colours and doesn't jar as much as the new orange icon when displayed in running text.
- Users may expect the orange icon to link to a feed rather than to the user information page for the LJ syndicated version of that feed; the satellite dish icon has no similar expectation.
