No offense meant to Kanaru who uploaded them, but the new goblin small icons aren't very good: IconSmall Goblin Male.gif / IconSmall Goblin Female.gif Does anyone else think they could be improved? The male one looks more like the old Warcraft III style than the new Cataclysm look.

Here are the ones they replaced:!IconSmall_Goblin_Male.gif /!IconSmall_Goblin_Female.gif The previous male one by Varghedin looks pretty good, but the coloration of the female one seems off. --Gengar orange 22x22.pngBeware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 11:02 PM PST 14 Sep 2009

I say we go back to the old ones, then when we get the new models update them then. Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony! (Sssss/Slithered) 00:59, September 15, 2009 (UTC)
Same here, don't understand why it was changed.--Lon-ami (talk) 16:10, September 16, 2009 (UTC)
I think it would be better to keep the old ones and then, when cataclysm comes out, upload the new ones with other name. Just like the high elves and blood elves that have alternate icons. Benitoperezgaldos (talk) 16:34, September 16, 2009 (UTC)
Lon-ami - new character models I expect (and maybe also the disturbing shade of green of the goblin female). Kirkburn  talk  contr 11:35, September 17, 2009 (UTC)
I reverted the images to Varghedin's original versions. I moved Kanaru's versions to:
IconSmall Goblin2 Male.gif File:IconSmall_Goblin_Male_Alt.gif / IconSmall Goblin2 Female.gif File:IconSmall_Goblin_Female_Alt.gif.
Kanaru's male goblin doesn't look like the new models anyway, but more like the WC3 goblins. --Gengar orange 22x22.pngBeware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 11:16 PM PST 22 Sep 2009
See my note at File talk:IconSmall Goblin Male Alt.gif. It is from a bit of concept art.--SWM2448 23:18, September 22, 2009 (UTC)
It's possible, but the concept art has the goblin facing the other direction and the hood is not covering the eyes. --Gengar orange 22x22.pngBeware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 12:05 AM PST 23 Sep 2009
It is from the concept art. If it is facing the other direction it was mirrored, maybe I did that, I don't remember. If not, then the source was mirrored, which as a very easy thing to change.

This all makes me think, anyone seen/got any pictures of the login screen? Wish I'd taken a pic of it when there, though it only has the male version atm. Or, perhaps we could use the Hallowe'en masks they added a while back (I talk of these) Kirkburn  talk  contr 22:08, October 20, 2009 (UTC)
