Say I'm showing buttons and next to certain people (the super admins), what would be the best icon to convey this meaning?

Currently I'm using a star icon, which definitely works, but I'm just wondering if there is anything that could be more fitting, and is more of a standard in this area.

  • Questions requesting Icon Suggestions are off topic. While the subject of icons is on topic, there's very little value in soliciting suggestions for a specific icon in a specific context. See this meta post for more information about this topic.

  • Thanks for letting me know, I wasn't sure how the guidelines for this specific stack exchange community were run Mar 25, 2015 at 21:13

    Brian, not your fault. This is a major UX problem with StackExchange itself, because the site doesn't do a good job of communicating guidelines!

I would recommend using a Crown icon to give that more human feelings since you are assigning that icon to a person. A super admin is the king!

    As someone commented on my original post, this was sort of opinionated and probably not within the guidelines of this community, but even so, this was exactly what I was looking for, and I hope that this helps someone in the future regardless. Thanks! Mar 25, 2015 at 21:12
  • I'm happy that you liked that :)

  • UX (and design) is a language. Keeping that language consistent is key to good UX. I appreciate the question and this answer. I don't think it's off topic at all. I look forward to seeing this 'language' applied everywhere so we can all communicate intention visually and consistently. Cheers!
