Angry X is overkill[edit]

"Not done" being a bright red angry cross alters the tone of a status list from "Haven't got to this yet" to "Danger someone has screwed up, failing grade, No soup for you!". Sample:

  • Yes Done Initial brainstorming and user research
  • Yes Done Defining the scope of the first release
  • In progress In progress Build interactive prototype
  • N Not done Community testing and feedback
  • N Not done Limited, opt-in release on select WikiProject discussion spaces

The icon could be changed from {{cross}}, but the state remains ambiguous – is "Not done"!!! a final verdict or a temporary state? Maybe we need a Template:Not yet

Thanks for the templates, I miss them on other wikis. S Page (WMF) (talk) 01:47, 11 October 2013 (UTC)

I agree the message is ambiguous both from the icon and the text. I'm not sure how to solve it, though. "Not yet done"? "To do"? Perhaps the latter, in addition to the current "not done", would work well. What do you think? --Waldir (talk) 11:31, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
Maybe something like this? Yellowpin.svg To do --Waldir (talk) 12:35, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
Update: implemented as {{to do}} --Waldir (talk) 20:54, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
