Hi Jaison,

Others have suggested that too. It's possible we could increase them a little bit, but they're often used in contexts (e.g. lists of names) where larger icons would significantly disrupt the layout. We could have different versions for different contexts, and/or do  more with text links.

Anybody else have input on this?

I am not bothered as much by size but i am constantly cliking on one i dont want because of the spacing and my huge fingers on my touch screen...
Hi Chris,

I think it is possible for the icon to appear enlarged when the pointer is 'rolled over' the (small) icon.  I have seen this in other applications but I don't know how it is done.

Kevin, the way it is done is to have 2 different icons - one for normal display and another one that is displayed on what is called a "mouseover event", so it would be easier just to have the larger icon without the hocus-pocus (otherwise known as overhead) to change it dynamically.

Chris, I thought it was my geriatric eyes, but I cannot make out what those icons are, or even differentiate between them - they are all teensy green blobs to me.  Perhaps if they were a different color, with sharper contrast, it would be enough.  Also, when you mouseover them, you do see the text of what they are, which is a great help.
