Lots of ways to get involved with Fork Awesome

Having trouble getting Fork Awesome up and running? Something not working the way you think it should?

  1. Make sure you've read the latest version of how to get started.
  2. Since Fork Awesome is based on Font Awesome, check out the existing questions tagged as Font Awesome over on Stack Overflow. Other folks might have had the same question you've had.
  3. Can't find the answer to your question on Stack Overflow? Ask a new question, then.

New icons mostly start as requests by the Fork Awesome community on GitHub. Want to request a new icon? Here are some things to keep in mind:

  1. Please be nice. Fork Awesome is a happy place.
  2. Please search to see if your icon request already exists. If a request is found, please add a 👍 reaction to that one.
  3. Please make requests for single icons, unless you are requesting a couple of strictly related icons (e.g., thumbs-up/thumbs-down).
  4. Please and thank you if you include the following:
    • Title your new issue Icon request: icon-name (e.g., Icon request: icon-car).
    • Include a few use cases for your requested icon. How do you plan on using it?
    • Attach a single color image or two that represent the idea you're going for.
  5. Request concrete objects: it's harder to make an icon to represent happiness, it's easier to make a smiley face.
