Actual star isn't modern and pretty. I've prepare some other version which could take place of actual star.

  • Milestone changed from 2.8.1 to 2.9

Doesn't this belong in WordPress.org the component?

the image appears in core at wp-admin/images/star.gif however does come from WordPress.org, both would need to be changed to make sense. I think this is superficial and does not need to be changed however i like straight.

Moving this over to WordPress.org then, since it's the only place it can get fixed. Even though that Component generally happens to be an oubliette. :-(

The star comes from the bbPress Ratings plugin.

Since the star is used within WordPress however, Why not suggest changing it to something else here, .org and the bbpress plugin can accept it then if they wish.

Simek: Can you just add a comment here that you're the original creator of the files, and that you're releasing the images under GPL(Or GPL-compatible licence)?
