FAQ 24: Update to include custom groups icons?

We were discussing stock answers over in entries, and I saw that there was a stock answer discussing the icon for custom groups and the fact that that info now displays. I figured it must have been added to the FAQ by now!

Nope.



Display of Security Levels



Many styles use two security level icons to indicate the security of an entry:

  • Friends-only or Custom entries are depicted with a lock:

  • Private entries with an eye:



However, some styles use different icons or text labels.





So here's my suggestion:



Display of Security Levels



Many styles use security level icons to indicate the security of an entry:

  • Friends-only and Custom entries are depicted with a single grey lock:

  • Private entries are depicted with an eye:

  • Custom entries you make are depicted with a double yellow lock when you view them:



However, some styles use different icons or text labels.



When you post an entry to one or more custom friends groups, the special Custom groups icon () and the list of the groups to which the entries are filtered are visible only to you. Members of your Custom friends groups will not be able to see whether or to whom an entry has been filtered; they will only see the icon or text label associated with Friends-only security.



Thoughts? Tweaks? Better wording for who sees what when?

[Oh, yeah-- I wasn't sure whether it was Custom friends groups, Custom Friends groups, or custom friends groups. -sigh- Someone might want to double-check the whole FAQ for the correct capitalization, if there is such a thing.]
