As a followup to ["Custom question room avatars"](https://topanswers.xyz/meta?q=432), I would like to see roomicons on the main list view. Seeing the icons in the nav bar is great and all, but I don't immediately know what they mean. Adding roomicons to the list view would help me visually associate recent posts with the corresponding nav bar indicator. The experience of clicking on the orange numbered circle would go from seeing which room you land in by surprise to a more intentional (and thus satisfying) click.

It's worth mentioning that the nav bar icons do currently contain the title of the parent post in hover-over alt text. However the delay in rendering this results in a less satisfying experience. Why wait for the on-hover action to see what I'd see anyway if I just clicked on it?

By way of _very rough_ mockup - please see below (although I expect putting the icons on the left would make more sense)

I've come to think this would be confusing for new users, and not necessarily that helpful for old users, so  we are marking this `wont-fix`
Display roomicons on main list view

Pushing over is probably better, since then it could be kept open without covering other UI.
Jack Douglas replying to Adám
So it would pop out and overlay the chat panel like the W10 start menu? Or push everything over like the "Microsoft 365 admin center" and various other similar online sidebars?

@Jack Would it be possible to have a button to expand the right bar to include the titles, similar to how the Windows 10 start menu has a ≡ to reveal icon labels?

I'm *hoping* you're joking, and the message following this one that for me renders as just a box was meant to be an emoji or something. :-)

PeterVandivier replying to Monica
what about a comprimise? center justify the image and wrap the title text around? 
Monica
I would put the icons to the far right, like answerer gravatars.  Don't put them on the left; people read from left to right (in this language :-) ) and we shouldn't add that speed bump before people have even read the question title.
