Tips of The Day, a feature from 6.3 version show bulb image and somehow with module image element which basically some PNG files and now stored at https://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/extras/source/tipoftheday/
Please make them theme-able by icon set so it hopefully will blend with the OS
Don't like the idea too much. TotD images can be defined on a per tip basis. Meaning "Why not donate to LibreOffice?" could be assigned to an image that shows coins or whatever. Idea was to a) draw attention, and b) illustrate the tip, eg. when talking about "marching ants".
These images are likely not proposed to be themed and therefore placed in an extra folder. If we now make the default bulb a theme image I'm afraid this confuses contributors. More opinions please.
I'm agree with theming the icon. And probably we can also create set of icons for Totd.

Talking about icon theme we had always use fallback strategy. So if we would like to --say-- introduce a new image we could set is as a fallback if a icon theme lack the similar image.
We should keep in mind also some situation like people with visibility issue which use Sifr icon should not "forced" to use such full-color bulb image. While monochrome color might decrease attention but sure it will help accessibility.
So let's do it.
The UI is here cui/uiconfig/ui/tipofthedaydialog.ui, the code there cui/source/dialogs/tipofthedaydlg.cxx
Re-evaluating the EasyHack in 2022
This enhancement is still relevant. In my opinion, light bulb emoji 💡 can also be used.
