I don't care which logo we use.
If you are going to DebOOonK an expert then you have to at least provide a source with credentials of equal or greater relevance. Even then, it merely shows that some experts disagree with each other.

Okay, a much-awaited update and a request for comments!

So far, Daniel agreed to pretty much all our demands, with the notable exception of which logo to use in the post-reunification forum. Our proposal was to hold a vote after the reunification to determine which logo should be used. Their stance is that we should firmly stick to their logo, claiming that it's an integral part of the society's visual identity, and that it's easy to use in one-colour screen printing.

For the time being, I've done my best to address their concerns and made another case for the vote. That said, if the community would prefer their logo, or doesn't care about being able to choose, then perhaps this isn't something that even needs to be discussed? What do you guys think: should we have a logo vote?

FWIW, I can easily create a 1-color version of the new logo, print quality for screen printing, so that's not an issue of the new identity.  I personally like this one more, I feel it's a little classier, but I'm not opposed to a vote.

I'd prefer a vote, but if it's really so important to them, then I wouldn't mind just sticking with the old logo.

I don't care either way. I don't really like our current logo for various reasons (and I've proposed an alternative to pizaa but he rejected it) and I don't mind using the old logo, but if people like the current one more then vote away.

Perhaps post the alternative somewhere other people can comment on it?

That's not strictly true. Nonetheless, Parsifal's suggestion seems appropriate.

Our logo is better but it isn't a deal breaker not to use it.

Personally, I think that I like the logo here a little better, but I wouldn't consider it a deal-breaker to stick with the old one.

I like this logo a lot better, but I am willing to part with it for reunification. I vote for a vote.

I'd like not to reunify. However, being as things are progressing at the speed of Daniel, I don't think I have much to worry about any time soon.

I sort of agree with Daniel, so it's of no consequence to me.

Yes, Thork, we've heard you the last x times you've said it. Do understand that we're going with what the majority wants here. And no, we're not counting your voice multiple times just because you keep repeating it.

If you have any strong views about the logo discussion, now would be a good time to state them.

I think Daniel should keep his logo and we should keep ours.

I think [TFES] should keep [its] logo and [ I ] should keep [mine].

I agree.

Something that should probably be clarified prior to the vote (and which I will bring up in the email exchange) is whether or not Daniel thinks you guys are asking him to change the logo on the main site and merchandise, or if he is happy to let the forum have its own visual identity. I'm not entirely sure, but I suspect people may be talking about slightly different things. I'll send a quick clarifying email later, just to make sure we're all on the same page.

A very fair point, I hadn't thought of that.

I say we have two logos, just as NASA has two logos. There's the "meatball" logo which is more for public display and consumer use, and then there's a more formal logo for VIP events, award presentations, and press conferences.
